  • Seven Pillars of Wisdom

    Rs. 2,490.00

    T. E. Lawrence

     

    Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the autobiographical account of T.E. Lawrence – also known as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ – of his service in the Arab Revolt during the First World War, published in Penguin Modern Classics. Although ‘continually and bitterly ashamed’ that the Arabs had risen in revolt against the Turks as a result of fraudulent British promises of self-rule, Lawrence led them in a triumphant campaign that revolutionized the art of war. Seven Pillars of Wisdom recreates epic events with extraordinary vividness.

     

    ‘Round this tent-pole of a military chronicle, Lawrence has hung an unexampled fabric of portraits, descriptions, philosophies, emotions, adventures, dreams’ — E. M. Forster

     

    ‘I am not much of a hero-worshipper, but I could have followed T.E. Lawrence over the edge of the world’ — John Buchan, author of The Thirty-Nine Steps

  • The Happiness of Pursuit: Find the Quest that will Bring Purpose to Your Life

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Chris Guillebeau

     

    • A New York Times Bestseller

     

    Chris Guillebeau is a rare combination of sage and adventurer, and The Happiness of Pursuit is both a distillation of his wisdom and a demonstration of his – and others’ – passion for the questing life. The passion Chris chronicles is infectious, and it becomes even more so as we read about life-focusing action delivering deep meaning. Even if you prefer never to leave your armchair, this book will inspire you to take a beautiful voyage – one that can be either physical or mental as you chase the thrill of steady accomplishment. — Susan Cain, Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of Quiet

     

    The Happiness of Pursuit is smart, honest, and dangerous. Why dangerous? Because it is as practical as it is inspiring. You won’t just be daydreaming about your quest – you’ll be packing for it! — Brene Brown, author of New York Times bestseller Daring Great

     

    It’s not easy to dream big – and it’s not easy to turn that dream into reality. The brilliant Chris Guillebeau provides the essential blueprint for those of us for whom the happiness of pursuit – such as Chris’s successful quest to visit every country in the world – is a key part of the pursuit of happiness — Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project

     

    If you like complacency and mediocrity, do not read this book. It’s dangerously inspiring. It will make you want to do amazing things with your life. You may not end up visiting every country on Earth or directing a global protest from the top of a tree (I certainly won’t), but Chris made me want to dive into an adventure. The Happiness of Pursuit is a how-to guide for avoiding a boring life. — A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically

     

    The incredible quests Chris Guillebeau explores in The Happiness of Pursuit, including his own to visit every country, left me feeling exhausted. Of course, as a person who works from home, I limit my quests most days to taking a shower. Bottom line: these stories are inspiring-and very, very entertaining.” — Joel Stein, columnist for Time magazine and author of Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity
