Written in the spirit of the reform movement that is reinvigorating the introductory majors course, Principles of Life cuts through the thicket of excessive detail and factual minutiae to focus on what matters most in the study of biology today. Students explore the most essential biological ideas and information in the context of the field’s defining experiments, and are actively engaged in analyzing research data. The result is a textbook that is hundreds of pages shorter (and significantly less expensive) than the current majors introductory books.

BOOK EXCERPT:

#1 New York Times Bestseller “Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —The New York Times Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals. In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success. In Principles, Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, Principles also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve. Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (CIO magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book, THE PRINCIPLES OF LIFE, is an in-depth venture into the complexity of life and its significance on every human being. In certain circumstances, life may be regarded as having no ideal definition due to its numerous intricacies. But to some people, life is nothing but a journey accompanied by all sorts of occurrences -including the good and the bad. And since every man must embark on this journey, he must be ready to adapt to the hurdles that may prevent him from achieving his goal.Meanwhile, this book is unveiled in the hope that every man will realize the purpose for which he exists, the various predicaments he must encounter and the need to keep his challenges within his powers.In its composition, this book may appear somewhat brief but in reality, it encompasses the vital and complex principles which guide the existence of man. Ranging from its first chapter GIVING to its ultimate chapter KEEP MOVING, this book has the magical potential of provoking thoughts and rousing man's unbending desire to work towards his goal.As contained in one of the chapters in this book, every man has a destiny which he cannot escape but can actually seek to correct. Verily, a man's destiny is what differentiates him from his colleague. And as a purposeful creature, man must learn to mend his destiny and understand that failure is what results if he chooses to evade his destiny.Also noteworthy is that this book -in its entirety -spans across the various circumstances which surround man's life. Owing to this reason, this book couldn't have deserved any befitting title other than THE PRINCIPLES OF LIFE.In general, it is hoped that with the help of this book, every single soul can realize his purpose, why difficulties surround him, the various stages he must pass through, the need to stick with one's destiny and finally, why man must persistently chase his goal despite hardship. Somewhere in this book, extreme emphasis is laid on the purpose of living in the belief that all humans exist for various purposes. However in many cases, some people hardly achieve their goals because they divert from their own paths and turn towards other people's paths. Meanwhile, various humans are born with different potentials and convincingly, this happens to be the reason why their destinies differ.Likewise, this book is an exploit considered very brief in appearance but in reality, it comprises a detailed content. With respect to this concept, this book describes a complex term [life] in a concise manner. For passionate readers, this book is undoubtedly a guide which gives insight into the understanding of some phenomena -such as SUCCESS and FAILURE -which relate significantly to man's life. After having digested this book, readers will understand the reason for failure, its impact on man's life and why man must never be scared of failing. Instead, man is strongly encouraged to flash back at his previous deeds and how they could have resulted in his failure. And to ensure his life doesn't end worthlessly, man is emboldened to maintain his dignity by confronting failure and seeking to overcome it.Moreover, this concise book emphasizes the reason why man should never rejoice to so high a degree each time he succeeds. Why this? Verily, excess joy over success easily paves the way for man to relent in the belief that success will forever knock at his door. However, success is just a guest and how well man regards it determines how long it remains with him.Also on a sagacious note, man is encouraged never to give in to abject depression each time he fails, simply because failure is nothing but an obvious opportunity to persist in a task that seems achievable but quite difficult to achieve. In this regard, man must make every futile attempt an urge to invigorate himself with new dimensions of hope.
