Over the years I've accumulated a small library (<~4000 volumes)... among these are many fine books on Cybernetics, General Systems Theory, and Systems Thinking.... Some of the books that should be considered for any 'serious' cybernetics library are covered in this lens.   There is also a section of "classics" that are available now, free, on-line that are fairly difficult to find otherwise.  Introduction to Cybernetics A classic book (W. Ross Ashby - 1956)about cybernetics that is freely available in Acrobat PDF format from the Principia Cybernetica Web which states "It explains the basic principles with ...
active citizenship goal delayed by lack of e-democracy vision
The idea of e-democracy was supposed to be that people could influence the decisions affecting them by using new technology to make their voices heard. This would create “active citizens” who would take a greater part in their local communities, leading to more consensus and harmony all round. Great idea, but in practice the idea is still very much an ideal. Reflection! without technology Did you ever try to find a book in Foyles bookshop in the days when they displayed them by publisher?

Dress for Success from Head to Toe and Improve Your Self-Image
Modern society is a success-driven one and it’s no secret that you have to dress for success to achieve positive results in your professional life.

Red plenty: lessons from the Soviet dream
1962. At the airport, Harry Palmer – not yet played by Michael Caine, not in fact even named in Len Deighton's original novel – stocks up on his reading. For the flight he buys the New Statesman and History Today. And then he adds a copy of the Daily Worker. Not just because our Harry (as we might as well call him) is a British spy, keeping up with the communist enemy, but also because Harry, unlike the uppercrust nitwits he works for, is classless and intelligent and up-to-the-minute, and so in a menacing way at this moment in the 20th century does communism seem to be, thanks to the public image of its homeland the USSR. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Self−Discipline: Why is it so Difficult?
Max had had enough and in the words of the movie "Network," he was "...mad as hell and he wasn't going to take it anymore!" Max had taken several Futures classes from some very good instructors. He had a trade plan, and he had been told that it was fairly comprehensive. He knew the importance of having a set of rules, heck, he had a whole list; good rules, too, he thought.

Financial reserves were defined as a low debt position and large amounts of cash on hand.
