A psychologist and best-selling author gives us a myth-busting response to the self-help movement, with tips and tricks to improve your life that come straight from the scientific community. Richard Wiseman has been troubled by the realization that the self-help industry often promotes exercises that destroy motivation, damage relationships, and reduce creativity: the opposite of everything it promises. Now, in 59 Seconds, he fights back, bringing together the diverse scientific advice that can help you change your life in under a minute, and guides you toward becoming more decisive, more imaginative, more engaged, and altogether more happy. From mood to memory, persuasion to procrastination, resilience to relationships, Wiseman outlines the research supporting the new science of “rapid change” and, with clarity and infectious enthusiasm, describes how these quirky, sometimes counterintuitive techniques can be effortlessly incorporated into your everyday life. Or, as he likes to say: “Think a little, change a lot.” From the Hardcover edition.

Wissenschaftlich erwiesene Techniken, mit denen Sie Ihr Leben in weniger als einer Minute erfolgreich verändern Es ist viel einfacher, Ihr Leben zu verändern, als Sie dachten und als Ihnen viele Lebensberater weismachen wollen. Neueste Studien haben ergeben, dass es viele Techniken gibt, die hoch effektiv sind, weniger als 60 Sekunden Zeit brauchen und deren Erfolg vor allem wissenschaftlich erwiesen ist. In diesem Buch bringt der Psychologe und Bestsellerautor Richard Wiseman erstmals diese Techniken zusammen und zeigt, wie und warum sie funktionieren. So erklärt er unter anderem – wie man um 10 Prozent kreativer wird, nur indem man sich hinlegt; – wie ein Bleistift im Mund unmittelbar das Glückempfinden stimuliert; – wie alleine ans Fitness-Studio zu denken den Körper in Form bringt; – warum eine leichte Berührung am Arm einer fremden Person um 62 Prozent die Chancen erhöht, dass diese Person Sie mag; – wie nur das Verschränken der Arme Ihnen schon hilft, eine schwierige Aufgabe anzupacken. Richard Wiseman zeigt, welche wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse hinter all diesen Techniken und vielen anderen stehen, er entlarvt die Mythen der vielen Lebensberater und zeigt, das der persönliche und berufliche Erfolg weniger als eine Minute entfernt sein kann.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

In 1994, W. Richard Stevens and Addison-Wesley published a networking classic: TCP/IP Illustrated. The model for that book was a brilliant, unfettered approach to networking concepts that has proven itself over time to be popular with readers of beginning to intermediate networking knowledge. The Illustrated Network takes this time-honored approach and modernizes it by creating not only a much larger and more complicated network, but also by incorporating all the networking advancements that have taken place since the mid-1990s, which are many. This book takes the popular Stevens approach and modernizes it, employing 2008 equipment, operating systems, and router vendors. It presents an ?illustrated? explanation of how TCP/IP works with consistent examples from a real, working network configuration that includes servers, routers, and workstations. Diagnostic traces allow the reader to follow the discussion with unprecedented clarity and precision. True to the title of the book, there are 330+ diagrams and screen shots, as well as topology diagrams and a unique repeating chapter opening diagram. Illustrations are also used as end-of-chapter questions. A complete and modern network was assembled to write this book, with all the material coming from real objects connected and running on the network, not assumptions. Presents a real world networking scenario the way the reader sees them in a device-agnostic world. Doesn't preach one platform or the other. Here are ten key differences between the two: Stevens Goralski's Older operating systems (AIX,svr4,etc.) Newer OSs (XP, Linux, FreeBSD, etc.) Two routers (Cisco, Telebit (obsolete)) Two routers (M-series, J-series) Slow Ethernet and SLIP link Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and SONET/SDH links (modern) Tcpdump for traces Newer, better utility to capture traces (Ethereal, now has a new name!) No IPSec IPSec No multicast Multicast No router security discussed Firewall routers detailed No Web Full Web browser HTML consideration No IPv6 IPv6 overview Few configuration details More configuration details (ie, SSH, SSL, MPLS, ATM/FR consideration, wireless LANS, OSPF and BGP routing protocols New Modern Approach to Popular Topic Adopts the popular Stevens approach and modernizes it, giving the reader insights into the most up-to-date network equipment, operating systems, and router vendors. Shows and Tells Presents an illustrated explanation of how TCP/IP works with consistent examples from a real, working network configuration that includes servers, routers, and workstations, allowing the reader to follow the discussion with unprecedented clarity and precision. Over 330 Illustrations True to the title, there are 330 diagrams, screen shots, topology diagrams, and a unique repeating chapter opening diagram to reinforce concepts Based on Actual Networks A complete and modern network was assembled to write this book, with all the material coming from real objects connected and running on the network, bringing the real world, not theory, into sharp focus.

Scheidungen, kein Kontakt zu den Kindern, Gefängnis wegen Betrugs - all das hat Harvard-Professor Clayton M. Christensen bei ehemaligen Kommilitonen gesehen und es hat ihn zum Nachdenken angeregt: Wie konnte es so weit kommen? Und wie macht man es besser? Seine Überlegungen führten Christensen zu den drei grundlegenden Fragen: Wie führe ich ein glückliches und sinnerfülltes Privatleben? Wie werde ich beruflich erfolgreich und habe Freude an meiner Arbeit? Und wie vermeide ich es, im Gefängnis zu landen? Er findet die Antworten in Wirtschaftstheorien, die er auf persönliche Lebensentscheidungen überträgt - so zum Beispiel die Einführung einer Familienkultur, um den eigenen Kindern Leitlinien an die Hand zu geben. Dabei gibt er jedoch nicht rigide Verhaltensregeln vor, sondern liefert Denkanstöße, mit deren Hilfe der Leser zu seiner ganz persönlichen, maßgeschneiderten Strategie für ein erfülltes und erfolgreiches Leben gelangt.
