Part manifesto, part history, part cultural criticism, part self-help, Make Art Make Money is a new kind of business book for creative professionals: a guide for creating and succeeding thanks to lessons from the Muppet Master himself"--

Read Jason Kersten's posts on the Penguin Blog. The true story of a brilliant counterfeiter who "made" millions, outwitted the Secret Service, and was finally undone when he went in search of the one thing his forged money couldn't buy him: family. Art Williams spent his boyhood in a comfortable middle-class existence in 1970s Chicago, but his idyll was shattered when, in short order, his father abandoned the family, his bipolar mother lost her wits, and Williams found himself living in one of Chicago's worst housing projects. He took to crime almost immediately, starting with petty theft before graduating to robbing drug dealers. Eventually a man nicknamed "DaVinci" taught him the centuries-old art of counterfeiting. After a stint in jail, Williams emerged to discover that the Treasury Department had issued the most secure hundred-dollar bill ever created: the 1996 New Note. Williams spent months trying to defeat various security features before arriving at a bill so perfect that even law enforcement had difficulty distinguishing it from the real thing. Williams went on to print millions in counterfeit bills, selling them to criminal organizations and using them to fund cross-country spending sprees. Still unsatisfied, he went off in search of his long-lost father, setting in motion a chain of betrayals that would be his undoing. In The Art of Making Money, journalist Jason Kersten details how Williams painstakingly defeated the anti-forging features of the New Note, how Williams and his partner-in-crime wife converted fake bills into legitimate tender at shopping malls all over America, and how they stayed one step ahead of the Secret Service until trusting the wrong person brought them all down. A compulsively readable story of how having it all is never enough, The Art of Making Money is a stirring portrait of the rise and inevitable fall of a modern-day criminal mastermind. Watch a Video

Forward By: Brenda L. Stovall We have all sinned and come short of the Glory of God. But when the epiphany of the realization of an apparent error has occurred, we must make a u-turn from traveling the " Broad Way" and redirect our steps to the road "less traveled" and become the spiritual trailblazers we were meant to be. This book is a road map to success retold in a poetical format for those who have forgotten their atlas at home, were given "wrong instructions", have taken "shortcuts" "detours" or just "stuck in traffic". This book is for the proud who are too afraid to pull over to ask for directions for the sake of looking bad, but not realizing that they are already looking bad because everyone else in the car saw the exit sign miles ago, but they choose not to listen and continued on their own journey until they've reached the turnpike of life and just don't know how to get off. It is when we are on the road to success, we will obtain fulfillment because now we have stepped into our purpose, because He knows the plans He has for us of good and not evil. He is soo good; we do not even have to fret because He has ordered our steps. He is Jesus Christ. This is not your typical poetry book. This book is meant to unveil the layers that have been cloaked by the enemy, to free people's minds and hearts, to allow them the space to breathe again because we have a redemptive quality in God. Knowing the price for our sins was paid at Calvary. So when others laugh and scorn you for your past, you will know without a doubt, that the redeemed of the Lord can say So! That there is a Sea called Forgetfulness and we need to learn how to swim in it. Instead of stirring up the philosophical jargon of "what happened in yo

Their work, both celebrated and controversial, depicts stories from the Buddha's lives in otherworldly landscapes punctuated with sly references to this-worldly politics and popular culture. Schooled in international art trends, the artists reverse an Orientalist narrative of the Asian Other, telling their own stories to diverse audiences and subsuming Western spaces into a Buddhist worldview."--BOOK JACKET.
