Most people are born with the desire of seeking a better understanding of the natural world. Perhaps that is why most<br />major cultures in the history of civilisation have given rise to thinkers who tried to provide some kind of interpretation<br />of natural events. There are so many individuals whose discoveries have enriched our lives, expanded our imagination<br />and liberated us from the bonds of ignorance and superstition.The man who for the first time took a block of wood and<br />shaped it into a wheel was a great scientist. The wheel truly revolutionised human life. But the names of many of the older<br />‘scientists’, whose discoveries must have made a seminal impact on agriculture, hunting and the other occupations of<br />primitive forms of society, are now lost in the mists of time.<br /><br />The aim of this book is to give readers a brief but meaningful insight into the life and work of some eminent scientists.

<b> If you want to learn about one of history's greatest military commanders and uncover some of his secrets of drive--drive that enabled him and his small army to first subdue all of Greece and then the mighty Persian Empire--then you want to read this book.</b><br /><br />Some people like to think that geniuses are so inherently extraordinary that they navigate their journeys with clairvoyant ease. <br /><br /><i>This simply isn't true. </i><br /><br />Greatness does not come lightly. It requires that you make sacrifices of time, interests, and--sometimes--possessions. The further you move toward greatness, the more greatness demands from you.<br /><br />But all barriers yield to one mythical quality: drive. The will to persist and overcome. To never give up. To never accept defeat. <br /><br />Few stories better illustrate this better than the life of one of the most extraordinary warriors the world has even known; a man of legendary ambition, will, and grit: Alexander the Great.<br /><br />In this book, you'll be taken on a whirlwind journey through Alexander's life and conquests, and not only learn about the successes and mistakes of one of history's greatest conquerors, but also how to awaken a fire in your own life and adventures.<br /><br /><b>Read this book now and learn lessons from Alexander the Great on why drive is so vital to awakening your inner genius, and learn insights into the real power of purpose, how to defeat the insidious force of "Resistance" that holds us back, and more.<br /> </b>

<p>Over drinks with her favorite professor and her future husband, a 25-year-old Sara Miller founded one of the most influential academic publishing houses on the planet. This career-spanning autobiography follows Sara Miller McCune and the company that emerged from that cocktail hour, SAGE Publishing. Read along as over 50 years SAGE grows from publishing a single journal promoted by direct mail (from a list provided by Daniel Patrick Moynihan) into a globe-spanning and proudly independent company with a core belief that engaged scholarship lies at the heart of any healthy society.</p><p>While the book is an excellent source for those interested in publishing, education (especially the rise of social science in the post-war academy), and entrepreneurship, perhaps its most powerful impact is as an inspiring tale for young women anxious to start their own business and chart an independent course in life.</p><br /><br /><p>This book is only available in e-book format.</p>

Che interesse può avere un professionista – sia esso un giornalista, ma anche un avvocato, uno scrittore, un politico, un blogger o un attivista – nell’imparare a utilizzare, seppure nelle loro funzioni di base, programmi che sono solitamente adoperati da hacker o, comunque, da utenti più attenti del normale, a volte sino a sfiorare livelli di paranoia, alla sicurezza in possibili contesti critici o “ostili”? Di certo, il senso delle regole elementari che seguono non è quello di voler far diventare chiunque“hacker in un’ora”. Il percorso verso l’hacking è lungo, tormentato, fatto di tante prove e curiosità, di tentativi, di errori, di notti insonni passate a digitare codice e di un approccio per così dire naïf agli strumenti elettronici che ci circondano che, anche a causa di una tecnologia sempre più touch e semplice da utilizzare (e che spinge poco l’utente a ragionare), è ormai fuori moda.Però è pur vero che tutti, anche coloro che pensano di essere negati per il computer o che sono convinti di non aver tempo da dedicare a nuove esperienze, possono essere un po’ hacker nella vita quotidiana, ossia possono cercare di superare quel velo di normalità cui le tecnologie di oggi ci abituano – inteso come utilizzo tipico – e spingersi, anche solo per curiosità, verso strumenti che possano portare benefici imme­diati anche nella vita informatica di tutti i giorni e, soprattutto, nelle professioni più delicate. I dieci approcci che illustrerò in questo percorso, scelti appositamente sia per garantire un’utilità imme­diata sia per accrescere la curiosità e la conoscenza, non sono gli unici – e forse non sono neppure i migliori – per raggiungere un determinato fine. Ma sono interessanti e, soprattutto, sono già utilizzati da decine di migliaia di persone nel mondo per i fini più vari. Ho strutturato questo “percorso verso la conoscenza” in livelli, come se fosse un videogioco, anche se ogni strumento vanta una sua indipendenza e può essere analizzato ex se. Soprattutto, non ho scritto, né detto, tutto ciò che c’è da sapere su questi strumenti, ma mi sono limitato a “suggerire” delle strade per poi lasciare l’approfondimento dei temi a chi è realmente interessato e curioso. E un po’ hacker dentro.
