With reluctance, Seigfried accepts. Soon after, James disappears and Seigfried sets about trying to correlate the possibility of his friend’s absence, with the club.

A collection of gnomic wisdom from medieval Italy, published for the first time. Rare glimpses of an alternative worldview, the fragments collected in this anthology are based on the notations of the "segretari dell’impiccato", executors of a semi-pagan Italian tradition: When criminals were executed, specially-appointed scribes wrote down the hanged men's last words. In the belief that the dying, on the threshold between this world and the next, were privy to special wisdom, these words were collected in special tomes ("antologie dei morti") and mostly destroyed by edict of pope Leo X.
The "antologie" are presented in this bilingual edition (English/Italian) to a world in dire need of a different point of view.

A must-read for anyone interested in the future of the automobile industry, our cities, and the way we live.

Electric, autonomous and shared vehicles are beginning to transform the way we live, work, and move about in our increasingly urban environment. The impact goes well beyond the automotive industry and its suppliers.

The magnitude of the change is as significant as Gottlieb Daimler and Henry Ford’s transformation of our cities 130 years ago, when cars replaced horses. Lukas Neckermann describes a revolution that is coming much sooner than we think.
Based on countless interviews, 'The Mobility Revolution' is highly current and thoroughly researched, whilst also fun to read. It is an eye-opener to a new world that awaits us.
