With so much of modern business and enterprise relying on the ability to reach mutually beneficial agreements the so called win win situation the modern manager needs to be able to plan deliver and follow through on critical negotiations br br This book provides the core skills needed to succeed and br Focuses on all aspects of negotiations at the senior level br Provides a framework for effective action br Develops negotiating skills to an advanced level showing managers how to achieve the best possible agreement and how to make sure it lasts, In this book Yoram Lubling and Eric Evans offer a Deweyan reconstruction of our philosophical understanding of well being They begin with Dewey s critique of the philosophical fallacy to examine the legitimacy and value of theories of well being offered by traditional philosophy However such theories fail to provide an authentic account of well being due to a false understanding of i experience i as either epistemic or cognitive Next using Dewey s theory of experience they reconstruct happiness as the target for evaluation of well being This leads them to reject the traditional view of a private encapsulated self and to offer in its place a i transactionally situated self i which is an embodied enculturated agent Through their emphasis on the importance of the qualitative aspects of Dewey s understanding of a situation the i pervasive quality of the situation i emerges as the most plausible criterion for the evaluation of well being The authors use Dewey s theories of inquiry ethics value and art to establish the naturalistic conditions under which such i pervasive quality i enters into a situation as either settled or unsettled in other words as peace in motion Consequently a i problematic situation i becomes the primary condition under which all inquiry initiates whether it is in the context of science ethics values art or ordinary living Lubling and Evans conclude that a Deweyan account of well being involves i embodied knowing i instead of the traditional view of cognitive knowledge By using such an account it is possible to explain the conditions and mechanisms under which well being contributes to the enlargement and enrichment of individual and collective human experience, No description available, Eric Evans has written a fantastic book on how you can make the design of your software match your mental model of the problem domain you are addressing His book is very compatible with XP It is not about drawing pictures of a domain it is about how you think of it the language you use to talk about it and how you organize your software to reflect your improving understanding of it Eric thinks that learning about your problem domain is as likely to happen at the end of your project as at the beginning and so refactoring is a big part of his technique The book is a fun read Eric has lots of interesting stories and he has a way with words I see this book as essential reading for software developers it is a future classic b Ralph Johnson b author of i Design Patterns i If you don t think you are getting value from your investment in object oriented programming this book will tell you what you ve forgotten to do Eric Evans convincingly argues for the importance of domain modeling as the central focus of development and provides a solid framework and set of techniques for accomplishing it This is timeless wisdom and will hold up long after the methodologies du jour have gone out of fashion b Dave Collins b author of i Designing Object Oriented User Interfaces i Eric weaves real world experience modeling and building business applications into a practical useful book Written from the perspective of a trusted practitioner Eric s descriptions of ubiquitous language the benefits of sharing models with users object life cycle management logical and physical application structuring and the process and results of deep refactoring are major contributions to our field b Luke Hohmann b author of i Beyond Software Architecture i This book belongs on the shelf of every thoughtful software developer b Kent Beck b What Eric has managed to capture is a part of the design process that experienced object designers have always used but that we have been singularly unsuccessful as a group in conveying to the rest of the industry We ve given away bits and pieces of this knowledge but we ve never organized and systematized the principles of building domain logic This book is important b Kyle Brown b author of i Enterprise Java TM Programming with IBM R WebSphere R i The software development community widely acknowledges that domain modeling is central to software design Through domain models software developers are able to express rich functionality and translate it into a software implementation that truly serves the needs of its users But despite its obvious importance there are few practical resources that explain how to incorporate effective domain modeling into the software development process b i Domain Driven Design i b fills that need This is not a book about specific technologies It offers readers a systematic approach to domain driven design presenting an extensive set of design best practices experience based techniques and fundamental principles that facilitate the development of software projects facing complex domains Intertwining design and development practice this book incorporates numerous examples based on actual projects to illustrate the application of domain driven design to real world software development Readers learn how to use a domain model to make a complex development effort more focused and dynamic A core of best practices and standard patterns provides a common language for the development team A shift in emphasis refactoring not just the code but the model underlying the code in combination with the frequent iterations of Agile development leads to deeper insight into domains and enhanced communication between domain expert and programmer b i Domain Driven Design i b then builds on this foundation and addresses modeling and design for complex systems and larger organizations Specific topics covered include br Getting all team members to speak the same language Connecting model and implementation more deeply Sharpening key distinctions in a model Managing the lifecycle of a domain object Writing domain code that is safe to combine in elaborate ways Making complex code obvious and predictable Formulating a domain vision statement Distilling the core of a complex domain Digging out implicit concepts needed in the model Applying analysis patterns Relating design patterns to the model Maintaining model integrity in a large system Dealing with coexisting models on the same project Organizing systems with large scale structures Recognizing and responding to modeling breakthroughs With this book in hand object oriented developers system analysts and designers will have the guidance they need to organize and focus their work create rich and useful domain models and leverage those models into quality long lasting software implementations
