Shameless exploitation in pursuit of the common good by Paul Newman( Book )

Publisher's description: In 1978, Paul Newman and A. E. Hotchner decided that rather than just distribute Paul's own salad dressing at Christmas to neighbors, they would offer it to a few local stores. Freewheeling, irreverent entrepreneurs, they conceived of their venture as a great way to poke fun at the mundane method of traditional marketing. Much to their surprise, the dressing was enthusiastically received. What had started as a lark quickly escalated into a full-fledged business, the first company to place all-natural foods in supermarkets. From salad dressing to spaghetti sauce, to popcorn and lemonade, Newman's Own became a major player in the food business. The company's profits were originally donated to medical research, education, and the environment, and eventually went to the creation of the eight Hole in the Wall Gang camps for children with serious illnesses. In these pages Newman and Hotchner recount the picaresque saga of their own nonmanagement adventure. In alternating voices, playing off one another in classic "Odd Couple" style, they describe how they systematically disregarded the advice of experts and relied instead on instinct, imagination, and mostly luck. They write about how they hurdled obstacle after obstacle, share their hilarious misadventures, and reveal their offbeat solutions to conventional problems. Even their approach to charity is decidedly different: every year they give away all the company's profits, empty the coffers, and start over again. The results of this amazing generosity are brought to life in heartwarming stories about the children at their camps. With rare glimpses into their zany style and their compassion for those less fortunate, Newman and Hotchner have written the perfect nonmanagement book, at once playful, informative, and inspirational

"The Color of Money" is a decades-later sequel to "The Hustler." 25 years on, Fast Eddie is now a nattily dressed, silver-haired liquor salesman working the Midwest in his white Cadillac. His neat mustache and smiling deviltry are also employed in his other profession--stake horse to up and coming pool hustlers. One night he sees a kid playing who is so good that Eddie's laboriously buried memories are stirred. Vincent and his girlfriend Carmen have been working minor-league hustles, but with Eddie's help, all three could jump straight into the world of big-money pool, and an upcoming 9-ball tournament in Atlantic City. First, however, Vincent must learn to put the making of money above every other consideration, lure, and temptation in the pool hall. In the process, Eddie and Vincent's relationship erupts into a battle of passion vs. practicality, game theory vs. psychological warfare, where knowledge of human nature is trumps
