Limitless Mind: Learn, Lead and Live Without Barriers

Author : Jo Boaler

RP: RM79.90

Special Member Price: RM56.00

When we learn, we change what we believe and how we interact with the world. This changes who we are as people and what we can achieve.

Many people grow up being told they are ‘not a maths person’ or perhaps ‘not smart’. They come to believe their potential is limited.

Now, however, the latest science has revealed that our identities are constantly in flux; when we learn new things, we can change our identities, increase our potential and broaden our capacity to receive new information.

Drawing from the latest research, Professor Boaler followed thousands of school students, studied their learning practices and examined the most effective ways to transform pupils from low to high achievers. Throughout her study, Boaler has collaborated with Stanford University neuroscience experts, harnessing their expertise to reinforce her advanced understanding of learning and educational development.

In Limitless Mind, Boaler presents original ground-breaking research that proves that limiting beliefs really do hold us back from fulfilling our potential and that with a few careful life hacks we can transform our potential for good.

7 Secrets to Investing Like Warren Buffet

Author: Mary Buffet & Sean Seah

RP: RM69.90

Special Member Price: RM49.00

A complete guide for beginning investors who want to understand how to invest like Warren Buffett.

This is one of the first books to showcase both Warren Buffett’s Value Investing technique and his life skills and habits for beginning investors.

Sustainable results often come from changes in lifestyle and habits; hence, the first section of the book discusses habits that one needs to adopt to be able to invest like Warren Buffett, and prepares readers for a lifelong journey of wealth building.

The second section examines specific stock-picking techniques. The authors look at timeless principles as well as latest ideas on where to find great investment ideas, and share specific financial indicators they look for in a good investment.

The authors explain valuation principles and techniques that help investors decide when to buy a stock. The techniques are inspired by investor and economist, Benjamin Graham, the ‘father of value investing’, and are vastly different from the common Wall Street wisdom of trying to time the market. The final section of the book explains how the reader can build and track a portfolio of stocks.

Targeted: The Cambridge Analytica Whistle-blower’s Inside Story of How Big Data, Trump, and Facebook Broke Democracy and How It Can Happen Again

Author: Brittany Kaiser

RP: 79.90

Special Member Price: RM56.00

In this explosive memoir, a political consultant and technology whistle-blower reveals the disturbing truth about the multi-billion-dollar data industry, revealing to the public how companies are getting richer using our personal information and exposing how Cambridge Analytica exploited weaknesses in privacy laws to help elect Donald Trump–and how this could easily happen again in the 2020 presidential election.

When Brittany Kaiser joined Cambridge Analytica–the UK-based political consulting firm funded by conservative billionaire and Donald Trump patron Robert Mercer–she was an idealistic young professional working on her fourth degree in human rights law and international relations. A veteran of Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, Kaiser’s goal was to utilize data for humanitarian purposes, most notably to prevent genocide and human rights abuses. But her experience inside Cambridge Analytica opened her eyes to the tremendous risks that this unregulated industry poses to privacy and democracy.

Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Career

Author: Scott H. Young

RP: 79.90

Special Member Price: RM56.00

Now a Wall Street Journal Bestseller.

Learn a new talent, stay relevant, reinvent yourself, and adapt to whatever the workplace throws your way. Ultralearning offers nine principles to master hard skills quickly. This is the essential guide to future-proof your career and maximize your competitive advantage through self-education.

In these tumultuous times of economic and technological change, staying ahead depends on continual self-education—a lifelong mastery of fresh ideas, subjects, and skills. If you want to accomplish more and stand apart from everyone else, you need to become an ultra-learner.

The challenge of learning new skills is that you think you already know how best to learn, as you did as a student, so you rerun old routines and old ways of solving problems. To counter that, Ultralearning offers powerful strategies to break you out of those mental ruts and introduces new training methods to help you push through to higher levels of retention.
