  1. 书名:If You're Not Having Fun Selling Real Estate, You're Not Doing it Right
    作者:Allan, Jennifer
    出版日期:2010-01-03
    Having more fun selling real estate isn’t about long lunches, casual Fridays or bring-your-dog-to-work day. It’s about being really, really good at selling real estate. And knowing it. It’s about being proud of how you promote yourself and your business. It’s about making a comfortable (or even exceptional) income without changing who you are or becoming someone you don’t recognize. It’s about getting up every morning, eager to get to work, because you know you’re the best thing that could ever happen to your clients. Now that's fun.

  2. 书名:The New Digital Age
    作者:Jared Cohen
    作者:Eric Schmidt
    出版日期:2013-04-23T00:22:31+00:00
    <p class="description">In an unparalleled collaboration, two leading global thinkers in technology and foreign affairs give us their widely anticipated, transformational vision of the future: a world where everyone is connected—a world full of challenges and benefits that are ours to meet and to harness. Eric Schmidt is one of Silicon Valley’s great leaders, having taken Google from a small startup to one of the world’s most influential companies. Jared Cohen is the director of Google Ideas and a former adviser to secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. With their combined knowledge and experiences, the authors are uniquely positioned to take on some of the toughest questions about our future: Who will be more powerful in the future, the citizen or the state? Will technology make terrorism easier or harder to carry out? What is the relationship between privacy and security, and how much will we have to give up to be part of the new digital age? In this groundbreaking book, Schmidt and Cohen combine observation and insight to outline the promise and peril awaiting us in the coming decades. At once pragmatic and inspirational, this is a forward-thinking account of where our world is headed and what this means for people, states and businesses. With the confidence and clarity of visionaries, Schmidt and Cohen illustrate just how much we have to look forward to—and beware of—as the greatest information and technology revolution in human history continues to evolve. On individual, community and state levels, across every geographical and socioeconomic spectrum, they reveal the dramatic developments—good and bad—that will transform both our everyday lives and our understanding of self and society, as technology advances and our virtual identities become more and more fundamentally real. As Schmidt and Cohen’s nuanced vision of the near future unfolds, an urban professional takes his driverless car to work, attends meetings via hologram and dispenses housekeeping robots by voice; a Congolese fisherwoman uses her smart phone to monitor market demand and coordinate sales (saving on costly refrigeration and preventing overfishing); the potential arises for “virtual statehood” and “Internet asylum” to liberate political dissidents and oppressed minorities, but also for tech-savvy autocracies (and perhaps democracies) to exploit their citizens’ mobile devices for ever more ubiquitous surveillance. Along the way, we meet a cadre of international figures—including Julian Assange—who explain their own visions of our technology-saturated future. Inspiring, provocative and absorbing, The New Digital Age is a brilliant analysis of how our hyper-connected world will soon look, from two of our most prescient and informed public thinkers.From the Hardcover edition.</p>

  8. 书名:The Real Mad Men: The Renegades of Madison Avenue and the Golden Age of Advertising
    作者:Andrew Cracknell
    出版日期:2012-02-28T00:00:00+00:00
    <p>Advertising is a business rooted in art, an art rooted in business, and it reached its peak in a specific place at a specific time: New York City at the end of the 1950s and through the ’60s. </p><p>AMC’s award-winning drama <em>Mad Men</em> has garnered awards for its portrayal of advertising executives. This engaging, insightful narrative reveals, for the first time, the lives and work of the real advertising men and women of that era. Just as portrayed in the series, these creative people were the stars of the real Madison Avenue. Their innate eccentricity, vanity, and imagination meant their behavior and lifestyle was as candid and original as their advertising. They had it and they flaunted it. People like Bill Bernbach, George Lois, Ed McCabe, Mary Wells, Marion Harper, Julian Koenig, Steve Frankfurt, and Amil Gargano, and others, who in that small space, in that short time, created some of the most radical and influential advertising ever and sparked a revolution in the methods, practice, and execution of the business. Including over 100 full-color illustrations, the book details iconic campaigns such as VW, Avis, Alka Seltzer, Benson & Hedges, Polaroid, and Braniff Airways.</p><h3>Review</h3><p><strong><em>Publishers Weekly</em></strong><br />“Cracknell's account of the heyday of advertising—currently being explored on AMC's hit show Mad Men--is a terrific supplement to the show, as well as a primer on the evolution of the industry…Advertising geeks will gobble this up, but even those completely unaware of Don Draper and Sterling Cooper will appreciate this lively and spirited account.”</p><p><strong>David Abbott</strong><br />“Andrew Cracknell tells it like it was—the inside story of the men and women who kept Don Draper awake at night. Witty and invigorating.”</p><p><em />Ken Roman, former chairman of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide and author of <strong><em><em />The King of Madison Avenue: David Ogilvy and the Making of Modern Advertising</em></strong><br />“Andrew Cracknell has accurately captured what many people called the Golden Age of Advertising—with its postwar milieau, strong personalities and creative philosophies—and pinned it to the wall like an exotic butterfly in a collection. Like the period, the book is fun.”</p><p><strong>Jerry Della Femina</strong><br />“Andrew Cracknell has really nailed the “Mad Men” years. He tells the inside story of the advertising business as only someone who’s been right in the middle of the ad business can. I enjoyed reading it, and I’m really looking forward to the day they make a movie out of it because there’s a great movie here. I can only hope that George Clooney is around to play my part.”</p><p><strong>George Lois</strong><br />“I lived through half of what Andrew Cracknell writes about—and there's so much action on each page, my head was spinning. <em>The Real Mad Men</em> nails those days in real time – but take a valium before you read it. It's an eye-popping, roller-coaster ride, and the true story of the original Mad Men. Reading any chapter in Cracknell's book beats the hell out of watching a dozen segments of Mad Men.”</p><p><strong>Amil Gargano, former CEO & Creative Director of Ally & Gargano</strong><br />“In 1955, I tiptoed into advertising with apprehension and distrust of a business that appeared to rejoice in its triviality. In 2000, I left advertising without regret and an enormous sense of pride. In those 45 years, I saw it all.<br />Now, Andrew Cracknell, has captured the essence and true character of advertising's Creative Revolution with meticulous research, deep insight, and revealing interviews with the serious and outrageous real Mad Men and Women of that radical era in this brilliant new book.”</p><p><em />Josh Raymond, (London) <strong><em><em />Times Literary Supplement</em></strong><br />“As befits an ad man’s output, Cracknell’s book is a sensuous beast. It exudes gloss, and the dense full-color pages curate classic advertisements and photographs of industry players, all large and juxtaposed attractively with the text…much like a good advertisement, the book successfully informs, entertains and pleases the eye.”<br /></p><p><strong><em>Book News</em></strong><br />“The text will interest students, academics, and professionals in business and advertising as well as general readers fascinated by the this period in advertising and American History.”</p><h3>About the Author</h3><p><strong>Andrew Cracknell</strong> served as Executive Creative Director for many major international agencies, on both sides of the Atlantic, for every business category and in every available medium. For this book, he undertook extensive in-depth research and recorded many hours of interviews with the advertising women and men of the era, from secretaries to directors. He also writes regularly for <em>The Financial Times</em> and <em>Campaign</em> magazine. He can usually be found in London, New York, or sailing his boat in the Aegean.</p><p><strong>Sir John Hegarty</strong> was an award-winning art director at Benton and Bowles, London, and later started Bartle Bogle Hegarty, <em>Campaign</em>’s Agency of the Year in 1986, 1993, 2003, 2004, and 2005. In 2005, the International Clio Awards awarded John with the Lifetime Achievement Award. He lives in London.</p><p><strong>Fred Danzig</strong> was the executive editor for <em>Ad Age</em> from 1968 to 1995. He is the coauthor of <em>How to be Heard: Making the Media Work for You</em> with Tim Klein and was adjunct instructor at the New School in NYC.</p>

Breaking and entering and blackmail are just tools of his trade.<br>Despite the circumstances, the spark of attraction between Brock and Kyle is strong. Brock’s addiction to adrenaline-fuelled adventure holds him captive, just as much as Kyle’s brooding dominant appeal. As a fragile trust builds between them, Kyle takes a gamble and tells Brock the truth about his mission. Can Brock accept the challenges ahead—as a photographer and as a man?<br> <br>'Rockin' the Alternative' by Mortica Knight<br>The chance of a lifetime and the touch of a rock god are offered to music journalist Bryan Gallagher on the same day. Embracing one is easy, but resisting the other is harder than he’d anticipated—especially since Bryan has never been with a man.<br>It could be his dream assignment. Aubrey King, the legendary god of alternative rock music, has requested to meet with journalist and writer Bryan about penning the star’s memoir. Aubrey and his dark, angsty songs are the reason Bryan was inspired to become a leading rock journalist. His obsession for his career has alienated the women in his life, but Bryan doesn’t care. What really matters to him is the music.<br>Aubrey King has been out of the music scene for almost ten years—ever since his alternative rock band, Falling in Stereo, broke up. Questions about his sexual preferences have always surrounded him, and now that he’s ready to make a solo comeback, he wants to tell his story, his way. He’s followed journalist Bryan Gallagher’s career for a while and believes that Bryan’s obvious passion for music mirrors his own. He loves his writing style, but is also enraptured by the boyishly handsome writer.<br>Brian finds pushing his fanboy nervousness aside is difficult when Aubrey finally stands before him. He’s amazed at how little Aubrey has changed—his intense gaze, his unique style and his still youthful looks epitomise the star he’s always been. But Aubrey’s vulnerability when he sings and shares the deeply personal lyrics of a new song triggers something in Bryan that he never knew was there. The need to give himself to Aubrey, to let the rock god do to him what he’s never before desired a man to do.</p>

  10. 书名:Social Intelligence
    作者:Daniel Goleman
    出版日期:2006-09-01T10:00:00+00:00
    <p><strong>Emotional Intelligence</strong> was an international phenomenon, appearing on the<em> New York Times</em> bestseller list for over a year and selling more than five million copies worldwide. Now, once again, Daniel Goleman has written a groundbreaking synthesis of the latest findings in biology and brain science, revealing that we are “wired to connect” and the surprisingly deep impact of our relationships on every aspect of our lives.</p><p>Far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies—down to the level of our genes—for good or ill. In <strong>Social Intelligence</strong>, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging new science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. Its most fundamental discovery: we are designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a “neural ballet” that connects us brain to brain with those around us.</p><p>Our reactions to others, and theirs to us, have a far-reaching biological impact, sending out cascades of hormones that regulate everything from our hearts to our immune systems, making good relationships act like vitamins—and bad relationships like poisons. We can “catch” other people’s emotions the way we catch a cold, and the consequences of isolation or relentless social stress can be life-shortening. Goleman explains the surprising accuracy of first impressions, the basis of charisma and emotional power, the complexity of sexual attraction, and how we detect lies. He describes the “dark side” of social intelligence, from narcissism to Machiavellianism and psychopathy. He also reveals our astonishing capacity for “mindsight,” as well as the tragedy of those, like autistic children, whose mindsight is impaired.</p><p>Is there a way to raise our children to be happy? What is the basis of a nourishing marriage? How can business leaders and teachers inspire the best in those they lead and teach? How can groups divided by prejudice and hatred come to live together in peace? </p><p>The answers to these questions may not be as elusive as we once thought. And Goleman delivers his most heartening news with powerful conviction: we humans have a built-in bias toward empathy, cooperation, and altruism–provided we develop the social intelligence to nurture these capacities in ourselves and others. </p>

  11. 书名:Isaac Asimov: The Complete Stories. Vol. 2
    作者:Isaac Asimov
    出版日期:1990-01-02T07:00:00+00:00
    <div><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>This collection of 40 stories, ranging from the mundane to the inspired, offers a sufficient variety to tempt both the newcomer and the devoted fan. The difficulties of day-to-day life for settlers on the planet Mars are revealed in the classic "The Martian Way." When an isolationist Earth government suddenly declares that it is cutting back on the water necessary for the Spacers to survive, these rugged pioneers must find the future on their own. Asimov's world-controlling super-computer Multivac appears in "The Life and Times of Multivac." Although this man-made intelligence nurtures the tiny population of humans that survived the catastrophes of the 20th century, its good deeds are met with resentment. But when the computer is tricked into short-circuiting, the dazed humans aren't prepared to handle the responsibility of their own lives. Salvation, however, rests in the hands of Asimov's robots: devoted, patient, almost loving servants. In the award-winning "The Bicentennial Man," a robot who is accidentally endowed with artistic ability is treated as a freak by his human betters, yet he spends his entire existence seeking only one thing: human form. <br>Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. </p><h3>From Library Journal</h3><p>This ongoing effort to collect all the stories of sf's most prolific writer contains 40 samples of Asimov's talent, including "The Martian Way" and "The Bicentennial Man."<br>Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. </p></div>

  13. 书名:Don't Bother Me Mom—I'm Learning
    作者:Marc Prensky
    出版日期:2011-06-02
    <p class="description">“This book does a pretty good job of smashing the old argument that video games are harmful to children. Instead, it fills the void with statements showing how gaming can teach advanced problem solving, language and cognitive skills, strategic thinking, multitasking, and parallel processing. All of which are skills vital to survival in the increasingly technocratic 21st century. Backed up with solid research, demonstrating the accelerated formulation of these skills, the book looks at topics such as Military use of games to teach strategy, laparoscopic surgeons who play games as a "warm-up" before surgery, and business leaders who played games growing up, to hone their skills. The book is packed with positivity about gaming, and consistently moves to address parental concerns such as addiction, social isolation, or aggressive tendencies."</p>

  14. 书名:KAGE (KAGE Trilogy Book 1)
    作者:Maris Black
    出版日期:2015-05-24
    ROUND 1 of the KAGE Trilogy
    My name is Jamie Atwood, and I’m an addict. I never thought I’d say such a thing. Never had a problem being overly-attached to anything in my life. I came from a perfectly middle-class family, made good grades, and had a hot cheerleader girlfriend. But the truth is, nothing ever really moved me. So how did a guy like me become an addict?
    I met Michael Kage.
    Kage is an MMA fighter. A famous one. I like to think I helped him get that way.
    He’s charming as hell, with looks to rival any movie star and talent to back it up. So why did he need to hire me as an intern Publicist? Simple. He has a darkness in him– like a black hole so deep it could swallow him, and me, and everyone we know– and that’s not good for business.
    The first time I met him, I felt the pull. I think the addiction began at that very moment. And even if I’d known then what I know now, I would have fallen for him. How could I not?
    For me, Kage is everything.

  17. 书名:Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
    作者:Steven Johnson
    出版日期:2006-05-02T00:00:00+00:00
    <div><p>Forget everything you’ve ever read about the age of dumbed-down, instant-gratification culture. In this provocative, unfailingly intelligent, thoroughly researched, and surprisingly convincing big idea book, Steven Johnson draws from fields as diverse as neuroscience, economics, and media theory to argue that the pop culture we soak in every day—from <strong>Lord of the Rings</strong> to <strong>Grand Theft Auto</strong> to <strong>The Simpsons</strong>—has been growing more sophisticated with each passing year, and, far from rotting our brains, is actually posing new cognitive challenges that are actually making our minds measurably sharper. After reading <em>Everything Bad is Good for You</em>, you will never regard the glow of the video game or television screen the same way again.</p><p>With a new afterword by the author.<br></p><p>Steven Johnson's newest book, <em>Future Perfect</em>, is now available from Riverhead Books.</p><h3>Amazon.com Review</h3><p>In his fourth book, <em>Everything Bad Is Good for You</em>, iconoclastic science writer Steven Johnson (who used himself as a test subject for the latest neurological technology in his last book, <em>Mind Wide Open</em>) takes on one of the most widely held preconceptions of the postmodern world--the belief that video games, television shows, and other forms of popular entertainment are detrimental to Americans' cognitive and moral development. <em>Everything Good</em> builds a case to the contrary that is engaging, thorough, and ultimately convincing. </p><p>The heart of Johnson's argument is something called the Sleeper Curve--a universe of popular entertainment that trends, intellectually speaking, ever upward, so that today's pop-culture consumer has to do more "cognitive work"--making snap decisions and coming up with long-term strategies in role-playing video games, for example, or mastering new virtual environments on the Internet-- than ever before. Johnson makes a compelling case that even today's least nutritional TV junk food–the <em>Joe Millionaire</em>s and <em>Survivor</em>s so commonly derided as evidence of America's cultural decline--is more complex and stimulating, in terms of plot complexity and the amount of external information viewers need to understand them, than the <em>Love Boat</em>s and <em>I Love Lucy</em>s that preceded it. When it comes to television, even (perhaps especially) crappy television, Johnson argues, "the content is less interesting than the cognitive work the show elicits from your mind." <br>Johnson's work has been controversial, as befits a writer willing to challenge wisdom so conventional it has ossified into accepted truth. But even the most skeptical readers should be captivated by the intriguing questions Johnson raises, whether or not they choose to accept his answers. <em>--Erica C. Barnett</em></p><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>Worried about how much time your children spend playing video games? Don't be, advises Johnson—not only are they learning valuable problem-solving skills, they'd probably do better on an IQ test than you or your parents could at their age. Go ahead and let them watch more television, too, since even reality shows can function as "elaborately staged group psychology experiments" to stimulate rather than pacify the brain. With the same winning combination of personal revelation and friendly scientific explanation he displayed in last year's <em>Mind Wide Open</em>, Johnson shatters the conventional wisdom about pop culture as pabulum, showing how video games, television shows and movies have become increasingly complex. Furthermore, he says, consumers are drawn specifically to those products that require the most mental engagement, from small children who can't get enough of their favorite Disney DVDs to adults who find new layers of meaning with each repeated viewing of <em>Seinfeld</em>. Johnson lays out a strong case that what we do for fun is just as educational in its way as what we study in the classroom (although it's still worthwhile to encourage good reading habits, too). There's an important message here for every parent—one they should hear from the source before savvy kids (especially teens) try to take advantage of it. <em>Agent, Lydia Wills at Paradigm.

  18. 书名:Average Is Over
    作者:Tyler Cowen
    出版日期:2013-09-12T07:00:00+00:00
    <div><p><strong>Widely acclaimed as one of the world’s most influential economists, Tyler Cowen returns with his groundbreaking follow-up to the <em>New York Times</em> bestseller <em>The Great Stagnation</em>.</strong> </p><p>The widening gap between rich and poor means dealing with one big, uncomfortable truth: If you’re not at the top, you’re at the bottom. </p><p>The global labor market is changing radically thanks to growth at the high end—and the low. About three quarters of the jobs created in the United States since the great recession pay only a bit more than minimum wage. Still, the United States has more millionaires and billionaires than any country ever, and we continue to mint them. </p><p>In this eye-opening book, renowned economist and bestselling author Tyler Cowen explains that phenomenon: High earners are taking ever more advantage of machine intelligence in data analysis and achieving ever-better results. Meanwhile, low earners who haven’t committed to learning, to making the most of new technologies, have poor prospects. Nearly every business sector relies less and less on manual labor, and this fact is forever changing the world of work and wages. A steady, secure life somewhere in the middle—average—is over. </p><p>With The Great Stagnation, Cowen explained why median wages stagnated over the last four decades; in <em>Average Is Over </em>he reveals the essential nature of the new economy, identifies the best path forward for workers and entrepreneurs, and provides readers with actionable advice to make the most of the new economic landscape. It is a challenging and sober must-read but ultimately exciting, good news. In debates about our nation’s economic future, it will be impossible to ignore.</p></div>

  20. ❤书名:Talking From 9 to 5: Women and Men at Work
    作者:Deborah Tannen
    出版日期:1995-04-23T04:00:00+00:00
    <div><div><p>In her extraordinary international bestseller, <em>You Just Don't Understand, </em>Deborah Tannen transformed forever the way we look at intimate relationships between women and men. Now she turns her keen ear and observant eye toward the workplace--where the ways in which men and women communicate can determine who gets heard, who gets ahead, and what gets done.</p></div><p>An instant classic, <em>Talking From 9 to 5 </em>brilliantly explains women's and men's conversational rituals--and the language barriers we unintentionally erect in the business world. It is a unique and invaluable guide to recognizing the verbal power games and miscommunications that cause good work to be underappreciated or go unnoticed--an essential tool for promoting more positive and productive professional relationships among men and women.</p><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>Tannen probes the way gender roles shape the ways men and women communicate in the workplace, and how these differences lead to misunderstandings. <br>
    Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. </p><h3>From Library Journal</h3><p>
    </p><p>Tannen (You Just Don't Understand, Morrow, 1990) describes differences in men's and women's public communication as found within the business setting. These differences appear to influence actual perceptions of worker skills and abilities. For example, women say "I'm sorry" without actually apologizing and tend to use an indirect manner of speech. These styles make women appear less confident, competent, and professional. However, women who learn to speak like men are accused of being aggressive and unfeminine. Written for the general reader, Tannen's work is entertaining and filled with illustrative conversations. It raises many issues of concern to working women, from knocking against the glass ceiling to dealing with sexual harassment. Unfortunately, Tannen's research has not yet suggested any linguistic solutions. Highly recommended for general public and academic libraries.<br>

  22. ❤书名:Quality Investing: Owning the Best Companies for the Long Term
    作者:Lawrence A Cunningham
    出版日期:2016-01-05T00:00:00+00:00
    <p>The concept of quality is familiar. People make judgments about it every day. Yet articulating a clear definition of quality is challenging.<br>
    The best companies often appear to be characterized by an ineffable something, much like that of people who seem graced by a lucky gene. Think about those of your peers who seem a lot like you but somehow always catch a break. They are not obviously smarter, smoother, richer, or better-looking than you, yet they are admitted to their university of choice, get their dream job, and earn considerable wealth. Try to discern what they have that you don’t, and you are stumped. Chalk it up to fate or plain dumb luck.<br>
    Businesses can be similar. For reasons that are not always evident, some end up doing the right things with better results than average. They may not appear to be savvier acquirers, more adept marketers, or bolder pioneers, yet they integrate new businesses better, launch products more successfully, and open new markets with fewer mishaps. Perhaps through some combination of vision, scale, or business philosophy, these companies uncannily come out ahead.<br>
    In our view, three characteristics indicate quality. These are strong, predictable cash generation; sustainably high returns on capital; and attractive growth opportunities.</p>

    "Quality Investing answers the riddle of what you get when you cross Peter Lynch's One Up on Wall Street with Seth Klarman's Margin of Safety.

    </strong><br>
    "I recommend Quality Investing highly as a guide to harness the power of core investment principles.

For a better life you must read this book...and fly Ryanair!!";- <strong>Michael O'Leary, Chief Executive, Ryanair;</strong> </p>
    <p>"Quality counts. If you are a long term investor, it's hard to find a more important factor as to what will power your ultimate investment returns. That said, quality is impossible to measure with precision because it often embodies more subjective qualitative factors than easily quantifiable measurements. Quality is also dynamic and changes over time. This book attempts through case studies, descriptions, and quantifiable measurement to help investors think systematically about quality and its importance. Enjoy!";- <strong>Thomas S.

  23. ❤书名:The Mesh: Why the Future of Business Is Sharing
    作者:Lisa Gansky
    出版日期:2010-10-14T22:00:00+00:00
    EDITORIAL REVIEW: "The Mesh is reshaping how we go to market, who we partner with, and how we invite participation and engage new customers. . . . If you embrace the Mesh you'll discover how your business can inspire customers in a world where access trumps ownership." -**Lisa Gansky** Traditional businesses follow a simple formula: create a product or service, sell it, collect money. But in the last few years a fundamentally different model has taken root-one in which consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power. Pioneering entrepreneur Lisa Gansky calls it the Mesh and reveals why it will soon dominate the future of business. Mesh companies use social media, wireless networks, and data crunched from every available source to provide people with goods and services at the exact moment they need them, without the burden and expense of owning them outright. Gansky reveals how there is real money to be made and trusted brands and strong communities to be built in helping your customers buy less but use more. Consider the explosive growth of Zipcar. By exploiting the latest technology and making it easy and affordable to have a car whenever you need one, this young company is helping to redefine personal transportation. And deeply worrying established competitors. Gansky shows how the same pattern is playing out with less famous Mesh companies that are reinventing an enormous range of industries: * thredUP enables mail-in kids'-clothing swaps. One year after launching, it has 10,000 members exchanging more than 14,000 items per month. * Kickstarter connects artists who need funding with small donors who want to support them. The firm has helped hundreds of projects raise as much as $200,000 without the usual angst of fundraising. * Groupon harnesses collective buying power to offer daily discounts to its 5 million subscribers. Sixteen months after inception, it has raised over $170 million in venture capital. In the tradition of *The Long Tail*, *The Mesh* illustrates a huge new opportunity that's already driving new businesses and renewing old ones. It's your essential guide to the new wave of information-enabled commerce that's also improving our communities and our planet.

  24. ❤书名:Man, Economy, and State With Power and Market, Scholar's Edition
    作者:Murray N. Rothbard
    出版日期:2009-03-10T00:00:00+00:00
    Murray N. Rothbard's great treatise Man, Economy, and State and its complementary text Power and Market, are here combined into a single edition as they were written to be. It provides a sweeping presentation of Austrian economic theory, a reconstruction of many aspects of that theory, a rigorous criticism of alternative schools, and an inspiring look at a science of liberty that concerns nearly everything and should concern everyone. The Mises Institute's new edition of Man Economy, and State, united with its formerly sundered companion volume Power and Market, is a landmark in the history of the Institute. It takes this book out of the category of underground classic and raises it up to its proper status as one of the great economic treatises of all time, a book that is essential for anyone seeking a robust economic education. This new edition will take your breath away with its beauty and quality. It's remarkable that a book this thick could lay so flat and be so durable with super-solid binding. It somehow turns out not to be unweildy. Get it with the Study Guide and you will have what you need. The captivating new introduction by Professor Joseph Salerno that frames up the Rothbardian contribution in a completely new way, and reassesses the place of this book in the history of economic thought. In Salerno's view, Rothbard was not attempting to write a distinctively "Austrian" book but rather a comprehensive treatise on economics that eschewed the Keynesian and positivist corruptions. This is what accounts for its extraordinarily logical structure and depth. That it would later be called Austrian is only due to the long-lasting nature of the corruptions of economics that Rothbard tried to correct.For years, the Mises Institute has kept it in print and sold thousands of copies in a nice paperback version. Then we decided to take a big step and put out an edition worthy of this great treatise. It is the Scholar's Edition of Man, Economy, and State--an edition that immediately became definitive and used throughout the world. The footnotes (which are so brilliant and informative!) are at the bottom of every page. The index is huge and comprehensive. The binding is impeccable and its beauty unmatched.Students have used this book for decades as the intellectual foil for what they have been required to learning from conventional economics classes. In many ways, it has built the Austrian school in the generation that followed Mises. It was Rothbard who polished the Austrian contribution to theory and wove it together with a full-scale philosophy of political ethics that inspired the generation of the Austrian revival, and continues to fuel its growth and development today.From Rothbard, we learn that economics is the science that deals with the rise and fall of civilization, the advancement and retrenchment of human development, the feeding and healing of the multitudes, and the question of whether human affairs are dominated by cooperation or violence.Economics in Rothbard's wonderful book emerges as the beautiful logic of that underlies human action in a world of scarcity, the lens on how exchange makes it possible for people to cooperate toward their mutual betterment. We see how money facilitates this, and allows for calculation over time that permits capital to expand and investment to take place. We see how entrepreneurship, based on real judgments and risk taking, is the driving force of the market.What's striking is how this remarkable book has lived in the shadows for so long. It began as a guide to Human Action, and it swelled into a treatise in its own right. Rothbard worked many years on the book, even as he was completing his PhD at Columbia University. He realized better than anyone else that Mises's economic theories were so important that they needed restatement and interpretation. But he also knew that Misesian theory needed elaboration, expansion, and application in a variety of areas. The result was much more: a rigorous but accessible defense of the whole theory of the market economy, from its very foundations.But the publisher decided to cut the last part of the book, a part that appeared years later as Power and Market This is the section that applies the theory presented in the first 1,000 pages to matters of government intervention. Issue by issue, the book refutes the case for taxation, the welfare state, regulation, economic planning, and all forms of socialism, large and small. It remains an incredibly fruitful assembly of vigorous argumentation and evidence.A major advantage of Man, Economy, and State, in addition to its systematic presentation, is that it is written in the clearest English you will find anywhere in the economics literature. The jargon is kept to a minimum. The prose is crystalline and vigorous. The examples are compelling. No one has explained the formation of prices, the damage of inflation, the process of production, the workings of interest rates, and a hundred of topics, with such energy and clarity.Over years, students have told us that this book is what made it possible for them to get through graduate school. Why? Because Rothbard takes on the mainstream in its own terms and provides a radical, logical, comprehensive answer. If you have read the book, you know the feeling that comes with reaching the last page: one walks away with the sense that one now fully understands economic theory and all its ramifications.It is a shame that the authentic edition of the classic that Rothbard wrote fully 40 years ago is only now coming into print. And yet the good news is that, at last, this remarkable work in the history of ideas, the book that makes such a technically competent, systematic, and sweeping case for the economics of liberty, is at last available.REVIEWSAs the result of many years of sagacious and discerning meditation, [Rothbard] joins the ranks of the eminent economists by publishing a voluminous work, a systematic treatise on economics.... An epochal contribution to the general science of human action, praxeology, and its practically most important and up-to-now best elaborated part, economics. Henceforth all essential studies in in these branches of knowledge will have to take full account of the theories and criticisms expounded by Dr. Rothbard. --Ludwig von MisesIt is in fact the most important general treatise on economic principles since Ludwig von Mises's Human Action in 1949.... --Henry HazlittMan, Economy, and State is Murray Rothbard's main work in economic theory. It appeared in 1962, when Murray was only 36 years old. In it Murray develops the entire body of economic theory, in a step by step fashion, beginning with incontestable axioms and proceeding to the most intricate problems of business cycle theory and fundamental breakthroughs in monopoly theory. And along the way he presents a blistering refutation of all variants of mathematical economics. The book has in the meantime become a modern classic and ranks with Mises's Human Action as one of the two towering achievements of the Austrian School of economics. In Power and Market, Murray analyzed the economic consequences of any conceivable form of government interference in markets. The Scholars Edition brings both books together to form a magnificent whole. --Hans-Hermann HoppeIn 1972, this book was selling in hardback for $130-$150 in current dollars. So the scholar's edition, which includes Power and Market, a great index, plus improved layout, is about a fraction of the cost of the original, for a far better product.

  25. ❤书名:Dark Pools: The Rise of the Machine Traders and the Rigging of the U.S. Stock Market
    作者:Scott Patterson
    出版日期:2012-06-12T00:00:00+00:00
    <p><em />A news-breaking account of the global stock market's subterranean battles, Dark Pools portrays the rise of the "bots"- artificially intelligent systems that execute trades in milliseconds and use the cover of darkness to out-maneuver the humans who've created them.<br /></p><p><em />In the beginning was Josh Levine, an idealistic programming genius who dreamed of wresting control of the market from the big exchanges that, again and again, gave the giant institutions an advantage over the little guy. Levine created a computerized trading hub named Island where small traders swapped stocks, and over time his invention morphed into a global electronic stock market that sent trillions in capital through a vast jungle of fiber-optic cables.  <br /></p><p>By then, the market that Levine had sought to fix had turned upside down, birthing secretive exchanges called dark pools and a new species of trading machines that could think, and that seemed, ominously, to be slipping the control of their human masters. <br /></p><p>Dark Pools is the fascinating story of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots--many so self-directed that humans can't predict what they'll do next.</p><h3>Review</h3><p><strong>“Scott Patterson’s <em>Dark Pools </em>is about the most important financial issue no one talks about—how high-frequency traders have rigged the market.” <br /></strong>--Mark Cuban <br /></p><p><strong>“Remarkable…even long-time participants in electronic markets will learn a lot from this book.”</strong><br />--Forbes<br /><br /><strong>“Richly reported…an invaluable piece of timely journalism that should be read by regulators and anyone with a cent in the stock market...You will never look at the opening bell in the same way.”</strong><br />--Financial Times<br /></p><p>“An engaging narrative…<strong>DARK POOLS is easily the most entertaining and accessible book to cover the new world of stock trading</strong>.”<br />--Fortune<br /><br /><strong>“An education in how markets work, packaged in a thriller worthy of Michael Crichton….</strong><em> Dark Pools </em>is one of those rare books that is a great summer beach read and a useful trading manual.”<br />--Minyanville.com<br /><br /><strong>“Very enjoyable….a good story of how innovators destroy the old guard.”<br /></strong>--BusinessInsider.com<br /><br /><strong>“<em>Dark Pools </em>relays an epic tangle of hacktivists, old-school floor exchanges and traders – all wrestling to game the machines…</strong>The stories engage from chapter to chapter, bringing the reader from the outside in.”<br /><strong>--Seeking Alpha</strong><br /></p><p>“<strong>An entertaining account of the key battles in the “algo wars” and the colorful math geeks who fight them</strong>—some of whom are now fighting to rein in the monsters they created. <em>Dark Pools</em> is an alarming account.”<br />--Canadian Business<br /></p><p><strong>“<em>Dark Pools </em>is a must read for all serious investors.  </strong>Patterson’s methodically researched<strong> </strong>book exposes the core problems in today’s securities market…His findings should serve as a blueprint for the SEC.”<strong> </strong><br />--Blair Hull, founder of Hull Trading and Ketchum Trading </p><p><em>From the Hardcover edition.</em></p><h3>About the Author</h3><p>SCOTT PATTERSON is a staff reporter at the Wall Street Journal, covering government regulation from the nation's capital. </p>

  26. ❤书名:Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change and Thrive in Work and Life
    作者:Susan David
    出版日期:2016-04-06T23:00:00+00:00
    <div><p><strong>'Essential reading.' - Susan Cain, author of *Quiet</strong>* </p>
    <p>Every day we speak around 16,000 words - but inside our minds we create tens of thousands more. Thoughts such as 'I'm not spending enough time with my children' or 'I'm not good enough to present my work' can seem to be unshakable facts. In reality, they're the judgemental opinions of our inner voice. </p>
    <p>Drawing on more than twenty years of academic research, consulting, and her own experiences overcoming adversity, Susan David PhD, a psychologist and faculty member at Harvard Medical School, has pioneered a new way to enable us to make peace with our inner self, achieve our most valued goals, make real change, and live life to the fullest. </p>
    <p>Susan David has found that emotionally agile people experience the same stresses and setbacks as anyone else. The difference is the emotionally agile know how to unhook themselves from unhelpful patterns, and how to create values-based success with better habits and behaviours. </p>
    <p><em>Emotional Agility</em> describes a new way of living and relating to yourself and the world around you. Become aware of your true nature, learn to face your emotions with acceptance and generosity, act according to your deepest values, and flourish. </p>
    <p><strong>'An accessible, reader-friendly voyage. Emotional Agility can be helpful to anyone.' - Daniel Goleman, author of *Emotional Intelligence</strong>* </p>
    <p><strong>Susan David</strong> has a PhD in psychology and a post-doctorate in emotions research from Yale. She is a psychologist at the Harvard Medical School and a founder and director at the Harvard/McLean-affiliated Institute of Coaching. Susan is the CEO of Evidence Based Psychology, whose worldwide client list includes Ernst and Young Global, the UN Development Program, JP Morgan Chase and GlaxoSmithKline. She has edited a number of books including the <em>Oxford Handbook of Happiness </em>and her research has featured in the<em>Harvard Business Review</em>, <em>TIME</em> and the <em>Wall Street Journal</em>. Born in South Africa, Susan now lives in Boston with her family.</p><hr><p style="font-family: 'MS Shell Dlg 2';"><strong>The counterintuitive approach to achieving your true potential, heralded by the <em>Harvard Business Review</em> as a groundbreaking idea of the year.</strong><br><br>The path to personal and professional fulfillment is rarely straight. Ask anyone who has achieved his or her biggest goals or whose relationships thrive and you’ll hear stories of many unexpected detours along the way. What separates those who master these challenges and those who get derailed? The answer is agility—emotional agility.</p><p style="font-family: 'MS Shell Dlg 2';">Emotional agility is a revolutionary, science-based approach that allows us to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind. Renowned psychologist Susan David developed this concept after studying emotions, happiness, and achievement for more than twenty years. She found that no matter how intelligent or creative people are, or what type of personality they have, it is how they navigate their inner world—their thoughts, feelings, and self-talk—that ultimately determines how successful they will become.</p><p style="font-family: 'MS Shell Dlg 2';">The way we respond to these internal experiences drives our actions, careers, relationships, happiness, health—everything that matters in our lives. As humans, we are all prone to common hooks—things like self-doubt, shame, sadness, fear, or anger—that can too easily steer us in the wrong direction. Emotionally agile people are not immune to stresses and setbacks. The key difference is that they know how to adapt, aligning their actions with their values and making small but powerful changes that lead to a lifetime of growth. Emotional agility is not about ignoring difficult emotions and thoughts; it’s about holding them loosely, facing them courageously and compassionately, and then moving past them to bring the best of yourself forward.</p><p style="font-family: 'MS Shell Dlg 2';">Drawing on her deep research, decades of international consulting, and her own experience overcoming adversity after losing her father at a young age, David shows how anyone can thrive in an uncertain world by becoming more emotionally agile. To guide us, she shares four key concepts that allow us to acknowledge uncomfortable experiences while simultaneously detaching from them, thereby allowing us to embrace our core values and adjust our actions so they can move us where we truly want to go.</p><p style="font-family: 'MS Shell Dlg 2';">Written with authority, wit, and empathy, Emotional Agility serves as a road map for real behavioral change—a new way of acting that will help you reach your full potential, whoever you are and whatever you face.</p></div>

From why the coffee in your cup costs so much to why efficiency is not necessarily the answer to ensuring a fair society, from improving health care to curing crosstown traffic–all the dirty little secrets of dollars and cents are delightfully revealed by <em>The Undercover Economist</em>. </p><p>“A rare specimen: a book on economics that will enthrall its readers . . . It brings the power of economics to life.”<br>–Steven D. Levitt, coauthor of _Freakonomics<br>_<br>“A playful guide to the economics of everyday life, and as such is something of an elder sibling to Steven Levitt’s wild child, the hugely successful Freakonomics.”<br>–_The Economist_ </p><p>“A tour de force . . .

While the concepts explored are those encountered in Microeconomics 101, Harford gracefully explains abstruse ideas like pricing along the demand curve and game theory using real world examples without relying on graphs or jargon. The book addresses free market economic theory, but Harford is not a complete apologist for capitalism; he shows how companies from Amazon.com to Whole Foods to Starbucks have gouged consumers through guerrilla pricing techniques and explains the high rents in London (it has more to do with agriculture than one might think). Harford comes down soft on Chinese sweatshops, acknowledging "conditions in factories are terrible," but "sweatshops are better than the horrors that came before them, and a step on the road to something better." Perhaps, but Harford doesn't question whether communism or a capitalist-style industrial revolution are the only two choices available in modern economies. That aside, the book is unequaled in its accessibility and ability to show how free market economic forces affect readers' day-to-day.<br>Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. <br>From <em>Bookmarks Magazine</em><br>Harford exposes the dark underbelly of capitalism in <em>Undercover Economist</em>. Compared with Steven Levitt’s and Stephen J. Dubner’s popular <em>Freakonomics </em>(*<em></em> July/Aug 2005), the book uses simple, playful examples (written in plain English) to elucidate complex economic theories. Critics agree that the book will grip readers interested in understanding free-market forces but disagree about Harford’s approach. Some thought the author mastered the small ideas while keeping in sight the larger context of globalization; others faulted Harford for failing to criticize certain economic theories and to ground his arguments in political, organizational structures. Either way, his case studies—some entertaining, others indicative of times to come—will make you think twice about that cup of coffee. <br>Copyright © 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc. </p></div>

  30. ❤书名:On the Make - The Hustle of Urban Nightlife
    作者:David Grazian
    出版日期:2011-08-14
    From Publishers Weekly:
    His interest in club life undiminished, sociologist Grazian (Blue Chicago: The Search for Authenticity in Urban Blues Clubs) ventures into after-hours Philadelphia for a dishy yet savvy tell-all that brings the city's network of pubs and hotspots fully to life, complete with a host of partiers eager to share. Populated in large part by a 100,000-plus student population, Grazian strips bare the social life of young Philly to reveal "pre-game" prep rituals (dressing, fraternizing, drinking), on-location angst (to appear cool and worldly) and wary assessment of older patrons among them (dinosaurs in their late twenties and beyond). Grazian also brings to life the "hustle" of the industry in vibrant profiles of nightlife institutions, "including the staging of... interiors, the scripting of interactions with customers, the exploitation of attractive women workers, the engineering of creative publicity and... reality-based marketing schemes," showing how these efforts combine to produce the lucrative, exciting and often risky appeal at the heart of the scene. Taking readers to strip clubs, gay bars, the poshest of the posh and a few dives for good measure, this book is a bit like a month of free nights out: the pleasure of the hustle without any of the hassle.

  32. ❤书名:Thinking in Systems: A Primer
    作者:Donella H. Meadows
    出版日期:2008-12-02
    <div><p>In the years following her role as the lead author of the international bestseller, <em>Limits to Growth</em>―the first book to show the consequences of unchecked growth on a finite planet― Donella Meadows remained a pioneer of environmental and social analysis until her untimely death in 2001.</p>
    <p><em>Thinking in Systems</em>, is a concise and crucial book offering insight for problem solving on scales ranging from the personal to the global. Edited by the Sustainability Institute’s Diana Wright, this essential primer brings systems thinking out of the realm of computers and equations and into the tangible world, showing readers how to develop the systems-thinking skills that thought leaders across the globe consider critical for 21st-century life.</p>
    <p>Some of the biggest problems facing the world―war, hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation―are essentially system failures. They cannot be solved by fixing one piece in isolation from the others, because even seemingly minor details have enormous power to undermine the best efforts of too-narrow thinking.</p>
    <p>While readers will learn the conceptual tools and methods of systems thinking, the heart of the book is grander than methodology. Donella Meadows was known as much for nurturing positive outcomes as she was for delving into the science behind global dilemmas. She reminds readers to pay attention to what is important, not just what is quantifiable, to stay humble, and to stay a learner.</p>
    <p>In a world growing ever more complicated, crowded, and interdependent, <em>Thinking in Systems</em> helps readers avoid confusion and helplessness, the first step toward finding proactive and effective solutions.</p>
    <p>**</p><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3>
    <p>Starred Review. Just before her death, scientist, farmer and leading environmentalist Meadows (1941-2001) completed an updated, 30th anniversary edition of her influential 1972 environmental call to action, Limits to Growth, as well as a draft of this book, in which she explains the methodology-systems analysis-she used in her ground-breaking work, and how it can be implemented for large-scale and individual problem solving. With humorous and commonplace examples for difficult concepts such as a "reinforcing feedback loop," (the more one brother pushes, the more the other brother pushes back), negative feedback (as in thermostats), accounting for delayed response (like in maintaining store inventory), Meadows leads readers through the increasingly complex ways that feedback loops operate to create self-organizing systems, in nature ("from viruses to redwood trees") and human endeavor. Further, Meadows explicates methods for fixing systems that have gone haywire ("The world's leaders are correctly fixated on economic growth ...but they're pushing with all their might in the wrong direction"). An invaluable companion piece to Limits to Growth, this is also a useful standalone overview of systems-based problem solving, "a simple book about a complex world" graced by the wisdom of a profound thinker committed to "shaping a better future." <br>

    <p><strong><em>Publishers Weekly</em>, Starred Review-</strong> </p>
    <p>Just before her death, scientist, farmer and leading environmentalist Meadows (1941-2001) completed an updated, 30th anniversary edition of her influential 1972 environmental call to action, <em>Limits to Growth</em>, as well as a draft of this book, in which she explains the methodology-systems analysis-she used in her ground-breaking work, and how it can be implemented for large-scale and individual problem solving.

    <p>"When I read <em>Thinking in Systems</em> I am reminded of the enormity of the gap between systemic thinkers and policy makers. If this book helps narrow the gap, it will be Dana's greatest contribution."<strong>--Lester Brown, founder and President, Earth Policy Institute</strong></p>
    <p>"Dana Meadows' exposition in this book exhibits a degree of clarity and simplicity that can only be attained by one who profoundly and honestly understands the subject at hand--in this case systems modeling. Many thanks to Diana Wright for bringing this extra legacy from Dana to us."<strong>--Herman Daly, Professor, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland at College Park</strong></p>
    <p>"Reading <em>Thinking in Systems</em> evokes the wisdom and even the voice of Dana Meadows. We are reminded of how she was not only one of the great systems thinkers, but also one of our greatest teachers. This is modestly called a primer, and indeed it is, but unlike most books with that title, this one quickly takes one from the elementary into deep systems thinking about issues as critical today as they were when Dana wrote these words. The discussion of oil use and the interaction of its extraction pattern with economic decision making should be required reading for all energy policy makers and energy company executives (as well as all informed citizens in a democracy). The fisheries case reminds us of how little any government or private actor has done to grasp the importance of takeout flows in determining stocks when the input flows are not within our control. The commentary on economics and, yes the need to consider limits, is a clear systems statement that clarifies a great deal of discussion that goes back to <em>The Limits to Growth</em>.</p>
    <p>It is remarkable that Dana is able to explain with such clarity such systems concepts of stocks, flows, feedback, time delays, resilience, bounded rationality, and system boundaries and to illustrate each one with multiple informative examples. Her statement that goals that optimize subsystems will sub optimize the functioning of the total system, is truly profound. As the book moves from the 'mechanics' of systems dynamics to Dana's more philosophical perspective, we are treated to her inherent belief in human values that consider the good of all, and how much more effective considering the needs of others is likely to be in solving larger, complex problems. The universe and our society may be very complex and operate in counterintuitive, non-liner fashion, but following the insights of this book and applying them will provide for far more effective solutions to the challenges of a 7 billion person planet than current incremental, linear responses by governments, corporations and individuals."<strong>--Bill Moomaw, Professor of International Environmental Policy at the Fletcher School, Tufts University</strong></p>
    <p>"In Dana Meadows's brilliantly integrative worldview, everything causes everything else; cause and effect loop back on themselves. She was the clearest thinker and writer co-creating the art and science of systems dynamics, and <em>Thinking in Systems</em> distills her lifetime of wisdom. This clear, fun-to-read synthesis will help diverse readers everywhere to grasp and harness how our complex world really works."<strong>--Amory B. Lovins, Chairman and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute</strong></p>
    <p>"Dana Meadows taught a generation of students, friends, and colleagues the art and science of thinking beyond conventional boundaries. For her systems thinking included the expected things like recognizing patterns, connections, leverage points, feedback loops and also the human qualities of judgment, foresight, and kindness. She was a teacher with insight and heart. This long anticipated book, the distillation of her life's work, is a gem."<strong>--David Orr, Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics, Oberlin College</strong></p>
    <p>"The publication of <em>Thinking in Systems</em> is a landmark. To live sustainably on our planet, we must learn to understand human-environment interactions as complex systems marked by the impact of human actions, the prominence of nonlinear change, the importance of initial conditions, and the significance of emergent properties. Dana Meadows' final contribution is the best and most accessible introduction to this way of thinking we have. This book is destined to shape our understanding of socio-ecological systems in the years to come in much the same way that Silent Spring taught us to understand the nature of ecosystems in the 1960s and 1970s."<strong>--Oran R. Young, Professor, Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at University of California, Santa Barbara</strong></p>
    <p>"<em>Thinking in Systems</em> is required reading for anyone hoping to run a successful company, community, or country. Learning how to think in systems is now part of change-agent literacy. And this is the best book of its kind."<strong>--Hunter Lovins, founder and President of Natural Capital Solutions and coauthor of *Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution</strong>*</p>
    <p>"Dana Meadows was one of the smartest people I ever knew, able to figure out the sensible answer to almost any problem. This book explains how she thought, and hence is of immense value to those of us who often wonder what she'd make of some new problem. A classic."<strong>--Bill McKibben, author of *Deep Economy</strong>*</p>
    <p>"An inspiring sequel to Dana Meadows' lifetime of seminal contributions to systems thinking, this highly accessible book should be read by everyone concerned with the world's future and how we can make it as good as it possibly can be."<strong>--Peter H. Raven, President, Missouri Botanical Garden</strong></p>

  33. ❤书名:Wait: The Art and Science of Delay
    作者:Frank Partnoy
    出版日期:2012-06-26T00:00:00+00:00
    <p>What do these scenarios have in common: a professional tennis player returning a serve, a woman evaluating a first date across the table, a naval officer assessing a threat to his ship, and a comedian about to reveal a punch line?</p><p>In this counterintuitive and insightful work, author Frank Partnoy weaves together findings from hundreds of scientific studies and interviews with wide-ranging experts to craft a picture of effective decision-making that runs counter to our brutally fast-paced world. Even as technology exerts new pressures to speed up our lives, it turns out that the choices we make––unconsciously and consciously, in time frames varying from milliseconds to years––benefit profoundly from delay. As this winning and provocative book reveals, taking control of time and slowing down our responses yields better results in almost every arena of life … even when time seems to be of the essence.</p><p>The procrastinator in all of us will delight in Partnoy’s accounts of celebrity “delay specialists,” from Warren Buffett to Chris Evert to Steve Kroft, underscoring the myriad ways in which delaying our reactions to everyday choices––large and small––can improve the quality of our lives.</p><h3>Review</h3><p><strong>A <em>Fast Company</em> Best Business Book of 2012</strong></p><p><strong>Roger Lowenstein, author of <em>The End of Wall Street</em> and *When Genius Failed<br /></strong><em>“Having mined the best of American research in fields as wide-ranging as finance, behavioral economics, and law, Frank Partnoy has written a beguilingly readable treatise that boils down to a single, easily digestible conclusion: in our busy modern lives, most of us react too quickly. </em>Wait<em> will naturally and rightly be compared to Daniel Kahneman’s </em>Thinking, Fast and Slow* as a trail-blazing book exploring the hidden crannies and the treacherous pitfalls of human decision-making. I whole-heartedly recommend it."</p><p><strong>Bethany McLean, co-author of *The</strong> Smartest Guys in the Room<em> and </em>All the Devils Are Here<br /><em /><em>“</em>Wait* is one of those rare books that will change not just the way you think, but the way you act. The book is full of ideas that are fascinating, useful—and at times mind-blowing. I was captivated.”</p><p><strong>Daniel H. Pink, author of <em>Drive</em> and *A Whole New Mind</strong><em>“Frank Partnoy turns conventional wisdom on its head with this counterintuitive approach to decision-making. Rather than telling us how to make decisions faster and faster, he mines and refines a rich lode of information from experts in a surprising variety of fields to demonstrate the power of delay, whether measured in milliseconds, days, or decades. </em>Wait* is a great read, chock full of fascinating insights.”</p><p><strong><em>Kirkus Reviews,</em> starred review</strong><br />“A fascinating addition to the study of decision-making…. While there is a high premium today for speed, the author suggests that there are serious downsides to rapid decision-making.… Partnoy’s results are groundbreaking and a potential corrective to modern pressures for rapid response, whether on the playing field, in high-speed computer trading and corporate boardrooms, or on the battlefield…. File alongside Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Ariely, [and] Jonah Lehrer.”</p><p><strong><em>Strategy + Business</em></strong>“Gladwell-esque … the book uses case studies of ‘delay specialists’ in realms as varied as stand-up comedy and warfare, extending the implications of postponing responses in order to improve outcomes in every part of our business and personal lives. Procrastinators everywhere will rejoice.” <strong><em>Washington Post Express</em></strong><em>"</em>Citing fascinating studies in tennis serves and first dates, [Partnoy] deftly makes a case for exercising something we could all use more of: patience. Plus, you gotta love a guy who dedicates his book to his golden retriever.”</p><p><strong>Jack Covert,</strong> <strong><em>800-CEO-READS<br /></em></strong>“Well-written…. Chapter Three is particularly fascinating in its implications for how we make decisions and manage the world.”<br /></p><p><strong>Margaret Heffernan, *CBS Money Watch</strong><br /><em /><em>“Marvelous … </em>Wait *is an impassioned and thought-provoking book."</p><p><strong>Christopher Chabris*, <strong><em /></strong>Wall Street Journal</strong><em><br />“Mr. Partnoy's intention in </em>Wait* is to take on those who evangelize the power of thinking quickly, ‘getting things done’ and leading an organized life. We can praise efficiency but fail to take note of what is sacrificed in its name. Wait offers a valuable counterweight to this attitude, reminding us that quality should matter as much as speed."</p><p><strong><em>Economist</em></strong><br />“A popular new book…. Mr Partnoy argues that too many people fail to recognize what good public speakers and comedians all understand: that success depends on knowing when to delay, and for how long.”</p><p><strong><em>Financial Times</em></strong>“A superior example of the genre. It is a departure from his earlier books about financial crises, but written with the same easy elegance. ... Partnoy makes mincemeat of the idea of ‘thin slicing’ – the art of making snap decisions based on very little information – that was made so popular by Malcolm Gladwell in <em>Blink</em>. ... As a collection of fascinating case studies, <em>Wait</em> is a gem." <strong><em>Winnipeg Free Press</em></strong>“[Partnoy’s] latest offering is a skeptical response to Malcolm Gladwell's 2005 bestseller, <em>Blink</em>... Partnoy spends a lot of time synthesizing recent scholarship, providing clear and accessible accounts of work in an impressive range of academic fields. While the breadth and the depth of his research gives the book's rather straightforward message its complexity and rhetorical power, the book's charm comes from Partnoy's ability to juggle such seemingly disparate topics as, on the one hand, an engaging discussion of recent science on animals and their conceptualization of future time and, on the other hand, an unabashedly doting analysis of the comic timing of Jon Stewart.”<br /></p><p><strong><em>Minneapolis Star-Tribune<br /></em></strong>“Partnoy draws on the latest research in neuroscience and behavioral economics to provide a delightful, insightful and often surprising ‘Wait, wait, do tell me’ account of decision-making in many areas of everyday life, ranging from sports to surgery to speed-dating and stock-picking…. <em>Wait</em> is chock-full of arresting insights about the complexities of decision-making"<br /></p><p><strong><em>Creditcards.com<br /></em></strong>"A lively, reader-friendly survey of scientific research into the pros and cons of rapid decision-making."<br /></p><p><strong><em>Bloomberg<br /></em></strong>“An intellectual romp through the science of how timing influences human decision-making.”<br /></p><p><strong><em>Washington Post<br /></em></strong>“Fascinating, engaging…. This isn’t a book of platitudes, but one built on one simple imperative. Partnoy just wants us to think before we act or speak. <em>Wait</em> serves as excellent reminder that, when humanly possible, it’s best not to hurry.”<br /></p><h3>About the Author</h3><p>FRANK PARTNOY is the George E. Barrett Professor of Law and Finance and is the director of the Center on Corporate and Securities Law at the University of San Diego.

  36. ❤书名:Red Sparrow: A Novel
    作者:Jason Matthews
    出版日期:2013-06-01T05:00:00+00:00
    <div><p><strong>IN THE GRAND SPY-TALE TRADITION OF JOHN LE CARRÉ…comes this shocking debut thriller written with insider detail known only to a veteran CIA officer.</strong></p><p>In present-day Russia, ruled by blue-eyed, unblinking President Vladimir Putin, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the post-Soviet intelligence jungle. Ordered against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress, Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a young CIA officer who handles the Agency’s most important Russian mole.</p><p>Spies have long relied on the “honey trap,” whereby vulnerable men and women are intimately compromised. Dominika learns these techniques of “sexpionage” in Russia’s secret “Sparrow School,” hidden outside of Moscow. As the action careens between Russia, Finland, Greece, Italy, and the United States, Dominika and Nate soon collide in a duel of wills, tradecraft, and—inevitably—forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but those of others as well. As secret allegiances are made and broken, Dominika and Nate’s game reaches a deadly crossroads. Soon one of them begins a dangerous double existence in a life-and-death operation that consumes intelligence agencies from Moscow to Washington, DC.</p><p>Page by page, veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews’s <em>Red Sparrow</em> delights and terrifies and fascinates, all while delivering an unforgettable cast, from a sadistic Spetsnaz “mechanic” who carries out Putin’s murderous schemes to the weary CIA Station Chief who resists Washington “cake-eaters” to MARBLE, the priceless Russian mole. Packed with insider detail and written with brio, this tour-de-force novel brims with Matthews’s life experience, including his knowledge of espionage, counterintelligence, surveillance tradecraft, spy recruitment, cyber-warfare, the Russian use of “spy dust,” and covert communications. Brilliantly composed and elegantly constructed, <em>Red Sparrow</em> is a masterful spy tale lifted from the dossiers of intelligence agencies on both sides of the Atlantic. Authentic, tense, and entertaining, this novel introduces Jason Matthews as a major new American talent.</p><h3>Amazon.com Review</h3><h4>Doug Stanton on <em>Red Sparrow </em>by Jason Matthews</h4><p><strong>Doug Stanton is a teacher, lecturer, and author of the New York Times bestsellers <em>In Harm’s Way</em> and <em>Horse Soldiers</em>. His writing has appeared in Esquire, The New York Times, The New York Times Book Review, TIME, the Washington Post, Men’s Journal, Outside, The Daily Beast/Newsweek. Stanton has appeared multiple times on the Today Show, CNN, Imus In The Morning, Discovery, A&E, Fox News, NPR, MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and NBC Nightly News. <em>Horse Soldiers</em> is in development as a movie by Jerry Bruckheimer Films. Stanton reads and lectures nationally to business, civic groups, libraries, writing & book clubs, and universities, including the United States Air Force Academy, University of Michigan, and The Union League Club. Stanton attended Interlochen Arts Academy, Hampshire College, and received an MFA from the Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa, where he graduated with coursework in both fiction and poetry workshops. He founded the National Writers Series, a book festival; and the Front Street Writers Studio, a free writing workshop for public high school students.</strong></p><p>The spy-thriller is back in full force thanks to newcomer and CIA insider Jason Matthews.</p><p>Set in unnervingly accurate present-day Russia, where Putin’s influence is omnipresent, <em>Red Sparrow</em> follows two intelligence officers who are targeted against each other: Nate Nash, a young, ambitious, sometimes naive CIA officer, and Dominika Egorova, a willful, beautiful Russian ballerina turned spy due to unfortunate circumstances. When we first meet Nate he is beginning the most important job of his fledgling career—handling MARBLE, a high-ranking Russian intelligence officer who is giving information to the Americans, largely considered to be the CIA’s most valuable asset—while Dominika’s first foray in the field is off to a more tenuous start. After being injured and thus forced to leave her beloved ballet, her uncle, a high ranking state intelligence official lures her in, eventually forcing her to attend “Sparrow School” to train as an espionage courtesan. After successfully finishing her training, Dominika is sent to Helsinki where the young Nate has taken up residence after a near disaster in Moscow. The Russians had discovered that he was gaining inside information, tipping them off to the existence of a high-level mole. Dominika is charged with the task of discovering the mole’s identity by getting close to Nash—a delectable honey trap for the brash American. What begins as a relatively simple assignment leads to a development of fatal double lives, dangerous spy games, and treacherous secrets. As the two face-off, tentatively making moves, Dominika begins to learn the true nature of those who control her, and suddenly Nate and the people he works for begin to look more and more attractive. Disappointed and humiliated by her handlers, and with nowhere to turn, Dominika is recruited by Nate (or is she?). Against the rules, the two fall in and out of bed in various cities, and come close to falling dangerously in love. They struggle mightily to trust each other, and to trust themselves.</p><p>I read till 11 and woke up at 5 a.m. three days in a row to finish this book as fast as I possibly could. If it doesn't supplant <em>The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo</em> as the next mammoth read, and if it doesn't take its place alongside le Carre's <em>The Spy Who Came In From the Cold</em>, the love of literature and jaw-dropping thrills really is dead. When I finished the book the day was just dawning, as it always is in this novel, only in the novel the fated characters, filled with melancholy, romance, venom, and belly-aching humor (this book can be laugh out loud funny), are usually eating well and wondering when it'll be lights out for them. Jason Matthews has "reported" this book for 30 years, working it all out in the "real world," and one wonders who he is, mostly: the young, "naive" Nate Nash; the knock-out, petulant heroine Dominika, whom Quentin Tarantino and Doctor Zhivago both might've loved; or the Gus Grissom-like Gable, a CIA chief who dispenses life-lessons to the young Nate—a muscled hen clucking and stirring a bubbling sauce over a stove. There is not a false note in the amazing ventriloquisms that are the conjurer's art we call literature. There are sentences as exciting to read as Eliot's "The Wasteland" (cf. the description of a moist, pale toadie scuttling along a hall; downright spooky, an image I cannot get rid of); or the majestic, floor-board creaking opening of Cormac McCarthy's <em>All The Pretty Horses</em>. The granular sweep of the authorial vision is a telescope still warm from Tolstoy's hands. There's a scene in here better by ten than Bogart looking down at Ingrid. I learned as much about the former Soviets and the new Russians, and our U.S. of A., as I have ever gleaned from the hardest working journalists writing today. Halfway through, I was afraid Vladimir Putin would find out I was reading <em>Red Sparrow</em> and have me arrested. With its ripped-from-the headlines appeal, real life spy craft details, and thrilling international action that takes us to Helsinki, Moscow, Athens, Rome, and Washington, D.C., I have to say that I have not read a more exciting, gripping novel in a long time. And the best part is this: the ending of this novel makes it clear that this isn’t the last we’ll be hearing from Jason Matthews.</p><h3>Review</h3><p>“A great and dangerous spy-game is being played today between Russian intelligence and the CIA. Very few people know about it, including many of our politicians in Washington. But Jason Matthews does, and his thrilling <em>Red Sparrow</em> takes us deep inside this treacherous world. He’s an insider’s insider. He knows the secrets. And he is also a masterful story-teller. I loved this book and could not put it down. Neither will you.” </p><p>(Vince Flynn)<br></p><p>“I read till eleven and woke up at five a.m. to finish this book. If it doesn’t supplant <em>The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo </em>as the next mammoth read, ad if it doesn’t take its place alongside le Carré’s <em>The Spy Who Came in from the Cold</em>, the love of literature and jaw-dropping thrills really is dead. I learned more about the former Soviets and the new Russians, and about our US of A, than I ever gleaned from the hardest-working journalists today. Halfway through, I was afraid Vladimir Putin would find out I was reading <em>Red Sparrow </em>and have me arrested. I have not read a more exciting, gripping novel in a long time.” (Doug Stanton <em>author of Horse Soldiers</em>)<br></p><p>"Not since the good old days of the Cold War has a classic spy thriller like RED SPARROW come along. Jason Matthews is not making it up; he has lived this life and this story, and it shows on every page. High-level espionage, pulse-pounding danger, sex, double agents and double crosses. What more can any reader want?" (Nelson DeMille)<br></p><p>“Matthews’s exceptional first novel will please fans of classic spy fiction…The author’s 33-year career in the CIA allows him to showcase all the tradecraft and authenticity that readers in this genre demand…[a] complex, high-stakes plot.” (<em>Publishers Weekly<em>, starred review</em>)<br></em></p><p><em>“Matthews’ first novel, a globe-trotting spy thriller, features enough action to satisfy even the most demanding of adrenaline junkies…The author’s CIA background and the smart dialogue make this an entertaining tale for spy-novel enthusiasts.” (<strong>Kirkus</strong>)<br></em></p><p><em>“The author, a veteran CIA field agent, liberally salts his thriller with realistic tradecraft, horrific villainy, and stunning plot twists as the opponents vie for control…An intense descent into a vortex of carnal passion, career brutality, and smart tradecraft, this thriller evokes the great Cold War era of espionage…Readers of bloodthirsty spy and suspense will welcome this debut from a writer who supersizes his spies.” (<em>Library Journal <em>(starred review)</em>)<br></em></em></p><p><em><em>"All the tradecraft and cat-and-mouse tension of a classic spy thriller— a terrific read." </em></em></p><p><em><em>(Joseph Kanon <em>author of Instanbul</em>) </em></em></p></div>

  37. ❤书名:Even the Wicked: A Matthew Scudder Novel (Matthew Scudder Mysteries Book 13)
    作者:Lawrence Block
    出版日期:1996-01-02T05:00:00+00:00
    <div><h3>About the Author</h3><p>Lawrence Block is one of the most widely recognized names in the mystery genre. He has been named a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and is a four-time winner of the prestigious Edgar and Shamus Awards, as well as a recipient of prizes in France, Germany, and Japan. He received the Diamond Dagger from the British Crime Writers' Association—only the third American to be given this award. He is a prolific author, having written more than fifty books and numerous short stories, and is a devoted New Yorker and an enthusiastic global traveler. </p><h3>Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.</h3><p>On a Tuesday night in August I was sitting in the living room with TJ, watching two guys hit each other on one of the Spanish-language cable channels, and enjoying the fresh air more than the fight. A heat wave had punished the city for two weeks, finally breaking over the weekend. Since then we'd had three perfect days, with bright blue skies and low humidity and the temperature in the seventies. You'd have called it ideal weather anywhere; in the middle of a New York summer, you could only call it a miracle. </p><p>I'd spent the day taking advantage of the weather, walking around the city. I got home and showered in time to drop into a chair and let Peter Jennings explain the world to me. Elaine joined me for the first fifteen minutes, then went into the kitchen to start dinner. TJ dropped by just around the time she was adding the pasta to the boiling water, insisting that he wasn't hungry and couldn't stay long anyway. Elaine, who had heard this song before, doubled the recipe on the spot, and TJ let himself be persuaded to take a plate and clean it several times. </p><p>"Trouble is," he told her, "you too good of a cook. Now on, I wait to come by until mealtimes is come and gone. I don't watch out, I be fat." </p><p>He has a ways to go. He's a street kid, lean and limber, indistinguishable at first glance from any of the young blacks you'll see hanging around Times Square, shilling for the monte dealers, running short cons, looking for a way to get over, or just to get by. He's much more than that as well, but for all I know there may be more to many of them than meets the eye. He's the one I know; with the others, all I get to see is what's on the surface. And TJ's own surface, for that matter, is apt to change, chameleon like, with his surroundings. I have watched him slip effortlessly from hip-hop street patter to a Brooks Brothers accent that would not be out of place on an Ivy League campus. His hairstyle, too, has varied over the several years I've known him, ranging from an old-style Afro through assorted versions of the high-top fade. A year or so ago he started helping Elaine at her shop, and on his own decided that a kinder, gentler 'do was more appropriate. He's kept it cropped relatively short ever since, while his dress ranges from the preppy outfits he wears to work to the in-your-face attire they favor on the Deuce. This evening he was dressed for success in khakis and a button-down shirt. A day or two earlier, when I'd seen him last, he was a vision in baggy camo trousers and a sequined jacket. </p><p>"Wish they was speakin' English," he complained. "Why they got to talk in Spanish?" </p><p>"It's better this way,'' I said. </p><p>"You tellin' me you know what they sayin'?'' </p><p>"A word here and there. Mostly it's just noise." </p><p>"And that's how you like it?" </p><p>"The English-speaking announcers talk too much," I said. </p><p>"They're afraid the audience won't be able to figure out what's going on if they're not chattering away all the time. And they say the same things over and over. 'He's not working hard enough to establish the left jab.' I don't think I've watched five fights in the past ten years when the announcer hasn't observed that the fighter should be using the jab more. It must be the first thing they teach them in broadcasting school." </p><p>"Maybe this dude sayin' the same thing in Spanish." </p><p>"Maybe he is," I agreed, "but since I don't have a clue what he's saying it can't get on my nerves." </p><p>"You ever heard of the mute, Newt?" </p><p>"Not the same. You need the crowd noise, need to hear the punches land." </p><p>"These two ain't landin' many." </p><p>"Blame the one in the blue shorts," I said. "He's not working hard enough to establish the left jab." </p><p>He did enough to win the four-round prelim, though, getting a decision and a round of perfunctory applause from the crowd. Next on the card was a ten-round welterweight bout, a classic matchup of quick light-hitting youth against a strong puncher a couple of years past his prime. The old guy - I think he was all of thirty-four - was able to stun the kid when he landed a clean shot, but the years had slowed him some and he missed more often than he connected. In return, the kid peppered him with a barrage of blows that didn't have much on them. </p><p>"He pretty slick," TJ said, after a couple of rounds. </p><p>"Too bad he doesn't have a punch." </p><p>"He just keep at you, wear you down. Meanwhile he pilin' up the points. Other dude, he be tirin' more with each round." </p><p>"If we understood Spanish," I said, "we could listen to the announcer saying pretty much the same thing. If I were betting this fight I'd put my money on the old guy." </p><p>"Ain't no surprise. You ancient dudes has got to stick together. You think we need any of this here?" </p><p>"This here" was the line of goods in the Gehlen catalog. The Gehlen Company is an outfit in Elyria, Ohio, offering electronic espionage equipment, gear to bug other people's phones and offices, gear to keep one's own phones and offices bug-free. There's a curiously bipolar quality to the whole enterprise; they are, after all, promoting half their line as a defense against the other half, and the catalog copy keeps changing philosophical horses in midstream. "Knowledge is power," they assure you on one page, and two pages later they're championing "your most basic right - the right to personal and corporate privacy." Back and forth the argument rages, from "You have a right to know!" to "Keep their noses out of your business!" </p><p>Where, you have to wonder, do the company's sympathies lie? Given that their namesake was the legendary German intelligence chief, I figured they'd happily sell anything to anybody, committed only to increasing their sales and maximizing their profits. But would any of their wares increase my sales or boost my profits? </p><p>"I think we can probably get by without it," I told TJ. </p><p>"How we gonna catch Will without all the latest technology?" </p><p>"We're not." </p><p>"'Cause he ain't our problem?" </p><p>"Not as far as I can tell." </p><p>"Dude's the whole city's problem. All they talkin' about, everywhere you go. Will this and Will that." </p><p>"He was the headline story in the Post again today," I said, "and they didn't have any news to back it up, because he hasn't done anything since last week. But they want to keep him on the front page to sell papers, so the story was about how the city's nervous, waiting for something to happen." </p><p>"That's all they wrote?" </p><p>"They tried to put it in historical context. Other faceless killers who've caught the public imagination, like Son of Sam." </p><p>"Be a difference," he said. "Wasn't nobody cheerin' for Son of Sam." </p></div>

    <p>In the century after the Civil War, an economic revolution improved the American standard of living in ways previously unimaginable. Electric lighting, indoor plumbing, home appliances, motor vehicles, air travel, air conditioning, and television transformed households and workplaces. With medical advances, life expectancy between 1870 and 1970 grew from forty-five to seventy-two years. Weaving together a vivid narrative, historical anecdotes, and economic analysis, <em>The Rise and Fall of American Growth</em> provides an in-depth account of this momentous era. But has that era of unprecedented growth come to an end?</p>
    <p>Gordon challenges the view that economic growth can or will continue unabated, and he demonstrates that the life-altering scale of innovations between 1870 and 1970 can't be repeated. He contends that the nation's productivity growth, which has already slowed to a crawl, will be further held back by the vexing headwinds of rising inequality, stagnating education, an aging population, and the rising debt of college students and the federal government. Gordon warns that the younger generation may be the first in American history that fails to exceed their parents' standard of living, and that rather than depend on the great advances of the past, we must find new solutions to overcome the challenges facing us.</p>
    <p>A critical voice in the debates over economic stagnation, <em>The Rise and Fall of American Growth</em> is at once a tribute to a century of radical change and a harbinger of tougher times to come.</p>
    <p>**</p></html><h3>Review</h3>
    <p>"A masterful study to be read and reread by anyone interested in today's political economy."<strong>--*Kirkus</strong>* </p>
    <p>"[A]n essential read for anyone interested not only in US economic history but also American economic prospects . . . a tremendous achievement."<strong>--Diane Coyle, *Enlightened Economist</strong>* </p>
    <p>"Normally, these kinds of big-think books end with a whimper, as the author totally fails to identify solutions to the problem he is writing about. But Gordon's conclusion offers some admirably definitive policy advice."<strong>--Matthew Yglesias, *Vox</strong>* </p>
    <p>"Magnificent. . . . Even if history changes direction, and Mr. Gordon's rise-and-fall thesis proves to be wrong, this book will survive as a superb reconstruction of material life in America in the heyday of industrial capitalism."<strong>--*The Economist</strong>* </p>
    <p>"Every presidential candidate should be asked what policies he or she would offer to increase the pace of U.S. productivity growth and to narrow the widening gap between winners and losers in the economy. Bob Gordon's list is a good place to start."<strong>--David Wessel, WSJ.com's <em>Think Tank</em> blog</strong></p>
    <h3>From the Back Cover</h3>
    <p>"The story of our standard of living is a vital part of American history and is well told in this fascinating book. Gordon provides colorful details and striking statistics about how the way we live has changed, and he asks whether we will live happily ever after. His answer will surprise you and challenge conventional assumptions about the future of economic growth. This book is a landmark--there is nothing else like it." <strong>--Robert Solow, Nobel Laureate in Economics</strong></p>
    <p>"A towering achievement that will utterly transform the debate on U.S. productivity and growth. Robert Gordon chronicles the stunning swiftness with which American lives have advanced since 1870, and raises profound questions about whether we have benefitted from one-offs that cannot be repeated. Combining eloquent description with forceful and clear economic analysis, Gordon's voice is gripping and compelling. This is economic history at its best."<strong>--Kenneth S. Rogoff, coauthor of *This Time Is Different</strong>*</p>
    <p>"<em>The Rise and Fall of American Growth</em> is a tour de force with an immensely important bottom line. It is packed, page after page, with insights and facts that every reader will find fascinating and new. A profound book that also happens to be a marvelous read."<strong>--George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate in Economics</strong></p>
    <p>"Keynes dismissed concerns about economic trends by remarking that in the long run, we are all dead. Gordon turns this upside down by reminding us that we inherited somebody else's long run. If you care about the legacy we will leave future generations, read this richly detailed account of America's amazing century of growth."<strong>--Paul Romer, New York University</strong></p>
    <p>"Robert Gordon has written the book on wealth--how Americans made it and enjoyed it in the past. If we're going to create more wealth in the future instead of arguing about dividing a shrinking pie, we have to read and understand this book."<strong>--Peter Thiel, entrepreneur, investor, and author of *Zero to One</strong>*</p>
    <p>"This book is as important as it is unsettling. Gordon makes a compelling case that the golden age of growth is over. Anyone concerned with our economic future needs to carefully consider his argument."<strong>--Lawrence Summers, Harvard University</strong></p>
    <p>"In <em>The Rise and Fall of American Growth</em>, Gordon looks at the evolution of consumption and the standard of living in the United States from the end of the Civil War to the present day. His work brims with the enthusiasm of discovery and is enriched by personal anecdotes and insights derived over a long and very productive career."<strong>--Alexander J. Field, Santa Clara University</strong></p>
    <p>"<em>The Rise and Fall of American Growth</em> makes use of economic history to argue that Americans should expect the rate of economic growth to be, on average, slower in the future than it has been in the recent past. Gordon is the most important exponent of the pessimistic view working today and this is an exceptional book."<strong>--Louis Cain, Loyola University Chicago</strong></p></html>

    作者:Rolf Dobelli
    出版日期:2017-11-07T00:00:00+00:00
    Since antiquity, people have been asking themselves what it means to live a <i>good life</i>. How should I live? What constitutes a <i>good life</i>? What's the role of fate? What's the role of money? Is leading a <i>good life </i>a question of mindset, or is it more about reaching your goals? Is it better to actively seek happiness or to avoid unhappiness? <br>Each generation poses these questions anew, and somehow the answers are always fundamentally disappointing. Why? Because we're constantly searching for a <i>single </i>principle, a <i>single </i>tenet, a <i>single </i>rule. Yet this holy grail — a single, simple path to happiness — doesn't exist. Rolf Dobelli — successful businessman, founder of the TED-style ideas conference Zurich Minds, bestselling author, and all-around seeker of big ideas — has made finding a shortcut to happiness his life's mission. He's synthesized the leading thinkers and the latest science in happiness to find the best...

  42. ❤书名:Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life
    作者:Steve Martin
    出版日期:2013-08-21
    <div><p>In the midseventies, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. This book is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away." <br></p><p>Emmy and Grammy Award winner, author of the acclaimed <em>New York Times</em> bestsellers <em>Shopgirl</em> and <em>The Pleasure of My Compan</em>y, and a regular contributor to <em>The New Yorker</em>, Martin has always been awriter. His memoir of his years in stand-up is candid, spectacularly amusing, and beautifully written. <br></p><p>At age ten Martin started his career at Disneyland, selling guidebooks in the newly opened theme park. In the decade that followed, he worked in the Disney magic shop and the Bird Cage Theatre at Knott's Berry Farm, performing his first magic/comedy act a dozen times a week. The story of these years, during which he practiced and honed his craft, is moving and revelatory. The dedication to excellence and innovation is formed at an astonishingly early age and never wavers or wanes. <br></p><p>Martin illuminates the sacrifice, discipline, and originality that made him an icon and informs his work to this day. To be this good, to perform so frequently, was isolating and lonely. It took Martin decades to reconnect with his parents and sister, and he tells that story with great tenderness. Martin also paints a portrait of his times -- the era of free love and protests against the war in Vietnam, the heady irreverence of <em>The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour</em> in the late sixties, and the transformative new voice of <em>Saturday Night Live</em> in the seventies. <br></p><p>Throughout the text, Martin has placed photographs, many never seen before. <em>Born Standing Up</em> is a superb testament to the sheer tenacity, focus, and daring of one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time.</p><h3>Amazon.com Review</h3><p>At age 10, Steve Martin got a job selling guidebooks at the newly opened Disneyland. In the decade that followed, he worked in Disney's magic shop, print shop, and theater, and developed his own magic/comedy act. By age 20, studying poetry and philosophy on the side, he was performing a dozen times a week, most often at the Disney rival, Knott's Berry Farm. Obsession is a substitute for talent, he has said, and Steve Martin's focus and daring--his sheer tenacity--are truly stunning. He writes about making the very tough decision to sacrifice everything not original in his act, and about lucking into a job writing for <em>The Smothers Brothers Show</em>. He writes about mentors, girlfriends, his complex relationship with his parents and sister, and about some of his great peers in comedy--Dan Ackroyd, Lorne Michaels, Carl Reiner, Johnny Carson. He writes about fear, anxiety and loneliness. And he writes about how he figured out what worked on stage. </p><p>This book is a memoir, but it is also an illuminating guidebook to stand-up from one of our two or three greatest comedians. Though Martin is reticent about his personal life, he is also stunningly deft, and manages to give readers a feeling of intimacy and candor. Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs collected by Martin, this book is instantly compelling visually and a spectacularly good read. <br></p><p><strong>Amazon.com Exclusive</strong><br><strong>Three Bonus Deleted Passages from Steve Martin's *Born Standing Up</strong>*<br></p><p><strong>On Returning to Disneyland</strong><br>Ten years later, after the Beatles, drugs, and Vietnam had changed the entire tenor of American life, I returned to the magic shop at Disneyland and stood as a stranger. As I looked around the eerily familiar room another first came over me, a previously unknown emotion, one that was to have a curious force over me for the rest my life: the longing tug of nostalgia. Looking at the counter where I pitched Svengali Decks and the Incredible Shrinking Die, I was awash with the recollection of indelible nights where the sky was blown open by fireworks and big band sounds drifted through trees strung with fairy lights. I remembered my youth, when every moment was crisply present, when heartbreak and joy replaced each other quickly, fully and without trauma. Even now when I visit Disneyland, I am steeped in melancholy, because a corporation has preserved my nostalgia impeccably. Every nail and screw is the same, and Disneyland looks as new now as it did then. The paint is fresh, and the only wear allowed is faux. In fact, only I have changed. In the dream-like world of childhood memories, so often vague and imprecise, Disneyland remains for me not only vivid in memory, but vivid in fact.</p><p><strong>On Meeting Diane Hall</strong><br>During the day, I attended Santa Ana Junior College, taking drama classes and pursuing an unexpected interest in English poetry from Donne to Eliot. I would occasionally assist on a college stage production--never appearing in one--as a member of the crew. Years later I was looking through a box of memorabilia and noticed a silk-screened playbill of the musical <em>Carousel</em>, May, 1964, which listed me as a stagehand. The lead actress was Diane Hall. Something connected and I remembered that Diane Keaton's name was once Hall, (hence, Annie Hall). I confirmed with her that she was in that production. Neither of us remembers meeting the other, yet we must have worked in proximity. More evidence that I was a wallflower. Decades later, we ended up "making love" on the floor of a movie set on <em>Father of the Bride.</em></p><p><strong>On the Kennedy Assassination</strong><br>One Friday in 1963, I had finished a class and was about to drive to Knott's Berry Farm for the afternoon shows when I saw a clump of agitated students across the campus. I asked someone what was going on. "They're saying that the president's been shot." </p><p>I drove across town to Knott's and punched radio buttons. I could hear the scheduled programs clicking off and being replaced by live broadcasts. Assassination seemed so ancient and inconceivable, I was sure that someone would soon correct the erroneous report. President Kennedy died that day and I didn't know that news could be taken so personally by a nation. Sitting backstage, watching the Birdcage's black-and-white TV drone out the increasingly grave report, we were all mute. We assumed the performance that night would be canceled, but as show time neared, word came down that we were going on. We couldn't fathom why; we believed no one would show up, much less enjoy us. I still can't explain the psychology, why the very full house that night was able to roar with laughter. The obvious must be correct: our silly show was providing some kind of balm that soothed the ache. </p><p>In 2003 I hosted the Oscars on the particular weekend that the United States invaded Iraq. The news was grim and just hours before the show I flipped on the TV and saw a report, subsequently proven false, that our captive soldiers were being beheaded. I quickly turned the TV off, sick. I knew, from my experience forty years earlier with the Kennedy assassination, what my job was, and I harbored a secret knowledge that the audience would laugh. I also felt that soldiers who might be watching would be tuning in to see the Oscars and all its hoopla, not a cheerless comedian doing what he doesn’t do best. I decided to acknowledge the circumstances early in the show and then get on with the jokes. The academy had announced that the show would "cut back on the glitz." I walked out for the opening monologue, took a look around the stage at the dazzling, swirling staircases, mirrored curtains and polished floor, and simply said, "I'm glad they cut back on the glitz." It got a laugh of relief and the show could go on. <br></p><p><strong>More from Steve Martin</strong></p><p><em>The Alphabet from A to Y with Bonus Letter Z!</em></p><p><em>Shopgirl</em></p><p><em>The Pleasure of My Company</em></p><p><em>Picasso at the Lapin Agile and Other Plays</em></p><p><em>Pure Drivel</em></p><hr><p><em>Praise for *Born Standing Up<strong><em><br>"[A] lean, incisive new book about the trajectory of [Martin's] life in comedy...<em>Born Standing Up</em> does a sharp-witted job of breaking down the step-by-step process that brought Steve Martin from Disneyland, where he spent his version of a Dickensian childhood as a schoolboy employee, to both the pinnacle of stardom and the brink of disaster...tightly focused...<em>Born Standing Up</em> is a surprising book: smart, serious, heartfelt and confessional without being maudlin." <em>--Janet Maslin, *The New York Times</em></em></strong></em></p><p><em><em>"Absolutely magnificent.

Neatly combining his personal and professional worlds, beloved comedian, filmmaker, author, magician and banjoist Martin (Pure Drivel) chronicles his life as a gifted young comedian in this evocative, heartfelt memoir, which proves less wild and crazy than wise and considerate-though no less funny for it. The typically reticent performer shares rarely disclosed memories of childhood-his father, a failed actor, harbored increasing anger toward his son through the years-and the anxiety attacks that plagued him for some two decades, along with his early success as a television comedy writer, first for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, and the evolution of his stand-up routine. Sharp insight accompanies stories of his first adult gig (at an empty San Francisco coffee house), his pioneering "no punch lines" style ("My goal was to make the audience laugh but leave them unable to describe what it was that had made them laugh"), appearances on programs like The Steve Allen Show and breakthrough moments with small, confused audiences. Though vivid and entertaining throughout, Martin doesn't dish any behind-the-scenes dirt from Saturday Night Live or The Tonight Show; rather, he's warm and generous toward everyone in his life, including girlfriends and colleagues. Tellingly, this intimate early career recap ends not with Martin's decision to give up live performance or his film debut The Jerk, but with a visit to his parents and Knott's Berry Bird Cage Farm, where he first performed as a teenager. <br>Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

  43. ❤书名:The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care
    作者:T. R. Reid
    出版日期:2009-08-15T11:30:03+00:00
    <div><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p><em>Washington Post</em> correspondent Reid (_The United States of Europe_) explores health-care systems around the world in an effort to understand why the U.S. remains the only first world nation to refuse its citizens universal health care. Neither financial prudence nor concern for the commonweal explains the American position, according to Reid, whose findings divulge that the U.S. not only spends more money on health care than any other nation but also leaves 45 million residents uninsured, allowing about 22,000 to die from easily treatable diseases. Seeking treatment for the flareup of an old shoulder injury, he visits doctors in the U.S., France, Germany, Japan and England—with a stint in an Ayurvedic clinic in India—in a quest for treatment that dovetails with his search for a cure for America's health-care crisis, a narrative device that sometimes feels contrived, but allows him valuable firsthand experience. For all the scope of his research and his ability to mint neat rebuttals to the common American misconception that universal health care is socialized medicine, Reid neglects to address the elephant in the room: just how are we to sell these changes to the mighty providers and insurers? <em>(Sept.)</em> <br>Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. </p><h3>Product Description</h3><p><strong>Bestselling author T. R. Reid guides a whirlwind tour of successful health care systems worldwide, revealing possible paths toward U.S. reform.</strong> </p><p>In <em>The Healing of America, New York Times</em> bestselling author T. R. Reid shows how all the other industrialized democracies have achieved something the United States can't seem to do: provide health care for everybody at a reasonable cost. </p><p>In his global quest to find a possible prescription, Reid visits wealthy, free market, industrialized democracies like our own-including France, Germany, Japan, the U.K., and Canada-where he finds inspiration in example. Reid shares evidence from doctors, government officials, health care experts, and patients the world over, finding that foreign health care systems give everybody quality care at an affordable cost. And that dreaded monster "socialized medicine" turns out to be a myth. Many developed countries provide universal coverage with private doctors, private hospitals, and private insurance. </p><p>In addition to long-established systems, Reid also studies countries that have carried out major health care reform. The first question facing these countries-and the United States, for that matter-is an ethical issue: Is health care a human right? Most countries have already answered with a resolute yes, leaving the United States in the murky moral backwater with nations we typically think of as far less just than our own. </p><p><em>The Healing of America</em> lays bare the moral question at the heart of our troubled system, dissecting the misleading rhetoric surrounding the health care debate. Reid sees problems elsewhere, too: He finds poorly paid doctors in Japan, endless lines in Canada, mistreated patients in Britain, spartan facilities in France. Still, all the other rich countries operate at a lower cost, produce better health statistics, and cover everybody. In the end, <em>The Healing of America</em> is a good news book: It finds models around the world that Americans can borrow to guarantee health care for everybody who needs it. </p></div>

    作者:Carmine Gallo
    出版日期:2018-06-26T04:00:00+00:00
    <div><p><strong>How to get to master the art of persuasion—from the bestselling author of<em> Talk Like Ted</em>.</strong><br>
    Ideas don’t sell themselves. As the forces of globalization, automation, and artificial intelligence combine to disrupt every field, having a good idea isn’t good enough. Mastering the ancient art of persuasion is the key to standing out, getting ahead, and achieving greatness in the modern world. Communication is no longer a “soft” skill—it is the human edge that will make you unstoppable, irresistible, and irreplaceable—earning you that perfect rating, that fifth star.</p><p>In <em>Five Stars</em>, Carmine Gallo, bestselling author of <em>Talk Like TED</em>, breaks down how to apply Aristotle’s formula of persuasion to inspire contemporary audiences. As the nature of work changes, and technology carries things across the globe in a moment, communication skills become more valuable—not less. Gallo interviews neuroscientists, economists, historians, billionaires, and business leaders of companies like Google, Nike, and Airbnb to show first-hand how they use their words to captivate your imagination and ignite your dreams.<br>
    In the knowledge age—the information economy—you are only as valuable as your ideas. <em>Five Stars </em>is a book to help you bridge the gap between mediocrity and exceptionality, and gain your competitive edge in the age of automation.</p><p>In <em>Five Stars</em>, you will also learn:<br>
    -The one skill billionaire Warren Buffett says will raise your value by 50 percent.<br>
    -Why your job might fall into a category where 75 percent or more of your income relies on your ability to sell your idea. <br>
    -How Airbnb’s founders follow a classic 3-part formula shared by successful Hollywood movies.<br>
    -Why you should speak in third-grade language to persuade adult listeners. <br>
    -The one brain hack Steve Jobs, Leonardo da Vinci, and Picasso used to unlock their best ideas.</p><p>**</p><h3>Review</h3><p>As an entrepreneur, I know that my ability to effectively communicate and tell stories to our stakeholders is at the cornerstone of any success our business has ever enjoyed.

  45. ❤书名:Stumbling on Happiness
    作者:Daniel Gilbert
    出版日期:2006-05-01T00:00:00+00:00
    <h3>Amazon.com Review</h3><p>Do you know what makes you happy? Daniel Gilbert would bet that you <em>think</em> you do, but you are most likely wrong. In his witty and engaging new book, Harvard professor Gilbert reveals his take on how our minds work, and how the limitations of our imaginations may be getting in the way of our ability to know what happiness is. Sound quirky and interesting? It is! But just to be sure, we asked bestselling author (and master of the quirky and interesting) Malcolm Gladwell to read <em>Stumbling on Happiness</em>, and give us his take. Check out his review below. <em>--Daphne Durham</em> </p><hr /><p><strong>Guest Reviewer: Malcolm Gladwell</strong> </p><p><strong>Malcolm Gladwell is the author of bestselling books <em>Blink</em> and <em>The Tipping Point</em>, and is a staff writer for <em>The New Yorker</em>.</strong> </p><p>Several years ago, on a flight from New York to California, I had the good fortune to sit next to a psychologist named Dan Gilbert. He had a shiny bald head, an irrepressible good humor, and we talked (or, more accurately, he talked) from at least the Hudson to the Rockies--and I was completely charmed. He had the wonderful quality many academics have--which is that he was interested in the kinds of questions that all of us care about but never have the time or opportunity to explore. He had also had a quality that is rare among academics. He had the ability to translate his work for people who were outside his world.</p><p>Now Gilbert has written a book about his psychological research. It is called <em>Stumbling on Happiness</em>, and reading it reminded me of that plane ride long ago. It is a delight to read. Gilbert is charming and <em>funny</em> and has a rare gift for making very complicated ideas come alive.</p><p><em>Stumbling on Happiness</em> is a book about a very simple but powerful idea. What distinguishes us as human beings from other animals is our ability to predict the future--or rather, our interest in predicting the future. We spend a great deal of our waking life imagining what it would be like to be this way or that way, or to do this or that, or taste or buy or experience some state or feeling or thing. We do that for good reasons: it is what allows us to shape our life. And it is by trying to exert some control over our futures that we attempt to be happy. But by any objective measure, we are really bad at that predictive function. We're terrible at knowing how we will feel a day or a month or year from now, and even worse at knowing what will and will not bring us that cherished happiness. Gilbert sets out to figure what that's so: why we are so terrible at something that would seem to be so extraordinarily important?</p><p>In making his case, Gilbert walks us through a series of fascinating--and in some ways troubling--facts about the way our minds work. In particular, Gilbert is interested in delineating the shortcomings of imagination. We're far too accepting of the conclusions of our imaginations. Our imaginations aren't particularly imaginative. Our imaginations are really bad at telling us how we will think when the future finally comes. And our personal experiences aren't nearly as good at correcting these errors as we might think.</p><p>I suppose that I really should go on at this point, and talk in more detail about what Gilbert means by that--and how his argument unfolds. But I feel like that might ruin the experience of reading <em>Stumbling on Happiness</em>. This is a psychological detective story about one of the great mysteries of our lives. If you have even the slightest curiosity about the human condition, you ought to read it. Trust me. <em>--Malcolm Gladwell</em></p><hr /><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>Not offering a self-help book, but instead mounting a scientific explanation of the limitations of the human imagination and how it steers us wrong in our search for happiness, Gilbert, a professor of psychology at Harvard, draws on psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy and behavioral economics to argue that, just as we err in remembering the past, so we err in imagining the future. "Our desire to control is so powerful, and the feeling of being in control so rewarding, that people often act as though they can control the uncontrollable," Gilbert writes, as he reveals how ill-equipped we are to properly preview the future, let alone control it. Unfortunately, he claims, neither personal experience nor cultural wisdom compensates for imagination's shortcomings. In concluding chapters, he discusses the transmission of inaccurate beliefs from one person's mind to another, providing salient examples of universal assumptions about human happiness such as the joys of money and of having children. He concludes with the provocative recommendation that, rather than imagination, we should rely on others as surrogates for our future experience. Gilbert's playful tone and use of commonplace examples render a potentially academic topic accessible and educational, even if his approach is at times overly prescriptive. <em>150,000 announced first printing.</em><em>(May)</em> <br />Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

    <p><b>Real-time conversations turn leads into customers</b></p><p><i>Conversational Marketing </i>is the definitive guide to generating better leads and closing more sales. Traditional sales and marketing methods have failed to keep pace with the way modern, internet-savvy consumers purchase goods and services. Modern messaging apps, which allow for real-time conversations and instant feedback, have transformed the way we interact in our personal and professional lives, yet most businesses still rely on 20th century technology to communicate with 21st century customers. Online forms, email inquiries, and follow-up sales calls don’t provide the immediacy that modern consumers expect. Conversational marketing and sales are part of a new methodology centered around real-time, one-on-one conversations with customers via chatbots and messaging.  By allowing your business to communicate with customers in real time—when it’s most convenient <i>for...

  47. ❤书名:Wait: The Art and Science of Delay
    作者:Frank Partnoy
    出版日期:2012-06-26T00:00:00+00:00
    <p>What do these scenarios have in common: a professional tennis player returning a serve, a woman evaluating a first date across the table, a naval officer assessing a threat to his ship, and a comedian about to reveal a punch line?</p><p>In this counterintuitive and insightful work, author Frank Partnoy weaves together findings from hundreds of scientific studies and interviews with wide-ranging experts to craft a picture of effective decision-making that runs counter to our brutally fast-paced world. Even as technology exerts new pressures to speed up our lives, it turns out that the choices we make––unconsciously and consciously, in time frames varying from milliseconds to years––benefit profoundly from delay. As this winning and provocative book reveals, taking control of time and slowing down our responses yields better results in almost every arena of life … even when time seems to be of the essence.</p><p>The procrastinator in all of us will delight in Partnoy’s accounts of celebrity “delay specialists,” from Warren Buffett to Chris Evert to Steve Kroft, underscoring the myriad ways in which delaying our reactions to everyday choices––large and small––can improve the quality of our lives.</p><h3>Review</h3><p><strong>A <em>Fast Company</em> Best Business Book of 2012</strong></p><p><strong>Roger Lowenstein, author of <em>The End of Wall Street</em> and *When Genius Failed<br /></strong><em>“Having mined the best of American research in fields as wide-ranging as finance, behavioral economics, and law, Frank Partnoy has written a beguilingly readable treatise that boils down to a single, easily digestible conclusion: in our busy modern lives, most of us react too quickly. </em>Wait<em> will naturally and rightly be compared to Daniel Kahneman’s </em>Thinking, Fast and Slow* as a trail-blazing book exploring the hidden crannies and the treacherous pitfalls of human decision-making. I whole-heartedly recommend it."</p><p><strong>Bethany McLean, co-author of *The</strong> Smartest Guys in the Room<em> and </em>All the Devils Are Here<br /><em /><em>“</em>Wait* is one of those rare books that will change not just the way you think, but the way you act. The book is full of ideas that are fascinating, useful—and at times mind-blowing. I was captivated.”</p><p><strong>Daniel H. Pink, author of <em>Drive</em> and *A Whole New Mind</strong><em>“Frank Partnoy turns conventional wisdom on its head with this counterintuitive approach to decision-making. Rather than telling us how to make decisions faster and faster, he mines and refines a rich lode of information from experts in a surprising variety of fields to demonstrate the power of delay, whether measured in milliseconds, days, or decades. </em>Wait* is a great read, chock full of fascinating insights.”</p><p><strong><em>Kirkus Reviews,</em> starred review</strong><br />“A fascinating addition to the study of decision-making…. While there is a high premium today for speed, the author suggests that there are serious downsides to rapid decision-making.… Partnoy’s results are groundbreaking and a potential corrective to modern pressures for rapid response, whether on the playing field, in high-speed computer trading and corporate boardrooms, or on the battlefield…. File alongside Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Ariely, [and] Jonah Lehrer.”</p><p><strong><em>Strategy + Business</em></strong>“Gladwell-esque … the book uses case studies of ‘delay specialists’ in realms as varied as stand-up comedy and warfare, extending the implications of postponing responses in order to improve outcomes in every part of our business and personal lives. Procrastinators everywhere will rejoice.” <strong><em>Washington Post Express</em></strong><em>"</em>Citing fascinating studies in tennis serves and first dates, [Partnoy] deftly makes a case for exercising something we could all use more of: patience. Plus, you gotta love a guy who dedicates his book to his golden retriever.”</p><p><strong>Jack Covert,</strong> <strong><em>800-CEO-READS<br /></em></strong>“Well-written…. Chapter Three is particularly fascinating in its implications for how we make decisions and manage the world.”<br /></p><p><strong>Margaret Heffernan, *CBS Money Watch</strong><br /><em /><em>“Marvelous … </em>Wait *is an impassioned and thought-provoking book."</p><p><strong>Christopher Chabris*, <strong><em /></strong>Wall Street Journal</strong><em><br />“Mr. Partnoy's intention in </em>Wait* is to take on those who evangelize the power of thinking quickly, ‘getting things done’ and leading an organized life. We can praise efficiency but fail to take note of what is sacrificed in its name. Wait offers a valuable counterweight to this attitude, reminding us that quality should matter as much as speed."</p><p><strong><em>Economist</em></strong><br />“A popular new book…. Mr Partnoy argues that too many people fail to recognize what good public speakers and comedians all understand: that success depends on knowing when to delay, and for how long.”</p><p><strong><em>Financial Times</em></strong>“A superior example of the genre. It is a departure from his earlier books about financial crises, but written with the same easy elegance. ... Partnoy makes mincemeat of the idea of ‘thin slicing’ – the art of making snap decisions based on very little information – that was made so popular by Malcolm Gladwell in <em>Blink</em>. ... As a collection of fascinating case studies, <em>Wait</em> is a gem." <strong><em>Winnipeg Free Press</em></strong>“[Partnoy’s] latest offering is a skeptical response to Malcolm Gladwell's 2005 bestseller, <em>Blink</em>... Partnoy spends a lot of time synthesizing recent scholarship, providing clear and accessible accounts of work in an impressive range of academic fields. While the breadth and the depth of his research gives the book's rather straightforward message its complexity and rhetorical power, the book's charm comes from Partnoy's ability to juggle such seemingly disparate topics as, on the one hand, an engaging discussion of recent science on animals and their conceptualization of future time and, on the other hand, an unabashedly doting analysis of the comic timing of Jon Stewart.”<br /></p><p><strong><em>Minneapolis Star-Tribune<br /></em></strong>“Partnoy draws on the latest research in neuroscience and behavioral economics to provide a delightful, insightful and often surprising ‘Wait, wait, do tell me’ account of decision-making in many areas of everyday life, ranging from sports to surgery to speed-dating and stock-picking…. <em>Wait</em> is chock-full of arresting insights about the complexities of decision-making"<br /></p><p><strong><em>Creditcards.com<br /></em></strong>"A lively, reader-friendly survey of scientific research into the pros and cons of rapid decision-making."<br /></p><p><strong><em>Bloomberg<br /></em></strong>“An intellectual romp through the science of how timing influences human decision-making.”<br /></p><p><strong><em>Washington Post<br /></em></strong>“Fascinating, engaging…. This isn’t a book of platitudes, but one built on one simple imperative. Partnoy just wants us to think before we act or speak. <em>Wait</em> serves as excellent reminder that, when humanly possible, it’s best not to hurry.”<br /></p><h3>About the Author</h3><p>FRANK PARTNOY is the George E. Barrett Professor of Law and Finance and is the director of the Center on Corporate and Securities Law at the University of San Diego.

  50. ❤书名:Envy: The Seven Deadly Sins
    作者:Joseph Epstein
    出版日期:2003-08-27
    <div><p>Malice that cannot speak its name, cold-blooded but secret hostility, impotent desire, hidden rancor and spite--all cluster at the center of envy. Envy clouds thought, writes Joseph Epstein, clobbers generosity, precludes any hope of serenity, and ends in shriveling the heart. Of the seven deadly sins, he concludes, only envy is no fun at all. <br>Writing in a conversational, erudite, self-deprecating style that wears its learning lightly, Epstein takes us on a stimulating tour of the many faces of envy. He considers what great thinkers--such as John Rawls, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche--have written about envy; distinguishes between envy, yearning, jealousy, resentment, and schadenfreude ("a hardy perennial in the weedy garden of sour emotions"); and catalogs the many things that are enviable, including wealth, beauty, power, talent, knowledge and wisdom, extraordinary good luck, and youth (or as the title of Epstein's chapter on youth has it, "The Young, God Damn Them"). He looks at resentment in academia, where envy is mixed with snobbery, stirred by impotence, and played out against a background of cosmic injustice; and he offers a brilliant reading of <em>Othello</em> as a play more driven by Iago's envy than Othello's jealousy. He reveals that envy has a strong touch of malice behind it--the envious want to destroy the happiness of others. He suggests that envy of the astonishing success of Jews in Germany and Austria may have lurked behind the virulent anti-Semitism of the Nazis. <br>As he proved in his best-selling <em>Snobbery</em>, Joseph Epstein has an unmatched ability to highlight our failings in a way that is thoughtful, provocative, and entertaining. If envy is no fun, Epstein's <em>Envy</em> is truly a joy to read.</p><p>**</p><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>The Oxford University Press/New York Public Library Seven Deadly Sins series, of which Envy is the first volume, comes hot on the heels of Penguin's successful Lives, which provocatively pairs celebrated subjects with well-known writers in compact and accessible biographies. Unfortunately, Envy is insubstantial and unambitious even for its modest size. While it might have a seemed a good idea to get Epstein, author of the uneven but amusing Snobbery: The American Version, to address the related sin of envy, he does not seem to have anything very provocative to say about it. Derived from a public lecture, Epstein's opening chapters give a decent if unenlightening overview, larded with enough quotations from such greats as Schopenhauer and Lord Chesterfield to maintain interest. Over the course of 14 chapters, some of a few hundred words each, cliche turns up often (Shakespeare is "that most universal of writers," and Othello is about Iago, it turns out), yet the book's airy charm and lightly worn learning might work as diverting, high-toned amusement if not for the one-dimensionality of some of the ideas that emerge. For Epstein's notion of envy is ultimately that of the moneyed and powerful, who characterize any challenge to their power as being based on envy. Marxism? Envy. Feminism? Envy. The academy? Envy and "hopelessly radical political views." This kind of rhetoric might go over in a country club or cigar lounge, but in the world of ideas to which it is presumably addressed, it reads more like an example of the eighth deadly sin: smugness. <br>Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc. </p><h3>From Booklist</h3><p>Seven writers have been invited to consider the seven deadly sins, and the results are being published in a promising series of small, cleverly illustrated, and, so far, scintillating volumes.</p><p>Epstein's recent book on snobbery has met with great acclaim, making him uniquely suited to the task of analyzing envy, since snobbery is based on its cultivation, and, indeed, Epstein is a witty and thoughtful elucidator of this covert and poisonous state of mind. Of the seven sins, Epstein observes, envy is the most common and insidious and the least enjoyable. He discusses various types of envy, the differences between women's and men's envy, Freud's preoccupation with it, and worlds in which envy rages (the arts and academia may be the worst). Epstein confesses to his own struggles with envy over the course of his musings, which grow in gravitas as he moves beyond individuals to consider how envy between nations leads to war and how anti-Semitism can be interpreted as a particularly malignant manifestation of this deadly sin. </p><p>Novelist and critic Prose brings her keen interest in our conflicted relationship with our bodies to her creatively, even voraciously researched and elegantly argued inquiry into the paradoxes of gluttony, a sin writ large on the body and, therefore, impossible to conceal. Prose notes that the term is rarely used now that overeating is viewed as a psychological and health problem rather than a "crime against God." Equally conversant in religious and secular perspectives, Prose turns to theology and art to illuminate the curious history of a sin rooted in a behavior essential to survival. She traces the line between gourmandism and binging and ponders the increase in obesity in our consumer culture and the stigma of being overweight in a society that loves excess in everything but body size. Gluttons now sin against "prevailing standards of beauty and health," and the punishment is living hell. <em>Donna Seaman</em><br><em>Copyright © American Library Association.

Levine created a computerized trading hub named Island where small traders swapped stocks, and over time his invention morphed into a global electronic stock market that sent trillions in capital through a vast jungle of fiber-optic cables.  <br /></p><p>By then, the market that Levine had sought to fix had turned upside down, birthing secretive exchanges called dark pools and a new species of trading machines that could think, and that seemed, ominously, to be slipping the control of their human masters. <br /></p><p>Dark Pools is the fascinating story of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots--many so self-directed that humans can't predict what they'll do next.</p><h3>Review</h3><p><strong>“Scott Patterson’s <em>Dark Pools </em>is about the most important financial issue no one talks about—how high-frequency traders have rigged the market.” <br /></strong>--Mark Cuban <br /></p><p><strong>“Remarkable…even long-time participants in electronic markets will learn a lot from this book.”</strong><br />--Forbes<br /><br /><strong>“Richly reported…an invaluable piece of timely journalism that should be read by regulators and anyone with a cent in the stock market...You will never look at the opening bell in the same way.”</strong><br />--Financial Times<br /></p><p>“An engaging narrative…<strong>DARK POOLS is easily the most entertaining and accessible book to cover the new world of stock trading</strong>.”<br />--Fortune<br /><br /><strong>“An education in how markets work, packaged in a thriller worthy of Michael Crichton….</strong><em> Dark Pools </em>is one of those rare books that is a great summer beach read and a useful trading manual.”<br />--Minyanville.com<br /><br /><strong>“Very enjoyable….a good story of how innovators destroy the old guard.”<br /></strong>--BusinessInsider.com<br /><br /><strong>“<em>Dark Pools </em>relays an epic tangle of hacktivists, old-school floor exchanges and traders – all wrestling to game the machines…</strong>The stories engage from chapter to chapter, bringing the reader from the outside in.”<br /><strong>--Seeking Alpha</strong><br /></p><p>“<strong>An entertaining account of the key battles in the “algo wars” and the colorful math geeks who fight them</strong>—some of whom are now fighting to rein in the monsters they created. <em>Dark Pools</em> is an alarming account.”<br />--Canadian Business<br /></p><p><strong>“<em>Dark Pools </em>is a must read for all serious investors.  </strong>Patterson’s methodically researched<strong> </strong>book exposes the core problems in today’s securities market…His findings should serve as a blueprint for the SEC.”<strong> </strong><br />--Blair Hull, founder of Hull Trading and Ketchum Trading </p><p><em>From the Hardcover edition.</em></p><h3>About the Author</h3><p>SCOTT PATTERSON is a staff reporter at the Wall Street Journal, covering government regulation from the nation's capital. </p>

  55. ❤书名:Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
    作者:Steven Johnson
    出版日期:2006-05-02T00:00:00+00:00
    <p>Forget everything you’ve ever read about the age of dumbed-down, instant-gratification culture. In this provocative, unfailingly intelligent, thoroughly researched, and surprisingly convincing big idea book, Steven Johnson draws from fields as diverse as neuroscience, economics, and media theory to argue that the pop culture we soak in every day—from <strong>Lord of the Rings</strong> to <strong>Grand Theft Auto</strong> to <strong>The Simpsons</strong>—has been growing more sophisticated with each passing year, and, far from rotting our brains, is actually posing new cognitive challenges that are actually making our minds measurably sharper. After reading <em>Everything Bad is Good for You</em>, you will never regard the glow of the video game or television screen the same way again.</p><p>With a new afterword by the author.<br /></p><p>Steven Johnson's newest book, <em>Future Perfect</em>, is now available from Riverhead Books.</p><h3>Amazon.com Review</h3><p>In his fourth book, <em>Everything Bad Is Good for You</em>, iconoclastic science writer Steven Johnson (who used himself as a test subject for the latest neurological technology in his last book, <em>Mind Wide Open</em>) takes on one of the most widely held preconceptions of the postmodern world--the belief that video games, television shows, and other forms of popular entertainment are detrimental to Americans' cognitive and moral development. <em>Everything Good</em> builds a case to the contrary that is engaging, thorough, and ultimately convincing. </p><p>The heart of Johnson's argument is something called the Sleeper Curve--a universe of popular entertainment that trends, intellectually speaking, ever upward, so that today's pop-culture consumer has to do more "cognitive work"--making snap decisions and coming up with long-term strategies in role-playing video games, for example, or mastering new virtual environments on the Internet-- than ever before. Johnson makes a compelling case that even today's least nutritional TV junk food–the <em>Joe Millionaire</em>s and <em>Survivor</em>s so commonly derided as evidence of America's cultural decline--is more complex and stimulating, in terms of plot complexity and the amount of external information viewers need to understand them, than the <em>Love Boat</em>s and <em>I Love Lucy</em>s that preceded it. When it comes to television, even (perhaps especially) crappy television, Johnson argues, "the content is less interesting than the cognitive work the show elicits from your mind." <br />Johnson's work has been controversial, as befits a writer willing to challenge wisdom so conventional it has ossified into accepted truth. But even the most skeptical readers should be captivated by the intriguing questions Johnson raises, whether or not they choose to accept his answers. <em>--Erica C. Barnett</em></p><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>Worried about how much time your children spend playing video games? Don't be, advises Johnson—not only are they learning valuable problem-solving skills, they'd probably do better on an IQ test than you or your parents could at their age. Go ahead and let them watch more television, too, since even reality shows can function as "elaborately staged group psychology experiments" to stimulate rather than pacify the brain. With the same winning combination of personal revelation and friendly scientific explanation he displayed in last year's <em>Mind Wide Open</em>, Johnson shatters the conventional wisdom about pop culture as pabulum, showing how video games, television shows and movies have become increasingly complex. Furthermore, he says, consumers are drawn specifically to those products that require the most mental engagement, from small children who can't get enough of their favorite Disney DVDs to adults who find new layers of meaning with each repeated viewing of <em>Seinfeld</em>. Johnson lays out a strong case that what we do for fun is just as educational in its way as what we study in the classroom (although it's still worthwhile to encourage good reading habits, too). There's an important message here for every parent—one they should hear from the source before savvy kids (especially teens) try to take advantage of it. <em>Agent, Lydia Wills at Paradigm.

  56. ❤书名:Natural Born Charmer
    作者:Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    出版日期:2006-01-01T13:00:00+00:00
    <div><p>Chicago Stars quarterback Dean Robillard is the luckiest man in the world: a bona-fide sports superstar and the pride of the NFL with a profitable side career as a buff billboard model for End Zone underwear. But life in the glory lane has started to pale, and Dean has set off on a cross-country trip to figure out what's gone wrong. When he hits a lonely stretch of Colorado highway, he spies something that will shake up his gilded life in ways he can't imagine. A young woman . . . dressed in a beaver suit. </p><p>Blue Bailey is on a mission to murder her ex. Or at least inflict serious damage. As for the beaver suit she's wearing . . . Is it her fault that life keeps throwing her curveballs? Witness the expensive black sports car pulling up next to her on the highway and the Greek god stepping out of it.</p><p>Blue's career as a portrait painter is the perfect job for someone who refuses to stay in one place for very long. She needs a ride, and America's most famous football player has an imposing set of wheels. Now, all she has to do is keep him entertained, off guard, and fully clothed before he figures out exactly how desperate she is. </p><p>But Dean isn't the brainless jock she imagines, and Blue—despite her petite stature—is just about the toughest woman Dean has ever met. They're soon heading for his summer home where their already complicated lives and inconvenient attraction to each other will become entangled with a charismatic but aging rock star; a beautiful fifty-two-year-old woman trying to make peace with her rock and roll past; an eleven-year-old who desperately needs a family; and a bitter old woman who hates them all.</p><p>As the summer progresses, the wandering portrait artist and the charming football star play a high-stakes game, fighting themselves and each other for a chance to have it all. </p><p><em>Natural Born Charmer</em> is for everyone who's ever thought about leaving their old life in the dust and never looking back. Susan Elizabeth Phillips takes us home again . . . and shows us where love truly lives.</p><h3>From Publishers Weekly</h3><p>In this latest installment in Phillips's romance series starring the Chicago Stars football players (<em>This Heart of Mine</em>; <em>Nobody's Baby but Mine</em>), the bestselling novelist delivers a love story wrought with delicious sexual tension and charged banter. When debonair starting quarterback Dean Robillard, on a soul-searching road trip after a serious shoulder injury, happens across Blue Bailey, walking alongside the road wearing a beaver costume, he stops to help her. Blue is far from a Barbie-esque football groupie, but broke and stranded, she needs both a ride and a job, and the football all-star (driving a sexy Aston Martin) poses an interesting opportunity. As the two travel from Colorado to Dean's new farmhouse in east Tennessee, Blue resists his advances, and both athlete and vagabond struggle with deeply rooted trust and familial issues that are soon exacerbated by the unexpected presence of Dean's mother at the farm. While the verbal sparring in this textbook case of opposites attracting feels stagy at first, the rough edges come together in an alluring way. <em>(Feb.)</em> <br>Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. </p><h3>From Booklist</h3><p>After her ex-boyfriend Monty insists that she is the only person he ever loved, Blue Bailey packs up everything she has (which isn't much) and moves from Seattle to Colorado to be with him. But once Blue arrives, she discovers Monty has found love again with a younger, blonder new girlfriend. With few job options and practically no money, Blue thought she might be stuck in Colorado for a long time, until Dean Robillard drives through on his way to Tennessee. The last person Blue wants to ask for a favor is a way-too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good stranger who annoys her to no end. And who turns out to be the quarterback for the Chicago Stars. But Dean is Blue's only ticket out, even if it means she is stuck with him all the way to Tennessee. RITA Award-winner Phillips creates yet another classic romance in her loosely connected Chicago Stars series with this splendidly satisfying tale of love, family, and redemption. Generously seasoned with plenty of tart humor and snappy dialogue, and graced with a delightfully amusing pair of protagonists trying desperately not to fall in love, <em>Natural</em> <em>Born</em> <em>Charmer</em> is simply irresistible. <em>John Charles</em><br><em>Copyright © American Library Association.
