Nearly all of us want to be more productive, but finding the method that works for you among the hundreds and hundreds of different tips, tricks and hacks can be a daunting prospect. After graduating college Chris Bailey decided to dedicate a whole year to doing just that - experimenting with as many of the techniques as he could and finding the things that work. Among the experiments that he undertook are going several weeks on little to no sleep; cutting out caffeine and sugar; taking a daily siesta; and more.

Good book with great tips. The best part of it is how the author presents everything. it feels like you made a friend who helps you with productivity. The friend freely admits when he made a mistake and shows that productivity is more than mindless activity. It’s mindfulness.

Welcome to the age of the algorithm, the story of a not-too-distant future where machines rule supreme, making important decisions - in health care, transport, finance, security, what we watch, where we go, even whom we send to prison. So how much should we rely on them? What kind of future do we want? Hannah Fry takes us on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. In Hello World she lifts the lid on their inner workings, demonstrates their power, exposes their limitations and examines whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing.

Frustrated by her students' performance, her relationships with them, and her own daughter's problems in school, Susan D. Blum, a professor of anthropology, set out to understand why her students found their educational experiences at a top-tier institution so profoundly difficult and unsatisfying. Through her research and in conversations with her students, she discovered a troubling mismatch between the goals of the university and the needs of students.

Having gone to a Waldorf School myself before becoming a University Professor, I can relate to many of the author‘s problems with today‘s education system. However, I would have liked to see more concrete ideas, and more in depths discussion of alternative ways of education. Do they work better? Are children and students more engaged there? Do they learn more? If she wants to change the whole society, what would she like better? And how to do it? I liked her approach to teaching but it all remained too subjective for my taste. Too much personal experience and not enough data. And the speaker did not help either. It sounded all a bit whiney.

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis - that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over 40 years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

Russian literature famously probes the depths of the human soul, and in this series of 36 insightful lectures prepared by a frequently honored teacher legendary among educators in both the United States and Russia-you probe just as deeply into the extraordinary legacy that is Russian Literature itself.Professor Weil introduces you to masterpieces such as Tolstoy's War and Peace, Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, Gogol's Dead Souls, Chekhov's The Seagull, Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago, and many other great novels, stories, plays, and poems.

This is a very nice course. It gives a great introduction into classic Russian literature. In the course, many important works of literature are summarized and the Professor gives not only the English translation but also the Russian original to provide an insight into the rhythm and melody of Russian poetry. This is enjoyable and the enthusiasm of the Professor is very authentic. Sometimes I find the language a bit repetitive, but this also gives it the feel of a real lecture where the professor just talks to his students. I would have liked to learn more about the more contemporary literary scene in Russia but I suppose a course called "classics" cannot be expected to provide an insight into recent developments.

Western philosophy is a vast intellectual tradition, the product of thousands of years of revolutionary thought built up by a rich collection of brilliant minds. But to understand the Western intellectual tradition is to get only half the story. The Eastern intellectual tradition has made just as important a contribution-and is also the product of thousands of years of cumulative thought by a distinct group of brilliant thinkers. Their ideas demonstrate wholly different ways of approaching and solving the same fundamental issues that concerned the West's greatest thinkers, such as . the existence of God; . the meaning of life; and. the nature of truth and reality.This epic and comprehensive 36-lecture examination of the East's most influential philosophers and thinkers-from a much-honored teacher and scholar-offers a thought-provoking look at the surprising connections and differences between East and West. By introducing you to the people-including The Buddha, Ashoka, Prince Shotoku, Confucius, and Gandhi-responsible for molding Asian philosophy and for giving birth to a wide variety of spiritual and ideological systems, it will strengthen your knowledge of cultures that play increasingly important roles in our globalized 21st-century world.

If one is interested in understanding India, China, Japan, and Korea from within, this is the course to start as well as to deepen one's knowledge. It offers a rich, almost overwhelming amount of information in an approachable way. It explains the development of Hinduism, Buddhim, Islam, Confucianism, the Korean alphabet, Japanese Zen-Buddhism and nationalism, Maoism and the historic as well as the philosophic and political developments influencing all of them. The lecture concludes with a summary and an explanation of how all of this influences modern Asia from the role of the cast system in today's India to the importance of Chinese business cards. I will definitely come back to this course!

Eastern Europe has long been thought of as the "Other Europe", a region rife with political upheaval, shifting national borders, an astonishing variety of ethnic diversity, and relative isolation from the centers of power in the West. It has also been, and continues to be, pivotal in the course of world events. A History of Eastern Europe offers a sweeping 1,000-year tour with a particular focus on the region's modern history.

People who grow up in western Europe (like me) often do not know much about Eastern Europe. Often, people (including me) are not even aware of this lack of knowledge and understanding. This is a pity as this lecture series shows. The listener learns about the history of Poland, the Balkans, Ukraine, Jewish life in the east (among other things) and understands so much more about history, about religion, and politics and how a European identity must include the Eastern perspective just as much as the Western perspective. The teacher is great to listen to and explains the issues very well. I can only encourage as many listeners as possible to fill their gaps of knowledge with a new understanding for the Eastern part of Europe.

The course offers very good advice for coping with writer's block and for drafting and then revising a piece of writing. While the course is not perfect, the practical advice makes it worthwhile listening for the experienced and the novice writer alike. Listening to the course seems a particularly good idea for somebody like me who is not a native speaker but likes to write for an English speaking audience.

The book is a collection of books articles etc. on time management and while many of the tips are good and can really help one to get organised, there is too much repetition. We hear at least three times how to set goals and priorities.
Moreover, following all the advice seems to me like guarantee for burn out. The author also underestimates the importance of office gossip and social connections for success. While it is true that one should not spend too much time on the job gossiping, it is not necessarily the colleague who always says "I must get back to work" who is promoted and who develops the best people skills.
