☯ Full Synopsis : "“It’s one of the best books on politics of any kind I’ve read. For entertainment value, I put it up there with Catch 22.” —The Financial Times “It transports you to a parallel universe in which everything in the National Enquirer is true….More interesting is what we learn about the candidates themselves: their frailties, egos and almost super-human stamina.” —The Financial Times “I can’t put down this book!” —Stephen Colbert Game Change is the New York Times bestselling story of the 2008 presidential election, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, two of the best political reporters in the country. In the spirit of Richard Ben Cramer’s What It Takes and Theodore H. White’s The Making of the President 1960, this classic campaign trail book tells the defining story of a new era in American politics, going deeper behind the scenes of the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin campaigns than any other account of the historic 2008 election."Article| John Heilemann| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Shortlisted for the BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction A Globe and Mail Best Book From the bestselling author and Hall of Famer Ken Dryden, this is the story of NHLer Steve Montador—who was diagnosed with CTE after his death in 2015—the remarkable evolution of hockey itself, and a passionate prescriptive to counter its greatest risk in the future: head injuries. Ken Dryden’s The Game is acknowledged as the best book about hockey, and one of the best books about sports ever written. Then came Home Game (with Roy MacGregor), also a major TV-series, in which he explored hockey’s significance and what it means to Canada and Canadians. Now, in his most powerful and important book yet, Game Change, Ken Dryden tells the riveting story of one player’s life, examines the intersection between science and sport, and expertly documents the progression of the game of hockey—where it began, how it got to where it is, where it can go from here and, just as exciting to play and watch, how it can get there."Article| Ken Dryden| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Race of a Lifetime
☯ Full Synopsis : "Forget everything you think you know about the making of the most powerful man on the planet. President Barack Obama's triumph was not inevitable: it was the end product of a brilliant, calculated, convention-defying political campaign. In a race that will be talked about for years to come, he faced down his rivals with ruthless focus and efficiency. Race of a Lifetime is the gripping inside story of those thrilling months: from the meteoric rise of Obama and the collapsing House of Clinton to the erratic John McCain and the bewildering Sarah Palin. Brimming with exclusive revelations, this compulsively readable book lays bare the characters of the candidates, warts and all; exposes the inner workings of their operations; and charts the true path to the White House. It's a tour de force: the sometimes shocking, often funny, and ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime."Article| John Heilemann| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Global Game Change
☯ Full Synopsis : "The global authority of the West is no longer unchallenged; the Western worldview is no longer accepted as universal. It is increasingly being questioned by emerging economies around the globe that are developing their own standards. If we look at the geographical positions of the emerging economies, it appears that they collectively form a belt around the southern part of the globe: “The Global Southern Belt.” The Westerncentric world is fading into a multicentered world in which many countries and even more important, “a world of cities” will set the tone in global matters. The game changers will be the countries and cities of the Global Southern Belt, which will reshape our world in the decades to come. Like John Naisbitt’s international bestselling book Megatrends in 1982, Global Game Change offers an indispensable roadmap of the transforming global landscape. It replaces the uncertainty of rapid change with a description of the future."Article| John Naisbitt| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Game Changers
☯ Full Synopsis : "The bestselling author of Head Strong and The Bulletproof Diet answers the question "How do I kick more ass?"--providing proven techniques for becoming happier, healthier, and smarter, culled from the wisdom and insight of world-class thought leaders and mavericks of science and business. When Dave Asprey started his Bulletproof Radio podcast more than five years ago, he sought out thought leaders and influencers in an array of disciplines, from biochemists to business titans to mediation masters. These folks were some of the top performing humans in the world, people who had changed their areas of study or even pioneered entirely new fields. Dave wanted to know: What did they have in common? What mattered most to them? What makes them so successful at what they do--and what makes them happiest? And so, at the end of each interview, Dave began asking the same question: "What are your top three recommendations for people who want to kick more ass?"Combing through the recordings, looking for patterns and common threads, he found that the wisdom gleaned from these highly successful people can be distilled into three main categories: body, mind, and spirit. Game Changers is the culmination of Dave's years-long statistical analysis of these conversations, offering thirty-six science-backed, high performance "laws" that are a virtual playbook for how to become not only more successful, but also happier and healthier.Each chapter of Game Changers is structured around one of these laws. Dave combines anecdotes from game changers like Daniel Amen, David Perlmutter, Arianna Huffington, Dan Harris, and Tim Ferris with his own research and practical advice that readers can put into action immediately. From practising gratitude and mindfulness to prioritising social connections and sex, taming fear and anxiety to optimising nutrition and movement, Dave brings together the wisdom of today's game-changers to help everyone optimise their lives."Article| Dave Asprey| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Cuando los investigadores comenzaron a explorar el grado de inmersión e interés tan grande de la gente en los videojuegos, se quedaron perplejos. ¿Cómo es que la gente pone más esfuerzo en estos juegos que en su trabajo diario y en sus relaciones personales? ¿Por qué cuando juegan están contentos de trabajar tan duro durante tanto tiempo sin recibir un sueldo por ello? ¿Cómo están estos jugadores, tras haber malgastado su juventud encerrados en su cuarto conectados de manera diferente? ¿Estamos presenciando un cambio significativo en la evolución de la psicología humana? Las ideas que emergen de esta investigación tienen repercusiones muy grandes, no solo para el mundo del trabajo, sino también para una incipiente “economía de participación”. Y la “Gamificación”– la aplicación de nociones de mecánicas de juego muy atractivas, programas de fidelización y economía del comportamiento para impulsar la participación del usuario – son la esencia de este tema. A medida que construyamos una nueva economía digital, será casi inevitable que todos tengamos cada vez más tiempo libre – y las plataformas “gamificadas” nos ayudarán a utilizar ese tiempo de manera beneficiosa. GAME CHANGE explora algunas de las iniciativas más revolucionarias que hemos visto en este campo. Desglosa los mecanismos persuasivos del juego y ofrece ideas sobre cómo poner la teoría en práctica. ASÍ QUE, JUGUEMOS. Es hora de seleccionar un avatar y algunos poderes especiales. El viaje a través de este mundo desafiante comienza en la primera página."Article| Craig Atkinson| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Operation Game Change
☯ Full Synopsis : "Author Akinola Ajani brings the life shattering consequences of terrorism to life in Operation Game Change through the harrowing account of the activities of a newly created counter-terrorism agency. Set in the fictional country Area N, the faith of the citizens in the ability of their president has dwindled considerably, especially because he seems unable to stop the attacks perpetuated by the terrorist cell, GRIMA VUNA. The president enlists the help of a highly regarded former head of state to combat terrorism. The story is narrated from the first person point of view by Davidson Anderson, one of the special agents in a handpicked squad faced with the herculean task of protecting their country in its hour of maximum danger. Led by Commander Gatman Shizzle, they go through intensive military training sessions; enter a labyrinth of leads, rescue missions and covert operations in a bid to rid society of the terrorists. Operation Game Change is a novel that reflects a thorn in the flesh of society and the unhealthy state of any country whose military has been compromised. It is a thriller that almost bursts with action."Article| Akinola Ajani| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Double Down
☯ Full Synopsis : "Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times: "Those hungry for political news will read Double Down for the scooplets and insidery glimpses it serves up about the two campaigns, and the clues it offers about the positioning already going on among Republicans and Democrats for 2016 ... The book testifies to its authors’ energetic legwork and insider access... creating a novelistic narrative that provides a you-are-there immediacy... They succeed in taking readers interested in the backstabbing and backstage maneuvering of the 2012 campaign behind the curtains, providing a tactile... sense of what it looked like from the inside." In their runaway bestseller Game Change, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann captured the full drama of Barack Obama’s improbable, dazzling victory over the Clintons, John McCain, and Sarah Palin. With the same masterly reporting, unparalleled access, and narrative skill, Double Down picks up the story in the Oval Office, where the president is beset by crises both inherited and unforeseen—facing defiance from his political foes, disenchantment from the voters, disdain from the nation’s powerful money machers, and dysfunction within the West Wing. As 2012 looms, leaders of the Republican Party, salivating over Obama’s political fragility, see a chance to wrest back control of the White House—and the country. So how did the Republicans screw it up? How did Obama survive the onslaught of super PACs and defy the predictions of a one-term presidency? Double Down follows the gaudy carnival of GOP contenders—ambitious and flawed, famous and infamous, charismatic and cartoonish—as Mitt Romney, the straitlaced, can-do, gaffe-prone multimillionaire from Massachusetts, scraped and scratched his way to the nomination. Double Down exposes blunders, scuffles, and machinations far beyond the klieg lights of the campaign trail: Obama storming out of a White House meeting with his high command after accusing them of betrayal. Romney’s mind-set as he made his controversial “47 percent” comments. The real reasons New Jersey governor Chris Christie was never going to be Mitt’s running mate. The intervention held by the president’s staff to rescue their boss from political self-destruction. The way the tense détente between Obama and Bill Clinton morphed into political gold. And the answer to one of the campaign’s great mysteries—how did Clint Eastwood end up performing Dada dinner theater at the Republican convention? In Double Down, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann take the reader into back rooms and closed-door meetings, laying bare the secret history of the 2012 campaign for a panoramic account of an election that was as hard fought as it was lastingly consequential."Article| Mark Halperin| Statement ..."
