Ошибки, которые были допущены (но не мной)
Почему мы оправдываем глупые убеждения, плохие решения и пагубные действия
Carol Tavris - 2007-01-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
После совершения ошибки мы обычно сочиняем "легенду", освобождающую нас от ответственности, восстанавливая веру в то, что мы являемся справедливыми и компетентными, чтобы оправдать себя и защитить свою самооценку от удара. Социальные психологи Кэрол Теврис и Эллиот Аронсон на основе длительных исследований увлекательно объясняют, в чем причина самооправданий: как они работают, ущерб, который они могут нанести как нам, так и нашему окружению, и, самое главное, как мы можем распознать и остановить их, пока они не привели нас к безнравственным поступкам. Рекомендуется всем, кто хочет понять тайны человеческой натуры и разобраться в причинах собственных поступков и поступков других людей. Книга будет профессионально полезна широкому кругу специалистов различных специализаций в области: психологии, медицины, социологии, журналистики, конфликтологии, политологии, медиации, права, судопроизводства, криминалистики и др.

The Power of Mimetic Desire in Everyday Life
Luke Burgis - 2021-06-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the theory of "mimetic desire" and its influence on our daily lives, from work to romance to politics, in this groundbreaking book. Based on the ideas of French scholar René Girard, author Luke Burgis reveals how our desires are shaped by those around us and how we can break free from chasing unfulfilling desires. Drawing on his experience as an entrepreneur and student of philosophy and theology, Burgis provides a toolkit for intentional wanting and finding meaning in our lives.

No, I didn't read Dianetics ;-) The book is called ‘Wanting’, by an guy named Luke Burgis. It’s about mimetic desire. An academic theory popularized by Peter Thiel. At face value, it barely sounds worth mentioning: When the people around you want something, we want it too…      источник

I'm shocked by how few tech leaders—especially at small and medium sized companies—understand the risk of cyber attack. It's like being a civil engineer in Japan who hasn't read about earthquakes. This book by @nicoleperlroth shook me:      источник

Психология денег
Вечные уроки богатства, жадности и счастья
Morgan Housel - 2020-09-08
Рейтинг Goodreads
Говоря об умелом обращении человека с деньгами, мы имеем в виду не столько его знания, сколько действия. А обучить людей (даже по-настоящему умных) правильному поведению бывает нелегко. Деньги, в частности инвестиции, личные финансы и бизнес-решения, обычно считаются вотчиной математики, где данные и формулы четко подсказывают нам алгоритм действий. Но в реальном мире люди принимают финансовые решения не на основании графиков и таблиц, а в ходе бесед за ланчем или в конференц-зале, где странным образом перемешиваются личная история, ваше собственное уникальное мировоззрение, эго, маркетинг и самые невероятные стимулы. В своей книге «Психология денег» Морган Хаузел делится с вами 19 маленькими историями, в которых отражены необычные взгляды людей на деньги и содержатся уроки, способствующие лучшему пониманию этой одной из самых важных жизненных тем.

There is one book I recommend more than any other, and I'm ashamed to share the name... I swear to god, this is an incredible, well-written, thoughtful book. It's called 'How To Get Rich' 🤦‍♂️ It was written by a magazine publishing magnate named Felix Dennis in 2008...      источник

Lori Gottlieb - 2019-04-02
Рейтинг Goodreads
Лори Готтлиб, успешный психотерапевт, консультирует множество пациентов и помогает им справляться с разнообразными жизненными перипетиями. Но по средам она сама пациентка, рыдающая в кабинете психоаналитика, потому что ее жизнь летит под откос. Невероятно жизненная, честная и откровенная история заставляет смеяться, плакать и безудержно возмущаться вместе с главными героями, которые пытаются изменить свою жизнь или хотя бы примириться с ней. Готтлиб доказывает: неважно, насколько мы все разные, от боли и отчаяния не застрахован никто — ни самоуверенный голливудский сценарист, ни жизнерадостная девушка с онкологией, ни даже их стойкий и участливый психотерапевт.

Triumphs of Experience
The Men of the Harvard Grant Study
George E. Vaillant - 2012-10-30
Рейтинг Goodreads
Triumphs of Experience delves into the longest longitudinal study of human development ever undertaken, which charts the physical and emotional health of over 200 men from their undergraduate days to their nineties. The book offers some welcome news for the new old age: our lives continue to evolve in our later years and often become more fulfilling than before. Reporting on all aspects of male life, including relationships, politics and religion, coping strategies, and alcohol use, this study shares a number of surprising findings, such as marriages bringing much more contentment after age 70, and physical aging after 80 is determined less by heredity than by habits formed prior to age 50. This book highlights that the credit for growing old with grace and vitality goes more to ourselves than to our genetic makeup.
