41. Futurevision Scenarios for the World in 2040 (Large Print 16pt) - Richard Watson, Oliver Freeman

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The future is not what it used to be. In this volatile era, with the world changing rapidly, people are more curious than ever to know what lies ahead. Will relentless consumerism end up destroying our planet? Or can science and technology allow us to innovate our way out of trouble? Perhaps a greater social consciousness and community - based living will take over - or, conversely, the competition for limited resources may result in everyone fighting for themselves. Drawing on these four possible futures, Richard Watson and Oliver Freeman invite us to examine critically the risks and opportunities to come. They discuss the key factors, trends, critical uncertainties, and wildcards that will shape the future, guiding us to a greater awareness of long - term problems and possible solutions - and empowering us not only to adapt to what might happen, but also to shape our future and to generate change. It's impossible to know for certain what the future holds, but we can remove some of its surprises by engaging in a meaningful debate about the choices we face now. This book shows us how.

43. Turning to One Another (Large Print 16pt) - Margaret J. Wheatley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

By the author of Leadership and the New Science (over 250,000 copies sold); Shows how the simple but long neglected act of conversation-of thoughtfully talking and listening to one another-has the power to change lives; Offers insightful advice on how to conduct conversations that will help us to genuinely connect with each other and restore hope to our individual lives; Provides ten ''conversation starters'' to provoke rich and meaningful exchange ''I believe we can change the world if we start talking to one another again.'' With this simple declaration, Margaret Wheatley proposes that people band together with their colleagues and friends to create the solutions for real social change, both locally and globally, that are so badly needed. Such change will not come from governments or corporations, she argues, but from the ageless process of thinking together in conversation. Turning to One Another encourages this process. Part I explores the power of conversation and the conditions-simplicity, personal courage, real listening, and diversity-that support it. Part II contains quotes and images to encourage the reader to pause and reflect, and to prepare for the work ahead-convening truly meaningful conversations. Part III provides ten ''conversation starters''-questions that in Wheatley's experience have led people to share their deepest beliefs, fears, and hopes.

44. The New Entrepreneurial Leader Developing Leaders Who Create Social, Environmental, and Economic Value in an Unknowable World (Large Print 16pt) - H. James Wilson, Danna Greenberg, Kate McKone-Sweet

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £36.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In years past, the keywords for leaders were confidence, single - minded purpose, and strategic planning. But today's vastly complex, globalized, and fast - evolving world requires a different kind of leadership. This game - changing book details a new approach - entrepreneurial leadership - developed at Babson College, the number - one school for entrepreneurship in the world. Entrepreneurial leadership is inspired by, but is separate from, entrepreneurship. It is a leadership approach that can be applied in any organizational situation, not just start - ups. Based on two years of extensive research, it embraces three principles that add up to nothing less than a fundamentally new worldview of business and a new logic of decision making. The authors discovered that rapid change and increasing uncertainty require leaders to be ''cognitively ambidextrous,'' able to shift between traditional ''prediction logic'' (choosing actions based on analysis of known trends) and ''creation logic'' (taking action despite considerable unknowns). Guiding this different way of thinking and acting is a different worldview of business and society, where simultaneous creation of social, environmental, and economic value is the order of the day. Entrepreneurial leaders also leverage their understanding of themselves and their social context to guide effective action. Danna Greenberg, Kate McKone - Sweet, and H. James Wilson, along with some of the top faculty at Babson, examine the three facets of this new model in detail. Each chapter offers concrete examples of how educators across all disciplines are integrating these ideas into their courses - and even their entire curricula. The New Entrepreneurial Leader lays out a comprehensive new paradigm for reinventing management education in order to mold leaders who will shape social and economic opportunity.

45. Appreciative Inquiry A Positive Revolution in Change (Large Print 16pt) - Diana Whitney, David Cooperrider

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £20.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Written by the originators and leaders of the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) movement itself, this short, practical guide offers an approach to organizational change based on the possibility of a more desirable future, experience with the whole system, and activities that signal ''something different is happening this time.'' That difference systematically taps the potential of human beings to make themselves, their organizations, and their communities more adaptive and more effective. AI, a theory of collaborative change, erases the winner/loser paradigm in favor of coordinated actions and closer relationships that lead to solutions at once simpler and more effective.

47. Real Leadership Helping People and Organizations Face Their Toughest Challenges (Large Print 16pt) - Dean Williams

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £31.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In Real Leadership, Dean Williams argues that the true task of the leader is to get people to face the reality of any situation themselves and develop strategies to deal with problems or take advantage of opportunities. Leaders who are responsible with their power and authority don't dictate; they help people determine what shifts in their values, habits, practices and priorities will be needed to accommodate changing conditions and new demands.

50. Faith That Prevails - Smith Wigglesworth

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £6.49  - Click book title for availability and further details

FAITH is the key to a life of fulfillment through God. Fleeting or wavering faith causes life to be inconsistent and frustrating. In Faith That Prevails Smith Wigglesworth leads you on a path that will build your faith and prepare you for everyday trials. "I believe that there is only one way to all the treasures of God, and that is the way of faith. By faith and faith alone do we enter into a knowledge of the attributes and become partakers of the beatitudes, and participate in the glories of our ascended Lord. All His promises are Yea and Amen to them that believe." Smith Wigglesworth was a British evangelist instrumental in the early history of Pentecostalism. Wigglesworth believed that healing came through faith and practiced anointing with oil. Wigglesworth said he had made a commitment to God that he would not sleep at night before he had won a soul for Christ every day. He claimed that on one occasion he could not sleep because he had not met this commitment, and that he went out into the night and met an alcoholic to whom he spoke and persuaded to become a believer.

51. Towards a Grammar of Being (Large Print 16pt) - Julie Waugh

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In the tradition of Dickinson s letter to the world, Julie Waugh has dedicated herself to the poet s scrupulous custom of reflection and self-examination. The result is this poetic self-portrait. What towards a grammar of being delivers, in its high intelligence and tender sensuality, and in its inventive stream-of-verse episodes, is, quite simply, psychology, or what we used to call intuition. This is poetry for poetry lovers who remember when poetry had something to tell us about ourselves and about living the good life, and when reading poetry meant enjoying a poetic experience.

52. Two Wings of a Nightingale Persian Soul, Islamic Heart (Large Print 16pt) - Jill Worrall

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Iran is probably the most misunderstood country in the world, and its people are among the most feared. In this book award-winning travel writer Jill Worrall, with her friend Reza Mirkhalaf, a leading tour manager from Tehran, describe an Iran the world has forgotten about. Few people in the west know anything about the Iranian people beyond their current politics and religion. Two Wings of a Nightingale uses the threads of Iran's silk road heritage as a basis for a road trip travelogue. Many of the places visited have rarely been written about by westerners, and in writing this book Jill benefited from Reza's expert knowledge on Iran's history, religion, culture and architecture. During their journey, Jill and Reza explore the caravanserai that were once a vital part of the silk routes that once crossed Persia, while also encountering many ordinary Iranians. In writing this book, Jill wanted to write about Iran in a way that would give readers a greater insight into the landscapes, landmarks and people of the country at a grassroots level. The title reflects the fact that they were two people of different sexes, different religions and cultures travelling together, yet keeping their travels harmoniously on course. It also refers to the many dichotomies of Iranian life. In the course of their travels, Jill and Reza visit the holiest city in Iran, Mashhad, paddle in the Persian Gulf, pass close by the borders of both Afghanistan and Iraq, stay with local families, play in the snow near Mt Ararat, pray in mosques, read poetry in Shiraz and eat ice creams in Isfahan.

57. Self-Taught African American Education in Slavery and Freedom (Large Print 16pt) - Heather Andrea Williams

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £38.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

With great skill, Heather Williams demonstrates the centrality of black people to the process of formal education - the establish-ment of schools, the creation of a cadre of teachers, the forging of standards of literacy and numeracy - in the post-emancipation years. As she does, Williams makes the case that the issue of education informed the Reconstruction period - the two-cornered struggle between North and South over the rebuilding of Southern society, the three-cornered struggle between white Northerners, white Southerners, and black people over the nature of education, and the less well known contest between black Northerners and black Southerners over the direction of African American culture. Self-Taught is a work of major significance.'' IRA BERLIN University of Maryland..... ''Self-Taught is not merely the most comprehensive documentation and analysis of African American education in the South during the 18611871 period, it is in every respect the first definitive study of the formative stages of universal literacy and formal education among ex-slaves. Never before has anyone described so fully the broad range of roles and the significant contributions of African Americans to the development of formal and public education in the South for themselves and for the entire region.''

59. Hollywood Hills A Novel - Joseph Wambaugh

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £27.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

The legendary Hollywood Hills are home to wealth, fame, and power—passing through the neighborhood, it's hard not to get a little greedy.
LAPD veteran "Hollywood Nate" Weiss could take or leave the opulence, but he wouldn't say no to onscreen fame. He may get his shot when he catches the appreciative eye of B-list director Rudy Ressler, and his troublemaking fiancee, Leona Brueger, the older-but-still-foxy widow of a processed-meat tycoon. Nate tries to elude her crafty seductions, but consents to keep an eye on their estate in the Hollywood Hills while they're away.
Also minding the mansion is Raleigh Dibble, a hapless ex-con trying to put the past behind him. Raleigh is all too happy to be set up for the job—as butler-cum-watchdog—by Nigel Wickland, Leona's impeccably dressed art dealer. What Raleigh doesn't realize is that under the natty clothes and posh accent, Nigel has a nefarious plan: two paintings hanging on the mansion's walls will guarantee them more money than they've ever seen.
Everyone's dreams are just within reach—the only problem is, this is Hollywood. A circle of teenage burglars that the media has dubbed The Bling Ring has taken to pillaging the homes of Hollywood celebutants like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, and when a pair of drug-addled young copycats stumbles upon Nigel's heist, that's just the beginning of the disaster to come. Soon Hollywood Nate, surfer cops Flotsam and Jetsam, and the rest of the team at Hollywood Station have a deadly situation on their hands.
Hollywood Hills is a raucous and dangerous roller coaster ride that showcases Joseph Wambaugh in vintage form.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
DEALING WITH CHINA takes the reader behind closed doors to witness the creation and evolution and future of China's state-controlled capitalism.

Hank Paulson has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. He negotiated with China on needed economic reforms, while safeguarding the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades.

In DEALING WITH CHINA, Paulson draws on his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to answer several key questions:

  • How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?
  • How does business really get done there?
  • What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to work with, compete with, and benefit from China?
  • How can the U.S. negotiate with and influence China given its authoritarian rule, its massive environmental concerns, and its huge population's unrelenting demands for economic growth and security?

Written in the same anecdote-rich, page-turning style as Paulson's bestselling memoir, On the Brink, DEALING WITH CHINA is certain to become the classic and definitive examination of how to engage China's leaders as they build their economic superpower.
