Quicklet on Confucius's The Sayings of Confuciu...
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK Like many people out there, I sometimes visit quotations websites, just to read a few wise words, have my spirits lifted, and maybe get some ideas. And quotations by Confucius are always worth reading for their emphasis on human values and strengths. Confucius was fundamentally a humanist, believing that we each shape our own destiny. His words of wisdom rarely, if ever, suggested that we give up control of our lives to any higher beings or unseen powers. He always insisted that we can achieve our goals through being humble, hard-working and wise. One thing, however, that I think has stopped me from being overly enthusiastic about Confucius is that he does seem to dwell a lot on discipline and correct ways of behaviour, on ritual. And he seems to think a lot about working as part of a team, in a collective or something. But given that he lived at the time of Imperial China, that's understandable. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989. Among the more well known titles he has written for are The Guardian newspaper, Time Out magazine and the International Business Times website. He has edited a number of local and community newspapers, magazines and websites, and has, over the course of his career, worked for some of the largest publishers in Europe, including Emap, LLP and Mirror Group Newspapers. Abdul has also worked outside of the United Kingdom, moving to Abu Dhabi for a year to work on the first national daily newspaper in United Arab Emirates, The National; and he has consulted for media companies in Bangladesh, where he was born. Abdul briefly worked for a New York-headquartered cable television channel called AsiaNet as a news editor, and realised that although he loves researching, writing and other 'technical' parts of a journalist's job, he does not like presenting, preferring to be behind the camera or back in the studio. In his spare time, Abdul likes to spend time with his family, cooking, eating, watching films, listening to music, reading and writing. When he goes out he likes to watch movies at the best cinemas, see live music performances, and eat at good restaurants. He also loves gardening, fishing and going for long walks. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Confucius was a teacher, politician, thinker and philosopher who lived during the days of what's called Early Imperial China. It's believed that he was born in the year 551 BC-that's more than 2,500 years ago. His father was said to be a warrior who had had a number of successes in various battles and owned a fiefdom, although some sources say that he was actually a poor military officer and Confucius himself was brought up in poverty. Nontheless, Confucius belonged to a social class that was positioned somewhere between common people and the old nobility of Early Imperial China. This particular group of people seemed to have been like the modern middle classes in the West, and made progress in life by acquiring knowledge and skills. And although he had been a teacher and a student for a lot of his life, Confucius himself had apparently chosen a life in politics, and by the age of 53 he had worked his way up to the position of Justice Minister in Lu, one of the western provinces in ancient China.

Quicklet on Nassim Taleb's Fooled by Randomness...
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK When I was in school I considered a career in finance. Or to be more embarrassingly precise, I considered becoming an accountant. I chose the appropriate subjects and got myself onto a business degree course. I was still only 19 and you could say I was following a non-random course towards my career objective. But then, just months before I was supposed to start my degree course, in what might be considered random events, I became involved in newspapers and learned skills such as writing and page layout. I decided against the degree course. I managed to get some money together to launch my own publication. And I've been in the media ever since. I feel lucky that the circumstances that I found myself in at that time have resulted in a relatively long and moderately successful career in journalism, but I can't help thinking that none of it was planned and, therefore, on one level, it was random. I'm not sure Nassim Taleb, author of Fooled by Randomness, would agree with me, however. In fact, even if Taleb spent a wrote book explaining his thoughts on the matter, I'm not sure that I'd completely understand it-such is the depth to which he analyses events and the complexity of his theories about said events. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989. Among the more well known titles he has written for are The Guardian newspaper, Time Out magazine and the International Business Times website. He has edited a number of local and community newspapers, magazines and websites, and has, over the course of his career, worked for some of the largest publishers in Europe, including Emap, LLP and Mirror Group Newspapers. Abdul has also worked outside of the United Kingdom, moving to Abu Dhabi for a year to work on the first national daily newspaper in United Arab Emirates, The National; and he has consulted for media companies in Bangladesh, where he was born. Abdul briefly worked for a New York-headquartered cable television channel called AsiaNet as a news editor, and realised that although he loves researching, writing and other 'technical' parts of a journalist's job, he does not like presenting, preferring to be behind the camera or back in the studio. He also realised that, although reporting a story through the medium of television is obviously different from telling it through a newspaper or magazine, the heart and mind of every media company is researching and writing. In his spare time, Abdul likes to spend time with his family, cooking, eating, watching films, listening to music, reading and writing. When he goes out he likes to watch movies at the best cinemas, see live music performances, and eat at good restaurants. He also loves gardening, fishing and going for long walks. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Taleb touches on Darwin's theory of evolution. He does not share the widely held view that Darwinism can be applied to the business world. Meaning that he doesn't believe that the strongest companies will survive and the weakest will become extinct. 'Things are not as simple as that,' he writes. The problem, he explains, comes from randomness. 'Once randomness is injected into a system... what seems to be an evolution may be merely a diversion, and possibly regression...'

Quicklet on John Perkins's Confessions of an Ec...
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK I first came across John Perkins's Confessions of an Economic Hit Man a few years ago when I was living and working in Abu Dhabi, a tiny city-state which serves as the capital of a conglomerate of similar city-states-including Dubai-all collectively known as the United Arab Emirates, or the UAE, which itself is located on the eastern coast of the Arabian peninsula. And although the UAE had been peaceful and prosperous for many decades, I couldn't help but think about the fact that I was in the middle of the most dangerously volatile and highly militarised region on Earth. The year was 2008. The war in Iraq was still rumbling on and, in my more paranoid moments, I thought the conflict could escalate in a flash and instantly embroil other countries in the region. What I did not spend a single moment worrying about, however, was the unprecedented terror caused by the global economic crisis. Who did? I didn't think about it because, unlike armies, banks and financial institutions are forces of a largely invisible kind of activity. And I never knew finance could cause so much devastation. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989. Among the more well known titles he has written for are The Guardian newspaper, Time Out magazine and the International Business Times website. He has edited a number of local and community newspapers, magazines and websites, and has, over the course of his career, worked for some of the largest publishers in Europe, including Emap, LLP and Mirror Group Newspapers. Abdul has also worked outside of the United Kingdom, moving to Abu Dhabi for a year to work on the first national daily newspaper in United Arab Emirates, The National; and he has consulted for media companies in Bangladesh, where he was born. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The job of EHMs (and their colleagues) is to persuade countries to take out loans worth billions of dollars, often to pay for infrastructure projects that the EHMs themselves recommend, writes John Perkins in his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. If the persuasion tactics of the EHMs fail, the CIA 'jackals', as he calls them, take over and often assassinate the leaders of governments who do not co-operate-such as Jaime Roldos, president of Ecuador, and Omar Torrijos, president of Panama. Perkins starts his story by wondering how he had grown up to be involved in such a 'dirty business'. He remembers Ann, and her uncle, Frank, who suggests working for the NSA and being a Peace Corps Volunteer. Buy a copy to keep reading!

Biography of Linus Torvalds

ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK Linus Torvalds is considered in Europe, the United States, and beyond, to be one of the most important people of the past 100 years. Some people even call him a revolutionary hero. Why? Because Torvalds is the inventor and chief architect of Linux, a computer language that has gained worldwide acceptance and popularity. Linux forms the basis of a computer operating system in the same respect that DOS forms the basis of Microsoft Windows, or UNIX forms the basis of the Apple Mac operating system. Torvalds is also credited with other inventions such as the Git system for revision controlwhich he developed as a way to keep track of all the changes happening to Linux, (which has become way too massive a project for one person to manage). Git is essentially a file system for large software projects, according to Torvalds. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Linus Benedict Torvalds was born on December 28, 1969, in Helsinki, Finland. His family was part of Finlands Swedish-speaking minority, which represents around 5.6 percent of Finlands 5.4 million population. Both his parentsAnna and Nils Torvaldsare journalists who were radical activists during their student days at the University of Helsinki in the 1960s. Nils, who was a communist in the early days, has since somewhat moderated his views; he now combines politics with journalism, and won election to Helsinki City Council for the term 2009-2012. Nilss father, Ole, was a poet who won literary awards for his work during the 1940s, and then later in the 1970s. The family is believed to have named their computer genius progeny, Linus, after the American Nobel prize-winning scientist and peace activist Linus Pauling. But Torvalds himself once said, I think I was named equally for Linus the Peanuts cartoon character, adding that this makes him half Nobel-prize-winning chemist and half blanket-carrying cartoon character. Its likely that this is yet more evidence of Torvaldss modesty and self-deprecating nature.

Biography of Ai Weiwei
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK Ai Weiwei is Chinas most famous living, modern contemporary artist. His fame and notoriety transcend the art world and encompass the realm of our broader, global modern culture. Even if you dont know who he is, you have almost certainly seen at least one of his works. The Birds Nest stadium, in China, was the centerpiece of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Ai Weiwei was the artistic consultant for the project. In fact, he collaboratively created the design, and his inspiration was very simple: the stadiums interlacing structure is based on the woven baskets that Ai Weiweis wife likes to collect from local antiques markets in China. Under different circumstances, helping design an iconic stadium where the 2008 Olympics were staged would have been among Ai Weiweis proudest moments. But given that he has been constantly harassed, arrested and detained for much of his adult life by Chinese authorities ( bulldozed his studio, Ai Wewei has mixed feelings about it, and even asked that his name not be associated with it. MEET THE AUTHOR Abdul Montaqim is a journalist, based in London, and has been working in the media since 1989.

When he goes out he likes to watch movies at the best cinemas, see live music performances, and eat at good restaurants. He also loves gardening, fishing and going for long walks. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK By far the most astounding achievement of Ai Weiweis career as an artist so far has been the design and construction of the Birds Nest stadium in Beijing. Officially called the National Stadium, it was the centrepiece of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. And its design conceptnever before seen on such a scale in architecture and constructionwas, according to Ai Weiwei, based on the baskets that his wife, Lu Qing, buys from local antiques markets in Beijing. It is a stunning achievement. Once seen, never forgotten. There have been many spectacular venues for the Olympics over the years, but few, if any, stadia can live longer in the memory than the Birds Nest. Birds Nest was a name reportedly given to the stadium by local people who watched it being built in their midst. However, the initial design concept was proposed by Li Xinggang, of China Architecture Design and Research Group (CADRG), during the bidding process. Buy a copy to keep reading!
