A wonderful book … a remarkable study in leadership — Barack Obama
A brilliant book … I couldn’t get enough of it –– Alex Ferguson
Goodwin’s narrative abilities are on full display here. A portrait of Lincoln as a virtuosic politician and managerial genius — Michiko Kakutani ― New York Times
I have not enjoyed a history book as much for years — Robert Harris ― The Observer (Books of the Year)
The most uplifting book that I have read in the last two decades. Sensational — Jon Snow
“An elegant, incisive study of Lincoln and leading members of his cabinet that will appeal to experts as well as to those whose knowledge of Lincoln is an amalgam of high school history and popular mythology…. Goodwin has brilliantly described how Lincoln forged a team that preserved a nation and freed America from the curse of slavery.” -James M. McPherson, The New York Times Book Review
“A brilliantly conceived and well-written tour de force of a historical nar rative…. Goodwin’s contribution is refreshingly unique…. Goodwin’s emotive prose elevates this tome from mere popular history to literary achievement.” -Douglas Brinkly, The Boston Globe
“Goodwin finds her Lincoln hiding in plain view. He is Lincoln the politician, but one whose political shrewdness ends up being indistinguishable from wisdom. She has written a wonderful book. There is a man in it.” -Garry Wills, American Scholar
“A sweeping, riveting account… Put simply, Goodwin’s story of Lincoln’s great, troubled, triumphant life is a star-spangled, high-stepping, hat-waving, bugle-blowing winner.” – Daily News (New York)

The Test of My Life: From Cricket to Cancer and Back
Rs. 1,990.00Add to cart
For the first time ever, Yuvraj Singh tells the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when his on-the-field triumphs hid his increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. In his debut book, The Test of My Life, he reveals how plagued with insomnia, coughing fits that left him vomiting blood, and an inability to eat-he made a deal with God. On the night before the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup final, Yuvraj prayed for the World Cup in return for anything God wanted.
In this book, he lays bare his fears, doubts, and the lows he experienced during chemotherapy-when he lost his energy, his appetite, and his hair-and his battle to find the will to survive. Poignant, personal, and moving, The Test of My Life is about cancer and cricket; but more importantly, it is about the human will to fight in the face of adversity and triumph despite all odds.
Alexander the GreatRs. 2,290.00Read more
- Society of Midland Authors Award Nominee for Biography (2012)
“Freeman tells us about Alexander’s life like a novel—a remarkably interesting novel, to boot.” —Sarah Hann, The Saturday Evening Post
“Fast-paced and dramatic, much like Alexander himself, this is a splendid introduction into one of the most dramatic true stories of history.” -Adrian Goldsworthy, author of Antony and Cleopatra
“As racy and pacey as any novel. Here, in vivid and exciting detail, are all the familiar highlights of Alexander’s career…. Mr. Freeman’s ambition, he tells us in his introduction, was ‘to write a biography of Alexander that is first and foremost a story.’ It is one he splendidly fulfills…. A rollicking read.” -Tom Holland, The Wall Street Journal
“Freeman does not hero worship Alexander, and does not paper over his subject’s many faults. At times, Alexander can seem like an almost mythic figure, but, as Freeman shows, he was all too human.” -Matthew Price, The Boston Globe
“Lean, learned, and marked by good judgment on every page, Alexander the Great is also a roaring good yarn. Philip Freeman has the eye of someone who has walked in Alexander’s footsteps, and he writes with grace and wisdom.” -Barry Strauss, author of The Spartacus War and professor of history, Cornell University
“The author’s love for his subject infuses this footnote-free narrative with an unfussy breeziness, and readers are sure to come away from Alexander’s story with an essential grasp of the details and understanding of his character.” -Kirkus Reviews
“A well-written, chronological narrative that allows Alexander’s remarkable career and achievements to speak for themselves. . . Readers will appreciate this fine account of a man truly deserving of the title ‘Great.'” -Booklist

Mind Master: Winning Lessons From A Champion’s Life
Rs. 2,690.00Read more
“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.
Jacinda Ardern: Leading with EmpathyRs. 2,490.00Read more
Supriya Vani and Carl A. Harte
The first biography to be based on interviews with Ardern and those around her
‘It takes courage to be an empathetic leader. And I think if anything the world needs empathetic leadership now, perhaps more than ever.’ Jacinda Ardern
Jacinda Ardern was swept to office in 2017 on a wave of popular enthusiasm dubbed ‘Jacindamania’. In less than three months, she rose from deputy leader of the opposition to New Zealand’s highest office. Her victory seemed heroic. Few in politics would have believed it possible; fewer still would have guessed at her resolve and compassionate leadership, which, in the wake of the horrific Christchurch mosque shootings of March 2019, brought her international acclaim. Since then, her decisive handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen her worldwide standing rise to the point where she is now celebrated as a model leader. In 2020 she won an historic, landslide victory and yet, characteristically, chose to govern in coalition with the Green Party.
Jacinda Ardern: Leading with Empathy carefully explores the influences – personal, social, political and emotional – that have shaped Ardern. Peace activist and journalist Supriya Vani and writer Carl A. Harte build their narrative through Vani’s exclusive interviews with Ardern, as well as the prime minister’s public statements and speeches and the words of those who know her. We visit the places, meet the people and understand the events that propelled the daughter of a small-town Mormon policeman to become a committed social democrat, a passionate Labour Party politician and a modern leader admired for her empathy and courage.
The Story of My Life
Rs. 1,790.00Add to cart
When she was 19 months old, Helen Keller (1880–1968) suffered a severe illness that left her blind and deaf. Not long after, she also became mute. Her tenacious struggle to overcome these handicaps-with the help of her inspired teacher, Anne Sullivan-is one of the great stories of human courage and dedication.
In this classic autobiography, first published in 1903, Miss Keller recounts the first 22 years of her life, including the magical moment at the water pump when, recognizing the connection between the word “water” and the cold liquid flowing over her hand, she realized that objects had names.
Subsequent experiences were equally noteworthy: her joy at eventually learning to speak, her friendships with Oliver Wendell Holmes, Edward Everett Hale and other notables, her education at Radcliffe (from which she graduated cum laude), and-underlying all-her extraordinary relationship with Miss Sullivan, who showed a remarkable genius for communicating with her eager and quick-to-learn pupil.
The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir PutinRs. 2,690.00Read more
Steven Lee Myers
“Steven Lee Myers’s The New Tsar is not the first biography of Putin, but it is the strongest to date. Judicious and comprehensive, it pulls back the veil… from one of the world’s most secretive leaders. What is most striking, given the aura of steely consistency that Putin cultivates, is how he has changed over the years…. The great strength of Myers’s book is the way it shows how chance events and Putin’s own degeneration gradually cleared the path to the Ukraine crisis… Putin emerges as neither a KGB automaton, nor the embodiment of Russian historical traditions, nor an innocent victim of Western provocations and NATO’s hubris, but rather as a flawed individual who made his own choices at crucial moments and thereby shaped history.” —Daniel Treisman, The Washington Post
“What Steven Lee Myers gets so right in The New Tsar, his comprehensive new biography — the most informative and extensive so far in English — is that at bottom Putin simply feels that he’s the last one standing between order and chaos… What Myers offers is the portrait of a man swinging from crisis to crisis with one goal: projecting strength… A knowledgeable and thorough biography… Putin himself now represents the chaos he so abhors — the chaos that will surely come in his wake.” —Gal Beckerman, The New York Times Book Review
“Combining skilled story telling, psychological examination and political investigation, Steven Lee Myers succeeds brilliantly in this biography of Vladimir Putin. Explaining the dangers that Putin’s Russia may and does pose, Myers effortlessly and expertly guides the reader through the complexities of the Russian Byzantine governing style and the country’s politics and identity. In the end, the book provides one of the most comprehensive answers to a puzzling question: Despite all the changes that Russia has gone through during communism and post-communism, why is it still an empire of the tsar?” —Nina Khrushcheva
“Personalities determine history as much as geography, and there is no personality who has had such a pivotal effect on 21st century Europe as much as Vladimir Putin. The New Tsar is a riveting, immensely detailed biography of Putin that explains in full-bodied, almost Shakespearean fashion why he acts the way he does.” –Robert D. Kaplan
“The reptilian, poker-faced former KGB agent, now Russian president seemingly for life, earns a fair, engaging treatment in the hands of New York Times journalist Myers… [who] clearly knows his material and primary subject… Putin used the perks of power to create a complex system of cronyism and nepotism. Myers shows how Putin convinced everyone that this way of operating was part of the Russian soul and how he perpetuated it through an archaic form of Russian corruption… Myers astutely notes how Putin’s speeches increasingly harkened back to the worst period of the Cold War era’s dictates by Soviet strongmen… A highly effective portrait of a frighteningly powerful autocrat.” –Kirkus (starred review)

These memoirs from one of the great leaders of our time are ‘essential reading for anyone who wants to understand history – and then go out and change it’ –Barack Obama

‘Burns with the luminosity of faith in the invincible nature of human hope and dignity . . . Unforgettable’ –Andre Brink

Didn’t See That Coming : Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls Apart
Rs. 2,690.00Add to cart
Rachel Hollis sees you. As the millions who read her Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing, attend her RISE conferences and follow her on social media know, she also wants to see you transform. When it comes to the “hard seasons” of life—the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job—transformation seems impossible when grief and uncertainty dominate your days. Especially when, as Didn’t See that Coming reveals, no one asks to have their future completely rearranged for them.
But, as Rachel writes, it is up to you how you come through your pain—you can come through changed for the better, having learned and grown, or stuck in place where your identity becomes rooted in what hurt you. With humor, honesty and true-life stories, in Didn’t See that Coming Rachel Hollis shares how to embrace the difficult moments in life for the learning experiences they are, and that a life well-lived is one of purpose and focused on the essentials. This is a small book about big feelings, inspirational, aspirational, and an anchor that shows that darkness can co-exist with the beautiful.
