  • The Book of War Sun Tzus The Art of War and Karl Von Clausewitzs On War

    The Book of War Sun Tzus The Art of War and Karl Von Clausewitzs On War

    Ksh 1799

    Brief Summary Civilization might have been spared much of the damage suffered in the world wars this century if the influence of Clausewitz's On War  had been blended with and balanced by a knowledge of Sun-tzu's The Art of Warfare.  --B.H. Liddel Hart For two thousand years, Sun-tzu's The Art of Warfare was the indispensable volume of warcraft. Although his work is the first known analysis of war and warfare, Sun-tzu struck upon a thoroughly modern concept: "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting." Karl von Clausewitz, the canny military theorist who famously declared that war is a continuation of politics by other means, also claims paternity of the notion "total war."   His is the magnum opus of the era of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic vars. Now these two great military minds are made to share the same tent, metaphorically speaking, in The Book of War. What a bivouac it is, and what a conversation into the night.

  • The Prosperity Paradox by Clayton M Christensen, Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon

    The Prosperity Paradox by Clayton M Christensen, Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon

    Ksh 3099

    Brief Summary The Prosperity Paradox: How Innovation Can Lift Nations Out of Poverty Clayton M. Christensen, the author of such business classics as The Innovator’s Dilemma and the New York Times bestseller How Will You Measure Your Life, and co-authors Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon reveal why so many investments in economic development fail to generate sustainable prosperity, and offers a groundbreaking solution for true and lasting change. Global poverty is one of the world’s most vexing problems. For decades, we’ve assumed smart, well-intentioned people will eventually be able to change the economic trajectory of poor countries. From education to healthcare, infrastructure to eradicating corruption, too many solutions rely on trial and error. Essentially, the plan is often to identify areas that need help, flood them with resources, and hope to see change over time. But hope is not an effective strategy. Clayton M. Christensen and his co-authors reveal a paradox at the heart of our approach to solving poverty. While noble, our current solutions are not producing consistent results, and in some cases, have exacerbated the problem. At least twenty countries that have received billions of dollars’ worth of aid are poorer now. Applying the rigorous and theory-driven analysis he is known for, Christensen suggests a better way. The right kind of innovation not only builds companies—but also builds countries. The Prosperity Paradox identifies the limits of common economic development models, which tend to be top-down efforts, and offers a new framework for economic growth based on entrepreneurship and market-creating innovation. Christensen, Ojomo, and Dillon use successful examples from America’s own economic development, including Ford, Eastman Kodak, and Singer Sewing Machines, and shows how similar models have worked in other regions such as Japan, South Korea, Nigeria, Rwanda, India, Argentina, and Mexico. The ideas in this book will help companies desperate for real, long-term growth see actual, sustainable progress where they’ve failed before. But The Prosperity Paradox is more than a business book; it is a call to action for anyone who wants a fresh take for making the world a better and more prosperous place.

    Talk to Me by James Vlahos

    Ksh 1599

    Brief Summary Talk to Me: How Voice Computing Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Think The next great technological disruption is coming The titans of Silicon Valley are racing to build the last, best computer that the world will ever need. They know that whoever successfully creates it will revolutionize our relationship with technology--and make billions of dollars in the process. They call it conversational AI. Computers that can speak and think like humans may seem like the stuff of science fiction, but they are rapidly moving toward reality. In Talk to Me, veteran tech journalist James Vlahos meets the researchers at Amazon, Google, and Apple who are leading the way.  He explores how voice tech will transform every sector of society: handing untold new powers to businesses, overturning traditional notions of privacy, upending how we access information, and fundamentally altering the way we understand human consciousness. And he even tries to understand the significance of the voice-computing revolution first-hand -- by building a chatbot version of his terminally ill father. Vlahos's research leads him to one fundamental question: What happens when our computers become as articulate, compassionate, and creative as we are?

  • Before You Say I Do by Lucy Natasha

    Before You Say I Do by Lucy Natasha

    Ksh 699

    Brief Summary BEFORE YOU SAY I DO: Falling in Love Without Falling Into Trouble While attending a sociology workshop in a higher learning institution, I asked a simple question; “what is love?” I was utterly surprised that none of the thousand students present could give me a satisfactory definition of love.  BEFORE YOU SAY I DO sheds much light on how to find true love that qualifies to graduate into marriage. It candidly helps you understand about: • How to identify true love  • How to fall in love without falling into trouble  • How to differentiate between love, lust and infatuation.  • Five types of men you must not marry  • Five types of women you must no marry  • Ten things you must never do when you fall in love  • Five wedding that must not take place  • Ten causes of marital delay  Love is more than a feeling, more than an emotion and more than a sensation.  According to the scripture, God is love. Every other affection outside God’s word is at best, conditional and at worst, fake. True love is God initiated and hence it is an expression of His nature and character.

Beautifully packaged with evocative artwork and design, it is the perfect gift for anyone with a well-worn copy of A New Earth who wants deeper insight into this seminal work.
