100 titkos hely Ahová nem juthatsz be soha


A világ teli van titkos helyekkel, amelyek létezéséről nem is tudunk, vagy ha tudunk, nem látogathatjuk meg őket, hiába is szeretnénk. Pedig némelyik ott van a lábunk alatt, mint például a londoni Whitehall alagútjai, a 2-es moszkvai metró vagy a gázai övezet csempészalagútjai. Megint más helyek annyira titkosak, hogy hivatalosan el sem ismerik a létezésüket a kormányok, mint Amerikában a Mount Weathert vagy Észak-Koreában a Pektu-hegyen Kim Dzsongilnek épített bunkert. A szerző nyugatról keletre haladva bejárja az egész Földet: kezdi a Csendes-óceán nyugati részével, elidőzik egy kicsit az Egyesült Államokban, majd felkeres olyan kísértetvárosokat, mint a ciprusi Varószia és az ukrán Pripjaty, titkolt atomerőműveket például Iránban és Észak-Koreában, olyan rettegett titkosszolgálatok főhadiszállását, mint az orosz FSZB és az izraeli Moszad, sőt kuriózumként egy olyan helyet is, ahol a szabadba kitett hullákat vizsgálnak. A 100 titkos hely a láthatatlan látnivalók útikönyve, a világ legeldugottabb sarkaiba kalauzolja el az olvasót.

Myslete jako Steve Jobs


"Jedno jablko snědla Eva, druhé spadlo Newtonovi na hlavu a třetí stvořil Steve." Mají vás za podivné existence a táhne se to s vámi už od školy? Vždycky jste byli průšviháři? Připadáte si jako outsideři a ostatní vám to dávají znát? Ani tak ale není nic ztraceno. Naopak. Z jednoho kluka, který šel z extrému do extrému, od undergroundu k fanatickému veganství, moc se nemyl a nečesal, se stal jeden z nejúspěšnějších mužů planety. Jmenoval se STEVE JOBS. Svými vizemi od základu proměnil počítačový i hudební průmysl a přinesl nám některé z nejvyspělejších technologií, po kterých prahne celý svět. V roce 1976 založil se svým přítelem Stevem Wozniakem společnost Apple. Když z ní o devět let později musel odejít, jako vždy vytěžil z nepříznivé situace maximum a zakoupil společnost Pixar, studio animovaného filmu. Po jedenácti letech se znovu vrátil do Applu, aby ho transformoval v jednu z nejpopulárnějších firem na světě. Seznamte se s životní filozofií nekonformního podnikatele a jeho vypilovanými schopnostmi. Jobs věřil, že outsideři a buřiči posouvají lidstvo kupředu, protože se nebojí neustále zkoušet a měnit svět. Zkuste tedy myslet a pracovat jako on. Chce to opravdu kuráž, ale nyní i vy můžete být jako Steve Jobs.

How to Think Like Einstein


Best known as the creator of the world's most famous equation, E=mc2, Albert Einstein's theories of relativity challenged centuries of received wisdom dating back to Newton. Without his groundbreaking work in relativity and quantum physics, our knowledge of the cosmos might lag decades behind where it is today. But Einstein was not only an extraordinary scientific thinker. He was a humanitarian who detested war and tried to stem the proliferation of hitherto unimaginably destructive weapons that his work had in part made possible. He spent a lifetime fighting authoritarianism and promoting personal freedom, selflessly standing up to those who posed a threat to those ideals. He was also a bona fide superstar and was instantly recognizable to millions who had not the least understanding of the intricacies of his scientific theories. Even now, the image of the tussled-hair 'mad professor' poking his tongue out at the camera is familiar across the globe. In How to Think Like Einstein, you can explore his unique approach to solving the great scientific mysteries of his age and trace the disparate ideas and influences that helped shape his personality and outlook - for better and worse.

His work on black holes put him on the map, and he became globally famous for his A Brief History of Time, communicating the most difficult scientific ideas at a period when he'd lost the ability to speak. How to Think Like Stephen Hawking reveals the key motivations, desires and philosophies that make Hawking one of the world's most enduring talents. Studying how he overcame great adversity, fought his demons as well as his detractors and looked back to the origins of the universe, and with quotes and passages by and about him, you too can learn to think like the man who claims he can think in eleven dimensions.

How to Think Like Sigmund Freud


The work of Sigmund Freud, one of the most important thinkers of the past two hundred years, redefined the fields of neurology and psychotherapy and the way we view the human mind. Most strands of the psychoanalytic discipline can even today be traced back to the leaps in understanding he made all those years ago. But his greatest success was to make the esoteric mainstream. The Oedipus complex, transference, the unconscious, repression, free association, the libido: these are all ideas and techniques from the Freud school of thought that have permeated the public consciousness. How to Think Like Sigmund Freud examines these and more in a quest to know one mind above all: that of a person who struggled with his own neuroses while attempting to understand those of others. Discover how the motivations and philosophies of a man who dared to tackle issues others feared to transformed what was a murky study into a real science. With this book you too can think like the man who came to comprehend the human condition better than any other.
