AMERICAN SNIPER By CHRIS KYLE He is the deadliest American sniper ever, called "the devil" by the enemies he hunted and "the legend" by his Navy SEAL brothers . . . From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyle's kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared him so much they placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow U.S. warriors, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle's masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

STOLEN By LOUISE MONAGHAN In the middle of one of the worst civil wars in Syria's history, Louise Monaghan crossed a heavily guarded border to save her six-year-old daughter from the father who had callously snatched her from her home in Cyprus. Not knowing what lay ahead, the Irish mother tricked her ex-husband into believing she still loved him and wanted them to live together as a family, purely so that she could see her kidnapped child again. Once in his homeland, Louise too was held captive, locked inside a run-down house day and night with little food and no hope of being released. Sick from polluted water, severely beaten by her ex-husband and abandoned by the Turkish men paid to rescue her, she took her little girl and made a daring escape. The journey they made through bomb attacks and sniper fire and across a heavily patrolled mountain range in the dead of night, led by illegal people-smugglers, was a harrowing ordeal. Yet miraculously they both survived, and "Stolen" is Louise's breathtaking account of events. 9781780575919 TRANSWORLD S$18.00 MPH Distributors (S) Pte Ltd


TALES FROM THE SPECIAL FORCES CLUB

By SEAN RAYMENT

A unique and poignant record of a club created for heroes. There are just a handful of men and women alive today who served and fought with the Special Forces during the Second World War. They are a dwindling bunch of veterans in their twilight years whose tales of heroism and daring-do will soon be lost in time forever - yet they still regularly get together in a gentleman's club, right in the heart of London - The Special Forces Club. In ten separate and astonishing accounts of ingenuity and heroism, the Sunday Telegraph defence correspondent Sean Rayment visits this unique group of people, and through their vivid memories, transports the reader back in time to the dark days of the Second World War when Britain was again fighting on multiple fronts across the globe. 9780007498758 HARPER UK S$30.00

Kishore Mahbubani is optimistic. We are creating a new global civilization. Eighty-eight percent of the world's population outside the West is rising to Western living standards, and sharing Western aspirations. Yet Mahbubani, one of the most perceptive global commentators, also warns that a new global order needs new policies and attitudes.Policymakers all over the world must change their preconceptions and accept that we live in one world. National interests must be balanced with global interests. Power must be shared. The U.S. and Europe must cede some power. China and India, Africa and the Islamic world must be integrated. Mahbubani urges that only through these actions can we create a world that converges benignly.

A DEATH IN THE LUCKY HOLIDAY HOTEL By PIN HO AND WENGUANG HUANG The scandalous story of the corruption of the Bo Xilai family—the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood; Bo’s secret lovers, who may have included Chinese film stars; the blackmailing by Bo’s supporters; the hasty trial and sentencing of Gu Kailai, Bo’s wife—is only the tip of an iceberg and just the beginning of a cataclysmic power struggle that could rock the very foundation of China’s all-powerful Communist Party. By the time it is over, the machinations in Beijing and throughout the country that began with Bo’s fall could affect China’s economic development and disrupt the world’s political and economic order. This is the first book for non-Chinese readers on the scandal’s full significance, and comes right at the moment of a transformational powershift in the country.

HBR: INNOVATION AS USUAL By PADDY MILLER How do you get people to be more innovative "every day"? You need to build it into your organization's DNA. Otherwise, your team will view innovation as a side project--and your efforts will fail. Innovation experts Paddy Miller and Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg say the way most leaders 'lead innovation' is to organize one-off brainstorm meetings, idea jams, and off-sites. Instead, what you need to do is change the way people work. "Innovation as Usual" has six recommendations for you on how to support and manage daily work so that everyone understands the overarching goal of being more innovative, all of the time.

HBR: GLOBAL DEXTERITY By ANDY MOLINSKY What does it mean to be a global worker or 'citizen of the world' today? It goes beyond mere acknowledgment of cultural differences. In truth, it often takes the actual adaptation of your behavior to fit into new cultural contexts-something frightening for most people, and completely out of their comfort zone. But managing and communicating with people from other cultures is an essential skill today. Most people are working on a regular basis with international colleagues, or are part of a diverse team where members have different backgrounds and styles. What's needed is a new skill: "global dexterity." In "Global Dexterity: How to Adapt Your Behavior Across Cultures without Losing Yourself in the Process," Andy Molinsky gives you the tools needed to adapt your behavior to new cultural contexts--what he calls "cultural codeswitching."

HBR: PLAYING TO WIN By A.G LAFLEY The only strategy book you'll ever need If strategy is about creating a competitive advantage that allows a firm to win, then pinpointing your strategy to a few critically important choices will dramatically increase your chances of success. This is especially true in the volatile and complex environment that has become the norm for all of us. Yet the authors of Playing to Win, A. G. Lafley, the former CEO of Procter & Gamble and one of the most successful business leaders of the last century, and Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management, say most firms shy away from these difficult strategic choices, settling instead for false approaches that can lead to irreversible blunders. Drawn on their years of experience working together and separately at P&G and the Rotman School of Management, Lafley and Martin present a deceptively simple set of exercises and questions that can guide the decisions of anyone in an organization. 9781422187395 PGW S$44.55
