  • A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future

    Rs. 2,690.00

    David Attenborough

     

    • 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

So satisfyingly sensible and thought-provoking. Read it, think about it, and then read it again. An absolute revelation. ― Professor Sue Black, bestselling author of All That Remains

  • 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

    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.

    Creative Selection: Inside Apple’s Design Process During the Golden Age of Steve Jobs

    Rs. 3,490.00

    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

     

    “I’ve literally been waiting a decade for this book. Ken Kocienda takes you inside Apple in way only a true insider, a veteran software developer, could. Creative Selection is the answer to the prayer uttered by anyone who wants to truly understand how Apple works. I couldn’t put it down.” Adam Lashinsky, New York Times bestselling author of Inside Apple

Ken Kocienda pioneered the iPhone keyboard, and this book gives a play-by-play of their creative process―from generating ideas to doing a demo for Steve Jobs.” Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of OriginalsGive and Take, and Option B (with Sheryl Sandberg)

    [A] superb memoir… Westover’s journey from a remote corner of the American west to one of the world’s grandest seats of learning is extraordinary . . . Her story, of fighting to be herself, is as old as the hills she came from, but Westover gives us such a fresh, absorbing take that it deserves to bring her own private Idaho into the bestseller lists, book groups and, eventually, cinemas. ― The Times

     

    Brilliantly recounts her journey towards knowledge and enlightenment — Blake Morrison ― Guardian

     

    Her story is remarkable, as each extreme anecdote described in tidy prose attests. That someone who grew up in her circumstances could achieve as much as she has is astonishing . . . The central tension she wrestles with throughout her book is how to be true to herself without alienating her family. Her upbringing was extraordinary, but that struggle is not. ― The Economist

    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

    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

    Ken Auletta

     

    “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

     

    “Intelligent and well researched, Auletta’s lively survey serves as an excellent primer to a brave new world.” –Publishers Weekly

    Rs. 3,990.00

    Jim Collins

     

    • Audie Award for Business/Educational (2006)

     

    ‘in this category (management books) there is nothing to touch Jim Collins… It is essential reading.’ ― Sunday Times Business Books of the Year

     

    …a must-read… ― Management Today

     

    …the biggest selling and most influential management book of the new millennium. ― Financial Times

     

    Can a good company become a great one? If so, how?

     

    After a five-year research project, Jim Collins concludes that good to great can and does happen. In this book, he uncovers the underlying variables that enable any type of organisation to make the leap from good to great while other organisations remain only good. Rigorously supported by evidence, his findings are surprising – at times even shocking – to the modern mind.

     

    Good to Great achieves a rare distinction: a management book full of vital ideas that reads as well as a fast-paced novel. It is widely regarded as one of the most important business books ever written.

    Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

    Rs. 2,390.00

    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

  • 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.

    Heart: A History

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Sandeep Jauhar

     

    • A PBS NEWSHOUR-NEW YORK TIMES BOOK CLUB PICK
    • Mail on Sunday Book of the Year
    • 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”

    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

    How Innovation Works

    Matt Ridley

     

    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

    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.

  • 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.

    No Filter: The Inside Story of how Instagram Transformed Business, Celebrity and our Culture

    Rs. 2,490.00

    Sarah Frier

     

    • Winner of the FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2020
    • One of the best books of the year according to: The Times | Fortune | Financial Times | Inc. | Economist | Newsweek

     

    “Happily—this is a book about Silicon Valley. It is a record of a single app moving through the place. And in making that record, in hewing closely to Instagram and its founders, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, while giving new texture to the Valley’s major players, like Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, Frier tells the story of how that place works….The book manages to be clear-eyed and objective about the founders and their many flaws, without sensationalizing or oversimplifying—a hard balance to strike in tech coverage right now….we need a book like this to explain what it is I’m tapping on all day. I spend hours staring at the screen, and now I have a better sense of who’s staring back.” New York Times

     

    No Filter is a vibrant play-by-play of how Instagram reached that level of influence through the business of manufacturing coolness….Frier’s version of that story is rich with details, based on hundreds of interviews including sit-downs with the app’s co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Armed with their perspective, Frier is able to draw a line between each decision the founders made and the cultural consequences….The irresistible drama of No Filter plays out between the founders and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.” —NPR

     

    “Deeply sourced….Frier delivers a compelling tale of jealousy…. The David-and-Goliath tussle is deftly interwoven by Frier with another tale: the transformation of Instagram itself, from the photo app known for its artsy filters to the creator of ‘creators.'” Financial Times

     

    “If Aaron Sorkin wants to make a sequel to the movie The Social Network, he has his source material right here. Frier, a tech journalist, was given enviable access to Instagram’s founders and other key players. The result is an inside-the-room chronicle of one of Silicon Valley’s most fascinating and fraught acquisitions. A tale of luck, smarts, and strategy, No Filter also reminds us how much business depends on personal chemistry or—in the case of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Instagram’s Kevin Systrom—the lack thereof. Just as intriguing is Frier’s clear-eyed commentary on what the rise of Instagram culture means.” Inc, Top 10 New Business Books for 2020

     

    “Successful startups in Silicon Valley are sometimes described as being akin to building a spaceship in mid-flight. With No Filter, the intrepid Sarah Frier takes you inside the spaceship that became Instagram. A deeply reported and beautifully written account of a company that has changed society, fame, culture, business, and communication—sometimes for the better and, as Frier so adeptly shows, also for the worse.” —Nick Bilton, special correspondent for Vanity Fair and author of Hatching Twitter

     

    “With No Filter, Sarah Frier has delivered a brilliant exploration of the highs and lows of human nature. The book is part business drama—packed with tales of creativity, ambition, and intrigue—and part an anthropologist’s examination of modern life. Frier’s vivid reporting and electric storytelling provide the definitive account of how Instagram turned into a cultural phenomenon and what the app’s success says about all of us.” —Ashlee Vance, author of Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future

  • 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.”

    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

    Rs. 1,990.00

    A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

     

    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.

     

    In Pathways to Greatness, A.P.J. 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. He evolves unique oaths for citizens from all walks of life to ensure that a better life becomes possible for everyone.In the book he completed just a few months before he passed away in 2015, one of India’s best-known icons writes how our nation can become a leader on the pathways to greatness.

    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2018)

     

    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

    Superb writing. Masterful . . . bears all the marks that have made Gladwell one of the most successful non-fiction authors of his generation. — Pilita Clark ― Financial Times

     

    A dazzling book . . . Gladwell is a rock star of nonfiction . . . ideas are slowly revealed until the reader arrives at a conclusion they didn’t expect.

    Tamil: A Biography

    Rs. 2,490.00

    David Shulman

     

       Spoken by eighty million people in South Asia and a diaspora that stretches across the globe, Tamil is one of the great world languages and one of the few ancient languages that survives as a mother tongue for so many speakers.

     

    David Shulman presents a comprehensive cultural history of Tamil language, literature and civilization emphasizing how Tamil speakers and poets have understood the unique features of their language over its long history. Impetuous, musical, whimsical, in constant flux, Tamil is a living entity and this is its biography.Two stories animate Shulman s narrative. The first concerns the evolution of Tamil s distinctive modes of speaking, thinking and singing.

     

    The second describes Tamil s major expressive themes, the stunning poems of love and war known as Sangam poetry and Tamil s influence as a shaping force within Hinduism. Shulman tracks Tamil from its earliest traces at the end of the first millennium BCE through the classical period, 850 to 1200 CE, when Tamil-speaking rulers held sway over southern India and into late-medieval and modern times, including the deeply contentious politics that overshadow Tamil today.

     

      Tamil is more than a language, Shulman says. It is a body of knowledge, much of it intrinsic to an ancient culture and sensibility. Tamil can mean both knowing how to love in the manner of classical love poetry and being a civilized person. It is thus a kind of grammar, not merely of the language in its spoken and written forms but of the creative potential of its speakers.

    The New Great Depression: Winners and Losers in a Post-Pandemic World

    Rs. 2,390.00

    James Rickards

     

    • 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 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

    The Origin of Species

    Rs. 2,390.00

    Charles Darwin

     

    The theory of natural selection constructed by Charles Darwin is comprised in his revolutionary work of scientific literature called the Origin of Species. This piece of work recounts his ideas on the process of evolution of living beings based on the process of natural selection and it laid down the foundation for evolutionary biology. Initially published for literary reasons, Charles Darwin’s standing in the scientific circles drew attention to its contents. Inviting criticism from religious circles for its controversial conclusion, the Origin of Species was later accepted by the experts and several theories have been built upon it as an addition to the field of evolutionary biology.

     

    The contents of the book were severely backed by Darwinian evidence, which gave it its authenticity and is now considered a pioneering work in effect for the study of modern evolution theory. The survival of the fittest is a theory every person is familiar with, as it is often used as an expression in generic situations. Charles Darwin proposed a theory that contains his views on population size and the species in general. Some of the key features of this book are the building blocks of society. Some of these are as follows: each population size remains almost the same over time, species have to struggle in order to survive and individuals belonging to the same species differ significantly. Darwin’s theory of evolution is still considered to be the best account ever given pertaining to the living being as an evolved species. Despite several modifications and rebukes, the hold of his book has not diminished.

     

    The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin was published by Fingerprint Publishing in 2013. It is available in paperback. Key Features: The Origin of Species includes several examples and accounts that led to this Darwinian school of thought besides the theory itself.

    ‘You may even find that you have the last word in arguments at home and in school, thanks to this introduction to logic and reasoning.’ —TES

     

    Some people have something to say in any conversation and can spot the hidden angles of completely unrelated problems; but how do they do it?

     

    So many books, apps, courses, and schools compete for our attention that the problem isn’t a lack of opportunity to sharpen our minds, it’s having to choose between so many options. And yet, more than two thousand years ago, the greatest thinker of Ancient Greece, Aristotle, had already discovered the blueprint of the human mind.

     

    Despite the fact that the latest cognitive science shows his blueprint to be exactly what sharpens our reasoning, subtlety of thought, and ability to think in different ways and for ourselves, we have meanwhile replaced it with a simplistic and seductive view of intelligence, education and the mind.

     

    Condensing that blueprint to six ‘secrets’, Craig Adams uncovers the underlying patterns of every discussion and debate we’ve ever had, and shows us how to be both harder to manipulate and more skilful in any conversation or debate – no matter the topic.

    ‘A particularly gripping read, written with bounce and brio. Larson pulls together vivid vignettes – some moving, some amusing, a few grim … A fine writer of narrative nonfiction history.’ Robbie Millen, Times

     

    ‘A captivating history of Churchill’s heroic year, with more than the usual emphasis on his intimates.’ Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

     

    ‘This book is peppered with eye-popping details … A deeply compelling work of history … Without resorting to heroism, it makes one long powerfully for real leadership’ Lit Hub

  • The Talent Code: Greatness isn’t Born. It’s Grown

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Daniel Coyle

     

    “I only wish I’d never before used the words ‘breakthrough’ or ‘breathtaking’ or ‘magisterial’ or ‘stunning achievement’ or ‘your world will never be the same after you read this book.’ Then I could be using them for the first and only time as I describe my reaction to Daniel Coyle’s The Talent Code. I am even willing to ‘guarantee’ that you will not read a more important and useful book in 2009, or pretty much any other year. And if all that’s not enough, it’s also ‘a helluva good read.'”—Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence

     

    “This is a remarkable—even inspiring—book. Daniel Coyle has woven observations from brain research, behavioral research, and real-world training into a conceptual tapestry of genuine importance. What emerges is both a testament to the remarkable potential we all have to learn and perform and an indictment of any idea that our individual capacities and limitations are fixed at birth.”—Dr. Robert Bjork, Distinguished Professor and Chair of Psychology, UCLA

     

    ‘Talent. You’ve either got it or you haven’t.’ Not true, actually.

     

    In The Talent Code, award-winning journalist Daniel Coyle draws on cutting-edge research to reveal that, far from being some abstract mystical power fixed at birth, ability really can be created and nurtured.

     

    In the process, he considers talent at work in venues as diverse as a music school in Dallas and a tennis academy near Moscow to demonstrate how the wiring of our brains can be transformed by the way we approach particular tasks. He explains what is really going on when apparently unremarkable people suddenly make a major leap forward. He reveals why some teaching methods are so much more effective than others. Above all, he shows how all of us can achieve our full potential if we set about training our brains in the right way.

  • The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference

    Rs. 2,490.00

    Malcolm Gladwel

     

    ‘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.

    The Trouble with Europe: Why the EU isn’t Working, How It Can be Reformed, What Could Take its Place

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Roger Bootle

     

    • 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.
