Description of Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder(Paperback) by Richard Dawkins
This is a dazzling, passionate polemic against anti-science movements of all kinds. Keats accused Newton of destroying the poetry of the rainbow by explaining the origin of its colours. In this illuminating and provocative book, Richard Dawkins argues that Keats could not have been more mistaken, and shows how an understanding of science enhances our wonder of the world. He argues that mysteries do not lose their poetry because they are solved: the solution is often more beautiful than the puzzle, uncovering even deeper mysteries. Dawkins takes up the most important and compelling topics in modern science, from astronomy and genetics to language and virtual reality, combining them in a landmark statement on the human appetite for wonder.

Description of The Leadership Sutra : An Indian Approach To Power (English)(Hardcover) by Devdutt Pattanaik
The Leadership Sutra offers startling and original insights into the exercise of power and leadership. It is derived from Business Sutra, the influential book that formulated original management and business techniques that were wholly made in India. Durga is the goddess of power in Hinduism, as well as in Buddhism and Jainism. Her name is derived from the word fortress (durg). She is the goddess of kings. She rides a lion, the king of the jungle and a symbol of royalty everywhere from China to England. We tend to tiptoe around the role of power in management, and fail to openly acknowledge how the animal desire to dominate often destroys the best of organizations. Critics tend to see power as a negative thing. But power is a critical tool that affects the implementation of any idea. Any attempt to restrain it with rules results in domestication and resentment, and fails to energize the organization. Leaders often equate themselves with lions, and indulge their desire to dominate when, in fact, the point of leadership is to be secure enough to outgrow the lion within us, and enable and empower those around us. But this is not easy, as anxiety overpowers the best of leaders.

Derived from Devdutt Pattanaiks influential bestseller Business Sutra, this book offers startling and original insights into the exercise of power and leadership. It explores the human quest for significance, the power of rules to rob people of self-esteem, and the need for stability even at the cost of freedom.

Features:

  • By Devdutt Pattanaik, the author of more than a dozen bestselling books on mythology and management, leading columnist for business newspapers and one of the countrys foremost motivational speakers.
  • The book takes a practical and distinctive look at startling and original insights into the exercise of power and leadership using stories, symbols and rituals from Hindu, Jain and Buddhist mythologies.
  • Devdutt Pattanaik hosted widely popular TV show Business Sutra on CNBC. His TED talk on mythology and management received over 8, 10,000 hits online.
  • The Leadership Sutra carries creative and informative illustrations by the author that elaborate the concepts being discussed.
  • Plenty of insightful anecdotes and examples of people from all walks of life that readers can relate to.

    To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee


    Description of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

    It revolves around two characters who are children i.e brother and sister. It is a story about their neighbors and how their acts get them into trouble as well as endear them to a particular neighbor who seem to be abnormal and hence does not want any interaction with anyone.

    The book has a way of narration which is slow but not boring. It is a very tough task to write a book where nothing big happens but small events and their effects are brilliantly coalesced together and gives the story a nice gentle flow. Worth trying if you are okay with slow pace and want a break from thrillers and Sci-fi novels.

    Description of The Man Who Knew Infinity (English)(Paperback) by Robert Kanigel
    Srinivasa Ramanujan was an enigma during his lifetime and continues to be one, even today. Ramanujan was born into a poor Brahmin family in Madras, and his parents were financially unable to support him after his initial schooling, which is one of life’s little ironies, since his contributions to the world of mathematics are inspiring and brilliant.

    Kanigel doesn’t stop with focusing on the protagonist, and provides a peek into the setting in which Ramanujan was groomed and raised. He describes how the education system in India works, the orthodox nature of Ramanujan’s family, and his premature marriage to a very young girl.

    He takes readers through how, after writing to many mathematicians and several failed attempts to make himself heard, luck finally aided Ramanujan when G.H. Hardy, an English mathematician, realized his gift. Ramanujan received a scholarship to continue with his study and research in the field of Pure Mathematics. Hardy managed to get him to England, where Ramanujan worked closely with him and other Cambridge mathematicians.

    Kanigel also acquaints the world with the canons that guide the Indian society, and in Ramanujan’s case, all these hampered with his mathematical explorations. Unable to comply with cultural norms, he became a social outcast. An arranged marriage to a minor, who suffered a great deal under his mother’s ill-treatment, left him in a state of anxiety and distress.

    Unfortunately, in England, he contracted tuberculosis and his battle against the disease deterred his further discoveries. He succumbed to the illness at the early age of 32. It is to be noted that some of his unfinished work is still being analyzed by mathematicians.

    The Man Who Knew Infinity was written by Robert Kanigel in the year 1991. The verity of the information provided in the biography evinces extensive research and the book received and continues to receive positive reviews in India and abroad.

    About Robert Kanigel

    Robert Kanigel is a Brooklyn-born biographer and science writer. After completing a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, he began freelance writing in 1970 and published his first book in 1986.
