 Nemocní u moci David Owen 9788074321245
Nad některými rozhodnutími politiků zůstává rozum stát. Kniha Davida Owena odhaluje, že mnohé z těchto kroků vyplývají z nemocí, jimiž politik trpí, anebo souvisí s jevem, který sám autor nazývá syndrom hybris, tedy s jakousi zpupností z povolání.
Podle Owena vede přehnaná sebedůvěra u politika k tomu, že nedbá rad, ztrácí kontakt s realitou, a tím i...

 The First National Bank of Dad: The Best Way to Teach Kids about Money David Owen 9780743204804
Most parents do more harm than good when they try to teach their children about money. They make saving seem like a punishment, and force their children to view reckless spending as their only rational choice. To most kids, a savings account is just a black hole that swallows birthday checks.
David Owen, a New Yorker staff writer and the father of two children, has devised a...

Every parent wants to raise financially responsible children, but often, any efforts to teach kids about money are doomed from the start.

 Dogfight: The Supermarine Spitfire and the Messerschmitt Bf109 David Owen 9781473828063
Innumerable books have been published on the two most famous fighter aircraft of all time, the Supermarine Spitfire and the Messerschmitt Bf109. But books setting out to tell the story of both aircraft are very much rarer - probably fewer than the fingers of one hand. Yet their joint story is one which bears retelling since both were essential to the air campaigns of World War...

 Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along the Colorado River David Owen 9781594633775
An eye-opening account of where our water comes from and where it all goes.

The Colorado River is an essential resource for a surprisingly large part of the United States, and every gallon that flows down it is owned or claimed by someone. David Owen traces all that water from the Colorado's headwaters to its parched terminus, once a verdant wetland but now a million-acre desert. He...

 Hubris Syndrome David Owen 9780413777270
For some politicians and business leaders, power can become an intoxicating drug, and can affect their actions and decision-making in a most serious way. The ancient Greeks called it hubris, and identified arrogance and contempt for others' opinions as classic traits. They also took comfort in the knowledge that the Gods would punish the guilty ones--nemesis. In this revised edition, David Owen...
