The Rise, Fall, and Escape of Carlos Ghosn
Nick Kostov, Sean McLain - 2022-08-09
Calificación de Goodreads
Follow the remarkable rise and fall of Carlos Ghosn, a business executive who gained worldwide fame for his incisive business savvy. Chronicled by two Wall Street Journal reporters, this book details Ghosn's innovations, hubris, alleged crimes, and daring international escape. Ghosn rose to prominence at Michelin, Renault, and Nissan, earning him the titles of Le Cost Killer and Mr. 7-Eleven. However, his statements of a merger with Renault created distrust, with resentments brewing amongst Nissan executives. Accused of financial misconduct, Ghosn vehemently denied allegations while planning a shocking escape. Drawing from intensive investigative reporting, Nick Kostov and Sean McLain explore the life and actions of a man who took drastic measures to ensure he would finally get his due.

The Difficulty of Being Good book cover
The Difficulty of Being Good
On the Subtle Art of Dharma
Gurcharan Das - 2009-08-15
Calificación de Goodreads
Discover a new way of thinking about morality and doing the right thing in Gurcharan Das's latest book. Turning to the Mahabharata for answers, he explores the elusive notion of dharma and how it applies to our daily lives. Unlike most debates on morality and ethics, the epic's characters are flawed and their experiences shed light on our own dilemmas. This thought-provoking read holds a mirror up to readers, forcing them to confront their own self-deception and provides practical guidance on how to apply the lessons of dharma to their lives.

@Himansh68121396 @AnilSinghvi_ These days I am re reading: "The difficulty of being good" By Gurcharan Das. Great book      fuente
Pensar rápido, pensar despacio book cover
Pensar rápido, pensar despacio
Daniel Kahneman - 2011-10-25
Calificación de Goodreads
Daniel Kahneman, uno de los pensadores más importantes del mundo, recibió el premio Nobel de Economía por su trabajo pionero en psicología sobre el modelo racional de la toma de decisiones. Sus ideas han tenido un profundo impacto en campos tan diversos como la economía, la medicina o la política, pero hasta ahora no había reunido la obra de su vida en un libro. En Pensar rápido, pensar despacio, un éxito internacional, Kahneman nos ofrece una revolucionaria perspectiva del cerebro y explica los dos sistemas que modelan cómo pensamos. El sistema 1 es rápido, intuitivo y emocional, mientras que el sistema 2 es más lento, deliberativo y lógico. Kahneman expone la extraordinaria capacidad (y también los errores y los sesgos) del pensamiento rápido, y revela la duradera influencia de las impresiones intuitivas sobre nuestro pensamiento y nuestra conducta. El impacto de la aversión a la pérdida y el exceso de confianza en las estrategias empresariales, la dificultad de predecir lo que nos hará felices en el futuro, el reto de enmarcar adecuadamente los riesgos en el trabajo y en el hogar, el profundo efecto de los sesgos cognitivos sobre todo lo que hacemos, desde jugar en la Bolsa hasta planificar las vacaciones; todo esto solo puede ser comprendido si entendemos el funcionamiento conjunto de los dos sistemas a la hora de formular nuestros juicios y decisiones. Al implicar al lector en una animada reflexión sobre cómo pensamos, Kahneman consigue revelar cuándo podemos confiar en nuestras intuiciones y cuándo no, y de qué modo podemos aprovechar los beneficios del pensamiento lento. Además, ofrece enseñanzas prácticas e iluminadoras sobre cómo se adoptan decisiones en la vida profesional o personal, y sobre cómo podemos usar distintas técnicas para protegernos de los fallos mentales que nos crean problemas. Pensar rápido, pensar despacio cambiará para siempre nuestra manera de pensar sobre cómo pensamos.

Este libro audaz, artero, sagaz, inescrupuloso e instructivo, escrito por el estadounidense Robert Greene y diseñado por Joost Elffers, presenta la síntesis de una profunda investigación de las filosofías de grandes pensadores de la talla de Maquiavelo, Sun-tzu y Carl von Clausewitz, en relación con las 48 leyes fundamentales que a lo largo de la historia de la humanidad han regulado y siguen regulando el incremento o la reducción del poder. Leyes que se aplican tanto en el ámbito del trabajo, en las relaciones, en la calle o mirando el noticiario de la noche: a todo, a todos y para lograr cualquier tipo de propósito.
