A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the FutureRs. 2,690.00Read more
- Goodreads Choice Award for Science & Technology (2020)
‘Read this book to learn, but also to honour the man. We shall never see his like again.’ – Sunday Times
“The eminent traveler and naturalist delivers a combination of memoir and manifesto, the first leisurely, the second earnest….Recognizing that we are at a tipping point, Attenborough is refreshingly optimistic, noting that one thing humans do well is solve problems. Anyone concerned with the planet’s ecological future will want to spend time with this excellent book.“―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
In this scientifically informed account of the changes occurring in the world over the last century, award-winning broadcaster and natural historian shares a lifetime of wisdom and a hopeful vision for the future.
See the world. Then make it better.I am 93. I’ve had an extraordinary life. It’s only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.
As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world – but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day — the loss of our planet’s wild places, its biodiversity.
I have been witness to this decline. A Life on Our Planet is my witness statement, and my vision for the future. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake — and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right.
We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited.
All we need is the will to do so.
A Short History of Humanity: How Migration Made Us Who We AreRs. 2,790.00Read more
Johannes Krause & Thomas Trappe
A highly readable, personal guide to the twists and turns in unravelling ancient DNA: Krause and Trappe expertly unravel the story of ancient DNA to reveal how the new field of archaeogenetics has utterly transformed understanding of our deep past. ― Rebecca Wragg Sykes, author of Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death, and Art
A Short History of Humanity is an eloquent and timely reminder that viruses and other pathogens of infectious disease are merely fellow-travellers in an epic journey that began when the first human migrants left Africa around 200,000 years ago. The solution to pandemics is not to close borders in the hope of keeping viruses out but to recognise that we are a fundamentally peripatetic species united in our shared genetic inheritance and common humanity. ― Mark Honigsbaum, author of A Pandemic Century
A valuable contribution to our understanding of who we are and how we got here. ― Tim Marshall, bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography
One of those books that stops you dead in your tracks and makes you say out loud – why didn’t I know that before? So easy to read. So logically argued. So satisfyingly sensible and thought-provoking. Read it, think about it, and then read it again. An absolute revelation. ― Professor Sue Black, bestselling author of All That Remains
Extremely enriching. Rarely, have I been able to learn so much and get such radically new insights over 250 pages ― Süddeutsche Zeitung

‘Truly impressive…It’s hard to imagine a better rough guide to science.’ Guardian
‘A travelogue of science, with a witty, engaging, and well-informed guide‘ The Times
Mr Bryson has a natural gift for clear and vivid expression. I doubt that a better book for the layman about the findings of modern science has been written ― Sunday Telegraph
A fascinating idea, and I can’t think of many writers, other than Bryson, who would do it this well. It’s the sort of book I would have devoured as a teenager. It might well turn unsuspecting young readers into scientists. And the famous, slightly cynical humour is always there ― Evening Standard
A genuinely useful and readable book. There is a phenomenal amount of fascinating information packed between its covers … A thoroughly enjoyable, as well as educational, experience. Nobody who reads it will ever look at the world around them in the same way again ― Daily Express
Of course, there are people much better qualified than Bill Bryson to attempt a project of this magnitude. None of them, however, can write fluent Brysonese, which, as pretty much the entire Western reading public now knows, is an appealing mixture of self-deprecation, wryness and punnery ― Spectator
The very book I have been looking for most of my life… Bryson wears his knowledge with aplomb and a lot of very good jokes ― Daily Mail

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

All In: How Obsessive Leaders Achieve the ExtraordinaryRs. 2,290.00Read more
Robert Bruce Shaw
What makes great leaders like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk extraordinary? All In shows leaders and aspiring leaders how obsession can fuel the most incredible success, but also take a toll on a leader, his or her family and work colleagues.
Groundbreaking leaders share a passionate commitment to achieving their vision that borders and sometimes crosses the line into obsession. All In shows how obsession, if properly focused and managed, is both necessary and productive. Advances in any endeavor almost always depend on a small group of individuals who are completely consumed by the goal they’re pursuing. When these leaders and their teams are successful, everyone benefits from their singular focus and relentless drive.
All In explores the three obsessions underlying the achievements of great leaders:
- Delighting customers
- Building great products
- Creating an enduring company
By taking you inside the success stories of iconic leaders, including Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Steve Jobs of Apple, author Robert Bruce Shaw shows the upside of obsession and the practices that support it. Shaw also provides insight into the dark side of obsession and its destructive potential – as illustrated in his case study of Uber during the final years of Travis Kalanick’s leadership tenure. Appealing to any reader of entrepreneurial biographies, All In shows individuals and organizations how to manage obsession’s downsides while realizing the benefits of striving to create something that truly matters.
Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global EmpireRs. 3,290.00Add to cart
‘Stone’s new volume is on its surface a business book that seeks to explain the rise of America’s most important private enterprise… Amazon Unbound is particularly valuable in explaining how the company makes money, and the day-to-day decisions that end up having a big effect on consumers… a dense, at times juicy tour of the company Bezos built.’ (Ben Smith New York Times)
‘Fascinating and deeply researched… Stone is at his best describing Bezos’s demanding style of management… Masterful.’ (Marc Levinson Washington Post)
‘An excellent new book…Bezos emerges as the ur-billionaire of our time, the deft wielder of a fortune so vast that he and his company are becoming “perilously close to invincible”.’ (Farhad Manjoo New York Times)
‘In this vivid, anecdote-filled page-turner of a book, Stone goes deep inside a company with colossal power, one we rely on for low-cost, wonderful service, and one that also kills many businesses and jobs. With rare access to Amazon executives, readers are taken inside Amazon meetings, see up close Jeff Bezos’s brilliance but also his belligerence, understand the trade-off between impressive efficiency versus the perils of market dominance, and get an up-to-the-moment appreciation of why government is now awake to the monopoly dangers posed by digital giants like Amazon.’ (Ken Auletta, author of Googled )
‘Amazon’s reach is so extensive that it can seem easier to list the few areas of commerce that it doesn’t touch than the many it does. Stone even-handedly describes the history, expansion and major personalities of the company.’ (Curtis Sittenfeld, my favourite non-fiction books The Week)
‘There are really only a handful of writers who can craft a page-turning narrative about the most transformative business ideas. Brad Stone is one. His topic of choice – Amazon and its founder Jeff Bezos – is equal to his journalistic skill. In this book, he gives us his second must-read account of how the world’s most important company and technology titan captured not only global retail, but Washington, Hollywood, outer space and your brain.’ (Rana Foroohar, author of Makers and Takers and Don’t Be Evil )
Antifragile: Things that Gain from DisorderRs. 2,390.00Add to cart
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Really made me think about how I think — Mohsin Hamid ― Guardian
Nassim Taleb, in his exasperating but compelling book Antifragile, praises “things that gain from disorder” – people, policies and institutions designed to thrive on volatility, instead of shattering in the encounter with it — Oliver Burkman ― Guardian
More than just robust or flexible, it actively thrives on disruption — Julian Baggini ― Guardian
Taleb takes on everything from the mistakes of modern architecture to the dangers of meddlesome doctors and how overrated formal education is. . . . An ambitious and thought-provoking read . . . highly entertaining ― Economist
[Taleb] writes as if he were the illegitimate spawn of David Hume and Rev. Bayes, with some DNA mixed in from Norbert Weiner and Laurence Sterne. . . . Taleb is writing original stuff-not only within the management space but for readers of any literature-and . . . you will learn more about more things from this book and be challenged in more ways than by any other book you have read this year. Trust me on this ― Harvard Business Review
What sometimes goes unsaid about Taleb is that he’s a very funny writer. Taleb has a finely tuned BS detector, which he wields throughout the book to debunk pervasive yet pernicious ideas. . . . Antifragility isn’t just sound economic and political doctrine. It’s also the key to a good life ― Fortune

You may have heard the key to habit formation is starting small. But you’ve likely never considered starting as small as James Clear suggests in his new book Atomic Habits. ― New York Times

A special book that will change how you approach your day and live your life. — Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle is the Way
If you are someone looking to gain some knowledge about creativity, happiness, health, productivity, picking this book is the right choice. [Clear’s] book is the proper blueprint that tells how to form some good habits, let go of your bad ones and what little changes one needs to bring to become better. And in case you thought it is all talk, let us tell you the book is packed with evidence-based strategies. Clear’s book actually has the potential to change a lot of things. ― Entrepreneur
Illuminating . . . The attractive message . . . is that life doesn’t have to be a chore or a bore . . . The first move toward order might be a step as small as putting on your exercise clothes. ― Wall Street Journal

An inspirational memoir that also rings true — Gaby Wood ― Daily Telegraph, Five Stars
Obama’s memoir is a genuine page-turner, full of intimacies and reflections. . . Allied to this candour is a steeliness of purpose. It is no exaggeration to say that every page of this book is, explicitly or otherwise, a reproach to Donald Trump, and a call-to-arms to those who would defeat the 45th President and all that he stands for — Matt D’Ancona ― Evening Standard
This is a rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall she’s a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life, warts and all. . . it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction, with a similar warm languid tone to Ann Patchett’s novel Commonwealth — Viv Groskop ― i, Five Stars
This revealing memoir offers new insights into her upbringing on the south side of Chicago and the highs and lows of life with Barack Obama. . . Becoming is a 400-page expansion of this essential doctrine [‘when they go low, we go high’], without compromising a refreshing level of honesty about what politics really did to her. I have read Barack Obama’s two books so far, and this is like inserting a missing piece of reality into the narrative of his dizzying journey — Afua Hirsch ― Guardian
I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter, not because of any seedy insight into stories I’d always wondered about, but because, armed as I was with knowledge about her career, her mannerisms, and even her elbow-heavy dancing, this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more — Kuba Shand-Baptiste ― Independent
Inspiring. . . After 421 pages of Becoming, I closed the book hoping that one day she would use her formidable intelligence, humanity – and humour – to offer a more tangible vision for how America might fight the rising tides of polarisation and hate ― Financial Times
Open and engaging. . . Obama writes with candour about the good times and bad ― Daily Express
Of course, Becoming is Michelle Obama’s story, of how she moved from a girl on the South Side of Chicago to becoming one of the most powerful women in the world. But in the final pages of the book, Obama writes, “It’s all a process, steps along a path. Becoming requires equal parts patience and rigor.” Here, Obama is pushing us to reckon with our own becomings – to realise our own story and to have the power to tell it ― The Pool
She’s a woman we’ve all fallen in love with because she radiates joy and wisdom, and Becoming encapsulate this perfectly. It’s also deeply honest – reading it makes you feel as though she’s your close friend opening up to you ― Red Online

— from the foreword by Gregg Braden, New York Times best-selling author of Human by Design and The Divine Matrix
“Becoming Supernatural takes the idea of realizing your full potential to a crazy new level. Joe Dispenza has done an outstanding job of creating a 21st-century operator’s manual for the human body and brain by combining his vast experiential wisdom with compelling case studies, exciting scientific research, and the exercises his students have used to do everything from healing their bodies to dramatically altering the course of their lives. He’s a man on a mission, and while the idea of Becoming Supernatural is a BIG promise, this book delivers hands down!”
— Cheryl Richardson, New York Times best-selling author of Take Time for Your Life

As our savvy guide, Dr. Dispenza takes readers further than ordinary awareness to understand the infinite quantum field of consciousness which goes beyond the senses and beyond space and time. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to explore the extraordinary nature of consciousness and healing.”
— Judith Orloff, M.D., author of The Empath’s Survival Guide
“Dr. Joe Dispenza has a single-minded mission: to help all of us to shed the limitations of the present and reclaim the multidimensional life that we were born to lead. By underpinning deceptively simple practices with hard brain science, Dr. Joe proves that the supernatural is in fact our natural state of being—and also within our ready grasp. Fasten your seatbelts. Read this book, sample his paradigm-busting techniques, and be prepared for a wild ride into your limitless potential.”

Beyond Good And EvilRs. 1,790.00Add to cart
Beyond Good and Evil: Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future is a book by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886. It draws on and expands the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but with a more critical and polemical approach. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche accuses past philosophers of lacking critical sense and blindly accepting dogmatic premises in their consideration of morality. Specifically, he accuses them of founding grand metaphysical systems upon the faith that the good man is the opposite of the evil man, rather than just a different expression of the same basic impulses that find more direct expression in the evil man. The work moves into the realm “beyond good and evil” in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

Jordan B. Peterson
“The Peterson way is a harsh way, but it is an idealistic way—and for millions of young men, it turns out to be the perfect antidote to the cocktail of coddling and accusation in which they are raised.” —DAVID BROOKS, New York Times
“Jordan Peterson is universally revered—and feared—for his incredible intellect and emotional insight.” —DAVE RUBIN, host of The Rubin Report and author of Don’t Burn This Book
“We live in a time when so many young (and not so young) people feel lost . . . Mr. Peterson talks about the attitudes that will help find the path. It is not a politically correct or officially approved path, but it is an intensely practical and yet heightened one: This life you’re living has meaning.” —PEGGY NOONAN, Wall Street Journal
Most immediately interesting for its account of what happened to the author in the past year… All this is related with remarkable equanimity… The book contains the most lucid and touching prose Peterson has written. — James Marriott ― The Times
Reliably thought-provoking, often engrossing … Peterson has a sharp eye for the vagaries of human nature, and he can be a compelling storyteller, especially when narrating his own experiences and those he has observed from life. There is a fair amount of wisdom in Beyond Order, of the kind that used to be called common sense. — Jenny McCartney ― UnHerd
Part quest, part adventure, part lecture and part polemic… There’s masses of passion, masses of wisdom and a deep, deep yearning for us all to seek the beauty, truth and meaning Peterson has sometimes glimpsed and is desperate for us to find. He has had tens of thousands of letters from people who say he has helped them to find it. How many writers can say they have done that? — Christina Patterson ― Sunday Times
Peterson is a deep thinker with tremendous powers of articulation and a captivating sense of wonder. A master storyteller, he draws on a multitude of sources, including his personal life, clinical practice and long marriage to enlighten readers about the fundamentals of human behavior and our civilization. Beyond Order is a call for action and self-improvement. It is a mind-blowing journey where the lessons learnt are lessons for life ― The Jerusalem Post

Body Language: How to Read Others’ Thoughts by Their Gestures
Rs. 1,790.00Read more
Decrypting body language has been a fascinating subject for me. There are a number of different ‘theories’ for interpreting our common gestures. Allan Pease’s Body Language is book is a brief, well-organized and easy to understand guide book which contains the basics of non-verbal communication. With everything being explained from a practical standpoint, readers of any understanding of the subject could read the book quite easily. – Tharindu Dissanayake
Many years ago, one of my martial arts instructors made his students read this book. At the end of the lesson he would set a chapter to read before we came back for next week’s lesson. Reading that chapter was not optional, because he would ask each student something about the homework chapter. We thought his fascination with the book was a little strange to begin with, but we quickly learned otherwise. We didn’t know it at the time, but our instructor was teaching us about situational awareness. Reading body language is a big part of situational awareness, and most instructors don’t have time (or the knowledge) to go into the fine details of the subject. This is a great book that everyone should read at least once in their lives, it’s easier to avoid trouble if you can read the moods of the people around you. – Beau Johnston
Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships and Lasting HappinessRs. 2,990.00Read more
David Perlmutter, Austin Perlmutter, Kristin Loberg
By showing us how to consciously rewire our brains for connection, compassion, and better decisions, Brain Wash provides a framework for reclaiming joy and health in the modern world. ― Deepak Chopra, author of Metahuman
‘Brain Wash reveals how our day-to-day decisions are deeply influenced and actively manipulated by the modern world. But more importantly, it is a powerful manual that allows each of us to reclaim control of our choices and make better decisions that will pave the way for health and happiness. While we generally know what’s best for ourselves, acting on this knowledge is a constant struggle. Brain Wash allows us to turn this knowledge into action. I highly recommend this innovative book.’ ― Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder, Amen Clinics and author of The End of Mental Illness
‘In a world where most of us are feeling rushed, tired, and burned out, Brain Wash reveals how even small changes in your lifestyle choices can dramatically improve your day, your mood, and even your life.’ ― Melissa Hartwig Urban, Whole30 Co-Founder and CEO
‘This book was a total surprise. A father and son representing entirely different generations arrive at the same conclusion: that wellness fosters connection and this creates a meaningful life. Beautifully scripted and a bit like an adventure story, I kept wanting to get to the ‘final message’ of how being well makes us more loving and lovable. This is the endpoint where well-being takes us, and this is especially critical in our disconnected digital age with its constant distractions. Do yourself a favor and get this book.’ ― ohn Ratey, MD, author of Spark
‘Inflammation, enhanced by so many influences of our modern world, dramatically reduces our ability to make good decisions and feel content. Brain Wash not only explores how this is happening, on a global scale, but also shows what we can do right now to take back control. From spending time in nature to choosing to consume one plant-based meal a day, Brain Wash provides the tools to reclaim and rebuild your brain’s ability to make better choices and allow health and happiness to flourish.’ ― Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Food and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine
Brain Wash provides the tools for each of us to live a happier, more contented life. Drs. David and Austin Perlmutter engage our most current understanding of neuroscience to reveal how the brain can be functionally reconfigured to distance ourselves from pervasive negativity and welcome empathy and compassion back into our lives. The choices we make each day in terms of what we eat, how well we sleep, and even how we interact with our digital world all contribute to our worldview. And central to the Brain Wash mission is maximizing these and other choices towards seeing and creating a better world. ― Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School, and author of The Healing Self

‘Who would have thought something as simple as changing the way we breathe could be so revolutionary for our health, from snoring to allergies to immunity? A fascinating book, full of dazzling revelations’ –Dr. Rangan Chatterjee
‘In the past few years, there have been several potentially life-changing books, from Matthew Walker’s Why We Sleep and Shane O’Mara’s In Praise of Walking, to Norman Doidge’s The Brain’s Way of Healing. Breath deserves a place alongside such volumes. Read it, and I guarantee you will want to change the way you breathe’ — Evening Standard
A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe – and how we’ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time. I already feel calmer and healthier just in the last few days, from making a few simple changes in my breathing, based on what I’ve read. Our breath is a beautiful, healing, mysterious gift, and so is this book — Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
‘If you want to read a book about the power of the breath, this is it!’ — Patrick McKeown, author of The Oxygen Advantage
‘A transformative book that changes how you think about your body and mind’ — Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein
‘I don’t say this often, but when I do I mean it: this book changed my life. Breath is part scientific quest, part historical insight, part Hero’s Journey, full of groundbreaking ideas, and a rollicking good read. I had no idea that the simple and intuitive act of inhaling and exhaling has taken such an evolutionary hit. As a result, I figured out why I sleep so badly and why my breathing feels so often out-of-sync. With a few simple tweaks, I fixed my breathing and fixed myself. A transformational book’ — Caroline Paul, author of The Gutsy Girl

Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street
Rs. 2,690.00Read more
“More than two decades after Warren [Buffett] lent it to me—and more than four decades after it was first published—Business Adventures remains the best business book I’ve ever read . . . Brooks’s deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then.” —Bill Gates, The Wall Street Journal
“[Brooks] provides the early version of what we think of as Malcolm Gladwell–style or Freakonomics-style lessons. . . . But Brooks features another trait that modern business writers, whether James Stewart, Malcolm Gladwell, or Michael Lewis, do not. Brooks is truly willing to give up his own views to get inside the mind of all his subjects.” —National Review
“The prose is superb. Reading Brooks is a supreme pleasure. His writing turns potentially eye-glazing topics (e.g., price-fixing scandals in the industrial electronics market) into rollicking narratives. He’s also funny. . . . He tells entertaining stories replete with richly drawn characters, setting them during heightened moments within the world of commerce.” —Slate

Capital (Das Capital)Rs. 3,990.00Add to cart
Capital is a critical analysis of capitalism as political economy and how it is the precursor of the socialist mode of production. Karl Marx proposes that the motivating force of capitalism is in the exploitation of labour, whose unpaid work is the ultimate source of profit and surplus value. The employer can claim right to the profits (new output value), because he or she owns the productive capital assets (means of production), which are legally protected by the State through property rights. In producing capital (money) rather than commodities (goods and services), the workers continually reproduce the economic conditions by which they labour. Capital proposes an explanation of the “laws of motion” of the capitalist economic system, from its origins to its future, by describing the dynamics of the accumulation of capital, the growth of wage labour, the transformation of the workplace, the concentration of capital, commercial competition, the banking system, the decline of the profit rate and land-rents.

“It seems safe to say that Capital in the Twenty-First Century, the magnum opus of the French economist Thomas Piketty, will be the most important economics book of the year―and maybe of the decade. Piketty, arguably the world’s leading expert on income and wealth inequality, does more than document the growing concentration of income in the hands of a small economic elite. He also makes a powerful case that we’re on the way back to ‘patrimonial capitalism,’ in which the commanding heights of the economy are dominated not just by wealth, but also by inherited wealth, in which birth matters more than effort and talent.”―Paul Krugman, New York Times
“In its magisterial sweep and ambition, Piketty’s latest work, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, is clearly modeled after Marx’s Das Kapital. But where Marx’s research was spotty, Piketty’s is prodigious. And where Marx foresaw capitalism’s collapse leading to a utopian proletariat paradise, Piketty sees a future of slow growth and Gilded Age disparities in which the wealthy–owners of capital–capture a steadily larger share of global wealth and income…Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is an intellectual tour de force, a triumph of economic history over the theoretical, mathematical modeling that has come to dominate the economics profession in recent years. Piketty offers a timely and well-reasoned reminder that there is nothing inevitable about the dominance of human capital over financial capital, and that there is inherent in the dynamics of capitalism a natural and destabilizing tendency toward inequality of income, wealth and opportunity.”―Steven Pearlstein, Washington Post
“Magisterial… Bursting with ideas… This book is economics at its best.”―Philip Roscoe, Times Higher Education
“In Capital in the Twenty-first Century, Piketty sums up his research, tracing the history and pattern of economic inequality across a number of countries from the eighteenth century to the present, analyzing its causes, and evaluating some policy fixes. Spanning nearly 700 densely packed pages, it’s a big book in more than one sense of the word. Clearly written, ambitious in scope, rooted in economics but drawing on insights from related fields like history and sociology, Piketty’s Capital resembles nothing so much as an old-fashioned work of political economy by the likes of Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Karl Marx, or John Maynard Keynes. But what is particularly exciting about this book is that, due to advances in technology, Piketty is able to draw on data that not only spans a substantially longer historical time frame, but is also necessarily more complete and consistent than the records earlier theorists were forced to rely on. As a result, his analysis is significantly more comprehensive than those of his predecessors― and easily as persuasive… Capital is a consistently engrossing read, encompassing topics including the stunning comeback that inherited wealth has made in today’s advanced economies, the dubiousness of the economic theory that a worker’s wage is equal to his or her marginal productivity, the moral insidiousness of meritocratic justifications of inequality, and more. But the book’s major strength lies in Piketty’s ability to see the big picture. His original and rigorously well-documented insights into the deep structures of capitalism show us how the dynamics of capital accumulation have played out historically over the past three centuries, and how they’re likely to develop in the century to come… America’s twenty-first-century inequality crisis is, if anything, even more daunting and complex than the one we experienced a century ago. But as Piketty reminds us, the solutions to this problem are political, and they lie within our grasp. Should Americans choose to deploy those solutions, not only would we be doing the right thing, we’d be living up to our deepest traditions and most cherished ideals.”―Kathleen Geier, Washington Monthly

“Kocienda reveals the real secret of Steve Jobs’s leadership and Apple’s magic: the ability to push people to think for themselves, and to empower them to turn their best thinking into reality. It is a story about the intersection of technology and humanity.” ―Kim Scott, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Candor
“Ken Kocienda played pivotal roles in the creation of both Safari and the original iPhone. One of the hardest problems―and biggest risks―of the first iPhone was the development of a multi-touch keyboard. I placed this formidable responsibility squarely in Ken’s hands, and the success of the keyboard emerged from his insights, collaboration, and dogged pursuit of excellence. He now offers readers, in his own words, a window into his experiences and insights from the trenches.” ―Scott Forstall, Original iPhone Software Team Leader and SVP iOS, Apple

“Entrepreneurial professionals must develop a competitive advantage by building valuable skills. This book offers advice based on research and reality–not meaningless platitudes– on how to invest in yourself in order to stand out from the crowd. An important guide to starting up a remarkable career.”―Reid Hoffman, co-founder & chairman of LinkedIn and co-author of the bestselling The Start-Up of You: Adapt to the Future, Invest in Yourself, and Transform Your Career
“Do what you love and the money will follow’ sounds like great advice — until it’s time to get a job and disillusionment quickly sets in. Cal Newport ably demonstrates how the quest for ‘passion’ can corrode job satisfaction. If all he accomplished with this book was to turn conventional wisdom on its head, that would be interesting enough. But he goes further — offering advice and examples that will help you bypass the disillusionment and get right to work building skills that matter.”―Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
“This book changed my mind. It has moved me from ‘find your passion, so that you can be useful’ to ‘be useful so that you can find your passion.’ That is a big flip, but it’s more honest, and that is why I am giving each of my three young adult children a copy of this unorthodox guide.”―Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick, WIRED magazine

Didn’t See That Coming : Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls ApartRs. 2,190.00Add 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.

[A] superb memoir… Westover’s journey from a remote corner of the American west to one of the world’s grandest seats of learning is extraordinary . . . Her story, of fighting to be herself, is as old as the hills she came from, but Westover gives us such a fresh, absorbing take that it deserves to bring her own private Idaho into the bestseller lists, book groups and, eventually, cinemas. ― The Times
Brilliantly recounts her journey towards knowledge and enlightenment — Blake Morrison ― Guardian
Her story is remarkable, as each extreme anecdote described in tidy prose attests. That someone who grew up in her circumstances could achieve as much as she has is astonishing . . . The central tension she wrestles with throughout her book is how to be true to herself without alienating her family. Her upbringing was extraordinary, but that struggle is not. ― The Economist
Marvellous. There is no feeling like discovering a young writer who is springing up fully armed with so much talent — Stephen Fry

Rs. 3,290.00Read more
‘One of the most sympathetic and also scientifically interesting biographies of Einstein ever to appear in print… a fascinating read’ –Focus
‘Kaku is a skilful and genial populariser… While this is fully a biography, succinctly revisiting Einstein’s difficult childhood and unpromising early career, his two marriages and his emergence as a 20th-century cultural icon, the guiding thread is undoubtedly the evolution of his ideas’ –Sunday Telegraph
“Thanks to Michio Kaku, you don’t have to be an Einstein to understand Einstein. Einstein’s Cosmos weaves together Einstein’s life and science the way Einstein himself wove together time and space.” –Dr Ken Croswell, author of Magnificent Universe and Magnificent Mars

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

“[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

“Mark Manson has succeeded in explaining a crazy world to an entire generation by invoking hard science, moral philosophy, and gobs of hilarious wit. This book is guaranteed to make you laugh, question your beliefs, and (hopefully) change your life.” (Nir Eyal, bestselling author of Hooked and Indistractable)

A hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases. — Barack Obama
One of the most important books I’ve ever read-an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world. — Bill Gates
Factfulness … , a light-hearted but data-rich book, calibrates our view of the world and explains how our cognitive processes can lead us astray — Steven Pinker ― New Statesman, The best books of 2018
A powerful antidote to pervasive pessimism and populist untruths. — Andrew Rawnsley ― Observer, Book of the Year
A wonderful guide to an improving world, as well as being a well-stocked source of sound advice as to how to think about factual and statistical claims . . . The book is a pleasure to read – simple, clear, memorable writing – and when you’ve finished you’ll be a lot wiser about the world. You’ll also feel rather happier . . . Factfulness – the relaxing peace of mind you get when you have a clearer view of how the world really is . . . I strongly recommend this book. — Tim Harford
Hans Rosling tells the story of “the secret silent miracle of human progress” as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly. — Melinda Gates
Factfulness has the power to shift your entire perspective. If you want to understand the world, read it now! — Rolf Dobelli
Factfulness is a fabulous read, succinct and lively.

Fallen Leaves: Last Words on Life, Love, War, and God
Rs. 2,790.00Read more
Praised as a “revelatory” book by The Wall Street Journal, this is the last and most personal work of Pulitzer Prize–winning author and historian Will Durant, discovered thirty-two years after his death.
“Fallen Leaves is in some ways a slight book. But it is also a revelatory one. Most of Durant’s work is about the thoughts and actions of others. Fallen Leaves is very much about the thoughts of Will durant concerning—well, almost everything. You’ll find short essays on childhood, old age, death, war, politics, capitalisn, art, sex, God and morality. … Above all, Fallen Leaves is a portrait of a sensibility. … Durant was a remarkable specimen of that nearly extinct species, a civilized liberal of wide learning and even wider sympathy for the fundamentals of human aspiration.” ― The Wall Street Journal
“Short but persuasive commentaries on a diversity of topics from a respected scholar of humanity.” ― Kirkus Reviews
“Some passages, such as his observations on youth and middle age, are personal and specific, while others, such as his ruminations on the existence of God, border on philosophy. . . . [And others] still carry a beneficial sting, such as his thoughts on war and nationalism and his plea for racial harmony (Durant’s civil rights advocacy dated back to 1914). . . . a thought-provoking array of opinions.” ― Publishers Weekly
“Some of his musings are provocative, even outrageous…this is a work that demands we think, and it is a worthy conclusion to a long and distinguished career.” ― Booklist
Farmageddon: The True Cost Of Cheap MeatRs. 1,990.00Add to cart
Lymbery brings to this essential subject the perspective of a seasoned campaigner – he is informed enough to be appalled, and moderate enough to persuade us to take responsibility for the system that feeds us ― Guardian Book of the Week
This eye-opening book, urging a massive rethink of how we raise livestock and how we feed the world, deserves global recognition ― Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
A devastating indictment of cheap meat and factory farming. Don’t turn away: it demands reading and deserves the widest possible audience ― Joanna Lumley
This incredibly important book should be read by anyone who cares about people, the planet, and particularly, animals ― Jilly Cooper
There’s no end to techno-idiocy in pursuit of profit. But far more concerning is Lymbery’s contention that the wastefulness of feeding human-edible plants and fish to animals is not just absurd but catastrophic. The main reason for hacking down the remaining South American forest is to grow soy to feed the pigs and chickens of China ― Evening Standard
This meaty account makes a distinctive and important contribution, eschewing the narrowly domestic focus of many of its predecessors in favour of a global investigation … An engaging read – and it also gives a full enough picture of the situation in the UK to preclude any smugness on the part of the British reader. Anyone after a realistic account of our global food chain, and the changes necessary for a sustainable future, will find much to get their teeth into here ― Felicity Cloake, New Statesman
