Chances are you haven’t been making the best investing decisions. Why? BECAUSE THAT’S HOW WALL STREET WANTS IT Wall Street is very good at one thing: convincing you to act against your own interests. And there’s no one out there better equipped with the knowledge and moxie to explain how it all works than Josh Brown. A man The New York Times referred to as “the Merchant of Snark” and Barron’s called “pot-stirring and provocative,” Brown worked for 10 years in the industry, a time during which he learned some hard truths about how clients are routinely treated—and how their money is sent on a one-way trip to Wall Street’s coffers. Backstage Wall Street reveals the inner workings of the world’s biggest money machine and explains how a relatively small confederation of brilliant, sometimes ill-intentioned people fuel it, operate it, and repair it when necessary—none of which is for the good of the average investor. Offering a look that only a long-term insider could provide (and that only a “reformed” insider would want to provide), Brown describes: THE PEOPLE—Why retail brokers always profit—even if you don’t THE PRODUCTS—How funds, ETFs, and other products are invented as failsafe profit generators—for the inventors alone THE PITCH—The marketing schemes designed for one thing and one thing only: to separate you from your money It’s that bad . . . but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Brown gives you the knowledge you need to make the right decisions at the right time. Backstage Wall Street is about seeing reality for what it is and adjusting your actions accordingly. It’s about learning who and what to steer clear of at all times. And it’s about setting the stage for a bright financial future—your own way.

In The Frontlines of Peace, Séverine Autesserre, award-winning researcher and peacebuilder, examines the well-intentioned but systematically flawed peace industry. The author sheds light on how typical aid interveners have been getting it wrong, and, more importantly, how a few of them have been getting it right. With real-life examples drawn from across the globe, Autesserre reveals that peace can grow in the most unlikely circumstances, with the helpof the most unlikely heroes. She makes the compelling case that we must radically change our approach if we hope to build lasting peace around us--no matter where we live.

New York isn't for the faint-hearted and neither is the Avant-Guide series of travel books. Unlike other travel guides, which offer such unhelpful platitudes as "wear comfortable shoes", Avant-Guide New York City writes for today's modern, cosmopolitan traveler who doesn't want to be advised on footwear, especially in New York, where "comfortable shoes" won't get you into the latest club. With the tagline "Refuse to be a Tourist!" Avant-Guide New York City offers up-to-date and up-to-speed information highlighted by colorized photos, edgy graphics, vibrant features, thorough maps, and coverage of the current cultural scene so readers can dive head-first into what's hot in the city that never sleeps. With an inside scoop on film, music, art, and literature, Avant-Guide New York City will direct sophisticated travelers to venues and happenings they won't find in the tired old guidebooks their parents toted. Articles and interviews with over a dozen leading artists, filmmakers, musicians, chefs, fashion designers, and politicians introduce readers to the cultural lifeblood of New York from Greenwich Village and Broadway to Wall Street and Central Park. As stylish and colorful as New York itself, Avant-Guide New York City uses non-traditional typefaces, undulating text, extraordinary photographs, and hip computer-enhanced graphics to meet the vacation needs of the large population of travelers between the ages of 18 and 49. The semi-soft covers are extremely durable, feel good in the hand, and don't make their users stand out like the usual guidebook-lugging tourists. Written and edited by residents of New York City, this guide shows travelers the new, the interesting, and the best ofwhat the city has to offer.
