Jacob Helberg - 2021-10-12
Рейтинг Goodreads
This eye-opening book from a former news policy lead at Google reveals the high-stakes global cyberwar brewing between Western democracies and authoritarian regimes like China and Russia, and the potential threat it poses to our democracy. With unnervingly convincing evidence, the author explains how the battle over controlling software and internet hardware could redivide the world into 20th-century-style spheres of influence, affecting every aspect of our lives from the economy to national security. A must-read wake-up call for anyone concerned about the future of our world.

Страх и надежда
Как Черчилль спас Британию от катастрофы
Erik Larson - 2020-02-25
Рейтинг Goodreads
В 1940 году Адольф Гитлер вторгся в Голландию и Бельгию, пали Польша и Чехословакия, а до эвакуации войск с побережья Франции оставалось всего две недели. Жители Лондона и окрестностей со дня на день ожидали вторжения немецких войск с моря и с воздуха, а впереди была Битва за Британию — изматывающее противостояние с силами люфтваффе. В это сложное для страны время Уинстон Черчилль занял пост премьер-министра Великобритании, чтобы продемонстрировать всему миру, что такое истинное политическое лидерство. В своей книге Эрик Ларсон описывает повседневную жизнь Черчилля, его семьи и обычных горожан в самый мрачный год в истории Лондона XX века, основываясь на дневниках, архивных документах и рассекреченных докладах разведки, некоторые из которых стали доступны историкам совсем недавно. «Страх и надежда» — это увлекательный рассказ о том, как красноречие и упорство великого государственного деятеля объединило нацию перед натиском неумолимого ужаса.

Now as a leader, what is your real job, what's your role? Strictly speaking there is only one book ever written that actually explains how to do this. It's rather old, written in 1982 by Andy Grove, it's quite famous, and successful. And his definition of what your job is, is to maximize the output of the organization.      источник
