Как принимать решения в условиях неопределенности
Annie Duke - 2018-02-06
Рейтинг Goodreads
Чемпионка в покере и бизнес-консультант Энни Дьюк рассказывает о том, как принимать лучшие решения в условиях неопределенности. Мы каждый день принимаем решения в уверенности, что учли все факторы, и рассчитываем на хороший результат. В действительности мы всегда действуем в условиях неопределенности, а результат зависит, в конечном счете, от двух главных факторов: нашего мастерства и удачи. Как в покере. Но эта книга не о карточной игре, а о том, чем полезно мышление по принципу ставок вне игорного стола и как его использовать. Энни Дьюк - известный игрок в покер - предлагает относиться к решениям как к ставкам. Принцип ставок поможет: - научиться отделять качество решения от его результата; - различать удачу и мастерство; - точнее анализировать результаты; - шире смотреть на мир; - принимать более эффективные решения. Эти навыки пригодятся в бизнесе, личных отношениях и планировании - везде, где нужно осваивать новое и делать выбор.

Закономерности развития цивилизации за 5000 лет
Will Durant - 1997-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1968)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Собрание эссе двух выдающихся мыслителей нашего времени, охватывающее более 5000 лет истории человечества. Авторы, профессиональные историки и академические ученые выявили закономерности общественного и исторического развития, цикличность исторического процесса и конечность любого социально-экономического строя. Основываясь на своих исследованиях и на философском подходе, они очень образно и увлекательно рассказали о том, какой путь прошла Западная цивилизация (от истоков до начала XIX века) и почему ее путь был сложен именно из этих вех.
