Che cos'hanno in comune un immigrato bulgaro smarrito tra le mille luci di New York, un magnate del futuro che s'innamora perdutamente di una signora in verde del 1939, una neodivorziata disillusa che prende le misure del nuovo vicino troppo interessante per essere vero, un bambino sballottato tra mamma e papà, un giovane attore in overdose promozionale? La colonna sonora delle loro storie: il ticchettio obsoleto e affascinante di una macchina per scrivere. Tom Hanks, che è un grande appassionato e collezionista di questi dinosauri della tecnologia, dedica loro diciassette racconti, tutti diversi, tutti in bilico tra passato e presente, tra realtà e illusione. Che ve ne sembra dell'America? E' la domanda che serpeggia come un basso continuo sotto queste piccole storie di amarezza e ambizione, fatica e desiderio. Con qualche esplosione di pura comicità.

Reclaiming Parkland: Tom Hanks, Vincent Bugliosi, and the JFK Assassina
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 1626365334 | 2013 | 496 pages | 0,6 MB / 1 MB

Reclaiming Parkland details the failed attempt of Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman—cofounder of the production company Playtone—to make Vincent Bugliosi’s mammoth book about the Kennedy assassination, Reclaiming History, into a miniseries. It exposes the questionable origins of Reclaiming History in a dubious mock trial for cable television, in which Bugliosi played the role of an attorney prosecuting Lee Harvey Oswald for murder, and how this formed the basis for the epic tome. Author James DiEugenio details the myriad problems with Bugliosi’s book, and explores the cooperation of the mainstream press in concealing these many faults during the publicity campaign for the book and how this lack of scrutiny led Hanks and Goetzman to purchase the film rights.

Tom Nichols - La conoscenza e i suoi nemici. L'era dell'incompetenza e i rischi per la democrazia
Italian | 2018 | 246 pages | ISBN: 8861053114 | EPUB | 0,4 MB

Il grande sviluppo tecnologico della nostra era ci ha dato accesso a una quantità di informazioni senza precedenti. Il risultato, però, non è stato l'inizio di un nuovo illuminismo, ma il sorgere di un'età dell'incompetenza in cui una sorta di egualitarismo narcisistico e disinformato sembra avere la meglio sul tradizionale sapere consolidato. Medici, professori, professionisti e specialisti di ogni tipo non sono più visti come le figure a cui affidarsi per un parere qualificato, ma come gli odiosi sostenitori di un sapere elitario e fondamentalmente inutile. Che farsene di libri, titoli di studio e anni di praticantato se esiste Wikipedia? Perché leggere saggi, ricerche e giornali quando Facebook mette a nostra disposizione notizie autentiche e di prima mano? L'"apertura" di Internet e la sua apparente libertà sono solo i primi colpevoli contro i quali Tom Nichols punta il dito..

English | February 1st, 2018 | ASIN: B0788F7R2P, ISBN: 1496201833 | 325 pages | EPUB | 1.30 MB

The Black Bruins chronicles the inspirational lives of five African American athletes who faced racial discrimination as teammates at UCLA in the late 1930s. Best known among them was Jackie Robinson, a four‑star athlete for the Bruins who went on to break the color barrier in Major League Baseball and become a leader in the civil rights movement after his retirement. Joining him were Kenny Washington, Woody Strode, Ray Bartlett, and Tom Bradley—the four played starring roles in an era when fewer than a dozen major colleges had black players on their rosters.
