Summary

A stereotype image of Nara Chandrababu Naidu has been formed in the last 40 years. His story is remarkable at every level. But often questions, which is the important story? The one where he evolves into one of the extraordinary leaders in Indian politics over four decades? Or that of an ordinary man from a farming family who worked his way to the top by keeping his family and political party together? That which reflects his political acumen, intellect, and hardwork? Or the one that unveils the person who introduced Andhra Pradesh to India? This book attempts to show how Naidu has been a quintessential survivor in Indian politics. 
 
This book analyses how Naidu's ability to combine politics and governance has touched every aspect of Indian domestic and foreign policy, from the struggle for social, technological, economic and administrative reforms to creating world-class institutions. It establishes the fact that Naidu, today, is a symbol and an embodiment of many Indias - modern, progressive, rural and cultural.

    This concise book introduces nonphysicists to the core philosophical issues surrounding the nature and structure of space and time, and is also an ideal resource for physicists interested in the conceptual foundations of space-time theory. Tim Maudlin's broad historical overview examines Aristotelian and Newtonian accounts of space and time, and traces how Galileo's conceptions of relativity and space-time led to Einstein's special and general theories of relativity. Maudlin explains special relativity with enough detail to solve concrete physical problems while presenting general relativity in more qualitative terms. Additional topics include the Twins Paradox, the physical aspects of the Lorentz-FitzGerald contraction, the constancy of the speed of light, time travel, the direction of time, and more.

    "The economization of our entire lifespan and the apparent compulsion to constant self-optimization are dead ends into which the dynamics of the market economy have led us. Julian Poerksen asks how we might re-emerge from this state and, drawing on the speculative approaches of Georges Bataille, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, and Friedrich Schiller, recommends an investment in its antithesis: the waste of time and talent without guilt feelings and bad conscience. This is fun to read and leaves you with the exhilarating feeling that you are witnessing a long overdue liberation process." Carl Hegemann

    Renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics Daniel Kahneman shows us how the mind has two systems that drive how we think. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, the first system—System 1—is the fast, intuitive, and emotional system while the second system—System 2—is the slower, more deliberate, and logical system. Kahneman shows the impact of overconfidence in making decisions, the difficulties of predicting happiness in the future, and the profound effect of having cognitive biases. These can be understood based on how the two systems control our judgments and decisions.
     
    Kahneman shows us when our intuitions can be helpful and when it can’t as well as how we can get the benefits of slow thinking. He gives us practical insights into how we make our choices both in business and in our personal lives as well as what techniques we can use in order to protect ourselves against the lapses that can cause us trouble. Given the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is a book that would certainly affect how we think and hows we live our lives.
