  • Mind Master: Winning Lessons From A Champion’s Life

    Rs. 2,390.00

    Viswanathan Anand

     

    “There’s something to be said about working towards achieving a goal without obsessing over how far you’re from it or how hopelessly you’re missing the mark each time. Once you shut out the clamour of the result and simply persevere, success is bound to be yours.’ – Viswanathan Anand

     

    Few people know better than Viswanathan Anand how to tackle the gravest obstacles and overcome the toughest odds.

     

    From the time he learnt to move pieces on a chess board as a six-year-old, Vishy- as Anand is fondly known – has racked up innumerable accolades. The first chess Grandmaster from Asia, he emerged onto the world stage when chess was largely a Soviet preserve, climbed the ranks to become world No. 1, bagged five world championship titles and won tournaments across all formats of the game. An ambassador of the sport like no other, his is one of the most revered names in chess today.

     

    In Mind Master, Vishy looks back at a lifetime of games played, opponents tackled and circumstances overcome and draws from its depths significant tools that will help every reader to navigate life’s challenges.

     

    • What role do tactics and strategy play in the preparation for achieving a goal?
    • How can emotions be harnessed to be of advantage in tricky situations?
    • What are the precautions to be taken before you decide to leave your comfort zone and embrace risk?
    • What do you need to do to stay relevant in the face of rapidly changing realities?
    • Is unlearning really the only way to learn?

     

    These are just some of the nuggets Anand touches upon with characteristic wit, easy wisdom and disarming candour in Mind Master – a delightful and invaluable exploration into the self that will thrill, inspire and motivate readers as few books have done before.

  • Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali: The Tribute

    Rs. 2,990.00

    The definitive tribute that celebrates the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali, an American original.

     

    From his unlikely transformation from Louisville Golden Gloves winner to Olympic gold medalist to three-time heavyweight champion, civil rights hero and at one point, the most famous person on earth, Muhammad Ali and his journey were always chronicled and celebrated by Sports Illustrated’s writers and photographers. Now, all of those moments and memories are collected in Muhammad Ali: The Tribute, a deluxe fully-illustrated gift book that celebrates the life and legacy of this iconic athlete and champion.

     

    He shook up the world and became the boxer who went from the sports page to the front page. As a young fighter, he revolutionized boxing as the fleet-of-foot dancer who took the crown from Sonny Liston; his rivalry with Joe Frazier was legendary; he grew up into one of the toughest heavyweights of all time, winning The Rumble in the Jungle and the Thrilla in Manilla. He was then able to parlay that fame into a role as an elder statesman and inspiration to decades of athletes who would come behind him. All of those moments are captured here in distinct chapters that take you from Rise to Rumble, Exile to Return, Greatest, and Statesman.

     

    Written with the keen insight that only Sports Illustrated can bring, with a special gatefold that features stats and images from every one of this legendary bouts, and hundreds more black and white and full-color photographs that have become as iconic as the man himself, Muhammad Ali: The Tribute will stand as the companion piece to a legendary man and athlete.
