Outliers;Malcolm Gladwell

KShs1,450.00

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of “outliers”–the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different?

His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.

  • Even though everyone is talking about it there is no concept in business today more muddled than strategy Richard Rumelt described by McKinsey Quarterly as a giant in the field of strategy and strategy s strategist tackles this problem head on in a jargon free explanation of how to develop and take action on strategy in business politics and beyond Rumelt dispels popular misconceptions about strategy such as confusing it with ambitions visions or financial goals by very practically showing that a good strategy focuses on the challenges a business faces and providing an insightful new approach for overcoming them His sharp analysis and his brilliant bold style make his book stand out from its competitors something that Rumelt himself says is crucial Rumelt has always challenged dominant thinking ever since in he was the first person to uncover a statistical link between corporate strategy and profitability and this is his long awaited tour de force.

  • Find comfort in dark times and grow your trust and faith in God with this inspiring and insightful guide from Lakewood Church pastor and #1 New York Times bestselling author Joel Osteen.

    All of us will go through dark times that we don’t understand: a difficulty with a friend, an unfair situation at work, a financial setback, an unexpected illness, a divorce, or the loss of a loved one. Those types of experiences are part of the human journey. But when we find ourselves in such a place, it’s important that we keep a positive perspective. Joel Osteen writes that if we stay in faith and keep a good attitude when we go through challenges, we will not only grow, but we will see how all things work together for our good. Through practical applications and scriptural insight, Blessed in the Darkness focuses on how to draw closer to God and trust Him when life doesn’t make sense.

    If we will go through the dark place in the valley trusting, believing, and knowing that God is still in control, we will come to the table that is already prepared for us, where our cup runs over.

  • Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery; one a slave trader’s wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow. Taking us from the Gold Coast of Africa to the cotton-picking plantations of Mississippi; from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and seven generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel – the intimate, gripping story of a brilliantly vivid cast of characters and through their lives the very story of America itself.

  • ‘A beguiling exploration of how flexibility can contribute to creativity, purpose and happiness.’ Justine Roberts, founder of Mumsnet

    ‘Straight-talking self-help… Inspiring words, practical help and a fresh way of seeing things that we’ll be forcing on just about everyone we know.’Stylist

    ‘A no-nonsense guide to thinking and behaving more flexibly in order to have a happier, better, less frenetic life’ Marie Claire

    As featured in Sunday Times Style, Stella, Stylist, Grazia, The Sun, Bustle, Marie Claire

    Reinventing the rules for a smarter, happier life.

    Flex is a creative, rebellious way to live. It’s about looking at routines (like the nine to five) and social norms (like women bearing the brunt of the ’emotional load’ at home) and bending and re-shaping them.

    Flex is looking within and understanding yourself, your body and the patterns of your relationships, and working out how to live, earn money and be happy in a way that is perfect for you and your unique talents.

    Flex is knowing that the world is changing fast. The jobs we were trained for in school won’t exist in a decade. The career ladder has been replaced with the portfolio.

    If you feel stuck, tired, not at your best, bored… this book is for you.

    If you are burning with ideas but stuck in an environment that squashes them… this book is for you.

    If you are a rebel at heart… this book is for you.

    Flex is reinventing the rules for a smarter, happier future.

  • Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game.
