IL Y A BIEN LONGTEMPS, DANS UNE GALAXIE LOINTAINE, TRÈS LOINTAINE....
Des cendres de l'Empire s'est élevée une nouvelle menace pour la liberté : l'impitoyable Premier Ordre. Heureusement, des héros ont pris les armes, prêts à sacrifier jusqu'à leur vie pour la cause : Rey, l'orpheline chez qui la Force est si puissante, Finn, l'ancien stormtrooper qui se dresse contre ses maîtres, et Poe Dameron, l'impétueux pilote d'X-wings, ont été rassemblés par le destin pour combattre côte à côte au sein de la Résistance.
Mais Snoke, le Suprême Leader du Premier Ordre, et Kylo Ren, son bras armé, ont rassemblé des forces supérieures en nombre et déchaînent une puissance de feu dévastatrice à travers la galaxie. Face à un tel ennemi, les champions du Côté Lumineux risquent l'extinction. Leur seul espoir repose sur une légende perdue : le Maître Jedi Luke Skywalker.

For too long our lives have been dominated by the 'under one roof' Industrial Revolution model of work. That era is now over. There is no longer a reason for the daily roll call, of the need to be seen with your butt on your seat in the office. The technology to work remotely and to avoid the daily grind of commuting and meetings has finally come of age, and bestselling authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the masters of making it work at tech company 37signals. Remote working is the future - and it is rushing towards us. Remote: Office Not Required combines eye-opening ideas with entertaining narrative. It will convince you that working remotely increases productivity and innovation, and it will also teach you how to get it right - whether you are a manager, working solo or one of a team. Chapters include: 'Talent isn't bound by the hubs', 'It's the technology, stupid', 'When to type, when to talk', 'Stop managing the chairs' and 'The virtual water cooler'. Brilliantly simple and refreshingly illuminating this is a call to action to end the tyranny of being shackled to the office.
