☯ Full Synopsis : ""Nous sommes en train de changer le monde, de changer l'histoire, et vous en êtes ou pas." Elon Musk Elon Musk fait partie de ceux qui changent les règles du jeu. Largement considéré comme le plus grand industriel du moment, il porte l'innovation à des niveaux rarement atteints - au point d'avoir servi de modèle pour Tony Stark, alias Iron man. A 46 ans, il a monté en quelques années une entreprise, Tesla, qui révolutionne l'industrie automobile, une autre, SpaceX, qui concurrence Arianespace. Il a auparavant bouleversé le marché des paiements avec PayPal. Son objectif ultime : coloniser Mars. Avec cette édition enrichie, Ashlee Vance nous conduit toujours au plus près d'Elon Musk et de son talent. Il montre toute l'intensité de cet homme, son génie tumultueux, sa folle exigence envers lui-même et ses équipes, depuis son enfance agitée en Afrique du Sud jusqu'à ses incroyables innovations techniques et réussites entrepreneuriales. A travers ce portrait d'un des titans de la Silicon Valley, ce livre met au jour les mutations rapides et inéluctables de nos modèles industriels. Car ce ne sont plus seulement des réseaux sociaux ou des messages en 140 signes qui sont proposés par cette nouvelle économie, mais des voitures, des trains, des fusées. Visionnaire ? Mégalomane ? Elon Musk dessine en tout cas les contours du XXIe siècle. "Un livre indispensable pour comprendre ce qui fait courir l'homme le plus audacieux du monde." Laurent Guez, Les Echos week-end "Un livre intelligent, habile, d'une savoureuse minutie." Dwight Garner, The New York Times"Article| Ashlee Vance| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Taking on the key issues in urban design, Shaping the City examines the critical ideas that have driven these themes and debates through a study of particular cities at important periods in their development. As well as retaining crucial discussions about cities such as Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Brasilia at particular moments in their history that exemplified the problems and themes at hand like the mega-city, the post-colonial city and New Urbanism, in this new edition the editors have introduced new case studies critical to any study of contemporary urbanism – China, Dubai, Tijuana and the wider issues of informal cities in the Global South. The book serves as both a textbook for classes in urban design, planning and theory and is also attractive to the increasing interest in urbanism by scholars in other fields. Shaping the City provides an essential overview of the range and variety of urbanisms and urban issues that are critical to an understanding of contemporary urbanism."Article| Rodolphe El-Khoury, Edwards Robbins| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Wright idea "The interior space itself is the reality of the building." - Frank Lloyd Wright Widely thought to be the greatest American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was a true pioneer, both artistically and technically. At a time when reinforced concrete and steel were considered industrial building materials, Wright boldly made use of them to build private homes. His prairie house concept--that of a low, sprawling home based upon a simple L or T figure--was the driving force behind some of his most famous houses and became a model for rural architecture across America. Wright`s designs for office and public buildings were equally groundbreaking and unique. From Fallingwater to New York`s Guggenheim Museum, his works are among the most famous in the history of architecture. About the Series: Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Architecture Series features: an introduction to the life and work of the architect the major works in chronological order information about the clients, architectural preconditions as well as construction problems and resolutions a list of all the selected works and a map indicating the locations of the best and most famous buildings approximately 120 illustrations (photographs, sketches, drafts and plans)"Article| Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer| Statement ..."

Against the vivid and bloody backdrop of the Siege of Khartoum, in which British General Charles George Gordon is killed and the British retreat, these three powerful men fight to survive.

☯ Full Synopsis : "When the scientists of the wandering planet, journeying through inter-galactic space, heard the sound of hydrogen atoms coming into existence out of nothing, they realized that they had accidentally discovered the birthplace of continuous creation. They had lifted the curtain and caught an instant's glimpse of the unknowable. But to have looked it full in the face could have been no more fatal. For later, much later, they were to learn that they had also uncovered mankind's Day of Judgment . . ."Article| James Blish| Statement ..."
