Mathematik versteht man oder eben nicht. Der eine ist dafür natürlich begabt, dem anderen bleibt dieses Fach für immer ein Rätsel. Stimmt nicht, sagt nun Barbara Oakley und zeigt mit ihrem Buch, dass wirklich jeder ein Gespür für Zahlen hat. Mathematik braucht nämlich nicht nur analytisches Denken, sondern auch den kreativen Geist. Denn noch mehr als um Formeln geht es um die Freiheit, einen der vielen möglichen Lösungsansätze zu finden. Der Weg ist das Ziel. Und wie man zum richtigen Ergebnis kommt, ist eine Kunst, die man entwickeln, entdecken und in sich wecken kann. Die Autorin vermittelt eine Vielfalt an Techniken und Werkzeugen, die das Verständnis von Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft grundlegend verbessern. (K)ein Gespür für Zahlen nimmt Ihnen — vor allem wenn Sie sich in Schule, Uni oder Beruf mathematisch oder naturwissenschaftlich beweisen müssen — nicht nur die Grundangst, sondern stärkt Ihren Mut, Ihren mathematischen Fähigkeiten zu vertrauen. So macht Mathe Spaß!

From learning to develop a style that appeals to your older colleagues, to discovering the key trends affecting your career, to mastering the classic rules of excellence that never go out of style, Becoming the Boss helps you identify your next professional move and shows you how to get there.

Die amerikanische Megaversität ist eine ganz normale amerikanische Hochschule ... nur größer. Viel größer. Hunderttausende Studenten, die ihren täglichen Verrichtungen nachgehen, sind in dem Arkolog-ähnlichen Gebäude untergebracht: Politische Versammlungen, Demonstrationen, Vorlesungen, Partys ... alles geht seinen Gang. Wie kann es in dieser Idylle aber geschehen, dass ein Student bei einem harmlosen Spiel in der Kanalisation der Universität von mutierten Ratten zu Tode gebissen wird? Und was hat es mit den seltsamen Männern in luftdichten Schutzanzügen zu tun, die Fässer unbekannten Inhalts durch die tiefsten Kellergeschosse des Gebäudekomplexe transportieren? Mit Big U, seinem ersten, 1984 erschienenen Roman, hat Neal Stephenson eine rabenschwarze Swift'sche Satire geschrieben, in der sich spätere Meisterwerke wie Snow Crash, Diamond Age und Cryptonomicon bereits erahnen lassen. Nun liegt der lange vergessene Roman endlich auch in deutscher Übersetzung vor.

Millennials have only just begun their reign as the largest generation in the workplace. But they are not alone. For the next decade at least, these young professionals will be working side by side with more established generations, including the Baby Boomers who are working longer than ever, and an entirely new group coming up, Generation Z. This means within any organization, any team, any meeting, any marketing opportunity, you may find any combination of generations. Each of these age groups has their own attitude, expectations, and professional style. To lead and succeed in any organization today, you must adapt to how Millennials work, while continuing to accommodate their older colleagues and paying attention to the next generations coming up. The Remix shows you how to adapt and win through proven strategies that serve all generations’ needs. As the leading expert on generations in the workplace, Lindsey Pollak combines the most recent data from a variety of authoritative sources with her own original research, as well as detailed case studies from her Fortune 500 clients.

Alle Leser sind im Grunde auf der Suche nach der einen Erkenntnis, die nicht nur ihre intellektuelle Neugier befriedigt, sondern ihnen Anleitung gibt, ihr Leben glücklicher und erfüllter zu gestalten. Diese eine Erkenntnis – „The Secret“, wie Autorin Rhonda Byrne es nennt – war wenigen Auserwählten der Menschheitsgeschichte gegenwärtig. Die Smaragdtafel des Hermes Trismegistos, die Keimzelle aller heute bestehenden esoterischen Systeme, hat es ausgedrückt mit den Worten: „Wie innen, so außen“. Große Geister wie Platon, Leonardo da Vinci und Einstein haben um das Geheimnis gewusst; moderne Autoren wie Neale Donald Walsch und Bärbel Mohr haben in jüngster Zeit eine Millionen-Leserschaft damit inspiriert. „The Secret“, das als Dokumentarfilm schon weltweit erfolgreich lief, beweist in einer überzeugenden Mischung aus Erklärungen der Autorin und Zitaten bekannter Weisheitslehrer die Wahrheit einiger grundlegender Erkenntnisse: Wir sind selbst Schöpfer unserer Realität. Die Dinge, die uns im Alltag begegnen, haben wir durch die eigene Gedankenenergie angezogen. Die Kraft, die wir „Gott“ nennen, war und ist nie wirklich von uns getrennt. Einige Bestsellerautoren schicken ihre Helden auf die spannende Suche nach einem fiktiven Geheimnis. Mit „The Secret“ werden Sie selbst zum Sucher und können einen Schatz finden – nicht fiktiv, sondern wirklich.

Contrary to what students, and society, are conditioned to think, obtaining a college degree does not automatically result in a job, let alone a dream career. In the last year, alone, half of college graduates are either jobless or underemployed in positions that don’t fully use their skills and knowledge. Authors Tori Randolph Terhune, a gainfully-employed young college graduate herself, and Betsy A. Hays, a college professor, show readers what they can do in college to successfully pave the way for future employment in Land Your Dream Career. The authors provide eleven easy-to-follow strategies for effectively using time on campus to start building a career. Terhune and Hays leads students through content designed to help students set themselves up for success, without focusing on grades or papers. The eleven steps include tips about how students can become experts in their fields, build their brand, get involved in and outside the classroom, allow for wiggle room, network, follow the 75/25 rule (75% thinking, 25% doing) and use new media, such as social networking and blogging, to launch their career. Any student looking for that connection from college to getting to their dream career needs to read Land Your Dream Career. Terhune and Hays make it known that landing a good job is not impossible!
