《第三波》

The Third Wave

The Third Wave

Author: Steve Case

简介:“毫无疑问,科技改变世界,但未来发展方向如何仍众说纷纭,然而没几个人比美国在线共同创始人史蒂夫·凯斯更适合回答这个问题。凯斯在《第三波》一书中告诉你哪些科技会更有影响力、获得成功需要掌握哪些技能。”

Description: "There’s little doubt technology has transformed the world. But where exactly it’s going from here is up for debate. There are few people more equipped to answer that question than one of the world’s foremost entrepreneurs, Steve Case, co-founder of AOL. In 'The Third Wave,' Case explains how and what technology will impact next, and more importantly for readers, the skills one needs to succeed in this third wave."

独创:打破常规者如何推动世界

Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World

Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World

Author: Adam Grant

简介:“个人主义造就成功的想法并不新鲜,实际上,反传统者作为革新者的观点记录颇丰。《独创》作者提出的看法是:创造性蕴含于我们所有人体内,这通常需要巨大的勇气,但挑战现状、改变个人世界甚至整个社会不只是离经叛道者专属,每个人都有可能做到。作者格兰特对读者提出挑战,激励我们勇于用自己独特的方式让世界变得更美好。”

Description: "Individuality is not a new attribute of success; indeed, the iconoclast-as-innovator idea is well documented. What Adam Grant brings to the conversation in 'Originals' is that ingenuity is inside all of us. It often takes great courage, but challenging the status quo and changing your world or the world at large is not only the arena of the eccentric; it is available to everyone, every day. 'Originals' finds Grant again daring his readers to find the strength to improve the world in their own unique way."

汉密尔顿:美国革命

Hamilton: The Revolution

Hamilton: The Revolution

Authors: Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter

Description: "With its genre-bending fusion of musical theater, hip-hop, R&B and pop, the Broadway sensation 'Hamilton: An American Musical' has electrified theater goers since it debuted in the fall of 2015. While the musical tells a uniquely American story like nothing before it, 'Hamilton: The Revolution' is the official account of the inspiration for and making of the show from its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Featuring exclusive details, photos, interviews and more, as well as the full script and lyrics, the book is an indispensable companion to a show that promises to excite and inspire for years to come."

坚韧:激情和韧性的力量

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

Author: Angela Duckworth

简介:“作者认为,熟能生巧一说不仅准确,而且无情。实际上,成功的秘密不在于天资或才能,而是纯粹的坚持不懈,她称之为‘坚韧’。通过对最杰出人士的采访,作者发现,最大的天赋也许就是坚持不懈的能力。”

Description: "In Angela Duckworth’s view, the adage that only practice makes perfect is not only true; it is inexorable. Indeed, the secret to achievement is not talent or genius, says Duckworth, but pure persistence, what she calls 'grit.' Through interviews with some of the world’s highest achievers to historical anecdotes to insights gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance, Duckworth reveals that the ability to persevere is perhaps the greatest talent of all. "

实验室女孩

Lab Girl

Lab Girl

Author: Hope Jahren

Description: "Part memoir and part celebration of the wonder of nature, acclaimed scientist Hope Jahren’s treatise on plant life is an exquisite portrait of a life lived passionately, the meaning of friendship, and how, like the lifecycle of the plants, trees and flowers she so earnestly details in 'Lab Girl,' life unfolds when it is nurtured in all the right ways."

地图:探索世界

Map: Exploring the World

Map: Exploring the World
Amazon

Author: Phaidon Editors

Description: "The history of cartography is a view of the world coming into focus; it is a history of discovery, conquest, ingenuity and innovation. Featuring more than 300 maps from around the world, from the first forays into mapmaking by the Greeks to the incredible everyday conveniences of the Global Positioning System, 'Maps: Exploring the World' is a beautifully illustrated and remarkable account of civilization’s noble attempt to know where it is and where it is going."

从丝绸之路到硅谷:十大非凡人生展示的全球化故事

From Silk to Silicon: The Story of Globalization through Ten Extraordinary Lives

From Silk to Silicon: The Story of Globalization through Ten Extraordinary Lives

Author: Jeffrey Garten

Description: "Globalization may be a uniquely modern term, but it’s been brewing for centuries. Through the stories of ten disparate, sometimes obscure figures in history – from Genghis Khan and Margaret Thatcher to Cyrus Field and Andy Grove – author Jeffrey Garten traces the roots of a world that once seemed as vast as the cosmos but is now as close and connected as any small community. 'From Silk to Silicon' is the story of transcendent change and the lessons civilization’s pioneers provide when they dared look to the horizon and beyond."

克莱门特:丘吉尔夫人传

Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill

Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill

Author: Sonia Purnell

Description: "Most historians regard Winston Churchill as one of the twentieth century’s most indispensable figures, but where would he – and history – be without his loyal, whip-smart wife Clementine. While Churchill has been the subject of innumerable biographies, Clementine and her influence is much lesser known. Not anymore. Author Sonia Purnell reveals a woman, who in her devotion to husband and country, played an enormous role in the ultimate success of the Allied effort before, during and after World War II."

睡眠革命:改变你的人生,每晚一次

The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time

The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time

Author: Arianna Huffington

Description: "It’s safe to say you don’t get enough sleep. What you don’t know is just how destructive sleep deprivation can be to your health, happiness, career and relationships. First addressed in her best-selling book, 'Thrive,' Arianna Huffington devotes nearly 400 pages to the science and mystery of sleep and ultimately the grave consequences of not getting enough of it. You won’t want to put it down – until bedtime, of course."

平庸的终结:如何在趋同的世界获得成功

The End of Average: How We Succeed in a World That Values Sameness

The End of Average: How We Succeed in a World That Values Sameness

Author: Todd Rose

Description: "No one wants to be average, but according to author Todd Rose there’s nothing to worry about – average doesn’t exist. Yet society at almost every level is designed around the idea that there is some vast middle of mediocrity; it shouldn’t be. That critical insight is the premise for Rose’s book, 'The End of Average,' which lays out the mathematical flaws in the idea of average and offers three principles of individuality that can lead to a better, more satisfying life."
