Geoffrey Beattie is an extremely successful academic and celebrity psychologist. He was perhaps a less successful father. His obsession with his career and his driving passion for running when he was at home almost destroyed his relationship with his son, but, ironically, it is running that has brought them back together. Chasing Lost Times is the emotional story of a father and son trying to repair a relationship through a shared activity that depends on sheer physical effort, the kind of physical effort that may once have been the source of commonality between father and son in all previous generations but which seems to be absent in the modern world.

Wenn zwei New York Times-Bestsellerautoren für ihr neuestes Werk unter anderem auf Erkenntnisse von Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson und Jeff Bezos zurückgreifen, dann kommt heraus: ein radikales Manifest, wie exponentiell denkende Unternehmer in den nächsten Jahren die Welt erändern werden. Peter Diamandis und Steven Kotler untersuchen die Technologien, die aktuell ganze Industrien umwälzen und den Weg eines Gründers von 'Ich habe eine Idee' zu 'Ich führe ein Milliardenunternehmen' so kurz wie nie zuvor gemacht haben. Sie geben tiefe Einblicke in die Welt von 3D-Druck, künstlicher Intelligenz, Robotern, intelligenten Netzen und synthetischer Biologie. Sie zeigen, wie man millionenschwere Crowdfunding-Kampagnen lostritt und erfolgreiche Communities gründet. 'Bold' ist Manifest und Ratgeber gleichermaßen. Es ist unverzichtbar für moderne Unternehmer, die disruptive Technologien und die unglaubliche Macht der Crowd nutzen wollen.

Dr Rajendra Prasad wrote the greater part of Autobiography while he was in prison between 1942 and 1945. First published in Hindi, it takes us through his childhood, his life in his village Chapra, his early education with his teacher ‘Maulvi Saheb’, his years as a student in Calcutta, his marriage at the age of twelve and his legal practice. It discusses not only his personal tribulations, but is also an examination of the last years of British colonial rule in India. As a freedom fighter and close associate of Gandhi, he was privy to political developments in the decades before independence. He records Gandhi’s influence on him, the call for non-co-operation in Bihar as part of Gandhiji’s larger all-India movement, the boycott of foreign cloth, the shadow of communalism and the Hindu-Muslim question, Satyagraha and social reform. This book is testimony to Rajendra Prasad’s deep humanity, his unswerving nationalism and belief in democracy. It is also an exploration of the foundations of modern India.
