Dein Ego ist dein Feind

So besiegst du deinen größten Gegner

Viele Menschen glauben, dass die Gründe, die sie daran hindern, erfolgreich zu sein, in ihrer Umwelt zu finden sind. Aber in Wirklichkeit steckt der größte Feind in jedem von uns selbst: unser Ego. Es macht uns blind für unsere Fehler, verhindert, dass wir aus ihnen lernen, und hemmt unsere Entwicklung. Denn gerade in Zeiten, in denen die schamlose Selbstdarstellung in sozialen Netzwerken oder im Reality-TV eine Selbstverständlichkeit ist, liegt die wahre Herausforderung in der Idee, weniger Zeit in das Erzählen der eigenen Größe zu stecken und stattdessen die wirklich wichtigen Missionen des Lebens zu meistern. Mit einer Fülle an Beispielen aus Literatur, Philosophie und Geschichte zeigt Ryan Holiday eindrucksvoll und praxisnah, wie die Überwindung des eigenen Egos zum unnachahmlichen Erfolg verhilft. Bewaffnet mit den Erkenntnissen aus diesem Buch kann sich jeder seinem größten Feind stellen – dem eigenen Ego.

Über einen Zeitraum von sechs Jahrzehnten hat sich Sir Tom Jones in einem Geschäft über Wasser gehalten, das für seine Kurzlebigkeit berüchtigt ist. Mit einer Wucht, die aus seiner tiefen Liebe für die Musik stammt, gelang ihm der Durchbruch in der unberechenbaren Musikindustrie - er wurde zum Megastar und nahm eine ungeheure Fülle an Songs auf. Im Laufe seiner Karriere spielte Jones mit Künstlern aus allen musikalischen Genres, von Rock, Pop und Dancemusik bis hin zu Country, Blues und Soul, darunter Größen wie Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Robbie Williams und Portishead. So unterschiedlich die Stile, so unverwechselbar war immer seine Stimme.

Your dreams belong to you. Theyre private, and no one needs to know what happens in them. But what if someone could invade your dreams? And once in, what if that someone could control what happens while you lie there, powerless to affect the outcome? Dylan Ward can do that. Struggling to make partner in a law firm and finding it hard to hold on to a romantic relationship, his nightly dreams become his escape into a world that seems far happier than his real one. When he learns about the phenomenon of lucid dreaming, where the sleeping person is actually conscious of the events in the dream, he immerses himself in an attempt to master it. Soon his nights are filled with fun and adventure, where he has the power to control events and find temporary relief from his mundane life. That relief soon pales when he reads an old legend about dream sharing that leads him to the idea of entering and controlling the dreams of others. What starts out as an interesting experiment soon turns into an obsession of hacking into the dreams of the people in his life. He begins a strange quest for vengeance, power, love, and all the things that are missing from his real world. But its when he devises a way to teach other people how to invade dreams that the dangers of his obsession become frighteningly clear. The Dream Hacker moves between imagination and reality, along the hazy sleeping path that everyone travels but cant really navigate. Mixing equal parts of dark humor and the angst of modern culture, the story challenges our notions of understanding what is real and asks just how far a person will go to change the course of his life.

Tom Petty: Rock 'n' Roll Guardian is the first intimate portrait of one of rock’s most enduring figures. Songs like American Girl, The Waiting and I Won’t Back Down have touched people from all walks of life because he sung about what he knew – love won, love lost and hardship overcome. Tom Petty’s predisposition to find trouble was always matched by his steely determination to overcome it. After shaky beginnings with his first band, Tom Petty steered his way through bankruptcy, drama and personal loss – including the deaths of his bandmates Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Heartbreakers bassist Howie Epstein – to forge a lasting impact on the world, selling more than 80 million records worldwide. In the wake of his death, this celebratory Omnibus Enhanced edition now features curated Spotify playlists of his early influences, his collaborations and his greatest songs. Additionally, an interactive Digital Timeline of his life charts his uncertain path with video footage of interviews, live performances and more. Born too late to be in the vanguard of rock ’n’ roll first time round, he has nonetheless proved a truly memorable keeper of the flame. This is his remarkable story...

Lou Farren loves two things in life: rock and roll and his friend Cree, a beautiful drummer in a pop band who has no idea how he feels. Adrift in a post-college world of boring computer jobs, Lou agrees to be the roadie for the Day Action Band, a brilliant but unknown ensemble made up of Cree, bassist Joey, and Lou's best friend, Tim, on guitar. Opening for the Radicals, a British group with a single climbing the charts, the band travels coast to coast, moving closer and closer to fame. As Lou drives the Day Action Band's van, sells their T-shirts, and mediates their arguments, he learns what it's like to stand just outside the spotlight. He watches Tim charm women from the stage, sees Joey achieve the coolness he's always wanted, and tries unsuccessfully to look away when Cree falls into a tour romance with the lead singer of the Radicals. Every night Lou sits at a table in the back of the club, envying his friends and facing the idea that his life might be significant only for its relationship to theirs. When the band comes close to breaking up, Lou is forced to confront what he really wants for them, and for himself. Reminiscent of Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, Matt O'Keefe's hilarious and poignant debut is the story of a young man coming to grips with the distance between his dreams and his reality. You Think You Hear is about unrequited love, a romance with pop music, and the search for moments in life as satisfying as a perfect song.

Noam Chomsky ist der einflussreichste Intellektuelle der Vereinigten Staaten und in seinem neuen Buch befasst er sich erstmals umfassend mit dem großen Thema unserer Zeit: der sozialen Ungleichheit. Anhand von zehn Prinzipien zur Konzentration von Reichtum und Macht und mithilfe zahlreicher historischer Texte der amerikanischen Geschichte erklärt Noam Chomsky, wie der amerikanische Traum – dass jeder es mit harter Arbeit zu etwas bringen kann – in den letzten Jahrzehnten beerdigt und ein System nie da gewesener sozialer Ungleichheit errichtet wurde, von dem letztlich nur einige wenige profitieren. Requiem für den amerikanischen Traum macht die Breite und Tiefe von Noam Chomskys Denken zugänglich wie kein anderes seiner Bücher und verdeutlicht seine politischen Ideen mit einer beispiellosen Direktheit. Die Pflichtlektüre für alle, die noch Hoffnung auf eine gemeinsame, demokratische Gestaltung unserer Zukunft haben.
