Jayson Williams

Former NBA All-Star Jayson Williams' charisma, generosity and high-energy hustle made him one of America's most popular pro athletes during the 90s, and eventually landed him a remarkable $86 million contract with the New Jersey Nets. Referred to as "The People's Player," Jayson's magnetic appeal and tenacity on the boards made him a fierce, yet beloved competitor who spent his time off court flying planes, building houses, and tending to the chores on the farm with his father. His easy charm and sidesplitting one-liners consistently landed him on NBA sportswriters' All-Interview team and made him an audience favorite on the media circuits. But few knew the depths of pain, tragedy and addiction masked by a smile his grandmother called his "most beautiful attire." Lying on his bunk amongst "the most confrontational bunch of misfits," Jayson recalls his rapid climb and mighty fall, and his father's wise words: "A lifetime of happiness as you know it, Jayson, no man alive could bear it. It would be hell on earth. You have to stick to your morning routine." From the New York Times bestselling author of Loose Balls, Humbled is a powerful and candid collection of Jayson's personal letters and journals from behind bars. Shocking revelations, surprising connections, shameful secrets, and scars that only God can heal-Jayson holds nothing back as he writes about his journey to faith on both sides of the barbed-wire fences.

In 1711 Peter the Great, the Tsar of Russia, led a large army of veterans from Poltava and his other Great Northern War victories into the Balkans. He aimed to humble the Ottomans in the same way he had the Swedes a few years before. Victory would secure useful allies in the Balkans, cement Russia's 'Great Power' status and offer Peter the opportunity to finally gain control over the Swedish king, Charles XII, thus completing his victory over Sweden. Yet within a few months, the 'backward' Ottomans had forced the Tsar and his Tsarina and their army of veterans into a humbling surrender near the Pruth River. The war was the first time that Russia was strong enough to confront the Ottomans independently rather than as a member of an alliance. It marked an important stage in Russia's development. However, it also showed the significant military strength of the Ottoman Empire and the limitations of Peter the Great's achievements. The war was of significance to the allies of both the Russians and the Ottomans. It was of course of an even greater importance to all those directly affected by the war such as the Swedish, the Polish, and the Cossacks, who had taken refuge from the reverses of the Great Northern War in the Ottoman territory. It would also bring about the defeat of the Moldavian and Walachian ambitions to shake off the Ottoman overlordship, elevating Dimitrie Cantemir into the position of a national hero celebrated to this day by the people of Romania. The book looks at the causes of this little known war and its course. Using contemporary and modern sources it examines in detail the forces involved in the conflict, seeking to determine their size, actual composition, and tactics, offering the first realistic determination on the subject in English.

The three stories retold in this Chitra Katha anticipate in a sense, the tragedy that was to strike Ravana, the Rakshasa king, when he abducted Sita and took on an adversary like Rama. Ravana failed to learn the lessons of humility from these early confrontations. These encounters are significant as one is on the divine level, another on the human and a third on the simian. It is, however, to Ravana's credit that he came out unscathed in each of these encounters, richer in alliances and friendships.

Trevor Ganshaw

The fall and rise of a trillion-dollar industry Just three years ago, hedge funds were at the top of the investment world. Years of unparalleled growth had pushed assets to nearly $3 trillion. Leverage was used so aggressively that total long and short investments approached an astonishing $10 trillion. Thousands of new funds had sprouted in every corner of the market, and managers, enjoying an almost unimaginable pool of fees, were dubbed the new “masters of the universe.” Then came 2008.The industry suffered its worst performance ever, losing $600 billion or roughly 20% in a single year. Multibilliondollar hedge funds collapsed overnight, epic frauds were revealed, and assets plummeted as spooked investors scrambled to get their money back. The near collapse of the industry is one of the most dramatic stories of the global economic meltdown. It’s also among the most instructive— because hedge funds are still alive and, if managed wisely, will emerge stronger than ever in the coming years. In Hedge Funds Humbled, industry insider Trevor Ganshaw provides a detailed primer of the industry and explains how the people who earned more than $100 billion in fees during their short but happy heyday planted the seeds of their own destruction. He paints a vivid picture of how the industry leaders’ major mistakes destroyed hundreds of billions of investor capital; Ganshaw calls them the “seven deadly sins” of the hedge fund industry: Out-of-control leverage Inadequate risk management Flawed fee structures Overcrowded strategies The Peter Principle of too much capital Capital instability Fraud, enabled by lax controls Ganshaw examines the future of the industry and shows investors what to look for and what to avoid. There’s still money to be made in hedge funds and, in his estimation, the industry is poised for a comeback. “As all good hedge fund managers know, greed is good,” he writes. “Humility, it seems, may now be an essential part of keeping it that way.” More dramatic than fiction, Hedge Funds Humbled is a timely work that provides a critical look at an industry gone bad—and an optimistic look at its future.
