Mit fulminanter Erzählfreude und einem pointensicheren Gespür für die erhellende Anekdote schildert Boris Johnson Leben und Charakter des bedeutendsten britischen Staatsmannes des 20. Jahrhunderts (1874 –1965). Fasziniert von der Einmaligkeit, dem Humor und Sprachwitz, dem Abenteurertum, den politischen und literarisch-künstlerischen Leistungen seines Helden, hat er eine ebenso kenntnisreiche wie hinreißende Liebeserklärung an Winston S. Churchill verfasst. Mit britischer Nonchalance zeigt Johnson, was die Jahrhundertgestalt Churchill jedem von uns heute noch bedeuten kann.

Er schildert stets mit einem Augenzwinkern Britanniens Weg zur Macht und lässt dabei auch die Schurken und Schwerenöter nicht aus.

Es ist großartig, 65 zu sein! Man kann sich langweilen, ohne ein schlechtes Gewissen zu haben, man kann andere Leute stundenlang aus seinem (eigentlich nicht sonderlich) bewegten Leben erzählen, ohne dass die den Mut hätten, einen zu unterbrechen (schließlich ist man jetzt eine Respektsperson!), man kann ungestraft jammern, und man kann sich überglücklich eingestehen, dass es für gewisse Dinge nun wirklich einfach zu spät ist, und die Balletttänzerinnenkarriere getrost vergessen ... Virginia Ironside beweist in ihrem neuen Buch erneut auf überzeugende und äußerst witzige Weise, dass es Spaß macht, die ewige Jugend hinter sich zu lassen!

Undercover gegen den Terror

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.

Die Formel für Glück

Mo Gawdat befasst sich schon seit Jahren mit dem Thema Glück und was dieses ausmacht. Als Entwickler und Leiter in Googles Denkfabrik, Google[X], geht er das Problem eben wie ein solcher an: Er prüft alle prüfbaren Fakten und sucht die Logik dahinter. Nach unzähligen Stunden, Büchern und Interviews konnte er tatsächlich eine Gleichung für dauerhaftes Glücklichsein aufstellen. 13 Jahre später kam der härteste Test für Gawdats Glücksalgorithmus – sein Sohn starb völlig unerwartet mit 21 Jahren. Doch die Gleichung ging auf und verhinderte, dass er und seine Familie in völlige Verzweiflung abglitten. Nach der weitestmöglichen Verarbeitung dieses Verlustes fand Mo Gawdat seine Mission: die Verbreitung der Formel, die ihm geholfen hat, sein Leid zu überwinden. Seine Formel hilft heute jedem, wieder klarer zu sehen, die richtigen Prioritäten zu setzen und so zufriedener in die Zukunft zu starten – ob privat oder im Beruf. Die Formel für Glück beantwortet somit eine der häufigsten Fragen: Was kann ich tun, um glücklicher zu werden?
