“A powerful and penetrating exploration of what separates great companies and great leaders from the rest.” -Polly LaBarre, coauthor of Mavericks at Work
Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty?
In studying the leaders who’ve had the greatest influence in the world, Simon Sinek discovered that they all think, act, and communicate in the exact same way-and it’s the complete opposite of what everyone else does. People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.
Drawing on a wide range of real-life stories, Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire.

Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf DobellKSh1,295.00Add to cart
Have you ever…
Invested time in something that, with hindsight, just wasn’t worth it?
Overpaid in an eBay auction?
Continued doing something you knew was bad for you?
Sold stocks too late, or too early?
Taken credit for the success, but blamed the failure on external circumstances?
Backed the wrong horse?
These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day to day thinking. But by knowing what they are and how to spot them, we can avoid them and make better choices whether dealing with a personal problem or a business negotiation trying to save money or make money working out what we do or don’t want in life, and how best to get it.

Up & Ahead: Use Strategy to Succeed in Life and Work by Sunny BindraKSh1,895.00Add to cart
Strategic thinking is an essential life skill that business leaders, entrepreneurs, and marketing strategists have mastered for business success. If you’re new to this way of thinking, you might feel bogged down with academic texts and esoteric theories. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Using decades of experience as a strategy advisor, Sunny Bindra delivers a simple and practical method for thinking about and applying strategy to your business and life in Up & Ahead. Written to deliver deep insights with an easy and natural light touch, without any unnecessary theory or jargon, Bindra’s book distills strategy into four manageable steps:
1. DIAGNOSE: What’s really going on in our world and what we need to become
2. POSITION: Where we choose to play and how we think we might win
3. INSPIRE: How we will explain this to our people and excite them with it
4. ACT: The concerted action sets we need to make this strategy happen
Even if you have learned strategy formally, Up & Ahead will help you unlearn all that was unnecessary, so that the necessary can take prominence.
The silent patient;Alex MichaelidesKSh1,595.00Add to cart
The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband―and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive.
Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.
Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.
Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations―a search for the truth that threatens to consume him….

Lives of the Stoics: The Art of Living from Zeno to Marcus Aurelius By Ryan HolidayKSh1,895.00Read more
From the bestselling authors of The Daily Stoic comes an inspiring guide to the lives of the Stoics, and what the ancients can teach us about happiness, success, resilience and virtue.
Nearly 2,300 years after a ruined merchant named Zeno first established a school on the Stoa Poikile of Athens, Stoicism has found a new audience among those who seek greatness, from athletes to politicians and everyone in between. It’s no wonder; the philosophy and its embrace of self-mastery, virtue, and indifference to that which we cannot control is as urgent today as it was in the chaos of the Roman Empire. In Lives of the Stoics, Holiday and Hanselman present the fascinating lives of the men and women who strove to live by the timeless Stoic virtues of Courage. Justice. Temperance. Wisdom. Organized in digestible, mini-biographies of all the well-known–and not so well-known–Stoics, this book vividly brings home what Stoicism was like for the people who loved it and lived it, dusting off powerful lessons to be learned from their struggles and successes. More than a mere history book, every example in these pages, from Epictetus to Marcus Aurelius–slaves to emperors–is designed to help the reader apply philosophy in their own lives. Holiday and Hanselman unveil the core values and ideas that unite figures from Seneca to Cato to Cicero across the centuries. Among them are the idea that self-rule is the greatest empire, that character is fate; how Stoics benefit from preparing not only for success, but failure; and learn to love, not merely accept, the hand they are dealt in life. A treasure of valuable insights and stories, this book can be visited again and again by any reader in search of inspiration from the past.
