Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.

From the New York Times–bestselling author of Where Good Ideas Come From and Unexpected Life, a new look at the power and legacy of great ideas. In this illustrated history, Steven Johnson explores the history of innovation over centuries, tracing facets of modern life (refrigeration, clocks, and eyeglass lenses, to name a few) from their creation by hobbyists, amateurs, and entrepreneurs to their unintended historical consequences. Filled with surprising stories of accidental genius and brilliant mistakes—from the French publisher who invented the phonograph before Edison but forgot to include playback, to the Hollywood movie star who helped invent the technology behind Wi-Fi and Bluetooth—How We Got to Now investigates the secret history behind the everyday objects of contemporary life. In his trademark style, Johnson examines unexpected connections between seemingly unrelated fields: how the invention of air-conditioning enabled the largest migration of human beings in the history of the species—to cities such as Dubai or Phoenix, which would otherwise be virtually uninhabitable; how pendulum clocks helped trigger the industrial revolution; and how clean water made it possible to manufacture computer chips. Accompanied by a major six-part television series on PBS, How We Got to Now is the story of collaborative networks building the modern world, written in the provocative, informative, and engaging style that has earned Johnson fans around the globe.

This book provides guidance to readers for how to conduct an integrative review. Over the decades, with the expansion of evidence-based practice (EBP), the evolution of methods used in reviews has resulted in a wide spectrum of review types. Due to the overlapping characteristics of the various review methods, confusion exists related to terminology, descriptions and methods of each type. To fill this gap, this book examines components necessary to conduct a rigorous integrative review from formulating questions through dissemination of the results of the review. Each chapter focuses on one component or step in this process and is written in a straightforward and readable manner. An integrative review is considered by many as an actual research study, hence it should be approached following established research methods involving well‐defined steps. The integrative review is often compared with the systematic review. Both are used in healthcare research and follow a systematic process in reviewing literature and developing recommendations, but there are important differences that are addressed in the book. Evidence-based practice (EBP) demands high quality, rigorous evidence for nurse clinicians to make informed decisions with and for their patients. In nursing education, the integrative review is a frequent capstone project for graduate students and forms the basis for many doctoral projects. The Integrative review process should be valid, reliable and transparent and this book provides clear guidelines for writing an integrative review for students, educators, clinicians, and researchers. This book is a useful addition to courses for both undergraduate and graduate level writers of integrative reviews. In academia, a likely adoption would be in graduate research and research methods courses, and baccalaureate honor courses.

Part tell-all, part cautionary tale, this emotionally charged memoir from a former video vixen nicknamed 'Superhead' goes beyond the glamour of celebrity to reveal the inner workings of the hip-hop dancer industry—from the physical and emotional abuse that's rampant in the industry, and which marked her own life—to the excessive use of drugs, sex and bling. Once the sought-after video girl, this sexy siren has helped multi-platinum artists, such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly and LL Cool J, sell millions of albums with her sensual dancing. In a word, Karrine was H-O-T. So hot that she made as much as $2500 a day in videos and was selected by well-known film director F. Gary Gray to co-star in his film, A Man Apart, starring Vin Diesel. But the film and music video sets, swanky Hollywood and New York restaurants and trysts with the celebrities featured in the pages of People and In Touch magazines only touches the surface of Karrine Steffans' life. Her journey is filled with physical abuse, rape, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and single motherhood—all by the age of 26. By sharing her story, Steffans hopes to shed light on an otherwise romanticised industry and help young women avoid the same pitfalls she encountered. If they're already in danger, she hopes to inspire them to find a way to dig themselves out of what she knows first-hand to be a cycle of hopelessness and despair.

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene | Summary & Analysis Preview: The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene is a self-help book offering advice on how to gain and maintain power, using lessons drawn from parables and the experiences of historical figures.

They must practice selective honesty, misdirection, and an excess of secrecy to gain a tactical advantage. Timing is central to maintaining power, as is the ability to adapt. The array of strategies available when seeking power include mirroring the opponent’s actions and controlling the opponent’s options for action. The powerful must also cultivate a relationship with audiences by creating spectacles and feeding their need to believe in the impossible.

إلى أولئك الباحثين عن القوة، أو الذين يرقبون القوة، أو الذين يبتغون ما يحصنهم من غائلة القوة.. البعض يعبث بالقوة ويخسرها في غلطة قاتلة. ويعضهم يغلو أو يُقَصِّر فيها. وهناك آخرون يعدُّون العدَّة كاملة فيستطيعون أخذ القوة إلى جانبهم ببراعة خارقة لطبائع البَشَر. فعلى مَرِّ الدُّهور تساءل العلماء والفلاسفة:ما هي الدروس التي ينبغي لنا أن نتعلمها من نجاح أسلافنا ومن إخفاقاتهم؟ على الرغم من أن كتابات متنوعة كتبت عن القوة على مدى أكثر من ثلاثة آلاف سنة، هناك عوامل تشبكها جميعاً في موضوعات متكررة، إنها تلك الأفكار التي تُلَمِّح إلى جوهر القوة وتلوح إلى خصائص مُعَدِّلة لزيادتها ونقصانها. 1- لا تُشْرِقْ أبداً أكثر من السيد. 2- لا تضع ثقةً أكثر من اللازم في الأصدقاء وتعلَّم كيف تستخدم الأعداء. 3- اخْفِ نواياك. 4- قل دائماً أقلَّ مما هو ضروري. 5- يتوقف الكثير على سمعتك، فحافظ عليها بحياتك. 6- اكسب لفت الأنظار بكل ثمن. 7- اجعل الآخرين يقومون بالعمل نيابة عنك ولكن احصل على الفضل دائماً. 8- اجعل الآخرين يأتون إليك، واستعمل طعماً عند الضرورة. 9- اكسب من خلال أعمالك وليس من خلال النقاش أبداً. 10- العدوى: -تجنب التعيس وسيئ الحظ. 11- تعلم أن تبقي الناس معتمدين عليك. 12- استخدم الصدق والكرم بطريقة انتقائية لنزع سلاح ضحيتك. 13-عندما تطلب المساعدة، خاطب في الناس مصالحهم الذاتية وليس رحمتهم أو عرفانهم. 14-اتخذ وضع الصديق واعمل كجاسوس. 15- اسحق عدوك سحقاً كلياً. 16- استخدم الغياب لزيادة الاحترام والتكريم. 17-ابقِ الآخرين في رعب مقيم: -كرِّس جواً من استحالة التنبؤ بحركاتك. 18-لا تَبْنِ قلاعاً لحماية نفسك، فالعزلة خطرة. 19-اعرف مع من تتعامل، لا تُغْضِب الشخص غير المقصود. 20-لا تلتزم بأحد. 21-العب دور المغفل لتمسك بمغفل، أظْهرْ أنَّك أبلد من هدفك. 22- استخدم تكتيك الاستسلام: -حوّل الضعف إلى قوة. 23-ركِّز قواك. 24-العب دور رجل الحاشية الأمثل. 25-أَعِدْ تَشْكيلَ نفسك. 26-اخْفِ أخطاءك واحتفظ بكبش فداء قريب ليتلقى اللوم. 27-استغل حاجة الناس إلى الإيمان لخَلْق أتباع طقوسيين. 28-ادخل معمعة العمل بجرأة. 29-خطّط طوال الطريق حتى النهاية. 30- اجعل منجزاتك تبدو بلا جهد. 31- تحكّم بالخيارات واجعل الآخرين يلعبون بالأوراق التي توزعها. 32- داعب خيالات الناس. 33- اكتشف أداة الضغط على كل شخص. 34-كن ملكياً بطريقتك الخاصة: -تصرَّف كملك لتُعامَل كملك. 35-اتقن فنّ التوقيت. 36-احتقر الأشياء التي لا تستطيع امتلاكها: -فتَجَاهُلُها أفضل انتقام. 37-اخلق مشاهد آسرة. 38- فكِّر كما تحب، ولكن تصرَّف كالآخرين. 39-عَكّر المياه لتصطاد السمك. 40-احتقر الغداء المجاني. 41-تجنَّب الحلول محل رجل عظيم. 42-اضرب الراعي... -تتفرق الغنم. 43-حاول التأثير على قلوب الآخرين وعقولهم. 44- انزع السلاح وحرِّك الحِنْق بتأثير المرآة. 45-بشِّر بالحاجة إلى التغيير ولكن إياك أن تُصْلِحَ أكثر من اللازم دفعة واحدة. 46-لا تظهر كاملاً أكثر مما ينبغي. 47-لا تتجاوز العلامة التي استهدفتَها، وفي النصر اعْرفْ متى تتوقف. 48-اتَّخِذْ هَيئة لا شَكْلَ لها. العبيكان 2016
