    Measure What Matters is about using Objectives and Key Results (or OKRs) to make tough choices on business priorities. It’s about communicating these objectives throughout the company from entry-level to CEO and it’s about collecting timely, relevant data to track progress – to measure what matters.

    When Google first started out, its founders had amazing technology, entrepreneurial energy and sky-high ambition but no business plan. John Doerr taught them a proven approach to operating excellence that has helped them achieve greatness. He has since shared OKRs with more than fifty companies with outstanding success.

    In this book, Larry Page, Bill Gates, Bono, Sheryl Sandberg and many more explain how OKRs have helped them exceed all expectations and run their organisations with focus and agility.

  • JM Kariuki The history of any society is simultaneously the story of that society, and that of the activities of the principal actors within the society in different epochs. As the society moulds the lives and destinies of the individuals within it, some of the individuals, in their own way, contribute to the moulding of that society. Such then are the individuals who leave their footsteps on the sands of time.

    The series Makers of Kenya’s History was conceived with a view to telling the stories of those sons and daughters of Kenya who have made an outstanding contribution to the unfolding of her history. Although the stories have been cast in the traditional historical mould, care has been taken to carefully step down the narrative so as to appeal more readily to the curious individuals who have been active on the Kenyan stage, in different was of life.

    This particular volume focuses on the life of one of independent kenya’s most flamboyant politicians: Josiah Mwangi Kariuki, popularly known as JM. It is a life full of nationalist agitation, fight for the rights of the poor and landless, and determination to fight neo-colonialism. JM was modest and philanthropic up to the time he was assassinated in March 1975.

  • There is no great plot or major events, apart from the ones mentioned. Much of the novel is about how a relatively ordinary man struggles and more or less manages to survive given the problems he faces, some of his own making, some because of the corrupt nature of others. Indeed, the corruption of contemporary Kenya is a key point in the novel, as we see ordinary people cheated by the rich and powerful, generally black. Ben does manage to survive, with the help of his friend and with his generally positive nature but it is a struggle for him and it is this struggle that is what this novel is about.
