Absurd truths


Maier's thesis: In modern Company He does not keep his job, which works the most and is committed, but the one who knows how to make life in the office everyday as pleasant as possible - and to tease as little as possible.

This paradox, which has long since become the absurd truth in most companies, is examined in detail by the author.

Of corporate talk and scapegoats


Starting with the no-man's language, which everyone speaks, but no one understands all the way up to the lump sum for all responsible fool that exists in every company, merciless word and hierarchy pennsles are called by name, which seem familiar to anyone who ever in a company.

And since it is pointless to change the system and no one is measured by the quality of its work, but rather by its adaptability, Corinne Maier gives those useful tips and empirical values ​​that have become aware of the excessive absurdity of the system are.

Misleading, but good!


Of course she is frustrated, but she packs it witty and subtle. Of course, this book contains no concrete active instructions, but rather a call to refuse to work. But at the same time the author proves with her book practically to itself as an example that one can do something - and shows at the same time how exaggerated your own theses are.

And sure, the title is completely wrong and simply misleading. Only: Who has expected under the title of a guide to laziness in the office, perhaps just before should read the blurb. It quickly becomes clear that this is a pamphlet disguised as a guidebook - and that's another pretty ironic marketing strategy.

New mother of the successful literature reissued


This fits well for me a book from a subject that is only just next to the esoteric. Reason: it is one of the first works of the "success literature" and was virtually the blueprint for "The Secret". The book has been reissued by Börsenmediem Verlag. For me the reason to take a critical look at it.

Published for the first time at the beginning of the last century, Wallace D. Wattle's 1860-born "The Science, The Road to the Realm" is one of the classics of successful literature. Reason enough to take a closer look at the new edition of Books4Success Verlag.

To be rich does not go by saving!


The new hype surrounding the book was sparked by Rhonda Byrne. She has led "The Science of Being Rich" as a source of inspiration for her world's "The Secret". And as a source of inspiration, the book can actually serve.

Provided one is not disturbed by the high tone of the preacher, and can not be exasperated by the categorical demand to rigorously eliminate all the plagues of life (from poverty to disease).

The potential is there, we just have to realize it


"The Science of Being Rich," as the title implies, is based on the assumption that "all that you see on earth is formed of an original substance from which all things spring." And Wattles is convinced that there is no shortage of this substance, because "the universe is made of it".

However Wattles came to this conclusion, it coincides pretty much exactly with the findings of modern physics. But Wattles makes it a religion, in the center of which he places the thinking man. He can intervene thinkingly and formally into this substance, he says, if he strives hard enough.

The foundation stone for the universe


He has laid the foundation for today's "Wish-you-what-when-universe" literature. That's not what he is concerned about. The goal of Wallace D. Wattles is to develop "body, soul and spirit" so that each person benefits from the "fullness of life".

Interesting are the conclusions Wattles draws from his assumptions. Its core theme is, "Thoughts determine reality." There is also a consensus on this today (eg self-fulfilling prophecy).

Thoughts determine the reality


Based on this, he describes a program that, in its forcefulness, can still develop an amazing power today. This includes the formulation of a clear vision (today the basis of every mental training), the unconditional will to give the best of "now" (not yesterday, not tomorrow).

But also consciously to feel gratitude towards the possibilities and the people. Moreover, a key element of his program is to open oneself to success if he chooses (kairos).



Less of the somewhat crude theoretical framework, the book is as brief (138 pages) as it is an impressive invitation to clarify its aims and desires and strive hard to achieve them.

And that is still an important pointer, even a hundred years after the publication of the first edition.
