The compelling, inspiring, (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.
One of the comedy world’s brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life. As host of the US hit show The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, he provides viewers around the globe with their nightly dose of biting satire, but here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers a deeply personal, heartfelt and humorous look at the world that shaped him.
Noah was born a crime, son of a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents’ indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the first years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, take him away.

In 1995, Goleman put his finger on a truth that we all intuitively know: Just because you’re “school smart” or have a high IQ doesn’t mean that you have the tools to achieve your professional and personal goals. The real key lies in “emotional intelligence,” a concept that’s now so widespread that we sometimes forget it wasn’t always a part of our lexicon. Being emotionally intelligent includes being able to motivate yourself, control your impulses and empathize with others and the good news is that it’s never too late to learn. Goleman’s book is still the gold standard in outlining the qualities we need to nurture, with thoughts on how to begin doing that, both at home and at work.

Sacred Jewish texts such as the Torah and the Kabbalah have long been considered repositories of some of the greatest wisdom ever assembled. Yet only the smartest and most successful business professionals take advantage of these powerful collections of advice. Using real-world business situations as illustrative examples, this book reveals a four-thousand-year-old blueprint for success.
Readers will find practical insights on:
conquering fear • harnessing will power • removing ego from the equation • mastering negotiation techniques • dealing with failure • utilizing spiritual entrepreneurship • harvesting the power of positivity • and finding the right balance of character traits to succeed in any career or business venture

“My dream with this book is simple – to show you that your leadership DNA sits alongside your biological DNA,” writes the management consultant Rhea Duttagupta. Well that’s a relief! Every manager has times when they doubt – for which, read panic about – their ability to channel their inner Churchill, so it is good to know that we all have the potential to be great leaders.
Duttagupta argues that everyone has the 10 special ingredients needed to create a strong leader. It is down to each of us to unlock our unique blend. So what is the recipe? First comes ‘self’ and then ‘expression’, which is followed by ‘focus’ – and so on and so on.
This is nothing that seasoned managers haven’t heard before, but Duttagupta’s emphasis on getting your mix right is both refreshing and reassuring. It might be that you lack ‘resilience’, or you might need more ‘instinct’, or perhaps you don’t create enough of the right kind of ‘luck’. If the latter is your problem, it’s not because you were born without a luck quotient – the capacity to create circumstances in which what we call luck can occur. It is more about your ability to attract and seize on opportunities to channel that luck. Isn’t it time you got lucky?

Around the globe, people are facing the same problem – that we are born as individuals but are forced to conform to the rules of society if we want to succeed. To see our uniqueness expressed in our achievements, we must first learn the rules – and then how to change them completely. Charles Darwin began as an underachieving schoolboy, Leonardo da Vinci as an illegitimate outcast. The secret of their eventual greatness lies in a ‘rigorous apprenticeship’: by paying close and careful attention, they learnt to master the ‘hidden codes’ which determine ultimate success or failure. Then, they rewrote the rules as a reflection of their own individuality, blasting previous patterns of achievement open from within. Told through Robert Greene’s signature blend of historical anecdote and psychological insight and drawing on interviews with world leaders, Mastery builds on the strategies outlined in The 48 Laws of Power to provide a practical guide to greatness – and how to start living by your own rules.

#1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell’s latest book will enhance the lives of leaders, professionals, and anyone who wants to achieve success and personal growth.
We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive as off limits rather than what’s really possible. Could it be that many of us have failed to expand our potential because we have allowed what we perceive as capacity to define us? What if our limits are not really our limits?
In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these capacities, and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identify, grow, and apply your critical capacities. Once you’ve blown the “cap” off your capacities, you’ll find yourself more successful–and fulfilled–in your daily life.

“Wine hath drowned more men (and women) than the sea”—Thomas Fuller, English clergyman and historian (1608 – 1661). And all this notwithstanding the fact that oceans cover just over 70% of the earth’s surface. In this captivating and illuminating exposition, Ann Njeri Mathu systematically recounts her odyssey from a full-time alcoholic to a teetotaller. What began as an innocuous sipping of traditional liquor, muratina, in the company of her father nearly ruined her persona and career. What’s more, her analysis of alcohol and alcoholism is both comprehensive and self-explanatory. Alcoholism is a disease that does not choose whom to attack. As you read the book you get the all-important good news that the war against alcoholism can be won. For 20 odd years, Njeri was at the bottommost of the deepest and darkest pit that alcoholism could offer. It was through her own admission and necessary help that she managed to free herself from the predicament. She has not tasted alcohol since 2005 and vows there’s no turning back. Sober Again is recommended to all youths and adults, given alcoholism is a disease that afflicts and or affects us. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

A moral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature.
In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
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.

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