1. In the News 2. Guy Lawson talked about his book Arms and the Dudes: How Three Stoners from Miami Beach Became the Most Unlikely Gunrunners in History, in which he tells the story of Efraim Diveroli, a Miami based arms dealer who won numerous Pentagon contracts during the early years of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Diveroli and two of his friends, all in their early twenties, eventually won a $300 million contract to supply, in part, 100 million rounds of AK-47 ammo to the U.S. military to be used by the Afghan National Army and police in their fight against the Taliban. In an effort to maximize his profit, Diveroli used Chinese ammo to fulfill the contract, a violation of U.S. law. After he was found out, he was indicted on fraud charges and was sent to prison 3.

Business futurist Robert Tercek says in his upcoming book Vaporized: Solid Strategies for Success in a Dematerialized World, "Digital technology will transform every sector and economic system on the planet in almost unimaginable ways."
Big data analytics are at the core of the transformation, and in many cases the means to succeed throughout that transformation. Tercek, who has provided strategic insight to Turner Broadcasting, PBS, and other digital firms, will join All Analytics Radio on Tuesday, August 18, at 2 pm EDT to discuss the role of analytics in the digital transformation.
In his book, due for release in September, Tercek explores the role that big data is playing, and how it can be an asset or a liability, how companies can optimize the use of apps, and how the Internet of Things will impact consumers.

Today's guest is David Meltzer. In his early 20s, David Meltzer was at the top of his game in the business world and lecturing around the globe. But something was missing, and the multimillionaire went on a rapid downward spiral that ended in bankruptcy. It was only then that David realized, in order to revive and thrive, he needed to blend spirituality with business. He started to develop his newfound life and business outlook as CEO to sports super agent Leigh Steinberg, where he, along with Leigh, and Warren Moon, negotiated over $2 Billion in sports and entertainment contracts. In addition to athlete representation, LSSE served as creative and technical consultants on movie and television projects such as: Jerry Maguire, Any Given Sunday, For The Love Of The Game, HBO’s Arli$$.The common perception of successful sports agents is an aggressive-to-be-effective persona that is as powerful at negotiating as their athletes are at sports.
Connecting to goodness seems an unlikely goal in either sports agenting or sports marketing, but it is the best un-kept secret of one of the best sports agents in the business. David is now the CEO at Sports 1 Marketing, a Warren Moon Enterprise, and was former CEO to sports super agent Leigh Steinberg. In the making, losing, and remaking of millions in sports agenting and marketing, David Meltzer has indeed become all about connecting to goodness as a tool for actual and worthwhile success in business and in life. Before he found the connection he made and lost millions. Now enormously successful, he never forgets the value of that connection – and he is here today to discuss it with us.

Dale Wiley "Sabotage":
Every hour explosions rock America. There is no rhyme or reason to where they appear: big cities, small towns, even rural backroads. The sinister message that suddenly appears on America's computer screens is clear: No one is safe:
Not disgraced FBI agent Grant, awaiting his call back to the big time;
Not rapper Pal Joey, an international sensation;
Not savvy, stunning beauty Caitlin, the ultimate Sin City party girl;
Not even Naseem, the would-be martyr who helped plan the attacks and now finds himself double-crossed.
As an unhinged mastermind paralyzes a nation, these unlikely heroes must put aside their pasts and work together to stop him before more hours bring more disasters.
All roads lead to Las Vegas, where the plan begins to unravel. Can four people, united only by their hatred of this singular villain, finally stop Sabotage?
Susan Slater: "Hair of the Dog":
So simple. Five dogs dead by smoke inhalation, bagged, tagged, and cremated. Papers all in order. Ashes in specialty urns on the desk of Dixie Halifax, track and casino co-owner. In jail, a young employee charged with arson to cover a murder he's blamed for committing.
Then the body of kennel owner Jackson Sanchez is found face down in a pool of blood, a knife stuck in his back. But Sanchez didn’t die from a knife wound. Someone has carved “thief” on his forehead. The blood pooled underneath his body isn’t his. Should Dan be looking for a second corpse? And the one man who can answer questions, the track vet, dies in a motorcycle accident.

Readers, you'll definitely want to tune in this Thursday, August 6th at 6pm EST! My guest will be National Bestselling, and Award-Winning Author, Victoria Christopher Murray. Even as she was taking an unlikely path to her destination, Victoria Christopher Murray always knew she would become an author. In fact, after spending ten years in Corporate America, she never lost the dream to write and when the “bug” hit her again in 1997, she answered the call. Her latest novel, Stand Your Ground, centers on two women forced to grapple with their faith and their belief in the justice system when they become involved in a high-stakes murder trial.
A black teenage boy is dead. A white man shot him. Was he standing his ground or was it murder?
Janice Johnson is living every black mother’s nightmare. Her seventeen-year-old son was murdered and the shooter has not been arrested. Can the D.A. and the police be trusted to investigate and do the right thing? Should Janice take advantage of the public outcry and join her husband alongside the angry protestors who are out for revenge?
Meredith Spencer is married to the man accused of the killing and she sees her husband and the situation with far more clarity than anyone realizes. What she knows could blow the case wide open, but what will that mean for her life and that of her son? Will she have the courage to come forward in time so that justice can be done?
#1 national bestselling and award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray’s Stand Your Ground is a pulse-pounding meditation on race, motherhood, marriage, and vigilante justice that will have readers spellbound until its shocking end.
Console Wars author Blake J Harris Live with Scott Cluthe
NPR: Best book of the Year !
Seth Rogen from the forward: "The "Console Wars" between Nintendo and Sega is what began a series of events that will lead to the end of humanity as we know it." (well of course!)
Console Wars—a mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry.
In 1990, Nintendo had a virtual monopoly on the video game industry. Sega, on the other hand, was just a faltering arcade company with big aspirations and even bigger personalities. But that would all change with the arrival of Tom Kalinske, a man who knew nothing about videogames and everything about fighting uphill battles. His unconventional tactics, combined with the blood, sweat and bold ideas of his renegade employees, transformed Sega and eventually led to a ruthless David-and-Goliath showdown with rival Nintendo.
The battle was vicious, relentless, and highly profitable, eventually sparking a global corporate war that would be fought on several fronts: from living rooms and schoolyards to boardrooms and Congress.
Based on over two hundred interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, Console Wars is the underdog tale of how Kalinske miraculously turned an industry punchline into a market leader.
Blake J. Harris is a writer and filmmaker based out of New York. He is currently codirecting the documentary based on this book, which is being produced by Scott Rudin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg. He will also serve as an executive producer on Sony's feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.
In Second to None, author Joe Valerio tells the incredible story of the Buffalo Bills: the perpetual almost-champions and their indomitable fans. The Bills' incredible skill and teamwork on the field was matched only by their single-minded determination as, in the four years spanning 1991 to 1994, the team won four consecutive conference championships, and lost four consecutive Super Bowls. The peaks and nadirs of their record reflect a fascinatingly dynamic, uneven, and—at times—uncontrollable array of talents. Valerio renders in sharp detail how the Bills' unique culture was formed by an unlikely ecosystem of world-class athletes hunkered down in bleak western New York, far away from the celebrity playgrounds of other pro teams. Meticulously researched and carefully crafted, this one-of-a-kind look inside the Super Bowl-era Buffalo Bills is based on extensive interviews with the key players, coaches, and management, including Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, as well as coach Marv Levy, general manager Bill Polian, and many others, including players and coaches from opposing teams, and the reporters who covered them.
