The Winning Way - Learnings from Sport for Managers
by Harsha Bhogle
What do sporting champions do, what makes winning teams, who is a good leader, why do only some teams keep winning while others win only for a while and then lose? Two IIMA alumni, Sports commentator and writer Harsha Bhogle and advertising and communication consultant Anita Bhogle dig into examples from sport to see how they can benefit managers.Contrary to popular perception ability is not a major distinguishing factor in success, especially as the level of competition increases. But if you combine your ability with the right attitude and the passion to excel, you too can become the best that you can be. That is the universal formula for winning that The Winning Way explores.

For Anita and Harsha Bhogle, this book marks the completion of 300 successful corporate workshops of The Winning Way that they run.

A Case Of Exploding Mangoes
by Mohammed Hanif
There is an ancient saying that when lovers fall out, a plane goes down. A Case of Exploding Mangoes is the story of one such plane. Why did a Hercules C130, the world's sturdiest plane, carrying Pakistan's military dictator General Zia ul Haq, go down on 17 August, 1988- Was it because of:

1.Mechanical failure 2.Human error 3.The CIA's impatience 4.A blind woman's curse 5.Generals not happy with their pension plans 6.The mango season

Or could it be your narrator, Ali Shigri

Here are the facts:
A military dictator reads the Quran every morning as if it was his daily horoscope.
Under Officer Ali Shigri carries a deadly message on the tip of his sword.
His friend Obaid answers all life's questions with a splash of eau de cologne and a quote from Rilke.
A crow has crossed the Pakistani border illegally.
As young Shigri moves from a mosque hall to his military barracks before ending up in a Mughal dungeon, there are questions that haunt him: What does it mean to betray someone and still love them. How many names does Allah really have. Who killed his father, Colonel Shigri. Who will kill his killers. And where the hell has Obaid disappeared to.

Teasing, provocative, and very funny, Mohammed Hanif's debut novel takes one of the subcontinent's enduring mysteries and out if it spins a tale as rich and colourful as a beggar's dream.
