At the core of Smarter Faster Better are eight key concepts—from motivation and goal-setting to focus and decision-making—that explain why some people and companies get so much done. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology and behavioural economics—as well as the experiences of CEOs, educational reformers, four-star generals, FBI agents, airplane pilots and Broadway songwriters—this book explains that the most productive people, companies, and organisations don’t merely act differently.

Focusing on the Hindustan Socialist Republican Army (HSRA), A Revolutionary History delivers a fresh perspective on the ambitions, ideologies and practices of this influential organisation formed by Chandrashekhar Azad and Bhagat Singh, and inspired by transnational anti-imperial dissent. It is a new interpretation of the political impact of Indian revolutionaries who advocated the use of political violence against the British.

The Sialkot Saga
Ashwin Sanghi
Westland
Pp 584
R350

The trajectories of Arvind and Arbaaz, both ‘businessmen’ of a kind whose lives are unwillingly intertwined, ricochet off one another while they play out their sinister and murderous plots of personal and professional one-upmanship, all the while breaking every rule in the book. Both are unaware that what they seek and fight over is the very obstacle in realising an ancient secret that dates back to a time long forgotten. Ashwin Sanghi weaves together threads of the past and present, fact and fiction, while dangling readers over the cliff with this multi-layered book.
