"'I only read it for the articles.' Few modern punch lines are as iconic as this one. It's so widely recognized, the joke itself has become superfluous. Humor aside, the true allure of PLAYBOY are the magazine's underrated photos, specifically the spectacular cover images. Now Hugh Hefner has chosen hundreds of PLAYBOY's breathtaking, innovative covers for this lush retrospective. Images of the stunning women who enticed millions from the fifties through the new millennium are digitally reproduced in full-color. Acclaimed author and long-time PLAYBOY writer Damon Brown explores how the magazine's newsstand decisions indelibly impacted American culture, while ultimate Playmate Pamela Anderson provides an illuminating foreword. While these photos have sometimes been underrated, Playboy's Greatest Covers reveals that the pictures actually tell a fascinating story. Our story. "--

'I like thinking big. I always have. To me it's very simple: If you're going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.' – Donald J. Trump Here is Trump in action – how he runs his business and how he runs his life – as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and changes the face of the New York City skyline. But even a maverick plays by the rules, and Trump has formulated eleven guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest deals; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker's art. And throughout, Trump talks – really talks – about how he does it. Trump: The Art of the Deal is an unguarded look at the mind of a brilliant entrepreneur and an unprecedented education in the practice of deal-making. It's the most streetwise business book there is – and the ultimate read for anyone interested in making money and achieving success, and knowing the man behind the spotlight.

Norman Mailer's The Fight focuses on the 1975 World Heavyweight Boxing Championship in Kinshasa, Zaire. Muhammad Ali met George Foreman in the ring. Foreman's genius employed silence, serenity and cunning. He had never been defeated. His hands were his instrument, and 'he kept them in his pockets the way a hunter lays his rifle back into its velvet case'. Together the two men made boxing history in an explosive meeting of two great minds, two iron wills and monumental egos.
