A revelatory journey inside the world of Fox News and Roger Ailes—the brash, sometimes combative network head who helped fuel the rise of Donald Trump NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A SHOWTIME LIMITED SERIES • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR When Rupert Murdoch enlisted Roger Ailes to launch a cable news network in 1996, American politics and media changed forever. With a remarkable level of detail and insight, Vanity Fair magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman puts Ailes’s unique genius on display, along with the outsize personalities—Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Megyn Kelly, Sarah Palin, Karl Rove, Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, Gretchen Carlson, Bill Shine, and others—who have helped Fox News play a defining role in the great social and political controversies of the past two decades. From the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal to the Bush-Gore recount, from the war in Iraq to the Tea Party attack on the Obama presidency, Roger Ailes developed an unrivaled power to sway the national agenda. Even more, he became the indispensable figure in conservative America and the man any Republican politician with presidential aspirations had to court. How did this man become the master strategist of our political landscape? In revelatory detail, Sherman chronicles the rise of Ailes, a frail kid from an Ohio factory town who, through sheer willpower, the flair of a showman, fierce corporate politicking, and a profound understanding of the priorities of middle America, built the most influential television news empire of our time. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with Fox News insiders past and present, Sherman documents Ailes’s tactical acuity as he battled the press, business rivals, and countless real and perceived enemies inside and outside Fox. Sherman takes us inside the morning meetings in which Ailes and other high-level executives strategized Fox’s presentation of the news to advance Ailes’s political agenda; provides behind-the-scenes details of Ail

This is the story of America's Fox News Channel - the NewsCorp phenomenon headed by Roger Ailes that spurred the rise of the Tea Party, controls political debate in the world's superpower, and counts presidential candidates on its payroll. Fox News Channel generates $1 billion in annual profits. Yet the network, one of the past quarter-century's biggest business success stories, remains shrouded in mystery. Few understand its profound influence on American politics and world affairs. Gabriel Sherman, a reporter for New York magazine, has cultivated sources at the highest rungs of the company. This is a gripping book that will reveal the real story of Fox News, starting with the founding of the network in 1996 and tracing its meteoric ascent to the present, where it dominates the political landscape in the US and increasingly throughout the world.
On April 4, 2013, a video game website reported that the next-generation Xbox console--due to be released by Microsoft the following month--would require an always-on Internet connection in order to operate. The new version of the SimCity game that had been released earlier that year with an always-on requirement had been a disaster. Hardcore gamers reacted negatively to the news. When the Xbox One console was officially revealed on May 21, Microsoft effectively confirmed that it would require an always-on connection for validating digital rights. Predictably, gamers reacted negatively, a response that was exacerbated when Microsoft's president of the interactive entertainment business, Don Mattrick, made dismissive statements about their concerns After reading and analyzing the case, students will be able to: - Address the challenge of marketing a product to multiple adjacent but very different customer segments - Understand the need for a unified vision before going to market - Develop a strategy that addresses the complexity of a world in which the company may no longer own the "loudest voice in the room."
* Order the paperback version of this book and get the ebook for free* I see a lot of self help videos and books telling people to "stand straight" or "look people in the eye" in order to look more confident. But you don't want to look more confident do you? You actually want to BE more confident, to feel it deep inside you. This is exactly how I felt when I was starting to research self-confidence. I thought to myself: "Ok, I'll look people in the eye when I talk but, what do I say?" Sure, I'll speak up more in meetings, but how? When the voice inside my head is going crazy about how I might sound weird or the question I'm asking might sound dumb. My problem wasn't that I was struggling with "getting out of my comfort zone" or "speaking up more" it was more my inner voice worrying and overthinking. An inner voice that was holding me back from my true potential. In fact, it might sound contradictory but, inside my own head I was pretty confident. I liked who I was as a person, I was just introverted and didn't feel the need to fake a personality or fake interest in a conversation if I wasn't feeling like engaging. This left me being the quiet one in the room and although I was sure of who I was as a person, I felt like people were thinking that I was too quiet or shy. So is confidence about how I feel? Or how they see me? These are the questions I wanted to answer in my book. What does TRUE confidence really mean and how does it feel. I knew it wasn't just about looking taller or having the loudest voice in the room, so what was it REALLY about? and how can I get THAT. So I created my book, The Mindset of Confidence. There's nothing in this book about trying to "appear" to be confident, it's about figuring out what confidence really is, how it really feels and how you can truly acheive confidence from within. This book includes: A look into my personal battle with being introverted/shy and how that can co-exist with confidence A secret method that I created that all
Like red hair, madness and misery can pass through generations and even cross oceans before eventually finding a repository in families whose propensity for joy or sorrow is as accessible as the stories they share. Bernardi follows Imola's family as they settle in America, creating an expansive yet intimate multigenerational tale that reaches from the rugged hillsides of Tuscany during the waning days of the nineteenth century to the affluent suburbs of Chicago at the dawn of the twenty-first.

"Most of us tend to think that there are two kinds of people in world: those who have power, and those who don't. But in reality, says Stanford Business School professor Deborah Gruenfeld, we all have more power than we think. And success is not about how much power we have, but rather how we use it. It's often assumed that power flows to those with the highest rank, the loudest voice, or the most commanding presence in the room. But in fact, there exists a quieter, softer sort of power that's just as crucial to learn to wield as the forceful kind. In life just as on stage, sometimes the most powerful actor is the one in the supporting role rather than the lead"--
In The Boiler Room Boys: An Underground Story of Science, Religion, and the Faith that Fuels Both, Tim Smith describes how from too-young an age he followed two seemingly alternate paths, religion and science, only to find that they are not alternate at all. His so-called “yellow brick road” began with a group of boys meeting independently in his grade school’s boiler room. Conflicting teaching by religious and scientific fundamentalists led him toward a PhD in biomathematics and toward atheism. His attraction to theology and philosophy and the events of his life drew his path back toward the connection between science and his childhood Christianity. However, it wasn’t the intellectual pursuits that showed him the nature of God. Rather, it was life’s experiences that allowed him to hear God’s voice and to sense God’s spirit. In The Boiler Room Boys, Smith reconciles his faith in religion and science, describing how science and theology support one another. In doing so, he also identifies where he sees that both theology and science have taken bad turns that get in the way of people young and old understanding and experiencing the world as it really is. There are many questions that couldn’t be addressed in The Boiler Room Boys, questions that Smith continues to write about from his own boiler room (www.theboilerroomboys.com).
