The Richest Man Who Ever Lived Simon & Schuster US

The life and times of the wealthiest man who ever lived - Jacob Fugger - the Renaissance banker who revolutionized the art of making money and established the radical idea of pursuing wealth for its own sake.§§Jacob Fugger lived in Germany at the turn of the sixteenth century, the grandson of a peasant. By the time he died, his fortune amounted to nearly two percent of European GDP. Not even John D. Rockefeller had that kind of wealth.§§Most people become rich by spotting opportunities, pioneering new technologies, or besting opponents in negotiations. Fugger did all that, but he had an extra quality that allowed him to rise even higher: nerve. In an era when kings had unlimited power, Fugger had the nerve to stare down heads of state and ask them to pay back their loans - with interest. It was this coolness and self-assurance, along with his inexhaustible ambition, that made him not only the richest man ever, but a force of history as well. Before Fugger came along it was illegal under church law to charge interest on loans, but he got the Pope to change that. He also helped trigger the Reformation and likely funded Magellan's circumnavigation of the globe. His creation of a news service, which gave him an information edge over his rivals and customers, earned Fugger a footnote in the history of journalism. And he took Austria's Habsburg family from being second-tier sovereigns to rulers of the first empire where the sun never set.§§The ultimate untold story, The Richest Man Who Ever Lived is more than a tale about the richest and most influential businessman of all time. It is a story about palace intrigue, knights in battle, family tragedy and triumph, and a violent clash between the 1 percent and everybody else. To understand our financial system and how we got it, it pays to understand Jacob Fugger.

Family in Edward Albee's plays 'The Sandbox' and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' GRIN Verlag

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, printed single-sided, grade: 1,3, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald (Department of English and American Studies), course: Modul Specialisation, language: English, abstract: The American dramatist Edward Albee is going to celebrate his 80th birthday these days. In his life he observed several decades of American society as well as changes in attitudes and values of the American population. In almost all of his plays Edward Albee looks at the American family and its various manifestations, criticises it, mocks it, and reveals its dishonesty. His plays frequently contain the figure of the child which ranges from that of the adopted infant, real or imagined baby, young man, dead child, imaginary person, to that of grown-up homosexual son (Cristian 1). The figure of the child is often understood as the alter ego of Edward Albee (Cristian 6).Shortly afterwards his birth on March 12 1928 Albee was adopted by a wealthy couple. The family was part of the New York high society and tried to bring up their son to be a respectable constituent of this community. Edward Albee sensed early that he was not the couple s biological son. He experienced several conflicts with his parents who disapproved of his lifestyle, interests, sexual orientation and acquaintances. After some years at various boarding schools and colleges, Albee finally and abruptly left home and broke ties with his adoptive parents in 1949. Albee took employment as runner in an advertising agency, sales clerk in a music shop, bookseller-assistant, waiter in convenience restaurant and telegram deliverer for Western Union. His various occupations not only allowed him to write but through his jobs he was able to observe quite a number of different people and lifestyles. In an interview about his plays and the assumed analogousness of his plays he said: You must remember I ve been watching and listening to a great number of people for a long time. Absorbing things, I suppose. (Flanagan 8). He not only observed other people but also his experiences influenced his plays strongly. Albee seems to have observed especially families and the relationships between the members of families as well as the traditional but also slowly breaking image of husband and wife. The purpose of this term paper is to analyse the picture of the white American family in Albee s The Sandbox (1959) and Who s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1962) in contrast to the prevailing ideal of the white nuclear family of the 1950s and 1960s and to ask to what extent his characters fulfil this ideal.

Man Versus Ball Potomac Books

Jon Hart is not a professional athlete. His one major sports victory is a world championship in roller basketball, which is basketball on in-line skates. More than ten years ago, he started pursuing his own bucket list and embarked on a hilarious and insightful journey into the furthest reaches of the sports world. Man versus Ball follows Hart's adventures around the country as he undertakes new missions, often with unexpected results. He became a pro wrestler, learning "fake" moves that all but landed him in the hospital after one pile driver too many. He played an entire season for a championship semipro football team, suited up as a U.S. Open ball boy, and was an "amateur caddie" for a Professional Golfers' Association tournament. He attended mascot school and performed in a neon gorilla suit in front of several thousand fans at a minor league hockey game. He worked as a ballpark vendor at several venues around the country, hawking concessions while fending off drunken fans. He even earned a bit of glory for himself, leading his roller basketball league in rebounds for two consecutive seasons. Feeling confident, he took part in the World Cup of roller soccer. All this prepared him for his moment of truth, that is, a race up the 1,576 stairs of the Empire State Building. A George Plimpton - style excursion into the unknown, Man versus Ball will delight and inspire readers who have secretly yearned to cross items off their life's to-do list.

Man v Fat is a practical and supportive resource for men, written by a normal man who just wanted to lose some weight. One day Andrew Shanahan took a guttie to text to a mate. But once he had taken the picture he couldn't stop looking at it. The sheer horror of it forced him to wake up and realise how unhappy he was about his body and then resolve to change it. He soon realised that the dieting industry had turned its back on men. Men were expected to get fit, tone up and turn fat into a six-pack in six weeks. But there was nothing for men who simply didn't want a beer belly any more. In Man v Fat, Andrew Shanahan breaks down weight loss into its essential components. Based on his own experiences and research into the world of dieting and dietitians, this book will tell men what they need to know about losing weight, demystifying the nonsense around the subject and arming readers with everything they need to win their own battle against fat. Man v Fat is about three steps: 1. Understand why you got fat. 2. Learn how to lose weight. 3. Create a winning structure. Chapters include: What happened? Why am I fat?; The science of weight loss explained (it's comically simple); Getting your head right; Which diet is right for you; Sweating it out; The ways you are going to screw this up - and how not to; My mate says; The Essential Weight Loss Equipment; Your plan for a perfect month.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

David Wilkerson Zondervan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the story of David Wilkerson, the man who believed against the odds that God could do great things in the rejected and ignored of New York City, who refused to give up on those on the streets even when they had given up on themselves, and who saw in the eyes of the drug addicts and gang members what others failed to see-the love of Jesus Christ. But who was David Wilkerson? Many Christians don't really know. More often than not, we saw the fruit of his faith in God rather than the man himself. When Wilkerson moved to New York from rural Pennsylvania in 1958 to confront the gangs who ran the streets, he was a skinny, 120-pound man. After the initial publicity that brought him face to face with some of the most dangerous young men of the city, he largely flew under the radar of the media, using the Word of God and a bit of tough love to help men and women of the street escape the destructive spiral of drugs and violence. Wilkerson was always the real deal, full of passion and conviction, not interested in what others said was the "right" or political thing to do. Wilkerson later founded the Times Square Church, now a non-denominational mega-church of 8,000 members, to this day a crossroads for those battling sin, drugs, and pornography, and a place where the message of Christ is discussed. He created the faith-based program Teen Challenge to wean addicts off drugs, and then World Challenge, dedicated since its beginning to promoting and spreading the Gospel throughout the world. Both now have branches worldwide, continuing the work that God began in the life of one man who believed David Wilkerson was a man of faith who trusted God would give him what he needed to enter a world of crime and killing. He was a man of conviction who took the dream God gave him and marched forward without ever looking back. And he was a man of vision who could not be shaken from his beliefs-sometimes even when counseled otherwise. David Wilkerson was the preacher of New York City.

Chris Hutchins - Putin Matador

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Putin is the highly personal biography of Russia's leader - a man many regard as the world's most interesting politician - and is the result of six years of research by the authors. Chris Hutchins is a highly successful investigative journalist and much-published author of biographies. Alexander Korobko is a London-based Russian journalist and television producer with the kind of journalistic connections in his homeland that helped to make this book epic. Hutchins travelled throughout Russia to meet and gain the confidence of the people who know Vladimir Putin best, including those who knew him as a child, a teenager and a young intelligence officer, long before he first entered the world's stage as Russia's leader. The sources proved to be so good that Hutchins was told in 2005 that Putin would step down as President in 2008 to become Prime Minister, and then return to the Kremlin in 2012 - a move which now seems certain to prove the accuracy of all three predictions. Putin's stunning ability as a politician - he had never even stood for office until President Yeltsin made him head of the government in 1999 - took many totally by surprise. A British diplomat who travelled to St Petersburg with Tony Blair to meet the then-President elect describes in detail how Putin completely outwitted the British Prime Minister who was, until that moment, regarded as the elder statesman. In just eight years he rescued his country from financial ruin (a feat the experts had predicted could not be done in less than forty) and in doing so saved the nation's pride. But this book is about the man, not just the politician. Who are his friends? What makes him laugh? What has made him cry? How rich is he? What has his wife got to say about him? What are his real views on the oligarchs? Who does he turn to in times of trouble? Putin leaves no stone unturned. Intelligent books about him have been few and far between because, of all the world leaders, the man his friends call Vlad has managed to remain a mystery. This book goes some way to revealing the man behind the enigma.

Excerpt from Rube The life of Filippo Rubč, up to his thirtieth year, had not apparently been different from that of any number of provincial youths who descend upon Rome with a lawyer's degree, a wooden trunk and several letters of introduction to deputies and business men. As a matter of fact, however, he had brought with him something else of his own, to wit, a logical mind capable of splitting a hair into four, an oratorical fire that burned his opponent's argument to the bone, and a certain faith that he had great things in him. This had been implanted in his heart by his father, who was the communal secretary at Calinni, and who, well acquainted with his Ćneid, in Latin and the life of Napoleon in French, considered everybody in the world - beginning with himself - an intruder with the exception of geniuses and heroes. But Filippo's entrance into the office of the honourable Taramanna had done him more harm than good, so great was the oppression of that swarthy, powerfully-built man, who stood head and shoulders above him and took away his sunlight. Although his own eloquence was keener and his preparation more exact, he felt crushed by this grammarless, unlearned fellow who crashed through obstacles without even noticing them, with the stride of an elephant in the jungle, and who, when his pupil was perorating before the Tribunal like a Mirabeau, fashioned paper boats with a spontaneous indifference not born of envy. At times, in the evening, Filippo would grow excited expounding to him his plan for winning a suit or deciding a political struggle; but Taramanna, who was getting impatient for his game of poker, would listen, standing, and after letting him reach his climax, would place his hand upon the young man's shoulder and, bursting into a most unamiable Negro guffaw, transfix him by concluding: "Magnificent! But that isn't the way life goes." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
