Mieux se reconnaître en tant que surdoué dans le monde du travail pour mieux y évoluer. Le fait d’être surdoué ne disparaît pas plus aux portes de sortie de l’enfance qu’à celles de l’entrée dans le monde professionnel. Quand certains surdoués y réussissent brillamment, réalisant ainsi leur haut potentiel intellectuel, d’autres y mènent des carrières « ordinaires », dans la norme, d’autres enfin y sont confrontés à des échecs récurrents qui les minent et les empêchent d’avancer. Pour ceux qui se heurtent plus ou moins violemment à une norme sociale professionnelle qui ne leur est pas familière, le quotidien est souvent fait d’incompréhensions, de malentendus et de non-dits qui nourrissent une insatisfaction chronique, quand ce n’est pas pire. Pourtant, la part de diversité d'approches ou de regards et le « décalage » qu’apportent les surdoués dans le monde du travail peuvent constituer un réel atout. Se fondant sur les recherches effectuées aux Pays-Bas et aux États-Unis, ainsi que sur des témoignages d’adultes surdoués, ce livre est destiné aux surdoués qui souhaitent optimiser leur parcours professionnel ou mieux comprendre pourquoi ils s'y sentent parfois mal. En bref : 1. Les surdoués face au monde du travail. 2. La recherche d’un emploi (Fonctionnement des entreprises et profils attendus, Fonctionnement des surdoués et attentes professionnelles). 3. Le quotidien en entreprise (Introversion vs sociabilisation, rapport au temps, émotions et raison, idéalisme et pragmatisme, tall poppy syndrom ou obligation de « rentrer dans les cases »). 4. Quand la crise survient (harcèlement, burn out, bore out, licenciement). 5. Quelques conseils.

The Peter Principle
Author: Dr. Laurence J. Peter, Raymond Hull
Publisher: Harper Collins
The classic #1 New York Times bestseller that answers the age-old question Why is incompetence so maddeningly rampant and so vexingly triumphant? The Peter Principle, the eponymous law Dr. Laurence J. Peter coined, explains that everyone in a hierarchy—from the office intern to the CEO, from the low-level civil servant to a nation’s president—will inevitably rise to his or her level of incompetence. Dr. Peter explains why incompetence is at the root of everything we endeavor to do—why schools bestow ignorance, why governments condone anarchy, why courts dispense injustice, why prosperity causes unhappiness, and why utopian plans never generate utopias. With the wit of Mark Twain, the psychological acuity of Sigmund Freud, and the theoretical impact of Isaac Newton, Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull’s The Peter Principle brilliantly explains how incompetence and its accompanying symptoms, syndromes, and remedies define the world and the work we do in it.
Our brightest, most creative children and adults are often being misdiagnosed with behavioral and emotional disorders such as ADHD, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, Bipolar, OCD, or Asperger?s. Many receive unneeded medication and inappropriate counseling as a result. Physicians, psychologists, and counselors are unaware of characteristics of gifted children and adults that mimic pathological diagnoses. Six nationally prominent health care professionals describe ways parents and professionals can distinguish between gifted behaviors and pathological behaviors. ?These authors have brought to light a widespread and serious problem?the wasting of lives from the misdiagnosis of gifted children and adults and the inappropriate treatment that often follows.?

Jacques Lacan & Co
Author: Elisabeth Roudinesco
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
"Roudinesco provides a finely drawn map of the intellectual debates within French psychoanalysis, especially under the influence of the German emigrés during the 1930s and 1940s. She is a good historian, in that she provides not only a narrative history but also extensive passages from Lacan's own oral-history interviews with the various figures, so that we have not only her commentary but some flavor of the original documentation. Many of the quotes are gems."—Sander I. Gilman, Bulletin of the History of Medicine

This early work by Sigmund Freud was originally published in 1910 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Five Lectures on Psycho-Analysis' is a collection of lectures delivered by the father of psychoanalysis. Sigismund Schlomo Freud was born on 6th May 1856, in the Moravian town of Příbor, now part of the Czech Republic. He studied a variety of subjects, including philosophy, physiology, and zoology, graduating with an MD in 1881. Freud made a huge and lasting contribution to the field of psychology with many of his methods still being used in modern psychoanalysis. He inspired much discussion on the wealth of theories he produced and the reactions to his works began a century of great psychological investigation.

In the Bubble
Author: John Thackara
Publisher: MIT Press
We're filling up the world with technology and devices, but we've lost sight of an important question: What is this stuff for? What value does it add to our lives? So asks author John Thackara in his new book, In the Bubble: Designing for a Complex World. These are tough questions for the pushers of technology to answer. Our economic system is centered on technology, so it would be no small matter if "tech" ceased to be an end-in-itself in our daily lives. Technology is not going to go away, but the time to discuss the end it will serve is before we deploy it, not after. We need to ask what purpose will be served by the broadband communications, smart materials, wearable computing, and connected appliances that we're unleashing upon the world. We need to ask what impact all this stuff will have on our daily lives. Who will look after it, and how?In the Bubble is about a world based less on stuff and more on people. Thackara describes a transformation that is taking place now -- not in a remote science fiction future; it's not about, as he puts it, "the schlock of the new" but about radical innovation already emerging in daily life. We are regaining respect for what people can do that technology can't. In the Bubble describes services designed to help people carry out daily activities in new ways. Many of these services involve technology -- ranging from body implants to wide-bodied jets. But objects and systems play a supporting role in a people-centered world. The design focus is on services, not things. And new principles -- above all, lightness -- inform the way these services are designed and used. At the heart of In the Bubble is a belief, informed by a wealth of real-world examples, that ethics and responsibility can inform design decisions without impeding social and technical innovation.

Reflect, Inform, Persuade
Author: Elizabeth Rodriguez Kessler
Publisher: Longman Publishing Group
Reflect, Inform, Persuade examines the purposes for writing while demonstrating the varying processes writers employ to reach an end. The low price (~$25 net*) and practical three-part organization make Reflect, Inform, Persuade an option for a variety of interests or course objectives. Author Elizabeth Kessler hones in on three important points: improving academic writing skills; writing for various purposes, gradually moving from self to a focus on the wider world; and using materials that can be used as models for good writing.
This book explores a world where the boundaries between reality and representation have become blurred, a world where LA Law is used to train lawyers. Drawing on examples from around the globe, Nick Perry presents a fascinating and entertaining analysis of both familiar objects and situations as well as the more unusual and absurd. Meals served in British pubs, motor-cycle gangs in downtown Tokyo, Australian movies, are just some examples used by the author in his engaging exploration of modern sense of the 'unreal'. Hyperrealities also engages with well known theorists of contemporary culture, from Baudrillard and Umberto Eco to Jameson and Sartre.
