The car that could : the inside story of GM's revolutionary electric vehicle by Michael Shnayerson( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than six years ago, General Motors vowed publicly to mass-produce the world's first modern electric vehicle. As risky in its own right was GM's decision to let a writer record the program's progress from inside the gates of its Tech Center in Warren, Michigan, exactly as he saw it, however it might turn out. The result is a remarkably intimate portrait in the tradition of Tracy Kidder's The Soul of a New Machine, a story of the people who found new answers to the
Coal river by Michael Shnayerson( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of America's most dramatic environmental battles is unfolding in southern West Virginia. Coal companies are blasting the mountains, decapitating them for coal. The forested ridge tops and valley streams of Appalachia--one of the country's natural treasures--are being destroyed, along with towns and communities. An entire culture is disappearing, and to this day, most Americans have no idea it's happening. Michael Shnayerson first traveled to the coal fields four years ago, on assignment for Vanity Fair. There he met an inspiring young lawyer named Joe Lovett, who was fighting mountaintop removal in court with a series of brilliant and daring lawsuits. He also met Judy Bonds, whose grassroots group, the Coal River Mountain Watch, was speaking out in a region where talking truth to power was both brave and dangerous. The two had joined forces to take on Massey Energy, the largest and most aggressive of the coal companies, and its swaggering, notorious chairman, Don Blankenship. Coal River is Shnayerson's account of this dramatic struggle. From courtroom to boardroom, forest clearing to factory floor, Shnayerson gives us a novelistic and compelling portrait of the people who risked their reputations and livelihoods in the fight against King Coal
Irwin Shaw : a biography by Michael Shnayerson( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He was one of America's greatest storytellers. The Young Lions; Rich Man, Poor Man; The Girls in their Summer Dresses, novels, essays, dramas, screenplays, and some of the finest short stories of our century: in seventy-one years crowded with accomplishment and contradiction, Irwin Shaw wrote them all. Success came early, but then he had to struggle with the temptations of success. He achieved a greater level of celebrity than most writers of his generation, then had to grapple with the demons that celebrity brings. He was known everywhere for his generosity and charm, but became almost as legendary for his battles -- with the Group Theatre, with The New Yorker, with his book publishers, with competitors such as Hemingway, with his wife in their stormy marriage. - Jacket flap

Before I Forget by Michael Shnayerson( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I know where I'm going. I'm still myself. I just can't remember things as well as I once did. So on short trips, I work hard not to be confused. I'll say to myself, "What are we going to do? How long are we staying?" It's like I'm talking to my other self--the self I used to be. She tells me, "This is what we need to buy--not that." I'm conscious of that other self guiding me now." Restaurateur, magazine publisher, celebrity chef, and nationally known lifestyle maven, B. Smith is struggling at 64 with a tag she never expected to add to that string: Alzheimer's patient. She's not alone. Every 67 seconds someone newly develops it, and millions of lives are affected by its aftershocks. B. and her husband, Dan, working with Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Shnayerson, unstintingly share their unfolding story. Crafted in short chapters that interweave their narrative with practical and helpful advice, readers learn about dealing with Alzheimer's day-to-day challenges: the family realities and tensions, ways of coping, coming research that may tip the scale, as well lessons learned along the way. At its heart, though, Before I Forget is a love story: illuminating a love of family, life, and hope. From the Hardcover edition
The contender : Andrew Cuomo, a biography by Michael Shnayerson( Recording )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Andrew Cuomo's political life reads like a novel, and for the first time that story will be told in The Contender, a no-holds-barred biography by Vanity Fair writer Michael Shnayerson. In many ways, Cuomo's rise and fall and rise again is an iconic narrative: the story of the young American politician of vaunting ambition, aiming for nothing less than the presidency. Like many other politicians, Cuomo had to come back from seeming political death and reinvent himself. He did so brilliantly, becoming New York's attorney general, compiling a four-year record of significant cases focusing on public corruption, and then running for, and winning, the governorship in 2010, promising to clean up America's most dysfunctional legislature. In The Contender, Shnayerson digs deep into Cuomo's fascinating personal life, from his marriage to Kerry Kennedy to his relationship with Sandra Lee. Andrew Cuomo remains one of the country's most potent and impressive political leaders--one about whom pundits tend to agree that the White House is not a question of whether but of when. With Cuomo's reelection this November, the nation will be abuzz about this rising star for the 2016 presidential election

The big book of the Hamptons by Michael Shnayerson( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hamptons have long been a haven for the world's elite. Its breathtaking vistas inspired Walt Whitman and Winslow Homer; its social forebears include the likes of Gerald and Sara Murphy entertaining greats such as Léger and Fitzgerald; Kurt Vonnegut, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol all found inspiration on America's Riviera. Spectacular estates from the Gilded Age's business barons, designed by legendary architects such as Stanford White, rival the sprawling mansions of today's hedge fund managers and the myriad boldface names attracted to this beachfront strip on Long Island each summer season. The Big Book of the Hamptons celebrates the mystique and romance of one of the most iconic and extravagant neighborhoods in the world, exploring the architecture and gardens of these secluded retreats, brought to life with amazing imagery in a deluxe volume."--From publisher's web site

Gambling : Vegas, Birmingham, and Martin Luther King, Jr. : from My song by Harry Belafonte( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An eBook short. A participant's portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, from Harry Belafonte's memoir of activism and entertainment, My Song. Birmingham, Alabama in 1963 was one of the most segregated cities in America. It had segregated lunch counters, restrooms, and water fountains. It had a nickname, "Bombingham," for the homemade bombs detonated by local Klansmen. And it had Eugene "Bull" Connor, a racist police chief with a hair-trigger temper. It was here that Dr. King and his advisers, Harry Belafonte among them, rolled the dice on an enormous action which would rejuvenate the civil rights movement. Harry Belafonte is one of America's greatest entertainers and also one of our most profoundly influential activists. During the 1960s he befriended MLK and began using his celebrity in support of civil rights and other social causes. This is Belafonte's personal story of fame, performance, and a lasting friendship. From stages in Vegas to political salons in New York, to the streets of Birmingham and letters from Birmingham Jail, Belafonte gives the reader a unique view of Martin Luther King, Jr. at one of his finest moments
