The Caine Mutiny

Herman Wouk / Back Bay Books / 1992-04-01 / 0 次下载
The Novel that Inspired the Now-Classic Film The Caine Mutiny and the Hit Broadway Play The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life-and mutiny-on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater was immediately embraced, upon its original publication in 1951, as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of World War II. In the intervening half century, The Caine Mutiny has become a perennial favorite of readers young and old, has sold millions of copies throughout the world, and has achieved the status of a modern classic.

Outliers

Gladwell, Malcolm / Back Bay Books / 2009-07-01 / 0 次下载
SUMMARY:In this book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of 'outliers'. He asks the question - what makes high achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from - that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player and why Asians are good at math.
