📒 ✍ Уильям Шекспир
📝 Book Synopsis : «Есть в жизни у тебя черты такие,Что наблюдателю по ним легкоПрочесть всю будущность твою. И сам тыИ качества твои не таковы,Чтоб ты на одного себе их тратил:Себе не вправе ты принадлежать.Как факелы, нас небо зажигаетНе для того, чтоб для себя горели...»
📒 ✍ Трумен Капоте
📝 Book Synopsis : Трумен Капоте, автор таких бестселлеров, как «Завтрак у Тиффани» (повесть, прославленная в 1961 году экранизацией с Одри Хепберн в главной роли), «Голоса травы», «Другие голоса, другие комнаты», «Призраки в солнечном свете» и другие, входит в число крупнейших американских прозаиков XX века. Самым значительным произведением Капоте многие считают роман «Хладнокровное убийство», основанный на истории реального преступления и раскрывающий природу насилия как сложного социального и психологического феномена. Книга Капоте, мгновенно ставшая бестселлером, породила особый жанр «романа-репортажа» и открыла путь прозе Нормана Мейлера и Тома Вулфа. Взвешенность и непредубежденность авторской позиции, блестящая выверенность стиля, полифоничность изображения сделали роман Капоте образцом документально-художественной литературы; в списке 100 лучших книг XX века по версии газеты The Guardian «Хладнокровное убийство» заняло 84-ю позицию. Одноименная экранизация Ричарда Брукса, выпущенная сразу после публикации романа Капоте, была номинирована на четыре «Оскара».

📒Black Aces High ✍ Robert K. Wilcox
📝Black Aces High Book Synopsis : A riveting account of a modern fighter squadron at war and the exploits, triumphs, and traumas of its pilots. The Black Aces. Their courage, ferocity, and instincts made them legendary in military aviation. Flying F-14 Tomcats, they played as much a part in recent US operations in Kosovo as did any air squadron in the theater, air force or navy, and probably more. Because of its superior performance, sophisticated equipment and the two-man crews who took it upon themselves to do something extra, the Tomcat and its aviators distinguished themselves over and over. Forced to locate Serb fighters operating covertly in a mountainous land much like Afghanistan, with almost no help from ground spotters, VF-41 pilots and backseaters spearheaded new methods for the navy to pinpoint, identify, and destroy enemy troops and weapons. These were tasks that fighter crews had seldom had to do before. The Aces had to break rules and frequently go in harms way in order to be successful. And they performed so well that for the first time in aviation history, a fighter squadron - theirs - was awarded The Wade McClusky Trophy, the navy's premier bombing honor. The award, named for a World War II dive bomber pilot and post-WorldWar II admiral, had been won previously only by bombing squadrons. Robert Wilcox spent two weeks with The Black Aces aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Roosevelt and here provides a long-awaited, never-before-seen glimpse into the world of a modern navy fighter squadron. Wilcox takes readers into the cockpits as the pilots go out and attack targets while avoiding anti-aircraft weaponry. He takes us into the war room as they plan their strikes and into their cabins as they contemplate the danger they are facing. And the reader can't help but worry for these men as they head off into battle, can't help sitting on the edge of the seat as they try to land at night, in a rainstorm, with waves crashing against the ship, and can't help ducking with them as they dodge missile attacks. And in the end, it is impossible not to feel for these aviators as they question their own courage, or to cheer for them when they finally return safely. i3797Black Aces High is a story of fear and courage, mishap and success, fighting spirit and military innovation. It's a human story that goes behind the smiling, sunglass-wearing facade of aviators flashing a "V", the sterile, slow motion target video that has become a staple of Pentagon briefings, and the rock 'n' roll cowboy image of fighter crews seen in the movies. Instead, it is a story that shows who these aviators really are and what they do beyond what we know, a story which probably will be repeated again and again as our carriers continue to be deployed in the new, 21 century war our nation is fighting.
📒The Sweet Spot ✍ Christine Carter, Ph.D.
📝The Sweet Spot Book Synopsis : Learn how to achieve more by doing less! Live in that zone you’ve glimpsed but can’t seem to hold on to—the sweet spot where you have the greatest strength, but also the greatest ease. Not long ago, Christine Carter, a happiness expert at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center and a speaker, writer, and mother, found herself exasperated by the busyness of modern life: too many conflicting obligations and not enough time, energy, or patience to get everything done. She tried all the standard techniques—prioritizing, multitasking, delegating, even napping—but none really worked. Determined to create a less stressful life for herself—without giving up her hard-won career success or happiness at home—she road-tested every research-based tactic that promised to bring more ease into her life. Drawing on her vast knowledge of the latest research related to happiness, productivity, and elite performance, she followed every strategy that promised to give her more energy—or that could make her more efficient, creative, or intelligent. Her trials and errors are our reward. In The Sweet Spot, Carter shares the combination of practices that transformed her life from overwhelmed and exhausting to joyful, relaxed, and productive. From instituting daily micro-habits that save time to bigger picture shifts that convert stress into productive and creative energy, The Sweet Spot shows us how to • say “no” strategically and when to say “yes” with abandon • make decisions about routine things once to free our minds to focus on higher priorities • stop multitasking and gain efficiency • “take recess” in sync with the brain’s need for rest • use technology in ways that bolster, instead of sap, energy • increase your ratio of positive to negative emotions Complete with practical “easiest thing” tips for instant relief as well as stories from Carter’s own experience of putting The Sweet Spot into action, this timely and inspiring book will inoculate you against “The Overwhelm,” letting you in on the possibilities for joy and freedom that come when you stop trying to do everything right—and start doing the right things.
