Patagonia — бизнес в стиле серфинг book cover
Patagonia — бизнес в стиле серфинг
Как альпинист создал крупнейшую компанию спортивной одежды и снаряжения
Yvon Chouinard - 2006-09-05
Рейтинг Goodreads
История известного альпиниста Ивона Шуинара, который, по собственному признанию, меньше всего хотел становиться бизнесменом, и созданной им легендарной компании Patagonia. Во главу успеха в бизнесе Шуинар ставит философию, которая охватывает все аспекты работы — от найма сотрудников до выбора поставщиков и способов производства. В ее основе лежат социальная ответственность, бережное отношение к экологии и желание быть примером для других компаний.

Breaking Trail book cover
Breaking Trail
A Climbing Life
Arlene Blum - 2007-03-05 (впервые опубликовано в 2005)
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Breaking Trail" tells the story of Arlene Blum, a legendary trailblazer who broke gender stereotypes in climbing and science. Blum led the first all-female teams to successful ascents of Mount McKinley and Annapurna, as well as being the first American woman to attempt Mount Everest. Her scientific work also led to important legislation banning carcinogens in children’s sleepwear. With candor and humor, Blum recounts her journey from an overprotected childhood in Chicago to the tops of some of the highest peaks on earth, and to a life lived on her own terms. This book is a moving testament to the power of taking risks and pursuing dreams.

Mira Jacob - 2019-03-26
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore American identity, interracial families, and the realities that divide us in this "beautiful and eye-opening" graphic memoir. Follow Mira Jacob's conversations with her half-Jewish, half-Indian son as they navigate difficult questions about race, color, and love amidst the tensions of the 2016 election. Written with humor and vulnerability, this deeply relatable book is a love letter to the art of conversation and the hope that comes from our most challenging questions.

Ruined by Design
How Designers Destroyed the World, and What We Can Do to Fix It
Mike Monteiro - 2019-04-12
Рейтинг Goodreads
The book explores how the world is functioning exactly as designed, with everything from guns to social media causing harm. The author makes the case that design is a political act and designers are responsible for their creations. While the book may stir up anger, it provides the tools needed to make better decisions, build diverse teams, and confidently say no to harmful projects. It's a must-read for designers who want to understand their role in creating a better world.
Daniel Burka
I love that @monteiro writes in such clear, direct language. Reading his new book "Ruined by Design" might be difficult or hurt your ego, designers. And, you might disagree with Mike. But you should read it for a clear-headed viewpoint on our mistakes and challenges. 👏      источник

Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World--and Why Things Are Better Than You Think
Hans Rosling - 2018-04-03
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Фактологичность" — это рассказ о десяти самых частых ловушках, в которые попадает наш мозг, пытаясь оценить положение дел в мире, а также о том прогрессе, который мы привыкли не замечать, но который каждый день делает нашу жизнь лучше. Специалист по проблемам мирового здравоохранения, основатель шведского отделения "Врачей без границ", создатель проекта Gapminder, Ханс Рослинг неоднократно входил в список 100 самых влиятельных людей мира. Его книга "Фактологичность" — это попытка дать читателям с самым разным уровнем подготовки эффективный инструмент мышления в борьбе с новостной паникой. С помощью проверенной статистики и наглядных визуализаций Рослинг описывает ловушки, в которые попадает наш разум, и рассказывает, как в действительности сегодня обстоят дела с бедностью и болезнями, рождаемостью и смертностью, сохранением редких видов животных и глобальными климатическими изменениями.
