A billionaire stock investor with a dragon-sized ego finds himself in an outrageous pickle when an eccentric entrepreneur approaches him to invest in his company which makes a revolutionary new product–NOTHING. While the billionaire dismisses him with 1 lakh rupees to seek psychiatric help, the entrepreneur instead uses the money to start manufacturing NOTHING, assigning him a stake in the company as a sign of gratefulness. Caught in a precarious situation, the billionaire must now debate the validity of the stake he has unintentionally picked up in the company as it becomes more and more valuable each day with everyone from politicians to filmstars to aam aadmis parading the power of Nothing. Things escalate into a circus when another company sues for what they believe is a blatant patent plagiarism of their original idea. Rambunctious, packed with tons of sarcasm, spoofs, and sketches, How to Become a Billionaire by Selling Nothing looks at the inherent madness of human nature and the ridiculous lengths people go to while doing business.

"Ich habe dieses Buch, mein ultimatives Notizbuch voller nützlicher Werkzeuge, für mich selbst kreiert. Es hat mein Leben verändert und ich hoffe, dir wird es genauso helfen." TIM FERRISS "In den letzten zwei Jahren habe ich beinahe 200 Weltklasse-Performer interviewt. Die Bandbreite der Gäste reicht von Stars (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger) und Topathleten bis hin zu legendären Kommandanten von Spezialeinheiten und sogar Schwarzmarkt-Biochemikern. Viele meiner Gäste akzeptierten erstmals in ihrer Karriere ein Zwei-bis-drei-Stunden-Interview. Dieses Buch enthält unverzichtbare Tools, Taktiken und Insiderwissen, die anderswo nicht zu finden sind, außerdem neue Tipps von früheren Gästen und Lebensweisheiten neuer Gäste, die du noch nicht kennst." Was das Buch so außergewöhnlich macht, ist der unablässige Fokus auf leicht umsetzbare Details: - Was tun diese Titanen in den ersten 60 Minuten an jedem Morgen? - Wie sieht ihre Trainingsroutine aus und warum? - Welches Buch haben sie am häufigsten an andere Menschen verschenkt? - Was betrachten sie als die größten Zeitverschwender? - Welche Nahrungsergänzungsmittel nehmen sie täglich? "Alles, was du auf diesen Seiten liest, habe ich in meinem Leben bereits auf die eine oder andere Weise angewandt. Ich habe Dutzende der dargestellten Taktiken bei kritischen Verhandlungen, in riskanter Umgebung oder bei großen Deals eingesetzt. Die Lektionen haben mir zu Millionen von Dollar verholfen und mich vor Jahren verschwendeter Bemühungen und Frustration bewahrt." TIM FERRISS

Die weltweit bekannte Parabel über das Geheimnis des Glücks vom Bestseller-Autor Robin Sharma – über die berührende Geschichte des Mönchs, der seinen Ferrari verkaufte. Mitten in einem dicht besetzten Gerichtssaal brach er zusammen. Er war einer der hervorragendsten Anwälte des Landes. Für die sündhaft teuren italienischen Anzüge, die seinen massigen Körper zierten, war er genauso bekannt wie für seine bemerkenswerte Reihe von Siegen vor Gericht. Und jetzt dieser Zusammenbruch. Der große Julian Mantle war jäh zu einem hilflosen Wesen zusammengesackt, zitterte, bebte, wand sich wie ein kleines Kind am Boden. Nach der schweren Herz-Attacke trennt sich der Star-Anwalt Julian Mantle von seinem hart erarbeiteten Luxus-Leben. Statt nach einer Kur wieder in sein altes Leben zurückzukehren, macht er sich auf die Reise in den Himalaya, um sich in einem Kloster den Grundfragen des Lebens zu stellen. Eine Gruppe von Mönchen lehrt ihn dort das Geheimnis des Glücks: durch Selbstdisziplin den Geist zu kultivieren, seine Träume in die Tat umzusetzen und jeden Tag die Fülle des Lebens auszukosten. Auf so einfache Art und Weise macht Robin Sharma in seinem spirituellen Roman klar, was im Leben wirklich zählt.

Discover and cultivate the secret traits of self-made billionaires with THE SELF-MADE BILLIONAIRE EFFECT by John Sviokla and Mitch Cohen Imagine what Atari might have achieved if Steve Jobs had stayed there. Or what Steve Case could have done for Pepsi if he hadn't left for a start-up that eventually became AOL. Scores of billionaires worked for established corporations before they struck out on their own. People like Michael Bloomberg and Mark Cuban went on to build iconic household brands. Why didn't their former employers hang onto to these people? And why are most big companies unable to create as much value as the world's 800 self-made billionaires? Billionaires aren't necessarily luckier, smarter or harder working than the rest of us - and they rarely build something brand-new. The key difference is their mindset. They redefine what's possible - and they are critical to any company looking to create massive value. The Self-Made Billionaire Effect breaks down the five critical habits of massive value-creators, so you can learn how to identify, encourage, and retain them - and even become one yourself. It will forever change the way you think about talent and business value. John J. Sviokla is the head of Global Thought Leadership with PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is a frequent speaker on innovation, growth, and customer behavior. In addition to working with clients, John serves on PwC's Advisory Leadership Group and Global Thought Leadership Council. He was on the faculty of the Harvard Business School for ten years and has written for Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, and Sloan Management Review. Mitch Cohen is PwC's Vice Chairman. During his 33 years at the firm and 20 years as a partner, Cohen has held a variety of leadership roles and served numerous Fortune 500 clients.

The Deluxe Edition of The Self-made Billionaire Effect includes seven videos of authors John Sviokla and Mitch Cohen expanding on the book’s themes and their findings, along with behind-the-scenes insights into what makes self-made billionaires unique.A study of self-made billionaires reveals the key distinction between “producers” and “performers” There are about 800 self-made billionaires in the world today. What enables this elite group to create truly massive value, and what can the rest of us learn from them? John Sviokla and Mitch Cohen set out to answer this question with the first systematic study of 120 self-made billionaires, including extensive interviews with icons like Steve Case, Mark Cuban, and T. Boone Pickens, Jr. The authors conclude that self-made billionaires aren't necessarily smarter, harder working, or luckier than their peers. The key difference is what they call the “producer” mindset, in contrast to the far more common “performer” mindset. Performers strive to excel in well-defined areas, and they are essential to any company. But producers are even more valuable because they redefine what's possible, rather than simply meeting pre-existing goals and standards. Producers think up entirely new products, services, strategies, and business models, with dramatic results. This book offers fresh stories and insights into producers' habits of mind. It also provides corporate leaders with a new approach to selecting and managing breakthrough talent, and advice about innovation and value creation for aspiring leaders or entrepreneurs.

The rivetingly strange story of the world's most expensive bottle of wine, and the even stranger characters whose lives have intersected with it. The New York Times bestseller, updated with a new epilogue, that tells the true story of a 1787 Château Lafite Bordeaux—supposedly owned by Thomas Jefferson—that sold for $156,000 at auction and of the eccentrics whose lives intersected with it. Was it truly entombed in a Paris cellar for two hundred years? Or did it come from a secret Nazi bunker? Or from the moldy basement of a devilishly brilliant con artist? As Benjamin Wallace unravels the mystery, we meet a gallery of intriguing players—from the bicycle-riding British auctioneer who speaks of wines as if they are women to the obsessive wine collector who discovered the bottle. Suspenseful and thrillingly strange, this is the vintage tale of what could be the most elaborate con since the Hitler diaries. “Part detective story, part wine history, this is one juicy tale, even for those with no interest in the fruit of the vine. . . . As delicious as a true vintage Lafite.” —BusinessWeek

Filled with fascinating glimpses behind today's financial headlines, Underwriting the Internet is a fast-paced story of one of the most exciting developments that has ever occurred. This comprehensive treatment of the technical advances, financial engineering, and entrepreneurial genius behind the Internet revolution includes actual corporate case studies, stock market analyses, and synopses of regulatory investigations. While focusing on the Internet's commercial development, the author describes the little understood technical and financial areas of the Internet revolution. He shows how the industry set off an investment frenzy built on biased financial research, executive malfeasance, and lax oversight by corporate directors and government agencies that ultimately destroyed the majority of dot-com startups as well as countless investment portfolios across America. Hiraoka analyzes specific events and corporate alliances that contributed to the Internet's development, and compares the startup companies that began operating with questionable business plans that inevitably failed. He covers the anti-trust case against Microsoft; the successes of eBay, Amazon, Yahoo, and Google; "road-kills" along the information highway such as the forgotten eToys; as well as the Enron implosion and other corporate scandals. After tracing this amazing story he concludes that the illegal practices and the ensuing $7 trillion loss in equity markets slowed the Internet revolution but could not snuff it out, and with worldwide economic recovery e-business surges onward.

It's the thick of the mid-1990s boom, and David M. Gross is racking up billable hours for a Manhattan corporate law firm and thinking that there must be more to life. Out of the blue, a friend calls with a tantalizing and risky proposal: How would he feel about moving to Bologna to help turn around a legendary, down-on-its-luck Italian motorcycle company, known for its dominance on the track and its inability to turn a profit? After a brief soul-search and popping his first (unintentional) wheelie during his maiden ride on the company's monstrous superbike, he signs on. And so Gross heads to Bologna, fabled home of marbled meats, radical leftist politics, and bespoke shoes, diving into his new life as the "corporate image consultant" to gearheads and learning to navigate the giddy mores of Bolognese society. He meets the CEO, who can relax only on planes between meetings; the manic, bellicose bike designer, convinced that only his genius can save the company; and the director of the museum, obsessed by the factory's role in World War II. Gross sparks the business's "spectacularization" with sexy ad campaigns starring factory workers who, when not on strike, strut to the espresso machine clad in Versace. Above all, he falls in love with motorcycles, seduced by speed, and realizes that becoming a better rider means tapping into dormant parts of his self that, as it turns out, were just waiting to be unleashed. And when he picks up a handsome, young—and closeted—skinhead, things really get interesting . . . In sensuous, hilarious, and wildly entertaining prose, Gross pens a wry yet ecstatic love letter to an uproarious city and its style-obsessed denizens, and to the motorcycle that gave him the freedom to live life at its very fastest.
