    The instant New York Times bestseller.

  • Do Not Sell At Any Price – Amanda Petrusich

    “A thoughtful, entertaining history of obsessed music collectors and their quest for rare early 78 rpm records” (Los Angeles Times), Do Not Sell at Any Price is a fascinating, complex story of preservation, loss, obsession, and art.

While vinyl has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, rare and noteworthy 78rpm records are exponentially harder to come by. The most ...

  • A Little Bit of Everything For Dummies – John Wiley & Sons

    Twenty years ago the very first For Dummies book, DOS For Dummies, was published.

No single volume can hope to summarize what thousands of titles have meant to millions of readers over the years, and we don't claim to do that in this e-book. Rather, this e-book celebrates the breadth and depth of the For Dummies series, offering 20 chapters - in honor of our 20 years - from a list of books compiled by our global colleagues.
