Nick Kostov, Sean McLain - 2022-08-09
Рейтинг Goodreads
Follow the remarkable rise and fall of Carlos Ghosn, a business executive who gained worldwide fame for his incisive business savvy. Chronicled by two Wall Street Journal reporters, this book details Ghosn's innovations, hubris, alleged crimes, and daring international escape. Ghosn rose to prominence at Michelin, Renault, and Nissan, earning him the titles of Le Cost Killer and Mr. 7-Eleven. However, his statements of a merger with Renault created distrust, with resentments brewing amongst Nissan executives. Accused of financial misconduct, Ghosn vehemently denied allegations while planning a shocking escape. Drawing from intensive investigative reporting, Nick Kostov and Sean McLain explore the life and actions of a man who took drastic measures to ensure he would finally get his due.

The Difficulty of Being Good book cover
The Difficulty of Being Good
On the Subtle Art of Dharma
Gurcharan Das - 2009-08-15
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover a new way of thinking about morality and doing the right thing in Gurcharan Das's latest book. Turning to the Mahabharata for answers, he explores the elusive notion of dharma and how it applies to our daily lives. Unlike most debates on morality and ethics, the epic's characters are flawed and their experiences shed light on our own dilemmas. This thought-provoking read holds a mirror up to readers, forcing them to confront their own self-deception and provides practical guidance on how to apply the lessons of dharma to their lives.

Думай медленно book cover
Думай медленно
Daniel Kahneman - 2011-10-25
Рейтинг Goodreads
Наши действия и поступки определены нашими мыслями. Но всегда ли мы контролируем наше мышление? Нобелевский лауреат Даниэль Канеман объясняет, почему мы подчас совершаем нерациональные поступки и как мы принимаем неверные решения. У нас имеется две системы мышления. «Медленное» мышление включается, когда мы решаем задачу или выбираем товар в магазине. Обычно нам кажется, что мы уверенно контролируем эти процессы, но не будем забывать, что позади нашего сознания в фоновом режиме постоянно работает «быстрое» мышление - автоматическое, мгновенное и неосознаваемое…
