  • von Bernard Sumner
    29,99 €

    Über Joy Division, Bernard Sumners erste Band, wurden schon unzählige Bücher geschrieben und mehrere Filme gedreht. Über New Order - jene Gruppe, die 1980 aus der legendären Vorgängerinformation entstand, nachdem sich Sänger Ian Curtis das Leben genommen hatte - weiß man hingegen viel weniger. Die Band galt stets als unzugänglich und zurückhaltend und hielt Journalisten gerade in den frühen Jahren gern auf Abstand. Doch jetzt gewährt Sumner selbst einen aufschlussreichen Blick hinter die Kulissen.Natürlich lässt er in seiner Autobiografie auch die Zeit mit Joy Division nicht aus, ebenso wenig wie seine schwierige Kindheit im grauen Norden Englands, der in den 1970er Jahren stark von wirtschaftlichem Abstieg, Arbeitslosigkeit und Verfall geprägt war. Sumner fand seinen eigenen Ausweg aus der Tristesse: die Musik. Joy Division prägten mit nur zwei Alben maßgeblich Genres wie Postpunk, New Wave und Gothic, doch als gerade der große Durchbruch winkte, erhängte sich Curtis am Vorabend der ersten US-Tournee. Doch Sumner und seine Kollegen machten weiter und schlugen eine neue Richtung ein - weg vom Düstersound hin zu lupenreinem Dance. New Order wurden zu den führenden Soundtüftlern im Elektropop, lieferten mit "Blue Monday" eine der meistverkauften Maxisingles aller Zeiten ab und setzten mit ihren Coverideen und Videos neue Maßstäbe im Bereich Pop und Ästhetik.Sumners Mitstreiter bei beiden großen Bands war von Anfang an Bassist Peter Hook, den er noch aus der Schule kannte und so ist diese Autobiografie auch die Geschichte einer langen Freundschaft und ihres unrühmlichen Endes. Hook, der seit 2006 nicht mehr bei New Order spielt, schreibt derzeit selbst an einer Darstellung der Ereignisse und hielt auch in den Medien mit seiner Meinung nicht hinter dem Berg, während Sumner sich stets bedeckt hielt. Jetzt aber erzählt auch er - schonungslos, aber klar erkennbar mit großem Bedauern.Doch es ist nicht nur Sumners eigene Geschichte, die "New Order, Joy Division und ich" so spannend macht. New Order waren eng verbunden mit dem Independent Label Factory, das in den Achtzigern und frühen Neunzigern für unzählige Trends in der englischen Musikszene verantwortlich war; zudem besaßen New Order mit dem Hacienda in Manchester einen der legendärsten Clubs Europas. Sumners Lebensbeichte schildert gleichzeitig den Dance-Boom der Achtziger, den British Summer of Love und den Manchester Rave und erzählt so ein wichtiges Kapitel britischer Popgeschichte.

  • von Walter Isaacson
    26,00 - 27,00 €

    From the author of Steve Jobs and other bestselling biographies, this is the astonishingly intimate story of Elon Musk, the most fascinating and controversial innovator of our era—a rule-breaking visionary who helped to lead the world into the era of electric vehicles, private space exploration, and artificial intelligence. Oh, and took over Twitter. When Elon Musk was a kid in South Africa, he was regularly beaten by bullies. One day a group pushed him down some concrete steps and kicked him until his face was a swollen ball of flesh. He was in the hospital for a week. But the physical scars were minor compared to the emotional ones inflicted by his father, an engineer, rogue, and charismatic fantasist. His father’s impact on his psyche would linger. He developed into a tough yet vulnerable man-child, prone to abrupt Jekyll-and-Hyde mood swings, with an exceedingly high tolerance for risk, a craving for drama, an epic sense of mission, and a maniacal intensity that was callous and at times destructive. At the beginning of 2022—after a year marked by SpaceX launching thirty-one satellites, Tesla selling a million cars, and him becoming the richest man on earth—Musk spoke ruefully about his compulsion to stir up dramas. “I need to shift my mindset away from being in crisis mode, which it has been for about fourteen years now, or arguably most of my life,” he said. It was a wistful comment, not a New Year’s resolution. Even as he said it, he was secretly buying up shares of Twitter, the world’s ultimate playground. Over the years, whenever he was in a dark place, his mind went back to being bullied on the playground. Now he had the chance to own the playground.For two years, Isaacson shadowed Musk, attended his meetings, walked his factories with him, and spent hours interviewing him, his family, friends, coworkers, and adversaries. The result is the revealing inside story, filled with amazing tales of triumphs and turmoil, that addresses the question: are the demons that drive Musk also what it takes to drive innovation and progress?

  • - The Exclusive Biography
    von Walter Isaacson
    13,98 - 26,00 €

    'This is a riveting book, with as much to say about the transformation of modern life in the information age as about its supernaturally gifted and driven subject' - Telegraph Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies,music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written, nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

  • von Joan Didion
    12,00 €

    From one of America's iconic writers, a portrait of a marriage and a life - in good times and bad - that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child. A stunning book of electric honesty and passion.Several days before Christmas 2003, John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion saw their only daughter, Quintana, fall ill. At first they thought it was flu, then pneumonia, then complete sceptic shock. She was put into an induced coma and placed on life support. Days later - the night before New Year's Eve -the Dunnes were just sitting down to dinner after visiting the hospital when John suffered a massive and fatal coronary. In a second, this close, symbiotic partnership of 40 years was over. Four weeks later, their daughter pulled through. Two months after that, arriving at LA airport, she collapsed and underwent six hours of brain surgery at UCLA Medical Centre to relieve a massive hematoma.This powerful book is Didion's 'attempt to make sense of the weeks and then months that cut loose any fixed idea I ever had about death, about illness ... about marriage and children and memory ... about the shallowness of sanity, about life itself'. The result is an exploration of an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage, and a life, in good times and bad.
