✏Boys and Girls Together Book Summary : An “extraordinary” novel of five friends coming of age in 1960s New York City, from a New York Times–bestselling, Academy Award–winning author (The Plain Dealer). William Goldman, the versatile author who gave us classic thrillers like Marathon Man, the immortal comedy of The Princess Bride, and the infamous Hollywood tell-all Adventures in the Screen Trade, offers a beautiful and sweeping novel inspired by his own coming-of-age, set against the backdrop of the New York theater world. In Boys and Girls Together, five friends—each of them young, creative, ambitious, and troubled—make their way to Manhattan in pursuit of their dreams. Aaron, the playwright; Walt, the director; Rudy and Jenny, both actors; and Branch, their producer, all come together to struggle, fight, love, create art, and face the hard truths of life. A popular sensation when it was first published in 1964, Boys and Girls Together remains a masterwork of heartbreaking emotional honesty. This ebook features a biography of William Goldman.

✏Audience Evolution Book Summary : "Philip M. Napoli offers a rich and original synthesis of the many factors that help construct the audience, as well as the social, economic, and legal consequences of that process, and he has a real talent for creating a cohesive, interesting, and important story. Anyone with a serious interest in the operation of the media industries or popular culture should read this book." James G. Webster, Northwestern University, author of Ratings Analysis: The Theory and Practice of Audience Research Today's consumers have unprecedented choice in terms of the technologies and platforms that access, produce, and distribute media content. The development and overlap of television, the internet, and other media technologies is fragmenting and empowering media audiences more than ever. Building on his award-winning book, Audience Economics, Philip M. Napoli maps the landscape of our current media environment and describes its challenge to traditional conceptions of the audience. He examines the redefinition of the industry-audience relationship by technologies that have moved the audience marketplace beyond traditional metrics. Media providers, advertisers, and audience measurement firms now deploy more sophisticated tools to gather and analyze audience information, focusing on factors rarely considered before, such as appreciation, recall, and engagement. Napoli explores the interplay between political and economic interests in the audience marketplace and its effect on audience evolution. He recounts the battles waged between stakeholders over the assessment of media audiences and efforts to restrict the functionality of new technologies. As Napoli makes clear, the very meaning of the media audience continues to evolve in response to changing technological, economic, and political conditions. "Philip M. Napoli introduces the reader to the technologies that are changing the audience marketplace, new media services that have and are being built with those technologies, and the possibilities for measuring aspects of audience members' responses to media products and the advertisements they make possible. he describes new tools for audience measurement, along with the controversies over their use, and the battles among industry interests over which new audience measurement tools should be accepted. I think the time is right for just this type of analysis. A well-researched text, and the scholarship is first rate and insightful." Steve Wildman, Michigan State University
