I am interested in marketing and I wanted to know a bit more about marketing the luxury items, so I bought this book. It's horrible. It's training programme of a sales ambasador of a premium brand, not proper marketing book. Totally useless.

It's behavioral psychology applied to marketing. Interesting, mostly based on case studies, clearly explaines what it teaches.

An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth is an inspirational memoir of space exploration and hard-won wisdom, from an astronaut who has spent a lifetime making the impossible a reality. Colonel Chris Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4,000 hours in space. During this time he has broken into a Space Station with a Swiss army knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft, and become a YouTube sensation with his performance of David Bowie's ‘Space Oddity' in space.

Chris is a very good autor and narrator. I enjoyed every minute of this book. There are lessons that I hope to incorporate in my life.
You can also find out more about what it takes to be an astronaut, how the training looks like, how life on ISS looks like or how to manage your family life (wie and kids) when you are chasing an impossible dream.
Thank you Sir Hadfield for sharing your story.

Why does the cinema have the power to move the heart, stimulate the mind, and dazzle the imagination? How did the art of film develop from its origins to the present day? This course covers the history and aesthetics of the movies. It traces the experiments and innovations that gave rise to the modern cinema, developing a vocabulary that helps explain the variety of choices filmmakers make when they construct shots and edit them together.

Tip: watch all the movies mentioned before starting this course.
I am a person who loves watching movies, but knows little about the history of film. I was greatly confused by this course and although I did learn new things, I felt that I don't have sufficient knowledge to get the most of it.

Ancient Egyptian civilization is so grand our minds sometimes have difficulty adjusting to it. It lasted 3,000 years, longer than any other on the planet. Its Great Pyramid of Cheops was the tallest building in the world until well into the 19th century and remains the only Ancient Wonder still standing. And it was the most technologically advanced of the ancient civilizations, with the medical knowledge that made Egyptian physicians the most famous in the world.
