Лавина book cover
Neal Stephenson - 2018-06-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1992)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Перед вами — «Лавина». Жутковатая и отчаянная история двух миров — «внешнего», расколотого на сотни мелких государств, и «виртуального» — объединенного в компьютерную Метавселенную. Там — лучше. Но необходимо соблюдать жесткие «правила игры»… Здесь — проще. Вот только убить могут вполне по-настоящему… Но ни Здесь, ни Там не прекращается война за «Лавину» — наркотик счастья в мире «внешнем» и старейший из вирусов, какой угрожал когда-нибудь миру «виртуальному»!

New Biography of a Dictator
Oleg V. Khlevniuk - 2015-05-19
Рейтинг Goodreads
This biography delves into the life of one of history's most notorious dictators, Josef Stalin, who caused the imprisonment and execution of countless Soviet citizens and famine resulting from his policies. Drawing on previously unknown documents, this book paints a fine-grained portrait of Stalin without mythologizing him as either benevolent or an evil genius. Revealing prologues take the reader into Stalin's favorite dacha, and chronological chapters cover his childhood, rise to power, and major events. A warning against nostalgia for the Stalinist era concludes this comprehensive and compelling read.

If you wanna be president of the United States, I would recommend Lyndon Johnson. Because he was probably the president that was given the least in his life except for maybe Abraham Lincoln.      источник

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - 2000-06-29 (впервые опубликовано в 1943)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Прошу детей простить меня за то, что я посвятил эту книжку взрослому. Скажу в оправдание: этот взрослый мой самый лучший друг. И еще: он понимает все на свете, даже детские книжки. И, наконец, он живет во Франции, а там сейчас голодно и холодно. И он очень нуждается в утешении. Если же все это меня не оправдывает, я посвящу книжку тому мальчику, каким был когда-то мой взрослый друг. Ведь все взрослые сначала были детьми, только мало кто из них об этой помнит. Итак, я исправляю посвящение: Леону Верту, когда он был маленький.

Исследование о природе и причинах богатства народов book cover
Исследование о природе и причинах богатства народов
Adam Smith - 1977-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1776)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. Written in clear and incisive prose, The Wealth of Nations articulates the concepts indispensable to an understanding of contemporary society; and Robert Reich's Introduction both clarifies Smith's analyses and illuminates his overall relevance to the world in which we live. As Reich writes, "Smith's mind ranged over issues as fresh and topical today as they were in the late eighteenth century--jobs, wages, politics, government, trade, education, business, and ethics." Introduction by Robert Reich - Commentary by R. H. Campbell and A. S. Skinner - Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide
