Esistono due tipi di intelligenza: una più intuitiva e globale, l’altra più analitica e sequenziale. Roger W. Sperry (Nobel per la medicina nel 1981) ha localizzato nei due emisferi cerebrali l’origine dei due diversi tipi di funzionamento mentale, che in genere coesistono nella stessa persona, ma con prevalenza dell'uno sull'altro. Se avete l’impressione che qualcosa in voi non funzioni (per esempio: faticate ad avere opinioni nette? vi sentite inadeguati quando dovete organizzare qualcosa o fare piani dettagliati? spesso vi annoiate con gli altri? pensate di essere distratti e dispersivi?), ma contemporaneamente sentite di avere grandi capacità (per esempio: sapete cogliere simultaneamente più aspetti della stessa situazione? percepite anche i più piccoli dettagli? arrivate molto più rapidamente degli altri alle conclusioni giuste, anche se non sapete ricostruire il ragionamento che vi ci ha condotti? quando siete motivati, spostate le montagne?), allora appartenete alla categoria di persone che usano prevalentemente l’emisfero destro. Questa guida vi aiuterà a recuperare fiducia in voi stessi, trarre il meglio dalle vostre potenzialità e imparare a interagire proficuamente con gli altri, spiegandovi come funziona la vostra intelligenza globale e intuitiva.

A Late Divorce
Author: A. B. Yehoshua
A novel of a Jewish family coming together, and coming apart, by an award-winning “master storyteller” (The Wall Street Journal). “Anyone who has had experience of the sad and subtle ways in which human beings torment one another under license of family ties will appreciate the merits of A.B. Yehoshua’s A Late Divorce.” —London Review of Books A powerful story about a family—and a country —in crisis. The father of three grown children comes back to Israel to get a divorce from his wife of many years; another woman, newly pregnant, awaits him in America. Narrated in turn by each family member—husband and wife, sons and daughter, young grandson—the drama builds to a crescendo at the traditional family gathering on Passover eve. “Each character here is brilliantly realized. . . . Thank goodness for a novel that is ambitious and humane and that is about things that really matter” —New Statesman “A master storyteller whose tales reveal the inner life of a vital, conflicted nation.” —The Wall Street Journal
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Publisher: Little, Brown
Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood-facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf-his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting. Marked by Foer's profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told-and the stories we now need to tell.

Author: S. Chandrasekhar
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
"What a splendid book! Reading it is a joy, and for me, at least, continuing reading it became compulsive. . . . Chandrasekhar is a distinguished astrophysicist and every one of the lectures bears the hallmark of all his work: precision, thoroughness, lucidity."—Sir Hermann Bondi, Nature The late S. Chandrasekhar was best known for his discovery of the upper limit to the mass of a white dwarf star, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1983. He was the author of many books, including The Mathematical Theory of Black Holes and, most recently, Newton's Principia for the Common Reader.
What you are today is not important . . . for in this runaway bestseller you will learn how to change your life by applying the secrets you are about to discover in the ancient scrolls. “I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny. I will persist until I succeed.” —From the ancient scroll marked III in The Greatest Salesman in the World Praise for The Greatest Salesman in the World “The Greatest Salesman in the World is one of the most inspiring, uplifting, and motivating books I have ever read. I can well understand why it has had such a splendid acceptance.”—Norman Vincent Peale “At last! A book on sales and salesmanship that can be read and enjoyed by veteran and recruit alike! I have just completed The Greatest Salesman in the World for the second time—it was too good for just one reading—and in all sincerity, I say that it is the most readable, most constructive and most useful instrument for the teaching of sales as a profession that I have ever read.”—F.W. Errigo, Manager, U. S. Sales Trainer at Parke, Davis & Company “I have read almost every book that has ever been written on salesmanship, but I think Og Mandino has captured all of them in The Greatest Salesman in the World. No one who follows these principles will ever fail as a salesman, and no one will ever be truly great without them; but, the author has done more than present the principles—he has woven them into the fabric of one of the most fascinating stories I have ever read.”—Paul J. Meyer, President of Success Motivation Institute, Inc. “Every sales manager should read The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is a book to keep at the bedside, or on the living room table—a book to dip into as needed, to browse in now and then, to enjoy in small stimulating portions. It is a book for the hours and for the years, a book to turn to over and over again, as to a friend, a book of moral, spiritual and ethical guidance, an unfailing source of comfort and inspiration.”—Lester J. Bradshaw, Jr., Former Dean, Dale Carnegie Institute of Effective Speaking & Human Relations “I was overwhelmed by The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is, without doubt, the greatest and the most touching story I have ever read. It is so good that there are two musts that I would attach to it: First, you must not lay it down until you have finished it; and secondly, every individual who sells anything, and that includes us all, must read it.”—Robert B. Hensley, President, Life Insurance Co. of Kentucky “Og Mandino provocatively prods your attention into fascination as he masterfully relates his story. The Greatest Salesman in the World is a book with emotional appeal for millions.”—Roy Garn, Executive Director, Emotional Appeal Institute “There are very few men who have the writing talent with which Og Mandino has been blessed. The thoughts contained in this book symbolize the importance of selling to the entire world’s existence.”—Sol Polk, President, Polk Bros., Inc.
