Samuel R. Delany has been described as “American science fiction’s most consistently brilliant and inventive writer.”  Delany’s non-fiction includes the essay collection, “The Jewel-Hinged Jaw: Notes on the Language of Science Fiction.”

2:00 “when the words are put together in poetic form, you listen to them differently. You pay attention to them differently. When they’re put together in a prose form, again you pay a different kind of attention to them. And it’s the same thing with science fiction.”

2:33 “Then her world exploded”

Richard Branson is not your average entrepreneur. He dropped out of school at 15 and, despite suffering from dyslexia and attention deficit disorder, went on to found Virgin Group, a business empire that includes airlines, cellphone companies, banks, hotels, health clubs and even a space travel business.

In his new book, Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School, Branson reflects on his dyslexia as well as some frequently asked questions about his success.
