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.

    Oman. The ancient land of frankincense, windswept deserts, and turquoise seas.

    Into this magical nation come, three remarkable women, each facing a crossroad in her life.

    Rachel, an American war photographer, who is struggling to ~ shed the trauma of her career. Now she has to cover a quite different story — for a glossy travel magazine.

    Aviasa, a bubbly English woman who has rashly volunteered as Rachel’s ‘fixer’, a job she’s never heard of in a country she knows nothing about.

    And Miza, a young woman living far from her beloved homeland of Zanzibar. As the second wife of Tarig, she remains a secret from his terrifying ‘other’ wife, Maryam. Until one day, when Tariq fails to come home…

     

    These three women will quickly learn that, in Oman, things aren’t always what they appear to be…

    The Zanzibar Wife is a bewitching story of clashing cultures, of secrets and of revelations by the author of the international bestseller The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul.

  • Written by Namaste author Shefali Tsabary, PhD, with the Preface by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and advance acclaim by authors Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Wiliamson, Marci Shimoff, Laura Berman Fortgang, and other leaders in the field of parenting, this is the book we’ve all been waiting for.

    This innovative parenting style recognizes the child’s potential to spark a deep soul-searching leading to transformation in parents. Instead of being merely the receiver of the parents’ psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parent’s development.

    Once parents are learning alongside their children, power, control, and dominance become an archaic language. Instead, mutual kinship and spiritual partnership are the focus of the parent-child journey.

    Parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional shallowness. To handle the behavior that results from this, traditional books on parenting abound with clever techniques for control and quick fixes for dysfunctionality.

    In contrast, in Dr. Tsabary’s conscious approach to parenting, children serve as mirrors of their parents’ forgotten self.

    The parent who is willing to look in the mirror has an opportunity to establish a relationship with their own inner state of wholeness.

    Once a parent finds their way back to their essence, they enter into communion with their children. The pillars of the parental ego crumble as the parent awakens to the ability of their children to transport them into a state of presence.

  • PROFIT FIRST Transform Your Business from a Cash-Eating
    Monster to a Money-Making Machine REVISED AND EXPANDED
    MIKE MICHALOWICZ

     

    Author of cult classics The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur 

     

    offers a simple, counterintuitive cash management solution that will help small businesses break out of the doom spiral and achieve instant profitability.

    Conventional accounting uses the logical (albeit, flawed) formula: Sales – Expenses = Profit

    The problem is, businesses are run by humans, and humans aren’t always logical. Serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz has developed a behavioral approach to accounting to flip the formula: Sales – Profit = Expenses. Just as the most effective weight loss strategy is to limit portions by using smaller plates, Michalowicz shows that by taking profit first and apportioning only what remains for expenses, entrepreneurs will transform their businesses from cash-eating monsters to profitable cash cows. Using Michalowicz’s Profit First system, readers will learn that:

    · Following 4 simple principles can simplify accounting and make it easier to manage a profitable business by looking at bank account balances.
    · A small, profitable business can be worth much more than a large business surviving on its top line.
    · Businesses that attain early and sustained profitability have a better shot at achieving long-term growth.

    With dozens of case studies, practical, step-by-step advice, and his signature sense of humor, Michalowicz has the game-changing roadmap for any entrepreneur to make money they always dreamed of.

  • The best leaders not only lead well but also reflect on their leadership long enough and thoughtfully enough to articulate the philosophies that cause them to do so. Whether serving in the marketplace or in ministry, as executives or rank-and-file employees, as salaried staff or volunteer servants, good leaders can pinpoint the rationale for their actions and decisions with the ease of reciting their home address. In Axiom, author Bill Hybels divulges the God-given convictions that have dictated his leadership strategy for more than three decades as senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church. Oriented toward four key leadership categories … 1. Vision and strategy (“Promote Shameless Profitability,” “Take a Flyer”) 2. Teamwork and communication (“Obi-Wan Kenobi Isn’t for Hire,” “Disagree without Drawing Blood”) 3. Activity and assessment (“Develop a Mole System,” “Sweat the Small Stuff”) 4. Personal integrity (“Admit Mistakes, and Your Stock Goes Up,” “Fight for Your Family”) … Axiom brokers accessible wisdom from one leader’s journey, as well as emboldens you to nail down the reasons why you lead like you lead.

  • How Democracies Die: The International Bestseller: What History Reveals About Our Future by Steven Levitsky

    ‘The most important book of the Trump era’ The Economist

    How does a democracy die?
    What can we do to save our own?
    What lessons does history teach us?

    In the 21st century democracy is threatened like never before.

    Drawing insightful lessons from across history – from Pinochet’s murderous Chilean regime to Erdogan’s quiet dismantling in Turkey – Levitsky and Ziblatt explain why democracies fail, how leaders like Trump subvert them today and what each of us can do to protect our democratic rights.

    ‘This book looks to history to provide a guide for defending democratic norms when they are under threat, and finds that it is possible to fight back.’ David Runciman

    ‘A useful primer on the importance of norms, institutional restraints and civic participation in maintaining a democracy – and how quickly those things can erode when we’re not paying attention’ President Barack Obama

    ‘A must-read’ 
    Andrew Marr, Sunday Times

    ‘The greatest of the many merits of Levitsky and Ziblatt’s How Democracies Die is their rejection of western exceptionalism. They tell inspiring stories I had not heard before’ Nick Cohen, Observer

    ‘Provocative, timely. One of my favourite reads this year’ Elif Shafak

    ‘Anyone who is concerned about the future of democracy should read this brisk, accessible book. Anyone who is not concerned should definitely read it’ Daron Acemoglu, co-author of Why Nations fail
