THE ART OF DISTRESSED M&A: BUYING, SELLING, AND FINANCING TROUBLED AND INSOLVENT COMPANIES
Author : H. Peter Nesvold and Jeffrey Anapolsky
Opportunities abound in “bankruptcy beauties”―both in good times and bad. The Art of Distressed M&A provides the information needed to manage the unique complexities of buying, selling, and financing troubled companies. The book also highlights practical examples using recent bankruptcy cases following the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 and is the first publication of its kind since the Dodd–Frank Act of 2010.
THE GLOBAL MINOTAUR
Author : Yanis Varoufakis
In this remarkable and provocative book, Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece, explodes the myth that ineffective regulation of banks, greed and globalization were at the heart of both the Eurozone crisis and the global economic crisis. Rather, he makes the case that they are mere symptoms of a much deeper malaise, traceable to the Great Crash of 1929, then on through to the 1970s: the time when a Global Minotaur was born.
GOOD TO GREAT: WHY SOME COMPANIES MAKE THE LEAP… AND OTHERS DON’T
Author : Jim Collins
Good to Great introduces readers to the concept of an enduring great company, one that sustains tremendous growth for at least 15 years from the so called “turning point”. Published in 2001, the book offers a well-reasoned road map to excellence for any organization and gives a great opportunity to analyze how much endurance there is in a great enduring company.
THE BOOK OF AWAKENING: HAVING THE LIFE YOU WANT BY BEING PRESENT IN THE LIFE YOU HAVE

A year’s supply of wise and shining thoughts to be taken, one a day, like vitamins for the soul. Highly recommended by Oprah Winfrey and one of her Ultimate Favorite Things.
