Matthew Reilley: »Mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch ist Jurassic Park, und das hat mich inspiriert.« Reilly schreibt Action-Thriller mit fantastischen Elementen. Dazu Wikipedia: »Reilly ist bekannt für seinen Schreibstil, der sich, wie kaum ein anderer zuvor, auf Actionszenen im Stil von Hollywood konzentriert und dadurch Dramatik und die Entwicklung der Charaktere erst als zweite Priorität behandelt. Seine Kritiker verurteilen dies und verweisen darauf, dass er Bücher schreibt, die wie Filme zu lesen sind oder gar an die Beschreibung eines Action-Videospiels erinnern. Seine Fans sind der Meinung, dass dies der Grund ist, der seine Bücher so einzigartig und aufregend macht.«

A Master Chief story and original full-length novel set in the Halo universe—based on the New York Times bestselling video game series! 2526. It has been a year since humanity engaged in its destructive first contact with a theocratic military alliance of alien races known as the Covenant. Now the hostilities have led to open war, and the United Nations Space Command understands virtually nothing about its new enemy. There are only two certainties—the Covenant is determined to eradicate humanity, and they have the superior technology to do just that. The UNSC’s only hope lies with the Spartans: enhanced supersoldiers raised and trained from childhood via a clandestine black ops project to be living weapons. Their designated commander, Petty Officer John-117, has been assigned to lead the Spartans on a desperate counterattack designed to rock the Covenant back on its heels, and to buy humanity the time it needs to gather intelligence and prepare its defenses. But not everyone wants the Spartans to succeed. A coalition of human insurrectionist leaders believes an alliance with the Covenant to be its best hope of finally winning independence from the Unified Earth Government. To further their plans, the insurrectionists have dispatched a sleeper agent to sabotage the UNSC counterattack—and ensure that John-117 and the Spartans never return from battle....

Der Halo Effekt

Author: Phil Rosenzweig
Publisher: GABAL Verlag GmbH
ISBN: 9783897497894
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Business & Economics

Tagtäglich analysieren Management-Gurus, Consultants und prominente Wirtschaftslenker das Geschehen an der Börse, loben die Weitsichtigkeit und den Erfolg eines neuen CEOs, proklamieren eine weitere Erfolgstheorie oder geben Tipps, wie man die Konkurrenz garantiert überholen kann. Aber was davon ist gesichertes Wissen und was sind bestenfalls vage Thesen? In seinem wegweisenden und unkonventionellen Buch legt Phil Rosenzweig den Finger auf die eklatantesten Denkfehler. Der folgenreichste Irrtum ist der Halo-Effekt. Steigen Umsatz und Gewinn eines Unternehmens, ist die Versuchung groß, dahinter eine brillante Strategie, eine visionäre Führungspersönlichkeit, besonders fähige Mitarbeiter oder eine außergewöhnliche Unternehmenskultur zu vermuten. Lässt die Performance nach, stehen schon bald die verfehlte Strategie, der arrogante Führungsstil, die unengagierten Mitarbeiter oder die uninspirierte Unternehmenskultur am Pranger. Dabei hat sich kaum etwas verändert –außer die Wahrnehmung. Rosenzweigs brillant geschriebenes Buch verzichtet auf jeden unnötigen Fachjargon. Sein erfrischend direkter Schreibstil richtet sich an eine breite Leserschaft aus der Welt der Wirtschaft und der Unternehmen. Führungskräfte, die zwischen Sein und Schein unterscheiden wollen, kommen um die Lektüre dieses Buches nicht herum.
