Catel et Bocquet retracent le destin de la fascinante Joséphine Baker dans un magnifique roman (bio)graphique tout en noir et blanc. En 500 pages, les auteurs nous dévoilent toutes les facettes de cette femme emplie de convictions : muse de nombreux artistes, militante contre la ségrégation raciale, agent du contre-espionnage de la France Libre, mère adoptive d’une douzaine d’enfants venus d’horizons divers… elle était décidément bien plus qu’une danseuse de cabaret affublée d’une ceinture de bananes...
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a classic of the business genre, and a worldwide bestseller. It's easy to see why: Stephen R. Covey has written a book which is simple yet persuasive, and demonstrates clearly that it's possible for all of us to become more effective whilst expending less time and energy. He moves the reader from dependence, to independence, then interdependence (when others rely on him or her).
Covey looks at each of the habits in turn, explaining why they are necessary, and how to develop them. One should always be proactive, for example, keep the end goal in sight, and prioritise. Everyone should begin with private victories, then move on to public ones and then work to synergise all parts of their life to create something that is more than the sum of its parts.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is based on a compelling premise: that we will succeed more in life if we decide to effect change first within ourselves, then project that change out, rather than let circumstances control us. Covey encourages the reader to be in charge of his or her own life: a message that's inspiring and motivating.
