Chris Anderson, seit mehr als einer Dekade der Kopf hinter den TED Talks, hat das offizielle Handbuch geschrieben: ›TED Talks: Die Kunst der öffentlichen Rede‹. Was als jährlich stattfindende Innovationskonferenz in Kalifornien begann, ist mittlerweile zu einem globalen Phänomen geworden: TED Talks werden in Städten auf der ganzen Welt gehalten und im Internet frei zugänglich gemacht. Den Themen sind keine Grenzen gesetzt, einziges Kriterium: die Ideen müssen begeistern und inspirieren – und das in 18 Minuten. Anderson verfügt über einen immensen Erfahrungsschatz und weiß, was eine gute Rede gut macht. Und genau das verrät er in diesem Buch: - Wie entwickle ich eine Idee und spinne einen roten Faden? - Wie bereite ich mich vor: Schreibe ich ein Skript oder spreche ich frei? - Was ziehe ich an? - Und wie gehe ich mit Lampenfieber um? »Wenn Sie vorhaben, auch nur einen Ton von sich zu geben, sollten Sie dieses Buch lesen.« Adam Grant »Mit den TED Talks ist die Kunst der Rhetorik für das 21. Jahrhundert neu erfunden worden. (...) Hinter dieser Revolution steckt Chris Anderson, der die Vision hat, dass gute Ideen die Welt verbessern können, und einen Leitfaden für die gute, überzeugende Rede entwickelt hat.« Steven Pinker

In Practice Makes Perfect: English Verbs, students have the opportunity to study verbs in the three areas of form, meaning, and use. The text contains comprehensive overviews and exercises, both receptive and productive, on verb tense and aspect. Students conjugate verbs, but they also study the meanings these verb forms carry and the contexts in which they commonly appear. The verbs chosen for exercises come from a list of frequently used verbs. The first chapters present relatively straightforward verb phrases; the final chapters introduce more complicated forms, including phrasal verbs, modal verbs, and verbal complements (gerunds and infinitives). English Verbs also contains chapters on sentence constructions in which verbs play a central part: imperatives, conditionals, and passives. By working through each of the chapters in this text, students will achieve a comprehensive understanding of the English verb--a major step in acquiring a new language.

Warum Faulheit und Ablenkung dabei helfen

Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.
