Anna und Sebastiano sind zurück! Das Traumpaar der Zeitenzauber-Trilogie hat einen kühnen Plan: eine eigene Zeitreise-Akademie in Venedig, dem Ort, wo das Abenteuer ihrer Liebe begann. Doch das Rekrutieren neuer Schüler stellt sich als unerwartet gefährlich heraus. Ihr erster Novize heißt Ole und ist ein waschechter und ziemlich rücksichtsloser Wikinger, der völlig andere Pläne verfolgt als Anna und Sebastiano. Ehe die beiden sich versehen, stecken sie bis zum Hals in Schwierigkeiten und müssen nicht nur um Oles Leben kämpfen, sondern auch um ihr eigenes. Kurzroman als Auftakt zur neuen Jugendbuch-Reihe Time School von Eva Völler (mit Leseprobe aus dem 1. Band "Auf ewig dein")

Author: Rolf Wiggershaus
Publisher: MIT Press
The book is based on documentary and biographical materials that have only recently become available. As the narrative follows the Institute for Social Research from Frankfurt am Main to Geneva, New York, and Los Angeles, and then back to Frankfurt, Wiggershaus continually ties the evolution of the school to the changing intellectual and political contexts in which it operated.

Walter Benjamin was perhaps the twentieth century's most elusive intellectual. His writings defy categorization, and his improvised existence has proven irresistible to mythologizers. In a major new biography, Howard Eiland and Michael Jennings present a comprehensive portrait of the man and his times, as well as extensive commentary on his work.
The first book-length study in any language of the "Berlin School," the most significant filmmaking movement to come out of Germany since the 1970s.
#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER • Featuring a new foreword by Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell Mark H. McCormack, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in American business, is widely credited as the founder of the modern-day sports marketing industry. On a handshake with Arnold Palmer and less than a thousand dollars, he started International Management Group and, over a four-decade period, built the company into a multimillion-dollar enterprise with offices in more than forty countries. To this day, McCormack’s business classic remains a must-read for executives and managers at every level, featuring straight-talking advice you’ll never hear in business school. Relating his proven method of “applied people sense” in key chapters on sales, negotiation, reading others and yourself, and executive time management, McCormack presents powerful real-world guidance on • the secret life of a deal • management philosophies that don’t work (and one that does) • the key to running a meeting—and how to attend one • the positive use of negative reinforcement • proven ways to observe aggressively and take the edge • and much more Praise for What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School “Incisive, intelligent, and witty, What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School is a sure winner—like the author himself. Reading it has taught me a lot.”—Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman, News Corp, chairman and CEO, 21st Century Fox “Clear, concise, and informative . . . Like a good mentor, this book will be a valuable aid throughout your business career.”—Herbert J. Siegel, chairman, Chris-Craft Industries, Inc. “Mark McCormack describes the approach I have personally seen him adopt, which has not only contributed to the growth of his business, but mine as well.”—Arnold Palmer “There have been what we love to call dynasties in every sport. IMG has been different. What this one brilliant man, Mark McCormack, created is the only dynasty ever over all sport.”—Frank Deford, senior contributing writer, Sports Illustrated
