Стивен Пинкер: Чистый лист: Природа человека. Кто и почему отказывается признавать ее сегодня
  

Аннотация: На протяжении нескольких столетий многие интеллектуалы пытались установить принципы справедливости, основываясь на убеждении, что человек рождается «чистым листом», на котором родители и общество записывают его биографию. Многие авторы отчаянно пытаются дискредитировать предположение о врожденном характере человеческих свойств, ведь если люди рождаются разными, то оправданы дискриминация и расизм, если человек – продукт биологии, тогда свобода воли является всего лишь мифом, а жизнь не имеет высшего смысла и цели. Пинкер убедительно показывает, что отказ от анализа вопросов человеческой природы не только противоречит современным открытиям в генетике, нейробиологии и теории эволюции, но и искажает наши представления о самих себе. Наследуются ли интеллект и таланты? Можно ли искоренить насилие в отношениях между людьми и государствами? Существует ли свобода воли, а вместе с ней – и ответственность за свои поступки? Об этих вопросах рассуждает когнитивный психолог Стивен Пинкер в одной из самых значимых своих книг.

Shapiro Jeffrey R. и др.: Windows 10 Anniversary Update Bible
  

Аннотация: Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques The most challenging parts of teaching mathematics are engaging students and helping them understand the connections between mathematics concepts. In this volume, you'll find a collection of low floor, high ceiling tasks that will help you do just that, by looking at the big ideas at the fourth-grade level through visualization, play, and investigation. During their work with tens of thousands of teachers, authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams heard the same message—that they want to incorporate more brain science into their math instruction, but they need guidance in the techniques that work best to get across the concepts they needed to teach. So the authors designed Mindset Mathematics around the principle of active student engagement, with tasks that reflect the latest brain science on learning. Open, creative, and visual math tasks have been shown to improve student test scores, and more importantly change their relationship with mathematics and start believing in their own potential. The tasks in Mindset Mathematics reflect the lessons from brain science that: There is no such thing as a math person – anyone can learn mathematics to high levels. Mistakes, struggle and challenge are the most important times for brain growth. Speed is unimportant in mathematics. Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics. With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.

Marcello Minenna и др.: The Incomplete Currency
  

Аннотация: A fact-based treatise on the Eurozone crisis, with analysis of possible solutions

The Incomplete Currency is the only technical – yet accessible – analysis of the current Eurozone crisis from a global perspective. The discussion begins by explaining how the Euro's architecture, the relationship between finance and the real economy, and the functioning of the Eurosystem in general are all at the root of the current crisis, and then explores possible solutions rooted in fact, not theory. All topics are analysed and illustrated, making extensive use of examples, tables, and graphics, and the ideas presented are supported by data sets and their statistical elaborations throughout the book. An extensive digital component includes numerical simulations of public debt dynamics for different Eurozone countries, evaluations of the sustainability of programmes like the Fiscal Compact, and stress tests on the ability of institutions like the ESM to cope with major liquidity crises, and the spreadsheets used to calculate data in the book is provided for readers to access for themselves.

The survival of the European monetary union has been questioned due to the accumulation of structural imbalances and the negative effects of the global financial crisis. This book lays out the full extent of the problem, explains what caused it, and provides possible solutions backed by extensive data.

Dig down to the root of the Eurozone crisis

Learn why austerity doesn't fix anything

Understand how the Euro has changed economies

Consider possible strategies for recovery

In a macroeconomic context where the monetary policy is the prerogative of the European Central Bank and fiscal policy, hopeless austerity works against the economic recovery of the Eurozone countries. A positive attitude is difficult, but necessary. The Incomplete Currency is an insightful, important resource that guides readers toward real solutions.

Lawrence Spencer и др.: Reliable JavaScript
  

Аннотация: Create more robust applications with a test-first approach to JavaScript

Reliable JavaScript, How to Code Safely in the World's Most Dangerous Language demonstrates how to create test-driven development for large-scale JavaScript applications that will stand the test of time and stay accurate through long-term use and maintenance. Taking a test-first approach to software architecture, this book walks you through several patterns and practices and explains what they are supposed to do by having you write unit tests. Write the code to pass the unit tests, so you not only develop your technique for structuring large-scale applications, but you also learn how to test your work. You'll come away with hands-on practice that results in code that is correct from the start, and has the test coverage to ensure that it stays correct during subsequent maintenance. All code is provided both in the text and on the web, so you can immediately get started designing more complete, robust applications.

JavaScript has graduated from field-validation scripts to full-scale applications, but many developers still approach their work as if they were writing simple scripts. If you're one of those developers, this book is the solution you need to whip your code into shape and create JavaScript applications that work.

Write more concise and elegant code by thinking in JavaScript

Test the implementation and use of common design patterns

Master the use of advanced JavaScript features

Ensure your code's conformance to your organization's standards

If you're ready to step up your code and develop more complete software solutions, Reliable JavaScript is your essential resource.

Аннотация: The world’s most forward-looking CEOs recognize the real challenge facing business today: a fundamental shift in the nature of commerce. While sustainability programs, government action, and nonprofits are all parts of the solution, CEOs and other leaders must focus on social, environmental, and economic benefit—not only because it will make the world a better place, but because it will ensure lasting profitability and success in the business climate of tomorrow. The Breakthrough Challenge is both an inspiring call-to-action and a guide for this transformation, based on the work of The B Team, a major initiative uniting leaders in sustainability. As a founding advisor and member of The B Team, John Elkington and Jochen Zeitz map out an agenda for change. The most important goal for businesses must be redefining the bottom line to account for true long-term costs throughout the supply chain. To achieve this, leaders must rethink everything: what counts on balance sheets, how to incentivize performance, who does what in the C-suite, and even what inspires us. The Breakthrough Challenge draws on over 100 exclusive interviews to show this shift in action, sharing the pioneering work of leaders such as Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever; Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of The Huffington Post; Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, chairman of the Nestl

Фредерик Ленуар: Радость
  

Аннотация: Фредерик Ленуар – французский литератор, философ, научный сотрудник Высшей школы общественных наук Франции (EHESS). Ленуар изучал философию во Фрибургском университете в Швейцарии, где посещал лекции Эммануэля Левинаса.

Книги Ленуара («Радость», «Счастье. Философский справочник» и др.) неизменно возглавляют списки научно-популярных бестселлеров в Европе.

В книге «Радость» французский философ и литератор Фредерик Ленуар задается вопросом «что такое радость?».

Как достичь опыта радости и удержать его? В чем разница между радостью, счастьем и наслаждением?

В поиске ответа на поставленные вопросы он обращается к текстам величайших философов (Спиноза, Бергсон, Ницше etc.) и теоретиков психоанализа (Фрейд, Юнг), а также к различным религиозным учениям и практикам (христианство, буддизм, таоизм).

Rossi Clifford: A Risk Professional's Survival Guide
  

Аннотация: Implement the Common Core for ELA without all the stress A Non-Freaked Out Guide to Teaching the Common Core uses the often-neglected anchor standards to get to the heart of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)—teaching students the skills they need to be college and career ready. Each anchor standard is broken down into its key points, and a discussion of each anchor standard's central purpose helps outline the context for each required skill. This easy-to-read guide gives educators the kind of clear explanations, examples, and strategies they need to feel comfortable teaching the CCSS, and shows how CCSS skills can be integrated into virtually any existing lesson plan. Getting a firm grasp of the anchor standards is the quickest way to start teaching the key concepts of the CCSS, and this user-friendly guide is designed to pave the way for both the first-time teacher and the experienced pro.

Аннотация: Praise for CHANGE WITH CONFIDENCE “Phil Buckley is a world-class change leader and world-champion enthusiast for effective change management. Straightforward and engaging, Phil addresses the 50 questions all change managers need to answer with confidence in order to succeed. Rare too for an author in this field, he shares the ‘how-not-to’ as well as the ‘how-to.’ This is a book any manager wanting to succeed in change should keep close by.” – Professor Chris Bones, Dean Emeritus, Henley Business School; Professor of Leadership, University of Manchester; and award-winning author of The Cult of the Leader “Phil Buckley’s book gives excellent, practical advice on how to implement change in any private or public organization. What makes Change with Confidence so special is that it is organized around questions that anybody who is engaged in or leading change management will find to be key to their success. The real-life examples given for each question make this a very readable book. A must-buy for anybody who wants to avoid the most common mistakes in change management.” – Stefan A. Bomhard, President, Europe, Bacardi Martini Group “Change with Confidence provides leaders and leaders of change with a wealth of knowledge and experience that they can apply to their own change initiatives, and the real-world examples provide additional clarity on how to successfully manage or avoid common pitfalls.” – David Sculthorpe, CEO, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada Change Management is about helping people decide to change successfully If you have been charged with leading a change initiative, chances are you were chosen for the job—that is, you didn’t volunteer, but rather were tapped to lead or manage a large change project. You may have been given a short briefing and left to your own devices to succeed or fail in an uncertain, often threatening, environment. You may find yourself struggling to adapt your skill set to unfamiliar and anxiety-inducing conditions, conscious that your performance will affect your future career paths. Change with Confidence addresses the 50 biggest questions that change leaders ask time and again, and provides the context, examples, and advice to answer them well, and to enable successful, sustainable change. Whether you’re trying to figure it out, are in the planning stage, are actively managing or are working to make it stick, you’ll find guidance for a wide range of issues, including: Analyzing previous change initiatives to see what worked, what didn’t, and why Finding out who can influence your success or failure, help you, or trip you up Determining what resources you’ll need and how to get them Overcoming change fatigue and opposition to change. Although every change has its own circumstances, there are proven processes, tactics, and behaviors that lead to lasting success. Change with Confidence offers practical, experience-based advice on a difficult and stressful challenge.

Джиллиан Тетт: Проклятие эффективности, или Синдром «шахты». Как преодолеть разобщенность в жизни и бизнесе
  

Аннотация: Синдром «шахты», или «силосной башни» (the silo efect), волнует бизнес-сообщество уже не одно десятилетие. Усложнение организационной структуры, сужение специализации подразделений и сферы деятельности их сотрудников может привести к размытости общей стратегии компании и забвению ее основной цели. Эта проблема впервые была обозначена как дивергенция целей организации и описана такими социологами, как Г. Саймон и Ф. Селзник.

Шеф-редактор газеты Financial Times Джиллиан Тетт в предлагаемой читателям книге определяет синдром «шахты» более широко – как «любое строгое разделение функций, полномочий и представлений», в том числе взглядов и установок. Отвечая на вопрос, неизбежно ли возникает эта проблема при развитии организации, автор книги переводит анализ в русло социальной и культурной антропологии и предлагает нетривиальные бизнес-решения.

Книга адресована самому широкому кругу читателей, поскольку автор не только обращается к исследованию синдрома «шахты», но и дает примеры его успешного преодоления во всемирно известных организациях.

Стивен Хокинг: Моя краткая история. Автобиография
  

Аннотация: Стивен Хокинг долгое время откладывал создание автобиографической книги, потому как свою популяризаторскую миссию считал куда более важной. Однако с годами число людей, желающих записать его историю вместо него самого, росло. Так и родились эти записки – из желания соблюсти границы личного пространства.

Автор без обиняков рассказывает о своей жизни, семье, своей болезни и своей науке. Он дает ответы на многие – даже неудобные и личные – вопросы, которые ему только доводилось слышать. Значительное место и в реальной жизни, и на этих страницах занимает астрофизика.

Мехди Санаи: Взаимоотношения Ирана и Центральной Азии. Тенденции и перспективы
  

Аннотация: Между Ираном и Центральной Азией издавна существовали как культурные, языковые, этнические и религиозные отношения, так и тесные экономические и политические связи. И пусть за последние два десятилетия уровень экономического и политического сотрудничества между Ираном и странами Центральной Азии снизился, чему немало поспособствовали внешние и трансрегиональные факторы, исторические судьбы этих стран были и остаются связаны взаимными интересами.

Настоящая книга, ставшая результатом многолетних научных изысканий автора, была опубликована в 2011 году в Тегеране. Эта книга была призвана рассмотреть важные составляющие диалога Ирана и стран постсоветской Центральной Азии (Казахстан, Кыргызстан, Таджикистан, Туркменистан и Узбекистан), а равно сформулировать соответствующие принципы в области внешней политики для повышения эффективности региональной дипломатии.

Автор книги – иранский ученый и дипломат, Чрезвычайный и полномочный посол Исламской Республики Иран в Российской Федерации – подробно рассматривает политические, культурные, экономические связи Ирана с каждой из стран региона и с учетом положения России на постсоветском пространстве. Большой дипломатический и научный опыт делают его книгу в высшей степени нужной и востребованной в долгосрочном политическом планировании.

Эдвард Торп: Человек на все рынки: из Лас-Вегаса на Уолл-стрит. Как я обыграл дилера и рынок
  

Аннотация: Когда легендарный математик Эдвард О. Торп изобрел методику подсчета карт, он доказал то, что казалось невозможным: обыграть дилера в блэкджек вполне реально. Его удивительные успехи – и математически безупречный метод – породили такую сенсацию, что казино пересмотрели правила и мир азартных игр необратимо изменился. Потом Торп переключил свое внимание на «величайшее казино в мире» – Уолл-стрит. Разработанные и внедренные Торпом математические формулы, позволяющие обыграть рынок, возвестили о начале эры финансовой математики, в которой мы живем и по сей день.

«Воспоминания Эда Торпа читаются как триллер. В них замешаны потайные носимые компьютеры, от которых не отказался бы и Джейм с Бонд, зловещие персонажи, великие ученые и попытки отравления (не говоря уже о диверсии, после которой Эд должен был “попасть в аварию” посреди пустыни). Эта книга рисует портрет аккуратного, серьезного, организованного человека, посвятившего себя поискам жизни, знаний, финансовой безопасности и, не в последнюю очередь, удовольствий».

(Нассим Талеб)

«Я приглашаю вас принять участие в моей одиссее по мирам науки, азартных игр и рынков ценных бумаг. Вы узнаете, как мне удалось преодолеть всевозможные опасности и добиться успеха в Лас-Вегасе, на Уолл-стрит и в моей собственной жизни. В этом путешествии вы встретитесь с интересными людьми, от считающих карты игроков в блэкджек до специалистов по инвестициям, от кинозвезд до нобелевских лауреатов. Вы познакомитесь с опционами и другими производными финансовыми инструментами, а также с хедж-фондами и узнаете, как простая инвестиционная стратегия позволяет в долговременной перспективе обыграть всех, даже самых опытных, инвесторов».

І якби не міс Марпл, інспектор Скотленд-Ярду Ніл та вся лондонська поліція ніколи б не збагнули, навіщо злочинець підкладав у кімнату та в їжу відомого бізнесмена мертвих птахів, а отруївши, набив його кишені зернятками жита, навіщо потім «прибрав» його молоду дружину та навіть служницю…

Сванте Пэабо: Неандерталец. В поисках исчезнувших геномов
  

Аннотация: Имя Сванте Пэабо – практически синоним исследования древних ДНК как научной дисциплины. Его «Неандерталец» – увлекательный рассказ о сенсационном прорыве в методах восстановления картины эволюции нашего вида.

Шведский генетик Сванте Пэабо давно лелеял мечту, казавшуюся несбыточной: выделить ДНК из египетских мумий и, таким образом, “поближе познакомиться” с людьми, жившими тысячи лет назад. Юношеская одержимость повела его тернистым путем – через мучительный научный поиск, борьбу за чистоту экспериментов и интеллектуальную честность, дипломатические маневры и бюрократические войны. И завела намного дальше в глубину веков, к прочтению неандертальского генома, радикально меняющему все представления и о самих неандертальцах, и об их взаимодействии с предками современного человечества. “Неандерталец” – это не только увлекательный рассказ о сенсационном прорыве, но и документ, фиксирующий важную веху в истории науки: становление палеогеномики, новой дисциплины, позволяющей методом исследования древних ДНК восстанавливать картину эволюции нашего вида в таких подробностях, о каких мы раньше не смели и мечтать.

Аннотация: A practical step-by-step approach to hiring the right person. Every hiring manager knows that the traditional hiring and interviewing process is a poor tool for predicting organizational fit and future on-the-job success. Behavioral interviewing can improve your chances of picking the right candidate two to five times over traditional processes. It focuses on how the candidate works rather than on skills, qualifications, and impressions. The Talent Edge shows how you can develop a concrete understanding of what your own top performers do differently than the majority of their peers, and how to translate that knowledge into a better hiring system. While using case studies from organizations that have successfully transformed their hiring practices, the book articulates the business case for a Behavioral Interviewing system, and provides a roadmap for implementing it. Comprehensive coverage includes: how to write job profiles and translate them into questions and answers that can be used in the interview; how to prepare for the interview, ask questions, and probe for the right information. The book also offers advice on how behaviors that are defined and proven to be useful in the hiring process can be incorporated into performance management, career development, and succession planning.

Steve Sammartino: The Lessons School Forgot
  

Аннотация: If you can change education, you can change the world Edupreneur gives teachers the "how." You already know what needs to be done to improve education, but you may lack the support and processes to bring it to life—and that's where this book comes in. You'll walk through the four stages of innovation—dreaming, digging, making and sharing—and learn how to unleash ground-shaking change from the classroom up. Straightforward, highly practical and kick-in-the-pants inspirational, this book is your new companion for making education work. You'll read about passionate teachers who have raised attendance from 40% to 90%; you'll read about principals who took on the worst-performing schools and turned them around; you'll read about leaders who had the courage to take the reins of a school and turn it from good to great—and you'll learn how they did it and how you're entirely capable of the same kind of revolutionary change. This is a book not just for challenging schools, but for all educators who are passionate about providing a great education for every student, every day. Administrators, academics and politicians can debate endlessly about how to "fix our schools," ignoring the fact that their best innovators and catalysts of change are already right there in the classroom. You have plenty of ideas, so here's your license to make them happen. Edupreneur will help teachers in all schools to: Identify ways to improve day-to-day practice Overcome the challenges that hamper progress Create new solutions that sidestep old roadblocks Collaborate with similarly forward-thinking educators Imagine what education could look like if teachers were practically equipped to bring exciting new ideas to the classroom every day. Edupreneur helps you be that kind of teacher you've always wanted to be, with a clear framework for truly bringing on the change.

How can companies drive consumer preference and secure sustainable growth in this digital, social, and mobile age? The answer is through functional integration.

With Connected by Design, any company can leverage technological disruption to redefine its mission and foster greater brand loyalty and engagement.

Аннотация: A guide to promoting literacy in the digital age With young children gaining access to a dizzying array of games, videos, and other digital media, will they ever learn to read? The answer is yes—if they are surrounded by adults who know how to help and if they are introduced to media designed to promote literacy, instead of undermining it. Tap, Click, Read gives educators and parents the tools and information they need to help children grow into strong, passionate readers who are skilled at using media and technology of all kinds—print, digital, and everything in between. In Tap, Click, Read authors Lisa Guernsey and Michael H. Levine envision a future that is human-centered first and tech-assisted second. They document how educators and parents can lead a new path to a place they call 'Readialand'—a literacy-rich world that marries reading and digital media to bring knowledge, skills, and critical thinking to all of our children. This approach is driven by the urgent need for low-income children and parents to have access to the same 21st-century literacy opportunities already at the fingertips of today's affluent families.With stories from homes, classrooms and cutting edge tech labs, plus accessible translation of new research and compelling videos, Guernsey and Levine help educators, parents, and America's leaders tackle the questions that arise as digital media plays a larger and larger role in children's lives, starting in their very first years of life. Tap, Click, Read includes an analysis of the exploding app marketplace and provides useful information on new review sites and valuable curation tools. It shows what to avoid and what to demand in today's apps and e-books—as well as what to seek in community preschools, elementary schools and libraries. Peppered with the latest research from fields as diverse as neuroscience and behavioral economics and richly documented examples of best practices from schools and early childhood programs around the country, Tap, Click, Read will show you how to: Promote the adult-child interactions that help kids grow into strong readers Learn how to use digital media to build a foundation for reading and success Discover new tools that open up avenues for creativity, critical thinking, and knowledge-building that today's children need The book's accompanying website keeps you updated on new research and provides vital resources to help parents, schools and community organizations.

Аннотация: If you can change education, you can change the world Edupreneur gives teachers the "how." You already know what needs to be done to improve education, but you may lack the support and processes to bring it to life—and that's where this book comes in. You'll walk through the four stages of innovation—dreaming, digging, making and sharing—and learn how to unleash ground-shaking change from the classroom up. Straightforward, highly practical and kick-in-the-pants inspirational, this book is your new companion for making education work. You'll read about passionate teachers who have raised attendance from 40% to 90%; you'll read about principals who took on the worst-performing schools and turned them around; you'll read about leaders who had the courage to take the reins of a school and turn it from good to great—and you'll learn how they did it and how you're entirely capable of the same kind of revolutionary change. This is a book not just for challenging schools, but for all educators who are passionate about providing a great education for every student, every day. Administrators, academics and politicians can debate endlessly about how to "fix our schools," ignoring the fact that their best innovators and catalysts of change are already right there in the classroom. You have plenty of ideas, so here's your license to make them happen. Edupreneur will help teachers in all schools to: Identify ways to improve day-to-day practice Overcome the challenges that hamper progress Create new solutions that sidestep old roadblocks Collaborate with similarly forward-thinking educators Imagine what education could look like if teachers were practically equipped to bring exciting new ideas to the classroom every day. Edupreneur helps you be that kind of teacher you've always wanted to be, with a clear framework for truly bringing on the change.

Василий Осипович Ключевский: Павел I
  

Аннотация: «Император Павел I был первый царь, в некоторых актах которого как будто проглянуло новое направление, новые идеи. Я не разделяю довольно обычного пренебрежения к значению этого кратковременного царствования. Напрасно считают его каким-то случайным эпизодом нашей истории, печальным капризом недоброжелательной к нам судьбы, не имеющим внутренней связи с предшествующим временем и ничего не давшим дальнейшему. Нет, это царствование органически связано как протест – с прошедшим, а как первый неудачный опыт новой политики, как назидательный урок для преемников – с будущим. Инстинкт порядка, дисциплины и равенства был руководящим побуждением деятельности этого императора, борьба с сословными привилегиями – его главной задачей…»



Филипп Дормер Стенхоп Честерфилд: Письма к сыну
  

Аннотация: «Письма к сыну» английского писателя, публициста, философа-моралиста, историка Филиппа Дормера Стенхопа, графа Честерфилда (1694–1773) Вольтер назвал книгой весьма поучительной, самым лучшим из всего когда-либо написанного о воспитании. Нас поражает многое в этих письмах с точки зрения иной среды и эпохи, но мы прекрасно понимаем, что эта книга незаурядная и что она получает вневременной интерес именно потому, что является превосходным отображением эпохи, которой она порождена.
