The Theoretical Minimum
A world-class physicist and a citizen scientist combine forces to teach Physics 101—the DIY way The Theoretical Minimum is a book for anyone who has ever regretted not taking physics in college—or who simply wants to know how to think like a physicist. In this unconventional introduction, physicist Leonard Susskind and hacker-scientist George Hrabovsky offer a first course in physics and associated math for the ardent amateur. Unlike most popular physics books—which give readers a taste of what physicists know but shy away from equations or math—Susskind and Hrabovsky actually teach the skills you need to do physics, beginning with classical mechanics, yourself. Based on Susskind's enormously popular Stanford University-based (and YouTube-featured) continuing-education course, the authors cover the minimum—the theoretical minimum of the title—that readers need to master to study more advanced topics. An alternative to the conventional go-to-college method, The Theoretical Minimum provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace.
Le Secret du Poids
Comment se fait-il que certaines personnes arrivent à rester mince toute leur vie, tandis que d'autres traînent constamment des kilos superflus, qu'elles n'arrivent pas à perdre ? Est-ce là une injustice contre laquelle on ne peut rien ? Être mince ou en surpoids, ou entre les deux, est-ce une destinée ? Non, non, mille fois non. Vous pouvez avoir la silhouette que vous avez choisie. Pour cela, vous devez savoir comment le poids fonctionne. Le Secret du Poids vous offre cette connaissance. Cette méthode explique concrètement comment garder la ligne en mangeant ce que l'on veut. Elle repose sur des données alimentaires qui existent depuis toujours. Ces données sont ensuite englobées dans une vision de l'alimentation tout à fait particulière : gaie, simple, permissive et étonnante. Entrez dans un concept que j'ai façonné au cours des années ; il a enchanté mes amies les plus proches, qui, grâce à cette méthode, n'ont plus jamais connu de problèmes de poids et se sentent enfin libres !

Advanced Linux Programming Portable Documents
This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Advanced Linux Programming is divided into two parts. The first covers generic UNIX system services, but with a particular eye towards Linux specific information. This portion of the book will be of use even to advanced programmers who have worked with other Linux systems since it will cover Linux specific details and differences. For programmers without UNIX experience, it will be even more valuable. The second section covers material that is entirely Linux specific. These are truly advanced topics, and are the techniques that the gurus use to build great applications. While this book will focus mostly on the Application Programming Interface (API) provided by the Linux kernel and the C library, a preliminary introduction to the development tools available will allow all who purchase the book to make immediate use of Linux.

The Medici Effect With a New Preface and Discussion Guide
Why do so many world-changing insights come from people with little or no related experience? Charles Darwin was a geologist when he proposed the theory of evolution. And it was an astronomer who finally explained what happened to the dinosaurs. Frans Johansson's The Medici Effect shows how breakthrough ideas most often occur when we bring concepts from one field into a new, unfamiliar territory and offers examples of how we can turn the ideas we discover into path-breaking innovations. Clayton M. Christensen, bestselling author of The Innovator's Dilemma, has described The Medici Effect as "one of the most insightful books about managing innovation I have ever read. Its assertion that breakthrough principles of creativity occur at novel intersections is an enduring principle of creativity that should guide innovators in every field." Now with a new preface and a discussion guide, and a foreword by Harvard Business School professor Teresa Amabile, The Medici Effect is a timeless classic that will help you reach your innovative peak.
