Overcoming Anxiety Paperback – by Dr. Tim Cantopher
The evidence that long-term anxiety causes a whole host of health problems is incontrovertible, as is the fact that it exacerbates existing problems, such as pain. The causal link between anxiety and heart disease, strokes, bowel diseases, inflammatory conditions and some cancers is well established. Reducing our anxiety would improve our long-term health as clearly as exercise and good diet. It would also allow us to perform better in whatever we are doing. The good news is that we can do something fairly quickly about stress and anxiety. This book examines characteristic thinking patterns in anxiety such as predictions, catastrophic thinking and assumptions, and looks at ways to accept and change the processes of anxiety. Topics include:
Triggers of anxiety and panic
Anxiety threshold – how much can we take?
Traumatic anxiety (PTSD)
Fears and phobias ie flying, claustrophobia
Physical causes including hormonal (post-partum and menopause)
What is a ‘nervous breakdown’?
When to see the doctor
Treatments – talking therapies, medication
Getting better, staying well

Everything will have you falling in love with Natasha and Daniel as they fall in love with each other!
Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

Execution, The discipline of getting things done;Larry Bossidy & Ram CharanKShs2,995.00Add to cart
Disciplines like strategy, leadership development, and innovation are the sexier aspects of being at the helm of a successful business; actually getting things done never seems quite as glamorous. But as Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan demonstrate in Execution, the ultimate difference between a company and its competitor is, in fact, the ability to execute.
Execution is “the missing link between aspirations and results,” and as such, making it happen is the business leader’s most important job. While failure in today’s business environment is often attributed to other causes, Bossidy and Charan argue that the biggest obstacle to success is the absence of execution. They point out that without execution, breakthrough thinking on managing change breaks down, and they emphasize the fact that execution is a discipline to learn, not merely the tactical side of business. Supporting this with stories of the “execution difference” being won (EDS) and lost (Xerox and Lucent), the authors describe the building blocks–leaders with the right behaviors, a culture that rewards execution, and a reliable system for having the right people in the right jobs–that need to be in place to manage the three core business processes of people, strategy, and operations.

The Campus Exile book By Collins Sakwah Ongoma
Life in a Kenyan University is a far cry from the fantasy that lodges in the minds of high-schoolers or the regular lecture hall – hostel routine that parents imagine. It is a real boot camp and can be worse than the dreaded military drills.Danger, despair, euphoria, and sometimes death, all lurk within the walls of the campus. Life’s toughest lessons are not taught in lecturer halls, laboratories, and libraries as parents think, but within university corridors, between the decks of the iron-squeaky-beds in hostels and the streets when the students seek the night city bliss. Life’s greatest lessons are learned during weekends when drugs, alcohol, and sex are freely available and house parties are ticketless. A first-year student embarked on a dangerous mission to expose a ‘career student’ working with a prominent Nairobi drug lord to sell drugs to the comrades. When Alvin threatened Otiato that he was going to report him to the police for selling drugs to students, selling rooms to non-students, and killing any student that stood on his way, he did not anticipate the horror that he encountered. Enjoying protection from the police and the school administration, Otiato found immense joy in torturing Alvin with the help of his brutal goons. However, without relenting in his mission, Alvin’s quest to liberate the comrades from the oppressive University administration, greedy student leaders, and peddlers like Otiato was amplified after the comrades implore him earnestly to lead them into the streets to fight for their rights.
Drawn in a fictitious setting around The University of Nairobi, The Campus Exile; book one of The Campus Exile Trilogy spares nothing while taking the reader inside the world of drug addiction, drug peddling, sex, prostitution, crime and the illegal art of making money to survive within the campus which in most cases is ravaged by brokenness and destitute.
Escobar: The Inside Story of Pablo Escobar, the World’s Most Powerful Criminal by Roberto Escobar (Author)KShs1,390.00Add to cart
The incredible bestselling true story of the rise and reign of the most wanted criminal in history, told by the one man who was with him every step of the way – his brother Roberto.
Murderer, philanthropist, drug dealer, politician, devil, saint: many words have been used to describe Pablo Escobar, but one is irrefutable – legend.
For the poor of Colombia, he was their Robin Hood, a man whose greatness lay not in his crimes, but in his charity; for the Colombian rich he was just a bloodthirsty gangster, a Bogie Man used to scare children in their beds; for the rest of the world flush with his imported cocaine, he was public enemy number one. During his reign as the world’s most notorious outlaw, he ordered the murder of thousands – at one point even bombing a passenger jet – smuggled drugs into the US in mini-submarines inspired by Bond films, was elected to parliament, staged midnight escapes through the jungle from whole army battalions, built his own prison, consorted with presidents, controlled an estimated fortune of over $20 billion, and for over 3 years outwitted the secret American forces sent to kill him.
His ambition was as boundless as his violence, and neither was ever satisfied. This is the first major, and definitive, biography of this remarkable criminal life, told in jaw-dropping detail by the one man who, more than any other, can understand just how far he came and just how low he fell: his brother, Roberto Escobar.
The 21 irrefutable laws of leadership; John C MaxwellKShs2,090.00Add to cart
What would happen if a top expert with more than forty years of leadership experience was willing to distill everything he had learned about leadership into a handful of life-changing principles just for you? It could change your life. John C. Maxwell has done exactly that in the new 10th Anniversary Edition of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. He has combined the insights learned from his forty-plus years of leadership successes and mistakes with observations from the worlds of business, politics, sports, religion, and military conflict. The result is a revealing study of leadership delivered only as a communicator like Maxwell can. Find out why . . . ~ Abraham Lincoln went from militia captain to private during the Black Hawk War ~ Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France wins were made possible because of good leadership ~ So many people lost their lives or got stranded during the Katrina disaster in New Orleans ~ The CEO of the world’s ninth-largest retailer has a no-frills office, answers his own phone, and takes a salary that puts him in the bottom 10 percent of CEOs ~ Henry Ford nearly sent his own company into bankruptcy ~ The Law of the Lid is the most important leadership principle you will ever learn All these issues and more are explained in this revised and updated The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. Like them or not, the laws of leadership govern your personal and organizational effectiveness. “Everything rises and falls on leadership,” says Maxwell. “These laws carry consequences with them. I’ve seen them at work in more than ninety countries around the world. Apply the laws and people will follow you. Violate or ignore them, and you will not be able to lead others. But here’s the good news: every one of the laws can be learned.”
