Breaking Trail book cover
Breaking Trail
A Climbing Life
Arlene Blum - 2007-03-05 (publicado por primera vez en 2005)
Calificación de Goodreads
"Breaking Trail" tells the story of Arlene Blum, a legendary trailblazer who broke gender stereotypes in climbing and science. Blum led the first all-female teams to successful ascents of Mount McKinley and Annapurna, as well as being the first American woman to attempt Mount Everest. Her scientific work also led to important legislation banning carcinogens in children’s sleepwear. With candor and humor, Blum recounts her journey from an overprotected childhood in Chicago to the tops of some of the highest peaks on earth, and to a life lived on her own terms. This book is a moving testament to the power of taking risks and pursuing dreams.

Ruined by Design
How Designers Destroyed the World, and What We Can Do to Fix It
Mike Monteiro - 2019-04-12
Calificación de Goodreads
The book explores how the world is functioning exactly as designed, with everything from guns to social media causing harm. The author makes the case that design is a political act and designers are responsible for their creations. While the book may stir up anger, it provides the tools needed to make better decisions, build diverse teams, and confidently say no to harmful projects. It's a must-read for designers who want to understand their role in creating a better world.
Daniel Burka
I love that @monteiro writes in such clear, direct language. Reading his new book "Ruined by Design" might be difficult or hurt your ego, designers. And, you might disagree with Mike. But you should read it for a clear-headed viewpoint on our mistakes and challenges. 👏      fuente
Factfulness book cover
Diez razones por las que estamos equivocados sobre el mundo. Y por qué las cosas están mejor de lo que piensas
Hans Rosling - 2018-04-03
Calificación de Goodreads
Cuando se hacen preguntas sencillas sobre las tendencias mundiales: ¿qué porcentaje de la población mundial vive en la pobreza? ¿Por qué la población mundial está aumentando? ¿cuántas chicas terminan la escuela? Sistemáticamente obtenemos las respuestas incorrectas. Tan incorrectas que incluso un chimpancé eligiendo las respuestas al azar superará siempre a los maestros, periodistas, premios Nobel y banqueros de inversión. En Factfulness, el profesor de Salud Internacional y el fenómeno TED global Hans Rosling, junto con sus dos colaboradores, Anna y Ola, ofrece una nueva y radical explicación de por qué sucede esto. Nos revelan los diez instintos que distorsionan nuestra perspectiva: desde nuestra tendencia a dividir el mundo en dos campos (generalmente en nosotros y de ellos) a la forma en que consumimos los medios (donde el miedo gobierna) y cómo percibimos el progreso (creyendo que todo está empeorando). Nuestro problema es que no sabemos lo que no sabemos y que, incluso nuestras suposiciones, se basan en prejuicios inconscientes y predecibles. Resulta que el mundo, a pesar de sus imperfecciones, está en un estado mucho mejor de lo que podríamos pensar. Eso no significa que no haya preocupaciones reales. Pero cuando nos preocupamos por todo constantemente, en lugar de adaptar una cosmovisión basada en hechos, podemos perder nuestra capacidad de enfocarnos en las cosas que más nos amenazan. Inspiradora y reveladora, llena de anécdotas e historias conmovedoras, Factfulness es un libro urgente y esencial que cambiará la forma de ver el mundo y le permitirá responder a las crisis y oportunidades del futuro.
Daniel Burka
I just finished reading Factfulness — if you read just one non-fiction book this year, this should be it. A clear-headed, useful book on seeing the whole world more rationally. Plus it's hard to put down. And, the data viz is A++      fuente
