In diesem Buch geht es um den feuchten Klumpen Zellgewebe, der sich Gehirn nennt und für unterschiedlichste Phänomene in Ihrem Leben verantwortlich ist: von der echten und wahren Liebe über die Tatsache, dass Sie morgens aufstehen, bis zur Fähigkeit, sich die Schuhe zu binden. Ihre wichtigste Hardware überhaupt -- und Sie haben vermutlich noch kein Handbuch dazu! Hiermit halten Sie nun einerseits einen vergnüglichen populärwissenschaftlichen Führer durch Ihr Gehirn in den Händen, andererseits aber auch einen ganz konkreten Ratgeber zu Ernährungsfragen, Gedächtnistraining und psychologischen Themen. Ernährung und Schlaf Ihr Gehirn hat eine ordentliche Wartung verdient! Dazu gehören eine sinnvolle Ernährung und ausreichende Ruhephasen. Lernen Sie zunächst die Gehirnsysteme kennen, die für Ihre Zeitsteuerung und die schlimmsten Fressattacken verantwortlich sind. Macken und Marotten Das Gehirn arbeitet mit unzähligen Abkürzungen und automatischen Annahmen. Das kann viel Zeit sparen, Sie aber auch zu Trugschlüssen verleiten. Erfahren Sie, welche Fehler Ihr Hirn typischerweise macht, lassen Sie sich von optischen Täuschungen verblüffen und lernen Sie ein paar coole Party-Tricks kennen. Wachstum und Alter Es klingt erschreckend -- schon ab dem 20. Lebensjahr schrumpft das Gehirn wieder. Leute mit Köpfchen können das aber kompensieren, indem sie die Effizienz ihres Gehirns ankurbeln. Hier lernen Sie die besten Kniffe kennen, um gegen Ihr schlechtes Gedächtnis anzugehen und geistig fit zu bleiben. Thema ist auch, wie sich Ihr Gehirn insgesamt im Lauf der Zeit entwickelt -- das dürfte besonders für frisch gebackene Eltern und düster gestimmte Pubertierende interessant sein. Freude, Stress und Liebe Was unterscheidet das Gehirn eines Frischverliebten von dem eines Geisteskranken? Weniger als Sie glauben! Die Hardware des Gehirns kann Ihnen so einiges über die Rätsel menschlichen Verhaltens verraten ...

Eigentlich sollte man längst bei einem Termin sein, doch dann klingelt das Handy und das E-Mail-Postfach quillt auch schon wieder über. Für Sport und Erholung bleibt immer weniger Zeit und am Ende resigniert man ausgebrannt, unproduktiv und völlig gestresst. Doch das muss nicht sein. Denn je entspannter wir sind, desto kreativer und produktiver werden wir.

Es ist das Enthüllungsbuch, das die Präsidentschaft von Donald Trump erschüttert: Michael Wolffs «Feuer und Zorn» ist ein eindrucksvolles Sittengemälde der amerikanischen Politik unter Trump. Im Mittelpunkt ein Präsident, den seine Mitarbeiter wie ein kleines Kind behandeln, und der umgeben ist von Inkompetenz, Intrigen und Verrat. Der Bestseller-Autor Wolff beschreibt das Chaos, das in den ersten Monaten im Weißen Haus geherrscht hat, er enthüllt, wie nah die Russland-Verbindung an Trump herangerückt ist und wie es zum Rauswurf des FBI-Chefs Comey kam. Und er liefert erstaunliche Details über das Privatleben dieses Präsidenten. Über zweihundert Interviews hat Wolff mit den engsten Mitarbeitern des US-Präsidenten geführt, darunter auch der ehemalige Chef-Berater Stephen Bannon: Noch nie ist es einem Journalisten gelungen, das Geschehen im Weißen Haus so genau nachzuzeichnen. Herausgekommen ist das einzigartige Porträt eines Präsidenten, der selbst nie damit gerechnet hat, die Wahl zu gewinnen. Michael Wolffs Bericht aus dem Weißen Haus unter Trump ist in den USA ein Bestseller: ein aktuelles politisches Buch, das das sich wie ein Königsdrama von Shakespeare liest.
Zwischen 1863 und 1869 schuf Leo Tolstoi dieses Werk, das in seiner erzählerischen Breite auf bis dahin unerreicht kunstfertige Weise einen Historien-, Familien- und Bildungsroman vereinte. Hintergrund ist der Krieg zwischen Russland und Frankreich. Der mit über 200 Figuren überreich bevölkerte Roman schildert die Schicksale dreier Familien über mehrere Generationen hinweg. Tolstoi spring kunstvoll zwischen familiären, privaten Szenen und der Schilderung von Schlachten und kriegerischen Manövergesprächen hin und her und bietet so ein einen einmaligen Einblick in die russisch-aristokratische Seelenlage der damaligen Zeit. Das Buch ist psychologischer Spiegel und kulturphilosophisches Brennglas in einem. Der geschickte Aufbau des Buches und die sprachlich bis ins Letzte ausgefeilte Intensität ließen Tolstois Werk schnell zu einem Klassiker von Weltrang werden. »O Himmel, welch heftiger Überfall!« erwiderte der Fürst, ohne durch diesen Empfang in Aufregung zu geraten. Der Fürst trug die goldgestickte Uniform des Hofes mit Ordenssternen, seidene Strümpfe und Schnallenschuhe. Sein Gesicht zeigte beständig ein liebenswürdiges Lächeln. Er sprach Französisch, jenes gewählte Französisch, in dem unsere Großväter nicht nur sprachen, sondern auch dachten, und in dem gemessenen, herablassenden Ton eines einflußreichen Würdenträgers, der am Hofe alt geworden ist. Er näherte sich Anna Pawlowna, küßte ihr die Hand, indem er sein kahles, parfümiertes Haupt neigte, und ließ sich dann bequem auf einem Sofa nieder. »Vor allem, verehrte Freundin, beruhigen Sie mich über den Zustand Ihrer Gesundheit«, fuhr er in galantem Tone fort, der aber nicht frei von Spott war.

Through his collection of essays, originally published in Forbes magazine, entrepreneur Christopher Myers shares an honest account of building his company—BodeTree, an online financial management tool for small businesses. He provides invaluable insights and tips for others looking to start a small business. But this is no ordinary how-to book. Instead of proclaiming that he is a know-it-all dispensing the secrets to success, Christopher provides personal stories of accomplishments and failures. His advice is woven into three sections on starting your business, scaling your business, and staying sane. You will not only learn how to take control of your business decision making, planning, and funding, but you will also discover the importance of creating balance in management and in life. Christopher knows firsthand that responsibility overload can lead to anxiety and depression, and he helps readers navigate these issues. “One thing I’ve come to realize is that everything, good or bad, starts in your mind. What you think is, in fact, what you become,” Christopher says. Embrace the characteristics you admire in yourself and your business. It won’t be easy, but with the right mentality, you can find happiness and achievement.
Es ist die Geschichte einer Liebe: Maggie Nelson verliebt sich in Harry Dodge, einen Künstler – oder eine Künstlerin? – mit fluider Genderidentität. Harry hat bereits ein Kind, Maggie wird schwanger, zu viert bauen sie ein gemeinsames Leben. "Die Argonauten" ist eine ergreifende Geschichte queeren Familienlebens, zugleich erfindet Maggie Nelson eine ganz eigene Form der philosophischen Erkundung. Memoir, Theorie, Poesie: Es ist ein Buch, das sich nicht einordnen lässt und das unsere Einordnungen herausfordert mit seinem radikal offenen Denken. Im Geiste von Susan Sontag und Roland Barthes verbindet Maggie Nelson theoretische und persönliche Erkenntnissuche, um zu einer neuen Erzählung des Wesens von Liebe und Familie zu gelangen.
