The visual mba- a quick guide to everything you’ll learn in two years of business school
Without investing thousands of dollars or giving up two years of your life, you can learn an entire MBA program. In The Visual MBA, author Jason Barron explains all key business school concepts with illustrations.
When the author began his MBA program, he made the decision to draw all of his notes so that others could benefit from them. It's a good thing he did, because studies reveal that over 65 percent of us are visual learners, with our brains processing images 60,000 times faster than text. The Visual MBA distills the most fundamental ideas of an MBA into an engaging, instructive, and easily digestible reference, covering everything from marketing, ethics, and accounting to organizational behavior, finance, operations, and strategy.
Grit the power of passion and perseverance
In this book, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth demonstrates to anyone wanting to succeed — be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people — that the secret to remarkable accomplishment is a unique mixture of passion and perseverance she calls "grit". Angela Duckworth discovered that grit is a better predictor of high accomplishment than IQ, talent, or other personality attributes after years of research. She's also discovered scientific proof that grit can be grown. Grit is a book about what goes through your thoughts when you fall down, and how that, not talent or luck, makes all the difference.
Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World — and Why Things Are Better Than You Think
When given simple questions regarding global trends, a majority of people consistently answer wrong. Important questions such as what proportion of the world's population actually lives in poverty, why the world's population is expanding, and how many girls complete high school. Teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and entrepreneurs will all be guessed by a chimp picking responses at random. Factfulness was written by Swedish physician, academic, and public speaker Hans Rosling, who wanted to help people question what they assumed to be facts.
"Factfulness" offers a radical new explanation of why this happens, outlining the ten instincts that distort our perspective ― from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).
