River God Book Detail/ Review :

Tanus is the fair-haired young lion of a warrior whom the gods have decreed will lead Egypt's army in a bold attempt to reunite the Kingdom's shattered halves. But Tanus will have to defy the same gods to attain the reward they have forbidden him, an object more prized than battle's glory: possession of the Lady Lostris, a rare beauty with skin the color of oiled cedar--destined for the adoration of a nation, and the love of one extraordinary man. International bestselling author Wilbur Smith, creator of over two dozen highly acclaimed novels, draws readers into a magnificent, richly imagined Egyptian saga. Exploding with all the drama, mystery, and rage of ancient Egypt, River God is a masterpiece from a storyteller at the height of his powers.

Capitalism And Freedom Book Detail/ Review :

Selected by the Times Literary Supplement as one of the "hundred most influential books since the war" How can we benefit from the promise of government while avoiding the threat it poses to individual freedom? In this classic book, Milton Friedman provides the definitive statement of his immensely influential economic philosophy—one in which competitive capitalism serves as both a device for achieving economic freedom and a necessary condition for political freedom. The result is an accessible text that has sold well over half a million copies in English, has been translated into eighteen languages, and shows every sign of becoming more and more influential as time goes on.

Antifragile Book Detail/ Review :

Antifragile is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don’t understand. The other books in the series are Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and The Bed of Procrustes. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world. Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls “antifragile” is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish. In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better. Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear. Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world. Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb’s message is revolutionary: The antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it. Praise for Antifragile “Ambitious and thought-provoking . . . highly entertaining.”—The Economist “A bold book explaining how and why we should embrace uncertainty, randomness, and error . . . It may just change our lives.”—Newsweek “Revelatory . . . [Taleb] pulls the reader along with the logic of a Socrates.”—Chicago Tribune “Startling . . . richly crammed with insights, stories, fine phrases and intriguing asides . . . I will have to read it again. And again.”—Matt Ridley, The Wall Street Journal “Trenchant and persuasive . . . Taleb’s insatiable polymathic curiosity knows no bounds. . . . You finish the book feeling braver and uplifted.”—New Statesman “Antifragility isn’t just sound economic and political doctrine. It’s also the key to a good life.”—Fortune “At once thought-provoking and brilliant.”—Los Angeles Times From the Hardcover edition.

Book Detail/ Review :

Эпохальная, противоречивая личность в истории политической мысли и PR, Эдвард Бернейс (1891–1995) первым предложил научный метод формирования и манипулирования общественным мнением, которому дал название «инженерия согласия», ставшее теперь известным. Во время Первой мировой войны он активно работал в Комитете общественной информации (CPI), влиятельном пропагандистском аппарате, призванном «показывать, рекламировать и продавать» эту войну американцам – как войну, которая «сделает мир безопасным для демократии». CPI стал прообразом маркетинговых стратегий будущих войн.Применяя методы, усвоенные в CPI, а также некоторые идеи Уолтера Липпмана, Бернейс стал ярым сторонником пропаганды как инструмента демократической и корпоративной манипуляции народом. Сенсационная книга «Пропаганда» (1928) раскрывает его пугающе прозорливое видение пропаганды как способа управления коллективным сознанием в самых разных областях, включая правительство, политику, искусство, науку и образование. Читая эту книгу сегодня, мы с ужасом осознаем, во что превратились современные институты власти и бизнеса, если говорить об организованной манипуляции народом.

Get It Together is a spiritual book to help young adults get their lives together. This book is for those who choose to put their dreams and plans on hold for someone else, those who are confuse on finding the right person to spend their lives with, those who are wasting times on a guy or female who doesn't even appreciate them, and for those who are looking down on other people and countries. "Please remember, what ever or who ever meant to be will be" Time is clicking; it's time to find your purpose for being on earth. Get over it, get it together and get moving. By Ermitha Gracia the author. Read it is important, but put it in practice is the main point.
