    The beginner’s guide to debt elimination and wealth creation. 
    Welcome newbie — who wants to get out of debt and build wealth from nothing... 
    Imagine receiving your bill and being afraid to open it due to your recent abusive and impulsive spending habit, poor money management, and missed payments, thus increasing the damage from incurred interest rate — welcome to debt! The word itself strikes more fear in the heart of many than death and taxes; as a matter of fact, nothing is certain, except for debt and taxes in our modern consumer-driven world. Nobody truly prepares for debt, but it could happen to you — like if it hasn’t already — and even to the most responsible individuals; these are the “accidental debtors” who fall into debt unexpectedly when life throws a curveball — like job layoffs, failed businesses, personal accidents, and other unforeseen circumstances. 
    Rather than debt, how about opting for wealth instead? If debt doesn’t apply to you and you’re pretty financially stable, would you like to create more wealth? First, consider yourself fortunate that you have money that would have gone to paying off debt to now being used to amass wealth. 
    Let’s put it this way, accumulating debt is no fun, but accumulating wealth is. How about turning debt around into wealth? 
    Debt Elimination and Wealth Creation for Beginners will guide you through:Different ways to increase your financial streams to generate wealth passively
    Common mistakes to avoid in order to not sink into debt but secure your finance
    A five-step process that paid professional financial advisor gives to eliminate debt 
    ...on top everything else that beginners need to know. 
    Essentially, this is two-guides-in-one covering both sides of the spectrum - whether you’re in debt and want to get out of it or you’re already living the good life without debt and want to obtain wealth. The knowledge contained is applicable to every person. Be debt free and reclaim your finance and life now!

    Red Team - How to Succeed By...

    Red teaming. It is a practice as old as the Devil's Advocate, the eleventh-century Vatican official charged with discrediting candidates for sainthood. Today, red teams-comprised primarily of fearless skeptics and those assuming the role of saboteurs who seek to better understand the interests, intentions, and capabilities of institutions or potential competitors-are used widely in both the public and private sector. Red teaming, including simulations, vulnerability probes, and alternative analyses, helps institutions in competitive environments to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses, challenge assumptions, and anticipate potential threats ahead of the next special operations raid, malicious cyberattack, or corporate merger. But not all red teams are created equal; indeed, some cause more damage than they prevent. 
     
    In Red Team, national security expert Micah Zenko provides an in-depth investigation into the work of red teams, revealing the best practices, most common pitfalls, and most effective applications of these modern-day Devil's Advocates. The best practices of red teaming can be applied to the CIA, NYPD, or a pharmaceutical company, and executed correctly they can yield impressive results: red teams give businesses an edge over their competition, poke holes in vital intelligence estimates, and troubleshoot dangerous military missions long before boots are on the ground. But red teams are only as good as leaders allow them to be, and Zenko shows not only how to create and empower red teams, but also what to do with the information they produce. 
     
    Essential reading for business leaders and policymakers alike, Red Team will revolutionize the way organizations think about, exploit, compensate for, and correct their institutional strengths and weaknesses. Drawing on little-known case studies and unprecedented access to elite red teamers in the United States and abroad, Zenko shows how any group-from military units to friendly hackers-can win by thinking like the enemy.

    Essays on the history of HBO, a company designed to please audiences instead of advertisers, and the impact of its distinctive programming: “Recommended.” —Choice 
     
    The founding of Home Box Office in the early 1970s—when it debuted by telecasting a Paul Newman movie and an NHL game to 365 households in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania—was a harbinger of the innovations that would transform television as an industry and a technology in the decades that followed. HBO quickly became synonymous with subscription television—and the leading force in cable programming. 
     
    Over decades, it’s grown from a domestic movie channel to an international powerhouse with a presence in over seventy countries. It is now a full-service content provider with a distinctive brand of original programming, famed for such landmark shows as The Sopranos and Sex and the City. It’s brought us Six Feet Under and The Wire, Band of Brothers and Angels in America, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Def Comedy Jam, Inside the NFL and Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Taxicab Confessions and Autopsy, and multiple Oscar-winning documentaries. 
     
    The Essential HBO Reader brings together an accomplished group of scholars to explain how HBO’s programming transformed the world of television and popular culture, and provides a comprehensive and compelling examination of HBO’s development into the prototypical entertainment corporation of the twenty-first century. 
     
    “An important assessment of the original programming HBO has created in the past few decades?how these programs are derived and what impact they have had.” —Choice 
     
    “A thorough treatment of HBO’s programming . . . a useful addition to a growing number of books about American television in the ‘post-network’ era.” —American Studies

    Book Summary of The Tipping Point by Malcolm GladwellAbout | The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm GladwellHave you ever wondered how something can become an overnight sensation? Or how an idea or product becomes extremely popular in a short amount of time? In Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point, he talks about how these epidemics of change start, spread, and hold their momentum. The word ‘epidemic’ is part of the way he shows how quickly something can take hold and become a massive success. He also shows how the same principles are used to spread negative behaviors and ideas. In all of his examples, something seemingly small becomes the Tipping Point. This Tipping Point is the point where it all suddenly goes very well, or very badly.Gladwell uses research about epidemics and success stories to show how The Three Rules of Tipping Points have created such astounding events. The Law of the Few, the Stickiness Factor, and the Power of Context are all places where having the right component at the right time can lead to a Tipping Point. He shows how everything from a syphilis epidemic to the success of Sesame Street to the ride of Paul Revere were examples of using one or more of these rules to create powerful, and almost-immediate results.Here’s what you’ll learn about in this summary:* The Law of the Few – how a few key people known as Connectors, Mavens, and Salesmen can compel people to engage in something new* The Stickiness Factor – ways of giving a message that ensure that it stays with the recipient and makes the desired impact* The Power of Context – understanding how powerful of an impact our environment has on us, and those around us, and how to use this to create a Tipping Point

    The author of How Asia Works follows the money. “Alarming . . . enlightening . . . Joe Studwell should be named chief myth buster for Asian business” (Financial Times).   Hong Kong and Southeast Asia are home to five hundred million people, yet their economies are dominated by only fifty families whose interests range from banking to real estate, shipping to sugar, gambling to lumber. At their peak, eight of the world’s two dozen richest men were Southeast Asian, but their names would not be familiar to most regular readers of The Wall Street Journal.   A complex mythology surrounds these billionaires, but in Asian Godfathers, Joe Studwell finds that the facts are even more remarkable than the myths. Studwell has spent fifteen years as a reporter in the region, and he marshals his unprecedented sources to paint intimate and revealing portraits of the men who control Southeast Asia. Studwell also provides us with a rich and deep understanding of the broader historic, economic, and political influences that have shaped Southeast Asia over the past 150 years.  Asian Godfathers is a riveting and illuminating book that lifts the curtain on a world of staggering secrecy and hypocrisy, and reveals—for the first time—who the leaders of one of the planet’s most important and tumultuous markets really are, why they got to the top, and how they keep themselves there.   “The romp around the region’s pleasure domes is a blast.” —The Wall Street Journal (Asia)
