Living and Working in Switzerland

Whether you're already living or working in Switzerland or just thinking about it - this is THE BOOK for you. Forget about those glossy guide books, excellent though they are for tourists; this book was written especially with you in mind and is worth its weight in Emmental cheese (and not just the holes!). Furthermore, this fully revised and updated 15th edition is printed in colour. Living and Working in Switzerland has been written to meet the needs of anyone wishing to know the essentials of Swiss life - however long your intended stay, you'll find the information contained in this book invaluable. In contrast to the wealth of information provided by Switzerland Tourism, reliable and up-to-date information specifically intended for foreigners living and working in Switzerland isn't so easy to find - particularly in English. Our aim in publishing this book was to help fill this void and provide the comprehensive, practical information necessary for a relatively trouble-free life. You may have visited Switzerland as a tourist, but living and working there's a different matter altogether. Adjusting to a different environment and culture and making a home in any foreign country can be a traumatic and stressful experience - and Switzerland is no exception. Living and Working in Switzerland is a comprehensive handbook on a wide range of everyday subjects and represents the most up-to-date source of general information available to foreigners in Switzerland. It isn't, however, simply a catalogue of dry facts and figures, but a practical and entertaining look at life. Adjusting to life in a new country is a continuous process, and although this book will help reduce your novice phase and minimise the frustrations, it doesn't contain all the answers (most of us don't even know the right questions to ask!). What it will do, however. is help you make informed decisions and calculated judgements, instead of uneducated guesses and costly mistakes. Most importantly, it will help save you time, trouble and money, and repay your investment many times over. Although you may find some of the information a bit daunting, don't be discouraged. Most problems occur only once and fade into insignificance after a short time (as you face the next half a dozen - ). Most foreigners in Switzerland would agree that, all things considered, they love living there. A period spent in Switzerland is a wonderful way to enrich your life, broaden your horizons, and, with any luck (and some hard work) you may even make your fortune. I trust this book will help you avoid the pitfalls of life in Switzerland and smooth your way to a happy and rewarding future in your new home.

Blockchain: The Latest Beginner's Guide about C...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Blockchain and cryptocurrency mining has received a lot of attention in the past decade. Subsequently, it is, therefore, understandable that so many books, articles, and publishing have been released for public information in the past few years about the subject matter of “blockchain”. A major loophole in recent publications is that they haven’t specifically described the working process of blockchain in ways that a non-specialist can understand; this book, however, breaks down the working process of blockchain to details that anyone can understand. If you are interested in learning the intricate working processes of blockchain or you’re just looking to gather more general information, then this book is for you. Instead of searching through a plethora of books online without valuable information and getting yourself sunken into the vast abyss of nonsensical books that are sometimes too brief or too advance, this book breaks it down from the ground up. The technicality of crypto books might also cause you to lose interest totally, something which could be avoided if you found yourself a good book that discusses everything in a way that both beginners and experts can understand.Many books on blockchain and cryptocurrency generally tend to be one sided, although some may be more detailed than the others.The purpose of this book is to build a bridge between the more sophisticated books that are based on too much technicality about and the more novice-based books that only provide very little information. This breakdown also involves reduction of complex words and big terminologies to the minimum. Descriptions of terminologies were also defined objectively.The essence of writing this book was to provide a basic understanding of the in-depth basis of blockchain creation and development that is required to understand the applications and functions of blockchain, to understand the implementation of blockchain in business and enterprise, to un 1.

Can Life Prevail?
39,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With the train of civilisation hurtling at ever-increasing speed towards self-destruction, the most pressing question facing humanity in the 21st century is that of the preservation of life. Can Life Prevail?, the latest book by Finnish environmentalist Pentti Linkola, provides a radical yet firmly grounded perspective on the ecological problems threatening both the biosphere and human culture. With essays covering topics as diverse as animal rights, extinction, deforestation, terrorism and overpopulation, Can Life Prevail? for the first time makes the lucid, challenging writing of Linkola available to an English-speaking public. "By decimating its woodlands, Finland has created the grounds for prosperity. We can now thank prosperity for bringing us - among other things - two million cars, millions of glaring, grey-black electronic entertainment boxes, and many unnecessary buildings to cover the green earth. Wealth and surplus money have led to financial gambling and rampant social injustice, whereby 'the common people' end up contributing to the construction of golf courses, classy hotels, and holiday resorts, while fattening Swiss bank accounts. Besides, the people of wealthy countries are the most frustrated, unemployed, unhappy, suicidal, sedentary, worthless and aimless people in history. What a miserable exchange." Kaarlo Pentti Linkola was born in Helsinki in 1932. Having spent most of his life working as a professional fisherman, he now continues to lead a materially simple existence in the countryside. A renowned figure in Finland, since the 1960s Linkola has published numerous books on environmentalism. Today, he is among the foremost exponents of the philosophy of deep ecology.
