Summary

Being a freelancer can seem daunting at times. You get to be your own boss, but much of the responsibilities fall solely on your shoulders. This can be difficult for beginners to navigate without any prior experience. 
Ryan Vinson jumped head first into the world of freelancing just as the Internet bubble was bursting in 2000. Companies were all slashing jobs, and it was clear to him that he could no longer rely on a steady office job. 
Many friends and colleagues have often asked him for advice about running a business of their own. After being asked enough times, Ryan started writing down the advice he gave. 
Disregarded Entity is a collection of those lessons, methods, and stories from his 15 years as a self-employed small business owner.

    In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley’s most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs—a real-life Tony Stark—and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new “makers.” 
    Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion. Ashlee Vance captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius’s life and work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits. 
    Vance uses Musk’s story to explore one of the pressing questions of our age: can the nation of inventors and creators who led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk—one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history—is a contemporary, visionary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy. 
    Thorough and insightful, Elon Musk brings to life a technology industry that is rapidly and dramatically changing by examining the life of one of its most powerful and influential titans.

    A search for the contemporary Nikola Tesla — considered a mad scientist by his society for predicting global warming more than 100 years ago — fuels this analysis of climate issues, which introduces thinkers and inventors who are working to find possible ways out of the energy crisis. From Louis Michaud, a retired refinery engineer who claims we can harness the energy of man-made tornadoes, to a professor and a businessman who are running a company that genetically modifies algae so it can secrete ethanol naturally, these individuals and their unorthodox methods are profiled through first-person interviews, exposing the social, economic, financial, and personal barriers that prevent them from making an impact with their ideas. The existing state of green energy technologies, such as solar, wind, biofuels, smart grid, and energy storage, is also explored, creating a sense of hope against a backdrop of climate dread.

    Los temas discutidos en este libro, traducido al inglés por el australiano Kieran Tapsell, forman parte de una disciplina revolucionaria conocida como psicología evolutiva, que se ha convertido en la herramienta más poderosa descubierta por el ser humano para entenderse a sí mismo. Gran parte del conocimiento revelado por la ciencia humana se explica como resultado del proceso evolutivo, tomando como premisa la teoría de que la mayoría de los deseos, impulsos, intereses y facultades mentales humanas fueron diseñadas por la evolución de las especies. Este nuevo enfoque nos permite sintetizar un grupo ya establecido de descubrimientos, que provienen de diversas disciplinas como genética, evolución, antropología, psicología, neurología y epistemología. De esta manera es posible explicar una parte importante del comportamiento humano desde un solo principio unificado: la búsqueda directa o indirecta de una mayor eficacia reproductiva. Con este trabajo, de fácil lectura para el público general, el autor completa un ciclo de temas que comenzó con el libro Del Big Bang al homo sapiens (2004), publicado en español por Villegas Editores.

    Disaster on the Horizon is a behind-the-scenes investigative look at the worst oil well accident in US history, which led to the current environmental and economic catastrophe on the Gulf Coast. Cavnar uses his 30 years in the business to take readers inside the disaster, exposing the decisions leading up to the blowout and the immediate aftermath. It includes personal accounts of the survivors, assembled from testimony during various investigations, as well as personal interviews with survivors, witnesses, and family. It also provides a layman's look at the industry, its technology, people, and risks. It deconstructs events and decisions made by BP, Transocean, and the US Government before and after the disaster, and the effects of those decisions, both good and bad.
    
     
    Cavnar explains what happened in the Gulf, explores how we arrived at deep water drilling in the first place and then charts a course for how to avoid these disasters in the future.
