📝Where Good Ideas Come From Book Synopsis : Where do good ideas come from? And what do we need to know and do to have more of them? In Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson, one of our most innovative popular thinkers, explores the secrets of inspiration. Steven Johnson has spent twenty years immersed in creative industries, was active at the dawn of the internet and has a unique perspective that draws on his fluency in fields ranging from neurobiology to new media. Why have cities historically been such hubs of innovation? What do the printing press and Apple have in common? And what does this have to do with the creation and evolution of life itself? Johnson presents the answers to these questions and more in his infectious, culturally omnivoracious style, using examples from thinkers in a range of disciplines - from Charles Darwin to Tim Berners-Lee - to provide the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of inspiration. He identifies the five key principles to the genesis of great ideas, from the cultivation of hunches to the importance of connectivity and how best to make use of new technologies. Most exhilarating is his conclusion: with today's tools and environment, radical innovation is extraordinarily accessible to those who know how to cultivate it. By recognizing where and how patterns of creativity occur - whether within a school, a software platform or a social movement - he shows how we can make more of our ideas good ones.

📝Future Perfect Book Synopsis : Look out for Johnson’s new book, Wonderland, now on sale. Combining the deft social analysis of Where Good Ideas Come From with the optimistic arguments of Everything Bad Is Good For You, New York Times bestselling author Steven Johnson’s Future Perfect makes the case that a new model of political change is on the rise, transforming everything from local governments to classrooms, from protest movements to health care. Johnson paints a compelling portrait of this new political worldview -- influenced by the success and interconnectedness of the Internet, by peer networks, but not dependent on high-tech solutions -- that breaks with the conventional categories of liberal or conservative, public vs. private thinking. With his acclaimed gift for multi-disciplinary storytelling and big idea books, Johnson explores this new vision of progress through a series of fascinating narratives: from the “miracle on the Hudson” to the planning of the French railway system; from the battle against malnutrition in Vietnam to a mysterious outbreak of strange smells in downtown Manhattan; from underground music video artists to the invention of the Internet itself. At a time when the conventional wisdom holds that the political system is hopelessly gridlocked with old ideas, Future Perfect makes the timely and inspiring case that progress is still possible, and that innovative strategies are on the rise. This is a hopeful, affirmative outlook for the future, from one of the most brilliant and inspiring visionaries of contemporary culture.

📝Wonderland Book Synopsis : “A house of wonders itself. . . . Wonderland inspires grins and well-what-d'ya-knows” —The New York Times Book Review From the New York Times–bestselling author of How We Got to Now and Where Good Ideas Come From, a look at the world-changing innovations we made while keeping ourselves entertained. This lushly illustrated history of popular entertainment takes a long-zoom approach, contending that the pursuit of novelty and wonder is a powerful driver of world-shaping technological change. Steven Johnson argues that, throughout history, the cutting edge of innovation lies wherever people are working the hardest to keep themselves and others amused. Johnson’s storytelling is just as delightful as the inventions he describes, full of surprising stops along the journey from simple concepts to complex modern systems. He introduces us to the colorful innovators of leisure: the explorers, proprietors, showmen, and artists who changed the trajectory of history with their luxurious wares, exotic meals, taverns, gambling tables, and magic shows. Johnson compellingly argues that observers of technological and social trends should be looking for clues in novel amusements. You’ll find the future wherever people are having the most fun.

📝 Apple Book Synopsis : Гениальный маркетолог Стив Джобс и гениальный инженер Стив Возняк основали Apple чуть ли не случайно. Двум Стивам было приятно думать, что их хобби превратится в бизнес и позволит им подзаработать на пиццу. Но это решение оказалось поворотным для истории компьютеров и вообще для истории бизнеса. Сегодня Apple – самая дорогая и, возможно, самая инновационная компания в мире, а Стив Джобс, рано ушедший из жизни, считается величайшим бизнес-лидером современности.В этой книге Стив Возняк, тихий гений, стоявший у истоков Apple, откровенно рассказывает о том, как создавалась эта легендарная компания, о том, как он в одиночку изобрел персональный компьютер, о своей дружбе и спорах со Стивом Джобсом, о настоящих причинах успехов и провалов Apple, о бурном прошлом Кремниевой долины и о том, как пытался остановить холодную войну. Это неизвестная история Apple – то, о чем никогда не рассказывали ни Стив Джобс, ни множество официальных и неофициальных биографов компании. Это поразительная и порой просто фантастическая история о том, как совершить революцию и изменить мир вокруг нас – и как делать это с удовольствием.Эта книга – для всех, кого интересует история Стива Джобса и Apple, для всех, кто мечтает о собственном бизнесе, для всех, кто увлечен новыми технологиями и хочет понять, какие люди создают эти технологии и воплощают их в жизнь.Все права защищены.

📝 Book Synopsis : В этой книге рассказывается о нечестности во всех ее проявлениях. Аргументы автора основаны на результатах множественных психологических экспериментов. Несмотря на то что участники тестов принадлежали к разным культурам, удалось выявить лишь незначительные различия в их поведении, обусловленные национальными или государственными традициями.Результаты и выводы исследований заставят каждого взглянуть на себя «со стороны», задуматься над своими представлениями о правде и лжи и, возможно, пересмотреть их.

📝The Invention of Air Book Synopsis : Look out for Johnson’s new book, Wonderland, now on sale. From the bestselling author of Where Good Ideas Come From, The Ghost Map and Everything Bad Is Good for You, a new national bestseller: the “exhilarating”( Los Angeles Times) story of Joseph Priestley, “a founding father long forgotten”(Newsweek) and a brilliant man who embodied the relationship between science, religion, and politics for America's Founding Fathers. In The Invention of Air, national bestselling author Steven Johnson tells the fascinating story of Joseph Priestley—scientist and theologian, protégé of Benjamin Franklin, friend of Thomas Jefferson—an eighteenth-century radical thinker who played pivotal roles in the invention of ecosystem science, the discovery of oxygen, the uses of oxygen, scientific experimentation, the founding of the Unitarian Church, and the intellectual development of the United States. As he did so masterfully in The Ghost Map, Steven Johnson uses a dramatic historical story to explore themes that have long engaged him: innovative strategies, intellectual models, and the way new ideas emerge and spread, and the environments that foster these breakthroughs.

📝 Book Synopsis : Жизнь несправедлива. Деньги, власть, слава и успех распределяются среди людей крайне неравномерно. Но почему одним все, а другим ничего? Правильно ли сводить причины успеха только лишь к личным качествам, дарованным природой? Малкольм Гладуэлл первый, кто обнаружил скрытые законы за тем, что всегда казалось исключительно волей случая. Эти законы объясняют, почему выдающиеся хоккеисты рождаются, как правило, в январе и практически никогда в октябре, почему азиатским школьникам математика дается легче, чем другим, почему, чтобы стать престижным нью-йоркским адвокатом, нужно быть евреем. Книга показывает, что есть общего у Билла Гейтса, «Битлз» и Моцарта и почему им удалось переплюнуть сверстников. «Гении и аутсайдеры» — не пособие «как стать успешным». Это увлекательное путешествие в мир законов жизни, которые вы можете использовать себе на пользу. Книга издательства 'Манн, Иванов и Фербер'

📝Mind Wide Open Book Synopsis : From the author of Emergence and The Ghost Map, Steven Johnson's Mind Wide Open: Why You Are What You Think takes us on a journey to the frontiers of brain science and reveals exactly how we're hardwired to think and feel. 'You are part reptile, part mammal, part primate. You are a dopamine fiend. You are a walking assembly of patterns and waves, clusters of neurons firing in sync with one another...' Experimenting with the latest technology, Stephen Johnson discovers (among other things) that everything we do - from falling in love to forming a sentence - is caused by neurons firing and chemicals swirling around our heads; that there are gadgets which can enable us to control our own brainwaves; that everyone's mind, like their fingerprint, is unique; and this can help us understand our own mental foibles - and see ourselves in a totally new way.

📝Risk Intelligent Supply Chains Book Synopsis : The Turkish economy is very dynamic and growing at phenomenal speeds. For instance, Turkey’s first quarter GDP growth rate was 11 percent in 2011. This growth brings its own risks and benefits. The lessons learned from surviving and thriving in such an environment can be applied to supply chains in any country. Packed with interesting and timely examples from industries such as automotive, airline, and manufacturing, Risk Intelligent Supply Chains: How Leading Turkish Companies Thrive in the Age of Fragility presents strategic insights from various leading Turkish companies regarding their management of supply chain risks. Çağrı Haksöz brings the risk intelligent supply chain (RISC) concept to life for the first time. It answers the question of how to become a risk intelligent supply chain. He proposes the I-Quartet Model with four essential roles "Integrator, Inquirer, Improviser, and Ingenious," that any supply chain network must play to become risk intelligent. The book also presents never-before-published cases and practices of leading Turkish companies that thrive globally in the age of fragility with their supply chain risk intelligence. While providing real-life examples, the book also shares insights obtained in various scientific disciplines. It provides not only an industry focus but also details numerous industry approaches, analyzing their similarities and differences in a manner that allows each industry to learn from the other.

📝 Book Synopsis : «Каждое утро я вскакиваю с постели и наступаю на мину. Эта мина – я сам», – пишет Рэй Брэдбери, и это, пожалуй, и есть квинтэссенция книги. Великий Брэдбери, чьи книги стали классикой при жизни автора, пытается разобраться в себе, в природе писательского творчества. Как рождается сюжет? Как появляется замысел? И вообще – в какой момент человек понимает, что писать книги – и есть его предназначение? Но это отнюдь не скучные и пафосные заметки мэтра. У Брэдбери замечательное чувство юмора, он смотрит на мир глазами не только всепонимающего, умудренного опытом, но и ироничного человека. Так, одна из глав книги называется «Как удерживать и кормить Музу». Кстати, ответ на этот вопрос есть в книге, и он прост – чтобы удерживать Музу, надо жить с увлечением и любить жизнь, прислушиваться к ней и к самому себе.
