Disunited Nations book cover
Disunited Nations
The Scramble for Power in an Ungoverned World
Peter Zeihan - 2019-11-19 (publicado por primera vez en 2020)
Calificación de Goodreads
Disunited Nations by Peter Zeihan is a thought-provoking guidebook that delves into the future of world powers, trade agreements, and international institutions. Zeihan presents counterintuitive arguments about a world where cooperation is disintegrating, and smaller, competing powers will prevail. He predicts that China will collapse, France will replace Germany as Europe's most powerful country, and Saudi Arabia, not Iran, will pose the biggest threat to the Middle East. This essential reading provides insights that no leader can afford to ignore, as we enter a period of chaos and uncertainty.

@zachcoelius I highly recommend Americana. It’s enlightening. And tells US history through capitalism. And then this book - Splendid Exchange - does a great job of the same though globally. Changed so much about my understanding of the world      fuente

Cómo el comercio modeló el mundo desde Sumeria hasta hoy
William J. Bernstein - 2008-04-11
Calificación de Goodreads
Una historia exhaustiva del comercio en el mundo –desde Mesopotamia en 3000 a.C. hasta la tormentosa globalización de hoy en día- que explora con brillantez el pasado abigarrado y beligerante del comercio, y aporta nuevas perspectivas de su futuro. Adam Smith escribió que el hombre posee “una propensión” innata “a comerciar, hacer trueques e intercambiar unas cosas con otras”. Pero ¿cómo es posible que el comercio evolucionara hasta el punto que nosotros mordemos una manzana del otro lado del mundo como si fuese la cosa más natural? El autor comienza la narración en la antigua Mesopotamia y acaba en la era moderna de los televisores de Taiwan y las camisetas de China.

Born Standing Up book cover
Born Standing Up
A Comic's Life
Steve Martin - 2007-11-20
Calificación de Goodreads
This memoir tells the story of Steve Martin's rise to fame as a stand-up comedian in the mid-seventies, ultimately becoming the biggest concert draw in history by 1978. It's a candid and spectacularly amusing account of the sacrifices, discipline, and originality that made Martin an icon, informed by his experiences at Disneyland, the Bird Cage Theatre and Knott's Berry Farm. He also provides a portrait of the era of free love and protests against the Vietnam War, and the transformative new voice of Saturday Night Live in the seventies. Completing the memoir are photographs never seen before. Born Standing Up is a superb testament to one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time.

Lecciones Personales Sobre El Cambio Personal
Stephen R. Covey - 2004-11-09 (publicado por primera vez en 1988)
Calificación de Goodreads
When Stephen Covey first released The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, the book became an instant rage because people suddenly got up and took notice that their lives were headed off in the wrong direction; and more than that, they realized that there were so many simple things they could do in order to navigate their life correctly. This book was wonderful education for people, education in how to live life effectively and get closer to the ideal of being a ‘success’ in life. But not everyone understands Stephen Covey’s model fully well, or maybe there are some people who haven’t read it yet. This is definitely true because we still see so much failure all around us. Now, I am not saying that by using Covey’s model, or anyone else’s model for that matter, you can become a sure-shot success, but at least we should have seen many more successes around us already judging by the number of copies the book has sold! So, where is the shortcoming? There are two main problems here, and we are talking only about the people who have read the book already. The first problem is that most people are too lazy to implement the ideals of Stephen Covey in their lives. They consider his masterpiece of a book as a mere coffee-table book or a book that you use for light reading when you are traveling and then forget all about it. They do not realize that this book contains life-changing information. Or, they take the information and do not make the effort to actually utilize it so that it becomes knowledge for them. The second problem is that a lot of people have a myopic view of Covey’s ideals. These are people who are impressed by the book already. If you ask them what the seven habits are, they can rattle them off end to end, but then they miss the larger picture. They do not understand that Covey was trying to tell more than he wrote in words. There are hidden implications in this book, yes, and a lot of people have just failed to see through them. That is what we are trying to do. We are trying to show you how Covey’s book, or rather, his model, was a complete model in itself. There was nothing amiss about it. If you implement it, there should be no aspect of your life that should go untouched. The only thing is that you have to understand these ideals and try to implement them in your life. But, before we barge into that area, it is extremely important to understand what these ideals are. What was the model that was propounded by Stephen Covey in his mega-famous book? We shall begin by trying to understand his model first, and then interpret it in such a way that it pertains to every aspect of our life

Estos principios ayudarán a los managers a determinar en qué ocasiones resulta más adecuado no escuchar a sus clientes, cuándo invertir en el desarrollo de productos de escaso rendimiento que proporcionen inicialmente márgenes reducidos.

A Memoir by the Creator of Nike
Phil Knight - 2016-04-26
Calificación de Goodreads
La historia jamás contada detrás de Nike, la marca deportiva más icónica del mundo, narrada por su creador. Phil Knight, director general de Nike, nos cuenta por primera vez la auténtica historia detrás de la empresa que fundó en 1962, que hoy en día factura más de 30.000 millones de dólares al año, y cuyo logo ha llegado a ser un símbolo global, el icono más ubicuo y reconocido en todo el mundo. Todo comenzó con 50 dólares y una idea sencilla: importar calzado deportivo económico y de gran calidad desde Japón. Vendiendo esas zapatillas de deporte en el maletero de su coche consiguió facturar 8.000 dólares durante el primer año. Progresivamente, este pequeño negocio se convirtió en una start-up rompedora que revolucionó el mercado, creó una marca universal e innovadora y evolucionó hasta convertirse en el gigante actual. En estas memorias sinceras y viscerales, Phil Knight relata los numerosos riesgos asumidos, los reveses sufridos y los incipientes éxitos, pero sobre todo la relación con sus primeros colaboradores y empleados, un grupo de inconformistas y luchadores que acabaron sintiéndose como hermanos. Juntos, animados por la fuerza de un objetivo común y una fe profunda en el espíritu del deporte, construyeron una marca que transformó todos los cánones establecidos.

I continue to be so inspired by the collectible assets @OnRallyRd acquires. I loved the book “Shoe Dog” about foundation of Nike. And to be able to own a small share in 1-of-12 original Moon Shoes is so amazing. Not too late to buy #MoonShoe      fuente

Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion
Jonathan Haidt - 2021-10-13 (publicado por primera vez en 2012)
Calificación de Goodreads
Por qué los juicios morales no surgen de la razón sino de los instintos. En unos tiempos como los actuales, de enorme polarización política, resulta inevitable hacernos una pregunta: ¿por qué no podemos llevarnos bien? Seamos de derechas o de izquierdas, demasiadas veces tenemos la sensación de que nuestro adversario, además de oponerse a nosotros, no entiende en absoluto nuestras posturas y ni siquiera lo intenta. Eso hace que las divisiones sociales se estén consolidando, el debate público se convierta en un griterío y que en su mayoría los ciudadanos crean que sólo ellos están en lo cierto.Muchas personas, guiadas por razones morales que en realidad no son fruto de la razón, sino de un tribalismo parcialmente innato, son incapaces de entender que tanto los progresistas como los conservadores o los liberales, los creyentes y los ateos, tienen parte de razón; el conflicto moral les impide verlo.
