Thousand and One Afternoons in Chicago (Dodo Press) by Ben Hecht
Book DescriptionA book which is based on the author, Ben Hecht's sensational column, A Thousand and One Afternoons in Chicago, which he wrote for the Chicago Daily News. Hecht was a prolific Hollywood screenwriter, even though he professed disdain for the motion picture industry. He was nominated six times for the Academy Award, winning twice, in 1929 and in 1936. Hecht eventually moved to Hollywood, where he scripted Josef von Sternberg's gangster story Underworld in 1927, and won an Oscar for his work at the first Academy Awards presentation. His plays include Twentieth Century and The Front Page, both of which he wrote with frequent collaborator Charles MacArthur. The latter was filmed four times, most notably as Howard Hawks' His Girl Friday in 1940. Much of Hecht's later work was uncredited, as he worked as a "script doctor."

It collects sixty-four of the columns that the author wrote for "Chicago Daily News".
My Story, Hardback (September 2006)
Written at the height of her fame but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, and her marriage to Joe DiMaggio.

Nonprofit managers have been slow to embrace the digital age. Although technology has transformed the face of the for-profit sector and how it operates, nonprofit use of technology to improve internal functioning and to change the way services are delivered is almost nonexistent.
