    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. 2,390.00

    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

    Shannon Lee

     

    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

    Bruce Lee’s daughter illuminates her father’s most powerful life philosophies, and how we can apply his teachings to our daily lives

     

    ‘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.

    My new favourite book of all time — Bill Gates

     

    Pinker is right. Not just a bit right, but completely, utterly, incontrovertibly right … for most people, life is better, even if they don’t realise it — Dominic Sandbrook ― Daily Mail

     

    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

    “[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

    **THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER**

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

    Wellcome Book Prize Nominee for Longlist (2017)

     

    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 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

  • How Will You Measure your Life?: Finding Fulfilment Using Lessons From Some of the World’s Greatest Businesses

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Clayton Christensen, James Allworth & Karen Dillon

     

    • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
    • Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Nonfiction (2012)

     

    “If you’re ready to get deep, real quick, you need to read Clay Christensen’s new book, How Will You Measure Your Life?, co-written with James Allworth, a consultant and Harvard MBA, and Karen Dillon, former editor of the Harvard Business Review. It mixes tested business theories and a heap of common sense. It’s one of the more surprisingly powerful books of personal philosophy of the 21st century.” — Forbes

     

    “How Will You Measure Your Life? is an intriguing paradox. A self-help book that is not a self-help book, based on rigorous research but enlivened by anecdotes about the experiences of a man who is hailed as a model by his students. It neatly reverses the technique of those business bestsellers that use the lives and careers of great leaders – from Attila the Hun to General George Patton – to lay down timeless rules for corporate executives.” — Financial Times

     

    “[A] highly engaging and intensely revealing work….Spiritual without being preachy, this work is especially relevant for young people embarking on their career, but also useful for anyone who wants to live a more meaningful life in accordance with their values.” –Publishers Weekly

     

    “The book encapsulates Christensen’s best advice to keep high achievers from being disrupted in their own lives….[P]rovocative but reassuring: Peter Drucker meets Mitch Albom.”  — Bloomberg Businessweek

  • Ikigai: The Japanese secret to a long and happy life

    Rs. 1,990.00

    Hector Garcia & Francesc Miralles

     

    THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

     

    ‘Ikigai gently unlocks simple secrets we can all use to live long, meaningful, happy lives. Warm, patient, and kind, this book pulls you gently along your own journey rather than pushing you from behind.’ –Neil Pasricha, bestselling author of The Happiness Equation

     

    ‘A refreshingly simple recipe for happiness.’ Stylist

     

    Ikigai urges individuals to simplify their lives by pursuing what sparks joy for them. . . . Much in the same way that The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up emphasizes ‘choosing what we want to keep, and not what we want to get rid of,’ [Ikigai] demonstrates that aging could be an opportunity to keep working, keep smiling, keep active, and keep being social.” —KonMari Newsletter

     

    “Discovering your ikigai, or passion, can be one of the greatest journeys you will embark on.” —Forbes

     

    “A must-follow lifestyle hack, ikigai makes hygge look like a trip to Ikea. . . . Think feng shui with Venn diagrams—although this time there is no need to move the front door.” —The Guardian

     

    “Persuasively shows that small changes can help readers find more joy and purpose in their lives [with] clear, succinct information . . . skillfully compiled . . . into an engaging, easily accessible format with lists, charts, and illustrations.” —Publishers Weekly

     

    “Want to live longer? Keep super busy. If hygge is the art of doing nothing, ikigai is the art of doing something—and doing it with supreme focus and joy. . . . Pack up those cozy blankets and candles you purchased in last year’s hygge-fueled Ikea spree. Fall’s biggest imported lifestyle trend is ikigai, and it might help you live to 100.” —New York Post

     

    “Busy-ness is a concept I’m familiar with and fascinated by, especially living in New York City. . . . The Japanese concept of ikigai (the happiness of being busy) [is] attainable and even an important key to living longer.” —Mia Feitel, Elle.com

    There is philosophy for school and philosophy for life. This book is about the lives of men and women who lived their words and shows you how to do the same. — Thomas Tull, founder of Legendary Entertainment

     

    With its emphasis on individual success and perseverance, stoicism is seeing an American renaissance. The authors offer brief instructional biographies of its major ancient practitioners. ― New York Times

    “Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman have achieved something remarkable with Lives of the Stoics.

  • Meditations

    Rs. 1,790.00

    Marcus Aurelius

     

    “Here, for our age, is [Marcus’s] great work presented in its entirety, strongly introduced and freshly, elegantly translated.” —Robert Fagles

     

    Nearly two thousand years after it was written, Meditations remains profoundly relevant for anyone seeking to lead a meaningful life.

     

    Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180). A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remains as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.

     

    In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in thirty-five years—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. In fresh and unencumbered English, Hays vividly conveys the spareness and compression of the original Greek text. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.

     

    With an Introduction that outlines Marcus’s life and career, the essentials of Stoic doctrine, the style and construction of the Meditations, and the work’s ongoing influence, this edition makes it possible to fully rediscover the thoughts of one of the most enlightened and intelligent leaders of any era.

    • The International Bestseller

    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

    “Some authors give advice. Ryan Holiday distills wisdom. This book is a must read for anyone feeling overwhelmed by the frenetic demands of modern life.” —Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of Digital Minimalism

     

    “Ryan Holiday is among the most psychologically wise writers I know. I’m a fan of all of his work, including this new gem, Stillness is the Key. If you struggle—as I do—to find your center in the increasingly noisy and frenetic world we live in, then this book is for you.” —Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit

     

    “In the world today the dangers are many—most notably, the endless distractions and petty battles that make us act without purpose or direction. In this book, through his masterful synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophy, Ryan Holiday teaches us all how to maintain our focus and presence of mind amid the sometimes overwhelming conflicts and troubles of 21st-century life.” —Robert Greene, bestselling author of  The 48 Laws of Power

     

    “Ryan Holiday is a national treasure and a master in the field of self-mastery. In his most compelling book yet, he has mined both the classical literature of the ancient world and cultural touchstones from Mister Rogers to Tiger Woods, and brought his learnings to us in terms that the frantic, distracted, over-caffeinated modern mind can understand and put to use. Highly recommended.”
    —Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of The War of Art

    Paulo Coelho’s new book is inspired by his own practice ― Times of India

     

    From the #1 best-selling author of The Alchemist comes an inspiring story about a young man seeking wisdom from an elder, and the practical lessons imparted along the way.

     

    In The Archer we meet Tetsuya, a man once famous for his prodigious gift with a bow and arrow but who has since retired from public life, and the boy who comes searching for him. The boy has many questions, and in answering them Tetsuya illustrates the way of the bow and the tenets of a meaningful life. Paulo Coelho’s story suggests that living without a connection between action and soul cannot fulfill, that a life constricted by fear of rejection or failure is not a life worth living. Instead one must take risks, build courage, and embrace the unexpected journey fate has to offer.

     

    With the wisdom, generosity, simplicity, and grace that have made him an international best seller, Paulo Coelho provides the framework for a rewarding life: hard work, passion, purpose, thoughtfulness, the willingness to fail, and the urge to make a difference.

  • The Ikigai Journey: A Practical Guide to Finding Happiness and Purpose Japanese Way

    Rs. 2,490.00

    Hector Garcia & Francesc Miralles

     

    SEQUEL TO IKIGAI: THE JAPANESE SECRET TO A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE

     

    In The Ikigai Journey, authors Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles take their international bestseller Ikigai: the Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life a step further by showing you how to find your own ikigai through practical exercises, such as employing new habits and stepping outside your comfort zone.

     

    Ikigai is the place where our passion (what we love), mission (what we hope to contribute), vocation (the gifts we have to offer the world) and profession (how our passions and talents can become a livelihood) converge, giving us a personal sense of meaning. This book helps you bring together all of these elements so that you can enjoy a balanced life.

     

    Our ikigai is very similar to change: it is a constant that transforms depending on which phase of life we are in. Our “reason for being” is not the same at 15 as it is at 70. Through three sections, this book helps you to accept and embrace that―acting as a tool to revolutionize your future by helping you to understand the past, so you can enjoy your present.
    * Section 1―Journey Through the Future: Tokyo (a symbol of modernity and innovation)
    * Section 2―Journey Through the Past: Kyoto (an ancient capital moored in tradition)
    * Section 3―Journey Through the Present: Ise (an ancient shrine that is destroyed and rebuilt every twenty years)

     

    Japan has one of the longest life spans in the world, and the greatest number of centenarians―many of whom cite their strong sense of ikigai as the basis for their happiness and longevity. Unlike many “self-care” practices, which require setting aside time in an increasingly busy world, the ikigai method helps you find peace and fulfillment in your busy life.

    • New York Times Bestseller
    • The Sunday Times Bestseller

     

    Ever wondered why Denmark is always ranked one of the happiest places on earth? Well, that’s down to hygge. And want to know what hygge is? Then read this book. ― Daily Mail Ireland

     

    Danish, dishy and the world’s happiest man (this book) is gorgeously designed ― Times

     

    A thorough and genuinely helpful little life bible that you’ll find yourself coming back to time and again. Hooray for Hygge! ― Heat

     

    The Danish word hygge is one of those beautiful words that doesn’t directly translate into English, but it more or less means comfort, warmth or togetherness.

     

    Hygge is the feeling you get when you are cuddled up on a sofa with a loved one, in warm knitted socks, in front of the fire, when it is dark, cold and stormy outside. It that feeling when you are sharing good, comfort food with your closest friends, by candle light and exchanging easy conversation. It is those cold, crisp blue sky mornings when the light through your window is just right.

     

    Denmark is the happiest nation in the world and Meik puts this largely down to them living the hygge way. They focus on the small things that really matter, spend more quality time with friends and family and enjoy the good things in life. The Little Book of Hygge will give you practical steps and tips to become more hygge: how to pick the right lighting, organise a dinner party and even how to dress hygge, all backed up by Meik’s years’ of research at the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen.

     

    This year live more like a Dane, embrace hygge and become happier.

  • The Six Secrets of Intelligence: Change the Way You Think About Thinking

    Rs. 1,990.00

    Craig Adams

     

    ‘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.

There is even plot and excitement… It was only with the restrained, elegant epilogue written by his wife Lucy Kalanithi that I found myself weeping helplessly… When Breath Becomes Air tells us what means to live a good life, by giving us a glimpse into an exceptional one.” (Lucy Kellaway Financial Times)
