Jeder weiß, was er am liebsten isst, welche Farbe er mag und welches die beste Kultserie ist. Aber wie entscheiden wir, was wir gut finden? Sind diese Entscheidungen biologisch begründet oder von persönlichen Erfahrungen geprägt? Tom Vanderbilt stützt sich auf die neuesten Erkenntnisse von Psychologie und Hirnforschung und beantwortet die Frage nach den Ursprüngen unseres Geschmacks. Von den komplizierten Hintergründen der Essensauswahl über die Nonstop-Vergabe von Likes im Netz bis zu unserer Unsicherheit beim Anblick eines Kunstwerks: Tom Vanderbilt zeigt in diesem Standardwerk, welcher Anteil der Präferenzen im Alltag in unseren Gehirnen angelegt ist und welcher von unserem Umfeld beeinflusst wird

The forest unseen : a year's watch in nature by David George Haskell( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this wholly original book, biologist David Haskell uses a one-square-meter patch of old-growth Tennessee forest as a window onto the entire natural world. Visiting it almost daily for one year to trace nature's path through the seasons, he brings the forest and its inhabitants to vivid life. Each short chapter begins with a simple observation: a salamander scuttling across the leaf litter; the first blossom of spring wildflowers. From these, Haskell spins a web of biology and ecology, explaining the science that binds together the tiniest microbes and the largest mammals and describing the ecosystems that have cycled for thousands--sometimes millions--of years. Each visit to the forest presents a nature story in miniature as Haskell elegantly teases out the intricate relationships that order the creatures and plants that call it home. Written with grace and empathy, The Forest Unseen is a grand tour of nature in all its profundity"--
Psychothérapie de Dieu by Boris Cyrulnik( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : " Aujourd'hui, sur la planète, 7 milliards d'êtres humains entrent plusieurs fois par jour en relation avec un Dieu qui les aide. Ils sont mus par le désir d'offrir à Dieu et aux autres humains leur temps, leurs biens, leur travail et parfois leur corps pour éprouver le bonheur de donner du bonheur. Méditer, trouver son chemin de vie personnel, éprouver la joie de se sentir vivant parmi ceux qu'on aime - la spiritualité élargit la fraternité à tous les croyants du monde. La psychothérapie de Dieu nous aide à affronter les souffrances de l'existence et à mieux profiter du simple bonheur d'être. Il y a certainement une explication psychologique à cette grâce. Ce livre est le résultat de cette quête. "
Yesterday, today, tomorrow : my life by Sophia Loren( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her first memoir, the Academy Award-winning actress Sophia Loren tells her incredible life story from the struggles of her childhood in war-torn Naples to her life as a screen legend, icon of elegance, and devoted mother. In her acting career spanning more than six decades, Sophia Loren became known for her striking beauty and dramatic roles with famed costars Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, Gregory Peck, Jack Lemmon, and Paul Newman. The luminous Italian movie star was the first artist to win an Oscar for a foreign language performance, after which she continued a vibrant and varied career that took her from Hollywood to Paris to Italy--and back to Hollywood. In Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, Loren shares vivid memories of work, love, and family with winning candor. Born in 1934 and growing up in World War II Italy, Loren's life of glamour and success was preceded by years of poverty and hardship, when she lived in her grandparents' house with her single mother and sister, and endured near starvation. She shares how she blossomed from a toothpick-thin girl into a beautiful woman seemingly overnight, getting her start by winning a beauty pageant; and how her first Hollywood film, The Pride and the Passion, ignited a high-profile romance with Cary Grant, who would vie with her mentor, friend, frequent producer, and lover Carlo Ponti to become her husband. Loren also reveals her long-held desire to become a mother, the disappointments she suffered, the ultimate joy of having two sons, and her happiness as a mother and grandmother. From trying times to triumphant ones, this scintillating autobiography paints a multi-dimensional portrait of the woman behind the celebrity, beginning each chapter with a letter, photograph, or object that prompts her memories. In Loren's own words, this is a collection of 'unpublished memories, curious anecdotes, tiny secrets told, all of which spring from a box found by chance, a precious treasure trove filled with emotions, experiences, adventures.' Her wise and candid voice speaks from the pages with riveting detail and sharp humor. Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is as elegant, entrancing, and memorable as Sophia Loren herself"--
