  • "Brilliant. DK is a genuine mind re..."

    Overall

    Who am I to say this noble laureate is brilliant, but I'll chuck in my two pennyworth anyway. Kahneman shows you how you think and how easy it is to be deluded and misled by the way your brain just happens to work. Some of the book is quite hard work, and sometimes it is a bit slow reading (laboured points), but the content is fascinating and also important. It will probably change how you think, view and live your life, which is quite something for a mere book.

    Daniel Kahneman, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his seminal work in psychology challenging the rational model of judgment and decision making, is one of the world's most important thinkers. His ideas have had a profound impact on many fields - including business, medicine, and politics - but until now, he has never brought together his many years of research in one book.

    Overall

    Brilliant book - I can't remember what prompted me to choose this but I am so glad I did. It is really three books - a gripping novel, a scientific history, and an ethical work out. Would you have tortuously prolonged the lives of children you couldn't cure? No? Then you would not have discovered the cure to childhood leukemia! Ouch. All the amazing hopes and setbacks that have been cancer research in the past 30 years must have been reported in the news, yet remained peripheral to my consciousness. Wonderful author-doctor to have brought it all to centre stage.

    A comprehensive history of cancer - one of the greatest enemies of medical progress - and an insight into its effects and potential cures, by a leading expert on the illness. In The Emperor of All Maladies, Siddhartha Mukherjee, doctor, researcher and award-winning science writer, examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived with - and perished from - for more than five thousand years.

    I clicked this into my library without realising a) that it was abridged and b) that it is the 2000 edition not the 2005 revised edition. In other words, in my appreciation this purchase is a complete mistake. Why would the 2000 edition even still be in stock, once the post-2001 crash version is available? I'm going to try and send this book back.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    This audiobook could best be described as a lab manual with simple experiments that prove reality is malleable, consciousness trumps matter, and you shape your life with your mind. Yes, you read that right. It says prove. The nine experiments, each of which can be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time expenditure, demonstrate that spiritual principles are as dependable as gravity, as consistent as Newton's laws of motion.

    Wut, Angst, Scham - nur ein Teil der Gefühle, die gemeinhin als negativ bewertet werden. Dem gegenüber steht als höchstes Ziel das dauerhafte, allumfassende Glück, das keinen Platz lässt für emotionale Abgründe. Doch die Abgründe sind da - und werden umso größer, je mehr wir sie ignorieren. Emotionale Leere oder Schuldgefühle sind nicht selten Ausdruck der Unterdrückung unserer Gefühle zugunsten der Diktatur des Glücks.

    Sie leiden unter starken oder sogar chronischen Rückenschmerzen? Sie haben das Gefühl, Sie tragen ständig eine große Last mit sich herum? Besonders unter Stress macht sich Ihr Rücken bemerkbar? Neben Bewegungsmangel, Fehlhaltungen oder zu schwacher Muskulatur sind insbesondere Stress und psychische Probleme die Ursache für den quälenden Schmerz im Rücken. Und ist der Schmerz einmal da, beginnt schnell ein Teufelskreis aus Schonhaltungen und neuen, schmerzhaften Verspannungen.
