    Ashlee Vance’s stellar biography captures Musk’s remarkable life story and irrepressible spirit ― Richard Branson

     

     

    “Mr. Vance tells the stories of both SpaceX and Tesla with intricacy and insight. . . . What does come through is a sense of legitimate wonder at what humans can accomplish when they aim high, and aim weird”. — Dwight Garner, New York Times

     

     

    “[T]his work will likely serve as the definitive account of a man whom so far we’ve seen mostly through caricature. By the final pages, too, any reader will sense the need to put comparisons to Steve Jobs aside. Give Musk credit. There is no one like him.” — New York Times Book Review

     

     

    “[A] spirited and riveting biography.” — Wall Street Journal

     

     

    “The SpaceX and Tesla founder certainly sees setbacks as an unavoidable part of innovation. But a brilliant new biography paints a picture of him as an obsessive, intolerant perfectionist.” — Financial Times

     

     

    “Fascinating and superbly researched…” — The Guardian UK

  • Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb

     

    • The International Bestseller
    • 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

  • The Talent Code: Greatness isn’t Born. It’s Grown

    Rs. 2,190.00

    Daniel Coyle

     

    “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.
