Book Short Summary:

Anthony Bourdain's long time director and producer takes readers behind the scenes to reveal the insanity of filming television in some of the most volatile places in the world and what it was like to work with a legend. In the nearly two years since Anthony Bourdain's death, no one else has come close to filling the void he left. His passion for and genuine curiosity about the people and cultures he visited made the world feel smaller and more connected. Despite his affable, confident, and trademark snarky TV persona, the real Tony was intensely private, deeply conflicted about his fame, and an enigma even to those close to him. Tony’s devoted crew knew him best, and no one else had a front-row seat for as long as his director and producer, Tom Vitale. Over the course of more than a decade traveling together, Tony became a boss, a friend, a hero and, sometimes, a tormentor.In the Weeds takes readers behind the scenes to reveal not just the insanity that went into filming in some of the most far-flung and volatile parts of the world, but what Tony was like unedited and off-camera. From the outside, the job looked like an all-expenses-paid adventure to places like Borneo, Vietnam, Iran, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Libya. What happened off-camera was far more interesting than what made it to air. The more things went wrong, the better it was for the show. Fortunately, everything fell apart constantly.

Book Short Summary:

"Master of Disaster: A Behind-The-Scenes Mystery " by Ira Teller, introduces one of contemporary mystery fiction's most unusual protagonists, Irv North, a writer- producer of Motion Picture Movie Trailers (Coming Attractions) who's life and limbs are almost electrocuted, crushed, burned, drowned and buried alive on a movie set, where he is attempting to produce his first "Behind The Scenes documentary - aka Electronic Press kit (EPK). North, desperate to revive a once thriving motion picture marketing career, accepts a Studio assignment for a high energy, low budget, graphic novel inspired movie, "Master Of Disaster," filming in Augusta Georgia and plagued by local dissent, a series of unexplained "accidents" and a sabotage scheme. With the help of Larry and Jeff Knowl, his "Twin Tower" sized EPK cameraman and sound operator, Irv North uncovers a sabotage plot that, if successful, will not only end his new career before it begins, it could cause the deaths of innocent cast and crew members. For the first time, North is faced with putting the lives of others before his own. At first, suspicion falls on a host of Industry types, a bombastic Studio marketing executive, an egotistical film director who keeps upping the ante on the risks the stunt crew must take, a Bollywood star in his first American movie, who thinks he's immortal, his sexy firebrand assistant/ lover, who starts a riot with the Augusta locals and a publicist, who puts out PR fires and maybe starts them. In the end, it is discovered... "Master Of Disaster" is based on the author's personal experiences on movie sets and in the movie business. His very first "Behind-The-Scenes" documentary production was on the "accident" plagued movie, "The Crow," where he was the last person to interview rising star Brandon Lee, just days before the young actor's tragic, freak and startling death during filming. As Creative Director of his own Marketing Company, Ira Teller has earned many Industry awards for his innovative and successful Movie Ad Campaigns. Newsweek Magazine built an entire article around his copy line: "If this one doesn't scare you, you're already dead " His marketing credentials include producing more than 75 Behind-The-Scenes Electronic Press kits (EPKs) and documentaries, among them "Pulp Fiction," "Kiss The Girls," "Highlander 2,"Imax "Mission To Mir."and "The Crow," which became the inspiration for his first novel, "Master Of Disaster." His play " In Place Of Thought" was produced Off Broadway and his screenplay, "Silent Night, Bloody Night" was produced by Canon Films and has become a late night TV Horror cult classic; he has also been a marketing consultant for the Sundance Institute and an instructor at UCLA Extension.

Book Short Summary:

Two-time Peabody Award-winning writer and producer Ira Rosen reveals the intimate, untold stories of his decades at America’s most iconic news show. It’s a 60 Minutes story on 60 Minutes itself. When producer Ira Rosen walked into the 60 Minutes offices in June 1980, he knew he was about to enter television history. His career catapulted him to the heights of TV journalism, breaking some of the most important stories in TV news. But behind the scenes was a war room of clashing producers, anchors, and the most formidable 60 Minutes figure: legendary correspondent Mike Wallace. Based on decades of access and experience, Ira Rosen takes readers behind closed doors to offer an incisive look at the show that invented TV investigative journalism. With surprising humor, charm, and an eye for colorful detail, Rosen delivers an authoritative account of the unforgettable personalities that battled for prestige, credit, and the desire to scoop everyone else in the game. As one of Mike Wallace’s top producers, Rosen reveals the interview secrets that made Wallace’s work legendary, and the flaring temper that made him infamous. Later, as senior producer of ABC News Primetime Live and 20/20, Rosen exposes the competitive environment among famous colleagues like Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters, and the power plays between correspondents Chris Wallace, Anderson Cooper, and Chris Cuomo. A master class in how TV news is made, Rosen shows readers how 60 Minutes puts together a story when sources are explosive, unreliable, and even dangerous. From unearthing shocking revelations from inside the Trump White House, to an outrageous proposition from Ghislaine Maxwell, to interviewing gangsters Joe Bonanno and John Gotti Jr., Ira Rosen was behind the scenes of some of 60 Minutes' most sensational stories. Highly entertaining, dishy, and unforgettable, Ticking Clock is a never-before-told account of the most successful news show in American history.

Book Short Summary:

The woman who knows him the best describes the life of - and life with - Australia's most beloved playwright. David Williamson has been in the public gaze for almost forty years. Plays such as Don's Party, The Removalists, The Club and Emerald City - and films such as Gallipoli - have made him a national treasure. Equally visible on the political stage, Williamson has been famously anti-Vietnam and pro-Whitlam, the confidant of Paul Keating and scourge of John Howard. Paradoxically, though, Williamson's private life has been even more public. He has made his plays out of it. No one knows that better than Kristin, his wife of thirty-five years. In this book she tells us what has gone on behind the scenes. The Williamsons have lived at the heart of their times: from the radical Carlton scene of the 1960s, through the sexual experimentation of the 1970s, to the Emerald City of the 1980s and 1990s, and now as the Queensland seachangers of the new century. Kristen chronicles the events and people that inspired the plays, and tells the backstage stories, from La Mama to Madonna. But she also writes frankly about meeting David and the two divorces that ensued, the anxieties and rewards of raising a blended family, the period of their open marriage, and the challenge of being a working mother while playing peacemaker to Australia's most literary brawler. The result is a picture of remarkable intimacy, vividness and honesty, the portrait not only of a writer, but of a family and a marriage.

Book Short Summary:

After Joshua’s conquest of the Promised Land of Canaan it was substantially under the control of the Israelites. The Israelites moved into their Promised Land, settling-in and raising families in their land that was their promised gift from Yahweh, the God of Israel. David’s ancestors, such as his great-great-grandparents Rahab and Salmon, lived during the notable time of Joshua’s armies obtaining control of the land of Canaan. Both Rahab and Salmon were instrumental in the conquest of Jericho, leading to Joshua’s successful take-over from the indigenous groups of Canaanites that occupied the land. Even though Rahab was a Canaanite prostitute, she holds honor with the Israelite people, as she was instrumental in Joshua’s army’s success. Working with the love of the Lord in her heart, Rahab protected the spies that came to scout out the ‘impenetrable’ city of Jericho. Because of Rahab’s courage to stand with the Israelites, Joshua and his men were able to conquer the city of Jericho and then move forward with future successes in Canaan. Eventually some years later after Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, rule over the land evolved into a period of time known as the ‘Judges’. This era received its name due to the rule by as a series of judges who were chosen by God to govern His people. David’s great-grandparents, Ruth and Boaz lived in Bethlehem during this period of time, and were known for their extreme faith and dedication to the Lord. During the time of settling the Promised Land, Israel did not have friendly neighbors around its borders and was surrounded by many pagan nations. Even within the Promised Land, pockets of indigenous pagan Canaanites still existed in and among the Israelites who had settled after Joshua’s conquest. With this ‘incomplete conquering’ of Canaan and its inhabitants, the Israelites were exposed to many cultures, all who worshipped pagan entities. Many Israelites intermarried with the native pagan Canaanites, even though this was against God’s commandments. As a result of this intermarriage, many Israelites adopted the Canaanite pagan culture and religion. This eventually led to many of the Israelites to turn away from God and to become idolatrous, pagan worshippers in order to ‘fit in’ with the people among them. The pagan cultures surrounding the Israelites were wealthy and powerful. This especially seemed intriguing to the Israelites who had recently served as slaves in Egypt, prior to their exodus to the Promised Land under the leadership of Moses and Joshua. The Israelites therefore tended to admire the other nations and cultures around them as these pagan cultures flourished with decadence and power. Seeing that these surrounding nations were governed by kings who exuded prestige and opulence, the Israelites came to envy their way of life. The period of Judges was characterized by the Israelites’ disobedience to God. The era described in the book of Judges had the typical, cyclical pattern of the Israelite people’s disobedience in their turning away from God, which resulted in God delivering them into the hands of their enemies who surrounded them. The oppression that resulted then caused people to repent and temporarily turn back to God, but only for a while, as soon they would again become disobedient. These cycles of turning away from the Lord, then back to Him again when oppression overcame them, is referred to as Deuteronomic cycles. This cyclic pattern was predicted and warned about in the Book of Deuteronomy. During this period of time, God’s chosen judges attempted to govern and lead His people in order to avoid the havoc that resulted from the peoples’ disobedience. However, as soon as a Judge would die, the people would again become disobedient and as a result turned further away from the Lord. Being governed by Judges was not an ideal situation as far as the Israelites were concerned, and the people longed for a different kind of leader. Rebellious and envying other nations, the Israelite people turned from the Lord and longed for a monarchy. The Israelite people desperately wanted a king to rule over them. Samuel was the last in a long line of the Judges, and also served as God’s prophet to listen to His people. As Samuel became older, the people of Israel asked Samuel to give them a king to replace him to rule over them so that they could be similar to the other nations encompassing their borders. Even though God knew that this would eventually be destructive to the nation of Israel, He complied with the people’s wish to be governed by a human king.

Book Short Summary:

The inside story of the U.S.-Chinese superpower conflict playing out behind the scenes of today’s movie industry, from the leading media scholar China surpassed North America to become the world ’s largest movie market in 2020. Formerly the focus of exotic fascination in the golden age of Hollywood, today the Chinese are a make-or-break audience for Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. And movies are now an essential part of China’s global “soft power” strategy: a Chinese real estate tycoon, who until recently was the major shareholder of the AMC theater chain, built the world’s largest film production facility. Behind the curtains, as this brilliant new book reveals, movies have become one of the biggest areas of competition between the world’s two remaining superpowers. Will Hollywood be eclipsed by its Chinese counterpart? No author is better positioned to untangle this riddle than Ying Zhu, a leading expert on Chinese film and media. In fascinating vignettes, Hollywood in China unravels the century-long relationship between Hollywood and China for the first time. Blending cultural history, business, and international relations, Hollywood in China charts multiple power dynamics and teases out how competing political and economic interests as well as cultural values are manifested in the art and artifice of filmmaking on a global scale, and with global ramifications. The book is an inside look at the intense business and political maneuvering that is shaping the movies and the U.S.-China relationship itself—revealing a headlines-grabbing conflict that is playing out not only on the high seas, but on the silver screen.

Book Short Summary:

Federico Fellini is considered one of the greatest cinematic geniuses of our time, but his films were not produced in isolation. Instead, they are the results of collaborations with some of the greatest scriptwriters of twentieth-century Italy. Inspiring Fellini re-examines the filmmaker’s oeuvre, taking into consideration the considerable influence of his collaborations with writers and intellectuals including Pier Paolo Pasolini, Ennio Flaiano, Tullio Pinelli, and Andrea Zanzotto. Author Federico Pacchioni provides a portrait of Fellini that is more complex than one of the stereotypical solitary genius, as he has been portrayed by Fellini criticism in the past. Pacchioni explores the dynamics of Fellini’s cinematic collaborations through analyses of the writers’ independently produced works, their contributions to the conceptualization of the films, and their conversations with Fellini himself, found in public and private archival sources. This book is an invaluable resource in the effort to understand the genesis of Fellini’s artistic development.

Book Short Summary:

"Behind the Scenes" is both a slave narrative and a portrait of the First Family, especially Mary Todd Lincoln, and is considered controversial for breaking privacy about them. It was also her claim as a businesswoman to be part of the new mixed-race, middle-class that was visible among the leadership of the black community. Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley (1818 – 1907) was a former slave who became a successful seamstress, civil activist, and author in Washington, DC. She was best known as the personal modiste and confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln, the First Lady. She created an independent business in the capital based on clients who were the wives of the government elite. Among them were Varina Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis; and Mary Anna Custis Lee, wife of Robert E. Lee.

Book Short Summary:

What does a high practitioner of the military art and sciences, a successful commander and trainer of men, and an outstanding general staff officer find in his thirty-two years of service and two wars? First, that political guidance and military strategic thinking are virtually absent in our affairs of the state. Higher direction of war is well below the poverty line. Singh autopsies the 1965 war as the main example of this poverty. Startlingly, he shows that when the war was joined, a fair proportion of field commanders who failed had already been found wanting in the eastern theatre in 1962. Higher direction was tentative and ad hoc at the Army HQ level. At the theatre level, forward command was being exercised by the theatre commander at battalion levels, who was unable and unwilling to read the big picture and act on wide open operational possibilities being presented on a plate by the enemy. This book lays to rest many operational ghosts of 1965.

Book Short Summary:

This book examines the working procedures of parliamentary party groups within specialised committees - the backstage but primary means for MPs to influence policy. It explains which MPs specialise in particular policy areas, how they make policy choices in committees, and, subsequently, how these individual decisions are aggregated and ‘unified’ within and via parliamentary party groups. In doing so, the book expertly reveals the internal working procedures of parliaments and the role of individual MPs vis-á-vis the parliamentary party group leadership. Based on an analysis of more than 3,000 committee assignments and over 100 in-depth interviews with MPs, it shows that individual experts in committees have a central role and decision-making power which is more varied and decentralised from the leadership than commonly assumed. It demonstrates that most policy decisions are prepared bottom-up rather than dictated top-down and that parliamentary party groups are not strictly hierarchical organisations dominated by elites. This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of legislative and parliamentary studies, representative democracy, comparative politics, and journalists and practitioners within parliaments.

Book Short Summary:

Conflict is a persistent fact of organizational life. Much of it, however, rarely becomes public and instead is expressed `behind the scenes' in such forms as avoidance, toleration, gossip and vengence. This book takes examples from a number of organizational settings and makes the case that far from being an occasional occurrence, conflict is embedded in their very fabric. The authors go on to illustrate the frequency of conflict, show how conflicts are actually handled and suggest that these conflicts can be better managed for organizational effectiveness.

Book Short Summary:

From the Tony Award and Laurence Olivier Award-winning former director of London's National Theatre--this is a fascinating, candid, eloquent memoir about his career directing theater, producing films and opera, and working closely with some of the world's most celebrated actors. The list of Nicholas Hytner's accomplishments is long and distinguished: as Artistic Director of London's National Theatre from 2003-2015, he directed and produced a great number of their most popular and memorable plays and musicals, many of which have come to Broadway: Carousel, Richard Bean's One Man, Two Guvnors, David Hare's Stuff Happens among them. He directed both the London and Broadway productions of Miss Saigon, each of which ran for ten years. He directed Alan Bennett's The Madness of George III on both stage and screen. In short: He is one of today's most successful and admired theatrical impresarios. In Balancing Acts, Hytner gives us a detailed behind-the-scenes look at his creative process. From reviving classic musicals and mastering Shakespeare to commissioning new plays, he shows theater making to be a necessarily collaborative exercise, and he writes insightfully about the actors and playwrights he's worked with: Derek Jacobi, Richard Griffiths, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Harold Pinter, and Tom Stoppard among them. With a cultural range that spans from The Mikado to The Lady in the Van, Balancing Acts is not only a memoir but a gathering of illuminating notes on the art of directing and a thoughtful meditation on the purpose of theater.
