If you are someone who has been turning to non-fiction to understand the world better in the midst of a global pandemic, we have got you covered. From self-help to motivational reads, here are some of our recent releases and all-time bestsellers to keep you immersed in the time of #lockdown.
‘A must-read’: Mark Manson
We are living through a crisis of distraction. Plans get sidetracked, friends are ignored, and work never seems to get done.
Why does it feel like we’re distracting our lives away?
In Indistractable, behavioural designer Nir Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving you to distraction. Empowering and optimistic, this is the book that will help you design your time, realise your ambitions, and live the life you really want.
While it is often said that a person with a negative attitude cannot be helped, it is also true that a person with a positive attitude cannot be stopped. Life is an obstacle course in which we can often become our own biggest obstacle, but a positive attitude can be transformational.
In one sense, this book is a road map for a life journey in achieving more. It offers direction and can help you make positive decisions in a noisy and cluttered environment. Success is neither a miracle nor a mystery. It is the natural outcome of consistently applying certain principles on an ongoing basis. Success does not depend upon special skills, formal education or superior intelligence. Success is a matter of understanding and acting upon principles that have been in existence for centuries. These principles may be simple in themselves, but none of them will work unless they are put into firm and decisive actions.
This book effectively teaches not only the principles of success but also how to avoid expensive and demoralising mistakes. The principles themselves are universal, cutting across country, culture and religion. Diligently practising them will help you develop confidence and allow your life to become more meaningful and rewarding. Applying these principles may require a lot of self-discipline and commitment but, once learned and applied, the results can be rewarding and gratifying.
If you want to be successful and happy, then become a student and study the life of successful people in-depth; if you want to become wealthy, then study the principles of acquiring wealth. Learning to make a living and learning to live are two different things. This book helps you design a more meaningful life, by making positive choices and avoiding the most common pitfalls.
Acquiring facts is knowledge; interpreting facts is understanding; and the proper application of facts is wisdom. This book by Shiv Khera is designed to help you create an action plan to optimize your potential—in other words, to achieve more.
The groundbreaking bestseller that redefines intelligence and success
Does IQ define our destiny? Daniel Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow and that our emotions play a major role in thought, decision making, and individual success. Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy, and social deftness are all qualities that mark people who excel: whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. With new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality, Goleman shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us.
The highest-selling inspirational book in India that has sold over 2.7 million copies.

In today’s time and age, life is fast, and we juggle several roles at the same time.

A comprehensive compilation, this will help you manage your emotional troubles better and will prove to be a journey of hope.
