Computerpionier Brian W. Kernighan war in der Entwicklung von UNIX beteiligt. In diesem lebendig illustrierten Buch erzählt er eine umfassende Geschichte des äußerst einflussreichen und weit verbreiteten Betriebssystems von den Anfängen bis zur heutigen Bedeutung. Kernighan leistete fast von Anfang an aktive Beiträge. Sein persönliches Miterleben der Entwicklung und die persönlichen Anekdoten von seinen damaligen Wegbegleitern verleihen dem Buch einen großen Wert. Kernighan schafft eine gelungene Balance zwischen »offizieller Geschichte« und seinem eigenen Engagement bei der Entwicklung von UNIX. Er erklärt überzeugend, warum gerade UNIX und sein Ökosystem einen Siegeszug in die Server dieser Welt antreten konnten.

A captivating history of the universe -- from before the dawn of time through the far reaches of the distant future. Most historians study the smallest slivers of time, emphasizing specific dates, individuals, and documents. But what would it look like to study the whole of history, from the big bang through the present day -- and even into the remote future? How would looking at the full span of time change the way we perceive the universe, the earth, and our very existence? These were the questions David Christian set out to answer when he created the field of "Big History," the most exciting new approach to understanding where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. In Origin Story, Christian takes readers on a wild ride through the entire 13.8 billion years we've come to know as "history." By focusing on defining events (thresholds), major trends, and profound questions about our origins, Christian exposes the hidden threads that tie everything together -- from the creation of the planet to the advent of agriculture, nuclear war, and beyond. With stunning insights into the origin of the universe, the beginning of life, the emergence of humans, and what the future might bring, Origin Story boldly reframes our place in the cosmos.

A Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year: “Uniformly excellent” stories about our relationships with each other and with the treacherous natural world (Publishers Weekly). In the title story, a man and woman travel across an eerily frozen lake—under the ice. “The Distance” casts a skeptical eye on Thomas Jefferson through the lens of a Montana man’s visit to Monticello. “Eating” begins with an owl being sucked into a canoe and ends with a man eating a town out of house and home, and “The Cave” is a stunning story of a man and woman lost in an abandoned mine. Other stories include “The Fireman,” “Swans,” “The Prisoners,” “Presidents’ Day,” “Real Town,” and “Two Deer.” Each is remarkable in its own way, sure to please both new readers and avid fans of Rick Bass’s passionate, unmistakable voice. “Bass focuses a naturalist’s eye not only on the frozen lakes and interplay of predator and prey often found in his work but also on the ebb and flow of human emotions and relationships . . . Thought-provoking and entertaining, these stories move along quickly but continue to resonate long after the reader is done; several have been anthologized in award collections.” —Library Journal “Beautiful in their magical imagery, dramatic in their situations, and exquisitely poignant in their insights, these stories of awe and loss are quite astonishing in their mythic use of place and the elements of earth, air, fire, and water.” —Booklist “Bass puts his talent as a nature writer to terrific use.” —The New York Times Book Review “Bass’s language glistens with the beauty of the landscapes he evokes.” —San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"Told is about the art of storytelling not the science. It celebrates the emotional rather than the rational. Great business, brands, fashion, art, film, advertising and design are brilliantly told stories. Told explains through words and pictures the importance of story and the universal role it plays as the secret of success. Reading Told and understanding the Twenty Principles of Storytelling will unlock the most amazing creative tool within you and open you up to a whole new world of possibilities."--Jacket.
