There were dozens of books about Watergate, but only <b>All the President's Men</b> gave readers the full story, with all the drama and nuance and exclusive reporting. And thirty years later, if you're going to read only one book on Watergate, that's still the one. Today, Enron is the biggest business story of our time, and <b>Fortune</b> senior writers Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind are the new Woodward and Bernstein.<p>Remarkably, it was just two years ago that Enron was thought to epitomize a great New Economy company, with its skyrocketing profits and share price. But that was before <b>Fortune</b> published an article by McLean that asked a seemingly innocent question: How exactly does Enron make money? From that point on, Enron's house of cards began to crumble. Now, McLean and Elkind have investigated much deeper, to offer the definitive book about the Enron scandal and the fascinating people behind it.</p><p>Meticulously researched and character driven, <b>Smartest Guys in the Room</b> takes the reader deep into Enron's past—and behind the closed doors of private meetings. Drawing on a wide range of unique sources, the book follows Enron's rise from obscurity to the top of the business world to its disastrous demise. It reveals as never before major characters such as Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling, and Andy Fastow, as well as lesser known players like Cliff Baxter and Rebecca Mark. <b>Smartest Guys in the Room</b> is a story of greed, arrogance, and deceit—a microcosm of all that is wrong with American business today. Above all, it's a fascinating human drama that will prove to be the authoritative account of the Enron scandal.</p>

<p> <br />Now ratified by 73 countries from every geographical region, representing every stage of economic development and every major legal and economic system, the United Nations Convention on Contracts of the International Sales of Goods (CISG) has changed the way international sales contracts are drafted and resulting disputes settled. In the decade since the Third Edition of Professor John Honnold’s classic commentary, there has been vast growth in the number of decisions from tribunals around the world which have applied the CISG, an explosion of new scholarly analyses of the Convention, and remarkable developments in the research infrastructure that permits access to those materials. These developments have raised many new issues, and have deepened our understanding of (or, in some instances, effectively resolved) old ones. The remarkable progress of this epoch-making uniform international law calls for an updated edition of Professor Honnold’s treatise. </p> <p> <i>This Fourth Edition</i> retains the original’s incisive article-by-article commentary, as well as its insistence on how the parties’ duties and the corresponding remedies need to work together (‘like scissor-blades,’ to quote Professor Honnold’s vivid simile) and the many concrete examples that illustrate and test the Convention’s response to problems that arise in international trade. It deals definitively with the crucial aspects of sales contracts, including the following, taking fully into account the myriad variations among distinct legal systems: </p> <ul> <li> delivery of the goods and handing over of documents; </li> <li> conformity of the goods and third party claims; </li> <li> remedies for breach of contract by the seller; </li> <li> payment of the price; </li> <li> taking delivery; </li> <li> remedies for breach of contract by the buyer; </li> <li> anticipatory breach and instalment contracts; </li> <li> damages; </li> <li> interest; </li> <li> exemptions; </li> <li> effects of avoidance; and </li> <li> preservation of the goods </li> <li> conclusion ( formation) of contracts. </li> </ul> <p> </p> <p> In explicit recognition of Professor Honnold’s unique understanding of the Convention’s development and the issues that occupied those who drafted and finalized the text, the substantial new textual material incorporated into this new edition is set in bold italics, allowing the reader to distinguish the work of the editor from text preserved from earlier editions, and thus identifying the material that carries Professor Honnold’s special authority. </p> <p> Over three decades Professor Honnold’s almost intuitive grasp of the instrument has guided governments, tribunals, scholars and practitioners towards an enlightened international understanding of the treaty. This new edition provides tribunals, practitioners, and scholars with even more invaluable insights into the meaning of each article of the Convention. The hundreds of decisions cited, many of them dating from the last few years, will continue to influence the promotion of international sales contract uniformity, encourage the settlement of disputes, and help to reinforce consensus in the application of the Convention. </p> <p> </p>

<p>The year 2015 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Berkshire Hathaway under Warren Buffett’s leadership, a milestone worth commemorating. The tenure sets a record for chief executive not only in duration but in value creation and philosophizing. The fourth edition of <em>The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America</em> celebrates its twentieth anniversary. As the book Buffett autographs most, its popularity and longevity attest to the widespread appetite for this unique compilation of Buffett’s thoughts that is at once comprehensive, non-repetitive, and digestible. New and experienced readers alike will gain an invaluable informal education by perusing this classic arrangement of Warren’s best writings. </p><br /><p>The fourth edition’s new material includes: </p><br /><ul><br /> <li>Warren’s 50th anniversary retrospective, in what Bill Gates called Warren’s best letter ever, on conglomerates and Berkshire’s future without Buffett;</li><br /> <li>Charlie Munger’s 50th anniversary essay on “The Berkshire System”;</li><br /> <li>Warren’s definitive defense of Berkshire’s no-dividend practice; and</li><br /> <li>Warren’s best advice on investing, whether in apartments, farms, or businesses.</li><br /></ul><br /><br /><p>“Larry Cunningham has done a great job at collating our philosophy.” — Warren Buffett</p><br /><p>"Larry Cunningham takes Buffett's brilliant letters to a still-higher level by organizing them into single-subject chapters. The book begins, moreover, with an excellent introduction by Larry.” — Carol Loomis</p><br /><p>“This is a very important book. I recommend it to everyone who is interested in learning about investing, corporate governance, and business judgement.” — <em>Bill Ackman</em></p><br /><p>“The book on Buffett—a superb job.” — <em>Forbes</em></p><br /><p>“Extraordinary—full of wisdom, humor, and common sense.” — <em>Money</em></p><br /><p>“A classic on value investing and the definitive source on Buffett.” — <em>Financial Times</em></p><br /><p>“Cunningham has done a truly commendable job distilling and organizing the essence of Buffett's letter to Berkshire shareholders...While the essays reviewed in the latest edition of this volume range across a broad assortment of topics, for most readers the most valuable part of this book will be Buffett's lessons and insights on investing. It is extraordinarily rewarding to be able to survey the accumulated wisdom of one of the world's most successful investors.” — <em>Kevin M. LaCroix, The D&O Diary</em></p>

<h2>A TOY TO KILL FOR</h2>Celebrated criminal lawyer Marc Kadella takes on the fall-out of a class action suit against a beloved corporate toy company gone wrong—and ends up falling down a rabbit hole of <b>insider trading, sex scandal, political corruption, and murder, in the eighth page-turner of the Marc Kadella legal mystery series. </b><br /><br />Like most investors, venture capitalist Cal Simpson has his fingers in many a financial pie. There’s cutting edge war plane procurement, state-of-the-art toy manufacturing, and the occasional affair with the right politician (to name a few). <b>Some call him a shady Wall Street kinda guy. Others know him to be a tyrant—a mastermind with puppets intricately connected by a billion dollar string.</b> <br /><br />One of his pet projects is the newest Cannon Brothers toy—<b>a motorized skateboard for kids as young as 10 that takes the marketplace by storm, until it blows up—literally.</b> Seems its Chinese manufacturer has installed lithium batteries that overheat the braking system, sometimes causing it to explode—leaving 24 kids dead and 500 injured. <b>But the bigger problem is just as sinister: the small pool of people with insider knowledge of the defect are beginning to disappear…</b><br /><br />First there’s Irving Haraldson, a company engineer who discovered the defect before release and brought it to management with a furrowed brow. <b>He was told every single battery would be replaced, release date be damned. And then he was discovered behind a Minneapolis pick-up bar with 3 bullets in his head.</b> <br /><br />Then there’s the capable albeit young corporate lawyer Lynn McDaniel, who was assigned to defend Cannon Brothers in litigation. After discovering the engineer’s memo and distributing it to her boss, Zach Evans, <b>she turns up dead in the woods en route to a 4th of July party</b> being thrown by Zach’s father-in-law: Cal Simpson. <br /><br />Zach finds himself on trial for murder, with inimitable criminal lawyer Marc Kadella in his corner—and a nagging suspicion Cal knows more than he’s let on. <br /><br />A bleak and accurate portrayal of the lewd world of financial crime, where not even children are protected from the greedy and power-hungry, <b>Insider Justice is Dennis Carstens’s most intricate murder mystery yet—a heart-racing financial thriller that reads like a delicate puzzle, and a plot that twists and turns with meticulous precision—right up to its astounding conclusion.</b><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> <br />
