The Passage: A Novel (Book One of The Passage Trilogy)
The Passage: A Novel (Book One of The Passage Trilogy)
von Justin Cronin
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 6,87

3.0 von 5 Sternen Pageturner, 11. April 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
...this is true at least for the first 200 Pages. After That, the book somehow loses its drive and ambition. As interesting the Plot and the Main characters are, After those first couple of hundert pages, it suddenly and inexplicably becomes almost boring. A Friend of Mine who also read it Said the Same...so it may not just be me. ;-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen When Androids try to whistle.., 11. April 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
..it must be Star Trek.
Even in its first Season, Star Trek NG is already a delight.
As for the DVD themselves: the box is truly elaborate and the discs are functioning perfectly. Since the DVD now come at roughly 35 Euro, they are almost a bargain...at least compared to the Former Price which was well above 100 Euro.


Managers Not MBAs: A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Managing and Management Development
Managers Not MBAs: A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Managing and Management Development
von Henry Mintzberg
  Taschenbuch

2.0 von 5 Sternen How can this be?, 12. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
A great author and more than important subject...seems like a recipe for a great book. Alas, after the first few Pages, one gets the distinct Impression, that this is some sort of revenge book: one can almost feel the author's dispair and frustration. Unfortunately, those two ingredients do not make a good book. Though the questions raised (such as, what is the value of MBA programs and how should they be structured?), the does not succeed in giving convincing answers.


The Swerve: How the World Became Modern
The Swerve: How the World Became Modern
von Stephen J. Greenblatt
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 18,72

5.0 von 5 Sternen Greenblatt does it again, 12. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I knew Greenblatt from his book about Shakespeare (also, by the way, wonderful to read). The Swerve also makes for a great read. Further, it is a real treat for History buffs. If you are interested in why we live and think the way we do today (and if you alread worked your way through various philosophical books), you will like this book. Though knowledge-packed, it still reads like a novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen More power to you, 12. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
A few years back, Surowiecki's book 'Wisdom of Crowds' took a long look a the power behind groups, as opposed to Single experts. Howe takes this ideas a notch further and explores the possibilities of harnessing the power of the many in the Age of the Internet. A delight to read and packed with ideas for every business.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The know-it-all, 12. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Information is such an intrinsic part of our everyday lifes. With Knowledge seemingly at the tip of our fingers, via Internet, we seem to have solved the endless quest for Knowledge. The book will correct this Common mistake and sheds some new light on Information, Knowledge and Wisdom.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Robert Langdon, 12. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Langdon or rather Dan Brown's 4th adventure. Admittedly, 'cast' and plot are very familiar...the Woman, the Chase, the Mysteries. But still, Brown's style of writing once again is fast and dynamic, perhaps already hinting at the next movie?! One certainly has a vivid picture of Tom Hanks in the mind while the story unfolds. A must for Langdon Fan and a good book to become one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Charisma without the myth, 8. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Cabane succeeds in illuminating a fascinating, yet elusive phenomenon: Charisma. According to Cabane it all boils down to three basic concepts - presence, power and warmth. Not exactly new ideas, but Cabane manages to make it interesting and accessable...so, if you want to build up your charismatic muscle, this is the training book you'll need on your way.

It's Carrie ... What more does one need to know?! This DVD also contains extensive Bonus material: many Interviews which from cast and crew. The fact that Sissy Spacek managed to Score an Oscar nomination for her Performance - previously and since unheard of for a Part in a Horror Movie - says it all.
