The surprising rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches story of how Michael Jackson grew a billion-dollar business. Michael Jackson is known by many as the greatest entertainer of all time, but he was also a revolutionary when it came to business. In addition to famously buying the Beatles´ publishing catalogue, Jackson was one of the first pop stars to launch his own clothing line, record label, sneakers, and video games - creating a fundamental shift in the monetization of fame and paving the way for entertainer-entrepreneurs like Jay Z and Diddy. All told, Jackson earned more than $1.1 billion in his solo career, and the assets he built in life have earned more than $700 million in the five years since his death - more than any other solo music act over that time. Michael Jackson, Inc. reveals the incredible rise, fall, and rise again of Michael Jackson´s fortune - driven by the unmatched perfectionism of the King of Pop. Forbes senior editor Zack O´Malley Greenburg uncovers never-before-told stories from interviews with more than 100 people, including music industry veterans Berry Gordy, John Branca, and Walter Yetnikoff; artists 50 Cent, Sheryl Crow, and Jon Bon Jovi; and members of the Jackson family. Other insights come from court documents and Jackson´s private notes, some of them previously unpublished. Through Greenburg´s novelistic telling, a clear picture emerges of Jackson´s early years, his rise to international superstardom, his decline - fueled by demons internal and external, as well as the dissolution of the team that helped him execute his best business moves - and, finally, his financial life after death. Underlying Jackson´s unique history is the complex but universal tale of the effects of wealth and fame on the human psyche. A valuable case study for generations of entertainers to come and for anyone interested in show business, Michael Jackson, Inc. tells the story of a man whose financial feats, on... 1.

In Vancouver werden mehrere Frauen brutal ermordet. Die Opfer waren offenbar sehr schön, aber ganz sicher ist das nicht ihnen fehlen nämlich die Köpfe. Superintendent Robert DeClercq und seine Kollegen kommen mit ihren Ermittlungen nicht weit. Verfolgt der Mörder einen Plan? Oder treibt ihn unkontrollierte sexuelle Perversion an? Spielt Kannibalismus eine Rolle? Erst als DeClercq auf einen alten Fluch der kanadischen Indianer stößt und herausfindet, dass Verbindungen zum Voodoo-Kult in New Orleans bestehen, offenbart sich eine entsetzliche und irre Erklärung ... Diana Gabaldon: ´´Die Romane von Michael Slade lassen einem das Blut in den Adern gefrieren Sie sind wirklich spannend und führen den Leser tiefer in die Geisteswelt der Psychopathen als es ihnen lieb sein wird.´´ Michael Slade schreibt brutale, durchdachte Thriller. Er lässt den Leser bis zur letzten Seite fiebern, wer die grausamen Taten wirklich begangen hat ...

Unter dem Pseudonym Michael Slade arbeiten mehrere Autoren unter der Leitung von Jay Clarke. Clarke wurde 1947 in Alberta, Kanada geboren und ist Fachanwalt für geistesgestörte Kriminelle. Er hat schon über 100 solcher Fälle betreut.In der Reihe SPECIAL X erschienen bisher 17 Bände. Fans von Michael Slade werden ´´Sladisten´´ genannt (nach Sadist).
Whereas language is situated in the communicative zones between subjects, the imagination, according to a widespread prejudice concerning its freedom, is often treated as obscurely originating from the inner self. Instead of focusing on individual or ´´private´´ imaginations by means of introspection, the contributors to the volume inquire into the dialogical formations the imagination shares with language, and into social ways of world making. ´´Aisthesis´´ means perception, but, in this volume, as the cover illustration the artist Giulio Paolini made for us demonstrates, it is treated as inscribed into dialogue. Furthermore, the range of its meaning is extended to include societies´ capacities to perceive their own conditions and dispositions - those concerning their inner structures and their external, cultural, and natural contexts. The essays present a wide variety of cultural manifestations of social perception - from the documentary to the fictional. Philosophers and sociologists, literary and art historians, media and film analysts deal with figurations, topoi and stereotypes as created in various communal spheres and as resulting from media and epistemological practices. Many of the debates turn around dialogical humanism, but this is certainly not aimed at returning to normative models more regulating than describing the human. Our period has been marked by debates around the post-human, biopolitics, and an increasing awareness of crisis and of global interdependence. Previously, the concept of humanism had been criticized, for good reasons, by Foucault and by philosophers such as Judith Butler. If the editors propose to discuss humanism again, a reevaluation of the dialogical character of humanism - and a reconstruction of its history as marked by dialogical strategies - is the starting point. In dialogical humanism, man, instead of being defined by a system of norms, is and remains an argument - even if, in the final instance, inscrutable, inexhaustible.

The whole job of learning how to produce miracles for yourself is to convince yourself that you already have this power, says Wayne Dyer. He describes the ´´real magic´´ available in every life as the undeveloped powers existing within each of us. We limit our own potential by our belief that we are limited, when in fact we have tremendous capabilities for actualizing our dreams if we begin by ´´suspending our disbelief´´ and knowing that anything is possible. Dyer gives inspiring examples of the power of visions and thoughts to change the external realities in our lives. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Toms.

A blistering critique of the forces threatening the American intelligence community, beginning with the president of the United States himself, in a time when that community´s work has never been harder or more important In the face of a president who lobs accusations without facts, evidence, or logic, truth tellers are under attack. Meanwhile, the world order is teetering on the brink. North Korea is on the verge of having a nuclear weapon that could reach all of the United States, Russians have mastered a new form of information warfare that undercuts democracy, and the role of China in the global community remains unclear. There will always be value to experience and expertise, devotion to facts, humility in the face of complexity, and a respect for ideas, but in this moment they seem more important, and more endangered, than they´ve ever been. American intelligence - the ultimate truth teller - has a responsibility in a post-truth world beyond merely warning of external dangers, and in The Assault on Intelligence, General Michael Hayden takes up that urgent work with profound passion, insight, and authority. It is a sobering vision. The American intelligence community is more at risk than is commonly understood, for every good reason. Civil war or societal collapse is not necessarily imminent or inevitable, but our democracy´s core structures, processes, and attitudes are under great stress. Many of the premises on which we have based our understanding of governance are now challenged, eroded, or simply gone. And we have a president in office who responds to overwhelming evidence from the intelligence community that the Russians are, by all acceptable standards of cyber conflict, in a state of outright war against us, not by leading a strong response, but by shooting the messenger. There are fundamental changes afoot in the world and in this country. The Assault on Intelligence shows us what they are, reveals ho... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael V. Hayden.

The 11th book in Joe Nobody´s popular series, Holding Their Own: Hearts and Minds, takes the listener on a rampaging exploration of how critical the elements of trust, faith, and respect will become in the postapocalyptic world. Bold steps are required to ensure the recovery continues, placing enormous pressure on the republic´s leadership and creating opportunities for old enemies to seek revenge. The stakes are high, the weight of civilization´s future sending waves of discord rolling across the land and potentially fracturing the very foundation on which the alliance was built. Bishop and Terri find themselves embroiled in a fast-moving conspiracy that threatens not only all that has been accomplished but their future together.
