 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...

 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...

 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...

 The UK's In-Out Referendum: Eu Foreign and Defence Policy Reform David Owen 9781910376539
As David Owen notes in The UK s In-Out Referendum, the European Union s attempts at conflict resolution have left much to be desired. In the Ukraine, Baltic States, Turkey, and much of the Middle East, a lack of coherent policy has dominated. This book argues that the negotiations around the United Kingdom s referendum vote represent an opportunity to enact wide-scale reform, not least to...

 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...
