1 A Taste of Irrationality - Dr. Dan Ariely
Auteur : Dr. Dan Ariely
Genre : Marketing & Sales
Sample chapters from Predictably Irrational and Upside of Irrationality.

Predictably Irrational

Why do our headaches persist after we take a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a fifty-cent aspirin?

Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup?

When it comes to making decisions in our lives, we think we're making smart, rational choices. But are we?

In this newly revised and expanded edition of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. From drinking coffee to losing weight, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, we consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictable—mak

4 Hitler's Youth: An Analysis of Mein Kampf - Isuru Abeysinghe
Auteur : Isuru Abeysinghe
Genre : History
Hitler's autobiographical book Mein Kampf, the official doctrine of the NAZI regime during WWII, is not a book that many would consider to read. Modern society is generally very well acquainted with Hitler and the ultimate outcome of his philosophical stances and will automatically denounce such notions based on a purely humanitarian and moral standpoint. The book remains illegal in many parts of the world (particularly Europe) and it rightfully considered one of the most powerful, destructive and divisive doctrines in modern history. While the book is often confronting in it's content it is still to my opinion an essential read because contained therein are the techniques of a master manipulator. It shows clearly that the doctrine of genocide-inducing hatred is not always - or even generally - a chaotic ramble of spiteful extremist verses but rather a considered and deliberate propagand

5 Good to Great - Jim Collins
Auteur : Jim Collins
Genre : Management & Leadership
The Challenge
Built to Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the verybeginning.

But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

The Study
For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great?

The Standards
Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for

12 Serial Killers: The Worlds Most Notorious And Ferocious Serial Killers: An In Depth Analysis Of Serial Killers Minds - Brody Clayton
Auteur : Brody Clayton

Serial killers are people who defy the very concept of humanity. These people are able to remorselessly slay somebody without even the slightest regard for life.

While you may begin to feel bad for these killers when you hear their back-stories, the stories of their gruesome crimes makes it impossible to spare even an ounce of sympathy and pity for them. So read on to know what drove these seemingly normal human beings to become serial killers.

15 Elevation - Stephen King
Auteur : Stephen King
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
From legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting story about “an ordinary man in an extraordinary condition rising above hatred” (The Washington Post) and bringing the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine together—a “joyful, uplifting” (Entertainment Weekly) tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences, “the sign of a master elevating his own legendary game yet again” (USA TODAY).

Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic sto

19 Step by step practical guide with Statistics (from ANOVA to survival analysis) in Biological Sciences: Or: Help, how can I analyze my “damned” scientific data correctly and in an easy way with free R! - Boran Altincicek
Auteur : Boran Altincicek
Genre : Life Sciences
Many scientists and students are asking for advice in statistical analyses during preparation of their publications or theses. This book aims to address these needs by representing a “recipe book” for statistical analysis in biological sciences.

The content of this book will enable everyone to perform high-quality statistical analyses and to produce publication-quality graphics with no additional costs using R. R is at least as good (and often better) as many expensive statistical software solutions for statistical computing. It runs on all important platforms and provides a wide array of specialized modules and utilities for diverse needs.

24 Economics in One Lesson - Henry Hazlitt
Auteur : Henry Hazlitt
Genre : Reference
With over a million copies sold, Economics in One Lesson is an essential guide to the basics of economic theory. A fundamental influence on modern libertarianism, Hazlitt defends capitalism and the free market from economic myths that persist to this day.

Considered among the leading economic thinkers of the “Austrian School,” which includes Carl Menger, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich (F.A.) Hayek, and others, Henry Hazlitt (1894-1993), was a libertarian philosopher, an economist, and a journalist. He was the founding vice-president of the Foundation for Economic Education and an early editor of The Freeman magazine, an influential libertarian publication.  Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson, his seminal work, in 1946. Concise and instructive, it is also deceptively prescient and far-reaching in its efforts to dissemble economi

26 Decisive - Chip Heath & Dan Heath
Auteur : Chip Heath & Dan Heath
Genre : Management & Leadership
Chip and Dan Heath, the bestselling authors of Switch and Made to Stick, tackle one of the most critical topics in our work and personal lives: how to make better decisions.

   Research in psychology has revealed that our decisions are disrupted by an array of biases and irrationalities: We’re overconfident. We seek out information that supports us and downplay information that doesn’t. We get distracted by short-term emotions. When it comes to making choices, it seems, our brains are flawed instruments. Unfortunately, merely being aware of these shortcomings doesn’t fix the problem, any more than knowing that we are nearsighted helps us to see. The real question is: How can we do better?

   In Decisive, the Heaths, based on an exhaustive study of the decision-making literature, introduce a four-step p

29 Ignorance and Evil: An Analysis of Racism in South Africa - Newton Fortuin
Auteur : Newton Fortuin
Genre : Psychology
I initially wrote Ignorance and Evil in 2005, and then it merely was a simple reflection on the interconnection between ignorance and evil, and not necessarily about racism. That it significantly focused on apartheid and its effects was coincidental as I happened to have lived in a society where grave evil was committed, and it, largely under the banner of a conservative religion.

Because of the aforementioned context, it consequently was very critical of Afrikaaners (a grouping of mainly Dutch, French and German settlers), as a grouping, having been the main perpetrators of apartheid. What was very revealing, however, was that the article received little or no resistance from Afrikaaners themselves, who were indeed largely supportive, and at times, even remorseful about the past.

But what was particularly revealing to me, is that English speakers tended to be far m

30 Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from the Data - Charles Wheelan
Auteur : Charles Wheelan
Genre : Mathematics
A New York Times bestseller

"Brilliant, funny…the best math teacher you never had." —San Francisco Chronicle

Once considered tedious, the field of statistics is rapidly evolving into a discipline Hal Varian, chief economist at Google, has actually called "sexy." From batting averages and political polls to game shows and medical research, the real-world application of statistics continues to grow by leaps and bounds. How can we catch schools that cheat on standardized tests? How does Netflix know which movies you’ll like? What is causing the rising incidence of autism? As best-selling author Charles Wheelan shows us in Naked Statistics, the right data and a few well-chosen statistical tools can help us answer these questions and more.

For those who slept through Stats 101, this book is a lifesaver. Wheelan strips away the arcane and technical detai

Genre : Investing
Looking for a simple guide to technical analysis of the financial markets? Technical Analysis – A Newbies’ Guide is what you need if you want to learn the principles of technical analysis plain and simple.

Over forty years ago, Games People Play revolutionized our understanding of what really goes on during our most basic social interactions. More than five million copies later, Dr. Eric Berne's classic is as astonishing and revealing as it was on the day it was first published.

Explosive when it first appeared, Games People Play is now widely recognized as the most original and influential popular psychology book of our time. It's as powerful

37 Good Strategy Bad Strategy - Richard Rumelt
Auteur : Richard Rumelt
Genre : Management & Leadership
Good Strategy/Bad Strategy clarifies the muddled thinking underlying too many strategies and provides a clear way to create and implement a powerful action-oriented strategy for the real world.
Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader. A good strategy is a specific and coherent response to—and approach for—overcoming the obstacles to progress. A good strategy works by harnessing and applying power where it will have the greatest effect. Yet, Rumelt shows that there has been a growing and unfortunate tendency to equate Mom-and-apple-pie values, fluffy packages of buzzwords, motivational slogans, and financial goals with “strategy.”

In Good Strategy/Bad Strategy, he debunks these elements of “bad strategy” and awakens an understanding of the power of a “good strategy.” He introduces n

Genre : Business & Personal Finance
Completely Updated and Revised

This revised edition of Peter Senge’s bestselling classic, The Fifth Discipline, is based on fifteen years of experience in putting the book’s ideas into practice.

Jeannette Walls chronicles all the heartbreak, deprivation, humor, and love of her childhood in The Glass Castle, a memoir of growing up dirt-poor on a cross-country odyssey with her charismatic, but alcoholic, father and her codependent mother.

She arranged to have lunch with her mom, who advised her to stop feeling guilty, accept her parents as they were, and stop hiding the truth about them.
Taking this advice, Jeannette started writing her story. Her first memory went back to a trailer

44 Technical Analysis: Modern Perspectives - Gordon Scott, Michael Carr & Mark Cremonie
Auteur : Gordon Scott, Michael Carr & Mark Cremonie
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
Supply and demand are cornerstones of economics and the interaction of these forces is believed to explain price changes in all freely traded markets. Scarcity tends to result in increased prices and abundance generally leads to lower prices. In financial markets, technical analysis provides a framework for informing investment management decisions by applying a supply and demand methodology to market prices. Technical analysts employ a disciplined, systematic approach that seeks to minimize the impact of behavioral biases and emotions that could adversely affect investment performance. Analysts employ ratio analysis, comparative analysis and other techniques that are similar to the tools developed to analyze financial statements.

"J.K Sheindlin has done something incredible!" - WND Online News

In 'The People vs Muhammad', #1 international bestselling author JK Sheindlin psychologically analyses the founding father of Islam, while putting him on trial for crimes against humanity.

Is Islam a "religion of peace"? Was Muhammad the true and final prophet of God? Is the Quran the fulfilment of the Bible, and legitimately continuing the traditions of the Judeo-Christian scriptures? Perhaps one of the most audacious, shocking, unthinkable and highly controversial ideas to ever be conceived, The People vs Muhammad places the founding father of Islam on trial for crimes against humanity, and to challenge his self-proclaimed authority

47 Evidence of the Afterlife - Jeffrey Long & Paul Perry
Auteur : Jeffrey Long & Paul Perry
Genre : Spirituality
“There is currently more scientific evidence to the reality of near death experience (NDE) than there is for how to effectively treat certain forms of cancer,” states radiation oncologist Dr. Jeffrey Long is his groundbreaking new book Evidence of the Afterlife. In 1998 Dr. Long and his wife, Jody, began the Near Death Experience Research Foundation with the goal of creating a forum for near death “experiencers” to share their stories. Grounded in first-hand evidence culled from over 1,600 verified NDE accounts, Evidence of the Afterlife presents the strongest argument yet for the underlying truth of those who have died and returned to share their tales.

In the mysterious world of Harmony, there are places filled with unexplored marvels. But Rainshadow Island isn’t about to give up its secrets…

In the alien catacombs of Rainshadow, there are creatures whose compelling songs lure the unwary to their death. That’s why Rafe Coppersmith, hired to clear out the catacombs for exploration, needs a music talent. He’s knows the perfect one, but she probably doesn’t want anything do with him...

49 Twilight of the Elites - Chris Hayes
Auteur : Chris Hayes
Genre : Political Science
A powerful and original argument that traces the roots of our present crisis of authority to an unlikely source: the meritocracy.

Over the past decade, Americans watched in bafflement and rage as one institution after another –  from Wall Street to Congress, the Catholic Church to corporate America, even Major League Baseball – imploded under the weight of corruption and incompetence. In the wake of the Fail Decade, Americans have historically low levels of trust in their institutions; the social contract between ordinary citizens and elites lies in tatters.

How did we get here? With Twilight of the Elites, Christopher Hayes offers a radically novel answer. Since the 1960s, as the meritocracy elevated a more diverse group of men and women into power, they learned to embrace the accelerating inequality that had placed them near the very top. Th
