Merge Records defies everything you?ve heard about the music business. Started by two twenty-year-old musicians, Merge is a lesson in how to make and market great music on a human scale.  The fact that the company is prospering in a failing industry is something of a miracle. Yet two of their bands made the Billboard Top 10 list; more than 1 million copies of Arcade Fire's Neon Bible have been sold; Spoon has appeared on Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show; and the Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs is a contemporary classic. In celebration of their twentieth anniversary, founders Mac and Laura offer first-person accounts?with the help of their colleagues and Merge artists?of their work, their lives, and the culture of making music. Our Noise also tells the behind-the-scenes stories of Arcade Fire, Spoon, the Magnetic Fields, Superchunk, Lambchop, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Butterglory. Hundreds of personal photos of the bands, along with album cover art, concert posters, and other memorabilia are included.

Investors face a potential financial crisis if they fail to make better decisions today. Perhaps this helps to account for the surprising results of a recent survey which found that one of every four retirees considers life in retirement to be worse than it was before they retired. The survey further showed that one of every three investors had lost trust in their advisor, while two thirds did not believe their advisor had done a good job of managing their assets during the last market downturn. Hopefully, the experience with your advisor has been different, but there is absolutely no excuse for you not to have an understanding of these fundamental principles. This book is intended to help you understand the importance of some of the critical and essential issues of investment portfolio construction, as well as to enlighten you on what to look for in an investment advisor and investment allocation. The success of your investments or lack thereof will end up affecting you and your family's lives far more than just the financial impact.
