Summary

Commercial air travel began just over a century ago. In that time there have been groundbreaking civilian aircraft, such as flying boats, the first pressurized cabin aircraft, jet and supersonic aircraft, as well as immense changes in the capacity of a typical airliner: in the 1920s aircraft struggled to carry 20 passengers, today some models can carry up to 800 people.
The book includes many types, from cargo transports and freighters, through flying boats, passenger airliners, business jets and supersonic carriers. Featured aircraft include: the Ford Trimotor ‘Tin Goose’, one of the great workhorses of early aviation history; the first post-war intercontinental airliners, such as the Douglas DC-4 Skymaster, De Havilland Comet and Boeing 377 Stratocruiser; the Vickers VC10, one of the greats of the 1960s golden age of commercial airliners, when jet-powered air commerce was new and airliners pampered passengers; the massive Super Guppy heavy transport, one of the widest aircraft in aviation history; the supersonic Tupolev Tu-144 ‘Charger’ and Concorde, Cold War competitors in aviation excellence; the Embraer ERJ, part of a new range of narrow-bodied airliners; and the most popular passenger aircraft of the present, including the Boeing 747 and Airbus A320.
Each entry includes a brief description of the model’s development and history, a profile view, key features and specifications. Packed with more than 200 artworks and photographs, The World’s Greatest Civil Aircraft is a colourful guide for the aviation enthusiast.

    This 3300-word article on Debtors Anonymous originally appeared in The New York Times Magazine.  
    Debtors Anonymous is a 12-Step self-help program modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous that helps its members recover from past debts, negotiate with and pay off all their creditors on a humane and manageable schedule, increase income, and avoid incurring any new unsecured debt going forward.  
    It enables its members to get free of debt and the act of debting and stay free forever, one day at a time.  
    While the subject is debt, the deeper issue at Debtors Anonymous is the quality of life. Becoming free of debt and trouble with money leads to profound changes. Members regain control of their own lives, get back self-esteem, and liberate themselves from fear. Prosperity enters their lives, not just financially, but, for many, in everything from their response to a sunny day to the quality of their relationships.  
    This article explains with examples and quotes from members what Debtors Anonymous is, how it works, what it can do for its members, and how you can participate in it.

    In Rich Dad's Conspiracy of the Rich, Robert Kiyosaki explores why many people are waiting for the political and financial systems of the world to change. He shares his opinion that it’s easier to change yourself than to wait for our leaders and systems to change.Is it time for you to take control of your money and your financial future? Is it time to find out what those who control the financial world don't want you to know? Do you want complex and confusing financial concepts to be made simple? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then this book is for you.In 1971, after President Nixon took the U.S. dollar off the gold standard, the rules of money changed. And today, money is no longer money. That is why the first new rule of money is Money is knowledge.Robert Kiyosaki wrote this book for those who want to increase their financial knowledge and take control of their lives.According to Kiyosaki: We cannot see the world of the future with our eyes. “The world of the future is invisible, and we have to see it with our minds.”Kiyosaki sees a new economy and new definitions of wealth. He believes that there will be new millionaires and billionaires. Money will be made at ultrahigh speed. The question is: Will you be among the new rich, or the new poor?The old economy, the economy as we knew it, is not coming back. A new economy is being born, an economy that will be led by kids born after 1990, young people who only know the invisible, high-speed world of the future.
