Book Excerpt :

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 Short Summary:

DESCRIPCION DEL LIBRO ORIGINAL: Este libro audaz y muy sagaz presenta 48 ideas que nos abren los ojos y nos preparan para el mundo competitivo en el que nos movemos. 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 Short Summary:

"A masterly book" —Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan "A classic" —Simon Kuper, Financial Times An economist explains five laws that confirm our worst fears: stupid people can and do rule the world Throughout history, a powerful force has hindered the growth of human welfare and happiness. It is more powerful than the Mafia or the military. It has global catastrophic effects and can be found anywhere from the world's most powerful boardrooms to your local bar. It is human stupidity. Carlo M. Cipolla, noted professor of economic history at the UC Berkeley, created this vitally important book in order to detect and neutralize its threat. Both hilarious and dead serious, it will leave you better equipped to confront political realities, unreasonable colleagues, or your next dinner with your in-laws. The Laws: 1. Everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals among us. 2. The probability that a certain person is stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person. 3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person while deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses themselves. 4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. 5. A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.

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.

Book Short Summary:

From the New York Times–bestselling author of Where Good Ideas Come From and Extra Life, a new look at the power and legacy of great ideas. In this illustrated history, Steven Johnson explores the history of innovation over centuries, tracing facets of modern life (refrigeration, clocks, and eyeglass lenses, to name a few) from their creation by hobbyists, amateurs, and entrepreneurs to their unintended historical consequences. Filled with surprising stories of accidental genius and brilliant mistakes—from the French publisher who invented the phonograph before Edison but forgot to include playback, to the Hollywood movie star who helped invent the technology behind Wi-Fi and Bluetooth—How We Got to Now investigates the secret history behind the everyday objects of contemporary life. In his trademark style, Johnson examines unexpected connections between seemingly unrelated fields: how the invention of air-conditioning enabled the largest migration of human beings in the history of the species—to cities such as Dubai or Phoenix, which would otherwise be virtually uninhabitable; how pendulum clocks helped trigger the industrial revolution; and how clean water made it possible to manufacture computer chips. Accompanied by a major six-part television series on PBS, How We Got to Now is the story of collaborative networks building the modern world, written in the provocative, informative, and engaging style that has earned Johnson fans around the globe.

Book Short Summary:

Deep trade agreements (DTAs) cover not just trade but additional policy areas, such as international flows of investment and labor and the protection of intellectual property rights and the environment. Their goal is integration beyond trade or deep integration. These agreements matter for economic development. Their rules influence how countries (and hence, the people and firms that live and operate within them) transact, invest, work, and ultimately, develop. Trade and investment regimes determine the extent of economic integration, competition rules affect economic efficiency, intellectual property rights matter for innovation, and environmental and labor rules contribute to environmental and social outcomes. This Handbook provides the tools and data needed to analyze these new dimensions of integration and to assess the content and consequences of DTAs. The Handbook and the accompanying database are the result of collaboration between experts in different policy areas from academia and other international organizations, including the International Trade Centre (ITC), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), and World Trade Organization (WTO).

Book Short Summary:

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

Book Short Summary:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER 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.

Book Short Summary:

Although political and legal institutions are essential to any nation's economic development, the forces that have shaped these institutions are poorly understood. Drawing on rich evidence about the development of the American states from the mid-nineteenth to the late twentieth century, this book documents the mechanisms through which geographical and historical conditions--such as climate, access to water transportation, and early legal systems--impacted political and judicial institutions and economic growth. The book shows how a state's geography and climate influenced whether elites based their wealth in agriculture or trade. States with more occupationally diverse elites in 1860 had greater levels of political competition in their legislature from 1866 to 2000. The book also examines the effects of early legal systems. Because of their colonial history, thirteen states had an operational civil-law legal system prior to statehood. All of these states except Louisiana would later adopt common law. By the late eighteenth century, the two legal systems differed in their balances of power. In civil-law systems, judiciaries were subordinate to legislatures, whereas in common-law systems, the two were more equal. Former civil-law states and common-law states exhibit persistent differences in the structure of their courts, the retention of judges, and judicial budgets. Moreover, changes in court structures, retention procedures, and budgets occur under very different conditions in civil-law and common-law states. The Evolution of a Nation illustrates how initial geographical and historical conditions can determine the evolution of political and legal institutions and long-run growth.

Book Short Summary:

The compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime New York Times bestseller about one man’s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents’ indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa’s tyrannical white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle. Born a Crime is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life. The eighteen personal essays collected here are by turns hilarious, dramatic, and deeply affecting. Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Trevor illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a moving and searingly funny portrait of a boy making his way through a damaged world in a dangerous time, armed only with a keen sense of humor and a mother’s unconventional, unconditional love.

Book Short Summary:

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 Short Summary:

An Invitation to Community and Models for Connection After almost every presentation activist and writer Mia Birdsong gives to executives, think tanks, and policy makers, one of those leaders quietly confesses how much they long for the profound community she describes. They have family, friends, and colleagues, yet they still feel like they're standing alone. They're "winning" at the American Dream, but they're lonely, disconnected, and unsatisfied. It seems counterintuitive that living the "good life"--the well-paying job, the nuclear family, the upward mobility--can make us feel isolated and unhappy. But in a divided America, where only a quarter of us know our neighbors and everyone is either a winner or a loser, we've forgotten the key element that helped us make progress in the first place: community. In this provocative, groundbreaking work, Mia Birdsong shows that what separates us isn't only the ever-present injustices built around race, class, gender, values, and beliefs, but also our denial of our interdependence and need for belonging. In response to the fear and discomfort we feel, we've built walls, and instead of leaning on each other, we find ourselves leaning on concrete. Through research, interviews, and stories of lived experience, How We Show Up returns us to our inherent connectedness where we find strength, safety, and support in vulnerability and generosity, in asking for help, and in being accountable. Showing up--literally and figuratively--points us toward the promise of our collective vitality and leads us to the liberated well-being we all want.

Book Short Summary:

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 Short Summary:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 We are all born unique, with certain primal inclinations that draw us to certain experiences and away from others. As these forces move us here or there, they influence the development of our minds in very particular ways. #2 The author was searching and exploring, and he was constantly writing. He met a man named Joost Elffers in Italy who asked him if he had any ideas for a book. He suddenly had the idea for his first book, The 48 Laws of Power, which would eventually become a success. #3 You possess an inner force that seeks to guide you toward your Life’s Task. This force was clear to you in childhood, but as you listen to parents and peers, to the daily anxieties that wear away at you, it tends to fade. #4 Marie Curie, the future discoverer of radium, was four years old when she entered her father’s laboratory and stood transfixed before a glass case that contained all kinds of laboratory instruments for chemistry and physics experiments.

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. In this summary, you will discover the mechanisms and techniques used for 3,000 years by men in their quest for power. You will also discover : the three times of power; the importance of an impeccable reputation; that manipulation is your best weapon and patience your best defense. Power is the ability to impose one's will in spite of obstacles. While it is often considered amoral and dangerous to society, it remains at the heart of all human relationships. Power relationships are therefore inevitable in society. Thus, each civilization presents itself as wiser than the previous one, but the same vices (greed, jealousy, revenge, betrayal) are inevitably present and provoke power struggles. He who wishes to renounce all power games is either condemned to impotence and misfortune, or is a skillful manipulator to be wary of. You will gain nothing by denying the omnipresence of power: this is an obvious fact that you must face. "Power" is a real survival manual for power, based on the experiences and works of the most illustrious men of power. Stop suffering, learn how to identify the behaviors of your opponents and how to establish your will thanks to the 48 laws of power! *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
