BMW's M5 was a simple concept: a production 5 Series saloon re-developed for high performance by the Motorsport division. The M5 was the car that really initiated the legend of the M-cars from BMW; the letter M had been applied to a high-performance BMW as early as 1978, but that year's M1 was an exotic supercar. It had the right image, but the M1 was never going to bring in major profits. The M5 was much simpler in concept. It was and remains a production 5 Series saloon, redeveloped for ultra-high performance. Manufacturing costs were minimized, allowing BMW to price the car more attractively and still bring in healthy profits. This new book charts the development of the M5 across five generations. For all fans of the BMW M5, this book provides essential background, and is packed with the facts and details that make the M5 legend come alive. The M5 is still in production and remains the benchmark high-performance saloon wherever it is sold. This is essential background reading for all BMW M5 fans and motoring enthusiasts and is superbly illustrated with 211 colour photographs.

BMW, that most performance-oriented of car companies, had no affordable sports roadster in its line-up before 1995. Stung into action by Mazda's revival of the classic two-seater roadster, the Germany company quickly staked its claim with the Z3, a classic long-nose, short-tail design that used existing BMW mechanical hardware to good effect. This new book tells the story of BMW's Z3 and Z4 two-seater roadsters and coupes, which since 1995 have been at the forefront of the affordable sports car market. The history of the Z3 and both generations of Z4 are covered as well as full specifications of all models; the formidable M Power derivatives and a guide to buying and owning. The book is profusely illustrated with over 200 colour photographs and diagrams. Contents include: Historical background to BMW's arrival in the two-seater sports car market; Complete history of the Z3 and both generations of Z4; Full specifications of all models; The formidable M Power derivatives; Guide to buying and owning.

Der Gegenentwurf zum unproduktiven Unternehmensalltag Wenn ein Unternehmen erfolgreich sein will, benötigt es angeblich hoch bezahlte Direktoren, lange Meetings, ein großes Werbebudget, Fünfjahrespläne und vor allem ständiges Wachstum. So weit die Theorie. In der Praxis kommen die Software-Unternehmer Jason Fried und David Heinemeier Hansson schon seit 10 Jahren ohne all das aus – und haben Erfolg. Die Autoren repräsentieren eine zukunftsweisende Geschäftskultur, die dabei ist, die alten Konzern-Dinosaurier das Fürchten zu lehren. Smart sind die neuen Unternehmer, beweglich, unprätentiös und technisch auf der Höhe. Arbeit ist für sie kein Selbstzweck, und Lebensqualität gehört ebenso zum Business wie die unvermeidliche menschliche Unzulänglichkeit. Nüchtern und wirksam setzt sich „Rework“ von hochtrabenden Begriffen wie „Reform“ oder „Revolution“ ab. Entstanden ist eine ketzerische „Business-Bibel“, die keine Management-Phrasen herbetet, sondern Mut macht zu echter Eigenständigkeit. Zu Recht schrieb ein Rezensent: „Sie können dieses Buch ignorieren, aber auf eigene Gefahr“.

Ständige Ablenkung ist heute das Hindernis Nummer eins für ein effizienteres Arbeiten. Sei es aufgrund lauter Großraumbüros, vieler paralleler Kommunikationskanäle, dauerhaftem Online-Sein oder der Schwierigkeit zu entscheiden, was davon nun unsere Aufmerksamkeit am meisten benötigt. Sich ganz auf eine Sache konzentrieren zu können wird damit zu einer raren, aber wertvollen und entscheidenden Fähigkeit im Arbeitsalltag. Cal Newport prägte hierfür den Begriff "Deep Work", der einen Zustand völlig konzentrierter und fokussierter Arbeit beschreibt, und begann die Regeln und Denkweisen zu erforschen, die solch fokussiertes Arbeiten fördern. Mit seiner Deep-Work-Methode verrät Newport, wie man sich systematisch darauf trainiert, zu fokussieren, und wie wir unser Arbeitsleben nach den Regeln der Deep-Work-Methode neu organisieren können. Wer in unserer schnelllebigen und sprunghaften Zeit nicht untergehen will, für den ist dieses Konzept unerlässlich. Kurz gesagt: Die Entscheidung für Deep Work ist eine der besten, die man in einer Welt voller Ablenkungen treffen kann.
