Winners Take All Book Summary : The New York Times bestselling, groundbreaking investigation of how the global elite's efforts to "change the world" preserve the status quo and obscure their role in causing the problems they later seek to solve. An essential read for understanding some of the egregious abuses of power that dominate today’s news. Former New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can--except ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. We see how they rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; how they lavishly reward "thought leaders" who redefine "change" in winner-friendly ways; and how they constantly seek to do more good, but never less harm. We hear the limousine confessions of a celebrated foundation boss; witness an American president hem and haw about his plutocratic benefactors; and attend a cruise-ship conference where entrepreneurs celebrate their own self-interested magnanimity. Giridharadas asks hard questions: Why, for example, should our gravest problems be solved by the unelected upper crust instead of the public institutions it erodes by lobbying and dodging taxes? He also points toward an answer: Rather than rely on scraps from the winners, we must take on the grueling democratic work of building more robust, egalitarian institutions and truly changing the world. A call to action for elites and everyday citizens alike.

Winners Take All The 9 Fundamental Rules of High Tech Strategy Book Summary : 'Winners Take All' is about building a product and a company into a winner. Written by Tony Seba, a high tech entrepreneur and Stanford University lecturer, this book is an easy-to-read guide to the strategies, tools, templates, and step-by-step implementation frameworks that recent Silicon Valley winners have used to achieve market leadership. Seba, who teaches entrepreneurship and strategic marketing looked at recent winners like Google, Symantec, Netflix, Apple, Craigslist, Salesforce, and compared them to the competition (Yahoo, McAfee, Sony) in order to learn what differentiated these companies He found 9 really simple rules that winning companies can follow. To test the 9 Rules's predictive power, the author published two portfolios. 18 months later the results were compelling: 80% of the '9 Rules' companies beat the market and the portfolio had a 57% return (details: www.tonyseba.com). Winners Take All is refreshingly free of buzzwords and consultant-speak.

Summary and Analysis Book Summary : Overall Summary of Winners Take All Winners Take All takes aim at the world of philanthropy, marketing, and the elite charade of changing the world. These are large targets tackled with precision. The book looks at issues on a macro level by evaluating their global impact and systemic roots, and also on the micro level by tracking a number of men and women directly involved in both the problems and solutions facing the United States and the broader world. The darker side of philanthropy is explored and evaluated. People with power are not likely to change the world to a significant degree, because it would threaten their own power. The people who have the power to cause positive change in the world, stand to gain the least from genuine positive change and have the most to lose as a result. Often times the rich and powerful use donations and the giving-back of their money/resources as a sort of get out of jail free card. The act of giving away their money stops critics from inquiring how they amassed their fortunes in the first place. Giving back often comes at the expense of considerably more harm being caused to generate the money that is then given back. Some of the fundamental questions that Winners Take All attempts to answer are: Is it possible to do good while doing well? Can the people with the power to change the world truly to so for the benefit of broader society, and if the answer is yes, then why hasn't any significant positive change been detected since the 1980s amongst those not in the top 1%? Why has widespread inequality continued to grow?

India Calling Book Summary : Reversing his parents immigrant path, a young writer returns to India and discovers an old country making itself new. Anand Giridharadas sensed something was afoot as his plane prepared to land in Bombay. An elderly passenger looked at him and said, Were all trying to go that way, pointing to the rear. You, youre going this way. Giridharadas was returning to the land of his ancestors, amid an unlikely economic boom. But he was interested less in its gold rush than in its cultural upheaval, as a new generation has sought to reconcile old traditions with new ambitions. In India Calling, Giridharadas brings to life the people and the dilemmas of India today, as seen through the prism of his migr family history and his childhood memories. He blends the objectivity of the outsider with the intimacy of the insider. The result is India seen at once from within and without. Giridharadas introduces us to entrepreneurs, radicals, industrialists and religious seekers, but, most of all, to Indian families. Through their stories, and his own, he paints an intimate portrait of a country becoming modern while striving to remain itself.

Winner Take All Book Summary : Newspaper headlines and media commentators scream warnings of the impending doom nearly every day—shortages of arable land, clashes over water, and the political Armageddon as global demand for energy in the form of fossil fuels far outstrips any possible supply. The picture painted is bleak, and the possible impact of commodities markets on how we live is far-reaching, but our grasp of the details and the mega shifts in the commodity space remains blurred. There’s so much noise surrounding resource scarcity and China’s emerging dominance in commodities that we risk complacency. Overturning our assumptions, bestselling author Dambisa Moyo charts the commodity dynamics that the world will face over the next several decades, and the implications of China’s rush for resources across all regions of the world, from Africa to Latin America, from North America to Europe to Australia.

How to Win in a Winner Take All World Book Summary : From New York Times bestselling author and senior economic correspondent at The New York Times, how to survive—and thrive—in this increasingly challenging economy. Every ambitious professional is trying to navigate a perilous global economy to do work that is lucrative and satisfying, but some find success while others struggle to get by. In an era of remarkable economic change, how should you navigate your career to increase your chances of landing not only on your feet, but ahead of those around you? In How to Win in a Winner-Take-All World, Neil Irwin, senior economic correspondent at the New York Times, delivers the essential guide to being successful in today’s economy when the very notion of the “job” is shifting and the corporate landscape has become dominated by global firms. He shows that the route to success lies in cultivating the ability to bring multiple specialties together—to become a “glue person” who can ensure people with radically different technical skills work together effectively—and how a winding career path makes you better prepared for today's fast-changing world. Through original data, close analysis, and case studies, Irwin deftly explains the 21st century economic landscape and its implications for ambitious people seeking a lifetime of professional success. Using insights from global giants like Microsoft, Walmart, and Goldman Sachs, and from smaller lesser known organizations like those that make cutting-edge digital effects in Planet of the Apes movies or Jim Beam bourbon, How to Win in a Winner-Take-All World illuminates what it really takes to be on top in this world of technological complexity and global competition.

Winner Take All Book Summary : "Intense and fiercely smart, this volatile love story is both timely and classic." —Maurene Goo, author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love For Nell Becker, life is a competition she needs to win. For Jackson Hart, everyone is a pawn in his own game. They both have everything to lose. Nell wants to succeed at everything—school, sports, life. And victory is sweeter when it means beating Jackson Hart, the rich, privileged, undisputed king of Cedar Woods Prep Academy. Yet no matter how hard she tries, Jackson is somehow one step ahead. They’re a match made in hell, but opposites do attract. Drawn to each other by their rivalry, Nell and Jackson fall into a whirlwind romance that consumes everything in their lives. But when a devastating secret exposes their relationship as just another game, how far will Nell go to win? Visceral and whip-smart, Laurie Devore’s Winner Take All paints an unflinching portrait of obsessive love, toxic competition, and the drive for perfection. An Imprint Book "Intense and fiercely smart, this volatile love story is both timely and classic." —Maurene Goo, author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love "A bold, incisive, timely examination of the high price girls often have to pay for daring to want it all...Clever, romantic, and absolutely unputdownable." —Courtney Summers, author of Cracked up to Be and All the Rage "Darker and weightier than many stories about rivals falling in love, Devore’s second novel draws a blurry line between honest emotions and calculated moves...a hard-hitting message about the pressures placed on teens to succeed." —Publishers Weekly “Heartbreakingly real... an unrelenting, incisive look at one young woman's highly pressurized world." —Kirkus Reviews "A clever plot twist reveals just how quick we are to judge the behavior of girls more harshly than that of boys...A winning choice." —School Library Journal

Winner Take All Book Summary : Over the past thirty years, the United States has lost commanding leads in business after business. We no longer make cameras, TVs, MP3 players, cell phones, or DVD players, and we have become the world’s largest debtor nation. Everyone thinks this is because of cheap labor costs, but in fact Asian leaders have a fundamental and different way of thinking about business. They are playing a different game. If the U.S. wants to regain its competitiveness and preserve its global power, it must play the game as it’s played in the rest of the world. Winner Take All tells us what it takes to be competitive, and how we need to reform our thinking to regain what we have lost. Richard Elkus isn’t afraid to bring a few sacred cows to the slaughter. This is the essential primer for any policy maker, business leader, or general reader interested in knowing how America can regain the economic clout it once had.
