In 1998 Susan Anker set out to write a book that would help developmental students to see writing as vitally relevant to their lives beyond required English courses. The phenomenal success of Real Writing and testimonials from many adopters confirm this core belief. Students are motivated to learn and improve when they connect the ability to write well with their larger goals — with what they want to do in life and who they want to become. A range of features in the book shows writing to be an essential and achievable skill. In Profiles of Success, former students, now employed in a variety of professions, describe the academic, financial, and personal challenges they have overcome and the importance of good writing skills to their work. Presenting instruction in manageable increments, Real Writing features the "Four Basics" of each type of writing and begins its full grammar coverage with the "Four Most Serious Errors." With abundant and lively practices, assignments, and activities, Real Writing successfully motivates students to improve their writing as no other text does. In this edition Susan Anker continues to find new ways to help students, encouraging them to connect with their college communities and, as always, to connect their writing with their larger goals.

Like all the books in the Anker series, Real Essays presents writing in logical, manageable increments: step-by-step writing guides and a focus on the "four basics" of each mode of writing keep students from becoming overwhelmed.

Apple, Audi, Braun oder Samsung machen es vor: Gutes Design ist heute eine kritische Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Produkte. Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte. Don Norman fordert ein Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Technologie mit dem Ziel, dass Designer und Produktentwickler die Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Handlungsweisen der Nutzer in den Vordergrund stellen und Designs an diesen angepasst werden. The Design of Everyday Things ist eine informative und spannende Einführung für Designer, Marketer, Produktentwickler und für alle an gutem Design interessierten Menschen. Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois.

Oft traurig und doch voller Witz und Lebensmut — eine wahre Geschichte vom Erwachsenwerden und Überleben Liz Murray, aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Eltern drogensüchtig, mit 15 obdachlos, ohne Schulausbildung. Wie schafft sie den Absprung in ein Leben mit Zukunft? Liz Murray erzählt vom Erwachsenwerden, davon, wie sie ihre Eltern verliert und sich mühevoll ein Harvard-Stipendium erarbeitet, mit einer Sprache, die — anrührend und humorvoll zugleich — alles lebendig werden lässt. Schon als kleines Kind weiß Liz Murray, was es heißt, am Existenzminimum zu leben. Armut und Hunger bestimmen den Alltag ihrer Familie. Doch obwohl die Hippie-Eltern drogenabhängig sind, erleben Liz und ihre Schwester Lisa nicht nur Elend und Leid. Im Gegenteil, ihr Vater ist ein schräger, aber liebevoller Mensch, und er bringt seinen Töchtern bei, nicht auf das Geschwätz der Leute zu hören, sondern der Welt kritisch zu begegnen. Die Momente des Glücks sind dennoch kurz. Mit 15 ist Liz obdachlos, schwänzt die Schule und zieht mit anderen Kindern, die auch nirgends hingehören, durch die Straßen. Erst als ihre Mutter an Aids stirbt, wird Liz klar, dass sie so nicht enden will. Mit großer Willenskraft und einem Durchhaltevermögen, das sie selbst erstaunt, schafft sie mit 19 ihren Highschool-Abschluss und macht ihren Weg bis an die Eliteuniversität Harvard.

Building on the success of the first, this new edition has been updated to cover the latest hiring trends, changing economic circumstances, and feedback from readers. The authors have expanded the book to deal with issues faced by minority candidates, and have added contributions from scientists to cover such issues as negotiating faculty contracts to ensure adequate lab space and resources. They give more emphasis to applying for non-academic jobs and offer case study scenarios of candidates who have followed both academic and non academic paths. The authors urge readers to go develop a philosophy statement for research and service, as well as for teaching. They explain what’s involved in applying for joint positions, offer advice on applying for administrative jobs outside the academy, and prepare the reader for first year academic and corporate performance reviews. They have updated the resources, references, examples and scenarios. This book covers the process for Master’s- and Ph.D.-level job-seekers of all disciplines: from identifying sources of information about positions, to advising on the preparation of effective CVs and portfolios, through guidance on the process of interview to final negotiation of terms. Its invaluable advice is informed by the authors’ experiences in both academic and corporate arenas, as well as by the narratives of current and recent job seekers. The authors cover the full spectrum of potential positions—adjunct, visiting, temporary and tenure-track faculty appointments—at-year and 2-year institutions. This book includes sample application letters and vitae, a model for job search workshop, and a rich list of resources both in print and on-line. An accompanying Web site offers a wealth of information on locating job postings, complete with hot links to major sites, both general and discipline-specific; presents eight sample application packets by successful humanities, social sciences, and sciences candidates, with accompanying comments on key features by the book’s authors; and an extensive listing of useful books and online resources. While being realistic about the trends in higher education, the decline in tenure-track positions, and greater competition for available positions, the authors actively combat the gloom and doom approach of competing books by emphasizing that readers have it in their power to adopt strategies, and take actions and choices, that can greatly improve their chances of success. The authors aim to help candidates see what they already have and how to get that across as clearly as possible to potential hiring committees. Contact the Authors: Share your story! We hope to continue collecting timely narratives to keep Job Search useful, and we welcome your e-mails.

Mehrere Jahre musste der österreichische Psychologe Viktor E. Frankl in deutschen Konzentrationslagern verbringen. Doch trotz all des Leids, das er dort sah und erlebte, kam er zu dem Schluss, dass es selbst an Orten der größten Unmenschlichkeit möglich ist, einen Sinn im Leben zu sehen. Seine Erinnerungen, die er in diesem Buch festhielt und die über Jahrzehnte Millionen von Menschen bewegten, sollen weder Mitleid erregen noch Anklage erheben. Sie sollen Kraft zum Leben geben.
