'It's a cliche to compare novelists to Jane Austen, but in the case of Jane Gardam it happens to be true. Her diamond-like prose, her understanding of the human heart, her formal inventiveness and her sense of what it is to be alive - young, old, lonely, in love - never fades' Amanda Craig 'I love Jane Gardam, especially Old Filth' Nina Stibbe 'Her work, like Sylvia Townsend Warner's, has that appealing combination of elegance, erudition and flinty wit' Patrick Gale 'One of the finest writers around. Old Filth has stayed with me for years...Can't think of anyone who achieves so much with so few words' Sathnam Sanghera Sir Edward Feathers has had a brilliant career, from his early days as a lawyer in Southeast Asia, where he earned the nickname Old Filth (Failed In London, Try Hong Kong) to his final working days as a respected judge at the bar. Yet through it all he has carried with him the wounds of a difficult and emotionally hollow childhood. Now an eighty-year-old widower living in comfortable seclusion in Dorset, Feathers is finally free from the demands of his work and the sentimental scaffolding that has sustained him throughout his life. He slips back into the past with ever mounting frequency and intensity, and on the tide of these vivid, lyrical musings, Feathers approaches a reckoning with his own history. Not all the old filth, it seems, can be cleaned away. Jane Gardam has written a literary masterpiece that retraces much of the twentieth century's torrid and momentous history. Feathers' childhood in Malaya during the British Empire's heyday, his schooling in pre-war England, his professional success in Southeast Asia and his return to England toward the end of the millennium, are vantage points from which the reader can observe the march forward of an eventful era and the steady progress of that man, Sir Edward Feathers, Old Filth himself, who embodies the century's fate.

Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam (eBook, ePUB)
4,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The year is 1968. Like thousands of other American boys, Carl Melcher is drafted and sent to Vietnam. His new company is infected with the same racial tensions plaguing the nation. Despite that, Carl makes friends on both sides of the color line. The war, like a tiger lurking in the bushes, picks off its victims one by one. Naively over-optimistic, Carl believes that karma and good intentions will save him and his friends. Then fate intervenes to teach Carl something of the meaning of life, and death. Along with the likes of best-selling authors Joyce Carol Oates and David McCullough -- whose works were nominated for Wednesday's Frankfurt eBook Awards -- is an author who's only sold eight copies. Carl Melcher Goes to Vietnam, a non-fiction work by Paul Clayton, was rejected by traditional publishers before being picked up last year by Electric eBook Publishing. - M. J. Rose (writing for Wired.com) Vietnam, 1968, dawn, perimeter guard... "What do you think about being in Vietnam?" I said.Ron laughed. The horizon was cherry red, and we could hardly see each other."We're just here for business.""What do you mean?""I mean that this war is just a business deal. The big boys got together and said, 'Look, the economy isn't doing so hot and we got all these extra people with no jobs, just causing trouble, so why don't we have us a little drawn-out war. That way we can get rid of the excess population and pump up the economy."I smiled. "C'mon, you're telling me this whole war was cooked up to boost the economy?""That's right.""The American, maybe, but not the Vietnamese. I can't see them sacrificing thousands of their people.""Life is cheap over here.""I don't believe it.""Why do you think there's so much trash in the company?""What do you mean?""C'mon, Carl. A third of the men on this hill are black trash and the rest are all white trash."I laughed. I had never thought of myself as 'white trash.'Ron spoke like a teacher giving a lecture. "You see, the rich man in America struck a deal with the Communist bosses in Asia. The Asians have a population way more than what their lands can support, and America has an excess of trash."Ron sighed. "The only reason the war's lasted as long as it has is because it's all bullshit and everybody knows it. And that's why the troops ain't taking no chances. Why get yourself killed when them senators' and businessmen's sons are laying up at some Ivy League college studying poli-sci or history of art or something like that, and gettin' all the girls they want!"

It could mean that your essence, the part of you that is just as non-material as a file on a computer hard drive, will not disappear in the void when your physical body dies...the same way you save a file onto another storage device, our creator (God, Allah, Yahweh, or whatever name/language you prefer) might save your soul, the bio-electronic file that is you. Obviously, your soul is the combination of your identity, your ego, your consciousness, your memories, etc., everything other than your physical body, the hardware.Would you save a file that is not worth saving or a file that is corrupted? Probably not. Would our creator save a soul if it was corrupt or not worth saving? Probably not.You might have your hopes up high by some brave entrepreneurs who promise that in a couple of decades they will develop technology to keep you alive forever by downloading your mind into a super-computer. Well, even if that became reality, it would mean evolving in the wrong direction. Wouldn't you rather move forward by ascending to a higher form of existence? If ascension is a possibility, our creator must have just the right plan for those who meet the criteria. Life after death? A guide to reaching the unimaginable wonders of Afterlife attempts to analyse what that criteria might be.

Old Filth

'It's a cliche to compare novelists to Jane Austen, but in the case of Jane Gardam it happens to be true. Her diamond-like prose, her understanding of the human heart, her formal inventiveness and her sense of what it is to be alive - young, old, lonely, in love - never fades' Amanda Craig'I love Jane Gardam, especially Old Filth' Nina Stibbe'Her work, like Sylvia Townsend Warner's, has that appealing combination of elegance, erudition and flinty wit' Patrick Gale'One of the finest writers around. Old Filth has stayed with me for years...Can't think of anyone who achieves so much with so few words' Sathnam SangheraSir Edward Feathers has had a brilliant career, from his early days as a lawyer in Southeast Asia, where he earned the nickname Old Filth (Failed In London, Try Hong Kong) to his final working days as a respected judge at the bar. Yet through it all he has carried with him the wounds of a difficult and emotionally hollow childhood.Now an eighty-year-old widower living in comfortable seclusion in Dorset, Feathers is finally free from the demands of his work and the sentimental scaffolding that has sustained him throughout his life. He slips back into the past with ever mounting frequency and intensity, and on the tide of these vivid, lyrical musings, Feathers approaches a reckoning with his own history. Not all the old filth, it seems, can be cleaned away.Jane Gardam has written a literary masterpiece that retraces much of the twentieth century's torrid and momentous history. Feathers' childhood in Malaya during the British Empire's heyday, his schooling in pre-war England, his professional success in Southeast Asia and his return to England toward the end of the millennium, are vantage points from which the reader can observe the march forward of an eventful era and the steady progress of that man, Sir Edward Feathers, Old Filth himself, who embodies the century's fate.

“Provocative, powerful, and full of actionable wisdom. The Algorithmic Leader is a tour de force of ideas and insights from global pioneers who are challenging the status quo and reinventing organizations. Mike Walsh has produced a must-read for every leader and entrepreneur in this digital age.” — Daniel Hulme, Founder & CEO of Satalia 'This book first made me deeply uneasy, and then deeply inspired. Like you, I wrestle with how best to thrive as our world grows increasingly complex and confusing, a world where the simple rules just don’t work anymore. Mike Walsh’s ten principles, distilled from real-life experience and deep thinking, point the way forward.' — Michael Bungay Stanier, author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Coaching Habit “Great companies are built on culture. Mike Walsh’s prescient vision of the algorithmic company of the future is no robot army of soulless analytics dashboards, but a living, breathing organism—a community of humans who respond to motivation beyond compensation; purpose and impact; decision-making and autonomy; location and collaboration. A worthy read.” — Brian Halligan, Founder & CEO of Hubspot “Mike Walsh provides an interesting and informative look at our future, which will be defined by algorithms and artificial intelligence. The underlying technologies may seem complex, but the message for business leaders is simple: use the new tools to enhance your skills—or become roadkill.” — Vivek Wadhwa, Distinguished Fellow, Harvard Law School, Labor and Worklife Program and author of The Driver in the Driverless Car “Mike Walsh’s years of talking to the world’s technology leaders have given him unusually deep insight into the ways in which technology will change our world. Now he has written a powerful book that enables the rest of us to gain that insight. This book will change the way you think. Full of rich examples and great quotes, it is like a hyperspeed trip into the future that will give you a whole new perspective on your industry and career.” — Melissa Schilling, author of Quirky and Strategic Management of Technological Innovation “Mike Walsh’s The Algorithmic Leader is an intelligent and timely look at leadership in the digital age. If the twentieth century was governed by leaders of people, the twenty-first will be governed by leaders who understand the relationship between people and the technologies that define the modern workplace. Walsh exposes not just opportunities, but also potential pitfalls, ultimately leaving today’s leaders smarter and better prepared for the coming rise of algorithms and big data.” — Adam Alter, author of the New York Times bestseller Irresistible and Drunk Tank Pink “I have read many thousands of pages about the impact of algorithms and automation on our lives, and Mike Walsh’s The Algorithmic Leader stands out from the crowd. It is honest in its complexity, practical in its lessons, and profound in its analysis of the future of work. It’s a must-read for anyone contemplating how smart humans can collaborate with smart machines.”— David Epstein, author of the New York Times bestseller The Sports Gene and Range “ The Algorithmic Leader is brilliant and scary. The scale of change that AI is bringing into our lives can be bewildering. In this timely book, Mike Walsh provides (often counterintuitive) ideas and fascinating insights into what the coming decades will bring. Read it twice, or to be safe, three times. This is an essential book.” — Efe Cakarel, founder & CEO of MUBI “We are at the dawn of the artificial intelligence era. Mike Walsh offers a succinct guide for leaders to understand the secrets of the new algorithmic age, and how they apply in a disruptive and diverse global context. You cannot grasp the future of AI without considering Asia. Understanding leaders like Jack Ma and Masayoshi Son is as important as
