Drei Jahre lang ist Mandy Winters als Hure Channel Männern aller Gesellschaftsschichten zu Diensten. Sie bedient Freier aller Altersklassen und Berufsgruppen, Piloten und Anwälte genauso wie einfache Angestellte. Sie erfüllt geheime Wünsche und lässt viel über sich ergehen, erträgt aufdringliche Kunden, skrupellose Puffmütter und zickige Kolleginnen. Ein Teufelskreis aus Geldgier, dem Wunsch nach Liebe, Abscheu und Krankheit beginnt. Dann entscheidet sie sich für den Ausstieg - und der ist schlimmer als alles, was sie in der Prostitution erlebt hat. Mühsam kämpft sie sich zurück ins Leben und muss dabei viele Rückschläge überwinden. Die Diskriminierung der Gesellschaft ist ihr größtes Hindernis auf dem Weg zurück aus dem Puff. Aber Mandy bleibt stark und wird schließlich für ihre Ausdauer belohnt.

On March 14, 2012, more than three million people read Greg Smith's bombshell Op-­Ed in the New York Times titled "Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs.­" The column immediately went viral, became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, and drew passionate responses from former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch, and New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg. Mostly, though, it hit a nerve among the general public who question the role of Wall Street in society -- and the callous "take-­the-­money-­and-­run" mentality that brought the world economy to its knees a few short years ago. Smith now picks up where his Op-­Ed left off. His story begins in the summer of 2000, when an idealistic 21-­year-­old arrives as an intern at Goldman Sachs and learns about the firm's Business Principle #1: Our clients' interests always come first.

Published to critical acclaim twenty years ago, and now considered a classic, is the most ambitious history ever written about American finance. It is a rich, panoramic story of four generations of Morgans and the powerful, secretive firms they spawned, ones that would transform the modern financial world. Tracing the trajectory of J. P. Morgan’s empire from its obscure beginnings in Victorian London to the financial crisis of 1987, acclaimed author Ron Chernow paints a fascinating portrait of the family’s private saga and the rarefied world of the American and British elite in which they moved-­a world that included Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, Franklin Roosevelt, Nancy Astor, and Winston Churchill. A masterpiece of financial history-­it was awarded the 1990 National Book Award for Nonfiction and selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century- is a compelling account of a remarkable institution and the men who ran it, and an . . .

To most companies, efficiency means profits and growth. But what if your “efficient” company—the one with the reduced headcount and the “stretch” goals—is actually slowing down and losing money? What if your employees are burning out doing the work of two or more people, leaving them no time for planning, prioritizing, or even lunch? What if you’re losing employees faster than you can hire them? What if your superefficient company is suddenly falling behind? Tom DeMarco, a leading management consultant to both Fortune 500 and up-­and-­coming companies, has discovered a counterintuitive principle that explains why efficiency improvement can sometimes make a company. If your real organizational goal is to become fast (responsive and agile), then he proposes that what you need is not more efficiency, but more slack. What is “slack”? Slack is the degree of freedom in a company that allows it to change. It could be something as simple as adding an assistant to a department, letting . . .
