The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
Adam Grant - 2021-02-02
Calificación de Goodreads
Por lo general, asumimos que la inteligencia es la habilidad de pensar y aprender, pero en un mundo que cambia rápidamente como el actual, las habilidades para repensar y desaprender empiezan a valorarse más. Muchas personas privilegian la comodidad y la convicción por encima de la incomodidad y la duda; escuchan solo aquellas opiniones que les hacen sentir bien, en vez de las ideas que los desafían; ven el desacuerdo como una amenaza para su ego, en vez de una oportunidad para aprender; se rodean de personas que apoyan sus puntos de vista, en vez de gravitar en torno a sus contradictores. Cuanto más brillantes se creen, menos ven sus propias limitaciones. En este libro, el psicólogo organizacional Adam Grant, autor del bestseller mundial Originales (Paidós Empresa, 2017), muestra por qué no debemos creer todo aquello que pensamos ni tomarnos a pecho todo lo que sentimos, al tiempo que explica las ventajas de aprender a vivir en un estado de permanente aprendizaje y cuestionamiento. Piénsalo otra vez es una invitación para soltar aquello que no sirve y privilegiar la flexibilidad mental por encima de la rigidez obstinada y paralizante. Si el conocimiento empodera, saber que no lo sabemos todo, nos hace sabios.

Strangers to Ourselves
Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious
Timothy D. Wilson - 2004-05-15 (publicado por primera vez en 2002)
Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the hidden mental world of judgment, feelings, and motives with Strangers to Ourselves. Timothy D. Wilson takes readers on an eye-opening tour of the unconscious mind, redefined by contemporary psychological science.

This book marks a significant shift in how we understand and approach our own selves.

Éramos unos niños book cover
Éramos unos niños
Patti Smith - 2010-01-19
Calificación de Goodreads
Éramos unos niños. La historia de amistad que unió a Mapplethorpe y Patti Smith contada por ella misma. Nacida en Chicaco en 1946, Smith saltó a la fama durante el movimiento punk con su álbum debut Horses. La llamada «madrina del punk» aportó un punto de vista feminista e intelectual al movimiento y se convirtió en una de las artistas más influyentes dentro de la música rock, integrándola con un estilo de poesía beat. Los inicios de su carrera estuvieron marcados por su amistad con el fotógrafo Mapplethorpe con quien, según ella, se casó para disimular su homosexualidad. Estas memorias son un recorrido por las calles del Nueva York de fi nales de los años setenta y principios de los ochenta, un mundo ya perdido donde circulaban Allen Ginsberg o Andy Warhol y sus chicos, y donde se creaban las grandes bandas de música que marcaron el fin del siglo XX.

Calificación de Goodreads
Set in World War II Paris, this thrilling debut novel follows gifted architect Lucien Bernard as he accepts a commission to design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man. Outwitting the Nazis occupying the city is a challenge he can't resist. But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes personal for Lucien. The Paris Architect is a gripping story about what we owe each other and how far we'll go to make things right, written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page.
Malcolm Gladwell
It is a beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war. I have no idea who Belfoure is, but he needs to write another book, now!      fuente

"Drunk Tank Pink" explores how our environment unconsciously shapes our thoughts and actions.

Malcolm Gladwell
The best science book I read was Adam Alter’s “Drunk Tank Pink,” which is a really provocative look at how much our behavior is contextually determined.      fuente

One of the heirs to the Freakonomics legacy. A very clever young writer tells us all sorts of things about what driving says about us. I kept waiting for the moment when my interest in congestion and roads would run its course. It never did.      fuente

Freakonomics, de S. D. Levitt y S. J. Dubner, es un bestseller mundial, una obra curiosa, original e interesante de dos jóvenes economistas norteamericanos; un libro accesible que incluye ejemplos sorprendentes. Los autores han intentado mostrar el lado oculto de las cosas y explicar por qué el mundo funciona como funciona a través de las leyes de la economía --que se desvelan como una ciencia útil para comprender nuestras acciones--; lo que denominan la economía de lo raro.

This book invented an entire genre. Economics was never supposed to be this entertaining.      fuente
