BOOK EXCERPT:

“There has never been a better book about hip-hop…a record-biz portrait that jumps off the page.”—A.V. Club THE INSPIRATION FOR THE VH1 SERIES THE BREAKS The Big Payback takes readers from the first $15 made by a “rapping DJ” in 1970s New York to the multi-million-dollar sales of the Phat Farm and Roc-a-Wear clothing companies in 2004 and 2007. On this four-decade-long journey from the studios where the first rap records were made to the boardrooms where the big deals were inked, The Big Payback tallies the list of who lost and who won. Read the secret histories of the early long-shot successes of Sugar Hill Records and Grandmaster Flash, Run DMC's crossover breakthrough on MTV, the marketing of gangsta rap, and the rise of artist/ entrepreneurs like Jay-Z and Sean “Diddy” Combs. 300 industry giants like Def Jam founders Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons gave their stories to renowned hip-hop journalist Dan Charnas, who provides a compelling, never-before-seen, myth-debunking view into the victories, defeats, corporate clashes, and street battles along the 40-year road to hip-hop's dominance.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Don’t get mad, get even… Phil Town’s first book, the #1 New York Times bestseller Rule #1, was a guide to stock trading for people who believe they lack the knowledge to trade. But because many people aren’t ready to go from mutual funds directly into trading without understanding investing—for the long term – he created Payback Time. Too often, people see long-term investing as “mutual fund contributing” – otherwise known as “long-term hoping.” But the sad truth is that mutual fund investors are, to a stunning degree, pinning their hopes on an institution that is hopeless. It turns out that only 4% of fund managers consistently beat the S&P 500 index over the long term, which means that 96% of fund investors see a smaller return on their nest egg than a chimpanzee who simply buys stocks in the 500 biggest companies in America and watches what happens. But it’s worse than that. The net effect of hitching your wagon to mutual funds is that over a lifetime they’ll fritter away as much 60% of your nest egg in fees. Once you understand how funds engineer this, you’ll rush to invest on your own. Payback Time’s risk-free approach is called “stockpiling” and it’s how billionaires get rich in bad markets. It’s a set of rules for investing (not trading but investing) in the right businesses at the right time -- rules that will ensure you make the big money.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This is an antidote to mainstream management and development practices of conformity, inefficiency, and environmental degradation. It reveals a new standard of symbiotic relationships between the built environment and the natural world, eliminating problems at the source, while creating high-performance, profit-generating real estate.This book examines the cause-effect relationships between buildings and the surrounding landscape, water bodies, and local climate. Working with, not against these forces creates more synergy and balance, and reveals a host of valuable opportunities resulting in more climate-resilient buildings, reduced costs, and ecosystem regeneration. Designing in concert with the natural world also solves flooding problems and health-threatening sewer overflows while replenishing aquifers, and turns polluted, algae-ridden lakes into healthy, balanced ecosystems without chemicals or dredging.Design methods and case studies are outlined in great detail, enabling readers to become more independent, self-reliant, and less dependent on outdated, expensive, centralized systems. Also discussed are rights of ecosystems to exist and flourish, and how new legislation is being passed worldwide to afford legal rights to these systems.This book helps readers derive all the economic, health and environmental benefits of a more integrated approach to building and land/water management.
