“It’s one of the best books on politics of any kind I’ve read. For entertainment value, I put it up there with Catch 22.” —The Financial Times “It transports you to a parallel universe in which everything in the National Enquirer is true….More interesting is what we learn about the candidates themselves: their frailties, egos and almost super-human stamina.” —The Financial Times “I can’t put down this book!” —Stephen Colbert Game Change is the New York Times bestselling story of the 2008 presidential election, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, two of the best political reporters in the country. In the spirit of Richard Ben Cramer’s What It Takes and Theodore H. White’s The Making of the President 1960, this classic campaign trail book tells the defining story of a new era in American politics, going deeper behind the scenes of the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin campaigns than any other account of the historic 2008 election.

First, Ken Dryden articulated our undying love for hockey in The Game, one of the best books ever written on the sport. Then he spoke to our national pride and examined what hockey really means to Canadians in Home Game. Now, in his most daring and powerful work yet, the NHL Hall-of-Famer and former MP issues a challenge to make hockey safer, or risk losing it altogether. Bobby Orr. Gordie Howe. Wayne Gretzky. Whether you are a hockey fan or not, these names mean something to you. They show that a single player can, and often has, changed the game for the better. Hockey is now more skilled and more tactful and, like pro football and basketball, the players are bigger, stronger, and faster. This is the game that Steve Montador gave his life to. Steve was never the fastest, the strongest, or the most skilled player on the ice. He was never a star. But yet, he changed the game as we know it when he was found dead at the age of 35, later diagnosed with CTE-the result of multiple concussions he sustained throughout his playing career. With extensive research and insightful interviews with friends and former players such as Rhett Warrener, Marc Savard, Keith Primeau, as well as with leading figures in the fields of neurobiology and sports concussions, Ken Dryden tells the remarkable life story of an unremarkable journeyman NHL defenseman-a life story that brings to the fore the underlying concerns of the way we play hockey at all levels. In the end, Dryden outlines a plan directed to players, fans, parents, and most of all to decision makers at the NHL, that can make the sport safer for everyone, without sacrificing the integrity of the game.

He’s a quarterback on his high school’s undefeated football team, but he never plays. Why would he when T.T. Munroe—a walking, talking highlight reel—is around? That is, until T.T’s injured a week before the state championships. Now Zeb is starting. As he assumes the role of QB and team leader, the entire town is watching him. And when a college recruiter says Zeb could have a future beyond his small New Hampshire town, he realizes there’s a bigger life out there for him . . . if he can play his heart out.

Cuando los investigadores comenzaron a explorar el grado de inmersión e interés tan grande de la gente en los videojuegos, se quedaron perplejos. ¿Cómo es que la gente pone más esfuerzo en estos juegos que en su trabajo diario y en sus relaciones personales? ¿Por qué cuando juegan están contentos de trabajar tan duro durante tanto tiempo sin recibir un sueldo por ello? ¿Cómo están estos jugadores, tras haber malgastado su juventud encerrados en su cuarto conectados de manera diferente? ¿Estamos presenciando un cambio significativo en la evolución de la psicología humana? Las ideas que emergen de esta investigación tienen repercusiones muy grandes, no solo para el mundo del trabajo, sino también para una incipiente “economía de participación”. Y la “Gamificación”– la aplicación de nociones de mecánicas de juego muy atractivas, programas de fidelización y economía del comportamiento para impulsar la participación del usuario – son la esencia de este tema. A medida que construyamos una nueva economía digital, será casi inevitable que todos tengamos cada vez más tiempo libre – y las plataformas “gamificadas” nos ayudarán a utilizar ese tiempo de manera beneficiosa. GAME CHANGE explora algunas de las iniciativas más revolucionarias que hemos visto en este campo. Desglosa los mecanismos persuasivos del juego y ofrece ideas sobre cómo poner la teoría en práctica. ASÍ QUE, JUGUEMOS. Es hora de seleccionar un avatar y algunos poderes especiales. El viaje a través de este mundo desafiante comienza en la primera página.

Author Akinola Ajani brings the life shattering consequences of terrorism to life in Operation Game Change through the harrowing account of the activities of a newly created counter-terrorism agency. Set in the fictional country Area N, the faith of the citizens in the ability of their president has dwindled considerably, especially because he seems unable to stop the attacks perpetuated by the terrorist cell, GRIMA VUNA. The president enlists the help of a highly regarded former head of state to combat terrorism. The story is narrated from the first person point of view by Davidson Anderson, one of the special agents in a handpicked squad faced with the herculean task of protecting their country in its hour of maximum danger. Led by Commander Gatman Shizzle, they go through intensive military training sessions; enter a labyrinth of leads, rescue missions and covert operations in a bid to rid society of the terrorists. Operation Game Change is a novel that reflects a thorn in the flesh of society and the unhealthy state of any country whose military has been compromised. It is a thriller that almost bursts with action.

Forget everything you think you know about the making of the most powerful man on the planet. President Barack Obama's triumph was not inevitable: it was the end product of a brilliant, calculated, convention-defying political campaign. In a race that will be talked about for years to come, he faced down his rivals with ruthless focus and efficiency. Race of a Lifetime is the gripping inside story of those thrilling months: from the meteoric rise of Obama and the collapsing House of Clinton to the erratic John McCain and the bewildering Sarah Palin. Brimming with exclusive revelations, this compulsively readable book lays bare the characters of the candidates, warts and all; exposes the inner workings of their operations; and charts the true path to the White House. It's a tour de force: the sometimes shocking, often funny, and ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

The global authority of the West is no longer unchallenged; the Western worldview is no longer accepted as universal. It is increasingly being questioned by emerging economies around the globe that are developing their own standards. If we look at the geographical positions of the emerging economies, it appears that they collectively form a belt around the southern part of the globe: “The Global Southern Belt.” The Westerncentric world is fading into a multicentered world in which many countries and even more important, “a world of cities” will set the tone in global matters. The game changers will be the countries and cities of the Global Southern Belt, which will reshape our world in the decades to come. Like John Naisbitt’s international bestselling book Megatrends in 1982, Global Game Change offers an indispensable roadmap of the transforming global landscape. It replaces the uncertainty of rapid change with a description of the future.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Despite the growing consensus on the need for action to counteract climate change, complex economic and political forces have so far prevented international actors from making much headway toward resolving the problem. Most approaches to climate change are based in economics and environmental science; in this book, Parkash Chander argues that we can make further progress on the climate change impasse by considering a third approach—game theory. Chander shows that a game-theoretic approach, which offers insight into the nature of interactions between sovereign countries behaving strategically and the kinds of outcomes such interactions produce, can illuminate how best to achieve international agreements in support of climate-change mitigation strategies. Game Theory and Climate Change develops a conceptual framework with which to analyze climate change as a strategic or dynamic game, bringing together cooperative and noncooperative game theory and providing practical analyses of international negotiations. Chander offers economic and game-theoretic interpretations of both the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement and argues that the Paris Agreement may succeed where the Kyoto Protocol failed. Finally, Chander discusses the policy recommendations his framework generates, including a global agreement to support development of cleaner technologies on a global scale.
