  • Ego Is the Enemy

    The instant Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and international bestseller,???While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image with sheer, almost irrational force, I???ve found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.??? ???from the prologue,Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back.,Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to his??tory. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by con??quering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well.,In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, ???you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you???ve set out to achieve.???

Readers will learn what they can do in their own lives and communities to harness the power of movement to create happiness, meaning, and connection.

  • The Wisdom of Crowds

    In this landmark work, NEW YORKER columnist James Surowiecki explores a seemingly counter-intuitive idea that has profound implications. Decisions taken by a large group, even if the individuals within the group aren’t smart, are always better than decisions made by small numbers of ‘experts’. This seemingly simply notion has endless and major ramifications for how businesses operate, how knowledge is advanced, how economies are (or should be) organised and how nation-states fare. With great erudition, Surowiecki ranges across the disciplines of psychology, economics, statistics and history to show just how this principle operates in the real world.,Along the way Surowiecki asks a number of intriguing questions about a subject few of us actually understand – economics. What are prices? How does money work? Why do we have corporations? Does advertising work? His answers, rendered in a delightfully clear prose, demystify daunting prospects. As Surowiecki writes: ‘The hero of this book is, in a curious sense, an idea, a hero whose story ends up shedding dramatic new light on the landscapes of business, politics and society’.
