David Mills first discovered the legendary Dakar Rally during a three-month motorcycle tour of South America. In 2012, he became an embedded member of a Chilean Dakar team with unprecedented access to the rally; now he shares the story of his experiences. This firsthand account describes the three grueling weeks he lived with the tight-knit Dakar community as they battled the brutal conditions in the ultimate long-distance, off-road competition. Zero to Sixty shares stories of crossing the driest deserts on the planet, visiting lush vineyards and wine regions, getting lost on mountain passes, encountering earthquakes and landslides, enduring drastic temperature changes, and experiencing altitude sickness at more than 15,500 feet. Zero to Sixty offers a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the legendary Dakar Rally, its people and its history, providing insight as to what drives these athletes to live on the edge of disaster while attempting to finish what is the world’s deadliest sporting event.

The Goal of this Book: The goal of this book is to give you two things regarding hedge funds, private equity, and other asset management firms. Two things that anybody can learn and then use to talk about with their friends and coworkers. The first is the knowledge - a foundation tool set of key words, industry phrases and financial concepts made clear in plain english. This book puts meanings and understanding to terms you may have already heard in finance but did not quite understand. There is no math and there are no equations. This is not an academic paper nor does it want to be. The goal is to help you grasp that concepts. Just interesting stories and detailed explanations to get you familiar with a variety of topics: * How hedge and private equity funds are structured * Who their investors are * Pension funds and endowments. The model practiced by the $20 billion Yale Endowment and the $650 billion Norway Pension Fund * Fund investing strategies. Event-driven (including IPOs, splits and spinoffs), merger arbitrage, private equity type sidepockets, and more * Junk bonds, options, swaps, and other derivatives * Leveraged buyouts and other types of private equity investing * Venture capital funds and big changes affecting the venture capital industryThe second thing you get makes this more than just a compilation of Wikipedia articles. Imagine yourself sitting next to a fund or an investor in a fund and observing them do something or make a move. Sure you want to know "what" they did but the stuff that would be truly interesting is the "why". What is going through their head in doing this? This book walks you through it all so that you get to take in the mindsets, perspectives and incentives of the fund's managers, investors and more. There is a whole lot more strategy going on than what you might at first think. It does not matter who you are: A student in school thinking about joining the alternative asset management industry, a retiree who wants to know more about these weird fund things, or a person who works with or near a hedge fund but has no idea what they really do. Does not matter. The only thing you need to have is a desire to start learning. If you are familiar with some of it, you can build on it here. If you are beginning from scratch (just as I myself was), you are in good hands.About 3.0: The third version of From Zero to Sixty is an update on many of the growing trends in hedge funds and private equity from the rise and fall of global macro investing to the emergence of sovereign wealth funds as the most powerful investing entities on Earth. Performance figures and statistics are updated. New concepts like short squeezes are brought to light. It is more of what you want to know. Despite the 3.0 moniker and the new cover, this book's goal remains the same: Bring people up to speed on a fast-moving and complicated industry full of difficult lingo. This book is an education, a learning course set up with you in mind. That has not changed. The world changes every day. This book wants you to help you keep up with it.

With annual sales exceeding the $600 Million Mark, Texas Direct Auto is the largest independent dealership in the nation and is the largest eBay Motors Dealership in the world. This book was written when the authors hit $60 Million in annual sales. Their continued success into the beyond proves that many of the techniques they cover in their book not only worked for them when they started this venture, but that they continue to work as they scale their enterprise. So how do you go from selling zero cars a month to over 400 cars a month is only 4 years? (As of 2014 they sell an average of 2500 units a month.) How do you buy that many vehicles, how do you manage your customers, how do you turn inventory more than once a month, how do you manage the 1000's of things that need to be done at any given second in time while keeping overhead as low as possible? How to do you stay organized, and how do you put the pedal to the metal and accelerate while doing all these things? These are the types of questions that the authors aim to answer in their Book Zero to Sixty Million. More than just a story, this book takes the reader for a ride in the Texas Direct Auto Machine and then lets them take a rare look under the hood of the world's largest independent car dealer. * If you are interested in starting your own business or are already in business for yourself, this book is for you. * If you are thinking of buying a car in the near future, this book is for you. * If you are a employee looking to get ahead at your place of work, this book is for you. * If you like to read about people and places and how they do the things they do, this book is for you.

As Vice President of the Lost Kings Motorcycle Club, I’ve spent a lot of years as a hit-it-and-quit-it player, only seeking a good time. Willing women are never in short supply. More than one night? No thanks. Until I met her. My perfect woman. Like a damn mermaid, she was beautiful, smart, sexy, and slippery as fuck. I thought I’d convinced her we’d be good together long-term, but then she disappeared without a word. Two years. That’s how long it’s been since I saw her. Took me a while, but I finally moved on. Then out of nowhere, my mythical woman resurfaces. She forgot to mention one little thing before she vanished. One small secret growing up into a big lie. It’s a betrayal too deep to overcome. I should hate her. Even though she’s heartbreak wrapped in a seductive package. I want her more than ever.

Mark Christensen grew up with a simple dream-to build a 600 horsepower suicide machine able to accelerate from zero to sixty in less time than it takes to read this sentence. When a friend offers him $100,000 to realize that dream, Christensen enlists Nick Pugh, the best young auto designer in the country. An idealistic, charismatic, twenty-two year old star student from the celebrated Art Center for Design in Pasadena, Pugh shows Christensen his sketches of the Xeno I-drawings that are stunningly original and strangely familiar-"as if they were the best ideas I never had." Thus inspired, the author sets out to assemble a "best of the best" group of engineers, mechanics and fabricators. But the dream becomes grander and the designs of the Xeno evolve spectacularly after the endlessly hard working utopian Pugh develops an ingenious method for automobiles to triple their driving range. And as new and wilder Xenos fly from Pugh's monster imagination, nothing seems impossible. That is until the author discovers that $100,000 may not even pay for the hubcaps that Pugh has envisioned. Build the Perfect Beast is a window into 21st century technology and cutting edge design at its most relevant and bizarre-an epic odyssey about craft, cars, opportunity and ambition that sizzles like American Graffiti on acid. This is a classic tale of chasing down the American dream.
