A Little History of the World
Gombrich, E. H. Yale University Press 2008, počet strán 284

Obal: soft, Stav: 5 / 5, In 1935, with a doctorate in art history and no prospect of a job, the 26 - year - old Ernst Gombrich was invited by a publishing acquaintance to attempt a history of the world for younger readers. Amazingly, he completed the task in an intense six weeks, and Eine kurze Weltgeschichte für junge Leser was published in Vienna to immediate success, and is now available in seventeen languages across the world. Toward the end of his long life, Gombrich embarked upon a revision and, at last, an English translation. A Little History of the World presents his lively and involving history to English - language readers for the first time. Superbly designed and freshly illustrated, this is a book to be savored and collected. In forty concise chapters, Gombrich tells the story of man fr_om the stone age to the atomic bomb. In between emerges a colorful picture of wars and conquests, grand works of art, and the spread and limitations of science. This is a text dominated not by dates and facts, but by the sweep of mankind's experience across the centuries, a guide to humanity's achievements and an acute witness to its frailties. The product of a generous and humane sensibility, this timeless account makes intelligible the full span of human history.

An Indian History of the American West
Brown, Dee Vintage 1991, počet strán 487

Obal: soft, Stav: 4 / 5, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown's eloquent, fully documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century. A national bestseller in hardcover for more than a year after its initial publication, it has sold almost four million copies and has been translated into seventeen languages. For this elegant thirtieth - anniversary edition—published in both hardcover and paperback—Brown has contributed an incisive new preface. Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows the great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated. A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee changed forever our vision of how the West was really won.

A Short History of Nearly Everything
Bryson, Bill Black Swan 2004, počet strán 687

Obal: soft, Stav: 4 / 5, but even when he stays safely in his own study at home, he can't contain his curiosity about the world around him. A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to find out everything that has happened fr_om the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got fr_om there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. Bill Bryson's challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. It's not so much about what we know, as about how we know what we know. How do we know what is in the centre of the Earth, or what a black hole is, or whe_re the continents were 600 million years ago? How did anyone ever figure these things out? On his travels through time and space, he encounters a splendid collection of astonishingly eccentric, competitive, obsessive and foolish scientists, like the painfully shy Henry Cavendish who worked out many conundrums like how much the Earth weighed, but never bothered to tell anybody about many of his findings. In the company of such extraordinary people, Bill Bryson takes us with him on the ultimate eye - opening journey, and reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

A History of Man's Changing Vision of the Universe
Koestler, Arthur Arkana 1989, počet strán 623

Obal: soft, Stav: 4 / 5, An extraordinary history of humanity's changing vision of the universe. In this masterly synthesis, Arthur Koestler cuts through the sterile distinction between 'sciences' and 'humanities' to bring to life the whole history of cosmology fr_om the Babylonians to Newton. He shows how the tragic split between science and religion arose and how, in particular, the modern world - view replaced the medieval world - view in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. He also provides vivid and judicious pen - portraits of a string of great scientists and makes clear the role that political bias and unconscious prejudice played in their creativity.

Stumbling on Happiness
Gilbert, Daniel Harper Perennial 2007, počet strán 277

Obal: soft, Stav: 5 / 5, In this fascinating and often hilarious work - winner of the Royal Society of Science Prize 2007 - pre - eminent psychologist Daniel Gilbert shows how - and why - the majority of us have no idea how to make ourselves happy. We all want to be happy, but do we know how? When it comes to improving tomorrow at the expense of today, we're terrible at predicting how to please our future selves. In `Stumbling on Happiness' Professor Daniel Gilbert combines psychology, neuroscience, economics and philosophy with irrepressible wit to describe how the human brain imagines its future - and how well (or badly) it predicts what it will enjoy. Revealing some of the amazing secrets of human motivation, he also answers thought - provoking questions - why do dining companions order different meals instead of getting what they want? Why are shoppers happier when they can't get refunds? And why are couples less satisfied after having children while insisting that their kids are a source of joy?

Mastering the Lost Arts of Leisure and Pleasure
Flocker, Michael Da Capo Press, 2004, počet strán 205

Obal: soft, Stav: 5 / 5, In the age of Oprah, Dr. Phil, and countless other self - help disciplinarians, indulging in any kind of pleasurable pastime is on the brink of extinction. But it's not too late to revive those lost pleasures that make life worth living. The Hedonism Handbook can help put the three - martini lunch, the baguette with real butter, the deep tan, the unfiltered cigarette, or the simple act of lying in a hammock under the stars back within our grasp. A tongue - in - cheek, satirical guide to the "good" life, The Hedonism Handbook will help us reclaim it all. With his characteristic wit, author Michael Flocker combines humorous reviews of historical excesses, suggestions for everyday indulgences, lists of hedonistic icons with famous quotes and earnest warnings about the perils of structured living. Made up of ten worldly wise chapters arranged to form a journey for the reader - a path fr_om the straight - and - narrow into wide - open fields of frivolity - The Hedonism Handbook will help readers master the lost arts of leisure and pleasure. It provides an entertaining, yet (if you're not careful), life - changing read.

Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength
Baumeister, Roy F. - Tierney, J. Penguin Books 2012, počet strán 291

Obal: soft, Stav: 4 / 5, self - control. In what became one of the most cited papers in social science literature, Baumeister discovered that willpower actually operates like a muscle: it can be strengthened with practice and fatigued by overuse. Willpower is fueled by glucose, and it can be bolstered simply by replenishing the brain's store of fuel. That's why eating and sleeping - and especially failing to do either of those - have such dramatic effects on self - control (and why dieters have such a hard time resisting temptation) . Baumeister's latest research shows that we typically spend four hours every day resisting temptation. No wonder people around the world rank a lack of self - control as their biggest weakness. Willpower looks to the lives of entrepreneurs, parents, entertainers, and artists - including David Blaine, Eric Clapton, and others - who have flourished by improving their self - control. The lessons fr_om their stories and psychologists' experiments can help anyone. You learn not only how to build willpower but also how to conserve it for crucial moments by setting the right goals and using the best new techniques for monitoring your progress. Once you master these techniques and establish the right habits, willpower gets easier: you'll need less conscious mental energy to avoid temptation. That's neither magic nor empty self - help sloganeering, but rather a solid path to a better life. Combining the best of modern social science with practical wisdom, Baumeister and Tierney here share the definitive compendium of modern lessons in willpower. As our society has moved away fr_om the virtues of thrift and self - denial, it often feels helpless because we face more temptations than ever. But we also have more knowledge and better tools for taking control of our lives. However we define happiness - a close - knit family, a satisfying career, financial security - we won't reach it without mastering self - control.
