Yang Shaolong

The Huawei Way: Lessons from an International Tech Giant on Driving Growth by Focusing on Never-Ending Innovation by Yang Shaolong

Model your company's future on the success of tech's quiet giant

BusinessWeek once listed Chinese tech firm Huawei as one of the ten most influential companies on the planet, and Time placed its founder Ren Zhengfei in the top 100 most influential men in the world. Once considered an insignificant upstart bound for failure like so many other early tech companies, Huawei is now a $62 billion company employing 190,000 people worldwide.

Tropicana Nights: The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Nightclub

Rosa Lowinger & Ofelia Fox

Tropicana Nights: The Life and Times of the Legendary Cuban Nightclub by Rosa Lowinger & Ofelia FoxTropicana is to Cuba what the Bolshoi is to Russia, the Moulin Rouge to Paris, or the Blue Note to New York-an enduring cultural mecca. This definitive biography of the place that was known as Paradise Under the Stars, vividly describes the 1950s nightclub that was part casino, part cabaret and was the only club owned and run by Cubans rather than the American mob. Nat "King" Cole, Liberace, and Carmen Miranda performed there before audiences that included Joan Crawford, Marlon Brando, and Ernest Hemingway. The book portrays the cultural richness and roiling social problems of pre-Revolutionary...

Glass House: The 1% Economy and the Shattering of the All-American Town

Brian Alexander

Glass House: The 1% Economy and the Shattering of the All-American Town by Brian Alexander

In 1947, Forbes magazine declared Lancaster, Ohio the epitome of the all-American town. Today it is damaged, discouraged, and fighting for its future. In Glass House, journalist Brian Alexander uses the story of one town to show how seeds sown 35 years ago have sprouted to give us Trumpism, inequality, and an eroding national cohesion.

The Anchor Hocking Glass Company, once the world's largest maker of glass tableware, was the base on which Lancaster's society was built. As Glass House unfolds, bankruptcy looms. With access to the company and its leaders, and Lancaster's citizens, Alexander shows...
