Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success by Adam Grant
Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success by Adam Grant
‘Brimming with life-changing insights’ Susan Cain, author of Quiet
‘Excellent’ Financial Times
Everybody knows that hard work, luck and talent each plays a role in our working lives. In his landmark book, Adam Grant illuminates the importance of a fourth, increasingly critical factor – that the best way to get to the top is to focus on bringing others with you.
Give and Take changes our fundamental understanding of why we succeed, offering a new model for our relationships with colleagues, clients and competitors. Using his own cutting-edge research as a professor at Wharton Business School, as well as success stories from Hollywood to history, Grant shows that nice guys need not finish last. He demonstrates how smart givers avoid becoming doormats, and why this kind of success has the power to transform not just individuals and groups, but entire organisations and communities.

The Crown of beauty for Ashes;Thitu KaribaKShs795.00Add to cart
My Crown of Beauty for Ashes is a personal account of the author’s tribulations following early childhood sexual abuse. The abuse first occurs through a twisted and friendly gardener, and later escalates to other men, who molests and rapes her.
The abuse is so bad it sends the author to a streak of self-destructive tendencies and behaviour through alcoholism, indiscriminate sexual encounters – including same-sex liaison. A period of renewed rape in Tanzania results in a pregnancy by a side boyfriend from which a child is finally born. Despite a new sense to life, a return to the risky life by the narrator leads to depression and institutionalization.
However, through strong and loving friends, the narrator is able to overcome challenges, embracing a religion and personal acceptance.
The central theme is abuse. The book explores how this happens, the consequences, what may be done to avoid its recurrence and how to find healing from trauma and other negative consequences.
The author also expresses some liberal views on matters of education – an indictment of the Kenyan system – mainly from the author’s personal experience. The author extends this liberal viewpoint to matters relating to childhood care, religion and self-awareness.
The book is written from a first person point of view. All that is stated is true about real-life situations that happened to the narrator.

Ninety-nine percent of all leadership occurs not from the top but from the middle of an organization. Usually, an organization has only one person who is the leader. So what do you do if you are not that one person? And can you make an impact through your leadership even if you report to someone who is not a good leader? You don’t have to be held hostage to your circumstances or position, says author and trusted leadership mentor John C. Maxwell. What’s the secret? You learn to develop your influence from wherever you are in the organization. In this inspiring call-to-action, Maxwell shows middle managers how to leverage their unique positions and become 360-Degree Leaders by exercising influence in all directions—up (to the boss), across (among their peers), and down (to those they lead). The 360 Degree Leader will equip you with the skills you need to begin making a difference in your organization, career, and life, today—with or without the promotion.
