🦅 La caduta dei giganti

by Follett Ken

I destini di cinque famiglie si intrecciano inesorabilmente attraverso due continenti sullo sfondo dei drammatici eventi scatenati dallo scoppio della Prima guerra mondiale e dalla Rivoluzione russa.

⏳ I giorni dell'eternità

by Follett Ken

I giorni dell'eternità è l'appassionante conclusione dell'epica trilogia 'The Century', dedicata al Novecento, nella quale Ken Follett segue il destino di cinque famiglie legate tra loro: una americana, una tedesca, una russa, una inglese e una gallese. Dai palazzi del potere alle case della gente comune, le storie dei protagonisti si snodano e si intrecciano nel periodo che va dai primi anni Sessanta fino alla caduta del Muro di Berlino, passando attraverso eventi sociali, politici ed economici tra i più drammatici e significativi del cosiddetto 'Secolo breve'...

⚙️ The Machine Stops

by Forster E. M.

The story, set in a world where humanity lives underground and relies on a giant machine to provide their needs, predicted technologies such as instant messaging and the Internet. The story describes a world in which most of the human population has lost the ability to live on the surface of the Earth. Each individual now lives in isolation below ground in a standard room, with all bodily and spiritual needs met by the omnipotent, global Machine. Travel is permitted, but is unpopular and rarely necessary. Communication is made via a kind of instant messaging/video conferencing machine with which people conduct their only activity: the sharing of ideas and what passes for knowledge.

🧎 Man's Search for Meaning

by Frankl Viktor E.

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ('meaning')-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

💭 L'interpretazione dei sogni

by Freud Sigmund

Con L’interpretazione dei sogni Sigmund Freud ha avviato una delle grandi rivoluzioni del Novecento divulgando la sua teoria dei processi inconsci. In nessuna altra opera è riuscito a coniugare in modo così brillante l’esigenza della completezza e del rigore con quella della chiarezza e della semplicità dell’esposizione. Tanto da rendere questo libro una sorta di passepartout in grado di aprire tutti gli accessi principali ai concetti della psicoanalisi.

🤑 It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work

by Fried Jason & David H. H.

In this timely manifesto, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework broadly reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and 'whatever it takes' are required to run a successful business today.

😉 Blink

by Gladwell Malcolm

Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant--in the blink of an eye--that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work--in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?

✌️ Outliers

by Gladwell Malcolm

In this stunning book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of 'outliers'--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

🧨 The Tipping Point

by Gladwell Malcolm

The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate.

😈 Faust

by Goethe J.W.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe ha lavorato al Faust per sessant'anni, dal 1772 al 1831, costruendo un'opera monumentale che consacra il suo autore come il massimo scrittore di lingua tedesca e imprimendo il suo personaggio nell'immaginario collettivo come simbolo dello spirito moderno; proteso verso ideali sempre più elevati facendo del dramma un compendio non solo del sapere filosofico ma anche degli ideali politici, morali ed estetici dell’autore.
