L'hypothèse d'instabilité financière by Hyman P Minsky( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in French and English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le malaise des nations capitalistes est au moins partiellement iatrogène : c'est le médecin qui a inoculé la maladie à son patient." Théorie économique élaborée dans les années 1960, l'hypothèse d'instabilité financière postule que le système capitaliste est instable par essence : toute phase d'équilibre apparent ne fait qu'encourager les acteurs du marché à prendre davantage de risques, qui provoquent de nouvelles crises. Décriée à l'époque, cette analyse est aujourd'hui considérée comme l'une des plus à même d'expliquer la crise actuelle. Elle offre une première approche passionnante d'une œuvre dense, jusqu'à présent méconnue en France. [4e de couv.]

10 great ways to get better at chess by Nigel Davies( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can you improve at chess? This is the eternal question asked by players of all levels. Which part of the game should you focus on? How often should you play? Should you change your opening repertoire? What’s the best way to learn from your defeats? So many questions ... and yet direct answers are hard to find. It’s no wonder aspiring players are left bewildered and in need of direction. In this book grandmaster Nigel Davies provides that direction. He examines the methods used by a number of players who were looking to improve their game, and how they went about achieving their goal. He has drawn heavily on the games and thoughts of players who have been his students over the years and experienced a clear improvement in their play. Finding the path towards improvement can prove difficult without the right guidance. This book will demonstrate the route to take."--Publisher description

The seven deadly chess sins : Scotland's youngest grandmaster discusses the most common causes of disaster in chess by Jonathan Rowson( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone loses chess games occasionally, but all too often we lose a game due to moves that, deep down, we knew were flawed. Why do we commit these chess-board sins? Are they the result of general misconceptions about chess and how it should be played better? In this thought-provoking and entertaining book, Jonathan Rowson investigates, in his inimitable style, the main reasons why chess-players sometimes go horribly astray. He focuses on several underlying psychological pitfalls: Thinking (unneceessary or erroneous); Blinking (missing opportunities; lack of resolution); Wanting (too much concern with the result of the game); Materialism (lack of attention to non-material factors); Egoism (insufficient awareness of the opponent and his ideas); Perfectionism (running short of time; trying too hard); and Looseness ("losing the plot"; drifting; poor concentration). A great book for readers interested in understanding why they sometimes make the mistakes that frustrate their efforts at winning!"--Publisher description
