  • 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

    Rs. 2,590.00

    Jordan B. Peterson

     

    • The #1 Sunday Times bestseller
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2018)

     

    Genuinely extraordinary… Unmatched by any other modern thinker ... A prophet for our times — Dominic Sandbrook ― Daily Mail

     

    A wonderful psychologist — Malcolm Gladwell

     

    Peterson has become a kind of secular prophet who, in an era of lobotomised conformism, thinks out of the box … His message is overwhelmingly vital –– Melanie Philips ― The Times

     

    The most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now ― New York Times

     

    In a different intellectual league… Peterson can take the most difficult ideas and make them entertaining. This may be why his YouTube videos have had 35m views. He is fast becoming the closest that academia has to a rock star ― Observer

  • Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder

    Rs. 2,890.00

    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

    A slender, potent book twining her father’s timeless philosophies of living with her own reflections — Maria Popova

     

    An inspirational commemorative for Lee aficionados and those sharpening their personal-growth skills ― Kirkus

     

    This inspired guide will remind any reader that, while one cannot control external circumstance, how one responds is always a choice. ― Publishers Weekly

    ‘Empty your mind; be formless, shapeless like water’

     

    Bruce Lee is a cultural icon, world renowned for his martial arts and film legacy. But Lee was also a deeply philosophical thinker, believing that martial arts are more than just an exercise in physical discipline – they are a perfect metaphor for personal growth.

     

    In Be Water, My Friend, Shannon Lee shares previously untold stories from her father’s life along with the concepts at the core of his teachings. Each chapter reveals a lesson from Bruce Lee, expanding on the foundation of his iconic ‘be water’ philosophy to reveal a path to an enlightened way of being.

     

    This is an inspirational call to action to consider our lives with new eyes and a testament to Lee’s unique power to ignite our imaginations and transform our lives.

  • Beyond Good And Evil

    Rs. 1,790.00

    Friedrich Nietzsche

     

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

  • Beyond Order: 12 More Rules For Life

    Rs. 2,990.00

    Jordan B. Peterson

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

  • 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.

    ‘Bristles with pure, crystalline intelligence, deep knowledge and human sympathy’ –Richard Dawkins

     

    My new favourite book of all time — Bill Gates

    Brimming with surprising data and entertaining anecdotes … a genuinely enlightening book — Jan-Werner Müller ― Financial Times

     

    In Enlightenment Now, Steven Pinker extols the amazing achievements of modernity, and demonstrates that humankind has never been so peaceful, healthy and prosperous. There is of course much to argue about, but that’s what makes this book so interesting. — Yuval Noah Harari

     

    Pinker is a paragon of exactly the kind of intellectual honesty and courage we need — David Brooks ― The New York Times

     

    In his new book, Enlightenment Now, cognitive scientist Steven Pinker makes a more convincing case for the sciences benefiting the arts ― New Scientist

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

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Will Durant

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

    Rs. 2,390.00

    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
