The key to good and efficient writing lies in the intelligent organisation of ideas and notes. This book helps students, academics and nonfiction writers to get more done, write intelligent texts and learn for the long run. It teaches you how to take smart notes and ensure they bring you and your projects forward. <br />The Take Smart Notes principle is based on established psychological insight and draws from a tried and tested note-taking-technique. This is the first comprehensive guide and description of this system in English, and not only does it explain how it works, but also why. It suits students and academics in the social sciences and humanities, nonfiction writers and others who are in the business of reading, thinking and writing. <br />Instead of wasting your time searching for notes, quotes or references, you can focus on what really counts: thinking, understanding and developing new ideas in writing. It does not matter if you prefer taking notes with pen and paper or on a computer, be it Windows, Mac or Linux. And you can start right away.

<p>From the bestselling author of <em>How to Read Literature Like a Professor </em>comes this essential primer to reading poetry like a professor that unlocks the keys to enjoying works from Lord Byron to the Beatles.</p><p>No literary form is as admired and feared as poetry. Admired for its lengthy pedigree鈥攁 line of poets extending back to a time before recorded history鈥攁nd a ubiquitous presence in virtually all cultures, poetry is also revered for its great beauty and the powerful emotions it evokes. But the form has also instilled trepidation in its many admirers mainly because of a lack of familiarity and knowledge. <br /><br />Poetry demands more from readers鈥攊ntellectually, emotionally, and spiritually鈥攖han other literary forms. Most of us started out loving poetry because it filled our beloved children's books from Dr. Seuss to Robert Louis Stevenson. Eventually, our reading shifted to prose and later when we encountered poetry again, we had no recent experience to make it feel familiar. But reading poetry doesn鈥檛 need to be so overwhelming. In an entertaining and engaging voice, Thomas C. Foster shows readers how to overcome their fear of poetry and learn to enjoy it once more. </p><p>From classic poets such as Shakespeare, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Edna St. Vincent Millay to later poets such as E.E. Cummings, Billy Collins, and Seamus Heaney, <em>How to Read Poetry Like a Professor</em> examines a wide array of poems and teaches readers:</p><ul><li>How to read a poem to understand its primary meaning.</li><li>The different technical elements of poetry such as meter, diction, rhyme, line structures, length, order, regularity, and how to learn to see these elements as allies rather than adversaries.</li><li>How to listen for a poem鈥檚 secondary meaning by paying attention to the echoes that the language of poetry summons up.</li><li>How to hear the music in poems鈥攁nd the poetry in songs!</li></ul><p>With <em>How to Read Poetry Like a Professor</em>, readers can rediscover poetry and reap its many rewards. <br /><br /><br /></p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><strong></strong><p><strong></strong>聽</p>

<b>Something is going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and afraid to speak honestly. How did this happen?</b><br /> 聽<br /> First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: what doesn鈥檛 kill you makes you weaker; always trust your feelings; and life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths are incompatible with basic psychological principles, as well as ancient wisdom from many cultures. They interfere with healthy development. Anyone who embraces these untruths鈥攁nd the resulting culture of safetyism鈥攊s less likely to become an autonomous adult able to navigate the bumpy road of life. <br /> 聽<br /> Lukianoff and Haidt investigate the many social trends that have intersected to produce these untruths. They situate the conflicts on campus in the context of America鈥檚 rapidly rising political polarization, including a rise in hate crimes and off-campus provocation. They explore changes in childhood including the rise of fearful parenting, the decline of unsupervised play, and the new world of social media that has engulfed teenagers in the last decade. <br /> 聽<br /> This is a book for anyone who is confused by what is happening on college campuses today, or has children, or is concerned about the growing inability of Americans to live, work, and cooperate across party lines.

<b>In this instant <i>New York Times </i>bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls 鈥済rit.鈥?鈥淚nspiration for non-geniuses everywhere鈥?(<i>People</i>).</b><br /><br />The daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of 鈥済enius,鈥?Angela Duckworth is now a celebrated researcher and professor. It was her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience that led to her hypothesis about what really drives success: not genius, but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.<br /> <br /> In <i>Grit</i>, she takes us into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she鈥檚 learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers鈥攆rom JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to <i>New Yorker</i> cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.<br /> <br /> 鈥淒uckworth鈥檚 ideas about the cultivation of tenacity have clearly changed some lives for the better鈥?(<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>). Among <i>Grit</i>鈥檚 most valuable insights: any effort you make ultimately counts <i>twice </i>toward your goal; grit can be <i>learned</i>, regardless of IQ or circumstances; when it comes to child-rearing, neither a warm embrace nor high standards will work by themselves; how to trigger lifelong interest; the magic of the Hard Thing Rule; and so much more. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, <i>Grit</i> is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how<i> that</i>鈥攏ot talent or luck鈥攎akes all the difference.
