  • Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder

    Rs. 2,390.00

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb

     

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

     

    Nassim Taleb, in his exasperating but compelling book Antifragile, praises “things that gain from disorder” – people, policies and institutions designed to thrive on volatility, instead of shattering in the encounter with it — Oliver Burkman ― Guardian

     

    More than just robust or flexible, it actively thrives on disruption — Julian Baggini ― Guardian

     

    Taleb takes on everything from the mistakes of modern architecture to the dangers of meddlesome doctors and how overrated formal education is. . . . An ambitious and thought-provoking read . . . highly entertaining ― Economist

     

    [Taleb] writes as if he were the illegitimate spawn of David Hume and Rev. Bayes, with some DNA mixed in from Norbert Weiner and Laurence Sterne. . . . Taleb is writing original stuff-not only within the management space but for readers of any literature-and . . . you will learn more about more things from this book and be challenged in more ways than by any other book you have read this year. Trust me on this ― Harvard Business Review

     

    What sometimes goes unsaid about Taleb is that he’s a very funny writer. Taleb has a finely tuned BS detector, which he wields throughout the book to debunk pervasive yet pernicious ideas. . . . Antifragility isn’t just sound economic and political doctrine. It’s also the key to a good life ― Fortune

  • Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street

    Rs. 2,290.00

    John Brooks

     

    “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.

  • Capital in the Twenty-First Century

    Rs. 3,990.00

    Thomas Piketty

    • An Amazon #1 Bestseller
    • Wall Street Journal #1 Bestseller
    • USA Today Bestseller
    • Sunday Times Bestseller

    • Winner of the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2014
    • 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

  • Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About The World – And Why Things Are Better Than You Think

    • Irish Times bestseller
    • Guardian bestseller *

     

    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

     

    Factfulness … , a light-hearted but data-rich book, calibrates our view of the world and explains how our cognitive processes can lead us astray — Steven Pinker ― New Statesman, The best books of 2018

     

    A powerful antidote to pervasive pessimism and populist untruths. — Andrew Rawnsley ― Observer, Book of the Year

     

    A wonderful guide to an improving world, as well as being a well-stocked source of sound advice as to how to think about factual and statistical claims . . . The book is a pleasure to read – simple, clear, memorable writing – and when you’ve finished you’ll be a lot wiser about the world. You’ll also feel rather happier . . . Factfulness – the relaxing peace of mind you get when you have a clearer view of how the world really is . . . I strongly recommend this book. — Tim Harford

     

    Hans Rosling tells the story of “the secret silent miracle of human progress” as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly. — Melinda Gates

     

    Factfulness has the power to shift your entire perspective. If you want to understand the world, read it now! — Rolf Dobelli

     

    Factfulness is a fabulous read, succinct and lively. It asks why so many people – including Nobel laureates and medical researchers – get the numbers so wrong on pressing issues such as poverty, pandemics and climate change… a just tribute to this book and the man would be a global day of celebration for facts about our world. — Jim O’Neill ― Nature

     

    It was such a hopeful book – it’s about why society is better off than we think and how many of the problems we think exist, don’t — Talita von Fürstenberg ― Vogue

  • Farmageddon: The True Cost Of Cheap Meat

    Rs. 1,990.00

    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

  • Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb

     

    “[Taleb is] Wall Street’s principal dissident. . . . [Fooled By Randomness] is to conventional Wall Street wisdom approximately what Martin Luther’s ninety-nine theses were to the Catholic Church.” –Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker

     

    “Fascinating . . . Taleb will grab you.” –Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk

     

    “Recalls the best of scientist/essayists like Richard Dawkins . . . and Stephen Jay Gould.” –Michael Schrage, author of Serious Play

     

    “We need a book like this . . . fun to read, refreshingly independent-minded.” –Robert J. Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance

    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

    Rs. 2,190.00

    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.

     

    Tamal Bandyopadhyay chronicles HDFC Bank’s own digital disruption exercise through the very people who drove it, narrating a story that’s as compelling as unique in India’s financial system. With his keen eye for detail, deep knowledge of banking and unparalleled storytelling ability, Bandyopadhyay recounts the journey of India’s most valued lender from a life cycle bank to a lifestyle bank.

  • 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

  • How the World Really Works: A Scientist’s Guide to Our Past, Present and Future

    Rs. 3,990.00

    Vaclav Smil

     

    • INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

     

    “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

  • Into the Minds of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger

    Rs. 1,790.00

    Daniel Pecaut with Corey Wrenn

     

    A Remarkable retelling of the lessons, wisdom, and investment strategies handed down personally from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to shareholders.

     

    “Seasoned investors, as well as Buffett fans, will find plenty of value in this storehouse of financial counsel. A rare view into the mind of Warren Buffett.” ―Kirkus Reviews

     

    “For 25 years, I have religiously read Daniel and Corey’s annual commentaries about Berkshire Hathaway. I know of no keener observers on what has made Berkshire such a wonderful wealth-builder. I also know of no investment firm that cares more about their clients than their firm, Pecaut and Company. You can’t help but learn valuable lessons by reading this book.” ―Jonathan Brandt, Research Analyst, Ruane, Cunniff & Goldfarb 

     

    “Since Buffett and Munger always expressed themselves candidly and clearly, once you’ve read Daniel and Corey’s copious notes, you’ll understand Berkshire’s extraordinary approach to investing. This book is a true gem.”  ―Jean-Marie Eveillard, Senior Adviser, First Eagle Investment Management

     

    “Having attended nearly every Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting since 1985, I know first-hand that these notes cover every base Buffett and Munger have touched. University of Berkshire Hathaway is a unique gateway inside these legendary meetings. This book will be a resource for generations.”  ―Daniel P. Boyle, President, Schwerin Boyle Capital Management

     

    “I’m impressed. I’ve attended quite a few Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meetings but this book filled in the gaps for those I haven’t attended and better still, it underscored any number of valuable insights Buffett and Munger have provided more than once. What’s more, because it covers so many years, it shows how they’ve learned and changed and how they haven’t been afraid to fess up to mistakes. All in all, a fascinating look at two extraordinary investors who unselfishly share their many talents and who educate by putting on a very entertaining show in Omaha every spring.”―Randy Cepuch, Author of A Weekend with Warren Buffett

  • Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgement

    Rs. 3,490.00

    Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony & Cass R. Sunstein

     

    The Sunday Times bestseller

     

    From the world-leaders in strategic thinking and the multi-million copy bestselling authors of Thinking Fast and Slow and Nudge, the next big book to change the way you think.

     

    The gold standard for a behavioral science book is to offer novel insights, rigorous evidence, engaging writing, and practical applications. It’s rare for a book to cover more than two of those bases, but Noise rounds all four—it’s a home run. Get ready for some of the world’s greatest minds to help you rethink how you evaluate people, make decisions, and solve problems.”―Adam Grant, author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

     

    “Noise completes a trilogy that started with Thinking, Fast and Slow and Nudge. Together, they highlight what all leaders need to know to improve their own decisions, and more importantly, to improve decisions throughout their organizations. Noise reveals a critical lever for improving decisions, not captured in much of the existing behavioral economics literature. I encourage you to read Noise soon, before noise destroys more decisions in your organization.”―Max H. Bazerman, author of Better, Not Perfect

     

    “The influence of Noise should be seismic, as it explores a fundamental yet grossly underestimated peril of human judgment. Deepening its must-read status, it provides accessible methods for reducing the decisional menace.”―Robert Cialdini, author of Influence and Pre-Suasion

     

    “Choices matter. Unfortunately, many of the choices people make are fundamentally flawed by the presence of noise, the subject of this absolutely fascinating and essential book. It is deeply researched, thoughtful, and accessible. I began it with a sense of intrigue and concluded it with a sense of celebration. We can make better choices in business, politics, and our personal lives. This book lights the way.”―Rita McGrath, author of Seeing Around Corners

     

    “Brilliant! Noise goes deep on an under-appreciated source of error in human judgment: randomness. The story of noise has lacked the charisma of the story of cognitive bias…until now. Kahneman, Sibony, and Sunstein bring noise to life, making a compelling case for why we should take random variation in human judgment as seriously as we do bias and offering practical solutions for reducing noise (and bias) in judgment.”
    Annie Duke, author of Thinking in Bets

     

    Noise may be the most important book I’ve read in more than a decade. A genuinely new idea so exceedingly important you will immediately put it into practice. A masterpiece.”―Angela Duckworth, author of Grit

     

    “In Noise, the authors brilliantly apply their unique and novel insights into the flaws in human judgment to every sphere of human endeavor: from moneyball coaches to central bankers to military commanders to heads of state. Noise is a masterful achievement and a landmark in the field of psychology.“―Philip E. Tetlock, coauthor of Superforecasting

     

    “The earth has been so fully explored that scientists can’t possibly discover a previously unknown mammal the size of an elephant. The same could be said about the landscape of decision-making, yet Kahneman, Sibony, and Sunstein have discovered a problem as large as an elephant: noise. In this important book they show us why noise matters, why there’s so much more of it than we realize, and how to reduce it. Implementing their advice would give us more profitable businesses, healthier citizens, a fairer legal system, and happier lives.”―Jonathan Haidt, NYU Stern School of Business

     

    Noise is an absolutely brilliant investigation of a massive societal problem that has been hiding in plain sight.”―Steven Levitt, coauthor of Freakonomics

     

    “A tour de force of scholarship and clear writing.”―New York Times

     

    “Well-researched, convincing and practical book . . . written by the all-star team . . . The details and evidence will satisfy rigorous and demanding readers, as will the multiple viewpoints it offers on noise. Every academic, policymaker, leader and consultant ought to read this book. People with the power and persistence required to apply the insights in Noise will make more humane and fair decisions, save lives, and prevent time, money and talent from going to waste.”―Robert Sutton, Washington Post

  • Open: How Collaboration and Curiosity Shaped Humankind

    Rs. 2,690.00

    Johan Norberg

     

    • AN ECONOMIST BOOK OF THE YEAR

     

    “No person or society is smart enough or wise enough or noble enough to solve the wicked problems of life by themselves. With clarity and grace, Johan Norberg reminds us that openness to things and ideas from others is the only route to well-being..” –Steven Pinker, author, Enlightenment Now

     

    “If we are to recover from the pandemic of 2020, the world needs openness more than ever: open minds, open hearts, open communications, open markets. Johan Norberg’s superb book demonstrates, with hundreds of examples, how openness has been the key to the success of our species over 10,000 years and is the secret of prosperity and peace today.” –Matt Ridley, author, The Rational Optimist

     

    “Johan Norberg has a great story to tell: how, throughout history, open societies have always closed down, but never for good. The tension between closed and open, between trading and tribalism drives both progress and reaction. Why are the virtues and benefits of openness always under threat? We can’t live without it, yet too often it seems that we can’t live with it either. Norberg has a powerful argument to give us insight and hope that man’s curiosity and imagination is unstoppable.” –Margaret Heffernan, author, Beyond Measure

     

    “Norberg reminds us that every great civilization has been destroyed by the end of openness. His essential book, then, is a timely reminder that the fate of our civilization rests on a defense of openness. Strongly recommended.” –Andrew Keen, author, The Internet Is Not The Answer

     

    Clearcolourful and convincing, marshalling evidence from a range of eras and civilisations. […] The author is often amusing as well as illuminating. ― The Economist

     

    Norberg has a strong case and he makes it with energy and charm. A pertinent book for grumpy times. ― The Times on Progress

    What makes a nation great? Is it simply economic prosperity and military strength — or something more? What is it that we as a nation require to make that last-mile journey to what all the plans, investments and projects are meant to lead up to?

     

    It is only a matter of time before India is termed economically developed. But a nation has to learn to survive in tough times too. And for that what is most important is national character, born out of the value systems that exist in our families, what schools teach students, and the culture of the nation.

Abdul Kalam shifts focus from the economic development of India by 2020 to the development of our strengths, offering key lessons that will help India withstand the forces of change. He identifies what makes a nation great and also compares the standards of living of other nations with India’s. He draws on his travels and his interactions with people.

    A thinker for uncertain times. . . If you want to better understand populism, Trump, Brexit and the anti-establishment backlash then Taleb, of no party or clique, is your man — Josh Glancy ― Sunday Times

     

    A great iconoclast. . . Taleb, a Wall Street trader turned essayist, is a thinker touched by genius. . . The big picture he presents is powerfully argued and offers myriad policy implications — Matthew Syed ― The Times

     

    The most prophetic voice of all . . . Taleb is a genuinely significant philosopher . . . someone who is able to change the way we view the structure of the world through the strength, originality and veracity of his ideas alone — John Gray ― GQ

     

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb is the Richard Wagner of uncertainty. While the Ring Cycle of the German composer/librettist portrayed the struggle of the gods in a series of operas, the Incerto series of books by the Lebanese-American author is devoted to humans — specifically how we deal with the endemic risk in our all-too-finite existence — Dominic Lawson ― Sunday Times

     

    The author of The Black Swan is back with a simple warning: don’t buy what your neighbour is selling unless he owns some too. The obvious application for this is investing, but Taleb has a much broader domain. In a kind of philosophical Freakonomics, he takes us from 5th-century wandering monks (banned by the church because they were too free) to Donald Trump (his imperfections showed he had skin in the game) — Rosamund Urwin ― Sunday Times Books of the Year

     

    As always with Taleb, this is a fascinating set of ideas. And he’s right. People with skin in the game learn how the game works. Without it, they don’t — William Leith ― Evening Standard

  • Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Fareed Zakaria

     

    Since the end of the Cold War, the world has been shaken to its core three times. 11 September 2001, the financial collapse of 2008 and – most of all – Covid-19. Each was an asymmetric threat, set in motion by something seemingly small, and different from anything the world had experienced before. Lenin is supposed to have said, ‘There are decades when nothing happens and weeks when decades happen.’ This is one of those times when history has sped up.

     

    In this urgent and timely book, Fareed Zakaria, one of the ‘top ten global thinkers of the last decade’ (Foreign Policy), foresees the nature of a post-pandemic world: the political, social, technological and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. In ten surprising, hopeful ‘lessons’, he writes about the acceleration of natural and biological risks, the obsolescence of the old political categories of right and left, the rise of ‘digital life’, the future of globalization and an emerging world order split between the United States and China. He invites us to think about how we are truly social animals with community embedded in our nature, and, above all, the degree to which nothing is written – the future is truly in our own hands.

     

    Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World speaks to past, present and future, and will become an enduring reflection on life in the early twenty-first century.

    • A Wall Street Journal and National Bestseller!

     

    “Rickards…makes the important point that depressions are as much psychological as numeric…Intriguing policy recommendation…sound advice to investors on how to structure a portfolio to deal with both the threat of deflation and inflation…a bracing collection of salvos…with many genuine insights, which make it an enjoyable book to argue with. Let’s just hope that the next 30 years are less bleak than Mr Rickards expects.” The Financial Times

     

    The man who predicted the worst economic crisis in US history shows you how to survive it.

     

    The current crisis is not like 2008 or even 1929. The New Depression that has emerged from the COVID pandemic is the worst economic crisis in U.S. history. Most fired employees will remain redundant. Bankruptcies will be common, and banks will buckle under the weight of bad debts. Deflation, debt, and demography will wreck any chance of recovery, and social disorder will follow closely on the heels of market chaos. The happy talk from Wall Street and the White House is an illusion. The worst is yet to come.

     

    But for knowledgeable investors, all hope is not lost.

     

    In The New Great Depression, James Rickards, New York Times bestselling author of Aftermath and The New Case for Gold, pulls back the curtain to reveal the true risks to our financial system and what savvy investors can do to survive — even prosper — during a time of unrivaled turbulence. Drawing on historical case studies, monetary theory, and behind-the-scenes access to the halls of power, Rickards shines a clarifying light on the events taking place, so investors understand what’s really happening and what they can do about it.

     

    A must-read for any fans of Rickards and for investors everywhere who want to understand how to preserve their wealth during the worst economic crisis in US history.

  • The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin

    Rs. 2,690.00

    Steven Lee Myers

     

    “Steven Lee Myers’s The New Tsar is not the first biography of Putin, but it is the strongest to date. Judicious and comprehensive, it pulls back the veil… from one of the world’s most secretive leaders. What is most striking, given the aura of steely consistency that Putin cultivates, is how he has changed over the years…. The great strength of Myers’s book is the way it shows how chance events and Putin’s own degeneration gradually cleared the path to the Ukraine crisis… Putin emerges as neither a KGB automaton, nor the embodiment of Russian historical traditions, nor an innocent victim of Western provocations and NATO’s hubris, but rather as a flawed individual who made his own choices at crucial moments and thereby shaped history.” —Daniel Treisman, The Washington Post 

     

    “What Steven Lee Myers gets so right in The New Tsar, his comprehensive new biography — the most informative and extensive so far in English — is that at bottom Putin simply feels that he’s the last one standing between order and chaos… What Myers offers is the portrait of a man swinging from crisis to crisis with one goal: projecting strength… A knowledgeable and thorough biography… Putin himself now represents the chaos he so abhors — the chaos that will surely come in his wake.” —Gal Beckerman, The New York Times Book Review

     

    “Combining skilled story telling, psychological examination and political investigation, Steven Lee Myers succeeds brilliantly in this biography of Vladimir Putin. Explaining the dangers that Putin’s Russia may and does pose, Myers effortlessly and expertly guides the reader through the complexities of the Russian Byzantine governing style and the country’s politics and identity. In the end, the book provides one of the most comprehensive answers to a puzzling question: Despite all the changes that Russia has gone through during communism and post-communism, why is it still an empire of the tsar?” —Nina Khrushcheva

     

    “Personalities determine history as much as geography, and there is no personality who has had such a pivotal effect on 21st century Europe as much as Vladimir Putin. The New Tsar is a riveting, immensely detailed biography of Putin that explains in full-bodied, almost Shakespearean fashion why he acts the way he does.” –Robert D. Kaplan

     

    “The reptilian, poker-faced former KGB agent, now Russian president seemingly for life, earns a fair, engaging treatment in the hands of New York Times journalist Myers… [who] clearly knows his material and primary subject… Putin used the perks of power to create a complex system of cronyism and nepotism. Myers shows how Putin convinced everyone that this way of operating was part of the Russian soul and how he perpetuated it through an archaic form of Russian corruption… Myers astutely notes how Putin’s speeches increasingly harkened back to the worst period of the Cold War era’s dictates by Soviet strongmen… A highly effective portrait of a frighteningly powerful autocrat.”  Kirkus (starred review)

  • The Nutmeg’s Curse: Parables for a Planet in Crisis

    Rs. 2,990.00

    Amitav Ghosh

     

    What do you do when the subject matter of life on this planet seems to lack . . . life? Your read The Nutmeg’s Curse, which eschews the leaden language of climate expertise in favor of the re-animating powers of mythology, etymology, and cosmology. Ghosh challenges readers to reckon with war, empire, and genocide in order to fully grasp the world-devouring logics that underpin ecological collapse. We owe a great debt to his brilliant mind, avenging pen, and huge soul. Do not miss this book-and above all, do not tell yourself that you already know its contents, because you don’t. — Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate

     

    In this brilliant book, aflame with insight and moral power, Ghosh shows that in the history of the nutmeg lies the path to our planetary crisis, twisting through the horrors of empire and racial capitalismThe Nutmeg’s Curse brings to life alternative visions of human flourishing in consonance with the rest of nature-and reminds us how great are the vested interests that obstruct them. — Sunil Amrith, author of Unruly Waters

     

    The Nutmeg’s Curse elegantly and audaciously reconceives modernity as a centuries-long campaign of omnicide, against the spirits of the earth, the rivers, the trees, and even the humble nutmeg, then makes an impassioned argument for the keen necessity of vitalist thought and non-human narrative. With sweeping historical perspective and startling insight, Ghosh has written a groundbreaking, visionary call to new forms of human life in the Anthropocene. An urgent and powerful book. Roy Scranton, author of Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization

     

    It’s widely recognized that the climate crisis is multi-dimensional, yet American cultural conversations about it are mostly stuck in its scientific, technological, and economic dimensions. In this tour de force, Amitav Ghosh defiantly moves the conversation into the realms of history, politics, and culture, insisting that we will never resolve our planetary crisis until we acknowledge that the “great acceleration” of the past fifty years is part of a larger historical pattern of omnicide. For centuries, the dominant global powers have seen Earth–its plants, its animals, and its non-white peoples–as brute objects: mute, without agency, and available for the taking and killing. The solution to the climate crisis, Ghosh insists, is not injecting particles into the stratosphere to block the sun, or even to build a bevy of solar farms (as important as the latter is). Rather, the solution lies in re-engaging with the vital aspects of life, in all its capaciousness, and in doing so move past our long history of destruction and into true sustainability. — Naomi Oreskes

    ‘Hip and hopeful, THE TIPPING POINT is like the idea it describes: concise, elegant but packed with social power. A book for anyone who cares about how society works and how we can make it better’ — George Stephanopoulos

     

    “A wonderful page-turner about a fascinating idea that should affect the way every thinking person looks at the world.” —Michael Lewis

     

    “A fascinating book that makes you see the world in a different way.”―Fortune

     

    “Gladwell has a knack for rendering complex theories in clear, elegant prose, and he makes a charismatic tour guide.”―San Francisco Chronicle

     

    “Undeniably compelling. . . terrifically rewarding.”―Claire DedererSeattle Times

     

    “As a business how-to, The Tipping Point is truly superior, brimming with new theories on the science of manipulation.”―Aaron GellTime Out

     

    The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. This widely acclaimed bestseller, in which Malcolm Gladwell explores and brilliantly illuminates the tipping point phenomenon, is already changing the way people throughout the world think about selling products and disseminating ideas.

     

    Gladwell introduces us to the particular personality types who are natural pollinators of new ideas and trends, the people who create the phenomenon of word of mouth. He analyzes fashion trends, smoking, children’s television, direct mail, and the early days of the American Revolution for clues about making ideas infectious, and visits a religious commune, a successful high-tech company, and one of the world’s greatest salesmen to show how to start and sustain social epidemics.

    • Winner of the Wolfson Economics Prize
    • One of The Week‘s Best Business Books of 2014

     

    The Trouble with Europe by the respected economist Roger Bootle is ever so timely written in a faultlessly reasonable manner, this makes his criticisms about the EU even more powerful.”—The Times

     

    “An outstanding, grown-up account of the failures of the European Union. Bootle is certainly no little Englander, but his argument is calm, conversational, rigorous and – quite remarkably for an economist – entirely free of bafflegab. Engaging and absorbing, here is an eye-opening book that will inspire you to think through the issues clearly – without starting a saloon-bar brawl.”—The Telegraph

     

    ‘Here it is – a book for every faint-heart who thinks this country could never prosper outside the European Union. A timely and balanced analysis.’ —Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of UK

     

    ‘Few voters feel warmly about ever closer union; many would agree with Mr Bootle that this aspiration of the original Treaty of Rome should be formally ditched. The EU and the euro will get into trouble again—and the outcome next time could be even worse.’ —Economist

     

    ‘Roger Bootle perceptively analyzes what is wrong with the European Union as presently constituted, both politically and economically; what reforms are needed to make it wise for the UK to remain a member; and how we can most sensibly conduct ourselves outside the EU, should those reforms not be undertaken. It is essential background reading for any future in/out referendum.’—Rt Hon Nigel Lawson, former Chancellor of the Exchequer.

  • The Wealth of Nations

    Rs. 3,290.00

    Adam Smith

     

    “Adam Smith’s enormous authority resides, in the end, in the same property that we discover in Marx: not in any ideology, but in an effort to see to the bottom of things.”
    Robert L. Heilbroner

     

    Right from examining the division of labour, the origin and use of money and the division of stock, to the rise and progress of cities and towns after the fall of the Roman Empire, the systems of political economy and the taxes on various private revenues, Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations provides an extensive assessment of the creation of a nation’s wealth. Laying the foundation of classical political economy, this magnum opus is considered one of the best non-fiction books of all time. More than two centuries after its first publication in 1776, The Wealth of Nations continues to remain as influential as ever.

    • Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction Nominee for Longlist (2012)

     

    There have been many good books on human rationality and irrationality, but only one masterpiece. That masterpiece is Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow. Kahneman, a winner of the Nobel Prize for economics, distils a lifetime of research into an encyclopedic coverage of both the surprising miracles and the equally surprising mistakes of our conscious and unconscious thinking. He achieves an even greater miracle by weaving his insights into an engaging narrative that is compulsively readable from beginning to end. My main problem in doing this review was preventing family members and friends from stealing my copy of the book to read it for themselves…this is one of the greatest and most engaging collections of insights into the human mind I have read — William Easterly ― Financial Times

     

    This is a landmark book in social thought, in the same league as The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith and The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud — Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of ‘The Black Swan’

     

    Daniel Kahneman is one of the most original and interesting thinkers of our time. There may be no other person on the planet who better understands how and why we make the choices we make. In this absolutely amazing book, he shares a lifetime’s worth of wisdom presented in a manner that is simple and engaging, but nonetheless stunningly profound. This book is a must read for anyone with a curious mind — Steven D. Levitt, co-author of ‘Freakonomics’

     

    This book is a tour de force by an intellectual giant; it is readable, wise, and deep. Buy it fast. Read it slowly and repeatedly. It will change the way you think, on the job, about the world, and in your own life — Richard Thaler, co-author of ‘Nudge’

     

    Thinking, Fast and Slow is a masterpiece – a brilliant and engaging intellectual saga by one of the greatest psychologists and deepest thinkers of our time. Kahneman should be parking a Pulitzer next to his Nobel Prize — Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of ‘Stumbling on Happiness’, host of the award-winning PBS television series ‘This Emotional Life’

     

    A terrific unpicking of human rationality and irrationality – could hardly have been published at a better moment. Kahnemann is the godfather of behavioural economics, and this distillation of a lifetime’s thinking about why we make bad decisions – about everything from money to love – is full of brilliant anecdote and wisdom. It is Kahnemann’s belief that anyone who thinks they know exactly what is going on hasn’t understood the question; as such it’s the perfect gift for opinionated family members everywhere. — Tim Adams ― Observer Books of the Year

    “You will have three reasons to love this book. It’s about national income differences within the modern world, perhaps the biggest problem facing the world today. It’s peppered with fascinating stories that will make you a spellbinder at cocktail parties—such as why Botswana is prospering and Sierra Leone isn’t. And it’s a great read. Like me, you may succumb to reading it in one go, and then you may come back to it again and again.” Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the bestsellers Guns, Germs, and Steel and Collapse

     

    “For economics and political-science students, surely, but also for the general reader who will appreciate how gracefully the authors wear their erudition.”Kirkus Reviews

     

    Why Nations Fail is a wildly ambitious work that hopscotches through history and around the world to answer the very big question of why some countries get rich and others don’t.” The New York Times (Chrystia Freeland)

     

    Why Nations Fail is a splendid piece of scholarship and a showcase of economic rigor.” —The Wall Street Journal

     

    “This is an intellectually rich book that develops an important thesis with verve. It should be widely read.” —Financial Times

     

    Why Nations Fail is a truly awesome book. Acemoglu and Robinson tackle one of the most important problems in the social sciences—a question that has bedeviled leading thinkers for centuries—and offer an answer that is brilliant in its simplicity and power. A wonderfully readable mix of history, political science, and economics, this book will change the way we think about economic development. Why Nations Fail is a must-read book.” Steven Levitt, coauthor of Freakonomics

     

    “Some time ago a little-known Scottish philosopher wrote a book on what makes nations succeed and what makes them fail. The Wealth of Nations is still being read today. With the same perspicacity and with the same broad historical perspective, Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson have retackled this same question for our own times. Two centuries from now our great-great- . . . -great grandchildren will be, similarly, reading Why Nations Fail.” George Akerlof, Nobel laureate in economics, 2001

     

    “It’s the politics, stupid! That is Acemoglu and Robinson’s simple yet compelling explanation for why so many countries fail to develop. From the absolutism of the Stuarts to the antebellum South, from Sierra Leone to Colombia, this magisterial work shows how powerful elites rig the rules to benefit themselves at the expense of the many.  Charting a careful course between the pessimists and optimists, the authors demonstrate history and geography need not be destiny. But they also document how sensible economic ideas and policies often achieve little in the absence of fundamental political change.”Dani Rodrik, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
