Book Excerpt :

In recent years, record-breaking stock volume plus major new trading vehicles such as stock index futures contracts and options on futures have made Wall Street history. In ten year’ time, the new options market has grown from an idea to a major marketplace. Thos who understand how to use these new markets either for speculative gain or conservative income strategies are already reaping the financial rewards. This book, by a Chicago floor trader, tells how you too can join the boom in options trading and play the market to your advantage. “The notion that you can buy stock and hold it indefinitely is one that simply doesn’t work anymore. Today’s investor wants and needs an investment tool that will enable him to change with changing economic times. Options are flexible. They provide a suitable challenge for those who want to be master of their own destiny.”

Book Short Summary:

David Leavitt's deliciously sharp new novel is a multilayered dissection of literary and sexual mores in the get-ahead eighties, when outrageous success lay seductively within reach of any young writer ambitious enough to grab it. At the dawn of the Reagan era, Martin Bauman—nineteen, clever, talented, and insecure—is enrolled at a prestigious college with a hard-won place under the tutelage of the legendary and enigmatic Stanley Flint, a man who can make or break careers with the flick of a weary hand. Martin is poised on the brink of the writing life, and his twin desires, equally urgent, are to get into print and find his way out of the closet. As he makes his way through the wilderness of New York—falling in love, going to parties, and coming to terms with the emerging chaos of AIDS—Martin matures from brilliant student, to apprentice in a Manhattan publishing house, to one of the golden few to be anointed by the highly regarded magazine in which it is every young writer's dream to be published. Yet despite his apparent success, his emotional and creative desires stubbornly refuse to be satisfied, and his every achievement is haunted by that austere and troubling image of literary perfection, his elusive mentor, Stanley Flint. An irresistibly entertaining epic, erotic, honest, and funny, MARTIN BAUMAN lays bare the life of the artist, in all his venal, envious, poignant glory.

Book Short Summary:

The world according to David Ives is a very add place, and his plays constitute a virtual stress test of the English language -- and of the audience's capacity for disorientation and delight. Ives's characters plunge into black holes called "Philadelphias," where the simplest desires are hilariously thwarted. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to re-create Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in a dubious language in which "hello" translates as "velcro" and "fraud" comes out as "freud." At once enchanting and perplexing, incisively intelligent and side-splittingly funny, this original paperback edition of Ives's plays includes "Sure Thing," "Words, Words, Words," "The Universal Language," "Variations on the Death of Trotsky," "The Philadelphia," "Long Ago and Far Away," "Foreplay, or The Art of the Fugue," "Seven Menus," "Mere Mortals," "English Made Simple," "A Singular Kinda Guy," "Speed-the-Play," "Ancient History," and "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread."

  • Pdf File: a-brain-focused-foundation-for-economic-science.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book argues that Lionel Robbins’s construction of the economics field’s organizing cornerstone, scarcity—and all that has been derived from it from economists in Robbins’s time to today—no longer can generate general consent among economists. Since Robbins’ Essay, economists have learned more than Robbins and his cohorts could have imagined about human decision making and about the human brain that is the lynchpin of human decision making. This book argues however that behavioral economists and neuroeconomists, in pointing to numerous ways people fall short of perfectly rational decisions (anomalies, biases, and downright errors), have saved conventional economics from such self-contradictions in what could be viewed as a wayward approach. This book posits that the human brain is the ultimate scarce resource, and that a focus on the brain can bring a new foundation for economics and can save the discipline from hostile criticisms from a variety of non-economists (many psychologists).

Book Short Summary:

Organizational science profits from taking new perspectives using a simple model to understand why behaviors of particular types occur within them. This volume provides readers with a rich source of casestudies and empirical studies of the role played by the interaction between individual actors, organizational contexts, and the actual behaviors being performed the actors. These chapters each seek to describe how these three interact in to create organizational practices with negative effects on either internal members of the organization or external stakeholders (e.g,. clients). The chapters provide insight into how organizations may control these negative behaviors with basic Human Resource Management practices. It is this volume’s hope that these chapters may provide insight into the important role these three factors plays in understanding negative organizational behavior within organizations across the world.

Book Short Summary:

In Craig Stewart’s, One Thing for Certain, Two Things for Sure he reminds us that there are no mistakes or accidents in life—that everything happens as it should. Through the dissolution of a sordid affair with a married man, friendships, and personal setbacks he teaches us the art of letting go, and adapting to whatever comes our way. Stewart allows us, the reader, an intimate look into his personal life through stories that center on dating, love, fear, fate and destiny. “I hope my story, these words, will help navigate the lives of men and women everywhere.” Craig Stewart’s groundbreaking debut memoir, Words Never Spoken transcended race, gender and sexuality. Dubbed a literary piece of artwork, Words Never Spoken gave voice to men and women who are conflicted sexually, and frustrated by the complexities of being gay, bisexual or trans. Stewart returns with the long awaited sequel, One Thing for Certain, Two Things for Sure, A Memoir continued. “I promised myself years ago that I wouldn’t be the kind of writer, artist, who puts out a project because people want to hear more from me. Rather, I’d be the kind of artist that only puts out a work because I have something to say, and I’ve kept that promise.” www.CraigTheWriterStewart.com

It also develops new probability theories with rigorous foundations for decision theory and applies them to specific well-known problematic examples. There is only one other book that attempts this. It uses quantum probability theory from physics. The new probability theories developed in this book are different; they are not borrowed from physics but are explicitly designed for decision theory.

Book Short Summary:

Evangelism is a word that strikes fear in the hearts of even the most faithful Christians. Though believers realize their responsibility to connect others to Christ, many feel intimidated by the task. A plethora of programs and processes have been developed to aid believers in evangelism; however, these can often feel impersonal, inauthentic, or awkward. In frustration, many believers have given up hope of ever feeling adequate to share their faith with others. What if evangelism was not meant to be a process? What if it was never intended to be boiled down to step-by-step programs or processes? What if introducing others to Jesus is actually as easy as sharing life with others and having a few intentional conversations? Through this book, readers will learn an approach to evangelism that leverages relationality while minimizing much of the anxiety that accompanies sharing ones faith. Rather than a new approach, this simple, straight-forward perspective is a return to the evangelism modeled by the first believers. There are no flowcharts, presentations, or acronyms. All that is required is a reliance on the Holy Spirit, Gods Word, and a desire to cultivate and build intentional relationships for the sake of the gospel. The ultimate goal is to see every believer equipped, encouraged, and empowered to do his part to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ.

Book Short Summary:

At the age of eighty, Don Gillmor's grandmother let slip the defining secret of her life: her twin sister Jean was not her twin, but her aunt, and her family had emigrated from Scotland to Winnipeg to escape the stigma of her illegitimacy. That revelation set Gillmor off on what seemed at first like the most personal of quests: to track down his ancestors. The Desire of Every Living Thing is also the story of the New World, the story of Winnipeg, the story of this country. Both an evocative family memoir and a brilliant feat of historical imagination, the book's most moving theme is how the discarded past haunts and shapes our lives without us even noticing.

  • Pdf File: maximum-entropy-and-bayesian-methods.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Bayesian probability theory and maximum entropy methods are at the core of a new view of scientific inference. These `new' ideas, along with the revolution in computational methods afforded by modern computers, allow astronomers, electrical engineers, image processors of any type, NMR chemists and physicists, and anyone at all who has to deal with incomplete and noisy data, to take advantage of methods that, in the past, have been applied only in some areas of theoretical physics. This volume records the Proceedings of Eleventh Annual `Maximum Entropy' Workshop, held at Seattle University in June, 1991. These workshops have been the focus of a group of researchers from many different fields, and this diversity is evident in this volume. There are tutorial papers, theoretical papers, and applications in a very wide variety of fields. Almost any instance of dealing with incomplete and noisy data can be usefully treated by these methods, and many areas of theoretical research are being enhanced by the thoughtful application of Bayes' theorem. The contributions contained in this volume present a state-of-the-art review that will be influential and useful for many years to come.

After graduation, he takes a job at a country club’s pro shop, to rake in easy money while he considers joining the professional tour. It’s here that he falls in love with Judy Faulkner, and his ability to ignore the outside world disappears. Burke is hunting for a ball in the rough when he finds Bud Venier, priggish scion of one of the town’s wealthiest families, lying dead in the chaparral. As the murder investigation turns the club upside down, Burke doesn’t know if his next stop will be on the pro tour, or in the electric chair.

A man is endangered by his family’s long-ago Nazi ties in this “riveting” thriller by a New York Times–bestselling author (Rolling Stone). His marriage destroyed by drinking, John Cooper returns to Cambridge, Massachusetts, trying to recapture the joy he felt as an undergraduate in Harvard University’s sacred halls. He is just beginning to piece his life together when he gets a telegram calling him home to Minnesota. The message comes from Buenos Aires, and with Cooper’s family history, that can mean only one thing: The Nazis are staging a comeback. To John and his brother, their grandfather was a kind, distinguished old man. But to the American people, he was the worst kind of traitor. An industrialist who spent the 1930s in business with Fascists, he became infamous as “America’s Number One Nazi.” When Hitler’s old lieutenants decide to get together a Fourth Reich, the Coopers are the first family they call. John hasn’t even made it to Minnesota when the first attempt on his life comes—a message that if he isn’t ready to honor his family legacy, he will die for it.

Book Short Summary:

To save a friend’s daughter from a bad marriage, Joe Crow confronts cultists, carnies, and cocaine wackos Poker-playing ex-cop Joe Crow has been dealt some rotten hands in his life, but he’s survived them all. When Axel Speeter starts begging for help, Crow suspects his luck is about to run out. A taco-dealing former poker pro, Speeter’s worried about his girlfriend’s daughter Carmen. She’s the sexiest trouble magnet the state of Omaha has ever seen, and she’s about to drag Crow down with her. Carmen has just gotten engaged to Hyatt Hilton, a onetime drug pusher who’s currently scratching out a living selling bootlegged Evian. Speeter wants Crow to make sure he’s staying on the straight-and-narrow. And it looks like Hilton’s involved in something much more dangerous than designer water. He’s about to cross the Amaranthine Church of the One—a New Age cult convinced that it’s found the secret to immortality, and doesn’t mind killing to prove it.

Book Short Summary:

We forget our passwords. We pay too much to go to the gym. We think we’d be happier if we lived in California (we wouldn’t), and we think we should stick with our first answer on tests (we shouldn’t). Why do we make mistakes? And could we do a little better? We human beings have design flaws. Our eyes play tricks on us, our stories change in the retelling, and most of us are fairly sure we’re way above average. In Why We Make Mistakes, journalist Joseph T. Hallinan sets out to explore the captivating science of human error—how we think, see, remember, and forget, and how this sets us up for wholly irresistible mistakes. In his quest to understand our imperfections, Hallinan delves into psychology, neuroscience, and economics, with forays into aviation, consumer behavior, geography, football, stock picking, and more. He discovers that some of the same qualities that make us efficient also make us error prone. We learn to move rapidly through the world, quickly recognizing patterns—but overlooking details. Which is why thirteen-year-old boys discover errors that NASA scientists miss—and why you can’t find the beer in your refrigerator. Why We Make Mistakes is enlivened by real-life stories—of weathermen whose predictions are uncannily accurate and a witness who sent an innocent man to jail—and offers valuable advice, such as how to remember where you’ve hidden something important. You’ll learn why multitasking is a bad idea, why men make errors women don’t, and why most people think San Diego is west of Reno (it’s not). Why We Make Mistakes will open your eyes to the reasons behind your mistakes—and have you vowing to do better the next time.

Book Short Summary:

William Dean Howells (1837-1920) was an American realist author and literary critic. He wrote his first novel, Their Wedding Journey, in 1871, but his literary reputation really took off with the realist novel A Modern Instance, published in 1882, which describes the decay of a marriage. His 1885 novel The Rise of Silas Lapham is perhaps his best known, describing the rise and fall of an American entrepreneur in the paint business. His social views were also strongly reflected in the novels Annie Kilburn (1888) and A Hazard of New Fortunes (1890). While known primarily as a novelist, his short story "Editha" (1905) - included in the collection Between the Dark and the Daylight (1907) - appears in many anthologies of American literature. Howells also wrote plays, criticism, and essays about contemporary literary figures such as Ibsen, Zola, Verga, and, especially, Tolstoy, which helped establish their reputations in the United States. He also wrote critically in support of many American writers. It is perhaps in this role that he had his greatest influence.
