Self-Help Messiah

Kategoria: Pozostałe

An illuminating biography of the man who taught Americans „how to win friends and influence people” Before Stephen Covey. Oprah Winfrey. and Malcolm Gladwell there was Dale Carnegie. His book. How to Win Friends and Influence People. became a bestseller worldwide. and Life magazine named him one of the „most important Americans of the twentieth century.” This is the first full-scale biography of this influential figure. Dale Carnegie was born in rural Missouri-his father a poor farmer. his mother a successful preacher. To make ends meet he tried his hand at various sales jobs. and his failure to convince his customers to buy what he had to offer eventually became the fuel behind his future glory. Carnegie quickly figured out that something was amiss in American education and in the ways businesspeople related to each other. What he discovered was as simple as it was profound: understanding people’s needs and desires is paramount in any successful enterprise. Carnegie conceived his book to help people learn to relate to one another and enrich their lives through effective communication. His success was extraordinary. as 1920s America craved a little psychological insight that was easy to apply to everyday affairs.Self-Help Messiah tells the story of Carnegie’s personal journey and how it gave rise to the movement of self-help and personal reinvention.

us takeovers. and. looming over everything. the war in Vietnam. George Howe Colt’s The Game is the story of that iconic American year. as seen through the young men who lived it and were changed by it. One player had recently returned from Vietnam. Two were members of the radical antiwar group SDS. There was one NFL prospect who quit to devote his time to black altruism; another who went on to be Pro-Bowler Calvin Hill. There was a guard named Tommy Lee Jones. and fullback who dated a young Meryl Streep. They played side by side and together forged a moment of startling grace in the midst of the storm. ‚;Vibrant. energetic. and beautifully structured’ (NPR). this magnificent and intimate work of history is the story of ordinary people in an extraordinary time. and of a country facing issues that we continue to wrestle with to this day. ‚;The Game is the rare sports book that lives up to the claim of so many entrants in this genre: It is the portrait of an era’ (The Wall Street Journa

*A New York Times Notable Book* *A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year* From the bestselling National Book Award finalist and author of The Big House comes ‚;a well-blended narrative packed with top-notch reporting and relevance for our own time’ (The Boston Globe) about the young athletes who battled in the legendary Harvard-Yale football game of 1968 amidst the sweeping currents of one of the most transformative years in American history.On November 23. 1968. there was a turbulent and memorable football game: the season-ending clash between Harvard and Yale. The final score was 29-29. To some of the players. it was a triumph; to others a tragedy. And to many. the reasons had as much to do with one side’s miraculous comeback in the game’s final forty-two seconds as it did with the months that preceded it. months that witnessed the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy. police brutality at the Democratic National Convention. inner-city riots. camp

Leonardo da Vinci

Kategoria: Biografie i dzienniki

Najnowsza książka autora bestsellerów Steve Jobs i Innowatorzy – pobudzający wyobraźnię literacki portret Leonarda da Vinci. Odwołując się do liczących tysiące stron notatników geniusza. a także do najnowszych odkryć związanych z jego życiem i dorobkiem. Walter Isaacson snuje porywającą opowieść i po mistrzowsku splata wątki twórczości artystycznej Leonarda z jego dokonaniami naukowymi.

Spod pędzla Leonarda wyszły dwa najsłynniejsze obrazy w historii malarstwa: Ostatnia Wieczerza i Mona Lisa. On sam uważał się jednak nie tylko za malarza. ale też za naukowca i inżyniera. Z pasją graniczącą niekiedy z obsesją prowadził nowatorskie badania nad anatomią człowieka. skamieniałościami. ptakami. maszynami latającymi. botaniką. geologią i sztuką projektowania broni. Niezwykła umiejętność łączenia nauk humanistycznych i przyrodniczych – której symbolem stał się Człowiek witruwiański – uczyniła Leonarda jednym z najbardziej kreatywnych geniuszy w dziejach ludzkości.

Łączenie różnorodnych pasji. tak jak z upodobaniem robił to Leonardo. wciąż pozostaje najlepszym sposobem na rozbudzenie w sobie twórczej inwencji. Życiorys Leonarda – nieślubnego dziecka. homoseksualisty. mańkuta i wegetarianina. mającego problemy z koncentracją i ocierającego się czasem o herezję – to także najlepszy dowód na to. że outsider nie musi stać na straconej pozycji. Jego historia uświadamia nam. jak ważne jest. by nieustannie podsycać głód wiedzy. być gotowym do podawania jej w wątpliwość i mieć odwagę myśleć inaczej.

Za tak ludzki portret geniusza Isaacson zasługuje na wyrazy najwyższego uznania. „The Times”

Wiecznie głodny wiedzy. łatwo się rozpraszający. próżny. a przy tym wegetarianin. W znakomitej biografii Isaacsona Leonardo jest człowiekiem z krwi i kości. „The Sunday Times”

Niezwykle pouczający przewodnik po twórczym dorobku jednego z największych umysłów minionego tysiąclecia. „The Observer”
