Double bill of films set in India. In 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011), John Madden directs an all-star cast of Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup and Tom Wilkinson as a group of mature Brits who travel to India looking for a sunnier climate in which to retire. Despite its glossy publicity campaign, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful turns out to be rather different from the refurbished luxury hotel advertised in the brochures. However, as the previously lonely people grow closer, the hotel soon begins to reveal some unexpected charms of its own. 'Life of Pi' (2012) is an Academy Award-winning fantasy adventure based on Yann Martel's Booker Prize-winning novel. Suraj Sharma stars as Pi Patel, a 16-year-old zookeeper's son from Pondicherry who finds himself stranded on a small boat in the Pacific Ocean in the company of a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan and a Bengal tiger following the shipwreck of the freighter on which he and his family were sailing for Canada. Over the course of several months Pi manages to survive on the meagre supplies of food and water he finds on the boat, and also takes up fishing, while in his half-delirious state he muses on various aspects of animal behaviour, religion and the meaning of life.

Inspired by the life of James Matthew Barrie, author of the children's classic Peter Pan, this semi-biographical period drama stars Johnny Depp as the turn-of-the-century playwright and novelist. Set in London in 1904, the film follows Barrie's creative struggle to bring Peter Pan to the stage, from his first inspiration for the story up until the play's premiere at the Duke of York Theatre: a night that would change not only Barrie's own life, but the lives of everyone close to him. Meanwhile, he plays a continuing role in the lives of the four children who inspired the story. Kate Winslet, Dustin Hoffman and Julie Christie co-star.

Jeff Immelt and the New GE Way: Innovation, Transformation and Winning in the 21st Century (Hardcover, Ed): David Magee Jeff Immelt and the New GE Way: Innovation, Transformation and Winning in the 21st Century (Hardcover, Ed)

When it was announced in late 2000 that Jeff Immelt would be taking the helm of GE, some skeptics were quick to voice their reservations about the future of the company after Jack Welch. Not only were Welch's shoes particularly large ones to fill, but the economy was dallying with recession, China and India were taking their first giant steps into the global economy, and just four days into Immelt's tenure came the biggest game changer of all: 9/11.

The hand-wringing, it turned out, was all for nought. During Immelt's first seven years on the job, GE's revenues increased by more than 60%, its profits doubled, and the company solidified its status as the world leader in technological innovation.

Written with the full cooperation of Immelt and GE senior executives, "Jeff Immelt and the New GE Way" tells the amazing story of how Immelt defied the skeptics and successfully reengineered one of the world's oldest and largest global conglomerates to meet the challenges of the 21st century. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn how it's done from a master, detailing the trendsetting innovations Immelt pioneered that have made his vision a reality, including: Mandating non-stop, company-wide innovation Making customers partners in growth through Customer Dreaming Sessions Developing region-specific products and services Partnering with the most promising new-technology upstarts Going green with a hugely successful Ecomagination initiative Fostering a non-stop learning environment

The critics were right: Jeff Immelt is no Jack Welch. Just as Welch embodied corporate leadership for the closing decades of the 20th century, Immelt has come to personify the 21st century CEO. As "Esquire" magazine said when it named him one of The 75 Most Important People of the 21st Century: "The day will come, when GE chairman and CEO, Jeff Immelt, will be viewed as the prototypical leader for the new century."

An inside look at the company that defined American industry and the man who runs it
Ford Tough is the contemporary story of a company fighting to position itself in a new era of business, with the founder's visionary great-grandson as the leader of the new Ford Motor Company.
Bill Ford Jr. is the first Ford family member to run the company since 1979. A self-professed environmentalist and by all accounts a "nice guy," he might not seem the most obvious choice for a hard-nosed corporate leader. But his vision of the company's future, his genuine care for his employees, his well-timed toughness, and his obvious concern for the long-term well-being of Ford Motor Company have proven to be essential characteristics for the leader of America's most famous brand.
Ford watched the company decline beginning in 1999 as then-CEO Jacques Nasser tried to remake the automaker into a new economy business. When the plan did not work, Ford stepped in to rebuild the automaker and restore faith from employees, consumers, and dealers. He guided Ford Motor Company through its troubled times and a successful centennial celebration.
With its massive size and a troubled economy, leading Ford Motor Company into the twenty-first century will be no easy task. Ford Tough looks at the modern rebuilding and the future of a company that defines American know-how and American culture.

Away from the game and the players for which it was crafted, the baseball bat is a sleek but humble creation. Yet in the hands of batters both young and old who have been stepping to the plate on diamonds around the world for more than a century, the bat is a powerful tool, capable of yielding lasting memories or making legends of a lifetime. And no bat has had more impact on baseball and the players of the game than Louisville Slugger, the tool of the trade used by millions--from the major leagues to college and youth leagues. From the first hand-crafted wooden bat Bud Hillcrich made (in his father's woodworking shop) for professional player Pete Browning in 1884 to bats swung by Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb years ago and Lance Berkman and Alex Rodriguez today, Louisville Slugger has contributed to the evolution and popularity of America's game like few others. Greats like former major-league batting champion George Brett maintained an almost personal relationship with their specially made Louisville Slugger bats while young players fondly recall the emotional purchase and power of a new Louisville Slugger TPX. Still a family-owned American company based in Louisville, Kentucky, Hillerich and Brads-by's Louisville Slugger is both an icon and an enigma after 125 years. As a piece of sporting equipment that has changed how the game is played over a century, yielding more power and punch with each evolutionary design, the Louisville Slugger has consistently delivered to both players and fans beyond functionality. In accordance with Louisville Slugger's 125th anniversary, the complete history of the bat, its impact on the game, and the ongoing story of Hillerich and Bradsby's family business istold in these pages. Blending firsthand stories from former and current major leaguers with details from more than 100 years of craftsmanship and contribution, this comprehensive history of baseball's bat and its impact on America's game is a must-have and must-read for anyone who has ever stood at the plate waiting on a pitch--or watched as a fan--hoping for a miracle.

Playing to Win - Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys (Hardcover): David Magee Playing to Win - Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys (Hardcover)
David Magee
R456 R414 Discovery Miles 4 140 Save R42 (9%) Special order

When Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys franchise in 1989, it was a struggling, last-place team in a mediocre league. Losing millions in operations with the continued prospect of diminished revenue, and coming off a three-win season under legendary coach Tom Landry, "America's Team" had fallen far from its pinnacle of success in the 1970s and early 1980s. The NFL was not faring much better, either. Television networks threatened to pay less for broadcast rights amid money-losing contracts while fans stayed away in droves, leaving thousands of seats empty. Despite threats on his life due to controversial moves like firing Landry and Jimmy Johnson, Jones completely turned the franchise around, winning three Super Bowls and enriching not only the value of the franchise (now the most valuable in all of pro sports) but the entire league with record-setting television contracts. Oh, and by the way, he built a new $1.2 billion stadium. Parlaying unrestricted access into a compelling behind-the-scenes narrative, author David Magee reveals football vignettes and insightful management morsels from arguably the most colorful and influential owner in all of professional sports. More than biography, Playing to Win is the story of an epic struggle to be the best on the biggest sports stage in the world. Jones is often charming, but can also be overbearing, resulting in a love/hate relationship with fans like no professional team owner since football's Al Davis in the 1960s or baseball's George Steinbrenner in the 1970s. Voted "Enemy No. 1" in three states by Sports Illustrated one year and Sportsman of the Year by The Dallas Morning News in another, the owner thrives on attention and occasionalcontroversy. But Playing to Win shows above all else that an insatiable desire to win is what drives Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys, and ultimately, the NFL.
