  5. Sun Tzu - The Art of War

    The masterpiece of the sage Sun Tzu is a military treatise written in China more than 2500 years ago. He recognized that we live in a world of conflict, which could not be ignored or denied but had to be mastered and understood. Sun Tzu's profound wisdom is not limited to military applications - his aphorisms offer important advice for dealing with other realms of human conflict, such as the pyschological tensions of everyday life and the difficulties of any joint endeavour, including business ventures. Arranged into 13 chapters from Estimates to the Employment of Secret Agents, and enhanced by beautiful calligraphy, The Art of War is more relevant now than ever.

  6. How Children Succeed - Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character

    11+, GCSEs, A-levels - it sometimes seems like the story of our children's lives is of one academic test after another. We're convinced that a good performance in these exams will lead to success later on in life. But what if we're wrong? In fact, studies are increasingly showing that the qualities most likely to ensure a better degree, a better job and, ultimately, a more fulfilling life are perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control. These are qualities known to economists as 'non-cognitive', to psychologists as 'personality traits' but to the rest of us as 'character'. "How Children Succeed" introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators who are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories - and the stories of the children they are trying to help - acclaimed journalist Paul Tough traces the links between childhood stress, childhood cosseting, and life success.
