Nassim Nicholas Taleb - The Black Swan
What have the invention of the wheel, Pompeii, the Wall Street Crash, Harry Potter and the internet got in common? Why are all forecasters con-artists? What can Catherine the Great's lovers tell us about probability? And, why should you never run for a train or read a newspaper? This book is all about Black Swans: the random events that underlie our lives, from bestsellers to world disasters. Their impact is huge; they're impossible to predict; yet after they happen we always try to rationalize them. A rallying cry to ignore the 'experts', "The Black Swan" shows us how to stop trying to predict everything - and take advantage of uncertainty.

Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart. Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night?

Homonnay Péter - Angol-magyar számítástechnikai szótár
A számítástechnika nyelve az angol. A számítógépekhez adott dokumentációkat sok esetben le sem fordítják, mert mire elkészülne a magyar kiadás, az operációs rendszer adott változata elévül. Célszerű az eredeti szakkönyvet használni és néhány száz angol szakkifejezést elsajátítani. Ebben igyekszik segíteni ez az összeállítás. A szavak válogatásakor figyelembe vettem a Magyar Szabványügyi Hivatal számítástechnikával foglalkozó 1980-1981-es kiadványait, az IBM adatfeldolgozási szótárt, valamint hazánkban megjelent többféle adatfeldolgozási szótárt. A szótár nem tartalmaz lyukkártyatechnikára (Hollerith) hivatkozó szakkifejezést, mert az már elavult. A szótár viszonylag sok, a számítástechnikától látszólag független közhasznú szót is tartalmaz egyrészt azért, hogy nagyszótárt lehetőleg ne kelljen használni, másrészt egy-egy szónak sokféle magyar megfelelője közül azokat válogattam ki, amelyek az erdeti szövegkörnyezetben felmerültek. Néhány angol kifejezés legjobb magyar megfelelője az erdeti angol szó, de ilyenkor is feltöntettem a különböző vállalatoknál használt, sokszor eltérő magyar szakkifejezést, ami az értelmezésben segít. Az összeállítás főleg a TPA-11 számítógépcsalád felhasználói (alkalmazói) programozóinak nyújt segítséget, de ÉSZR és személyi számítógépek (PC) környezetében dolgozó, angolul kevéssé tudó munkatársak számára is segédeszköz lehet. Budapest, 1986. augusztus

Ismeretlen szerző - Európa kisatlasz
Az atlasz kétféle méretarányban dolgozza fel Európát. A részletesebb térképlapok lényegében a kontinentális területeket ábrázolják, míg a ritkábban lakott, ill. nagy kiterjedésű részeket (pl. Skandinávia, Oroszország nyugati része) kevésbé részletes lapok mutatják be.
Vera Soutgate - Dick Whittington (angol)
Dick Whittington and His Cat is an English folk tale that has often been used as the basis for stage pantomimes and other adaptations. It tells of a poor boy in the 14th century who becomes a wealthy merchant and eventually the Lord Mayor of London because of the ratting abilities of his cat. The character of the boy is named after a real-life person, Richard Whittington, but the real Whittington did not come from a poor family and there is no evidence that he had a cat.

Bikers, con artists, drunk drivers, drug dealers - they're all on Mickey Haller's client list. For him, the law is rarely about guilt or innocence, it's about negotiation and manipulation.

It is a defense attorney's dream, what they call a franchise case. And as the evidence stacks up, Haller comes to believe this may be the easiest case of his career.

Charles Dickens - Our Mutual Friend
Paul Scofield, one of Britain's most distinguished actors, reads Our Mutual Friend, Dickens' mysterious murder story. Scofield won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Sir Thomas More in A Man For All Seasons, a role he created on the stage. In the last of Dickens' completed novels, a bitter love triangle, a mysterious inheritance, and power of money motivates, frustrates and activates the characters to a bitter end. Our Mutual Friend is a witty indictment of a society fallen prey to the dawning age of commercialism.
Walter Isaacson - Steve Jobs
Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted. Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple’s hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.
