Ignorance, confidence, and filthy rich friends : the business adventures of Mark Twain, chronic speculator and entrepreneur by Peter Krass( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ignorance, Confidence, and Filthy Rich Friends illuminates this little-known side of an American icon in an engaging and informative narrative that details a business career full of adventure, ambition, and insightful instruction. Author Peter Krass examines all the critical events and circumstances that shaped Twain's "Robber Baron" perspective on money and business. He reveals how, while often torn between being an enlightened man of letters and a materialistic capitalist, Twain was motivated by a relentless desire to accumulate great wealth. Krass traces the source of this sometimes unhealthy compulsion to the writer's boyhood-when he developed an irrational fear of poverty after his father's business ventures failed. At times as entertaining and dramatic as one of Twain's own works, this fascinating book tells how the legendary writer and humorist made millions in today's dollars publishing the memoirs of General Ulysses S. Grant. It details his escapades as a venture capitalist-one who made significant investments in some twenty start-up firms-and as a Wall Street investor with a sizable stock portfolio. It also tells how, often at the expense of his book projects, he promoted his own inventions, including a children's game he patented in 1885 and numerous other gadgets for everyday use

Portrait of war : the U.S. Army's first combat artists and the doughboys' experience in WWI by Peter Krass( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Eight individuals witnessed more of the American fighting experience during World War I than any other U.S. participant, military or civilian. Commissioned as captains in the American Expeditionary Force (AEF), these brave men - known as the AEF's Eight - risked their lives roaming through occupied zones, blood-soaked battlefields, and the forward trenches to complete a groundbreaking mission: they were the first artist-soldiers to be recruited through official government channels to make a historical record of war." "Portrait of War tells the gripping story of these artist-soldiers for the first time. Drawing upon the graphic letters, diaries, and memoirs the men kept as well as the interviews they conducted, Peter Krass presents a completely different view of the Great War as seen through the eyes of these chosen few, who were determined to capture "the shock and loss and bitterness and blood of it.""--BOOK JACKET
