Wenn Bill Gates in seinem Blog ein Buch zum "besten Wirtschaftsbuch" kürt und nebenbei erwähnt, dass er es sich vor Jahren von Warren Buffett geliehen hat, dann kommt das dabei heraus: Ein seit Jahren vergriffenes Werk wird wieder zum Bestseller. "Business Adventures" wurde erstmals im Jahr 1968 veröffentlicht. Es enthält zwölf Essays des New Yorker Journalisten John Brooks, in denen dieser beschreibt, wie sich das Schicksal gigantischer Unternehmen durch einen Schlüsselmoment entschied. Sie geben einen zeitlosen und tiefen Einblick in die Mechanismen der Wirtschaft und der Wall Street. Bis vor wenigen Monaten war das Buch jahrelang vergriffen. Dann lobte Bill Gates es über den grünen Klee. Der Rest ist Geschichte. "Business Adventures" schoss umgehend in die

Ever wondered if DESTINY exists? Or did it ever cross your mind that you might have control over your own destiny and maybe even the destiny of others? Well, sit back and enjoy the journey with Sasha (Aleks) and Borya (Boris) as they travel the world without any plans or direction. Using only their intuition, signs from the universe, and lots of blind luck along the way, they venture into a world that even they couldn’t have imagined or expected. Join them on a thrilling and continuous nomadic adventure full of excitement, laughter, love, and much more. Follow along with this honest, raw, and unfiltered day-by-day narrative of their stories traveling from one country to the next, whether by bus, plane, ferry, hitchhiking, or simply walking across the border by foot. With only one tiny backpack strapped to each of them, they start their international journey in Japan and slowly head west to circle their way back around to where they first started: New Jersey. While all stories have a beginning, this one starts right in the middle of (one of) the most pivotal decisions of their life together. Quitting their jobs again, getting rid of anything and everything they could, they decide to backpack the world with little money, no plans, and a whole lot of hope and trust that things would work out. With a little positivity and a lot of silencing of the opinions around them, they begin their very first backpacking experience in Japan while bracing and preparing themselves for their upcoming adventure (Book 2) in North Korea. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. “Okay, this is it. No turning back now.” Boris slowly tucked his iPhone back into his front, jean pocket. “I ordered the Uber, he’ll be here in six minutes.” As we moved our backpacks towards the doorway, we did something that we both separately did growing up—took a seat before leaving on a trip. I always just wrote it off like any other kooky, Moldovan superstition, like not giving anyone a kiss over a threshold or not whistling inside the house, you know the normal stuff. But, as I got older, I realized that maybe there was something more to it. Maybe, when we force our bodies into rest, it allows the mind to relax and jogs any forgotten memory (such as the iPhone charger or something less vital, like a passport). We took a long, deep breath in. Slow exhale. “Okay, he's here.” “I can't believe this is happening, are you ready?” “Ready as I’ll ever be.” I remember the exact moment that I found out. I almost shattered the tempered glass mug from four stories onto the Brooklyn asphalt. Here we were, having our ritual morning tea and wake-and-bake one hitter on the balcony of his one-bedroom when he unloaded this bomb on me. Traveling was in my blood. It was my passion. It took nearly all of my mom's sly efforts and half-desperate attempts to keep me from escaping the confines of my comfy, New Jersey existence. I always had new fantasies of where to move or travel next. Every year, it would get farther and farther away. Less than a year before meeting Boris and I was already researching immigration policies in Singapore. Enough said. “Hellooo? Are you there?” “Yeah, sorry, I zoned out.” I had a way of daydreaming mid-conversation, a coping mechanism turned bad habit I picked up in childhood. “You were saying.” “So, on that flight back from LA, as we were landing in JFK, the pilot, without warning, changed directions and we skyrocketed back into the air. Everyone was screaming, it was crazy. And ever since then, I can't fly.” If he hadn't been him, it would've been a deal breaker for sure. Luckily, I had hope. And that hope led us here. Almost two years of marriage later and we would finally have our very first flight together. I could hardly wait.

What accounts for the massive global popularity of action films and adventure literature? How do men and women respond to iconic screen stars such as Jackie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve McQueen, and Charlton Heston? Action genres have been Hollywood's most profitable global exports for most of its history, their male heroes the subject of much fascination and derision. Bestselling literary thrillers, from The Hunt for Red October to Into Thin Air , have also contributed markedly to popular understandings of male activity. Action Figures takes stock of action narratives' many appeals and recognizes how contemporary crises of gender identity manifest themselves in popular commercial texts.
