    Raising Critical Thinkers: A Parent’s Guide to Growing Wise Kids in the Digital Age

    Rs. 3,290.00
    or 3 X Rs.1,096.67 with

    Julie Bogart, Barbara Oakley

     

    “In a world where too many people think they know what isn’t so, there are few skills more vital than critical thinking and rethinking. This is the guide parents need to teach their kids to become thoughtful consumers of information.”
    –Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again

     

    A guide for parents to help children of all ages process the onslaught of unfiltered information in the digital age.

     

    Education is not solely about acquiring information and skills across subject areas, but also about understanding how and why we believe what we do. At a time when online media has created a virtual firehose of information and opinions, parents and teachers worry about how students will interpret what they read and see.

     

    Amid the noise, it has become increasingly important to examine different perspectives with both curiosity and discernment. But how do parents teach these skills to their children?

     

    Drawing on more than twenty years of experience homeschooling and developing curricula, Julie Bogart offers practical tools to help children at every stage of development to grow in their ability to explore the world around them, examine how their loyalties and biases affect their beliefs, and generate fresh insight rather than simply recycling what they’ve been taught. Full of accessible stories and activities for children of all ages, Raising Critical Thinkers helps parents nurture passionate learners with thoughtful minds and empathetic hearts.

    or 3 X Rs.796.67 with

    Carol S. Dweck

    Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

    Rs. 2,490.00
    or 3 X Rs.830.00 with

    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

    Rethink Ageing: Lessons in Ageing from the Older and Bolder Generation

    Rs. 1,790.00
    or 3 X Rs.596.67 with

    Nidhi Chawla and Reshmi Chakraborty

     

    Getting older doesn’t have to mean your life stops! Rethink Ageing brilliantly explores finding new meaning, passion and excitement at an older age. ― Dr Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers50 #1 Executive Coach and New York Times Bestselling Author

     

    Ageing is commonly associated with disease and episodes of medical care. However, Reshmi and Nidhi have offered helpful advice through Rethink Ageing to ease into active and healthy ageing. Interspersed with inspiring stories and pragmatic possibilities, the book is a handy guide peeking into the future of elderly care. ― Dr Devi Shetty, Founder and Chairman, Senior Cardiac Surgeon, Narayana Health

     

    Veena Iyer, aged sixty-six, got a degree in dance movement therapy. She is training to upgrade her skill and now runs various workshops.
    B.R. Janardan, aged eighty-seven, started running after sixty and has sixteen full marathons under his belt.

     

    These important stories illustrate the shifting narrative for ageing in India. They battle the ageism that is deep-rooted in Indian culture with fixed notions of ‘approved’ behaviour. Grandchildren? Yes. Pilgrimage? Yes. But companionship? Gasp! A second career? Why the need?

     

    India will have over 300 million senior citizens by 2050. ‘Active ageing’ has become a popular topic of conversation in urban India and is the process of developing and maintaining functional activities as one gets older. Therefore, it is no longer uncommon to meet people like Janardan or Iyer in our fast-evolving society. We have an ageing society that is living longer and adapting to nuclear families, faraway kids and amorphous social support. Urban Indians are navigating health challenges, isolation and shifting social barometers to practise active ageing, the best form of preventive healthcare. This book takes a deep dive into understanding ageing, its impact on society, and how to overcome certain ‘hurdles’. Biological age no longer defines and limits us. After all, why should age prevent us from living the lives we want to?

    Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End

    Rs. 1,790.00
    or 3 X Rs.596.67 with

    Atul Gawande

     

    • Named a Best Book of the Year by The Washington PostThe New York Times Book Review, NPR, and Chicago Tribune.

     

    “American medicine, Being Mortal reminds us, has prepared itself for life but not for death. This is Atul Gawande’s most powerful–and moving–book.” ―Malcolm Gladwell

     

    Being Mortal left me tearful, angry, and unable to stop talking about it for a week. . . . A surgeon himself, Gawande is eloquent about the inadequacy of medical school in preparing doctors to confront the subject of death with their patients. . . . it is rare to read a book that sparks with so much hard thinking.” ―Nature

     

    Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming the dangers of childbirth, injury, and disease from harrowing to manageable. But when it comes to the inescapable realities of aging and death, what medicine can do often runs counter to what it should.

     

    Through eye-opening research and gripping stories of his own patients and family, Gawande reveals the suffering this dynamic has produced. Nursing homes, devoted above all to safety, battle with residents over the food they are allowed to eat and the choices they are allowed to make. Doctors, uncomfortable discussing patients’ anxieties about death, fall back on false hopes and treatments that are actually shortening lives instead of improving them.

     

    In his bestselling books, Atul Gawande, a practicing surgeon, has fearlessly revealed the struggles of his profession. Here he examines its ultimate limitations and failures―in his own practices as well as others’―as life draws to a close. Riveting, honest, and humane, Being Mortal shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life―all the way to the very end.

    Unparenting: Sharing Awkward Truths with Curious Kids

    Rs. 1,390.00
    or 3 X Rs.463.33 with

    Reema Ahmad

     

    Through her own awkward journey as a confused single parent, Reema Ahmad explores what it means to explore newer ways of bringing up children-ways that nurture their sense of innocence and curiosity while giving them the freedom to choose their own truths. Reema invites you to hop along as she and her son, Imaad, learn to laugh and make up stories about why penises shape-shift, the mysteries of pubic hair, the magic of adolescent crushes and the confounding maze of dating and sex. Join them as they explore these mysteries and other serious topics like abuse, adult relationships, divorce and dying-issues that adults often forget to wonder at and seldom question.

     

    More than anything else, Unparenting is a vibrant, whacky testimony to a parent-child relationship where the child leads and the parent follows. Written in the form of deeply personal, engaging and often humorous essays, the book is a powerful reminder of what it feels like to be lost and misunderstood as a child, and how important it is to challenge what we think we know as parents.
