"Have you ever fantasized about having more time - now, this minute, to accomplish everything you need and want to get done today? Or wondered why time flies when you are thoroughly engrossed in something? Or why minutes pass so slowly when you're standing in line at the store or airport, or on hold waiting for a customer service rep to answer your call? Or how, simply, to find more time to relax and unwind?" From the bookjacket
Leonardo's legacy : how Da Vinci reimagined the world by Stefan Klein( Book )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 878 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

13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and German and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phrase 'survival of the fittest' conjures an image of the most cutthroat individuals rising to the top. But Stefan Klein, author of the international bestseller The Science of Happiness, makes the startling assertion that the key to achieving lasting personal and societal success lies in helping others. Klein argues that altruism is in fact our defining characteristic: natural selection favoured those early humans who cooperated in groups. With their survival more assured, our altruistic ancestors were free to devote brainpower to developing intelligence, language, a

Interorganisationssysteme und Unternehmensnetzwerke : Wechselwirkungen zwischen organisatorischer und informationstechnischer Entwicklung by Stefan Klein( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in German and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gegenwiirtig findet einerseits ein an Tempo rasch gewinnender, oft dramatischer Umbau von Unternehmen und ganzen Wirtschaftszweigen statt. Beispiele wie ABB oder IBM, Entwicklungen im Automobil-, Banken- oder Versicherungsbereich bieten reiches empirisches Belegmaterial. Auf der anderen Seite hat der Aufbau einer globa len neuen Telematikinfrastruktur in den letzten Jahren neue Grossenordnungen er reicht. Schlagworte wie Internet oder Information Superhighway haben dies einer breiten Offentlichkeit zum Bewusstsein gebracht. Die erste Entwicklung ist wesentlich mit der Herausbildung bzw. mit der zunehmen den Bedeutung von Unternehmensnetzwerken verbunden. Dabei sind die verschie densten Formen von Netzwerken anzutreffen - von hierarchisch organisierten Liefer verbunden, wie etwa in der Automobilindustrie, bis zu offenen, marktmassig organi sierten Netzen, wie beispielsweise im Bereich der Textilindustrie. Die zweite Entwicklung ist im informationstechnischen Bereich eng mit den Interorganisa tionssystemen (IDS) verbunden. Diese beiden Entwicklungen sind nicht unabhiingig voneinander. Ohne die Frage nach dem Primat der einen oder anderen Entwicklung aufzuwerfen oder gar zu beantwor ten, kann festgehalten werden, dass sie einander bedingen: Die heutige Form der Un ternehmensnetzwerke ware ohne die in ihnen Verwendung findenden Interorganisati onssysteme nicht funktionsfahig. Die sich in den Unternehmensnetzwerken stellenden Aufgaben des Informationsaustauschs treiben ihrerseits die Entwicklung neuer Formen von IDS voran - zur Zeit namentlich im Bereich offener Systeme
