Confidence - Thomas Chamorro-Premuzic

Confidence by Thomas Chamorro-Premuzic is an eye-opening rethink of the value of self-belief. We're told that the key to success in life and business is confidence: believe in yourself, and the world is yours. But building confidence can be a challenging task. And, as leading psychologist Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic argues, confidence can actually get in the way of achievement; self-esteem is nothing without competence, the core skills, to back it up.

Selling in Tough Times by Tom Hopkins puts his real-world, in-the-trenches experience to work and shares his plan to reverse the momentum of tough times--and even capitalize on them. Tough Times can be brought on by any number of factors: a down economy, Mother Nature, shifts in customers' needs, national tragedy--the list goes on and on.

The Internet is not the Answer - Andrew Keen

The Internet is not the Answer by Andrew Keen argues that, on balance, the Internet has had a disastrous impact on all our lives. By tracing the history of the Internet, from its founding in the 1960s to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989, through the waves of start-ups and the rise of the big data companies to the increasing attempts to monetize almost every human activity, Keen shows how the Web has had a deeply negative effect on our culture, economy and society.

War and Gold - Kwasi Kwarteng

War and Gold by Kwasi Kwarteng starts with Spanish conquistadors discovering the New World. The vast quantities of gold and silver would make their country rich, yet the new wealth, which was plunged into multiple wars, would eventually lead to the economic ruin of their empire. Here, historian and politician Kwasi Kwarteng shows that this moment in world history has been echoed many times, from the French Revolution to both World Wars, right up to the present day, when our own financial crisis saw many of our great nations slip into financial trouble.

The Reckoning - Jacob Soll

The Reckoning by Jacob Soll shows how the use and misuse of financial bookkeeping has determined the fates of entire societies. Time and again, Soll reveals, good and honest accounting has been a tool to build successful companies, states and empires. Yet when it is neglected or falls into the wrong hands, accounting has contributed to cycles of destruction that continue to this day.

The Roaring Nineties - Joseph E Stiglitz

The Roaring Nineties by Joseph E Stiglitz argues that much of what we understood about the prosperity of the 1990s is wrong. Although jobs were created, technology prospered, inflation fell and poverty was reduced, this book asserts that this decade actually laid the foundations for the economic problems we now face. Stiglitz argues that the theories that have been used to guide world leaders and anchor key business decisions were fundamentally outdated.
