Weniger ist mehr, sagt man oft. Doch allzu häufig gilt auch: Einfach ist verdammt schwer. Dieses erhellende kleine Buch präsentiert die zehn Gesetze der Einfachheit für Wirtschaft, Technologie, Design und Alltag. "Simplicity" ist der Rettungsanker in einem Meer immer komplexerer Prozesse und zunehmend unüberschaubarer Funktionalitäten. Es ist nicht verwunderlich, dass viele Menschen heutzutage gegen eine Technologie rebellieren, die ihnen zu kompliziert geworden ist, ob es sich um DVD-Recorder mit verwirrend vielfältigen Funktionen handelt oder um Software mit 75-MB-"Read me"-Anleitungen. Doch es gibt Gegenentwürfe: So hat das klare, extrem reduzierte Design des iPod den Welterfolg dieses kleinen Geräts begründet. Manchmal geraten wir allerdings in das "Simplicity"-Paradox: Wir möchten etwas, das einfach zu verstehen und leicht zu benutzen ist, aber dennoch soll es alle denkbaren hochkomplexen Aufgaben erfüllen. In diesem erfrischend kurzen und pointierten Buch stellt uns John Maeda zehn Gesetze vor, mit denen sich Einfachheit und Komplexität in Einklang bringen lassen – Leitlinien, wie wir aus Weniger Mehr machen können. Der Professor am renommierten Media Lab des Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) und weltweit gefragte Grafikdesigner erkundet die Frage, wie wir das Konzept der "Verbesserung" so umdefinieren können, dass es nicht zwangsläufig Mehr bedeutet. Maedas erstes Gesetz heißt "Reduzieren", denn es ist nicht notwendigerweise hilfreich, neue technologische Features hinzuzufügen, bloss weil wir es könnten. Aber diejenigen Eigenschaften, die wir brauchen, sollten in einer vernünftigen Hierarchie organisiert sein (Gesetz 2), so dass die Nutzer nicht von Funktionen abgelenkt werden, die sie gar nicht brauchen. Maedas kompakter Führer zur „Simplicity“ im digitalen Zeitalter verdeutlicht, wie dieses Konzept zum Eckpfeiler von Organisationen und ihren Produkten werden kann – und warum es sich als treibende Kraft für Wirtschaft und Technologie erweisen wird. Wir können vieles vereinfachen, ohne Bedeutung und Nutzen einzubüßen. Und die Balance zwischen diesen Polen erreichen wir mit dem 10. Gesetz: "Einfachheit heißt, das Offensichtliche zu entfernen und das Bedeutsame hinzuzufügen."

Two round trip tickets that you can't buy, were given to me, in the twinkling of an eye! When I returned home all I can say, is God spoke to me in a special way. He would send me words to write, and I would hear them day and night. I had to keep a pen in sight, so I could get the words down right. He speaks to me in Poetry and as you read along you'll see, each poem is addicting as can be. There is a message for all to view, and understanding of it too. As you read you'll understand, why" Simplicity," is in your hand.

Come take a journey of exploration and discovery into the underworld of complexity, searching for simple understanding of our world and everything in it! Author Philip Gervase Jackson’s search for answers started at the age of five and within two years he was debating things others routinely took for granted. As an adult, Mr. Jackson used his new, evolving observations to develop a wonderfully powerful problem-solving method that helped him make discoveries in many different fields including mathematics and software design. As he applied the critical thinking skills he had nurtured, he realized that this problem-solving method is indeed universal - it can be applied to anything. Simplicity Instinct: Why Prime Numbers are Elusive! is a how-to book that shares all the opportunities provided by this method. Life often presents hurdles and barriers, but the search for deeper understanding will win over, every time.

Finally, we are learning that simplicity equals sanity. We're rebelling against technology that's too complicated, DVD players with too many menus, and software accompanied by 75-megabyte "read me" manuals. The iPod's clean gadgetry has made simplicity hip. But sometimes we find ourselves caught up in the simplicity paradox: we want something that's simple and easy to use, but also does all the complex things we might ever want it to do. In The Laws of Simplicity, John Maeda offers ten laws for balancing simplicity and complexity in business, technology, and design -- guidelines for needing less and actually getting more.Maeda -- a professor in MIT's Media Lab and a world-renowned graphic designer -- explores the question of how we can redefine the notion of "improved" so that it doesn't always mean something more, something added on.Maeda's first law of simplicity is "Reduce." It's not necessarily beneficial to add technology features just because we can. And the features that we do have must be organized (Law 2) in a sensible hierarchy so users aren't distracted by features and functions they don't need. But simplicity is not less just for the sake of less. Skip ahead to Law 9: "Failure: Accept the fact that some things can never be made simple." Maeda's concise guide to simplicity in the digital age shows us how this idea can be a cornerstone of organizations and their products -- how it can drive both business and technology. We can learn to simplify without sacrificing comfort and meaning, and we can achieve the balance described in Law 10. This law, which Maeda calls "The One," tells us: "Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful."

Author and poet Chuck Florence has adopted a surprisingly simple approach to verse through Simplicity, that is both subtle and in your face. Within its pages you will find there is something for everyone. Florence's poetry, however simple, remains symbolic of life anywhere, or at anytime - offering refreshing views into spirit and nature. Sometimes erotic, sometimes indulging, his writings touch mostly upon that which is real, while still courting a bit of fantasy and humor. Through poetry, spirit has given itself to those precious moments in the author's life where nothing was spoken, only felt. In capturing these moments, it is his desire to preserve them in their simplest form, with as little distraction as possible. Florence's poetic pieces compel in their stark Simplicity as they manage to convey more with less words. Simple yet stirring, this compilation will lure readers into their own private reflections. Thank you for your purchase.

Since its original publication in France in 1963, Pierre Hadot's lively philosophical portrait of Plotinus remains the preeminent introduction to the man and his thought. Michael Chase's lucid translation—complete with a useful chronology and analytical bibliography—at last makes this book available to the English-speaking world. Hadot carefully examines Plotinus's views on the self, existence, love, virtue, gentleness, and solitude. He shows that Plotinus, like other philosophers of his day, believed that Plato and Aristotle had already articulated the essential truths; for him, the purpose of practicing philosophy was not to profess new truths but to engage in spiritual exercises so as to live philosophically. Seen in this light, Plotinus's counsel against fixation on the body and all earthly matters stemmed not from disgust or fear, but rather from his awareness of the negative effect that bodily preoccupation and material concern could have on spiritual exercises.

In the past fifty years, the standard of living in most industrialized nations has risen dramatically, but the number of people describing themselves as content has remained steady or fallen. The result has been a growing desire to regain some of the virtues of simpler times, whether by forgoing luxuries, switching careers, or returning to nature. These essays reflect on the different facets of 'voluntary simplicity' and consumer culture, providing an historic view of the movement as well as a social-scientific analysis of its causes and effects.
