Livro | New York Then and Now | Marcia Reiss

Na última viagem a NY em um dos dias na Borders não consegui deixar a fantástica edição de New Yor Then and Now na prateleira, comprei no ato. A obra de Marcia Reiss é uma coletânea dos principais pontos da cidade, comparando fotos do passado com imagens do presente, sensacional. O texto é muito bom e trás curiosidades dos locais mais famosos da Big Apple.

Description

In just the few years since the first edition of New York Then and Now,the city has undergone important changes. The most dramatic was the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Since the loss of the twin towers, the island of Manhattan has continued to transform itself, with the renewal of entire neighborhoods, from industrial complexes to residential centers. This newly updated edition highlights the development of the New York s lavish hotels, palatial department stores, skyscrapers, and condominiums, featuring historic photographs side-by-side with images of the modern cityscape

From the Publisher:

Since New Amsterdam became New York in 1664, constant change and development has been its driving force. Today, it is America’s densest urban environment and most vital city, boasting one of the most recognizable skylines in the world. New York Then & Now places today’s post 9/11 cityscape within the context of history, reflecting the changing and enduring aspects of life in the Big Apple. Remarkable past-and-present photographs showcase Manhattan’s development and the amazing architecture that defines the city. See side-by-side images of the lavish Waldorf-Astoria, Radio City Music Hall, Union Square, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Penn Station, Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building. The Twin Towers, part of the World Trade Center, redefined the Manhattan skyline when they opened in 1976. After the tragedies of 9/11, the skyline is defined as much by their absence. New York continues to be one of the most popular destinations in the world-everyone who has experienced the energy and magic of the Big Apple will want this compact edition of New York Then & Now. It’s the perfect souvenir or gift!

Livro | The Power of Less | Leo Babauta

Este é o terceiro livro que leio no iPad. Estou muito familiarizado com o equipamento e o processo de escolher, comprar, baixar e começar a ler em apenas 2 minutos. Fácil, rápido e mais barato que o papel. A leitura desta obra em especial foi muito prazeirosa, conteúdo muito interessante com excelente fluidez mesmo no inglês. A idéia do autor é simples, reduzir agenda eliminando tarefas sem valor mas que consomem tempo e concentrar as energias em projetos mais importantes.

Tudo parece muito simplista, mas na minha opinião é uma forma de levar a vida. Tem muita gente que não sabe ao certo que realmente quer da vida, faça o teste com as pessoas que você conhece e pergunte, qual é o seu plano de vida? Quais são suas 3 principais metas para os próximos 5 anos? Não se impressione se as respostas consistentes forem menos de 15% do total.

Recomendo a leitura deste livro muito interessante do Leo Babauta, ele também é criador do blog http://www.zenhabits.net, abaixo seguem informações em inglês sobre o autor:

Zen Habits was created by Leo Babauta, a blogger, journalist and published author from Guam, USA. His first post was on February 1, 2007. In February 2009, Time Magazine named Zen Habits one of the Top 25 Blogs for 2009, and in June 2010, it named Zen Habits at the top of its list for the Top 25 Blogs for 2010.

Babauta also has a blog for writers and bloggers called Write To Done and a blog focused on simplicity called mnmlist.com. He brought attention to The 100 Things Challenge, which is a powerful method of working toward Simple living. The challenge is to reduce personal possessions to 100 items or fewer. There is some wiggle room because collections such as books may be counted as a single list item. Babauta subsequently set the 50 Things Challenge.

On November 6, 2007, an e-book called Zen To Done: The Ultimate Simple Productivity System was made available to purchase.[7] It is composed of some of Zen Habits’ popular blog posts.

On January 7, 2008, the Zen Habits blog and Zen to Done e-book were dedicated to the public domain.

On December 30, 2008, Babauta’s first print book, The Power of Less, was published by Hyperion Books. It reached the Amazon best-seller list on its first day and remains one of the top business motivation books on Amazon.
