Instant New York Times Bestseller “Unimpeachably terrific.” —The New York Times Book Review One of CBS This Morning’s 6 “Must-Have Titles for Your Summer Reading List” The publishing phenomenon topping bestseller lists around the world, with sales of more than two million copies in Europe and rights sold in more than forty countries, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair is a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller, and an ingenious book within a book, by a dazzling young writer. August 30, 1975: the day fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan is glimpsed fleeing through the woods, never to be heard from again; the day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence. Thirty-three years later, Marcus Goldman, a successful young novelist, visits Somerset to see his mentor, Harry Quebert, one of the country’s most respected writers, and to find a cure for his writer’s block as his publisher’s deadline looms. But Marcus’s plans are violently upended when Harry is suddenly and sensationally implicated in the cold-case murder of Nola Kellergan—whom, he admits, he had an affair with. As the national media convicts Harry, Marcus launches his own investigation, following a trail of clues through his mentor’s books, the backwoods and isolated beaches of New Hampshire, and the hidden history of Somerset’s citizens and the man they hold most dear. To save Harry, his own writing career, and eventually even himself, Marcus must answer three questions, all of which are mysteriously connected: Who killed Nola Kellergan? What happened one misty morning in Somerset in the summer of 1975? And how do you write a book to save someone’s life? From the Trade Paperback edition.

John Stuart Mill opens his essay by discussing the historical "struggle between authority and liberty," describing the tyranny of government, which, in his view, needs to be controlled by the liberty of the citizens. He divides this control of authority into two mechanisms: necessary rights belonging to citizens, and the "establishment of constitutional checks by which the consent of the community, or of a body of some sort, supposed to represent its interests, was made a necessary condition to some of the more important acts of the governing power." L’ouvrage porte sur la conciliation de notre liberté avec la nécessaire autorité de l’État pourtant « extrêmement dangereuse ». Par le passé, les hommes se contentaient de combattre un ennemi par un autre, c'est-à-dire de se laisser diriger à condition d’être plus ou moins garantis contre la tyrannie. Puis les hommes prirent conscience de la situation et commencèrent à vouloir un pouvoir indépendant, révocable.

The Meditations is divided into 12 books that chronicle different periods of Marcus' life. Each book is not in chronological order and it was written for no one but himself. The style of writing that permeates the text is one that is simplified, straightforward, and perhaps reflecting Marcus' Stoic perspective on the text. Depending on the English translation, Marcus' style is not viewed as anything regal or belonging to royalty, but rather a man among other men, which allows the reader to relate to his wisdom. Rédigées dans un style simple et froid, les Pensées sont une suite d'épigrammes et de courtes réflexions portant sur le devoir, la mort et la conduite du sage face aux erreurs et à la méchanceté des Hommes. Marc Aurèle, lui-même philosophe stoïcien développe la tradition d'Épictète selon laquelle tout Homme a le profond devoir de ne pas s'inquiéter de ce qui ne dépend pas de lui, c'est-à-dire les biens matériels, les honneurs, l'opinion des gens, mais doit en contrepartie se rendre parfaitement maître de ses émotions, avis, opinions et jugements, la seule chose dont il possède une parfaite maîtrise.

The plot of Gobseck, set during the French Restoration, concerns Anastasie de Restaud, née Goriot. Anastasie de Restaud is the daughter of a rich bourgeois who has married into the aristocracy, but is bored by her marriage, which is loveless and passionless. Anastasie de Restaud has an affair with Maxime de Trailles, and spends her fortune on de Trailles.She turns to the usurer Jean-Esther van Gobseck for financial assistance. Maître Derville acts as Gobseck’s lawyer. Subsequently both Anastasie's marriage is destroyed and her family fortune is lost.La scène débute dans le salon de Madame de Grandlieu, en conversation avec un ami de la famille, l’avoué Maître Derville. L'avoué entend, pendant la conversation de Mme de Grandlieu avec sa fille Camille, que celle-ci est amoureuse du jeune Ernest de Restaud, fils d'Anastasie de Restaud, née Goriot. Mme de Grandlieu désapprouve cet amour : la mère d’Ernest est dépensière, enlisée dans une relation illégitime avec Maxime de Trailles, pour lequel elle gaspille sa fortune. Derville intervient en faveur de Camille : il démontre qu’Ernest s’est vu attribuer depuis peu l’intégralité de l’héritage familial. Ce récit, qui constitue une mise en abîme d’un type humain du monde balzacien, met en lumière les personnages de Jean-Esther van Gobseck, usurier, et de Maître Derville, avocat en début de carrière.

Prince Lev Nikolayevich Myshkin, a young man in his mid-twenties and a descendant of one of the oldest Russian lines of nobility, is on a train to Saint Petersburg on a cold November morning. He is returning to Russia having spent the past four years in a Swiss clinic for treatment of a severe epileptic condition. On the journey, Myshkin meets a young man of the merchant class, Parfyon Semyonovich Rogozhin, and is struck by his passionate intensity, particularly about a woman—the dazzling society beauty Nastassya Filippovna—with whom he is obsessed. Le prince Mychkine est un être fondamentalement bon, mais sa bonté confine à la naïveté et à l'idiotie, même s'il est capable d'analyses psychologiques très fines. Après avoir passé sa jeunesse en Suisse dans un sanatorium pour soigner son épilepsie, il retourne en Russie pour pénétrer les cercles fermés de la société russe, sans sou ni attache, mais avec son titre de noblesse et un certificat de recommandation en poche.

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

A riveting account of how the public's right to know is being attacked by an unholy alliance among politicians, news organizations and corporate America For twenty five years, Mary Mapes has been an award-winning television producer and reporter -- the last fifteen of them for CBS News, principally for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and 60 Minutes. She had the bedrock of respect of her peers -- in 2003 alone, she broke the story of the Abu Ghraib prison tortures (which won CBS The Peabody Award) and the existence of Strom Thurmond's illegitimate bi-racial daughter Essie Mae Washington. But it was Dan Rather's lightning rod of a story on George W. Bush's National Guard Service that brought Mapes into an unwanted limelight. The firestorm that followed the broadcast led not only to Mapes' firing and Rather's stepping down from his anchor chair a year early, but to an unprecedented "internal" inquiry into the story -- chaired by former Reagan Attorney General Richard Thornburgh. Peopled with an historic and colorful cast of characters—from Karl Rove to Summer Redstone to John Kerry to Col. Bobby Hodges -- this groundbreaking book about how the television news is made (and unmade) made headlines itself when first published. But this, it turns out, is only part of the story. Mapes talks for the first time about the riveting behind-the-scenes action at CBS during this frenzied period and exposes some of the largest political and social controversies that have broken in this new age of dissonance. Truth and Duty was made into the 2015 film Truth, starring Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford, Topher Grace and Elizabeth Moss.

According to ancient Japanese protocol, foreigners deigning to approach the emperor did so only with fear and trembling. Terror and self-abasement conveyed respect. Amélie, our well-intentioned and eager young Western heroine, goes to Japan to spend a year working at the Yumimoto Corporation. Returning to the land where she was born is the fulfillment of a dream for Amélie; working there turns into comic nightmare. Alternately disturbing and hilarious, unbelievable and shatteringly convincing, Fear and Trembling will keep readers clutching tight to the pages of this taut little novel, caught up in the throes of fear, trembling, and, ultimately, delight.
