Ruth Ozeki erkundet, was es heißt, in diesem Augenblick, genau jetzt, ein Mensch zu sein – »bezaubernd, klug und herzzerreißend« (Junot Díaz). »Hallo! Ich heiße Nao, und ich bin ein Zeitwesen. Weißt du, was ein Zeitwesen ist? Wenn du einen Moment hast, erzähl ich es dir.« So beginnt das Tagebuch des japanischen Teenagers Nao, das eines Tages am Strand einer kanadischen Pazifikinsel angespült wird. Nao schreibt von Einsamkeit und Mobbing, vom depressiven Vater, von ihrer schillernden Urgroßmutter Jiko und den Geheimnissen des Zen. Die Autorin Ruth, die das Tagebuch gefunden hat, ist bald wie gebannt von Naos Notizen und beginnt zugleich um ihr Leben zu fürchten – hat Nao letztlich Selbstmord begangen? Ist sie im Tsunami gestorben? Die Suche nach Antworten gerät für Ruth zu einer magischen Reise durch die Gegenwart, die am Ende auch den Blick auf ihr eigenes Leben verwandelt.

Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.

Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review

Er ist Anwalt, 33 und hat nur eines im Kopf: Sex. Ob Alexander Portnoy in der Öffentlichkeit onaniert, es mit einem Stück Leber treibt oder seine Freundin zu einem Dreier nötigt - stets ist er hin- und hergerissen zwischen Begierden, die mit seinem Gewissen unvereinbar sind, und einem Gewissen, das mit seinen Begierden unvereinbar ist. Beim Psychiater lässt er sein verwirrtes Leben Revue passieren. Mit "Portnoys Beschwerden" hat Philip Roth eine brillante Satire geschrieben und zugleich den Prototyp des Sexualneurotikers erfunden. Vierzig Jahre nach der Erstveröffentlichung hat der Weltbestseller in einer Neuübersetzung nichts von seiner überschäumenden Komik eingebüßt.

Lon L Fuller's account of what he termed 'the internal morality of law' is widely accepted as the classic twentieth century statement of the principles of the rule of law. Much less accepted is his claim that a necessary connection between law and morality manifests in these principles, with the result that his jurisprudence largely continues to occupy a marginal place in the field of legal philosophy. In 'Forms Liberate: Reclaiming the Jurisprudence of Lon L Fuller', Kristen Rundle offers a close textual analysis of Fuller's published writings and working papers to explain how his claims about the internal morality of law belong to a wider exploration of the ways in which the distinctive form of law introduces meaningful limits to lawgiving power through its connection to human agency. By reading Fuller on his own terms, 'Forms Liberate' demonstrates why his challenge to a purely instrumental conception of law remains salient for twenty-first century legal scholarship.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.
