Author: Nita Farrier
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In 1949, a twenty-six-year-old Iowa farm girl named Nita Farrier accepts a position as secretary to the Allied Occupation Force in Vienna, Austria. During her time off , she travels extensively throughout Europe, experiencing and recording in her journals the sights and sounds of Europes most exciting cities. From the Viennese opera where she observes audience members enjoying wine, sausage, and bread during the performance (all the while the performers shoes are squeaking with every movement) to the homesickness that she felt acutely during holidays abroad, her journals describe her experiences in wonderful emotional and sensory detail. She was also a direct witness to many important historical events of the day, keeping minutes at many of the fourpower conferences. The Grande Tour offers a glimpse into the daily life of postWorld War II Europe through the eyes of a young civilian woman. Her keen observations provide firsthand insight into the events that followed World War II and European culture of that era.

Warum Fehler uns weiterbringen
Author: Matthew Syed
Publisher: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag
Analysieren statt vertuschen Menschen, die gezielt aus Fehlern lernen, anstatt sie zu vertuschen oder anderen in die Schuhe zu schieben, nennt Matthew Syed Black-Box-Denker. Dazu sind jedoch nur wenige in der Lage. Auch in vielen Unternehmen geht man mit Misserfolgen nicht offen und ohne Schuldzuweisungen um. Syed bietet aufschlussreiche Analysen für dieses Verhalten. Zu welchen Erfolgen hingegen ein offensiver Umgang mit Fehlern führen kann, zeigt Syed anhand konkreter Beispiele, aus der Welt des Sports oder von erfolgreichen Unternehmen wie Google, Pixar oder Dropbox.
Wie unsere Töchter selbstbestimmte Frauen werden
Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag
Category: Literary Collections
Mit fünfzehn Vorschlägen für eine feministische Erziehung wirft die Bestseller-Autorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie so einfache wie wichtige Fragen auf und spannt den Bogen zwischen zwei Generationen von Frauen – ein Buch für Mütter und Töchter. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Feministin und Autorin des preisgekrönten Weltbestsellers ›Americanah‹, hat einen Brief an ihre Freundin Ijeawele geschrieben, die gerade ein Mädchen zur Welt gebracht hat. Ijeawele möchte ihre Tochter zu einer selbstbestimmten Frau erziehen, frei von überholten Rollenbildern und Vorurteilen. Alles selbstverständlich, aber wie gelingt das konkret? Mit ihrem Manifest ›Liebe Ijeawele. Wie unsere Töchter selbstbestimmte Frauen werden‹ zeigt Chimamanda Adichie, dass Feminismus kein Reizwort ist, sondern eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Mit fünfzehn simplen Vorschlägen für eine feministische Erziehung öffnet sie auch den Blick auf die eigene Kindheit und Jugend. Die junge nigerianische Bestseller-Autorin steht für einen Feminismus, mit dem sich alle identifizieren können. We should all be feminists!
