    • Goodreads Choice Award for Science & Technology (2020)

     

    ‘Read this book to learn, but also to honour the man. We shall never see his like again.’ – Sunday Times

     

    “The eminent traveler and naturalist delivers a combination of memoir and manifesto, the first leisurely, the second earnest….Recognizing that we are at a tipping point, Attenborough is refreshingly optimistic, noting that one thing humans do well is solve problems. Anyone concerned with the planet’s ecological future will want to spend time with this excellent book.“―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

     

    In this scientifically informed account of the changes occurring in the world over the last century, award-winning broadcaster and natural historian shares a lifetime of wisdom and a hopeful vision for the future.

     

    See the world. Then make it better.

     

    I am 93. I’ve had an extraordinary life. It’s only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.

    As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world – but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day — the loss of our planet’s wild places, its biodiversity.

     

    I have been witness to this decline. A Life on Our Planet is my witness statement, and my vision for the future. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake — and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right.

     

    We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited.

     

    All we need is the will to do so.

    highly readable, personal guide to the twists and turns in unravelling ancient DNA: Krause and Trappe expertly unravel the story of ancient DNA to reveal how the new field of archaeogenetics has utterly transformed understanding of our deep past. ― Rebecca Wragg Sykes, author of Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death, and Art

     

    A Short History of Humanity is an eloquent and timely reminder that viruses and other pathogens of infectious disease are merely fellow-travellers in an epic journey that began when the first human migrants left Africa around 200,000 years ago. The solution to pandemics is not to close borders in the hope of keeping viruses out but to recognise that we are a fundamentally peripatetic species united in our shared genetic inheritance and common humanity. ― Mark Honigsbaum, author of A Pandemic Century

     

    A valuable contribution to our understanding of who we are and how we got here. ― Tim Marshall, bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography

    Mr Bryson has a natural gift for clear and vivid expression. I doubt that a better book for the layman about the findings of modern science has been written ― Sunday Telegraph

     

    A fascinating idea, and I can’t think of many writers, other than Bryson, who would do it this well. It’s the sort of book I would have devoured as a teenager. It might well turn unsuspecting young readers into scientists. And the famous, slightly cynical humour is always there ― Evening Standard

    Of course, there are people much better qualified than Bill Bryson to attempt a project of this magnitude.

  • Alexander the Great

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Philip Freeman

     

    • Society of Midland Authors Award Nominee for Biography (2012)

     

    “Freeman tells us about Alexander’s life like a novel—a remarkably interesting novel, to boot.” —Sarah Hann, The Saturday Evening Post

     

    “Fast-paced and dramatic, much like Alexander himself, this is a splendid introduction into one of the most dramatic true stories of history.” -Adrian Goldsworthy, author of Antony and Cleopatra

     

    “As racy and pacey as any novel. Here, in vivid and exciting detail, are all the familiar highlights of Alexander’s career…. Mr. Freeman’s ambition, he tells us in his introduction, was ‘to write a biography of Alexander that is first and foremost a story.’ It is one he splendidly fulfills…. A rollicking read.” -Tom Holland, The Wall Street Journal

     

    “Freeman does not hero worship Alexander, and does not paper over his subject’s many faults. At times, Alexander can seem like an almost mythic figure, but, as Freeman shows, he was all too human.” -Matthew Price, The Boston Globe

     

    “Lean, learned, and marked by good judgment on every page, Alexander the Great is also a roaring good yarn. Philip Freeman has the eye of someone who has walked in Alexander’s footsteps, and he writes with grace and wisdom.” -Barry Strauss, author of The Spartacus War and professor of history, Cornell University

     

    “The author’s love for his subject infuses this footnote-free narrative with an unfussy breeziness, and readers are sure to come away from Alexander’s story with an essential grasp of the details and understanding of his character.” -Kirkus Reviews

     

    “A well-written, chronological narrative that allows Alexander’s remarkable career and achievements to speak for themselves. . . Readers will appreciate this fine account of a man truly deserving of the title ‘Great.'” -Booklist

  • All In: How Obsessive Leaders Achieve the Extraordinary

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Robert Bruce Shaw

     

    What makes great leaders like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk extraordinary? All In shows leaders and aspiring leaders how obsession can fuel the most incredible success, but also take a toll on a leader, his or her family and work colleagues.

    Groundbreaking leaders share a passionate commitment to achieving their vision that borders and sometimes crosses the line into obsession. All In shows how obsession, if properly focused and managed, is both necessary and productive. Advances in any endeavor almost always depend on a small group of individuals who are completely consumed by the goal they’re pursuing. When these leaders and their teams are successful, everyone benefits from their singular focus and relentless drive.

    All In explores the three obsessions underlying the achievements of great leaders:

     

    • Delighting customers
    • Building great products
    • Creating an enduring company

    By taking you inside the success stories of iconic leaders, including Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Steve Jobs of Apple, author Robert Bruce Shaw shows the upside of obsession and the practices that support it. Shaw also provides insight into the dark side of obsession and its destructive potential – as illustrated in his case study of Uber during the final years of Travis Kalanick’s leadership tenure. Appealing to any reader of entrepreneurial biographies, All In shows individuals and organizations how to manage obsession’s downsides while realizing the benefits of striving to create something that truly matters.

  • Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire

    Rs. 3,290.00

    Brad Stone

     

    ‘Stone’s new volume is on its surface a business book that seeks to explain the rise of America’s most important private enterprise… Amazon Unbound is particularly valuable in explaining how the company makes money, and the day-to-day decisions that end up having a big effect on consumers… a dense, at times juicy tour of the company Bezos built.’ (Ben Smith New York Times)

     

    Fascinating and deeply researched… Stone is at his best describing Bezos’s demanding style of management… Masterful.’ (Marc Levinson Washington Post)

     

    ‘An excellent new book…Bezos emerges as the ur-billionaire of our time, the deft wielder of a fortune so vast that he and his company are becoming “perilously close to invincible”.’ (Farhad Manjoo New York Times)

     

    ‘In this vivid, anecdote-filled page-turner of a book, Stone goes deep inside a company with colossal power, one we rely on for low-cost, wonderful service, and one that also kills many businesses and jobs. With rare access to Amazon executives, readers are taken inside Amazon meetings, see up close Jeff Bezos’s brilliance but also his belligerence, understand the trade-off between impressive efficiency versus the perils of market dominance, and get an up-to-the-moment appreciation of why government is now awake to the monopoly dangers posed by digital giants like Amazon.’ (Ken Auletta, author of Googled )

     

    ‘Amazon’s reach is so extensive that it can seem easier to list the few areas of commerce that it doesn’t touch than the many it does. Stone even-handedly describes the history, expansion and major personalities of the company.’ (Curtis Sittenfeld, my favourite non-fiction books The Week)

     

    ‘There are really only a handful of writers who can craft a page-turning narrative about the most transformative business ideas. Brad Stone is one. His topic of choice – Amazon and its founder Jeff Bezos – is equal to his journalistic skill. In this book, he gives us his second must-read account of how the world’s most important company and technology titan captured not only global retail, but Washington, Hollywood, outer space and your brain.’ (Rana Foroohar, author of Makers and Takers and Don’t Be Evil )

    Really made me think about how I think — Mohsin Hamid ― Guardian

    An inspirational memoir that also rings true — Gaby Wood ― Daily Telegraph, Five Stars

     

    Obama’s memoir is a genuine page-turner, full of intimacies and reflections. . . Allied to this candour is a steeliness of purpose. It is no exaggeration to say that every page of this book is, explicitly or otherwise, a reproach to Donald Trump, and a call-to-arms to those who would defeat the 45th President and all that he stands for — Matt D’Ancona ― Evening Standard

     

    This is a rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall she’s a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life, warts and all. . . it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction, with a similar warm languid tone to Ann Patchett’s novel Commonwealth — Viv Groskop ― i, Five Stars

    This revealing memoir offers new insights into her upbringing on the south side of Chicago and the highs and lows of life with Barack Obama. . . Becoming is a 400-page expansion of this essential doctrine [‘when they go low, we go high’], without compromising a refreshing level of honesty about what politics really did to her. I have read Barack Obama’s two books so far, and this is like inserting a missing piece of reality into the narrative of his dizzying journey — Afua Hirsch ― Guardian

    I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter, not because of any seedy insight into stories I’d always wondered about, but because, armed as I was with knowledge about her career, her mannerisms, and even her elbow-heavy dancing, this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more — Kuba Shand-Baptiste ― Independent

     

    Inspiring. . . After 421 pages of Becoming, I closed the book hoping that one day she would use her formidable intelligence, humanity – and humour – to offer a more tangible vision for how America might fight the rising tides of polarisation and hate ― Financial Times

     

    Open and engaging. . . Obama writes with candour about the good times and bad ― Daily Express

     

    Of course, Becoming is Michelle Obama’s story, of how she moved from a girl on the South Side of Chicago to becoming one of the most powerful women in the world. But in the final pages of the book, Obama writes, “It’s all a process, steps along a path. Becoming requires equal parts patience and rigor.” Here, Obama is pushing us to reckon with our own becomings – to realise our own story and to have the power to tell it ― The Pool

    She’s a woman we’ve all fallen in love with because she radiates joy and wisdom, and Becoming encapsulate this perfectly. It’s also deeply honest – reading it makes you feel as though she’s your close friend opening up to you ― Red Online

    “Dr. Joe Dispenza is a doctor, a scientist, and a modern-day mystic. . . In a style that is simple, straightforward, and easy to understand, [he] has woven into a single volume the paradigm-altering discoveries of quantum science and the deep teachings that adepts of the past dedicated their entire lifetimes to master.”
    — from the foreword by Gregg BradenNew York Times best-selling author of Human by Design and The Divine Matrix

     

    Becoming Supernatural takes the idea of realizing your full potential to a crazy new level.

He’s a man on a mission, and while the idea of Becoming Supernatural is a BIG promise, this book delivers hands down!”
    — Cheryl RichardsonNew York Times best-selling author of Take Time for Your Life

     

    “In this provocative, fascinating book, Dr. Joe Dispenza shows that we are so much more than just our linear minds. As our savvy guide, Dr. Dispenza takes readers further than ordinary awareness to understand the infinite quantum field of consciousness which goes beyond the senses and beyond space and time. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to explore the extraordinary nature of consciousness and healing.”
    — Judith Orloff, M.D., author of The Empath’s Survival Guide

     

    “Dr. Joe Dispenza has a single-minded mission: to help all of us to shed the limitations of the present and reclaim the multidimensional life that we were born to lead. By underpinning deceptively simple practices with hard brain science, Dr. Joe proves that the supernatural is in fact our natural state of being—and also within our ready grasp. Fasten your seatbelts. Read this book, sample his paradigm-busting techniques, and be prepared for a wild ride into your limitless potential.”

  • Beyond Good And Evil

    Rs. 1,790.00

    Friedrich Nietzsche

     

    Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886. It draws on and expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but with a more critical and polemical approach. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. The work moves into the realm “beyond good and evil” in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

  • Beyond Order: 12 More Rules For Life

    Rs. 2,990.00

    Jordan B. Peterson

     

    “The Peterson way is a harsh way, but it is an idealistic way—and for millions of young men, it turns out to be the perfect antidote to the cocktail of coddling and accusation in which they are raised.” —DAVID BROOKS, New York Times

     

    “Jordan Peterson is universally revered—and feared—for his incredible intellect and emotional insight.” —DAVE RUBIN, host of The Rubin Report and author of Don’t Burn This Book

     

    “We live in a time when so many young (and not so young) people feel lost . . . Mr. Peterson talks about the attitudes that will help find the path. It is not a politically correct or officially approved path, but it is an intensely practical and yet heightened one: This life you’re living has meaning.” —PEGGY NOONAN, Wall Street Journal

     

    Most immediately interesting for its account of what happened to the author in the past year… All this is related with remarkable equanimity… The book contains the most lucid and touching prose Peterson has written. — James Marriott ― The Times

     

    Reliably thought-provoking, often engrossing … Peterson has a sharp eye for the vagaries of human nature, and he can be a compelling storyteller, especially when narrating his own experiences and those he has observed from life. There is a fair amount of wisdom in Beyond Order, of the kind that used to be called common sense. — Jenny McCartney ― UnHerd

     

    Part quest, part adventure, part lecture and part polemic… There’s masses of passion, masses of wisdom and a deep, deep yearning for us all to seek the beauty, truth and meaning Peterson has sometimes glimpsed and is desperate for us to find. He has had tens of thousands of letters from people who say he has helped them to find it. How many writers can say they have done that? — Christina Patterson ― Sunday Times

     

    Peterson is a deep thinker with tremendous powers of articulation and a captivating sense of wonder. A master storyteller, he draws on a multitude of sources, including his personal life, clinical practice and long marriage to enlighten readers about the fundamentals of human behavior and our civilization. Beyond Order is a call for action and self-improvement. It is a mind-blowing journey where the lessons learnt are lessons for life ― The Jerusalem Post

    International Bestseller

     

    Decrypting body language has been a fascinating subject for me. There are a number of different ‘theories’ for interpreting our common gestures. Allan Pease’s Body Language is book is a brief, well-organized and easy to understand guide book which contains the basics of non-verbal communication. With everything being explained from a practical standpoint, readers of any understanding of the subject could read the book quite easily. – Tharindu Dissanayake

     

     

    Many years ago, one of my martial arts instructors made his students read this book. At the end of the lesson he would set a chapter to read before we came back for next week’s lesson. Reading that chapter was not optional, because he would ask each student something about the homework chapter. We thought his fascination with the book was a little strange to begin with, but we quickly learned otherwise. We didn’t know it at the time, but our instructor was teaching us about situational awareness. Reading body language is a big part of situational awareness, and most instructors don’t have time (or the knowledge) to go into the fine details of the subject. This is a great book that everyone should read at least once in their lives, it’s easier to avoid trouble if you can read the moods of the people around you. – Beau Johnston

  • Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships and Lasting Happiness

    Rs. 2,990.00

    David Perlmutter, Austin Perlmutter, Kristin Loberg

     

    By showing us how to consciously rewire our brains for connection, compassion, and better decisions, Brain Wash provides a framework for reclaiming joy and health in the modern world. ― Deepak Chopra, author of Metahuman

     

    ‘Brain Wash reveals how our day-to-day decisions are deeply influenced and actively manipulated by the modern world. But more importantly, it is a powerful manual that allows each of us to reclaim control of our choices and make better decisions that will pave the way for health and happiness. While we generally know what’s best for ourselves, acting on this knowledge is a constant struggle. Brain Wash allows us to turn this knowledge into action. I highly recommend this innovative book.’ ― Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder, Amen Clinics and author of The End of Mental Illness

     

    ‘In a world where most of us are feeling rushed, tired, and burned out, Brain Wash reveals how even small changes in your lifestyle choices can dramatically improve your day, your mood, and even your life.’ ― Melissa Hartwig Urban, Whole30 Co-Founder and CEO

     

    ‘This book was a total surprise. A father and son representing entirely different generations arrive at the same conclusion: that wellness fosters connection and this creates a meaningful life. Beautifully scripted and a bit like an adventure story, I kept wanting to get to the ‘final message’ of how being well makes us more loving and lovable. This is the endpoint where well-being takes us, and this is especially critical in our disconnected digital age with its constant distractions. Do yourself a favor and get this book.’ ― ohn Ratey, MD, author of Spark

     

    ‘Inflammation, enhanced by so many influences of our modern world, dramatically reduces our ability to make good decisions and feel content. Brain Wash not only explores how this is happening, on a global scale, but also shows what we can do right now to take back control. From spending time in nature to choosing to consume one plant-based meal a day, Brain Wash provides the tools to reclaim and rebuild your brain’s ability to make better choices and allow health and happiness to flourish.’ ― Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Food and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine

     

    Brain Wash provides the tools for each of us to live a happier, more contented life. Drs. David and Austin Perlmutter engage our most current understanding of neuroscience to reveal how the brain can be functionally reconfigured to distance ourselves from pervasive negativity and welcome empathy and compassion back into our lives. The choices we make each day in terms of what we eat, how well we sleep, and even how we interact with our digital world all contribute to our worldview. And central to the Brain Wash mission is maximizing these and other choices towards seeing and creating a better world. ― Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School, and author of The Healing Self

    ‘If you want to read a book about the power of the breath, this is it!’ — Patrick McKeown, author of The Oxygen Advantage

     

    ‘A transformative book that changes how you think about your body and mind’ — Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein

     

    ‘I don’t say this often, but when I do I mean it: this book changed my life. Breath is part scientific quest, part historical insight, part Hero’s Journey, full of groundbreaking ideas, and a rollicking good read. I had no idea that the simple and intuitive act of inhaling and exhaling has taken such an evolutionary hit. As a result, I figured out why I sleep so badly and why my breathing feels so often out-of-sync. With a few simple tweaks, I fixed my breathing and fixed myself. A transformational book’ — Caroline Paul, author of The Gutsy Girl

    Tony Fadell is one of the world’s great experts in starting companies and creating insanely great products. He’s distilled his wisdom in this book, providing wildly useful mentorship in a delightfully readable set of stories.” — Walter Isaacson, author and biographer of Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, and Leonardo da Vinci

     

    “Tony Fadell has made more cool stuff than almost anyone else in the history of Silicon Valley, and in Build he tells us how. This is the most fun—and the most fascinating—memoir of curiosity and invention I’ve ever read.” — Malcolm Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of Outliers and Talking to Strangers

    “More than two decades after Warren [Buffett] lent it to me—and more than four decades after it was first published—Business Adventures remains the best business book I’ve ever read . . . Brooks’s deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then.” —Bill Gates, The Wall Street Journal

     

    “[Brooks] provides the early version of what we think of as Malcolm Gladwell–style or Freakonomics-style lessons. . . . But Brooks features another trait that modern business writers, whether James Stewart, Malcolm Gladwell, or Michael Lewis, do not. Brooks is truly willing to give up his own views to get inside the mind of all his subjects.” —National Review

     

    “The prose is superb. Reading Brooks is a supreme pleasure. His writing turns potentially eye-glazing topics (e.g., price-fixing scandals in the industrial electronics market) into rollicking narratives. He’s also funny. . . . He tells entertaining stories replete with richly drawn characters, setting them during heightened moments within the world of commerce.” —Slate

  • Capital (Das Capital)

    Rs. 3,990.00

    Karl Marx

     

    Capital is a critical analysis of capitalism as political economy and how it is the precursor of the socialist mode of production. Karl Marx proposes that the motivating force of capitalism is in the exploitation of labour, whose unpaid work is the ultimate source of profit and surplus value. The employer can claim right to the profits (new output value), because he or she owns the productive capital assets (means of production), which are legally protected by the State through property rights. In producing capital (money) rather than commodities (goods and services), the workers continually reproduce the economic conditions by which they labour. Capital proposes an explanation of the “laws of motion” of the capitalist economic system, from its origins to its future, by describing the dynamics of the accumulation of capital, the growth of wage labour, the transformation of the workplace, the concentration of capital, commercial competition, the banking system, the decline of the profit rate and land-rents.

    • Winner of the British Academy Medal
    • Finalist, National Book Critics Circle Award

     

    “It seems safe to say that Capital in the Twenty-First Century, the magnum opus of the French economist Thomas Piketty, will be the most important economics book of the year―and maybe of the decade. Piketty, arguably the world’s leading expert on income and wealth inequality, does more than document the growing concentration of income in the hands of a small economic elite. He also makes a powerful case that we’re on the way back to ‘patrimonial capitalism,’ in which the commanding heights of the economy are dominated not just by wealth, but also by inherited wealth, in which birth matters more than effort and talent.”Paul KrugmanNew York Times

     

    “In its magisterial sweep and ambition, Piketty’s latest work, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, is clearly modeled after Marx’s Das Kapital. But where Marx’s research was spotty, Piketty’s is prodigious. And where Marx foresaw capitalism’s collapse leading to a utopian proletariat paradise, Piketty sees a future of slow growth and Gilded Age disparities in which the wealthy–owners of capital–capture a steadily larger share of global wealth and income…Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is an intellectual tour de force, a triumph of economic history over the theoretical, mathematical modeling that has come to dominate the economics profession in recent years. Piketty offers a timely and well-reasoned reminder that there is nothing inevitable about the dominance of human capital over financial capital, and that there is inherent in the dynamics of capitalism a natural and destabilizing tendency toward inequality of income, wealth and opportunity.”Steven PearlsteinWashington Post

     

    “Magisterial… Bursting with ideas… This book is economics at its best.”Philip RoscoeTimes Higher Education

     

    “In Capital in the Twenty-first CenturyPiketty sums up his research, tracing the history and pattern of economic inequality across a number of countries from the eighteenth century to the present, analyzing its causes, and evaluating some policy fixes. Spanning nearly 700 densely packed pages, it’s a big book in more than one sense of the word. Clearly written, ambitious in scope, rooted in economics but drawing on insights from related fields like history and sociology, Piketty’s Capital resembles nothing so much as an old-fashioned work of political economy by the likes of Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Karl Marx, or John Maynard Keynes. But what is particularly exciting about this book is that, due to advances in technology, Piketty is able to draw on data that not only spans a substantially longer historical time frame, but is also necessarily more complete and consistent than the records earlier theorists were forced to rely on. As a result, his analysis is significantly more comprehensive than those of his predecessors― and easily as persuasive… Capital is a consistently engrossing read, encompassing topics including the stunning comeback that inherited wealth has made in today’s advanced economies, the dubiousness of the economic theory that a worker’s wage is equal to his or her marginal productivity, the moral insidiousness of meritocratic justifications of inequality, and more. But the book’s major strength lies in Piketty’s ability to see the big picture. His original and rigorously well-documented insights into the deep structures of capitalism show us how the dynamics of capital accumulation have played out historically over the past three centuries, and how they’re likely to develop in the century to come… America’s twenty-first-century inequality crisis is, if anything, even more daunting and complex than the one we experienced a century ago. But as Piketty reminds us, the solutions to this problem are political, and they lie within our grasp. Should Americans choose to deploy those solutions, not only would we be doing the right thing, we’d be living up to our deepest traditions and most cherished ideals.”Kathleen GeierWashington Monthly

    Ken Kocienda

     

    • WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

     

    “Kocienda reveals the real secret of Steve Jobs’s leadership and Apple’s magic: the ability to push people to think for themselves, and to empower them to turn their best thinking into reality. It is a story about the intersection of technology and humanity.” Kim Scott, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Candor

     

    “Ken Kocienda played pivotal roles in the creation of both Safari and the original iPhone. One of the hardest problems―and biggest risks―of the first iPhone was the development of a multi-touch keyboard. I placed this formidable responsibility squarely in Ken’s hands, and the success of the keyboard emerged from his insights, collaboration, and dogged pursuit of excellence. He now offers readers, in his own words, a window into his experiences and insights from the trenches.” Scott Forstall, Original iPhone Software Team Leader and SVP iOS, Apple

     

    “I’d be interested in the behind-the-scenes story of any Apple product. But if there is one I’m most interested in, it’s the iPhone. Kocienda delivers just that, and it truly is extraordinary. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in how Apple actually creates its products.” ―John Gruber, Daring Fireball

Crushing It! is a must-have for all individuals who want to be the best at what they do.” — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Recommended for anyone looking to get started online or increase their media currency. — Laurel Tacoma, Fairfax Cty. P.L., VA

     

    “If there’s anything this book should teach you, it’s that the only thing stopping you from achieving lasting career and life happiness is you.”

     

    In his 2009 international bestseller, Crush It!, Gary insisted that a vibrant personal brand was one of the primary paths to entrepreneurial success. In Crushing It!, Gary explains why that’s even more true today, offering his unique perspective on what has changed and what remains timeless. He also shares stories from other entrepreneurs who have grown wealthier—and not just financially—than they ever imagined possible by following Crush It! principles. The secret to their success (and Gary’s) has everything to do with their understanding of social media platforms and their willingness to do whatever it takes to make these tools work to their utmost potential.

     

    Crushing It! is a state-of-the-art guide to building your own path to professional and financial success, but it’s not about getting rich. It’s a blueprint for living life on your own terms.

    Rachel Hollis sees you. As the millions who read her Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing, attend her RISE conferences and follow her on social media know, she also wants to see you transform. When it comes to the “hard seasons” of life—the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job—transformation seems impossible when grief and uncertainty dominate your days. Especially when, as Didn’t See that Coming reveals, no one asks to have their future completely rearranged for them.

     

    But, as Rachel writes, it is up to you how you come through your pain—you can come through changed for the better, having learned and grown, or stuck in place where your identity becomes rooted in what hurt you. With humor, honesty and true-life stories, in Didn’t See that Coming Rachel Hollis shares how to embrace the difficult moments in life for the learning experiences they are, and that a life well-lived is one of purpose and focused on the essentials. This is a small book about big feelings, inspirational, aspirational, and an anchor that shows that darkness can co-exist with the beautiful.

    A revolutionary writer can transform his society merely through his words. Eminence Magazine was inaugurated to empower such revolutionists with a knack for writing. Although this is our debut issue, the passion behind these pages began many years ago. As chief editors of the Majlis, we were enthralled to accept our responsibility for the Eminence, the first-ever magazine by the Muslim Majlis of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura.

     

    We are grateful to our presidents, the backbone of this great outcome, for trusting us and appointing us as the chair-persons of this initiative..

     

    Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the proofreading teams in all three languages and the design team, whose vigor has been reflected in the backdrop of the magazine. We are also indebted to our valued sponsors, without whom the magazine would not have been a tangible reality.

     

    We take this opportunity to thank the layout designer, Mr. SNM Suhail, for designing these aesthetic pages and Millennium Graphics (Pvt) Ltd. for their timely output. They customized the magazine according to our preferences, and we deeply appreciate their hard work behind these pages.

     

    The pen is mightier than the sword.”

                               -Edward Bulwer-Lytton

     

    A writer only begins where a reader ends. But the true pleasure of oneself is in comprehending the writer’s words in your own way. We believe that each word of an impactful writer has the ability to empower great personalities and uplift society in great ways.

     

    We present Eminence as a continuous bridge between our writers and readers. Our thoughts are like a fountain of knowledge. Magazines take it to the hearts of those who crave for knowledge. Eminence is happily appending to this list.

     

     We hope you find yourself in these thoughtful pages in this first edition of Eminence and in the upcoming editions as well..

     

    Thank You and Jazakallahu Khair

    “Just because everything appears to be a mess doesn’t mean you have to be one. Mark Manson’s book is a call to arms for a better life and better world and could not be more needed right now.” (Ryan Holiday, bestselling author of The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy)

    “Entertaining and thought-provoking . . . [Manson’s] dark-humored wit and blunt prose are both informative and engaging . . . Clever and accessibly conversational, Manson reminds us to chill out, not sweat the small stuff, and keep hope for a better world alive.” (Kirkus Reviews)

    A hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases. — Barack Obama

     

    One of the most important books I’ve ever read-an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world. — Bill Gates

  • Fallen Leaves: Last Words on Life, Love, War, and God

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Will Durant

     

    Praised as a “revelatory” book by The Wall Street Journal, this is the last and most personal work of Pulitzer Prize–winning author and historian Will Durant, discovered thirty-two years after his death.

     

    Fallen Leaves is in some ways a slight book. But it is also a revelatory one. Most of Durant’s work is about the thoughts and actions of others. Fallen Leaves is very much about the thoughts of Will durant concerning—well, almost everything. You’ll find short essays on childhood, old age, death, war, politics, capitalisn, art, sex, God and morality. … Above all, Fallen Leaves is a portrait of a sensibility. … Durant was a remarkable specimen of that nearly extinct species, a civilized liberal of wide learning and even wider sympathy for the fundamentals of human aspiration.” ― The Wall Street Journal

     

    “Short but persuasive commentaries on a diversity of topics from a respected scholar of humanity.” ― Kirkus Reviews

     

    “Some passages, such as his observations on youth and middle age, are personal and specific, while others, such as his ruminations on the existence of God, border on philosophy. . . . [And others] still carry a beneficial sting, such as his thoughts on war and nationalism and his plea for racial harmony (Durant’s civil rights advocacy dated back to 1914). . . . a thought-provoking array of opinions.” ― Publishers Weekly

     

    “Some of his musings are provocative, even outrageous…this is a work that demands we think, and it is a worthy conclusion to a long and distinguished career.” ― Booklist

  • Farmageddon: The True Cost Of Cheap Meat

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Philip Lymbery

     

    Lymbery brings to this essential subject the perspective of a seasoned campaigner – he is informed enough to be appalled, and moderate enough to persuade us to take responsibility for the system that feeds us ― Guardian Book of the Week

     

    This eye-opening book, urging a massive rethink of how we raise livestock and how we feed the world, deserves global recognition ― Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

     

    A devastating indictment of cheap meat and factory farming. Don’t turn away: it demands reading and deserves the widest possible audience ― Joanna Lumley

     

    This incredibly important book should be read by anyone who cares about people, the planet, and particularly, animals ― Jilly Cooper

     

    There’s no end to techno-idiocy in pursuit of profit. But far more concerning is Lymbery’s contention that the wastefulness of feeding human-edible plants and fish to animals is not just absurd but catastrophic. The main reason for hacking down the remaining South American forest is to grow soy to feed the pigs and chickens of China ― Evening Standard

     

    This meaty account makes a distinctive and important contribution, eschewing the narrowly domestic focus of many of its predecessors in favour of a global investigation … An engaging read – and it also gives a full enough picture of the situation in the UK to preclude any smugness on the part of the British reader. Anyone after a realistic account of our global food chain, and the changes necessary for a sustainable future, will find much to get their teeth into here ― Felicity Cloake, New Statesman

  • Frenemies: The Epic Disruption of the Advertising Industry (and Why This Matters)

    “Auletta works hard to get us to care about the fate of ad folks, despite our diminished interest in them or our distaste for what they do, because of their essential role as suppliers of the dollars that fuel the media ecosystem. If you “follow the money,” he writes, you’ll understand the importance of advertising and the significance of the threats against it, and maybe value it more, or at least disdain it less.” –New York Times

     

    “[A] timely dive into an industry in tumult … Auletta, a veteran New York writer who has covered both Wall Street and the media for decades, does a remarkable job of digging into the personalities and the covert deals.” –Financial Times

     

    “Now more than ever, advertising is the lifeblood that sustains most journalism, television, and entertainment. But with the advent of Google, Facebook, and other digital players, the advertising industry is being fundamentally disrupted. Ken Auletta brilliantly chronicles this drama with his usual combination of behind-the-scenes reporting filled with colorful characters, surprising revelations, and judicious insights. This riveting book shows again why Auletta is the premier reporter of our era on the fascinating and ever-changing worlds of communications and media.” –Walter Isaacson

  • From Third World to First: The Singapore Story – 1965-2000

    Rs. 4,990.00

    Lee Kuan Yew

     

    In this memoir, the man most responsible for Singapore’s astonishing transformation from colonial backwater to economic powerhouse describes how he did it over the last four decades. It’s a dramatic story, and Lee Kuan Yew has much to brag about. To take a single example: Singapore had a per-capita GDP of just $400 when he became prime minister in 1959. When he left office in 1990, it was $12,200 and rising. (At the time of this book’s writing, it was $22,000.) Much of this was accomplished through a unique mix of economic freedom and social control. Lee encouraged entrepreneurship, but also cracked down on liberties that most people in the West take for granted–chewing gum, for instance. It’s banned in Singapore because of “the problems caused by spent chewing gum inserted into keyholes and mailboxes and on elevator buttons.” If American politicians were to propose such a thing, they’d undoubtedly be run out of office. Lee, however, defends this and similar moves, such as strong antismoking laws and antispitting campaigns: “We would have been a grosser, ruder, cruder society had we not made these efforts to persuade people to change their ways…. It has made Singapore a more pleasant place to live in. If this is a ‘nanny state,’ I am proud to have fostered one.”

    Lee also describes one of his most controversial proposals: tax breaks and schooling incentives to encourage educated men and women to marry each other and have children. “Our best women were not reproducing themselves because men who were their educational equals did not want to marry them…. This lopsided marriage and procreation pattern could not be allowed to remain unmentioned and unchecked,” writes Lee. Most of the book, however, is a chronicle of how Lee helped create so much material prosperity. Anticommunism is a strong theme throughout, and Lee comments broadly on international politics. He is cautiously friendly toward the United States, chastising it for a “dogmatic and evangelical” foreign policy that scolds other countries for human-rights violations, except when they interfere with American interests, “as in the oil-rich Arabian peninsula.” Even so, he writes, “the United States is still the most benign of all the great powers…. [and] all noncommunist countries in East Asia prefer America to be the dominant weight in the power balance of the region.” From Third World to First is not the most gripping book imaginable, but it is a vital document about a fascinating place in a time of profound transition. –John J. Miller

    • The New York Times bestseller
    • Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Nominee for Longlist (2013)
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2013)

     

    Give and Take is a truly exhilarating book—the rare work that will shatter your assumptions about how the world works and keep your brain firing for weeks after you’ve turned the last page.” —Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

     

    Give and Take is brimming with life-changing insights. As brilliant as it is wise, this is not just a book—it’s a new and shining worldview. Adam Grant is one of the great social scientists of our time, and his extraordinary new book is sure to be a bestseller.” —Susan Cain, author of Quiet

     

    Give and Take cuts through the clutter of clichés in the marketplace and provides a refreshing new perspective on the art and science of success. Adam Grant has crafted a unique, ‘must have’ toolkit for accomplishing goals through collaboration and reciprocity.” —William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.

     

    “With Give and Take, Adam Grant has marshaled compelling evidence for a revolutionary way of thinking about personal success in business and in life. Besides the fundamentally uplifting character of the case he makes, readers will be delighted by the truly engaging way he makes it. This is a must read.” —Robert Cialdini, author of Influence

     

    Give and Take is a brilliant, well-documented, and motivating debunking of ‘good guys finish last’! I’ve noticed for years that generosity generates its own kind of equity, and Grant’s fascinating research and engaging style have created not only a solid validation of that principle but also practical wisdom and techniques for utilizing it more effectively. This is a super manifesto for getting meaningful things done, sustainably.” —David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

     

    “One of the great secrets of life is that those who win most are often those who give most. In this elegant and lucid book, filled with compelling evidence and evocative examples, Adam Grant shows us why and how this is so. Highly recommended!” —William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes and author of The Power of a Positive No

     

    Give and Take defines a road to success marked by new ways of relating to colleagues and customers as well as new ways of growing a business.” —Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com and author of Delivering Happiness

     

    “Adam Grant, a rising star of positive psychology, seamlessly weaves together science and stories of business success and failure, convincing us that giving is in the long run the recipe for success in the corporate world. En route you will find yourself re-examining your own life. Read it yourself, then give copies to the people you care most about in this world.” —Martin Seligman, author of Learned Optimism and Flourish

     

    “A milestone! Well-researched, generous, actionable and important. Adam Grant has given us a gift, a hard-hitting book about the efficacy of connection and generosity in everything we do.” —Seth Godin, bestselling author of The Icarus Deception and Tribes

     

    Give and Take just might be the most important book of this young century. As insightful and entertaining as Malcolm Gladwell at his best, this book has profound implications for how we manage our careers, deal with our friends and relatives, raise our children, and design our institutions. This gem is a joy to read, and it shatters the myth that greed is the path to success.” —Robert Sutton, author of The No *sshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss

  • Goals!: How to get Everything you want – Faster than you ever thought Possible

    Rs. 1,490.00

    Brian Tracy

     

    Based on more than 20 years of experience and 40 years of research, this book presents a completely updated and practical, proven strategy for creating and meeting goals that has been used by more than 1 million people already in its first edition. Author Brian Tracy again explores the seven key elements of goal setting and the 12 steps necessary to set and accomplish goals of any size.

     

    Using his trademark simple language and real-life examples, Tracy shows how to do the crucial work of determining one’s strengths, values, and true goals. He explains further how to build the self-esteem and confidence necessary for achievement; how to overpower every problem or obstacle; how to overcome difficulties; how to respond to challenges; and how to continue moving forward no matter what happens.

  • Good Habits, Bad Habits: The Science of Making Positive Changes That Stick

    Rs. 2,390.00

    Wendy Wood

     

    If you’ve ever struggled to make or break a habit, this is the book you need to read. Wendy Wood is widely recognized as the authority on the science of habits — Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

     

    Wendy Wood is the world’s foremost expert in the field, and this book is essential — Angela Duckworth, author of Grit

     

    Enlightening and insightful . . . Wood’s research and perspective on the malleability of habits will bring hope to any reader looking to create long-term behavioural change ― Publishers Weekly

     

    Wendy Wood . . . is the most thoughtful, innovative person who understands the role of habits in human behaviour . . . I can’t imagine a better person writing this book — Dan Ariely

     

    No one has studied how habits form and direct behaviour better than Professor Wendy Wood . . . She has described how to change negative habits into positive versions better than anybody. She’s the researcher best able to write the next big book on the topic — Robert Cialdini, author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

     

    Fascinating and fun, this book will change a lot of lives . . . Wood brings state-of-the-art social science into contact with the most pressing issues in daily life. She’s a tremendous guide — Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard University, and author of How Change Happens

     

    In Good Habits, Bad Habits . . . the social psychologist Wendy Wood refutes both [William] James’s determinism and glib exhortations to be proactive, and seeks to give the general reader more realistic ideas for how to break habits. Drawing on her work in the field, she sees the task of sustaining positive behaviors and quelling negative ones as involving an interplay of decisions and unconscious factors . . . Even people who score high on self-control questionnaires may owe their apparent virtue to situational factors rather than to sheer fortitude . . . This observation leads to the crux of her book’s thesis: the path to breaking bad habits lies not in resolve but in restructuring our environment in ways that sustain good behaviors. ― The New Yorker

    Angela Duckworth

     

    • JP MORGAN’S BEST SUMMER READ OF 2016
    • New York Times bestseller
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2016)

     

    In this instant New York Times bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.” “Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere” (People).

     

    Grit delves into the personal ingredients of great success. It’s worth reading…the gist is that talent and skill are less valuable than effort.” —Andrew Ross Sorkin, The New York Times

     

    “It really isn’t talent but practice—along with passion—that makes perfect, explains psychologist Duckworth in this illuminating book. Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere.” —People

     

    “[Have] no doubt: Grit is great. It’s a lucid, informative, and entertaining review of the research Angela has assiduously conducted over the past decade or so. The book also includes suggestions on how to develop grit, and how we can help support grit in others. There are few people who wouldn’t learn something from this book.” Scientific American (blog)

     

    “Duckworth is the researcher most associated with the study and popularization of grit.  And yet what I like about her new book, Grit, is the way she is pulling away from the narrow, joyless intonations of that word, and pointing us beyond the way many schools are now teaching it…Most important, she notes that the quality of our longing matters.  Gritty people are resilient and hard working, sure.  But they also, she writes, know in a very, very deep way what it is they want.” —David Brooks, New York Times

     

    “Offers invaluable lessons to business leaders, parents, recruiters, and almost anyone who wishes to have a roadmap to achieve greater levels of success.” —Forbes

    A book of big questions, and big answers‘ Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens

     

    “Artful, informative, and delightful…. There is nothing like a radically new angle of vision for bringing out unsuspected dimensions of a subject, and that is what Jared Diamond has done.” ― William H. McNeil, New York Review of Books

     

    “An ambitious, highly important book.” ― James Shreeve, New York Times Book Review

     

    “A book of remarkable scope, a history of the world in less than 500 pages which succeeds admirably, where so many others have failed, in analyzing some of the basic workings of culture process…. One of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years.” ― Colin Renfrew, Nature

     

    “The scope and the explanatory power of this book are astounding.”
    ― The New Yorker

     

    “No scientist brings more experience from the laboratory and field, none thinks more deeply about social issues or addresses them with greater clarity, than Jared Diamond as illustrated by Guns, Germs, and Steel. In this remarkably readable book he shows how history and biology can enrich one another to produce a deeper understanding of the human condition.” ― Edward O. Wilson, Pellegrino University Professor, Harvard University

     

    “Serious, groundbreaking biological studies of human history only seem to come along once every generation or so. . . . Now [Guns, Germs, and Steel] must be added to their select number. . . . Diamond meshes technological mastery with historical sweep, anecdotal delight with broad conceptual vision, and command of sources with creative leaps. No finer work of its kind has been published this year, or for many past.” ― Martin Sieff, Washington Times

     

    “[Diamond] is broadly erudite, writes in a style that pleasantly expresses scientific concepts in vernacular American English, and deals almost exclusively in questions that should interest everyone concerned about how humanity has developed. . . . [He] has done us all a great favor by supplying a rock-solid alternative to the racist answer. . . . A wonderfully interesting book.” ― Alfred W. Crosby, Los Angeles Times

     

    “An epochal work. Diamond has written a summary of human history that can be accounted, for the time being, as Darwinian in its authority.” ― Thomas M. Disch, The New Leader

  • HDFC Bank 2.0: From Dawn to Digital

    Tamal Bandyopadhyay

     

    “Tamal combines his financial knowledge, eye for detail, and an excellent storytelling style to create a vivid portrait of India’s most valued bank and its path to the future.” –NANDAN NILEKANI, Co-founder and Chairman of Infosys and Founding Chairman of UIDAI

     

    “Tamal has enthusiastically documented the epiphany that HDFC Bank’s leadership had in starting out on their digital journey. India is set for seismic changes to day-to-day banking over the next few years and banks who don’t commit to fully re-engineering their practice around becoming a technology company that delivers real-time, contextual banking experiences will wither on the vine. HDFC Bank has made a solid start on this journey, but the final chapter has not yet been written.” –BRETT KING, Founder, Moven and bestselling author of Bank 4.0

     

    The seeds of change were sown in September 2014, when HDFC Bank MD Aditya Puri went to Silicon Valley to meet the brightest tech minds in the world. By the time he got back, he knew exactly what needed to be done.

     

    It was time for a revolution. Instead of waiting to be disrupted by fintech companies, HDFC Bank went all out to disrupt itself, recasting its role and scope on a scale that has never been attempted before. In one of the biggest transformations ever undertaken in any business, HDFC Bank wants to become a platform facilitating a financial experience.

    • Science Friday Best Science Book of 2018
    • A Los Angeles Public Library Best Nonfiction Book of 2018
    • Shortlisted for the 2019 Wellcome Book Prize

     

    “The cardiologist Sandeep Jauhar has become a Dante of modern medicine, with his earlier memoirs, “Intern” (2008) and “Doctored” (2014), casting the progress from training to career as a path studded with suffering, indignity and ethical hazard. His latest book, “Heart: A History,” is something of a “Paradiso,” pointing to the field’s brightest and noblest stars while recognizing just how much darkness is still left in the firmament . . . Poignant and chattily erudite.” ―Laura Kolbe, The Wall Street Journal

     

    “Sandeep Jauhar, a New York cardiologist and the author of two medical memoirs, has written a book of unusual depth and richness about a subject that concerns us all . . . Heart: A History is elegantly conceived and still more elegantly executed, with a narrative that flits effortlessly between medieval Persia and contemporary America, medical scholarship and personal anecdote . . . Jauhar writes with a vital, pulsating energy.” Thomas Morris, The Times Literary Supplement

     

    “[Sandeep Jauhar’s] gripping new book, Heart a History, had me nearly as enthralled with this pulsating body part as [Jauhar] seems to be. The tone―a physician excited about his specialty―takes a sharp turn from his first two memoirs . . . Jauhar hooks the reader of Heart from the first few pages.” ―Randi Hutter Epstein, The New York Times Book Review

     

    “This is both a history of surgical interventions to heal the heart, and a personal meditation on illness, family, loss, and living. [Jauhar], who has lost several family members to heart disease, takes time to examine both the work of doctors trying to fix hearts and the lives of people living with heart disease, for a book that is touching and ultimately, hopeful.” ―Los Angeles Public Library, “Best of 2018”

  • Home in the World: A Memoir

    Rs. 3,190.00

    Amartya Sen

     

    it strikes me that Sen is more than an economist, a moral philosopher or even an academic. He is a life-long campaigner, through scholarship and activism, via friendships and the occasional enemy, for a more noble idea of home – and therefore of the world. — Edward Luce ― Financial Times

     

    hypnotic … Amartya Sen’s exemplary life is a lesson in engagement with the world in which he is so at home; he is a real advertisement for someone who is happy being “a citizen of nowhere”, or everywhere. — Ferdinand Mount ― Prospect

     

    Sen is so engaging, so full of charm and has such a clear gift for the graceful sentence. It’s a wonderful book, the portrait of a citizen of the world … full of its author’s beguiling personality, elegance and wit of presentation, and joyous in its celebration of the life of the mind. — Philip Hensher ― Spectator

     

    Sen’s sensibility still seems Tagorean. There is the same affinity for freedom and imagination, a similar commitment to the vulnerable and the downtrodden, but most of all a shared sense that we don’t yet know all there is to know about the world. — Abhrajyoti Chakraborty ― Guardian

     

    The clarity of Sen’s thought and the lucidity of his prose are delightful and entertaining but the lightness of his touch can often be deceptive because it sometimes conceals the depth and range of Sen’s erudition, the intensity and the passion of his commitment to certain values and ideas and his relentless quest to bring together the home and the world. — Rudrangshu Mukherjee ― The Wire India

     

    a charming, immensely readable, and very enjoyable voyage through the making of a great mind … we are just led with rare good humour and gentle wit through the formative years of his life … This is a very accessible book, “fun” to use one of Sen’s favourite words, written in beautifully constructed short sentences that explain the most profound observations with commendable brevity … It is Sen’s capacity to maintain a simple style while telling amusing stories or explaining complex issues (as he does occasionally) that is both unique and captivating … This memoir is an unforgettable story of the evolution of a thinking and enquiring and all too human a mind, as also a tribute to one who has harnessed his abundant academic talent to the needs of the humblest and poorest — Mani Shankar Aiyar ― Open the Magazine

    Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.” — Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and Slow

     

    “Thrilling to watch such a talented author trample so freely across so many disciplines… Harari’s skill lies in the way he tilts the prism in all these fields and looks at the world in different ways, providing fresh angles on what we thought we knew… scintillating.” — Financial Times

     

    “Spellbinding… This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit… It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart… It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill.” — Guardian

     

    “Harari is an intellectual magpie who has plucked theories and data from many disciplines – including philosophy, theology, computer science and biology – to produce a brilliantly original, thought-provoking and important study of where mankind is heading.” — Evening Standard (London)

     

    “I enjoyed reading about these topics not from another futurist but from a historian, contextualizing our current ways of thinking amid humanity’s long march–especially…with Harari’s ability to capsulize big ideas memorably and mingle them with a light, dry humor…Harari offers not just history lessons but a meta-history lesson.” — Washington Post

     

    “What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus.” — London Sunday Times

     

    “A remarkable book, full of insights and thoughtful reinterpretations of what we thought we knew about ourselves and our history.” — The Guardian

     

    “Provocative…the handiwork of a gifted thinker.” — Jennifer Senior, New York Times

     

    “[A] great book…not only alters the way you see the world after you’ve read it, it also casts the past in a different light. In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted & accessible manner.” — Mail on Sunday

    An insightful and charming exploration of questions that range from the truly profound (How does our species capture energy to stave off decay and death?) to the merely fascinating (Why did it take us so long to invent the wheeled suitcase?)’ — Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor, Harvard University, and author of Enlightenment Now

     

    ‘In this insightful and delightful book, Matt Ridley explores the wondrous causes of innovation, the force that drives our modern economy. He shows that it’s a team sport, but one that features many colourful stars. It’s a joy to tag along with him as he mines the history of human advances to discover nuggets of useful lessons’ –Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

     

    ‘From the Stone Age to smartphones and from farming to fission, Matt Ridley demonstrates with a plethora of examples how innovation has changed and, for the most part, improved the human condition, despite repeated resistance and frequent failure. Given the freedom of thought that innovation needs, he argues, we can ensure the survival of the planet. We abandon it or constrain it at our peril’ —Sir Tim Laurence, Chairman of English Heritage

    “A new masterpiece from one of my favorite authors… [How The World Really Works] is a compelling and highly readable book that leaves readers with the fundamental grounding needed to help solve the world’s toughest challenges.”Bill Gates

     

    “You can agree or disagree with Smil—accept or doubt his ‘just the facts’ posture—but you probably shouldn’t ignore him. . . In Smil’s provocative but perceptive view, unrealistic notions about carbon reduction are partly, and ironically, attributable to the very productivity that societies achieved by substituting machine work, powered by fossil fuels, for draft animals and human laborers.”The Washington Post

     

    “A scientific panorama of our well-being and how it can be sustained in our current tumultuous times and beyond. [Smil] aims to combat the widespread “comprehension deficit” about basic scientific facts, and he seeks to “explain some of the most fundamental ruling realities governing our survival and our prosperity.” That aim is marvelously achieved…[this is] an exceptionally lucid, evenhanded study of the scientific basis of our current and future lives.”Kirkus, STARRED review

     

    “How the World Really Works represents the highly readable distillation of this lifetime of scholarship… Mr. Smil looks over the horizon of the future with humility and calmness, foreseeing ‘a mixture of progress and setbacks, of seemingly insurmountable difficulties and near-miraculous advances.’”Wall Street Journal

    Rs. 4,290.00

    John Paul Minda

     

    Thought-provoking . . . [Minda] knows the mind like the back of his hand . . . [How to Think] is a comprehensive account of thinking and behaviour that showcases the sheer brilliance of the human brain ― Reaction

     

    This book will get you thinking about thinking.

     

    We understand more about the brain than ever before and we also have more tools than ever before to help us think. This book will show you how your brain works, how your mind works, why we all make certain mistakes in thinking and why that’s not always a bad thing.

     

    In order to understand how people behave, you need to understand how people think. And if you want to understand how people think, you need to have a basic understanding of cognitive psychology, cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience. This book explains cognition and the links between the brain, the mind and behaviour in a clear and straightforward way.

     

    Through interesting case studies and research examples, Minda shows how the brain is involved in mental activity, how memory works, how language affects thought, how good (and bad) decisions are made, and why we make predictable errors in our thinking. With practical applications for everyday life, this a book that helps us become better thinkers, better learners and better problem-solvers. In the current era of big data, algorithms and AI, Minda argues that knowing about how humans think-how you think-is more important than ever before.

  • How Will You Measure your Life?: Finding Fulfilment Using Lessons From Some of the World’s Greatest Businesses

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Clayton Christensen, James Allworth & Karen Dillon

     

    • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2012)

     

    “If you’re ready to get deep, real quick, you need to read Clay Christensen’s new book, How Will You Measure Your Life?, co-written with James Allworth, a consultant and Harvard MBA, and Karen Dillon, former editor of the Harvard Business Review. It mixes tested business theories and a heap of common sense. It’s one of the more surprisingly powerful books of personal philosophy of the 21st century.” — Forbes

     

    “How Will You Measure Your Life? is an intriguing paradox. A self-help book that is not a self-help book, based on rigorous research but enlivened by anecdotes about the experiences of a man who is hailed as a model by his students. It neatly reverses the technique of those business bestsellers that use the lives and careers of great leaders – from Attila the Hun to General George Patton – to lay down timeless rules for corporate executives.” — Financial Times

     

    “[A] highly engaging and intensely revealing work….Spiritual without being preachy, this work is especially relevant for young people embarking on their career, but also useful for anyone who wants to live a more meaningful life in accordance with their values.” –Publishers Weekly

     

    “The book encapsulates Christensen’s best advice to keep high achievers from being disrupted in their own lives….[P]rovocative but reassuring: Peter Drucker meets Mitch Albom.”  — Bloomberg Businessweek

    ‘A refreshingly simple recipe for happiness.’ Stylist

     

    Ikigai urges individuals to simplify their lives by pursuing what sparks joy for them. . . . Much in the same way that The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up emphasizes ‘choosing what we want to keep, and not what we want to get rid of,’ [Ikigai] demonstrates that aging could be an opportunity to keep working, keep smiling, keep active, and keep being social.” —KonMari Newsletter

    “Persuasively shows that small changes can help readers find more joy and purpose in their lives [with] clear, succinct information . . . skillfully compiled . . . into an engaging, easily accessible format with lists, charts, and illustrations.” —Publishers Weekly

     

    “Want to live longer? Keep super busy. If hygge is the art of doing nothing, ikigai is the art of doing something—and doing it with supreme focus and joy. . . . Pack up those cozy blankets and candles you purchased in last year’s hygge-fueled Ikea spree. Fall’s biggest imported lifestyle trend is ikigai, and it might help you live to 100.” —New York Post

     

    “Busy-ness is a concept I’m familiar with and fascinated by, especially living in New York City. . . . The Japanese concept of ikigai (the happiness of being busy) [is] attainable and even an important key to living longer.” —Mia Feitel, Elle.com

  • Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy

    Rs. 2,490.00

    Supriya Vani and Carl A. Harte

     

    The first biography to be based on interviews with Ardern and those around her

     

    ‘It takes courage to be an empathetic leader. And I think if anything the world needs empathetic leadership now, perhaps more than ever.’ Jacinda Ardern

     

    Jacinda Ardern was swept to office in 2017 on a wave of popular enthusiasm dubbed ‘Jacindamania’. In less than three months, she rose from deputy leader of the opposition to New Zealand’s highest office. Her victory seemed heroic. Few in politics would have believed it possible; fewer still would have guessed at her resolve and compassionate leadership, which, in the wake of the horrific Christchurch mosque shootings of March 2019, brought her international acclaim. Since then, her decisive handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen her worldwide standing rise to the point where she is now celebrated as a model leader. In 2020 she won an historic, landslide victory and yet, characteristically, chose to govern in coalition with the Green Party.

     

    Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy carefully explores the influences – personal, social, political and emotional – that have shaped Ardern. Peace activist and journalist Supriya Vani and writer Carl A. Harte build their narrative through Vani’s exclusive interviews with Ardern, as well as the prime minister’s public statements and speeches and the words of those who know her. We visit the places, meet the people and understand the events that propelled the daughter of a small-town Mormon policeman to become a committed social democrat, a passionate Labour Party politician and a modern leader admired for her empathy and courage.

  • Jesus Lived in India: His Unknown Life Before and After the Crucifixion

    Rs. 1,690.00

    Holger Kersten

     

    Jesus Lived In India is a book by theologian, Holger Kersten, which presents the connection that Jesus had with India. It cites evidence that Jesus lived in India for a large part of his life after the crucifixion and died there at old age. The book asks its readers the question of why Christianity chose to ignore it’s connections with the religions of the east.

     

    Historical sites traced back Jesus to Israel, the Middle East, Afghanistan, and India. According to this book, this had been found out as a result of investigative research. Many startling conclusions have been presented by Holger Kersten.

     

    Some of the allusions made by this book include statements that Jesus followed the ancient Silk Road to India and studied Buddhism there, adopting its tenets in order to become a master of spirituality. This book states that he survived the crucifixion, and after that returned to India where he finally died in Jammu & Kashmir.

     

    Key Features:

    • The book is based on research by Holger Kersten.
    • It was not well-received by the mainstream scholarship.
    • Jesus In India was originally a treatise written by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

    In Leaders Eat Last, Simon Sinek, internationally bestselling author of Start With Why, investigates these great leaders from Marine Corps Officers, who don’t just sacrifice their place at the table but often their own comfort and even their lives for those in their care, to the heads of big business and government – each putting aside their own interests to protect their teams.

  • Liftoff: Elon Musk and the Desperate Early Days That Launched SpaceX

    Rs. 2,890.00

    Eric Berger

     

    ‘Just read it.’ –Elon Musk

     

    “The elegant brilliance of the engineering that allows today’s space rockets to land themselves back on earth—or at sea—right way up, and on target to the inch, is all the doing of the teams assembled by Elon Musk—and the story of how he did it, and how for sure he will get us to Mars whether we like it or not, is told in appropriately stellar fashion by Eric Berger in a book that held me captive, in earth orbit, from prologue to epilogue, countdown to splashdown.” — Simon Winchester, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Perfectionists

     

    “A colorful page-turner.” — WALTER ISAACSON, New York Times Book Review

     

    Liftoff reads like something out of the golden age of Science Fiction but this isn’t a novel by Robert Heinlein or Arthur C. Clarke. This is the true, astounding story of the men and women who spun those sci-fi dreams into reality.” — Homer Hickam, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Rocket Boys

     

    “Eric Berger has followed the exploits of SpaceX and its founder, Elon Musk, from its very early days. In Liftoff, Eric relates the many personal accounts collected in one-on-one interviews with Musk and many of his key leaders and associates. He chronicles the frenetic pace of Falcon 1 development and the toll it took on many of the early employees. This is a book that will hold your rapt attention from start to finish.” — Charles Bolden, Former NASA Administrator and Four-Time Astronaut

     

    “Eric Berger brings to life the passion and sacrifice of the early SpaceX team as they navigated through countless obstacles toward unlikely success. The skillfully described technical details, paired with a candid glimpse into individual personalities, makes Liftoff a must read for space enthusiasts and novices alike.” — KAREN NYBERG, NASA Astronaut

     

    “This might be the best space book I’ve ever read. Liftoff will prove to be a defining story not only for the commercial space industry, but for the Space Age writ large, and there’s no one better than Eric Berger to tell it.” — KELLIE GERARDI, author of Not Necessarily Rocket Science

     

    “Compelling. … Great reading. … An essential, unofficial reference test for what to do (and not do) as space flight goes commercial. … Fascinating.” — New Scientist

     

    “Does a fine job of telling the white-knuckle story of how SpaceX was created in 2002 and came close to collapse several times.” — Financial Times

  • Lionel Messi and The Art of Living

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Andy West

     

    Lionel Messi and the Art of Living is a bold and insightful examination of a world-famous sporting hero’s career from an entirely new perspective, providing a context extending far beyond the soccer field. The idea that sports stars are role models is a cliché, but it is also true in a way that is rarely appreciated. Although the details of Messi’s story are already well known, The Art of Living examines afresh and anew his highs and lows, his successes and failures, his ongoing evolution and his endless struggle to succeed. It encourages us to consider, to analyze, and—above all—to think about Messi’s career from a different viewpoint, understanding how his journey can be related to our own lives on a meaningful and impactful level. Containing exclusive, illuminating interviews with deep thinkers and high achievers from a number of different fields, this book delivers a fresh and inspiring approach to a global icon, ensuring that you will never look at Lionel Messi—or life—in the same way again.

    “Branson wears his fame and money exceedingly well: no necktie, no chauffeur, no snooty clubs. . . . What continues to set Branson apart is the unique — and, to some, baffling — nature of his ambition. . . . He isn’t interested in power in the usual sense of influencing other people. . . . Boiled down to its singular essence, Richard Branson just wants to have fun.” — Newsweek

     

    “Richard Branson . . . is dressed to the nines: in a $10,000 white silk bridal gown with a traditional veil and train and acres of lace. . . . Branson is expected to do the unexpected, even the bizarre — anything to publicize his latest venture. . . . The fact is, Branson’s widely reported stunts seem almost staid compared to the unconventional way he manages his burgeoning empire.” — Forbes
