Author: Jim Collins and Bill Laizer
Beyond Entrepreneurship became a leadership staple, particularly among small and early-stage companies. And while Collins would go on to write a series of famous bestsellers that have sold more than ten million copies worldwide, this lesser-known early work remains the favourite of many of his loyal readers. Now, with Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0, Collins re-shares the timeless insights in Beyond Entrepreneurship alongside new perspectives gleaned after decades of additional research into what makes great companies tick. In Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0, you'll learn how to turn your company into the 2.0 version of itself. You'll be challenged to grow your own leadership as your company grows, from 1x to 2x to 5x to 10x. You'll learn Collins's newest reflections on people decisions, insights that extend beyond his seminal "first who" principle about getting the right people on the bus. You'll learn why luck favours the persistent, and what it means to look for "who luck." You'll learn about the origins of the "BHAG" (Big Hairy Audacious Goal), and why even a small business needs a galvanising BHAG to have a complete and inspiring vision. You'll also unlock what Collins calls "The Map." The Map is a road map that pulls together the key concepts developed from thirty years of research and writing into one integrated framework for building a company that delivers superior results, makes a distinctive impact, and achieves lasting endurance. Finally, you'll learn the lessons that Jim Collins himself learned from the most influential mentor in his life, Bill Lazier. Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0 is the ambitious upgrade to a classic. In Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0, you'll discover that the goal to turn your business into an enduring great company is as relevant - and as within your reach - as ever.

Author: Simon Sinek Simon Sinek's recent video on 'The Millennial Question' went viral with over 150 million views.
Start With Why is a global bestseller and the TED Talk based on it is the third most-watched of all time. Why are some people and organizations more inventive, pioneering, and successful than others? And why are they able to repeat their success again and again? In business, it doesn't matter what you do, it matters WHY you do it.
Start With Why analyses leaders like Martin Luther King Jr and Steve Jobs and discovers that they all think in the same way - they all started with why. Simon Sinek explains the framework needed for businesses to move past knowing what they do to how they do it, and then to ask the more important question- Why? Why do we do what we do? Why do we exist? Learning to ask these questions can unlock the secret to inspirational business.
Sinek explains what it truly takes to lead and inspire and how anyone can learn how to do it.

Author: Phil Knight ‘A refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like… He tells his story as honestly as he can. It’s an amazing tale. It’s real.’ - Bill Gates In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed $50 from his father and created a company with a simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost athletic shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the boot of his Plymouth, Knight grossed $8000 in his first year. Today, Nike's annual sales top $30 billion. In an age of start-ups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all start-ups, and the swoosh has become one of the most ubiquitous and recognisable symbols in the world today. For the first time, Phil Knight spells out the complete story behind that success, peeling back the gloss of a global multinational to reveal the pitfalls and glories of founding – and building – Nike. From the almost accidental nature of the company logo to the vast complexities of a leading edge business split around the globe, Shoe Dog is very much a business bible for the 21st century.

Author: Sukhinder Singh Cassidy Each one of us dreams of possibility - in our careers and in our personal lives. But our pursuit of possibility is hamstrung by the Myth of the Single Choice, which has led us to believe that one large choice stands between us and success, and that a single failure may topple us should we choose 'wrongly'. Influenced by this myth, we let fear trump possibility: we become paralyzed. Sukhinder Singh Cassidy is one of the most highly regarded and well-respected tech executives in Silicon Valley, but she'll be the first to admit that her path to success has been far from linear. While she has started three companies including theBoardlist (an organization designed to promote and place women on corporate boards), and she just served as president of StubHub, which sold for $4 billion, she's also encountered failed choices, misfires, unexpected headwinds, and all other types of pitfalls that she had to learn how to confront, analyze, navigate, and incorporate into her new path forward. Drawing on her own experience and those of other leaders, Sukhinder shows that when people thrive, it's because their fear of missing out on an opportunity (FOMO) overtakes their fear of failure (FOF) and compels them to take action. Better yet, they keep acting, building a fundamental risk-taking muscle that underweighs the importance of any single choice in favour of continually 'choosing'. In Choose Possibility you will see that personal success does not come from making one singular 'correct' or 'big' decision. Rather, long-range success comes from tackling numerous choices that are aimed to optimize future possibilities.

There are new kinds of intelligence forming. Computers are beginning to teach themselves with spectacular results. But in our excitement over the promise of neural networks and deep learning, we have neglected the most important development of all. Superminds - groups of people and computers working together - can act more intelligently than any person, group, or computer has ever done before. They already make many of our most important decisions, whether through the hierarchy of a multinational company or the democracy of a nation state. And they will do a lot more. Groundbreaking and utterly fascinating, Superminds shows that instead of fearing the rise of artificial intelligence we should be focusing on what we can achieve by working with computers - because together we will change the world.
