• Be the Hands and Feet: Living Out God’s Love for All His Children

    Nothing in life is as exciting and satisfying as introducing Jesus to people who have never met him.

    New York Times bestselling author and world-renowned motivational speaker Nick Vujicic is known worldwide as the man without arms and legs who personifies a “can do” spirit.

    Now in greater detail, he explains how the example of Jesus Christ motivates him to travel widely and speak boldly because the “good news” of the Gospel is just too good to keep quiet! Although the world has so many problems, no challenge is too great for the God who promises to move mountains.
    Using compelling stories from his own experience, Nick shares the heart of his message, the motivation behind all he does, and something that he believes the world needs now more than ever before: A faith in Jesus Christ that moves people to act and make the world a better place.

    Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup

    Winner of the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2018

    A New York Times Notable Book
    A Washington Post Notable Book

    “It’s no wonder Hollywood is turning this book into a movie. I couldn’t put this thriller down.” — Bill Gates

    “You will not want to put this riveting, masterfully reported book down. No matter how bad you think the Theranos story was, you’ll learn that the reality was actually far worse.” — Bethany McLean, bestselling coauthor of The Smartest Guys in the Room and All the Devils Are Here

    A New York Times bestseller to be adapted into a film with Jennifer Lawrence to star.

    In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup ‘unicorn’ promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes’s worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: the technology didn’t work.

    For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at the Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions, both Carreyrou and the Journal were threatened with lawsuits. Undaunted, the newspaper ran the first of dozens of Theranos’ articles in late 2015. By early 2017, the company’s value was zero and Holmes faced potential legal action from the government and her investors.

    In Bad Blood John Carreyrou tells the story of Theranos, and encourages us to consider the possible repercussions of our blind faith in a small group of brilliant individuals.

  • Everything is F*cked.

    We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.

    What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t—and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.

    Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

    With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before. It’s another counter intuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.

  • H3 Leadership: Be Humble. Stay Hungry. Always Hustle.

    From spending more than two decades alongside thought leaders such as Jim Collins and Malcolm Gladwell, as well as countless Fortune 500 CEOs and start-up entrepreneurs, leadership consultant Brad Lomenick has created a practical road map for helping anyone implement and live out the twenty transformational habits that he discovered to be common among the world’s most innovative leaders. In H3 Leadership, Lomenick organizes these twenty habits into three distinct filters he calls “the 3 Hs”:· Humble: Who am I?· Hungry: Where do I want to go?· Hustle: How will I get there?These attributes, and the habits it takes to create and nourish them, belong to the leader who is willing to work hard, get the task done, and make sure the mission is never about him or her. But becoming an H3 leader goes far beyond learning what all these are. It requires putting them into practice daily. Start your journey in developing the 3 Hs today!

    Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life (Hardcover)

    Are you tired of feeling fu*ked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unfu*ked version of yourself. ”Wake up to the miracle you are,” he directs. ”Here’s what you’ve forgotten: You’re a fu*king miracle of being.” It isn’t other people that are standing in your way, it isn’t even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it’s yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

    In Unfu*k Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions:

    I am willing.
    I am wired to win.
    I got this.
    I embrace the uncertainty.
    I am not my thoughts; I am what I do.
    I am relentless.
    I expect nothing and accept everything.

    Lead the life you were meant to have—Unfu*k Yourself.

  • The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Adversity to Advantage

    A guide not just for overcoming the obstacles that hold us back—but for using them for great benefit

    The great Athenian orator Demosthenes was born with a crippling speech impediment and was robbed of his inheritance by cruel guardians. Samuel Zemurray was a poor roadside fruit peddler pitted against the behemoth United Fruit Company. Ulysses S. Grant found himself stuck across the Mississippi river, desperately trying to break into the impenetrable fortress of Vicksburg.

    These icons and many others throughout history—from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Richard Wright to Steve Jobs—were often placed in nearly impossible situations that turned out to be the platforms for astounding triumphs. They were not exceptionally brilliant, lucky, or gifted. Their success in overcoming extreme obstacles was the result of a timeless set of philosophical principles that great men and women have always followed.

    Now Ryan Holiday unpacks those lessons and reframes them for today’s world, building on the wisdom of the ancient Stoics and a rich trove of examples. He shows us how to turn obstacles into advantages, through controlling our perceptions, swift and energetic action, and true force of will.
