Впервые пожалуй за последние годы на прилавках книжных магазинов появилась фантастическая книга «целевого назначения». Книга, предназначенная прежде всего для подростков. Приключенческая фантастика и одновременно научно-популяризаторская книга. Сразу по выходу появилось и множество мнений читателей, критиков и коллег по цеху. Мнений, большинстве своем положительных. И прежде всего, положительных именно к этой второй ипостаси текста — научно-популяризаторской.

Ну, а поскольку из издательских недр уже явилась на полки книжных магазинов  вторая книга трилогии, администрация сайта обратилась к автору с предложением более тесного и прямого общения с заинтересованными читателями.

Итак, Николай Николаевич Горькавый, автор цикла «Астровитянка», отвечает на вопросы посетителей сайта. - kon28

Обложка книги On the Brink: Inside the Race to Stop the Collapse of the Global Financial System On the Brink: Inside the Race to Stop the Collapse of the Global Financial System

 Автор: Paulson Henry M


Amazon.com Review

When Hank Paulson, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, was appointed in 2006 to become the nation's next Secretary of the Treasury, he knew that his move from Wall Street to Washington would be daunting and challenging.

But Paulson had no idea that a year later, he would find himself at the very epicenter of the world's most cataclysmic financial crisis since the Great Depression. Major institutions including Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers, AIG, Merrill Lynch, and Citigroup, among others-all steeped in rich, longstanding tradition-literally teetered at the edge of collapse. Panic ensnared international markets. Worst of all, the credit crisis spread to all parts of the U.S. economy and grew more ominous with each passing day, destroying jobs across America and undermining the financial security millions of families had spent their lifetimes building.

This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime economic nightmare. Events no one had thought possible were happening in quick succession, and people all over the globe were terrified that the continuing downward spiral would bring unprecedented chaos. All eyes turned to the United States Treasury Secretary to avert the disaster.

This, then, is Hank Paulson's first-person account. From the man who was in the very middle of this perfect economic storm, On the Brink is Paulson's fast-paced retelling of the key decisions that had to be made with lightning speed. Paulson puts the reader in the room for all the intense moments as he addressed urgent market conditions, weighed critical decisions, and debated policy and economic considerations with of all the notable players-including the CEOs of top Wall Street firms as well as Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, Sheila Bair, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain, and then-President George W. Bush.

More than an account about numbers and credit risks gone bad, On the Brink is an extraordinary story about people and politics-all brought together during the world's impending financial Armageddon.

Обложка книги Our Holocaust Our Holocaust

 Автор: Gutfreund Amir


Amir and Effi collected relatives. With Holocaust survivors for parents and few other 'real' relatives alive, relationships operated under a "Law of Compression" in which tenuous connections turned friends into uncles, cousins and grandparents. Life was framed by Grandpa Lolek, the parsimonious and eccentric old rogue who put his tea bags through Selektion, and Grandpa Yosef, the neighborhood saint, who knew everything about everything, but refused to talk of his own past. Amir and Effi also collected information about what happened Over There. This was more difficult than collecting relatives; nobody would tell them any details because they weren't yet Old Enough. The intrepid pair won't let this stop them, and their quest for knowledge results in adventures both funny and alarming, as they try to unearth their neighbors' stories. As Amir grows up, his obsession with understanding the Holocaust remains with him, and finally Old Enough to know, the unforgettable cast of characters that populate his world open their hearts, souls, and pasts to him… Translated by Jessica Cohen from the Hebrew Shoah Shelanu.
