Startup Leadership: How Savvy

Page 5
How startup entrepreneurs can make the leap from
founder to long-term leader
Why do so many entrepreneurs found innovative
enterprises, only to find themselves failing as leaders
once the business gets off the ground? Because,
according to Derek Lidow, being an entrepreneur is
fundamentally different from being a business leader.
Lidow shows how to avoid the mistakes that confounded
thousands of "geniuses"—even Steve Jobs—and
become an Entrepreneurial Leader who combines the
opposing natures of the entrepreneur and the leader.
It is well recognised that succeeding at innovation is
fundamental in today's hyper-competitive global
marketplace. It is the only way to outperform current
and emerging competitors sustainably. But what we call
“innovation” is messy and difficult and too often lacks
the rigor and discipline of other management
processes. This book challenges changes that. It is a
practical guide that moves beyond the 'why' to the
'how' of making innovation happen, for leaders and
practitioners inside organisations of all sizes.

Many children and teens suffer from sensory
challenges, meaning that they have unusual reactions
to certain sensory experiences that most of us find
commonplace. These challenges can range from
moderate to severe—from an aversion to bright
lights or the feel of anything remotely abrasive, to
stopping short in panic every time a loud noise is heard
or having an oral tactile sensitivity that prevents
normal feeling in the mouth and hinders feeding.
Accompanying these sensory issues can be a range of
behavioral problems like OCD and anxiety, and more
severely, Asperger’s and autism.

John Randel Jr. (1787–1865) was an eccentric

This is far more than an exegesis of Dante’s

imaginative power, the linguistic skill and the
emotional intensity of Dante’s poetry—the qualities
that make the Commedia perhaps the greatest
literary work of all time and not simply a medieval
treatise on morality and religion.

Louis Armstrong, Master of Modernism
Are We All Scientific Experts Now?

The definitive account of Louis Armstrong—his life and
legacy—during the most creative period of his career.
Nearly 100 years after bursting onto Chicago’s
music scene under the tutelage of Joe "King"
Oliver, Louis Armstrong is recognized as one of
the most influential artists of the twentieth century.
A trumpet virtuoso, seductive crooner, and
consummate entertainer, Armstrong laid the
foundation for the future of jazz with his stylistic
innovations, but his story would be incomplete
without examining how he struggled in a society
seething with brutally racist ideologies, laws,
and practices.
To ordinary people, science used to seem infallible.
Scientists were heroes, selflessly pursuing knowledge for
the common good. More recently, a series of scientific
scandals, frauds and failures have led us to question
science’s pre-eminence. Revelations such as
Climategate, or debates about the safety of the MMR
vaccine, have dented our confidence in science.

Can War be Eliminated
Will China Dominate the 21st Century?
Christopher Coker
Jonathan Fenby
Throughout history, war seems to have had an iron grip
on humanity. In this short book, internationally
renowned philosopher of war, Christopher Coker,
challenges the view that war is an idea that we can cash
in for an even better one - peace. War, he argues, is
central to the human condition; it is part of the
evolutionary inheritance which has allowed us to survive
and thrive. New technologies and new geopolitical
battles may transform the face and purpose of war in
the 21st century, but our capacity for war remains
undiminished. The inconvenient truth is that we will not
see the end of war until it exhausts its own
evolutionary possibilities.
China’s spectacular growth has led to visions of the 21st
century being dominated by the last major state on
earth ruled by a Communist Party, its forward march
seemingly unstoppable when contrasted with the West
and Japan.
In this book, Jonathan Fenby, a leading expert on the
People’s Republic, makes plain that China, too, faces
major challenges which stand in the way of global
domination. It has to deal with political, economic, social
and international tests, each of which involves structural
difficulties that will put the system under strain. The
picture of China invoked by admirers to argue that it will
rule the world does not accord with reality.

Will the Middle East Implode?
Comparing Religions: Coming to Terms
Mohammed Ayoob
Jeffrey J. Kripal
The Middle East has long been fraught with tension and
volatility. However, the recent Arab uprisings have
intensified instability, turning this 'hot-spot' into a
veritable tinderbox whose potential for implosion has
far-reaching regional and global consequences.
In this short book, leading Middle East scholar
Mohammed Ayoob argues that the Arab Spring has
both changed and charged some of the region’s
thorniest problems - from the rise of political Islam to
Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the Israel-Palestine conflict to
rivalries between key regional powers.
Comparing Religions is a next-generation textbook written
by one of the field’s most eminent figures, which
expertly guides, inspires, and challenges those who wish
to think seriously about religious pluralism in the
modern world. The book draws on a wide range of religious
traditions to demonstrate the complexity and power
of comparative practices. In a three part structure,
the author provides readers with a map and effective
process through which to grasp this challenging
but fascinating approach.
