    At Amazon, 'Day One' is code for inventing like a startup with little regard for legacy. Day Two is, in Jeff Bezos's own words, is 'stasis, followed by irrelevance, followed by excruciating, painful decline, followed by death.'

    Most companies today are set up for Day Two. They build advantages and defend them fiercely rather than invent the future. But Amazon and fellow tech titans Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are operating in Day One- they prioritize reinvention over tradition and collaboration over ownership.

    Through 130 interviews with insiders, from Mark Zuckerberg to hourly workers, Always Day One reveals the tech giants' blueprint for sustainable success. Kantrowitz uncovers the engine propelling the tech giants' continued dominance at a stage when most big companies begin to decline. And he shows the way forward for everyone who wants to compete with, and beat, the titans.

    'I learned much from this book. Priya Parker has created both an art and a science to gathering in ways that can bring joy and fulfillment to any meeting.' - Deepak Chopra MD

    'This is a must-read!' - Chris Anderson, owner and curator of TED

    'A fantastic book' - Forbes

    'Remarkable' - Bustle

    We spend our lives gathering - first in classrooms and then in meetings, weddings, conferences and away days. Yet so many of us spend this time in underwhelming moments that fail to engage us, inspire us, or connect us. We've all sat in meetings where people talk past each other or go through the motions and others which galvanize a team and remind everyone why they first took the job. We've been to weddings that were deeply moving and others that were run-of-the-mill and simply faded away.

    Why do some moments take off and others fizzle? What's the difference between the gatherings that inspire you and the ones that don't?

    In The Art of Gathering, Priya Parker gets to the heart of these questions and reveals how to design a transformative gathering. An expert on organizing successful gatherings whether in conference centres or her living room, Parker shows us how to create moving, magical, mind-changing experiences - even in spaces where we've come to expect little.

    Title: As a Man Thinketh: The Complete Original Edition
    Author: ALLEN JAMES

    James Allen's revolutionary treatise on the power of thought, combined with the bonus audiobook Mastery of Destiny.

    Originally published in 1903, James Allen's As A Man Thinketh reveals the fundamental truth of human nature: "A man is literally what he thinks." Allen's deceptively simple principle has changed the lives of millions of readers and listeners, making As A Man Thinketh a classic bestseller for decades.

    Allen explains that our character, identity, ability, and success are all determined by the thoughts in our minds. Instead of finding ourselves victims of the world, there exists within each of us the ability to shape and define our own destinies. Finances, health, social status, and success are all external manifestations of the thoughts that populate our minds. Allen offers listeners an opportunity to seize control of their minds and in doing so create the lives they've always imagined.

    This new edition combines As A Man Thinketh with another of Allen's companion works, Mastery of Destiny. In Mastery of Destiny, Allen shows that the natural progression of human evolution is away from the evil that results from ignorance and towards ultimate good. Combined in one program, these two audiobooks offer a revolutionary outlook of empowerment.

    Negotiation is a key skill for your job, your closest relationships, and even your everyday life, but often people shy away from it,& feeling like they're marching into battle or that they're settling for less. Enter Alexandra Carter, Clinical& Professor of Law and Director of the Mediation Program at Columbia University, NYC, who has taught students, business professionals and even the United& Nations for more than a decade on this very topic. In Ask for More: Ten Questions to Improve Your Negotiations, Your& Relationships and Your Life, Carter brings her breadth of knowledge to help anyone, regardless of their situation, ask for - and& get - more.

    Rather than adhering to the popular narrative that only the loudest and most assertive among us get what they want, Carter& invites readers to rethink negotiation entirely. Through asking open-ended questions rather than panicked ones, you'll be better& able to steer a conversation, a negotiation, and ultimately a relationship for long-term success. She teaches a simple, yet& powerful, ten-question framework for successful negotiation. The first five questions are the ones you first need to ask yourself& (called 'mirror' questions) and the last five are the ones you ask who you're negotiating with (called 'window' questions). The& responses to such questions as "what's brought me here?", "how do I feel?" and "what do I need?" will pave the way for a productive& conversation based on values and needs. Carter's method helps readers go far beyond one "yes" or handshake to create value& that lasts a lifetime.

    Set up a fee-free bank account (or jam jars!)

    Go on a Treasure Hunt around the house, and sell some of their 'stuff' second-hand

    Save your parents $100 on household bills

    Learn to cook at least two low-cost, delicious, nutritious meals from scratch.

    Title: Bezonomics: How Amazon Is Changing Our Lives, & What the World's Companies Are Learning from It

    Amazon is the business story of the decade. Jeff Bezos, the richest man on the planet, has built one of the most efficient wealth-creation& machines in history. Like a giant squid, Amazon's tentacles are squeezing industry after industry and, in the process,& upsetting the state of technology, the economy, job creation and society at large. So pervasive is Amazon's impact that business& leaders in almost every sector need to understand how this force of nature operates and how they can respond to it.

    Saying you can ignore Jeff Bezos is equivalent to saying you could ignore Henry Ford or Steve Jobs in the early& years of Ford and Apple. These titans monumentally changed how we do business, redefining the rules on a& global scale. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is the new disruptor on the block. He has created a 21st century algorithm for business& and societal disruption. He has turned the retail industry inside out, is swiftly dominating cloud computing, media and& advertising, and now has his sights trained on every other domain where money changes hands and business is transacted.

    But the principles by which Bezos has achieved his dominance - customer obsession, extreme innovation and long-term& management, all supported by artificial intelligence turning a virtuous-cycle 'flywheel' - are now being borrowed and replicated. 'Bezonomics' is for some a goldmine, for others a threat, for still others a life-shaping force, whether they're in business or not.

    Brian Dumaine's Bezonomics answers the fundamental question: how are Amazon and its imitators affecting the way we live,& and what can we learn from them?

    Title: Big Business: A Love Letter to an American Anti-Hero
    Author: TYLER COWEN

    We love to hate the 800-pound gorilla. Walmart and Amazon destroy communities and small businesses. Facebook turns us into addicts while putting our personal data at risk. From skeptical politicians like Bernie Sanders who, at a 2016 presidential campaign rally said, "If a bank is too big to fail, it is too big to exist," to millennials, only 42 percent of whom support capitalism, belief in big business is at an all-time low. But are big companies inherently evil? If business is so bad, why does it remain so integral to the basic functioning of America? Economist and bestselling author Tyler Cowen says our biggest problem is that we don't love business enough. In Big Business, Cowen puts forth an impassioned defense of corporations and their essential role in a balanced, productive, and progressive society. He dismantles common misconceptions and untangles conflicting intuitions. According to a 2016 Gallup survey, only 12 percent of Americans trust big business "quite a lot," and only 6 percent trust it "a great deal." Yet Americans as a group are remarkably willing to trust businesses, whether in the form of buying a new phone on the day of its release or simply showing up to work in the expectation they will be paid. Cowen illuminates the crucial role businesses play in spurring innovation, rewarding talent and hard work, and creating the bounty on which we've all come to depend.

This is simply not an acceptable state of affairs for your one shot at life. No matter your station, you possess incredible unique powers.

Awakening the Buddha and the Badass inside you is a process that will disrupt the way you work altogether. You'll gain access to tools that bend the very rules of reality.

    *& The Buddha is the archetype of the spiritual master. The person who can live in this world but also move with an ease, grace, and flow that comes from inner awareness and alignment.

    Title: Creativity Inc: Overcoming the Unseen Forces that Stand in the Way of True Inspiration
    Author: CATMULL ED

    As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: to make the world's first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream first as a Ph.D. student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged an early partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later and against all odds, Toy Story was released, changing animation forever. Since then, Pixar has dominated the world of animation, producing such beloved films as Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Up, and WALL-E, which have gone on to set box-office records and garner twenty-seven Academy Awards. The joyousness of the storytelling, the inventive plots, the emotional authenticity: In some ways, Pixar movies are an object lesson in what creativity really is. Now, in this book, Catmull reveals the ideals and techniques, honed over years, that have made Pixar so widely admired and so profitable. Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation Studios into the story meetings, the postmortems, and the 'Braintrust' sessions where art is born. It is, at heart, a book about how to build and sustain a creative culture but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, 'an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible.'

    Title: Crisis Ahead 101 Ways to Prepare for and Bounce Back from Disasters, Scandals & Other Emergencies
    Author: SEGAL EDWARD

    How many splashy scandals and crisis situations have befallen companies and public figures in the past week alone? How did the organizations and people at the center of those crises manage the situation? Did they survive with their reputations intact or are they facing an ongoing public nightmare that keeps building on itself in the era of social media?

    This new book from veteran public relations expert Edward Segal is based on the following premise: it's not a matter of IF a scandal or crisis will hit, it's WHEN. How a company deals with it will have lasting impact on their reputation, profits, and more. But for most organizations, when a crisis hits, they're caught off guard and ill-prepared. While essential, crisis plans are worthless unless properly executed, as the stories and examples featured throughout Crisis Ahead attest. Edward Segal's vivid and memorable accounts underscore the benefits of practicing and updating crisis plans at least once a year. The book also provides a template for creating a customizable crisis management plan.

    Crisis Ahead is for CEOs, senior staff, corporate communication professionals, HR and legal teams, boards of directors, and front-line employees who need to know what to do in the moment: what levers to pull and what moves to make in real time when faced with a crisis, scandal, or disaster. This book is written with the need for speed in mind. It's concise and practical with a light touch and occasional humor to help people on the front lines prepare for, survive, and bounce back from a crisis. It includes dozens of anecdotes, stories, and lessons about how companies, organizations, and individuals - ranging from Amazon, Apple, and the European Union, to Disney, Starbucks, and entrepreneur Elon Musk - have prepared for, created, managed, and communicated about crisis situations.

    Title: Dark Horse Achieving Success Through the Pursuit of Fulfillment
    Author: ROSE TODD & OGAS OGI

    For generations, we've been stuck with a cookie-cutter mold for success that requires us to be the same as everyone else, only better. This standard formula works for some people but leaves most of us feeling disengaged and frustrated. As much as we might dislike the standard formula, it seems like there's no other practical path to financial security and a fulfilling life. But what if there is?

    In the Dark Horse Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, bestselling author and acclaimed thought leader Todd Rose and neuroscientist Ogi Ogas studied women and men who achieved impressive success even though nobody saw them coming. Dark horses blaze their own trail to a life of happiness and prosperity. Yet what is so remarkable is that hidden inside their seemingly one-of-a-kind journeys are practical principles for achieving success that work for anyone, no matter who you are or what you hope to achieve. This mold-breaking approach doesn't depend on you SAT scores, who you know, or how much money you have. The secret is a mindset that can be expressed in plain English: Harness your individuality in the pursuit of fulfillment to achieve excellence.

    In Dark Horse, Rose and Ogas show how the four elements of the dark horse mindset empower you to consistently make the right choices that fit your unique interests, abilities, and circumstances and will guide you to a life of passion, purpose, and achievement.

    Title: Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World
    Author: NEWPORT CAL

    Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves your attention the most.

    When Cal Newport coined the term 'deep work' on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve. Most of us, after all, are excruciatingly familiar with shallow work instead - distractedly skimming the surface of our workload and never getting to the important part. Newport began exploring the methods and mindset that foster a practice of distraction-free productivity at work, and now, in DEEP WORK, he shows how anyone can achieve this elusive state.

    Through revealing portraits of both historical and modern-day thinkers, academics and leaders in the fields of technology, science and culture, and their deep work habits, Newport shares an inspiring collection of tools to wring every last drop of value out of your intellectual capacity. He explains why mastering this shift in work practices is crucial for anyone who intends to stay ahead in a complex information economy, and how to systematically train the mind to focus. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions we can make in an increasingly distracted world.

    Title: Dignity: Its Essential Role in Resolving Conflict
    Author: HICKS DONNA

    The desire for dignity is universal and powerful. It is a motivating force behind all human interaction-in families, in communities, in the business world, and in relationships at the international level. When dignity is violated, the response is likely to involve aggression, even violence, hatred, and vengeance. On the other hand, when people treat one another with dignity, they become more connected and are able to create more meaningful relationships. Surprisingly, most people have little understanding of dignity, observes Donna Hicks in this important book.Drawing on her extensive experience in international conflict resolution and on insights from evolutionary biology, psychology, and neuroscience, the author explains what the elements of dignity are, how to recognize dignity violations, how to respond when we are not treated with dignity, how dignity can restore a broken relationship, why leaders must understand the concept of dignity, and more. Hicks shows that by choosing dignity as a way of life, we open the way to greater peace within ourselves and to a safer and more humane world for all.

    A fun and fabulous take on the art of making mistakes. Erik Kessels celebrates imperfection and failure and shows why they are an essential part of the creative process.

    Failed it celebrates the power of mistakes and shows how they can enrich the creative process. This is part photobook and part guide to loosening up and making mistakes to take the fear out of failure and encourage experimentation.

    It showcases the best and most hilarious examples of imperfection and failure across a broad range of creative forms, including art, design, photography, architecture and product design, to inspire and encourage creatives to embrace and celebrate their mistakes.

    We live in an era when everyone is striving for perfection and we have become afraid of failure, which limits our potential. Mistakes help us find new ways of thinking and innovative solutions, and failures can change our perceptions and open up new ways of looking things. This book transforms mistakes from something to be embarrassed about into a cause for celebration.

    It includes over 150 visual examples drawn from Kessels personal collection of artworks and found photographs, along with tips, quotes, anecdotes and wisdom for celebrating with failure. To quote Kessels: 'the ubiquity of Apple + Z, means that we can literally undo any mistake before it has had time to breathe, be considered and perhaps evolve into something else: a fascinating, strange, provocative or even original piece of work. This book asks readers to embrace their fuck-ups, learn from them and celebrate their tawdry glory'."

    Could the courts really order the death of your innocent baby? Was there an illegal immigrant who couldn't be deported because he had a pet cat? Are unelected judges truly enemies of the people? Most of us think the law is only relevant to criminals, if we even think of it at all. But the law touches every area of our lives: from intimate family matters to the biggest issues in our society. Our unfamiliarity is dangerous because it makes us vulnerable to media spin, political lies and the kind of misinformation that frequently comes from loud-mouthed amateurs and those with vested interests. This 'fake law' allows the powerful and the ignorant to corrupt justice without our knowledge - worse, we risk letting them make us complicit. Thankfully, the Secret Barrister is back to reveal the stupidity, malice and incompetence behind many of the biggest legal stories of recent years. In Fake Law, the Secret Barrister debunks the lies and builds an hilarious, alarming and eye-opening defence against the abuse of our law, our rights and our democracy.

In today’s uncertain times, creating a secure financial future and the peace of mind that comes with it starts with taking action and taking control. Every day we are bombarded with news reports and information and opinions. How do we decipher fact from fiction? How do we differentiate between truth and lies? And determine what’s real…from what isn’t? Robert believes that it starts with education: financial education designed to make us smarter with our money and better able to fight what’s fake and use what isn’t to secure our financial future.
