Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe without Design
Richard Dawkins - 2006-04-06 (publicado por primera vez en 1986)
Calificación de Goodreads
Acclaimed as the most influential work on evolution written in the last hundred years, The Blind Watchmaker offers an inspiring and accessible introduction to one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time. A brilliant and controversial book which demonstrates that evolution by natural selection - the unconscious, automatic, blind yet essentially non-random process discovered by Darwin - is the only answer to the biggest question of all: why do we exist?
Charlie Munger
If you take Dawkins "the Selfish Gene" and the "Blind Watchmaker" I mean these are marvelous books and their words in those books that are entering the English language that are gonna be in the next Oxford Dictionary. I mean these are powerful books.      fuente

El gen egoísta
40th Anniversary Edition (Oxford Landmark Science)
Richard Dawkins - 2006-01-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1976)
Calificación de Goodreads
"The Selfish Gene" caused a wave of excitement among biologists and the general public when it was first published in 1976. Its vivid rendering of a gene's eye view of life, in lucid prose, gathered together the strands of thought about the nature of natural selection into a conceptual framework with far-reaching implications for our understanding of evolution. Time has confirmed its significance. Intellectually rigorous, yet written in non-technical language, "The Selfish Gene" is widely regarded as a masterpiece of science writing, and its insights remain as relevant today as on the day it was published.
Charlie Munger
I had to read the Selfish Gene twice before I fully understood it and there were things I believed all my life that weren't so and I think it's just wonderful when you have those experiences.      fuente

Pero ¿qué importa realmente cuando se dirige una organización? ¿Cuál es el sello distintivo del excepcional desempeño de un CEO?

The Story of Success
Malcolm Gladwell - 2008-11-18
Calificación de Goodreads
Learn what sets high achievers apart -- from Bill Gates to the Beatles -- in this #1 bestseller from "a singular talent" ( New York Times Book Review ). In this stunning book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band. Brilliant and entertaining, Outliers is a landmark work that will simultaneously delight and illuminate.

The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns (Little Books. Big Profits)
John C. Bogle - 2007-03-05
Calificación de Goodreads
Invertir se basa, sobre todo, en el sentido común. Ser propietario de una cartera diversificada de acciones y mantenerla a largo plazo es un juego de un ganador. El sentido común nos dice (y la historia lo confirma) que la estrategia de inversión más simple y más eficiente es comprar barato y mantener acciones de empresas que cotizan en bolsa nacional. La verdadera fórmula del éxito en inversión es abarcar la totalidad del mercado y, a la vez, minimizar significativamente los costes de la intermediación financiera. Y eso es lo que ofrecen los índices, y lo que este libro explica.
