Barbarians in the Boardroom: Activist Investors & the Battle for Control of the World's Most Powerful Companies
by Owen Walker
Activist investors have sent shockwaves through corporations in recent years, personally targeting directors and executives at some of the world’s largest companies. No longer satisfied with operating on the fringes of business, they are now a firm fixture in the boardroom.
Up to a quarter of public companies could be targeted by activist campaigns in the coming years, with directors and executives at those corporations threatened with losing their jobs. The trend, which began in corporate America, has spread to the UK, Europe and Asia, taking in several high profile companies.
Barbarians in the Boardroom tells a compelling story of boardroom bust ups, dumped CEOs triumphant activists and pared back companies. It reveals real-life examples and interviews with executives and investors to explain why and how activist investors have managed to storm Wall Street and tear down City citadels. Owen Walker provides an insight into the way activists think, how they decide to target a company and how directors and executives could possibly work with them rather than against them.

Hooked: Why cute sells...and other marketing magic that we just can't resist

Preston Tucker and His Battle to Build the Car of Tomorrow
by Steve Lehto and Jay Leno
After World War II, the American automobile industry was reeling. Having spent years building tanks and airplanes for the army, the car companies would need years more to retool their production to meet the demands of the American public, for whom they had not made any cars since 1942.
And then in stepped Preston Tucker. This salesman extraordinaire from Ypsilanti, Michigan, had built race cars before the war, and had designed prototypes for the military during it. Now, gathering a group of brilliant automotive designers, engineers, and promoters, he announced the creation of a revolutionary new car: the Tucker '48, the first car in almost a decade to be built fresh from the ground up. Tucker's car would include ingenious advances in design and engineering that other car companies could not match. With a rear engine, rear-wheel drive, a safety-glass windshielf that would pop out in case of an accident, a padded dashboard, independent suspension, and automatic transmission, it would be more attractive and aerodynamic—and safer—than any other car on the road.
But as the public eagerly awaited Tucker's car of tomorrow, powerful forces in Washington were trying to bring him down. An SEC commissioner with close ties to Detroit's Big Three automakers deliberately leaked information about an investigation the agency was conducting, suggesting that Tucker was bilking investors with a massive fraud scheme. Headlines accused him a perpetrating a hoax and claimed that his cars weren't real and his factory was a sham.
In fact, the Tucker '48 sedan was genuine, and everyone who saw it was impressed by what this upstart carmaker had achieved. But the SEC's investigation had compounded the company's financial problems and management conflicts, and a superior product was not enough to keep Tucker's dream afloat.
Here, Steve Lehto tackles the story of Tucker's amazing rise and tragic fall, relying on a huge trove of documents that has been used by no other writer to date. It is the first comprehensive, authoritative account of Tucker's magnificent car and his battles with the government. And in this book, Lehto finally answers the questions automobile aficionados have wondered about for decades: Exactly how and why was the production of such an innovative car killed?

Success in the Stock Market: Using the power of the Internet
by Dermod Sweeney
‘A private investor, typically operating alone, will inevitably face unfamiliar challenges in devising, implementing and refining their investment strategy. In the financial market jungle, a seasoned guide can help to eliminate naïve errors and map alternative routes to a desired investment goal. “Success in the Stock Market” is such a guide, comprehensive in its content, yet transparent and accessible in style, the book provides a route map from the fundamental underpinnings of stock markets, building logically through funds, futures and share selection to disciplined portfolio management. Even a sophisticated operator will benefit from Dermod Sweeney’s extensive experience as a successful private investor.’
Stock markets around the world are involved with staggering amounts of money – around US$70tn – and so they attract the attentions of a great many clever and ambitious people. Combine this with the vagaries of geopolitics and the often rapidly changing fortunes of companies – resulting in severe volatility – and the stock market becomes a frightening place for many people. Share price movements of 30% or more in one day are not unusual. However, a good understanding of how markets behave and how to manage your investment risk should enable you to succeed as an investor.
Stock markets have lost more than half their value twice in the last 20 years – in 2001 and in 2008 – so it is not surprising that the number of retail investors participating in the markets has declined substantially. Could the markets lose half their value again? It’s unlikely but certainly not impossible. Important lessons are drawn from these crashes.
The Internet has now empowered retail investors like never before. They can buy and sell shares cheaply online, supported by virtually unlimited and easily accessible information on companies and the environments in which they operate. Numerous informative websites are cited – providing investor tools, advice, and information flows which are invaluable if you know how to filter and interpret them.
Hope you find a couple of these books of interest. Happy reading!!!
