The Wires of War
Technology and the Global Struggle for Power
Jacob Helberg - 2021-10-12
Calificación de Goodreads
This eye-opening book from a former news policy lead at Google reveals the high-stakes global cyberwar brewing between Western democracies and authoritarian regimes like China and Russia, and the potential threat it poses to our democracy. With unnervingly convincing evidence, the author explains how the battle over controlling software and internet hardware could redivide the world into 20th-century-style spheres of influence, affecting every aspect of our lives from the economy to national security. A must-read wake-up call for anyone concerned about the future of our world.

Esplendor y vileza
La historia de Churchill y su entorno familiar durante el período más crítico de la guerra (Ariel)
Erik Larson - 2020-02-25
Calificación de Goodreads
On Winston Churchill's first day as prime minister, Adolf Hitler invaded Holland and Belgium. Poland and Czechoslovakia had already fallen, and the Dunkirk evacuation was just two weeks away. For the next twelve months, Hitler would wage a relentless bombing campaign, killing 45,000 Britons. It was up to Churchill to hold his country together and persuade President Franklin Roosevelt that Britain was a worthy ally--and willing to fight to the end. In The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson shows how Churchill taught the British people "the art of being fearless." It is a story of political brinkmanship, but it's also an intimate domestic drama, set against the backdrop of Churchill's prime-ministerial country home, Chequers; his wartime retreat, Ditchley, where he and his entourage go when the moon is brightest and the bombing threat is highest; and of course 10 Downing Street in London. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports--some released only recently--Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family: his wife, Clementine; their youngest daughter, Mary, who chafes against her parents' wartime protectiveness; their son, Randolph, and his beautiful, unhappy wife, Pamela; Pamela's illicit lover, a dashing American emissary; and the advisers in Churchill's "Secret Circle," to whom he turns in the hardest moments.

Books on Churchill in 1940-1941 take on wholly different meanings during a crisis vs studying during times of peace & prosperity.      fuente

La nueva ciencia de la causa y el efecto
Judea Pearl - 2018-05-15
Calificación de Goodreads
«Este libro narra la historia de una ciencia que, a pesar de haber transformado la manera en la que distinguimos los hechos de la acción, apenas ha recibido la atención del público general. Las consecuencias de esta nueva ciencia ya están impactando en facetas cruciales de nuestra vida y tienen el potencial de afectar a un número aún mayor, desde el desarrollo de nuevos fármacos hasta el control de la política económica, desde la educación y la robótica hasta el control de armas y el calentamiento global. Y todo ello por hacer una pregunta simple: ¿Por qué? Si pudiera resumir el mensaje de este libro en una frase lo más concisa posible, diría: usted es más inteligente que los datos. Los datos no comprenden las causas y los efectos; las personas, sí. Espero que la nueva ciencia de la inferencia causal nos permitirá comprender mejor cómo lo hacemos, porque no existe una forma mejor de entendernos a nosotros mismos que emulándonos». JUDEA PEARL «¿Alguna vez te has interesado por los rompecabezas y el misterio de las causas y los efectos? En este libro encontrarás respuestas que iluminarán tu camino. Además, es entretenidísimo». DANIEL KAHNEMAN (autor de Pensar rápido, pensar despacio).

Now as a leader, what is your real job, what's your role? Strictly speaking there is only one book ever written that actually explains how to do this. It's rather old, written in 1982 by Andy Grove, it's quite famous, and successful. And his definition of what your job is, is to maximize the output of the organization.      fuente

Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy
Thomas Sowell - 1996-06-28 (publicado por primera vez en 1995)
Calificación de Goodreads
This insightful book by Thomas Sowell offers a penetrating analysis of the problems caused by liberalism's misguided principles. The Vision of the Anointed is a thought-provoking critique that highlights the serious consequences of policymakers and intellectuals who promote flawed theories, resulting in social dysfunction in areas such as education, crime, and family breakdown. With evidence-based arguments, Sowell challenges the "politically correct" rhetoric of the anointed elites and exposes the fallacies of their self-righteous assumptions. A must-read for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the failures of modern social policy.
