“There is an enemy. There is an intelligent, active, malign force working against us. Step one is to recognize this. This recognition alone is enormously powerful. It saved my life, and it will save yours.” — Steven Pressfield

Winning in business today is not about being number one–it’s about who “gets to the future first,” write management consultants Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad. In Competing for the Future, they urge companies to create their own futures, envision new markets, and reinvent themselves.
Hamel and Prahalad caution that complacent managers who get too comfortable in doing things the way they’ve always done will see their companies fall behind. For instance, the authors consider the battle between IBM and Apple in the 1970s. Entrenched as the leading mainframe-computer maker, IBM failed to see the potential market for personal computers. That left the door wide open for Apple, which envisioned a computer for every man, woman, and child. The authors write, “At worst, laggards follow the path of greatest familiarity. Challengers, on the other hand, follow the path of greatest opportunity, wherever it leads.”

Most every woman has found herself with a closet full of too many clothes or surrounded by brand-new items that somehow never get worn. Instead she gets stuck wearing the same few familiar pieces from a wardrobe that just doesn’t feel “right.” Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner argues that all those things are actually manifestations of deeper life issues.
What if you could understand your appearance as a representation of your inner unresolved conflicts and then assemble a wardrobe to match the way you wish to be perceived? In this fashion guide that is like no other, Dr. Baumgartner helps readers identify the psychology behind their choices, so they can not only develop a personal style that suits their identity but also make positive changes in all areas of life.

How did IKEA become the world’s largest design brand, as popular as Lego, CocaCola and Nike? Privately held by one of the world’s richest men, the company is renowned for its secrecy. How did the company transform itself from one rural Swedish store to a global behemoth with a turnover of $30 billion and 700 million visitors a year?
In this candid analysis, former IKEA top director Johan Stenebo writes for the first time about the corporation’s ruthless rise to the top. Revealing IKEA’s daring and unique business model, he covers the leadership of IKEA’s founder Ingvar Kamprad, with whom he worked closely, and IKEA’s resourceful ways of brand management using companies like Greenpeace and WWF to cover environmental issues, as well as its challenging future without Kamprad.
