Download and read online The International Film Business in PDF and EPUB On Obama examines some of the key philosophical questions that accompany the historic emergence of the 44th US president. The purpose of the book is to take seriously the once-common thought that Mr. Obama had ushered in a post-historical age. Three questions organize the argument of the book. Has the US become post-racial? Does Obama's pragmatism show the way to a post-partisan approach to politics? And does the reining in of US power and ambitions signal the emergence of a post-imperial moment? The book does not answer these questions directly, but considers how Mr. Obama's public image and career raise the questions, and experiments with some lines of thought that emerge in their light.

Download and read online Escape from Film School in PDF and EPUB Escape From Film School tells the sprightly tale of a young man who makes it in Hollywood without ever leaving film school. When Stuart arrives in California in the Sixties, he is fleeing the draft and he quite literally stumbles into USC's film school. Within a few weeks he is living out of his car and making student films with stolen equipment. Within a few years he is rubbing elbows with a young Mike Ovitz and other characters pulled straight from the pages of Variety. Blessed with a biting wit and a jaundiced eye, Stuart is a keen observer of the machinations, power plays, and absurdities of the movie biz. His account of his own circuitous progress -- and that of his beautiful and ambitious wife, Veronica; his beautiful and ambitious girlfriend, Ginger; and his loyal daughter, Rainbeaux -- also offers an incisive and satirical look at this bizarre, yet fascinating world. Like The Player, it is a dead-on, often hilarious and occasionally poignant tale about survival and redemption in Hollywood.

Download and read online Beyond Success in PDF and EPUB Most classic success stories go something like this: “I had nothing, but then discovered a new way of thinking, turned my life around and got everything I ever wanted…” I could tell you one such story. I went from having nothing to everything I’d ever wanted in the space of about two years—what at the time was the life of my dreams—only to discover that success wasn’t what I thought it was. I couldn’t identify it, but there was still something missing. Implicit in the statement “money won’t buy us happiness” is the idea that something else will, even if we don’t know what that something else is. This is what led me to my beyond success story—the search for what lies beyond the things I thought would make me happy...
