Outwitting History by means of Aaron Lansky

Outwitting History: The Amazing Adventures of a Man Who Rescued a Million Yiddish Books by means of Aaron Lansky
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2.7MB | Retail
Overview: In 1980 a whole frame of Jewish literature-the bodily remnant of Yiddish culture-was at the verge of extinction. Precious volumes that had survived Hitler and Stalin have been being handed down from older generations of immigrants to their non-Yiddish-speaking kids, most effective to be discarded or destroyed. So Aaron Lansky, a twenty-three-year-old graduate pupil, issued a global enchantment for undesirable Yiddish works. Lansky’s pastime led him to commute from space to deal with accumulating the books-and the tales of those Jewish refugees and the colourful highbrow global they inhabited.

He and a workforce of volunteers salvaged books from dusty attics, crumbling basements, demolition websites, and dumpsters. When they started, students concept that fewer than seventy thousand Yiddish books existed. In reality, Lansky’s challenge would pass on to save lots of over 1.five million volumes, from well-known writers like Sholem Aleichem and I. B. Singer to one-of-a-kind Soviet prints.

Overview: When anthropology professor Gideon Oliver is offered a teaching fellowship at U.S. military bases in Germany, Sicily, Spain, and Holland, he wastes no time accepting.

On his first night, he is forced to fend off two desperate, black-clad men who have invaded his Heidelberg hotel room with intent to kill. And then there’s the little matter of a few trivial details that the recruiting agency forgot to mention-such as the fact that the two previous holders of the fellowship both met with mysterious ends.

Brave New Work by Aaron Dignan (.M4B)

Brave New Work: Are You Ready to Reinvent Your Organization? by Aaron Dignan
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 232 MB
Overview: "This is the management book of the year. Clear, powerful, and urgent, it’s a must-read for anyone who cares about where they work and how they work." (Seth Godin, author of This Is Marketing)
"This book is a breath of fresh air. Read it now, and make sure your boss does, too." (Adam Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg)
When fast-scaling startups and global organizations get stuck, they call Aaron Dignan. In this book, he reveals his proven approach for eliminating red tape, dissolving bureaucracy, and doing the best work of your life.
He’s found that nearly everyone, from Wall Street to Silicon Valley, points to the same frustrations: lack of trust, bottlenecks in decision making, siloed functions and teams, meeting and email overload, tiresome budgeting, short-term thinking, and more. Is there any hope for a solution? Haven’t countless business gurus promised the answer, yet changed almost nothing about the way we work? That’s because we fail to recognize that organizations aren’t machines to be predicted and controlled. They’re complex human systems full of potential waiting to be released. Dignan says you can’t fix a team, department, or organization by tinkering around the edges.
Over the years, he has helped his clients completely reinvent their operating systems – the fundamental principles and practices that shape their culture – with extraordinary success. Imagine a bank that abandoned traditional budgeting, only to outperform its competition for decades. An appliance manufacturer that divided itself into 2,000 autonomous teams, resulting not in chaos but rapid growth. A healthcare provider with an HQ of just 50 people supporting over 14,000 people in the field – that is named the "best place to work" year after year. And even a team that saved $3 million per year by cancelling one monthly meeting. Their stories may sound improbable, but in Brave New Work you’ll learn exactly how they and other organizations are inventing a smarter, healthier, and more effective way to work. Not through top down mandates, but through a groundswell of autonomy, trust, and transparency.
Whether you lead a team of 10 or 10,000, improving your operating system is the single most powerful thing you can do. The only question is, are you ready?

Overview: Architecture matters. It matters to cities, the planet, and human lives. How architects design and what they build has an impact that usually lasts for generations. The more we understand architecture―the deeper we probe the decisions and designs that go into making a building―the better our world becomes.

In approximately fifty themes, drawing on his inside knowledge of the architectural world, he explores a broad spectrum of topics, from the meaning of domestic space to the spectacle of the urban realm. Accessible, instructive, and hugely enjoyable, Why Architecture Matters will open the eyes of anyone dreaming of becoming an architect, and will bring a wry smile to anyone who already is.
