Ein rührender Roman, der zeigt, was es bedeutet, wirklich füreinander da zu sein Ben geht’s nicht gut – weder persönlich noch finanziell. Nach einem Crashkurs in »häuslicher Pflege« heuert er bei Trevor an, einem zynischen Jugendlichen, der im Rollstuhl sitzt. Gemeinsam fahren sie mit dem VW-Bus quer durch die USA, um Trevs Vater zu besuchen – eine Reise voller skurriler Abenteuer beginnt. Ben hat einen schrecklichen Schicksalsschlag hinter sich und besitzt keinen Penny mehr, als er die Pflege von Trev übernimmt, der unheilbar krank ist. Sein Vater Bob, ein hoffnungsloser Tollpatsch, sucht gleich nach der Diagnose das Weite, was ihm in der Familie natürlich keiner verzeiht. Doch Ben fühlt mit dem verstoßenen und reuigen Vater und überzeugt Trev, im Auto von Washington State nach Salt Lake City zu fahren, um ihn zu besuchen. Auf dem Weg nehmen sie die Anhalterin Dot mit und kommen an den verrücktesten Sehenswürdigkeiten vorbei. Sie gabeln eine reifenwechselnde Schwangere auf, werden von einem Auto verfolgt, in dem ganz jemand anderes sitzt als vermutet, und lernen schließlich, dass man sich irgendwann seinen Problemen stellen muss. Ein bewegender Roman voller skurriler Situationskomik, der glücklich macht. »Ein kraftvoller Roman, ergreifend und dennoch komisch« New York Times Book Review »Eine bittersüße Reise zurück ins Leben, rührend und lustig zugleich« Washington Post

Kolumbus' Erbe

Wie Menschen, Tiere, Pflanzen die Ozeane überquerten und die Welt von heute schufen

Author: Charles C. Mann

Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH

ISBN: 364403771X

Category: History

Page: 816

View: 1112

«Das beste Sachbuch des Jahres.» TIME Die Entdeckung Amerikas war für das Leben auf unserem Planeten das folgenreichste Ereignis seit dem Aussterben der Dinosaurier. Denn: Millionen Jahre waren die Hemisphären weitgehend voneinander isoliert gewesen. Mit Kolumbus traten sie in einen Austausch. Menschen und Pflanzen, Tiere und Krankheiten gelangten per Schiff in neue Lebensräume und schufen eine Welt, in der nichts blieb, wie es einmal gewesen war. Das hatte auch gravierende politische Konsequenzen: Der «kolumbische Austausch» trug mehr als alles andere dazu bei, dass Europa zur Weltmacht aufstieg und China verdrängte. Charles C. Mann zeichnet ein spannendes Panorama dieser Vorgänge, das Kontinente und Jahrhunderte umfasst. Ein großartiges Lesevergnügen für alle Wissensdurstigen! «Herausragend.» The New York Times «Ein faszinierendes und vielschichtiges Buch, das auf vorbildliche Weise sprechende Fakten mit gutem Geschichtenerzählen vereint.» The Washington Post

Power: Die 48 Gesetze der Macht

Kompaktausgabe

Author: Robert Greene

Publisher: Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH Co KG

ISBN: 3446435530

Category: Political Science

Page: 256

View: 4536

Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.

Jeder kennt sie: Momente, in denen wir denken, ohne zu denken.Wir nennen sie Intuition oder Bauchgefühl.
