    Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard

    Rs. 2,790.00
    or 3 X Rs.930.00 with

    Dan Heath & Chip Heath

     

    • New York Times No. 1 Bestseller

     

    “Witty and instructive . . . The Heath brothers think that the sciences of human behavior can provide us with tools for making changes in our lives—tools that are more effective than ‘willpower,’ ‘leadership’ and other easier-said-than-done solutions. . . . For any effort at the change to succeed, the Heaths argue, you have to ‘shape the path.’ With Switch they have shaped a path that leads in a most promising direction.”—The Wall Street Journal

     

    “Using the terminology of University of Virginia psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the Heaths designate the emotional side of the mind as the Elephant and the rational side as the Rider. . . . Switch is crammed with stories…covering a number of fields to drive home the importance of using the strengths of both the Rider and the Elephant to make change happen. This could be a valuable read for the would-be change-makers of the Obama administration.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

     

    “Whether you’re a manager, a parent or a civic leader, getting people to change can be tricky business. In Switch, brothers Chip and Dan Heath—authors of the bestselling Made to Stick—survey efforts to shape human behavior in search of what works. . . . Even when change isn’t easy, it’s often worth making.”—Time

     

    “Dan and Chip Heath have done it again. . . . Any leader looking to create change in his organization need not look beyond this little book. It is packed with examples and hands-on tools that will get you moving right away. And it is really a fun read.”Business Week

     

    Switch is likely to prove invaluable to anyone wanting to make long-lasting change a reality ― BBC Focus

    The 48 Laws Of Power

    Rs. 5,190.00
    or 3 X Rs.1,730.00 with

    Robert Greene

     

    WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS BOOK AWARD 2019

     

    “Greene’s specialty is analyzing the lives and philosophies of historical figures like Sun Tzu and Napoleon, and extracting from them tips on how to manipulate people and situations–a cutthroat worldview that has earned him a devoted following among a like-minded readership of rappers, drug dealers and corporate executives.” The New York Times

     

    “The Laws of Human Nature provides some first-rate comprehensive and in-depth information about how to deal with our fellow human beings effectively. Greene’s intense curiosity about the inner workings of humanity is contagious, as he invites us to join him as fellow sleuths on his investigation of why people, including ourselves, do what we do. He rightly (and frequently) reminds us that in order to understand others, we must first and foremost understand what makes ourselves tick.” — New York Journal of Books

     

    “Machiavelli has a new rival. And Sun Tzu had better watch his back. Greene . . . has put together a checklist of ambitious behavior. Just reading the table of contents is enough to stir a little corner-office lust.”—New York magazine

     

    “The writing is engaging and the ideas are fascinating… we could all use the insights Greene provides….  a hopeful book that advocates freedom and creativity.” — Quartz

    “Mark Manson is a master of thought-provoking and counterintuitive insights. His easy-to-read style will have you turning pages for hours.” (James Clear, New York Times bestselling author of Atomic Habits)

     

    “Just because everything appears to be a mess doesn’t mean you have to be one. Mark Manson’s book is a call to arms for a better life and better world and could not be more needed right now.” (Ryan Holiday, bestselling author of The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy)

     

    “Mark Manson has succeeded in explaining a crazy world to an entire generation by invoking hard science, moral philosophy, and gobs of hilarious wit. This book is guaranteed to make you laugh, question your beliefs, and (hopefully) change your life.” (Nir Eyal, bestselling author of Hooked and Indistractable)

    Body Language: How to Read Others’ Thoughts by Their Gestures

    Rs. 1,490.00
    or 3 X Rs.496.67 with

    Allan Pease

     

    International Bestseller

     

    Decrypting body language has been a fascinating subject for me. There are a number of different ‘theories’ for interpreting our common gestures. Allan Pease’s Body Language is book is a brief, well-organized and easy to understand guide book which contains the basics of non-verbal communication. With everything being explained from a practical standpoint, readers of any understanding of the subject could read the book quite easily. – Tharindu Dissanayake

     

     

    Many years ago, one of my martial arts instructors made his students read this book. At the end of the lesson he would set a chapter to read before we came back for next week’s lesson. Reading that chapter was not optional, because he would ask each student something about the homework chapter. We thought his fascination with the book was a little strange to begin with, but we quickly learned otherwise. We didn’t know it at the time, but our instructor was teaching us about situational awareness. Reading body language is a big part of situational awareness, and most instructors don’t have time (or the knowledge) to go into the fine details of the subject. This is a great book that everyone should read at least once in their lives, it’s easier to avoid trouble if you can read the moods of the people around you. – Beau Johnston

    Beyond Order: 12 More Rules For Life

    Rs. 2,790.00
    or 3 X Rs.930.00 with

    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

    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

    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.

    Why : What Makes us Curious

    Rs. 2,990.00
    or 3 X Rs.996.67 with

    Mario Livio

     

    Astrophysicist and author Mario Livio investigates perhaps the most human of all our characteristics—curiosity—as he explores our innate desire to know why. Experiments demonstrate that people are more distracted when they overhear a phone conversation—where they can know only one side of the dialogue—than when they overhear two people talking and know both sides. Why does half a conversation make us more curious than a whole conversation? In the ever-fascinating Why? Mario Livio interviewed scientists in several fields to explore the nature of curiosity. He examined the lives of two of history’s most curious geniuses, Leonardo da Vinci and Richard Feynman. He also talked to people with boundless curiosity: a superstar rock guitarist who is also an astrophysicist; an astronaut with degrees in computer science, biology, literature and medicine. What drives these people to be curious about so many subjects? Curiosity is at the heart of mystery and suspense novels. It is essential to other forms of art, from painting to sculpture to music. It is the principal driver of basic scientific research. Even so, there is still no definitive scientific consensus about why we humans are so curious or about the mechanisms in our brain that are responsible for curiosity. Mario Livio—an astrophysicist who has written about mathematics, biology and now psychology and neuroscience—explores this irresistible subject in a lucid, entertaining way that will captivate anyone who is curious about curiosity.

    • Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction Nominee for Longlist (2012)

     

    There have been many good books on human rationality and irrationality, but only one masterpiece. That masterpiece is Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow. Kahneman, a winner of the Nobel Prize for economics, distils a lifetime of research into an encyclopedic coverage of both the surprising miracles and the equally surprising mistakes of our conscious and unconscious thinking. He achieves an even greater miracle by weaving his insights into an engaging narrative that is compulsively readable from beginning to end. My main problem in doing this review was preventing family members and friends from stealing my copy of the book to read it for themselves…this is one of the greatest and most engaging collections of insights into the human mind I have read — William Easterly ― Financial Times

     

    This is a landmark book in social thought, in the same league as The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith and The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud — Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of ‘The Black Swan’

     

    Daniel Kahneman is one of the most original and interesting thinkers of our time. There may be no other person on the planet who better understands how and why we make the choices we make. In this absolutely amazing book, he shares a lifetime’s worth of wisdom presented in a manner that is simple and engaging, but nonetheless stunningly profound. This book is a must read for anyone with a curious mind — Steven D. Levitt, co-author of ‘Freakonomics’

     

    This book is a tour de force by an intellectual giant; it is readable, wise, and deep. Buy it fast. Read it slowly and repeatedly. It will change the way you think, on the job, about the world, and in your own life — Richard Thaler, co-author of ‘Nudge’

     

    Thinking, Fast and Slow is a masterpiece – a brilliant and engaging intellectual saga by one of the greatest psychologists and deepest thinkers of our time. Kahneman should be parking a Pulitzer next to his Nobel Prize — Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, author of ‘Stumbling on Happiness’, host of the award-winning PBS television series ‘This Emotional Life’

     

    A terrific unpicking of human rationality and irrationality – could hardly have been published at a better moment. Kahnemann is the godfather of behavioural economics, and this distillation of a lifetime’s thinking about why we make bad decisions – about everything from money to love – is full of brilliant anecdote and wisdom. It is Kahnemann’s belief that anyone who thinks they know exactly what is going on hasn’t understood the question; as such it’s the perfect gift for opinionated family members everywhere. — Tim Adams ― Observer Books of the Year

    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

    “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.

    “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 Body Keeps the Score: Mind, Brain and Body in the Transformation of Trauma

    Rs. 2,290.00
    or 3 X Rs.763.33 with

    Bessel van der Kolk M.D

     

    • #1 New York Times bestseller

     

    “Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding and treating traumatic stress and the scope of its impact on society.” —Alexander McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies

     

    “The trauma caused by childhood neglect, sexual or domestic abuse and war wreaks havoc in our bodies, says Bessel van der Kolk in The Body Keeps the Score. . . . Van der Kolk draws on thirty years of experience to argue powerfully that trauma is one of the West’s most urgent public health issues. . . . Packed with science and human stories, the book is an intense read. . . . [T]he struggle and resilience of his patients is very moving.” —Shaoni Bhattacharya, New Scientist

     

    “War zones may be nearer than you think, as the 25 percent of US citizens raised with alcoholic relatives might attest. Psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk argues, moreover, that severe trauma is ‘encoded in the viscera’ and demands tailored approaches that enable people to experience deep relief from rage and helplessness. In a narrative packed with decades of findings and case studies, he traces the evolution of treatments from the ‘chemical coshes’ of the 1970s to neurofeedback, mindfulness and other nuanced techniques.” —Nature

     

    “An astonishing amount of information on almost every aspect of trauma experience, research, interventions, and theories is brought together in this book, which . . . has a distinctly holistic feel to it. The title suggests that what will be explored is how the body retains the imprints of trauma. However, it delivers much more than this, delving into how the brain is impacted by overwhelming traumatic events, and is studded with sections on neuroscience which draw on the author’s own numerous studies as well as that of his peers. In addition, it investigates the effects of adverse childhood attachment patterns, child abuse, and chronic and long-term abuse. . . . [T]his book is a veritable goldmine of information.” —European Journal of Psychotraumatology

     

    “[A] wonderful new book that everyone involved with trauma ought to read and have available. . . . [B]eautifully, compellingly and sweepingly written in its grand vision of integrating medical, psychological and mixed or alternative approaches, based on a careful reading of the client and a holistic mind-body view. . . . There are very few practitioners who could not learn from this book and become more effective, as well as inspired, by reading and studying it.” Henry Strick van Linschoten, European Society For Trauma And Dissociation Newsletter

     

    “In this inspirational work which seamlessly weaves keen clinical observation, neuroscience, historical analysis, the arts, and personal narrative, Dr. van der Kolk has created an authoritative guide to the effects of trauma, and pathways to recovery. The book is full of wisdom, humanity, compassion and scientific insight, gleaned from a lifetime of clinical service, research and scholarship in the field of traumatic stress. A must read for mental health and other health care professionals, trauma survivors, their loved ones, and those who seek clinical, social, or political solutions to the cycle of trauma and violence in our society.” —Rachel Yehuda, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and neuroscience; director of the Traumatic Stress Studies Division at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY

     

    “In The Body Keeps the Score we share the author’s courageous journey into the parallel dissociative worlds of trauma victims and the medical and psychological disciplines that are meant to provide relief. In this compelling book we learn that as our minds desperately try to leave trauma behind, our bodies keep us trapped in the past with wordless emotions and feelings. These inner disconnections cascade into ruptures in social relationships with disastrous effects on marriages, families, and friendships. Van der Kolk offers hope by describing treatments and strategies that have successfully helped his patients reconnect their thoughts with their bodies. We leave this shared journey understanding that only through fostering self-awareness and gaining an inner sense of safety will we, as a species, fully experience the richness of life. —Stephen W. Porges, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; author of The Polyvagal Theory: Neurophysiological Foundations of Emotions, Attachment, Communication, and Self-Regulation

     

    The Body Keeps the Score is clear, fascinating, hard to put down, and filled with powerful case histories. Van der Kolk, the eminent impresario of trauma treatment, who has spent a career bringing together diverse trauma scientists and clinicians and their ideas, while making his own pivotal contributions, describes what is arguably the most important series of breakthroughs in mental health in the last thirty years. We’ve known that psychological trauma fragments the mind. Here we see not only how psychological trauma also breaks connections within the brain, but also between mind and body, and learn about the exciting new approaches that allow people with the severest forms of trauma to put all the parts back together again.” —Norman Doidge, author of The Brain That Changes Itself

     

    “Every once in a while, a book comes along that fundamentally changes the way we look at the world. Bessel van der Kolk has written such a book. The arc of van der Kolk’s story is vast and comprehensive, but he is such a skillful storyteller that he keeps us riveted to the page. I could not put this book down. It is, simply put, a great work.”  —Stephen Cope, founder and director, Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living; author of Yoga and the Quest for the True Self

     

    The Body Keeps the Score is masterful in bringing together science and humanism to clearly explain how trauma affects the whole person. Bessel van der Kolk brings deep understanding to the pain and chaos of the trauma experience. The treatment approaches he recommends heal the body and the mind, restoring hope and the possibility of joy. One reads this book with profound gratitude for its wisdom.” —Alicia Lieberman, Ph.D., Professor of Medical Psychology UCSF, Director of the Child Trauma Research Project, San Francisco General Hospital; author of The Emotional Life of the Toddler

    Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgement

    Rs. 3,490.00
    or 3 X Rs.1,163.33 with

    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.”
    Annie Duke, author of Thinking in Bets

     

    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

    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. . . .

    ‘Freud the writer is what Joan Riviere so elegantly presents to the English-Language reader’ Lisa Appignanesi from her preface to Sigmund Freud: Essays and Papers
     

    This collection focuses in on the set of Riviere’s translations that made up the first library of Freud in English. Including his papers on metapsychology, applied psychoanalysis and technique, and within those broader categories are subjects as diverse as narcissism, love, paranoia and homosexuality. Riviere’s great understanding of Freud’s work is evident as we see his engrossingly direct arguments – the style that distinguished him from academics of his day – take shape in her talented translations. We are presented with Freud’s various guises, both an essayist and master storyteller he brings to life the vagaries of his patients.
     

    Riviere was a major player in disseminating psychoanalysis into English, ‘no less than the man she translated is she a figure to be hidden from history’, in this collection the translator and the scientist come together in a rich, engrossing brew.

    ‘Who would have thought something as simple as changing the way we breathe could be so revolutionary for our health, from snoring to allergies to immunity? A fascinating book, full of dazzling revelations’ –Dr. Rangan Chatterjee

     

    ‘In the past few years, there have been several potentially life-changing books, from Matthew Walker’s Why We Sleep and Shane O’Mara’s In Praise of Walking, to Norman Doidge’s The Brain’s Way of HealingBreath deserves a place alongside such volumes. Read it, and I guarantee you will want to change the way you breathe’ — Evening Standard

     

    A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe – and how we’ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time. I already feel calmer and healthier just in the last few days, from making a few simple changes in my breathing, based on what I’ve read. Our breath is a beautiful, healing, mysterious gift, and so is this book — Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

I had no idea that the simple and intuitive act of inhaling and exhaling has taken such an evolutionary hit. As a result, I figured out why I sleep so badly and why my breathing feels so often out-of-sync. With a few simple tweaks, I fixed my breathing and fixed myself. A transformational book’ — Caroline Paul, author of The Gutsy Girl

    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

     

    Hans Rosling tells the story of “the secret silent miracle of human progress” as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly. — Melinda Gates

     

    Factfulness has the power to shift your entire perspective. If you want to understand the world, read it now! — Rolf Dobelli

     

    Factfulness is a fabulous read, succinct and lively. It asks why so many people – including Nobel laureates and medical researchers – get the numbers so wrong on pressing issues such as poverty, pandemics and climate change… a just tribute to this book and the man would be a global day of celebration for facts about our world. — Jim O’Neill ― Nature

     

    It was such a hopeful book – it’s about why society is better off than we think and how many of the problems we think exist, don’t — Talita von Fürstenberg ― Vogue

    Give and Take is a truly exhilarating book—the rare work that will shatter your assumptions about how the world works and keep your brain firing for weeks after you’ve turned the last page.” —Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

     

    Give and Take is brimming with life-changing insights. As brilliant as it is wise, this is not just a book—it’s a new and shining worldview. Adam Grant is one of the great social scientists of our time, and his extraordinary new book is sure to be a bestseller.” —Susan Cain, author of Quiet

     

    Give and Take cuts through the clutter of clichés in the marketplace and provides a refreshing new perspective on the art and science of success. Adam Grant has crafted a unique, ‘must have’ toolkit for accomplishing goals through collaboration and reciprocity.” —William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.

     

    “With Give and Take, Adam Grant has marshaled compelling evidence for a revolutionary way of thinking about personal success in business and in life. Besides the fundamentally uplifting character of the case he makes, readers will be delighted by the truly engaging way he makes it. This is a must read.” —Robert Cialdini, author of Influence

     

    Give and Take is a brilliant, well-documented, and motivating debunking of ‘good guys finish last’! I’ve noticed for years that generosity generates its own kind of equity, and Grant’s fascinating research and engaging style have created not only a solid validation of that principle but also practical wisdom and techniques for utilizing it more effectively. This is a super manifesto for getting meaningful things done, sustainably.” —David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

     

    “One of the great secrets of life is that those who win most are often those who give most.

    “Adam Grant, a rising star of positive psychology, seamlessly weaves together science and stories of business success and failure, convincing us that giving is in the long run the recipe for success in the corporate world. En route you will find yourself re-examining your own life. Read it yourself, then give copies to the people you care most about in this world.” —Martin Seligman, author of Learned Optimism and Flourish

     

    “A milestone! Well-researched, generous, actionable and important. Adam Grant has given us a gift, a hard-hitting book about the efficacy of connection and generosity in everything we do.” —Seth Godin, bestselling author of The Icarus Deception and Tribes

This gem is a joy to read, and it shatters the myth that greed is the path to success.” —Robert Sutton, author of The No *sshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss

    • 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

    Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters

    Steven Pinker

     

    • TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2021

     

     Steven Pinker is among the best science writers in history, and with Rationality he applies his talents to one of the most important and misunderstood human abilities – tracking reality with a brain that was designed to do so under some circumstances but not others. If you’ve ever considered taking drugs to make yourself smarter, read Rationality instead. It’s cheaper, more entertaining, and more effective. Jonathan Haidt, NYU-Stern School of Business and author of The Righteous Mind 

     

    In the twenty-first century, humanity is reaching new heights of scientific understanding – and at the same time appears to be losing its mind. How can a species that discovered vaccines for Covid-19 in less than a year produce so much fake news, quack cures and conspiracy theorizing?

     

    In Rationality, Pinker rejects the cynical cliché that humans are simply an irrational species – cavemen out of time fatally cursed with biases, fallacies and illusions. After all, we discovered the laws of nature, lengthened and enriched our lives and set the benchmarks for rationality itself. Instead, he explains, we think in ways that suit the low-tech contexts in which we spend most of our lives, but fail to take advantage of the powerful tools of reasoning we have built up over millennia: logic, critical thinking, probability, causal inference, and decision-making under uncertainty. These tools are not a standard part of our educational curricula, and have never been presented clearly and entertainingly in a single book – until now.

     

    Rationality matters. It leads to better choices in our lives and in the public sphere, and is the ultimate driver of social justice and moral progress. Brimming with insight and humour, Rationality will enlighten, inspire and empower.

    MD Brizendine, Louann

     

    Finally, a satisfying answer to Freud’s question: what does a woman want? Louann Brizendine has done a great favour for every man who wants to understand the puzzling women in his life. A breezy and enlightening guide to women – and a must-read for men — Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

     

    Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can’t remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages.

     

    Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and who they love. While doing research as a medical student at Yale and then as a resident and faculty member at Harvard, Louann Brizendine discovered that almost all of the clinical data in existence on neurology, psychology, and neurobiology focused exclusively on males. In response to the overwhelming need for information on the female mind, Brizendine established the first clinic in the country to study and treat women’s brain function.

     

    In The Female Brain, Dr. Brizendine distills all her findings and the latest information from the scientific community in a highly accessible book that educates women about their unique brain/body/behavior.

     

    The result: women will come away from this book knowing that they have a lean, mean, communicating machine. Men will develop a serious case of brain envy.

    Marvellous. The most important book published for a decade — Lynne Truss ― Sunday Telegraph

     

    Quiet is a very timely book, and Cain’s central thesis is fresh and important. Maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm — Daisy Goodwin ― The Sunday Times

     

    Susan Cain’s Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution. In our booming culture, hers is a still, small voice that punches above its weight. Perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen — Megan Walsh ― The Times

     

    I can’t get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book – so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices — Jon Ronson ― The Guardian

    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.
