"Straight Talk for Startups memorializes age-old best practices and empowers both experienced and new investment professionals to beat the odds."—David Krane, CEO, Google Ventures "Straight Talk for Startups is filled with real, raw, and fact-based ‘rules of the road’ that you need to know when diving into our ultra-competitive startup world. A must read and a re-read!"—Tony Fadell, Coinventor of the iPod/iPhone & Founder of Nest Labs Veteran venture capitalist Randy Komisar and finance executive Jantoon Reigersman share no-nonsense, counterintuitive guidelines to help anyone build a successful startup. Over the course of their careers, Randy Komisar and Jantoon Reigersman continue to see startups crash and burn because they forget the timeless lessons of entrepreneurship. But, as Komisar and Reigersman show, you can beat the odds if you quickly learn what insiders know about what it takes to build a healthy foundation for a thriving venture. In Straight Talk for Startups they walk budding entrepreneurs through 100 essential rules—from pitching your idea to selecting investors to managing your board to deciding how and when to achieve liquidity. Culled from their own decades of experience, as well as the experiences of their many successful colleagues and friends, the rules are organized under broad topics, from "Mastering the Fundamentals" and "Selecting the Right Investors," to "The Ideal Fundraise," "Building and Managing Effective Boards," and "Achieving Liquidity." Vital rules you’ll find in Straight Talk for Startups include: The best ideas originate from founders who are users Create two business plans: an execution plan and an aspirational plan Net income is an option, but cash flow is a fact Don’t accept money from strangers Personal wealth doesn’t equal good investing Small boards are better than big ones Add independent board members for expertise and objectivity Too many unanimous board decisions are a sign of trouble Choose an acquirer, don’t wait to be chosen Learn the rules by heart so you know when to break them Filled with helpful real-life examples and specific, actionable advice, Straight Talk for Startups is the ideal handbook for anyone running, working for, or thinking about creating a startup, or just curious about what makes high-potential ventures tick.

It's summer in Memphis. The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels. Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life. Now he doesn't have a job or a prayer...except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it. By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings. A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill and outright violence--a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land.... BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

From Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, acclaimed author of The Most Beautiful Book in the World and The Woman with the Bouquet, comes another collection of richly imagined narratives that consolidate his position as a master of the novella. In this collection’s opening story, a woman with more skeletons in the closet than most falls in love with a parish priest, to whom she confesses her sins. But her motives and her intentions are anything but honorable or pious. The title story is the tale of two friends and rivals whose differences will at first lead to a terrifying and near fatal accident, and then to a vendetta lasting a lifetime. In “The Return,” while away at sea a father is told that one of his four daughters has died but not which. He will ask himself the question no father should have to ask: which child would he want dead. His long ruminations will lead him to a realization of his failings as a man and a father and ultimately toward a touching transformation. “Love at the Elysée Palace” is as fine a short story as any in contemporary literature, and one that treats the themes of love, marriage, and forgiveness with superb delicacy and remarkable tenderness. In this vivid collection, Schmitt writes about regret and redemption, about the roles of love and memory in our lives, all with a lightness and compassion that is as rare as it is inspiring.

Fort de ses différents succès, tant critiques que commerciaux, le cinéma de Hong Kong perturbe le monde occidental qui découvre cette nouvelle vision du septième art, pourtant née en 1909. En effet, ces dernières années, ce cinéma s'exporte de plus en plus en Occident, que ce soit en Europe, principalement par le biais de l'Angleterre et de la France, ou aux États-Unis. Comment peut-on expliquer une découverte si tardive, et les multiples réactions qui l'ont accompagnée ? C'est ce que cet ouvrage va tenter d'expliquer au travers de différentes réflexions et recherches, tout en essayant de démontrer que cet art est loin d'être aussi limité et caricatural que ce que certains préjugés laissent penser...

« Stairway to Heaven », « Satisfaction », « Smells Like Teen Spirit »… Bien plus que des chansons, ces œuvres devenues mythiques appartiennent à la légende du Rock. Elles sont entrées dans nos vies, y ont déposé un peu de paradis et tissent un fil d’Ariane invisible entre des millions de fans du rock. Les grandes chansons du rock ont une perfection, une grâce, un sens du drame ou de l’harmonie qui semblent relever de la magie. À jamais magnifiques, elles semblent résider hors du temps. C’est l’histoire de ces monuments du rock, de ces petits moments d’éternité musicale que l’auteur a voulu conter. Comment ont pris forme « Vertiges de l’amour », « Hotel California », « Sultans of Swing », « Paris s’éveille »… ? Tout au long de ces incroyables récits où l’on côtoie Bob Dylan, Gainsbourg, Sting ou Lennon comme Mick Jagger ou Kate Bush, l’on assiste à la genèse d’un art à part entière, jalonnée par l’éclosion de chansons hors du commun.
