An award-winning documentary photographer delivers a stunning visual history of the Silicon Valley technology boom, in which he was witness to key moments in the careers of Steve Jobs and more than seventy other leading innovators as they created today’s digital world. An eye-opening chronicle of the Silicon Valley technology boom, capturing key moments in the careers of Steve Jobs and more than seventy other leading innovators as they created today’s digital world In the spring of 1985, a technological revolution was under way in Silicon Valley, and documentary photographer Doug Menuez was there in search of a story—something big. At the same time, Steve Jobs was being forced out of his beloved Apple and starting over with a new company, NeXT Computer. His goal was to build a supercomputer with the power to transform education. Menuez had found his story: he proposed to photograph Jobs and his extraordinary team as they built this new computer, from conception to product launch. In an amazing act of trust, Jobs granted Menuez unlimited access to the company, and, for the next three years, Menuez was able to get on film the spirit and substance of innovation through the day-to-day actions of the world’s top technology guru. From there, the project expanded to include the most trailblazing companies in Silicon Valley, all of which granted Menuez the same complete access that Jobs had. Menuez photographed behind the scenes with John Warnock at Adobe, John Sculley at Apple, Bill Gates at Microsoft, John Doerr at Kleiner Perkins, Bill Joy at Sun Microsystems, Gordon Moore and Andy Grove at Intel, Marc Andreessen at Netscape, and more than seventy other leading companies and innovators. It would be fifteen years before Menuez stopped taking pictures, just as the dotcom bubble burst. An extraordinary era was coming to its close. With his singular behind-the-scenes access to these notoriously insular companies, Menuez was present for moments of heartbreaking failure and unexpected success, moments that made history, and moments that revealed the everyday lives of the individuals who made it happen. This period of rapid, radical change would affect almost every aspect of our culture and our lives in ways both large and small and would also create more jobs and wealth than any other time in human history. And Doug Menuez was there, a witness to a revolution. In more than a hundred photographs and accompanying commentary, Fearless Genius captures the human face of innovation and shows what it takes to transform powerful ideas into reality.

In 1952 a country clergyman called Smith begins his tortuous quest for the Holy Grail of alchemy - the Philosophers' Stone which transmutes base metal to gold and confers immortality. As he pits himself against the bizarre perils of the Great Work, it becomes clear that his arcane transformations are as much spiritual as chemical. Gradually the shadow of alchemy falls over those around him; a young girl whose sudden pregnancy is a local scandal; Janet, trapped in a barren marriage; and Robert who pursues his own quest for the legendary blue glass of Chartres. Thirty years later, Eileen comes to live in Smith's vicarage. In the medieval cellar she unearths a hidden manuscript and begins to read of secret fire and mysterious prime matter, a green lion and a raven's head, a fatal conjunction of king and queen, a descent into Blackness and putrefaction. As she penetrates farther into the alchemical labyrinth, she is haunted both by her own history and by that of her neighbours, the menacing Mrs Zetterberg and the disfigured Pluto - and, finally, by the enigma of Smith himself. In separate but interwoven accounts, Smith and Eileen strive towards the one thing necessary for the Work's success - the great Secret guarded by the paradoxical Mercurius, who leads them to the zero point where Heaven is wedded to Earth and the miraculous Stone appears at the intersection of time and eternity. By reconstructing a highly sophisticated but almost forgotten world-view, Mercurius restores to us our own spiritual heritage which, rooted in the alchemists' dark retorts, will perhaps flower in the light of the future.

Dolly Gebler, daughter of a Midwestern pharmaceuticals mogul with a mania for collecting art, was raised amongst her father's Flemish Masters and abstract expressionists and is dedicated to the idea that art can change the world. Her husband Alfred is a poor boy from Brooklyn who now has a taste for tequila and nightclubs. Together they form the Aurora Foundation whose mission is to pick out a few artists of genius and bankroll them for life. Into this world comes Isaac Hooker, a 25 year old Harvard drop-out with no real direction to his life. After attending art classes, he stumbles into a job at Aurora and becomes Dolly's genius, for whom she wants to make everything possible. Fernanda Eberstadt's novel succeeds both as a satire of the pretensions and posing of the 1980s New York art world and as a witty, unsentimental portrait of her three central characters.

Hailed by industry experts as the most accurate, detailed, and entertaining book on tequila ever written, The Book of Tequila gives us a tour through the mysterious world of this historic and subtle distilled beverage. It constitutes a comprehensive sourcebook on every aspect of Tequila, including all the basic facts on the world's most popular cocktail, the margarita. This 2002 edition provides an update on the tumultuous developments in the tequila industry over the last five years, and evaluates the new labels that have come on the market in that time. The author offers a charming account of the amazing blue agave plant, the essential ingredient in Tequila, outlines the growing, harvesting and manufacturing process, makes comparisons with other agave-derived drinks such as mescal, relates the agave and tequila to the social history of Mexico, and dispels many myths about tequila (it's not made from cactus and it never contains a worm). Bob Emmons identifies the two basic kinds and seven broad varieties of tequila, and explains precisely why 90 percent of the tequila drunk by Americans is of extremely inferior quality, scarcely meriting the name. He reveals how you can find excel

Daniel Call was a man who had it all. Born to newly converted Christians, his father was a full professor in physics and an early creator of software that changed the computer world and made the family billionaires. Daniel himself was a genius that spoke several languages at an early age. But Daniel had a secret. At age four, he was visited by the angel Gabriel who told him he would be a man that would change the world. At age twelve, he was again visited by Gabriel and performed his first miracle, one witnessed by a reporter from a major newspaper, a miracle that for a brief time made headlines. Due to the work of the family lawyer, Daniel was able to settle back into obscurity until the age of eighteen when his parents were tragically killed in a plane crash. Orphaned, he was introduced as the world’s most eligible bachelor by People Magazine. Worth nearly two billion dollars, he was tall, handsome, and a noted genius. For several months his face dominated tabloid journalism. He then stunned the world by giving most of his money away to charity and taking vows of abstinence and chastity. Daniel, however, had never forgotten the early visits from Gabriel and was determined to prepare himself for whatever lay ahead. He moved quietly to Boone, North Carolina, where he attended classes at Appalachian State and Wake Forest Universities. Suddenly, three years later, Gabriel reappeared and the miracles began that would shake the world. Many of these miracles were captured on live television and fed the mid 1990's newly founded cable news networks and fueled a fresh avalanche of tabloid and hard printed news. Daniel led a “walking” crusade that covered thousands of miles where he was followed by tens of thousands of people. He had an inner core of followers that began to be called his disciples. Meanwhile the forces of evil conspired with many in the established faiths to discredit and destroy Daniel. As these forces gained strength, Daniel began to change his ministry, spending more time alone as he prepared for the end and sending out disciples to do their own miracles and teaching. God’s power was soon revealed in a way that left few doubters, a stunning last miracle that showed the power of God, and His judgment and infinite mercy. Daniel’s final legacy would not be in the miracles, but in the changes that a life lived in denial of self would cause.

The firsthand account of the trials and tribulations of engineering one of the most complex pieces of space technology, the Mars Rover Curiosity, by its chief engineer Rob Manning In the course of our enduring quest for knowledge about ourselves and our universe, we haven't found answers to one of our most fundamental questions: Does life exist anywhere else in the universe? Ten years and billions of dollars in the making, the Mars Rover Curiosity is poised to answer this all-important question. In Mars Rover Curiosity: An Inside Account from Curiosity's Chief Engineer, Rob Manning, the project's chief engineer, tells of bringing the groundbreaking spacecraft to life. Manning and his team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, tasked with designing a lander many times larger and more complex than any before, faced technical setbacks, fights over inadequate resources, and the challenges of leading an army of brilliant, passionate, and often frustrated experts. Manning's fascinating personal account--which includes information from his exclusive interviews with leading Curiosity scientists--is packed with tales of revolutionary feats of science, technology, and engineering. Readers experience firsthand the disappointment at encountering persistent technical problems, the agony of near defeat, the sense of victory at finding innovative solutions to these problems, the sheer terror of staking careers and reputations on a lander that couldn't be tested on Earth, and the rush of triumph at its successful touchdown on Mars on August 5, 2012. This is the story of persistence, dedication, and unrelenting curiosity.
