8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 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 )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and German and held by 820 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 )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and German and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revelatory tour de force by an acclaimed and internationally bestselling science writer upends our understanding of ?survival of the fittest????±???and invites us all to think and act more altruistically. The phrase ?survival of the fittest? conjures an image of the most cutthroat individuals rising to the top. But Stefan Klein, author of the #1 international bestseller The Science of Happiness and winner of the Georg von Holtzbrinck Prize for Scientific Journalism, makes the startling assertion that the key to achieving lasting personal and societal success lies in helping others. In fact, Klein argues, altruism is our defining characteristic: Natural selection favored those early humans who cooperated in groups, and with survival more assured, our altruistic ancestors were free to devote brainpower to developing intelligence, language, and culture{u2014}our very humanity. As Klein puts it, ?We humans became first the friendliest and then the most intelligent apes.?

Da Vincis Vermächtnis oder Wie Leonardo die Welt neu erfand by Stefan Klein( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 58 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)
