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.

  • 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.

    When she is sent to an orphanage at the age of eight, Beth Harmon soon discovers two ways to escape her surroundings, albeit fleetingly: playing chess and taking the little green pills given to her and the other children to keep them subdued. Before long, it becomes apparent that hers is a prodigious talent, and as she progresses to the top of the US chess rankings she is able to forge a new life for herself. But she can never quite overcome her urge to self-destruct. For Beth, there’s more at stake than merely winning and losing.

    Confessions of Nairobi Women book by Joan Thatiah

     

    Confessions of Nairobi Women’ is a collection of thirteen true candid stories told to Joan Thatiah. The stories are as awe-inspiring as they are
    heart-wrenching.

    There is a story of a woman who confesses to nursing thoughts of wanting to kill her husband, another of a young woman whose whirlwind romance ends with her behind bars, and a soon-to-be bride who
    wonders why she wants it all the darn time. Finally, an Instagram business owner admits there is more to her success than praying and hydrating.

    The book offers a candid look into the life of a Nairobi woman today, the societal hurdles and decisions she faces, and the consequences that follow
    SORRRY!
