This is a book about the qualities that should be in people seeking success, a book about the harmonious development of man, about finding the meaning of life and the reaction to the circumstances. Stephen Covey studied a huge amount of literature on leadership, on success, analyzed the lives of many great people and came to the conclusion that the basis of long-term success and true self-realization of any person is loyalty to some fundamental principles, eternal truths that are true in any situation and under any circumstances. In fact, Covey is trying modern language and close to all of us the examples to tell about the moral and ethical values which are advocated by all religions of the world (and in this sense the book looks like an attempt to create a modern "10 commandments" — albeit without the concept of God). Most interesting is that Covey with virtually no references to the Bible, though, and says almost the same thing. Great influence on Stephen Covey had Victor Frankl, author of "Say Yes to life": a Psychologist in a concentration camp. The basis of the philosophy of Covey is that a person is always free to choose how to respond to a particular situation. Even in the most desperate situation, in a situation of extreme deprivation of liberty (such as in prison), a person always has the freedom to act one way or another, thereby showing that a person is not a robot, not a puppet of the situation, but an active Creator of his fate. In life, there are often situations when a person seems that he has no way out, that he is trapped, in time trouble, in debt. In such situations, Covey's positive approach may come in handy.
One hundred thousand years ago, Homo sapiens was one of at least six human species that lived on this planet – an unremarkable animal that played no greater role in the ecosystem than gorillas, fireflies or jellyfish. But about seventy thousand years ago, a mysterious change in the cognitive abilities of Homo sapiens turned him into the master of the planet and the nightmare of the ecosystem. How did a reasonable man manage to conquer the world? What happened to the other human species? When and why did money, States and religion appear? How did the Empire collapsed? Why did almost all societies place women below men? How did science and capitalism become the dominant creeds of the modern era? Have people become happier over time? What future awaits us?
Yuval Harari shows how the course of history has shaped human society and the reality around it. His book traces the connection between the events of the past and the problems of modernity and forces the reader to reconsider all the established ideas about the world.
These books can be found in the reading rooms of the scientific library.
