A revised edition of the tell-all biography of the businessman turned outsider artist In this no-holds-barred biography of controversial artist Matt Lamb, Richard Speer takes readers on an all-access tour of Lamb's life and times. With true insider access that includes interviews with family and friends and Lamb's own personal archives, the book offers a massively compelling look at the artist's life.

Whether that diagnosis was accurate or not, it was the basis for a massive personal transformation, from wealthy but little-known businessman to an artist hailed as the heir of Pablo Picasso. Thumbing his nose at the art establishment that dismissed his work and wealth as the antithesis of starving-artist chic, Lamb dedicated his work to world peace and redefined the art world in the process. Revised to cover the years leading up to the artist's death in early 2012 Tells the story of a truly unique character who succeed spectacularly in the wildly different worlds of business and art This book offers an insider's look at the art world's ultimate «outside insider» For those who relish tales of larger-than-life personalities who break the mold, Matt Lamb: The Art of Success is a thrilling and enlightening biography of an unforgettable personality.

Paul  Irving The Upside of Aging. How Long Life Is Changing the World of Health, Work, Innovation, Policy and Purpose zxz re life in a different world from
The Upside of Aging: How Long Life Is Changing the World of Health, Work, Innovation, Policy and Purpose explores a titanic shift that will alter every aspect of human existence, from the jobs we hold to the products we buy to the medical care we receive – an aging revolution underway across America and the world. Moving beyond the stereotypes of dependency and decline that have defined older age, The Upside of Aging reveals the vast opportunity and potential of this aging phenomenon, despite significant policy and societal challenges that must be addressed. The book’s chapter authors, all prominent thought-leaders, point to a reinvention and reimagination of our older years that have critical implications for people of all ages. With a positive call to action, the book illuminates the upside for health and wellness, work and volunteerism, economic growth, innovation and education. The authors, like the baby boom generation itself, posit new ways of thinking about aging, as longevity and declining birthrates put the world on track for a mature population of unprecedented size and significance. Among topics they examine are: The emotional intelligence and qualities of the aging brain that science is uncovering, “senior moments” notwithstanding. The new worlds of genomics, medicine and technology that are revolutionizing health care and wellness. The aging population’s massive impact on global markets, with enormous profit potential from an explosion in products and services geared toward mature consumers. New education paradigms to meet the needs and aspirations of older people, and to capitalize on their talents. The benefits that aging workers and entrepreneurs bring to companies, and the crucial role of older people in philanthropy and society. Tools and policies to facilitate financial security for longer and more purposeful lives. Infrastructure and housing changes to create livable cities for all ages, enabling “aging in place” and continuing civic contribution from millions of older adults. The opportunities and potential for intergenerational engagement and collaboration. The Upside of Aging defines a future that differs profoundly from the retirement dreams of our parents and grandparents, one that holds promise and power and bears the stamp of a generation that has changed every stage of life through which it has moved.

Toulouse-Lautrec & His World zxz re life in a different world from
The Belle Еpoque (Beautiful Era), which dates from the late nineteenth century to the start of World War I, was an incredible period of creative and scientific activity. Until his death in 1901 at the age of 36, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was one of its leading names along with poets and writers such as Guy de Maupassant and Emile Zola. He exhibited with Vincent Van Gogh and was a friend of Oscar Wilde whom he met during his time in London. Creating literally thousands of artworks during his short life, the images that Toulouse-Lautrec created were evocative of the mood of that time. His drawings and lithographs were often playful or satirical, but captured the essence of his subject. This book brings together over 170 images. In addition, there are documentary images from the period depicting life in fin de siеcle Paris and selected cities around the world. Clothing, architecture and images of street life are featured and where possible photographs of the people Toulouse-Lautrec featured in his works such as Aristide Bruant. На испанском, французском и немецком языках.
