  • 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.

  • 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

     

    “If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work in a hotbed of innovation, you’ll enjoy this inside view of life at 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)

  • Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build their Business and Influence and How You Can, Too

    Rs. 2,790.00

    Gary Vaynerchuk

     

    “Gary is a masterful entrepreneur with a gift for communication that cuts through all the bullshit that can often hinder one’s success. We share the same simplistic business philosophy which is why we’ve become good friends: Be willing to put in the hard work. And always be grateful. Crushing It! is a must-have for all individuals who want to be the best at what they do.” — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

     

    “The name GaryVee has become synonymous with motivating an entire generation. No one understands the power of social media better than Gary, because none of what he preaches is theory—it’s an understanding born from his deep experience in business and in life.” — Casey Neistat

     

    “Gary is helping to calibrate the desires and expectations of a new generation searching for a way to break through the noise. He’s loud, he’s high energy—and he’s exactly right.” — John Mayer

     

    Vaynerchuk identifies the most important components that contribute to successful online marketing in a personable, lively way. Going beyond simple “how-to” guides for the various platforms, he gets at the heart of what it takes to succeed in a competitive environment. Recommended for anyone looking to get started online or increase their media currency. — Laurel Tacoma, Fairfax Cty. P.L., VA

     

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

     

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

     

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

    • An instant Wall Street Journal Bestseller

  • Farmageddon: The True Cost Of Cheap Meat

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Philip Lymbery

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

     

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

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

    Rs. 2,390.00

    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
