WHAT VALUABLE COMPANY IS NOBODY BUILDING? The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them. It’s easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. Every new creation goes from 0 to 1. This book is about how to get there. ‘Peter Thiel has built multiple breakthrough companies, and Zero to One shows how.’ ELON MUSK, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla ‘This book delivers completely new and refreshing ideas on how to create value in the world.’ MARK ZUCKERBERG, CEO of Facebook ‘When a risk taker writes a book, read it. In the case of Peter Thiel, read it twice. Or, to be safe, three times. This is a classic.’ NASSIM NICHOLAS TALEB, author of The Black Swan

  • Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumaism: The Essential Elements of the Ideology for All African People, Those at Home and Those Abroad Paperback

    This work, “Kwame Nkrumah and Nkrumaism: The Essential Elements of the Ideology for All African People, Those at Home and Those Abroad”, examines the ideology for African people. An ideology organizes a people, unifies them, and guides them toward collective action in the common pursuit of an objective. The only objective that ensures the complete and permanent liberation of all African people, those at home and those abroad, is Pan-Africanism: a unified, socialist Africa controlled by African people. Nkrumaism is the ideology, the blueprint, that will guide African people and their descendants toward that objective. Nkrumaism takes its name from Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, not because of any hero worship and not because he was the first to articulate a theory of liberation for African people, but because he “synthesized and advanced” the African liberation theory espoused by his Pan-African predecessors. Most importantly, he dedicated himself to ensure that this ideology was put into practice and thus became, unlike anyone before or since him, the foremost practitioner of the ideology for the African Revolution. Based on the history, culture and current reality of African people worldwide, Nkrumaism is “like a light on a dark night showing the way to follow.” This work explores seven essential elements of Nkrumaism: identity, enemy, objective, philosophy, ideology, strategy and tactics. With our understanding of these elements, African people will forge the necessary ideological unity among a majority of our people at home and abroad in order to guarantee the successful building of Pan-Africanism. A Union of African Socialist States (UASS) is not only possible; it’s on the horizon! Forward ever, Backward never!

  • I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic Paperback – 5 September 2013 by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Author)

    I AM ZLATAN – the explosive, critically-acclaimed memoir of Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the world’s most gifted and controversial footballers

    ‘Why be a Fiat when you can be a Ferrari?’

    Welcome to planet Zlatan. This is the story of how a Swedish immigrant rose from poverty to become a football genius.

    In his own inimitable style, Zlatan recalls every struggle, every goal, and every training ground bust-up on his journey to dominate the world’s top clubs, including Barcelona, PSG and now Manchester United.

    Full of wicked one-liners and amazing stories, Zlatan lifts the lid on some of the biggest names in football, including Guardiola, Messi and his new manager, Jose Mourinho.

    Moving, funny and totally frank, I am Zlatan is unlike any autobiography you have ever read.

    ‘Wonderful – nothing less than a revelation. Ibrahimovic is the definitive modern sporting icon’ – Matthew Syed

    ‘The best sportsman’s memoir since Andre Agassi… not just a bad boy’s romp but the rise of a boy from the ghetto to the top of his profession and captain of his country. He is candid, funny and yes, wonderfully nuts’ – The Times

    ‘There’s never a dull moment on Planet Zlatan. This is a snarling, fizzing, unrepentant firecracker of a book; if footballers’ memoirs bore you, make an exception for this one’ – Independent

    Sir Alex Ferguson’s compelling story is always honest and revealing he reflects on his managerial career that embraced unprecedented European success for Aberdeen and 26 triumphant seasons with Manchester United.

    Sir Alex Ferguson’s best-selling autobiography has now been updated to offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour round the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised.

    Both the psychology of management and the detail of football strategy at the top level can be complex matters but no-one has explained them in a more interesting and accessible way for the general reader than Sir Alex does here.

    MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY is revealing, endlessly entertaining and above all inspirational.
