Why is my jumper depreciating? Why are people so f***ing hung up about swearing? Why do the asterisks in that sentence make it okay? Why do so many people want to stop other people doing things, and how can they be stopped from stopping them? Why is every film and TV programme a sequel or a remake? Why are we so reliant on perpetual diversion that someone has created chocolate toothpaste? Is there anything to be done about the Internet? These and many other questions trouble David Mitchell as he delights us with a tour of the absurdities of modern life - Ryanair to Downton Abbey, sports day to smoking, Poundland to phone etiquette, UKIP to hotdogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense - drawn from Mitchell's Observer columns and including new material - Thinking About it Only Makes It Worse celebrates and commiserates on the state of things in our not entirely glorious nation.

Believing Makes Sense SCM PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Lucas Grollenberg is renowned for the natural liveliness and clarity of his writing, particularly evident in his books Jesus and Paul. The reason why he is so readable is that most of his work is done, not in a study, but with groups of people all over Holland, speaking and discussing with them the most complex questions until he is sure that communication has been established. This new book has grown directly out of his work. We may not be able to join personally in a Grollenberg discussion, but we can be caught up in his thinking as he tackles the fundamental questions arising from the Bible: the nature of Old and New Testaments, the character of the four Gospels, and Virgin Birth, the divinity of Jesus, the Resurrection and Ascension, and so on. There are also chapters about prayer and preaching. Few books have such spontaneity and charm, and convey not only the complexities of Christian believing in the modern world but also its sheer interest and enjoyment.

From the bestselling author of Blink and The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success overturns conventional wisdom about genius to show us what makes an ordinary person an extreme overachiever. Why do some people achieve so much more than others? Can they lie so far out of the ordinary? In this provocative and inspiring book, Malcolm Gladwell looks at everyone from rock stars to professional athletes, software billionaires to scientific geniuses, to show that the story of success is far more surprising, and far more fascinating, than we could ever have imagined. He reveals that it's as much about where we're from and what we do, as who we are - and that no one, not even a genius, ever makes it alone. Outliers will change the way you think about your own life story, and about what makes us all unique. "Gladwell is not only a brilliant storyteller; he can see what those stories tell us, the lessons they contain". (Guardian). "Malcolm Gladwell is a global phenomenon ...he has a genius for making everything he writes seem like an impossible adventure." (Observer). "He is the best kind of writer - the kind who makes you feel like you're a genius, rather than he's a genius". (The Times). Author, journalist, cultural commentator and intellectual adventurer, Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. His first book The Tipping Point captured the world's attention with its theory that a curiously small change can have unforeseen effects. His other international bestselling books are Outliers, which looks at the stories of exceptional individuals and reveals the secrets of their success, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking and What The Dog Saw, a collection of his most provocative and entertaining New Yorker pieces.

"Dear PHP, It's over between us. You can keep the kitchen sink, but I want my MVC. With TurboGears, I was able to shed the most heinous FileMaker Pro legacy 'solu-tion' imaginable. It has relationships based on fields that change frequently, causing 'disappearing data.' I replaced it with an easy to maintain TurboGears application. Defunkifying and normalizing many years worth of munged data took twice as long as developing the TurboGears's application itself. TurboGears's excellent set of tools and best-of-breed approach makes it so easy to build applications quickly." -Isaac Csandl, Manager of Information Technology, Chicago Legal Search, Ltd. "TurboGears has resulted in significant time savings for rPath. Before it was released, we ex-pected to spend significant time building a Web framework for our rPath Appliance Agent product. TurboGears sharpens our focus on building a quality application; it allows us to provide more value to our customers, rather than reinventing the Web wheel." -Michael K. Johnson, rPath Founding Engineer and Coauthor of Linux Application Development, Second Edition "I think this is the first time that a Web framework's functionality has been so obvious." -Bruce Eckel, Author of Thinking in Java and Thinking in C++ "TurboGears helped me build more complex Web applications more quickly and with fewer headaches than any other framework I've used. Just like Python itself, it made me more productive with a minimal learning curve." -Quentin Hartman, System Administrator "TurboGears has changed the way I develop Web applications, from model, to view, to controller. Thanks to the power of TurboGears, I was able to develop the first version of WhatWhat in less than a week of my spare time." -Jonathan LaCour, Development Team Lead, Optio "TurboGears has provided a way for me to greatly enhance my productivity by real-izing the potential of Web-based agile development with Python." -Brandon Goldfedder, Vice President of Engineering, Information Extraction and Transport (IET Inc.), and Author of The Joy of Patterns "TurboGears really changed the way I schedule project releases: It allows me to deliver them faster and with better quality than when I used to use GUI toolkits." -Jorge Godoy, Owner of G2C Tech Consultoria in Brazil, former Lead Developer for Conectiva documentation team "With TurboGears, I was able to transition my Python projects into Web applications as easily as possible." -Benjamin T. Hamilton, Software Engineer "Norwegian-based company Scanmine AS makes extensive use of Python and Turbo-Gears in all parts of its operation. TurboGears makes it a breeze to build highly sophis-ticated Web 2.0 applications with out-of-the-box features for multiple languages with full Unicode, REST, AJAX, RSS/Atom, and more. This enables Scanmine to put a face on their technology development in a minimal amount of time. "It has been said that there are as many Web frameworks as there are Python Web programmers. This apparent Web framework fragmentation has long been perceived as a weakness, until TurboGears came along and turned weakness into strength." -Rune Hansen, Senior Systems Designer, Scanmine AS "TurboGears is a well thought-out framework; the design choices it has made will help you be more productive. TurboGears will give you confidence with its foundation of stable best-of-breed Python components. If you are coming from other languages, consider working in TurboGears and Python to bring fun back into your Web develop-ment work." -Jeff Marshall, Partner with FrozenBear "When we started developing Oprius Foundations with TurboGears, we weren't sure if it really would help us develop quicker and higher-quality code. After two months, we had a task manager to rival Tada List. After seven months, we had an entire contact management system to compete with the big boys." -Jason Chu, Lead Developer, Oprius Software Inc. "Conventional programming wisdom states that rewriting any working project from scratch is a bad idea. TurboGears was good enough to convince me to do this anyway, and I have been nothing but thrilled with the results. With TurboGears, I was able to implement an AJAX-based Web site with a nice Web API more easily than I ever thought possible. If you are trying to do either of those in Python, you owe it to your-self to look at this project. Using TurboGears was one of the few times in my program-ming career where a task was significantly less complicated than I thought possible." -Adam Jones, Lead Programmer, RecursiveThought Software Master TurboGears: The Easy Python Framework for Rapid Web Development TurboGears harnesses the power of Python to provide a dynamic and easy-to-use Web development framework: one that dramatically increases developer productivity, and makes it far easier to create dynamic, user-friendly, Ajax-enabled Web applications. Now, for the first time, there's a definitive guide to TurboGears-coauthored by its creator, Kevin Dangoor. This book will help experienced Web developers get productive with TurboGears-fast. You'll quickly build your first TurboGears Web application-then extend it one step at a time, mastering the underlying libraries that make these enhancements possible. Next, the authors demonstrate TurboGears at work in a real-world application, by examining the code for "WhatWhat Status," an open source project status tracking application. Finally, you'll gain deep insight into the model, view, and controller technologies TurboGears is built upon: knowledge that will help you build far more robust and capable Python applications.

Douglas McGregor, Revisited - 2834150221

Douglas McGregor, Revisited John Wiley & Sons Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The words of Douglas McGregor, one of the fore-fathers of management theory and one of the top business thinkers of all time, cannot and should not be ignored. McGregor's vision of a more humanistic workplace may not have been widely accepted over three decades ago, but technological advancements that McGregor himself anticipated have paradoxically helped companies become more human. Viewing employees not as cogs in the machine but as living beings with individual goals-what McGregor called "the human side of the enterprise"-has proven to provide a remarkable competitive advantage. Now, with the rise of the networked economy, the growing power of frontline workers, and the shift in power from mass producer to individual consumer, authors Gary Heil, Warren Bennis, and Deborah Stephens assert that McGregor's ideas are more important and relevant than ever before. Douglas McGregor, Revisited emphasizes McGregor's lasting influence and updates his thinking with new concepts, fresh strategies, and modern implementation. This timely work traces McGregor's original thinking, which has emerged in current approaches that stress distributed leadership, open-minded appraisal techniques, and employee/customer commitment. Highlighted throughout with gems of wisdom in McGregor's own words, the book describes the value of his theories for today's managers. The authors carefully outline how to put McGregor's thinking into practice in your own business so you can: Devise a better performance management system Form and supervise effective management teams Build cooperation instead of internal competition Cultivate an intrinsically motivating, values-driven workplace Create a cause worthy of employee commitment Also featured are examples from a host of companies and leaders who have flourished under McGregor's approach. Authoritative and highly instructive, Douglas McGregor, Revisited offers new generations of managers important lessons from history and from the field. Praise for Douglas McGregor, Revisited "This book revisits in a contemporary manner the most important question facing management today: given what we know about human nature, how should work be managed so as to unleash the vast creative potential of human beings? The evidence is overwhelming that many people either come to an organization or can be appropriately led to exhibit the behavior McGregor characterized as 'Theory Y.' This book provides a 'how-to' approach for developing people at work and for establishing high performance organizations."-Joseph A. Maciariello, Horton Professor of Management Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University and Claremont McKenna College. Author of Lasting Value: Lessons from a Century of Agility at Lincoln Electric Douglas McGregor's seminal works, The Human Side of the Enterprise and The Professional Manager, debunked Taylorism and described a revolutionary way to manage people. He was the first to apply the findings in behavioral science to the world of business. Based on what had been learned about human behavior, McGregor explored the implications of managing people in a different manner than tradition dictated. The nature of work today makes McGregor's ideas more relevant than ever before. This important book applies his thinking to today's business world, proving again that the human aspect of work is crucial to organizational effectiveness. It also suggests how you can change your thinking and implement his ideas in your own business and workplace.

'There are guardian angels, and there are monsters with wings' Caitlin Parish should have been the last person to fall for a vampire. A member of the Vampire Control Unit, her relationship with master vampire Kane Malloy had explosive consequences. Caitlin's colleagues count her as the enemy. And now she's going back. Kane has made powerful enemies of his own - and is being targeted by the head of the Global Council, Sirius Throme. With the stakes higher than ever before, Kane knows caring for Caitlin makes him vulnerable. Worse, her decision to return to VCU feels like betrayal. With Throme threatening to tear Blackthorn apart, and the prophesied vampire leader finally revealed, Kane and Caitlin must both fight with everything they have to stop an all out war. But they're fighting on opposite sides... Right when she needs him most, Caitlin makes a shocking discovery about Kane. Has he been playing her all along? And can she trust him with her life when he won't even trust her with the truth? The choice Caitlin makes will change the game in Blackthorn forever. BLOOD DARK is book 5 of 8 in the Blackthorn Paranormal Romance series. What readers are saying about Lindsay J. Pryor... 'I don't think I have read such a finely executed dark PNR world before...This series truly surprised me. I didn't think I would love it that much or be intrigued by it. I couldn't stop thinking about these books once I was done with them... The world-building is spectacular. The characters are enthralling and addicting... Plain fabulousness.' Gaga Over Books 'I am completely enthralled with this paranormal series. You get so wrapped up in the story and characters that you lose track of time... This is one of my favorite series so far this year!' Paranormal Book Club 'This is a paranormal universe like none you have encountered before... There are stories that are so powerful, so intense that I do not believe anyone should warn you about what is to come... I truly do feel that if you love the Paranormal genre and have not yet discovered Lindsay J. Pryor or these novels then you need to read them, experience them firsthand.' Keeper Bookshelf 'I am officially addicted to this series. Why, you ask? Because Lindsay Pryor is my kind of fearless author. She isn't afraid to "go there", to create characters and situations that challenge me as a reader.' The Demon Librarian
