The forty rules of love;Elif Shafak

KShs1,450.00

In this lyrical, exuberant follow-up to her 2007 novel, The Bastard of Istanbul, acclaimed Turkish author Elif Shafak unfolds two tantalizing parallel narratives—one contemporary and the other set in the thirteenth century, when Rumi encountered his spiritual mentor, the whirling dervish known as Shams of Tabriz—that together incarnate the poet’s timeless message of love. Ella Rubenstein is forty years old and unhappily married when she takes a job as a reader for a literary agent. Her first assignment is to read and report on Sweet Blasphemy, a novel written by a man named Aziz Zahara. Ella is mesmerized by his tale of Shams’s search for Rumi and the dervish’s role in transforming the successful but unhappy cleric into a committed mystic, passionate poet, and advocate of love. She is also taken with Shams’s lessons, or rules, that offer insight into an ancient philosophy based on the unity of all people and religions, and the presence of love in each and every one of us. As she reads on, she realizes that Rumi’s story mir­rors her own and that Zahara—like Shams—has come to set her free.

  • Set in present-day Africa (Kenya?), this book is about your average whorehouse, though the name over the door says “Bar and Grill.”

    The first ten “employees” who show up to the whorehouse for work each afternoon (it’s open all night) get the opportunity to pole dance to make some extra money. The rest have to hustle whatever they can from whatever customers come that night.

    In this book, there is a suicide (or is it?), there is a murder (plus burying the body), and there is a catfight, with blood, between two of the women over the attention of Ngazi, the owner (a very unpleasant person). Ngazi attempts to rekindle his relationship with Teresa, his estranged wife. Ultimately, things do not end well.

  • As believers, our effective progress in life is endorse of growth and the Right
    Principles of Function. Nothing progresses effectively, unless by the Right Principles
    of Function. We are beings of principles! Thus, we reccive and respond to things,
    situations, people and circumstances, by virtue of the principles we know and
    engage accordingly. Our knowledge of the right principles is the factor that
    determines our progress and effectiveness in life. However, personal knowledge of
    principles is not cough. Arriving at a place of seeing desirable results, one has to
    engage all the right principles accordingly and with an in-depth of understanding
    the rules of engagement that determine effective results.
    Every passing minute, millions of people kecp making resolutions to change
    one thing or the other in their lives. Some of these resolutions work, just as others
    don’t. I call these resolutions Personal Agreements.’ Agreements to the Right
    Principles of Function, are what make for the backbone of our lives philosophy,
    theology and ideology. They necessitate the foundation of our successes or failures.
    We are conduits of cffective progress, by virtue of agreements to principles that
    birth results and their right engagement.
    The aim of this book is to create in you a resilient spirit that will not be rocked
    away by issues, challenges and troubles of life. It endeavors to reveal key principles
    that are needful to stay buoyant, during deleterious experiences, while helping you
    connect to the only true-source of power. The principles herein, will help you
    realize that life is not just the composite of what you see alone but what you don’t
    see. Thus, our understanding of principles determine at great capacity, the
    perspectives we have of life, situations, people, blessings, progress, stagnation,
    successes, or failures. How you manage your successes, failures, errors, or mistakes,
    determine not only your value but the knowledge, understanding and right
    engagement of principles

  • Be more effective with less effort by learning how to identify and leverage the 80/20 principle: that 80 percent of all our results in business and in life stem from a mere 20 percent of our efforts.

    The 80/20 principle is one of the great secrets of highly effective people and organizations.

    Did you know, for example, that 20 percent of customers account for 80 percent of revenues? That 20 percent of our time accounts for 80 percent of the work we accomplish? The 80/20 Principle shows how we can achieve much more with much less effort, time, and resources, simply by identifying and focusing our efforts on the 20 percent that really counts. Although the 80/20 principle has long influenced today’s business world, author Richard Koch reveals how the principle works and shows how we can use it in a systematic and practical way to vastly increase our effectiveness, and improve our careers and our companies.

    The unspoken corollary to the 80/20 principle is that little of what we spend our time on actually counts. But by concentrating on those things that do, we can unlock the enormous potential of the magic 20 percent, and transform our effectiveness in our jobs, our careers, our businesses, and our lives.

    Spielberg, Brin, Dell, Seinfeld―phenomenally successful . . . and Jewish.

    Why have Jews risen to the top of the business and professional world in numbers staggeringly out of proportion to their percentage of the American population? Steven Silbiger has the answer. Based on the author’s synthesis of wide reading and research, The Jewish Phenomenon sets forth seven principles that form the bedrock of Jewish financial success.

    With startling statistics, a wealth of anecdotes, and the fascinating details behind some of America’s biggest business success stories, Silbiger convincingly shows how these seven keys have helped the Jews historically and how they continue to ensure Jewish success today. More important, the author makes clear that these principles are equally at the disposal of Jews and non-Jews alike. The amazing success of the Jews simply proves that they work.

    The Jewish Phenomenon pays tribute not merely to the success of a people but to the commonsense wisdom and enduring values that can enrich us all.
