Summaries of Book :

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

Book Excerpt:

This book brings together the cumulative results of a three-year project focused on the assemblies and administrative systems of Scandinavia, Britain, and the North Atlantic islands in the 1st and 2nd millennia AD. In this volume we integrate a wide range of historical, cartographic, archaeological, field-based, and onomastic data pertaining to early medieval and medieval administrative practices, geographies, and places of assembly in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Scotland, and eastern England. This transnational perspective has enabled a new understanding of the development of power structures in early medieval northern Europe and the maturation of these systems in later centuries under royal control. In a series of richly illustrated chapters, we explore the emergence and development of mechanisms for consensus. We begin with a historiographical exploration of assembly research that sets the intellectual agenda for the chapters that follow. We then examine the emergence and development of the thing in Scandinavia and its export to the lands colonised by the Norse. We consider more broadly how assembly practices may have developed at a local level, yet played a significant role in the consolidation, and at times regulation, of elite power structures. Presenting a fresh perspective on the agency and power of the thing and cognate types of local and regional assembly, this interdisciplinary volume provides an invaluable, in-depth insight into the people, places, laws, and consensual structures that shaped the early medieval and medieval kingdoms of northern Europe.

Book Excerpt:

From the former Governor of the Bank of Canada, a far-seeing guide to the powerful economic forces that will shape the decades ahead. The economic ground is shifting beneath our feet. The world is becoming more volatile, and people are understandably worried about their financial futures. In this urgent and accessible guide to the crises and opportunities that lie ahead, economist and former Governor of the Bank of Canada Stephen Poloz maps out the powerful tectonic forces that are shaping our future, and the ideas that will allow us to master them. These forces include an aging workforce, mounting debt, and rising income inequality. Technological advances, too, are adding to the pressure, putting people out of work, and climate change is forcing a transition to a lower-carbon economy. It is no surprise that people are feeling uncertain. The implications of these tectonic tensions will cascade throughout every dimension of our lives—the job market, the housing market, the investment climate, as well as government and central bank policy, and the role of the corporation within society. The pandemic has added momentum to many of them. Poloz skillfully argues that past crises, from the Victorian Depression in the late 1800s to the more recent downturn in 2008, give a hint of what is in store for us in the decades ahead. Unlike the purely destructive power of earthquakes, the upheaval that is sure to come in the decades ahead will offer unexpected opportunities for renewal and growth. Filled with takeaways for employers, investors, and policymakers, as well as families discussing jobs and mortgage renewals around the kitchen table, The Next Age of Uncertainty is an indispensable guide for those navigating the fault lines of the risky world ahead.

Brilliant distillations of the strategies of war—and the subtle social game of everyday life—by the bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power and The Laws of Human Nature Robert Greene’s groundbreaking guides, The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, and Mastery, espouse profound, timeless lessons from the events of history to help readers vanquish an enemy, ensnare an unsuspecting victim, or become the greatest in your field. In The 33 Strategies of War, Greene has crafted an important addition to this ruthless and unique series. Spanning world civilizations, synthesizing dozens of political, philosophical, and religious texts and thousands of years of violent conflict, The 33 Strategies of War is the I-Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. Abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Shaka the Zulu to Lord Nelson, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, as well as movie moguls, Samurai swordsmen, and diplomats, each of the thirty-three chapters outlines a strategy that will help you win life’s wars. Learn the offensive strategies that require you to maintain the initiative and negotiate from a position of strength, or the defensive strategies designed to help you respond to dangerous situations and avoid unwinnable wars. The great warriors of battlefields and drawing rooms alike demonstrate prudence, agility, balance, and calm, and a keen understanding that the rational, resourceful, and intuitive always defeat the panicked, the uncreative, and the stupid. An indispensable book, The 33 Strategies of War provides all the psychological ammunition you need to overcome patterns of failure and forever gain the upper hand.

Book Excerpt:

New York Times best-selling author and comedian-turned-motivational speaker, Kyle Cease, shows how your obsession with money is actually preventing you from living the life of your dreams. "I can't afford that." "Now's not the right time . . . I need to save up." "Quit my job? Are you nuts?!" Sound familiar? Money is one of the biggest excuses we make to not go after what we really want. Our fixation with money--the desire for more of it, and the fear of not having enough of it--is often really just a longing to feel safe. But this obsession with money is coming at a much bigger cost: our sanity, our creativity, our freedom, and our ability to step into our true power. This book is about eliminating the need to seek safety through the illusion of money, and learning to see ourselves for the perfection that we are--so that we can bring our gifts to the world in an authentic way, and allow ourselves to receive massive, true abundance as a result. Kyle Cease has heard excuses like the ones above countless times at his live events, and he has shown people how to completely break through them. In The Illusion of Money, he shares his own experiences as well as practical tools to help readers understand their ingrained beliefs and attachments to money, and how they can tap into our infinite assets and talents. "After 25 years as a successful comedian, actor, transformational speaker, author and junior-league amateur bowler, I've experienced many times how chasing money is not an effective way to create an abundant and fulfilling life. The most alive I've ever felt was after I left my comedy career at its peak to become a transformational speaker. I left tons of guaranteed money and so-called security for a complete unknown. It was terrifying--but what was on the other side of that terror was a completely different life that is not only more abundant financially, but has more freedom, more ease, more passion, more impact and more joy." -- Kyle Cease

Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER For the first time, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson opens up about his amazing comeback—from tragic personal loss to thriving businessman and cable’s highest-paid executive—in this unique self-help guide, his first since his blockbuster New York Times bestseller The 50th Law. In his early twenties Curtis Jackson, known as 50 Cent rose to the heights of fame and power in the cutthroat music business. A decade ago the multi-platinum selling rap artist decided to pivot. His ability to adapt to change was demonstrated when he became the executive producer and star of Power, a high-octane, gripping crime drama centered around a drug kingpin’s family. The series quickly became “appointment” television, leading to Jackson inking a four-year, $150 million contract with the Starz network—the most lucrative deal in premium cable history. Now, in his most personal book, Jackson shakes up the self-help category with his unique, cutting-edge lessons and hard-earned advice on embracing change. Where The 50th Law tells readers “fear nothing and you shall succeed,” Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter builds on this message, combining it with Jackson’s street smarts and hard-learned corporate savvy to help readers successfully achieve their own comeback—and to learn to flow with the changes that disrupt their own lives.

Book Excerpt:

We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work, and play—and thereby awaken to and embody more completely who you really are. Here, the teacher, scientist, and clinician who first demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness within mainstream Western medicine offers a book that you can use in three unique ways: as a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random; as an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read; or as an unfolding “lesson- a-day” primer on mindfulness practice. Beginning and advanced meditators alike will discover in these pages a valuable distillation of the key attitudes and essential practices that Jon Kabat-Zinn has found most useful with his students, including: Why heartfulness is synonymous with true mindfulness The value of coming back to our bodies and to our senses over and over again How our thoughts “self-liberate” when touched by awareness Moving beyond our “story” into direct experience Stabilizing our attention and presence amidst daily activities The three poisons that cause suffering—and their antidotes How mindfulness heals, even after the fact Reclaiming our wholeness, and more The prescription for living a more mindful life seems simple enough: return your awareness again and again to whatever is going on. But if you’ve tried it, you know that here is where all the questions and challenges really begin. Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights, and instruction to help us make that shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable, and loving connection with ourselves and the world.

Book Excerpt:

Interest in structured catalysts is steadily increasing due to the already proven, as well as potential, advantages of these catalysts. Updating the comprehensive coverage of the first edition published in 1998 with the latest science and applications, Structured Catalysts and Reactors, Second Edition gives detailed information on all aspects of structured catalysts and reactors, including: materials, mass transfer, selectivity, activity, and stability; catalyst preparation, design, and characterization; process development; modeling and optimization; reactor design; and operation costs and considerations. The book first examines how monolithic catalysts are used to clean exhaust gas from gasoline engines, treat industrial off-gases, burn fuels in commercial settings, and synthesize chemicals in two- and three-phase processes. It discusses configurations, microstructure, physical properties, and manufacture of ceramic and metallic monoliths before directing its focus to arranged catalysts and structured packings in terms of mass transfer. The book then explores catalytically active membranes and filters, featuring metallic membranes, permeation mechanisms, preparation and modeling, commercial membranes, and the latest applications, such as zeolitic membranes. Finally, several chapters present techniques for incorporating catalytic species into the structured catalyst support and controlling catalyst nanoporosity. This book conveys the scientific as well as economic advantages of using these unconventional catalytic techniques. With over 1500 references, tables, drawings, and photographs, as well as in-depth discussions and a new approach to catalytic processes, Structured Catalysts and Reactors, Second Edition is an essential reference for anyone working with or studying catalysis.

Book Excerpt:

“Boaler is one of those rare and remarkable educators who not only know the secret of great teaching but also know how to give that gift to others.” — CAROL DWECK, author of Mindset “Jo Boaler is one of the most creative and innovative educators today. Limitless Mind marries cutting-edge brain science with her experience in the classroom, not only proving that each of us has limitless potential but offering strategies for how we can achieve it.” — LAURENE POWELL JOBS “A courageous freethinker with fresh ideas on learning.” — BOOKLIST In this revolutionary book, a professor of education at Stanford University and acclaimed math educator who has spent decades studying the impact of beliefs and bias on education, reveals the six keys to unlocking learning potential, based on the latest scientific findings. From the moment we enter school as children, we are made to feel as if our brains are fixed entities, capable of learning certain things and not others, influenced exclusively by genetics. This notion follows us into adulthood, where we tend to simply accept these established beliefs about our skillsets (i.e. that we don’t have “a math brain” or that we aren’t “the creative type”). These damaging—and as new science has revealed, false—assumptions have influenced all of us at some time, affecting our confidence and willingness to try new things and limiting our choices, and, ultimately, our futures. Stanford University professor, bestselling author, and acclaimed educator Jo Boaler has spent decades studying the impact of beliefs and bias on education. In Limitless Mind, she explodes these myths and reveals the six keys to unlocking our boundless learning potential. Her research proves that those who achieve at the highest levels do not do so because of a genetic inclination toward any one skill but because of the keys that she reveals in the book. Our brains are not “fixed,” but entirely capable of change, growth, adaptability, and rewiring. Want to be fluent in mathematics? Learn a foreign language? Play the guitar? Write a book? The truth is not only that anyone at any age can learn anything, but the act of learning itself fundamentally changes who we are, and as Boaler argues so elegantly in the pages of this book, what we go on to achieve.

Book Excerpt:

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Library Journal | Vulture | The Verge | SYFYWire Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty perfect for fans of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and Uprooted, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts. On the streets of eighteenth-century Cairo, Nahri is a con woman of unsurpassed skill. She makes her living swindling Ottoman nobles, hoping to one day earn enough to change her fortunes. But when Nahri accidentally summons Dara, an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior, during one of her cons, she learns that even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences. Forced to flee Cairo, Dara and Nahri journey together across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire and rivers where the mythical marid sleep, past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises and mountains where the circling birds of prey are more than what they seem, to Daevabad, the legendary city of brass. It’s a city steeped in magic and fire, where blood can be as dangerous as any spell; a city where old resentments run deep and the royal court rules with a tenuous grip; a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound—and where her very presence threatens to ignite a war that has been simmering for centuries. *Finalist for the World Fantasy Award: Best Novel *Nominated for the Locus Award: Best First Novel *Finalist for the British Fantasy Award: Best Newcomer Featuring a stepback and extra content including a bonus scene and an excerpt from The Kingdom of Copper.

Estas "leyes" fundamentales son una combinación de acciones, pensamientos y estrategias que se pueden emplear para "jugar al juego del poder" La idea generadora de su autor, Robert Greene, es que el poder es un factor primordial en la promoción y éxito de un emprendimiento o negocio. Aprender el juego del poder requiere de una perspectiva especial para mirar al mundo, una mirada diferente de esa con la que hemos crecido, condicionados por nuestros padres que nos inculcaron los conceptos de "honestidad" y "justicia" que la sociedad considera como valores ideales. A medida que se avanza en la obra, el lector entiende que en las épocas en las que vivimos es peligroso y poco saludable mostrarnos ambiciosos y ávidos de poder. Debemos actuar con sutileza y astucia, para parecer justos y muy decentes aún sin serlo. La vida misma de Robert Greene fue un ejemplo de esto. Recorrió el mismo camino que la mayoría, hasta que decidió profundizar en la historia, observar los ejemplos de personalidades destacadas y aprender todo acerca de las estrategias para triunfar en un mundo despiadado. Así nacieron las 48 leyes del poder.

Book Excerpt:

Les 48 lois du pouvoir ont été écrites par Robert Greene et ont été publiées pour la première fois en 1998. Il est souvent considéré comme l'un des meilleurs livres à lire si vous voulez aller de l'avant dans la vie. Cela m’a amené à penser: «Pourquoi n’existe-t-il rien de tel pour notre communauté?" Beaucoup de gens parlent de ce que nous devons faire, de ce que nous devrions faire et de ce que nous pourrions faire en tant que communauté, mais rien de concret auquel nous pourrions tous nous asseoir, apprendre et établir des relations avec un individu. niveau. The 48 Laws of Black Empowerment a été écrit pour combler le fossé entre l'action individuelle et une communauté noire unie. Ce livre est divisé en six domaines d'importance pour la communauté noire. 1. Personnel 2. Famille 3. Finance 4. Communauté 5. Philanthropie 6. Activisme En travaillant pour nous améliorer en tant qu'individu dans ces domaines, cela entraînera automatiquement un changement de conscience de la communauté noire. Bien que The 48 Laws of Power soit un excellent livre, il n’a tout simplement pas été écrit pour nous ni pour notre communauté. Les 48 lois de l'autonomisation des noirs visent à faire progresser les affaires et la vie, tout en aidant vos amis, votre famille et votre communauté à aller de l'avant avec nous. Ce livre est par nous et pour nous.

Book Excerpt:

إلى أولئك الباحثين عن القوة، أو الذين يرقبون القوة، أو الذين يبتغون ما يحصنهم من غائلة القوة.. البعض يعبث بالقوة ويخسرها في غلطة قاتلة. ويعضهم يغلو أو يُقَصِّر فيها. وهناك آخرون يعدُّون العدَّة كاملة فيستطيعون أخذ القوة إلى جانبهم ببراعة خارقة لطبائع البَشَر. فعلى مَرِّ الدُّهور تساءل العلماء والفلاسفة:ما هي الدروس التي ينبغي لنا أن نتعلمها من نجاح أسلافنا ومن إخفاقاتهم؟ على الرغم من أن كتابات متنوعة كتبت عن القوة على مدى أكثر من ثلاثة آلاف سنة، هناك عوامل تشبكها جميعاً في موضوعات متكررة، إنها تلك الأفكار التي تُلَمِّح إلى جوهر القوة وتلوح إلى خصائص مُعَدِّلة لزيادتها ونقصانها. 1- لا تُشْرِقْ أبداً أكثر من السيد. 2- لا تضع ثقةً أكثر من اللازم في الأصدقاء وتعلَّم كيف تستخدم الأعداء. 3- اخْفِ نواياك. 4- قل دائماً أقلَّ مما هو ضروري. 5- يتوقف الكثير على سمعتك، فحافظ عليها بحياتك. 6- اكسب لفت الأنظار بكل ثمن. 7- اجعل الآخرين يقومون بالعمل نيابة عنك ولكن احصل على الفضل دائماً. 8- اجعل الآخرين يأتون إليك، واستعمل طعماً عند الضرورة. 9- اكسب من خلال أعمالك وليس من خلال النقاش أبداً. 10- العدوى: -تجنب التعيس وسيئ الحظ. 11- تعلم أن تبقي الناس معتمدين عليك. 12- استخدم الصدق والكرم بطريقة انتقائية لنزع سلاح ضحيتك. 13-عندما تطلب المساعدة، خاطب في الناس مصالحهم الذاتية وليس رحمتهم أو عرفانهم. 14-اتخذ وضع الصديق واعمل كجاسوس. 15- اسحق عدوك سحقاً كلياً. 16- استخدم الغياب لزيادة الاحترام والتكريم. 17-ابقِ الآخرين في رعب مقيم: -كرِّس جواً من استحالة التنبؤ بحركاتك. 18-لا تَبْنِ قلاعاً لحماية نفسك، فالعزلة خطرة. 19-اعرف مع من تتعامل، لا تُغْضِب الشخص غير المقصود. 20-لا تلتزم بأحد. 21-العب دور المغفل لتمسك بمغفل، أظْهرْ أنَّك أبلد من هدفك. 22- استخدم تكتيك الاستسلام: -حوّل الضعف إلى قوة. 23-ركِّز قواك. 24-العب دور رجل الحاشية الأمثل. 25-أَعِدْ تَشْكيلَ نفسك. 26-اخْفِ أخطاءك واحتفظ بكبش فداء قريب ليتلقى اللوم. 27-استغل حاجة الناس إلى الإيمان لخَلْق أتباع طقوسيين. 28-ادخل معمعة العمل بجرأة. 29-خطّط طوال الطريق حتى النهاية. 30- اجعل منجزاتك تبدو بلا جهد. 31- تحكّم بالخيارات واجعل الآخرين يلعبون بالأوراق التي توزعها. 32- داعب خيالات الناس. 33- اكتشف أداة الضغط على كل شخص. 34-كن ملكياً بطريقتك الخاصة: -تصرَّف كملك لتُعامَل كملك. 35-اتقن فنّ التوقيت. 36-احتقر الأشياء التي لا تستطيع امتلاكها: -فتَجَاهُلُها أفضل انتقام. 37-اخلق مشاهد آسرة. 38- فكِّر كما تحب، ولكن تصرَّف كالآخرين. 39-عَكّر المياه لتصطاد السمك. 40-احتقر الغداء المجاني. 41-تجنَّب الحلول محل رجل عظيم. 42-اضرب الراعي... -تتفرق الغنم. 43-حاول التأثير على قلوب الآخرين وعقولهم. 44- انزع السلاح وحرِّك الحِنْق بتأثير المرآة. 45-بشِّر بالحاجة إلى التغيير ولكن إياك أن تُصْلِحَ أكثر من اللازم دفعة واحدة. 46-لا تظهر كاملاً أكثر مما ينبغي. 47-لا تتجاوز العلامة التي استهدفتَها، وفي النصر اعْرفْ متى تتوقف. 48-اتَّخِذْ هَيئة لا شَكْلَ لها. العبيكان 2016

Some of you have probably read Robert Greene’s psychological book about how to earn power. Needless to say, we are living during the time when such laws have proven to be ineffective towards gaining a permanent power that won’t backfire. The tips and suggestions written in 48 Laws of Power do not necessarily come with how-to-sustain humanity at the same time. From backstabbing to being cunning, the book has over 48 ways to become an annoying member of the community that suck up to the boss all the time. History has shown enough to tell us that while people who do these things rise into power successfully, they are not for long.

Book Excerpt:

Music has long played a role in American presidential campaigns as a mode of both expressing candidates’ messages and criticizing the opposition. The relevance of music in the 2016 campaign for the White House took various forms in a range of American media: a significant amount of popular music was used by campaigns, many artist endorsements were sought by candidates, ever changing songs were employed at rallies, instances of musicians threatening legal action against candidates burgeoned, and artists and others increasingly used music as a form of political protest before and after Election Day. The 2016 campaign was a game changer, similar to the development of music in the 1840 campaign, when “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” helped sing William Harrison into the White House. The ten chapters in this collection place music use in 2016 in historical perspective before examining musical messaging, strategy, and parody. The book ultimately explores causality: how do music and musicians affect presidential elections, and how do politicians and campaigns affect music and musicians? The authors explain this interaction from various perspectives, with methodological approaches from several fields, including political science, legal studies, musicology, cultural studies, rhetorical studies, and communications and journalism. These chapters will help the reader understand music in the 2016 election to realize how music will be relevant in 2020 and beyond.

Book Excerpt:

For a long time we have recognised that the apparently unstoppable climate changes and disturbances of nature, the intensification in the rift between rich and poor, as well as the increasing unrest and migrant streams are indicative of a global state of emergency. Furthermore, the new risks to our health, for example due to multi-resistant microorganisms, allergies or cancer, are causing us concern. What can I still eat, whom can I still trust, and where will it all end? In the face of these problems many of us are overwhelmed by feelings of helplessness and powerlessness. How could we even find ourselves in such a situation? How can we overcome the paralysis, indifference and resignation? Every individual has the power to change something, because the economy and politics are dependent on mankind and not vice versa. An exciting analysis of the psychological and social backgrounds allows us to better understand the situation and introduces us to the concrete steps that each of us can take to free ourselves of this feeling of powerlessness.
