"Have you ever fantasized about having more time - now, this minute, to accomplish everything you need and want to get done today?

Leonardo's legacy : how Da Vinci reimagined the world by Stefan Klein( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores the mind of Leonardo Da Vinci and explains the profound impact his ideas have had on our times, discussing his paintings, fascination with water, and dream of flying. Revered today as, perhaps, the greatest of Renaissance painters, Leonardo da Vinci was a scientist at heart. The artist who created the Mona Lisa also designed functioning robots and digital computers, constructed flying machines and built the first heart valve. His intuitive and ingenious approach, a new mode of thinking, linked highly diverse areas of inquiry in startling new ways and ushered in a new era. In this work, the author, a science journalist, deciphers the forgotten legacy of this universal genius and demonstrates that today we have much to learn from Leonardo's way of thinking. The author sheds light on the mystery behind Leonardo's paintings, takes us through the many facets of his fascination with water, and explains the true significance of his dream of flying. It is a glimpse into the complex and brilliant mind of this inventor, scientist, and pioneer of a new world view, with profound consequences for our times

Survival of the nicest : how altruism made us human and why it pays to get along by Stefan Klein( Book )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a book certain to change our thinking and our actions, science writer Stefan Klein argues that selfishness is self-defeating and proves the evolutionary advantages of altruism "The future belongs to the altruists, ' Stefan Klein proclaims in this wide-ranging and often surprising exploration of why generosity, and not selfishness, is the means to achieving lasting personal and societal success. A highly readable synthesis of an extraordinary array of material'including current brain research and genetics, economics and social psychology, behavioral and anthropological experiments, history and contemporary culture'Survival of the Nicest clearly establishes just how evolution has hard-wired us to act for one another's benefit. At once serious, entertaining, and grounded in the most up-to-date science, Klein's book helps us to clearly understand how and why caring for and about others protects us from loneliness and depression; makes us happier, healthier, and more successful; and can even extend our lives

Da Vincis Vermächtnis oder Wie Leonardo die Welt neu erfand by Stefan Klein( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leonardo da Vinci war der erste moderne Mensch. Er entwarf funktionsfähige Roboter, digitale Computer und baute die erste Herzklappe. Heute verehren wir Leonardo als Maler, der die Kunst der Renaissance revolutionierte. Doch seine Zeitgenossen lobten und umwarben den Forscher in ihm, der mit seinen bahnbrechenden Entdeckungen ein neues Zeitalter einläutete und ein neues Denken erfand. Denn er verknüpfte unterschiedlichste Wissensgebiete auf nie da gewesene Weise: intuitiv, kreativ und frei von allen Tabus. Stefan Klein entschlüsselt das vergessene Vermächtnis des Universalgenies und zeigt uns, wie wir heute mehr denn je von seiner Art zu Denken lernen können. Er lüftet das Geheimnis der Mona Lisa, ergründet Leonardos Faszination für Wasser und erklärt die wahre Bedeutung seines Traums vom Fliegen. Stefan Klein erzählt von einem Mann, in dem wir uns selbst wieder finden, von der Sehnsucht nach Erkenntnis und der Melancholie des Ungenügens. (Verlagstext)

Vergessen Sie alles, was Sie über Träume zu wissen meinten! Träume sind der verborgene Teil unseres Selbst.
