The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons in Creative Leadership from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company
- #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
- A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2019
- NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR
One of the best business books I’ve read in years. Unlike most books on leadership, this one is worth your time. ― Bill Gates
“Nurturing creativity is less a skill than an art—especially at a company where the brand alone is synonymous with creativity. That’s a lot to live up to. Bob Iger has not only lived up to ninety-six years of groundbreaking history but has moved the Disney brand far beyond anyone’s expectations, and he has done it with grace and audacity. This book shows you how that’s happened.”—Steven Spielberg
“People have been waiting years for Bob Iger to share his leadership secrets. Now he has, and they are utterly brilliant. The Ride of a Lifetime is not merely a memoir; it’s a personal, all-access session with the wisest CEO you’ve ever met and a playbook for handling the key challenges of our age: how to drive change, leverage technology, build an enduring culture, and empower people. It’s a rippingly good, revelatory read.”—Daniel Coyle, New York Times bestselling author of The Culture Code
“I expected a book written by the person who has led Disney for decades to be defined by both gripping storytelling and deep leadership wisdom. Bob Iger delivers, and then some! The Ride of a Lifetime is leadership gold—you won’t forget the stories or the lessons.”—Brené Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead
Iger’s tenure as the leader of the world’s most lucrative dream factory has been one long CEO highlight reel. Iger is unassailable. He’s transformed his company from a stuffy media doyen into a sexy cultural force. ― TIME – Businessperson of the Year 2019

The executive chairman of Disney, Time’s 2019 businessperson of the year, shares the ideas and values he embraced during his fifteen years as CEO while reinventing one of the world’s most beloved companies and inspiring the people who bring the magic to life.
Robert Iger became CEO of The Walt Disney Company in 2005, during a difficult time. Competition was more intense than ever and technology was changing faster than at any time in the company’s history. His vision came down to three clear ideas: Recommit to the concept that quality matters, embrace technology instead of fighting it, and think bigger—think global—and turn Disney into a stronger brand in international markets.
Today, Disney is the largest, most admired media company in the world, counting Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Century Fox among its properties. Its value is nearly five times what it was when Iger took over, and he is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of our era.
In The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger shares the lessons he learned while running Disney and leading its 220,000-plus employees, and he explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership, including:
• Optimism. Even in the face of difficulty, an optimistic leader will find the path toward the best possible outcome and focus on that, rather than give in to pessimism and blaming.
• Courage. Leaders have to be willing to take risks and place big bets. Fear of failure destroys creativity.
• Decisiveness. All decisions, no matter how difficult, can be made on a timely basis. Indecisiveness is both wasteful and destructive to morale.
• Fairness. Treat people decently, with empathy, and be accessible to them.
This book is about the relentless curiosity that has driven Iger for forty-five years, since the day he started as the lowliest studio grunt at ABC. It’s also about thoughtfulness and respect, and a decency-over-dollars approach that has become the bedrock of every project and partnership Iger pursues, from a deep friendship with Steve Jobs in his final years to an abiding love of the Star Wars mythology.
“The ideas in this book strike me as universal” Iger writes. “Not just to the aspiring CEOs of the world, but to anyone wanting to feel less fearful, more confidently themselves, as they navigate their professional and even personal lives.”
About the Author
Robert Iger is chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company. He previously served as president and CEO, beginning in October 2005, and was president and COO from 2000 to 2005. Iger began his career at ABC in 1974, and as chairman of the ABC Group he oversaw the broadcast television network and station group and cable telvision properties, and guided the merger between Capital Cities/ABC and the Walt Disney Company. Iger officially joined the Disney senior management team in 1996 as chairman of the Disney-owned ABC Group and in 1999 was given the additional responsibility of president, Walt Disney International. In that role, Iger expanded Disney’s presence outside of the United States, establishing the blueprint for the company’s international growth today.

Intentional Integrity: How Smart Companies Can Lead an Ethical Revolution
Rs. 2,790.00Add to cart
- * An Inc. Magazine Top 10 Business Book for 2020 *
“Stop talking about bringing your values to work and learn how to actually DO it!” ―Kim Scott, author of Radical Candor
“The ethical expectation for companies is wonderfully changing from ‘do no evil’ to ‘do good.’ Companies and their leaders need to put ethics and integrity at the center of their mission and culture. Rob is an insider who’s combined doing good with doing business well in two iconic Silicon Valley companies. His book contains smart, practical advice for anyone looking to do good and do well.” ―Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and author of Blitzscaling
“No one has wrestled with more difficult business integrity challenges over the last 20 years than Rob. His insights will instruct you how to drive integrity into your culture. Now, more than ever, we need someone to lead a constructive, direct conversation about integrity in business―Rob delivers.” ―Meg Whitman, CEO of Quibi, former CEO of HP and eBay Inc.
“Rob and I were peers at Airbnb and together we helped build a culture and public-facing brand with integrity as a core value. Not only was the work strategically brilliant but under Rob’s leadership, it was embedded into the very heart of the company.

“Drawing on considerable experience with the nuances and circumstances of integrity violations at Airbnb, Chesnut offers plentiful examples of common integrity issues… He is especially good on such matters as enforcing consequences and handling situations involving violators who are high-performing employees. Valuable reading for companies that want to get serious about workplace ethics.” ―Kirkus Reviews
No Filter: The Inside Story of how Instagram Transformed Business, Celebrity and our Culture
Rs. 3,190.00Add to cart
- Winner of the FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2020
- One of the best books of the year according to: The Times | Fortune | Financial Times | Inc. | Economist | Newsweek
“Happily—this is a book about Silicon Valley. It is a record of a single app moving through the place. And in making that record, in hewing closely to Instagram and its founders, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, while giving new texture to the Valley’s major players, like Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, Frier tells the story of how that place works….The book manages to be clear-eyed and objective about the founders and their many flaws, without sensationalizing or oversimplifying—a hard balance to strike in tech coverage right now….we need a book like this to explain what it is I’m tapping on all day. I spend hours staring at the screen, and now I have a better sense of who’s staring back.” —New York Times
“No Filter is a vibrant play-by-play of how Instagram reached that level of influence through the business of manufacturing coolness….Frier’s version of that story is rich with details, based on hundreds of interviews including sit-downs with the app’s co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Armed with their perspective, Frier is able to draw a line between each decision the founders made and the cultural consequences….The irresistible drama of No Filter plays out between the founders and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.” —NPR
“Deeply sourced….Frier delivers a compelling tale of jealousy…. The David-and-Goliath tussle is deftly interwoven by Frier with another tale: the transformation of Instagram itself, from the photo app known for its artsy filters to the creator of ‘creators.'” —Financial Times
“If Aaron Sorkin wants to make a sequel to the movie The Social Network, he has his source material right here. Frier, a tech journalist, was given enviable access to Instagram’s founders and other key players. The result is an inside-the-room chronicle of one of Silicon Valley’s most fascinating and fraught acquisitions. A tale of luck, smarts, and strategy, No Filter also reminds us how much business depends on personal chemistry or—in the case of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Instagram’s Kevin Systrom—the lack thereof. Just as intriguing is Frier’s clear-eyed commentary on what the rise of Instagram culture means.” —Inc, Top 10 New Business Books for 2020
“Successful startups in Silicon Valley are sometimes described as being akin to building a spaceship in mid-flight. With No Filter, the intrepid Sarah Frier takes you inside the spaceship that became Instagram. A deeply reported and beautifully written account of a company that has changed society, fame, culture, business, and communication—sometimes for the better and, as Frier so adeptly shows, also for the worse.” —Nick Bilton, special correspondent for Vanity Fair and author of Hatching Twitter
“With No Filter, Sarah Frier has delivered a brilliant exploration of the highs and lows of human nature. The book is part business drama—packed with tales of creativity, ambition, and intrigue—and part an anthropologist’s examination of modern life. Frier’s vivid reporting and electric storytelling provide the definitive account of how Instagram turned into a cultural phenomenon and what the app’s success says about all of us.” —Ashlee Vance, author of Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future

A Remarkable retelling of the lessons, wisdom, and investment strategies handed down personally from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to shareholders.
“Seasoned investors, as well as Buffett fans, will find plenty of value in this storehouse of financial counsel. A rare view into the mind of Warren Buffett.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“For 25 years, I have religiously read Daniel and Corey’s annual commentaries about Berkshire Hathaway. I know of no keener observers on what has made Berkshire such a wonderful wealth-builder. I also know of no investment firm that cares more about their clients than their firm, Pecaut and Company. You can’t help but learn valuable lessons by reading this book.” ―Jonathan Brandt, Research Analyst, Ruane, Cunniff & Goldfarb
“Since Buffett and Munger always expressed themselves candidly and clearly, once you’ve read Daniel and Corey’s copious notes, you’ll understand Berkshire’s extraordinary approach to investing. This book is a true gem.” ―Jean-Marie Eveillard, Senior Adviser, First Eagle Investment Management
“Having attended nearly every Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting since 1985, I know first-hand that these notes cover every base Buffett and Munger have touched. University of Berkshire Hathaway is a unique gateway inside these legendary meetings. This book will be a resource for generations.” ―Daniel P. Boyle, President, Schwerin Boyle Capital Management
“I’m impressed. I’ve attended quite a few Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meetings but this book filled in the gaps for those I haven’t attended and better still, it underscored any number of valuable insights Buffett and Munger have provided more than once. What’s more, because it covers so many years, it shows how they’ve learned and changed and how they haven’t been afraid to fess up to mistakes. All in all, a fascinating look at two extraordinary investors who unselfishly share their many talents and who educate by putting on a very entertaining show in Omaha every spring.”―Randy Cepuch, Author of A Weekend with Warren Buffett

Noise: A Flaw in Human JudgementRs. 3,490.00Read more
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
“Compelling…A humbling lesson in inaccuracy.”―Financial Times
