Wir alle kennen Situationen, in denen wir uns als kraftvoll gestaltend erleben und das Gefühl haben, mit Lust und Lebendigkeit Dinge zu bewegen und Schwierigkeiten zu bewältigen. Geprägt wird solches Erleben durch eine eigentümliche Gleichzeitigkeit von ernsthaftem Einsatz und spielerischer Leichtigkeit. Situationen dieser Art sind Momente des Gelingens und des Glücks. Wir können sie nicht erzwingen; wir können aber Bedingungen fördern, unter denen solche Momente zustande kommen. Was braucht es, um ein ""Leben mit Drive"" zu führen? Die entscheidenden Weichenstellungen dafür liegen in uns selb.

Speed Tile: A parable of Technological Dependence... John Hunter, an unfulfilled artist, literally chucks his video production business into the Chicago River and embarks on a quest to understand the strange and subtle powers of the speed tile, an odd, technological artifact that he finds in the dunes of Michigan. A haunting ghost town covered by sand, an ancient, witch-like bookstore owner and a lumbering house-mover all provide hints to the secret powers inside these alien devices. Hunter’s family watches in horror as the speed tile invades his consciousness and the mind of his twelve-year-old daughter as he creates ever more bizarre and frightening images inspired by the evil device. A mysterious physicist from the Far East and an evil sea captain from the past converge with Hunter on a deserted island in Lake Michigan seeking the secret of eternal life. In a crumbling lighthouse, Hunter finally confronts the horror that his speed tile has become.

Still Alive

Swept up as a child in the events of Nazi-era Europe, Ruth Kluger saw her family's comfortable Vienna existence systematically undermined and destroyed. By age eleven, she had been deported, along with her mother, to Theresienstadt, the first in a series of concentration camps which would become the setting for her precarious childhood. Kluger's story of her years in the camps and her struggle to establish a life after the war as a refugee survivor in New York, has emerged as one of the most powerful accounts of the Holocaust. Interwoven with blunt, unsparing observations of childhood and nuanced reflections of an adult who has spent a lifetime thinking about the Holocaust, Still Alive rejects all easy assumptions about history, both political and personal. Whether describing the abuse she met at her own mother's hand, the life-saving generosity of a woman SS aide in Auschwitz, the foibles and prejudices of Allied liberators, or the cold shoulder offered by her relatives when she and her mother arrived as refugees in New York, Kluger sees and names an unexpected reality which has little to do with conventional wisdom or morality tales. Still Alive is a memoir of the pursuit of selfhood against all odds, a fiercely bittersweet coming-of-age story in which the protagonist must learn never to rely on comforting assumptions, but always to seek her own truth.

It takes a certain kind of person to stand out from other mixed martial arts fighters as both a wild man and a rock star. Chris Leben, otherwise known as “The Crippler,” is that kind of person. His reputation started on the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter, a reality show where hopeful fighters vie for a UFC contract and a path to greatness. The world saw an out-of-control brawler with a penchant for destruction. But that was only half the story. From the slums of northwest Oregon, Leben has spent a lifetime coping with deep scars left by an absent father and ever-present struggles with alcoholism and drug abuse. He’s been in jail eleven times, including for going AWOL. During his ten-year career in ultimate fighting, Leben became one of the most recognized figures in the sport, enthralling audiences around the world with his wild, headfirst style of fighting as he took on some of the world’s best fighters, including Anderson Silva, Yoshihiro Akiyama, and Wanderlei Silva. The Crippler is not just an exciting account of his rise to prominence within the UFC; it’s the incredible story of a renowned wild man dealing with his personal demons and learning that the toughest opponent is always yourself.

Charlie ist sechzehn, er ist in seinem ersten Jahr in der Highschool und hat die Probleme, die man in diesem Alter so hat: mit Mädchen, mit der Schule, mit sich selbst. Zumindest scheint es so zu sein. Doch in den Briefen, die er an einen unbekannten »Freund« schreibt, wird deutlich, dass Charlie eine ganz besondere Sicht auf die Welt hat: Er beobachtet die Menschen um sich herum, fragt sich, ob sie ihr Leben so leben, wie sie es möchten, und versucht verzweifelt, seine eigene Rolle in all dem, was wir Leben nennen, zu begreifen.

#1 New York Times Bestseller At last, a book that shows you how to build—design—a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage Designers create worlds and solve problems using design thinking. Look around your office or home—at the tablet or smartphone you may be holding or the chair you are sitting in. Everything in our lives was designed by someone. And every design starts with a problem that a designer or team of designers seeks to solve. In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise. "Designing Your Life walks readers through the process of building a satisfying, meaningful life by approaching the challenge the way a designer would. Experimentation. Wayfinding. Prototyping. Constant iteration. You should read the book. Everyone else will." —Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive “This [is] the career book of the next decade and . . . the go-to book that is read as a rite of passage whenever someone is ready to create a life they love.” —David Kelley, Founder of IDEO “An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University . . . Perhaps the book’s most important lesson is that the only failure is settling for a life that makes one unhappy. With useful fact-finding exercises, an empathetic tone, and sensible advice, this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics.” —Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition.

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

Was, wenn Götter etwas vollkommen anderes sind, als man gängig annimmt? In Grindelwald stürzt etwas in die Eigernordwand. Seither schießen täglich gewaltigere Sonneneruptionen ins All und verändern das Klima weltweit. Es wird immer heißer. Apollon Holmström ist ein eitler Schönling, der Sport liebt. Als sein Opa ihm zuflüstert, dass Talente in ihm schlummern, die den Tod hinausfordern, wird dem Achtzehnjährigen mulmig. Als dann Opa nur wenige Stunden danach stirbt, ändert sich alles. An der Beerdigung lernt Apollon Martin, seinen schwulen Bodybuilder Cousin kennen, der ihn für die Semesterferien zu sich nach Los Angeles einlädt. Kaum dort verliert Apollon eine Wette. Als Wettschuld trainiert ihn Martin, sich seines Namens bewusst zu werden. Das ist nicht ganz selbstlos, denn Martin leitet die NAWA, die Nudist at Work Agency und will Apollon engagieren. Was peinlich anfängt, wird bald immer suspekter. Täglich begegnet Apollon seltsamen Frauen, die ihn auf offener Straße auffordern für sie zu singen. Bei seinem ersten offiziellen Auftritt als Nudist at Work passen ihm fünf Frauen ab, die sich ihm als Musen vorstellen, was Apollon nur ein schiefes Grinsen entlockt - wären da nicht seine Träume. Markku Moor, den jeder Mercury nennt, ist ein Diebe und Boxer mit Visionen und einer lebhaften Fantasie. Stetig kommt er mit der Polizei in Konflikt, so auch als er mit Andrey die Schule schwänzt. Seine Eltern verdonnern ihn zu Stubenarrest, statt Familienurlaub. Mercury nutzt die Freiheit, um mit Andrey nach Grindelwald abzuhauen, wo er aus einem versteckten Streitwagen ein goldiges Signet klaut. Weil die neue Hofbesitzerin am nächsten Tag eintrifft, müssen die Jungs raus. Kaum zuhause, träumt Mercury von Miami und trifft dort den alten Hermes, der ihn auffordert seinen Hintern hierher zu bewegen. Ein Simon werde ihm helfen. Er findet ihn. Simon leitet die Zweigstelle der NAWA in Florida. Heimlich und ohne Geld türmt Mercury nach Miami Beach. Kaum am Ziel, bedrängt ihn Hermes den jungen Sonnengott Apollon zu suchen, um mit ihm zur Insel des Helios zu reisen. Aber Mercury denkt nicht dran. Er hat andere Pläne, er will endlich Sex erleben. Seine Frechheit bringt ihn stetig in Schwierigkeiten. Hermes Auftrag nimmt er erst ernst, als Göttermächte in Aussicht stehen.
