    With a big new idea that will transform how people think about innovation and disruption in the same way that Blue Ocean Strategy changed how the world thinks about strategy and competition, Kim and Mauborgne argue that disruption is not the only, or even the best, way to grow your company. Leaders miss bigger market-creating opportunities when they focus solely on disruption—and, through disruption, they destroy people's careers and livelihoods as markets and companies tumble. As customers, employees, and investors increasingly demand that companies be more accountable to all stakeholders, Kim and Mauborgne give leaders a new perspective and tools to transform their approach to innovation: away from market-destroying to market-creating innovations that achieve profitable growth and greater good for all.Introduces a new approach to innovation that is tailor-made for a world, and economy, in transition: Nondisruptive creation is positioned to play an increasingly important role in companies and our economy as smart machines and AI become more ubiquitous. It allows organizations to pursue their individual growth without imposing social adjustment costs on our communities. All the jobs it creates are additive, not net. In this way, nondisruptive creation is an affirmative step to make sure that everybody comes along as our economies transition.Practical, relevant, and applies broadly: A surprising, counter-intuitive, yet amazingly commonsensical approach to innovation, so much so that you wonder how the world has largely missed this observation and understanding. It also offers a pathway to innovation that is as inspiring as it is practical not only for companies but for governments and public policy as well. Whether a company offers a product or service, whether it is designed for consumers (B2C) or for companies (B2B), or for non-profits, the principles and practices in this book apply.Covers the What, Why, and How: Starting with compelling examples of nondisruptive creation – and the idea that nondisruptive creation is not meant to detract from or displace the existing theory or practice of disruption, but rather to complement it by opening up the other half of innovation opportunities available to all of us—the book focuses on the How: How do you unlock and execute nondisruptive creation and build a mindset for success of nondisruptive creation, and which areas are ripe for nondisruptive creation now and in the future.Unveils New Analytical Tools: Just as Blue Ocean Strategy gave leaders new analytical tools for strategy and for finding blue oceans, this book gives them a new set of analytic tools to see and act on nondisruptive opportunities and scale them in the market.Lively, Instructive Examples: Fascinating case studies drawn from the authors' research data base will be woven throughout to bring the points to life, highlighting what works and why and how anyone can take these insights and start to apply it for themselves. They include Truepic, Pfizer, Kickstarter, Sesame Street, and companies in industries such as online dating, life coaching, air-to-ground communication, men's cosmeceuticals, and even pet Halloween costumes.Audience: Leaders and aspiring leaders; anyone responsible for growing an organization or for innovation.Professionals at all levels across the for-profit, non-profit, and government sectors.Entrepreneurs.Students, including the MBA and Exec Ed market, and degrees in social policy, technology and engineering.Broader audience of those interested in the future of business.

    A ¿wholly unique¿ and ¿uncompromising¿ literary horror debut about a boy who transforms into a monster, a monster who tries to be a man, and the people who love him in every form he takes (Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke and Other Misfortunes)Grieving mother Magos cuts out a piece of her deceased eleven-year-old son Santiagös lung. Acting on fierce maternal instinct and the dubious logic of an old folktale, she nurtures the lung until it gains sentience, growing into the carnivorous little Monstrilio she keeps hidden within the walls of her family¿s decaying Mexico City estate. Eventually, Monstrilio begins to resemble the Santiago he once was, but his innate impulses¿though curbed by his biological and chosen family¿s communal care¿threaten to destroy this fragile second chance at life. A thought-provoking meditation on grief, acceptance, and the monstrous sides of love and loyalty, Gerardo Sámano Córdova blends bold imagination and evocative prose with deep emotional rigor. Told in four acts that span the globe from Brooklyn to Berlin, Monstrilio offers, with uncanny clarity, a cathartic and precise portrait of being human.

    ¿Sumptuous . . . Nothing in this story disappoints.¿ ¿Publishers WeeklyAs seen on Netflix, The Empress is a captivating, vivid, and remarkably modern tale about falling in love and finding one¿s voice.The year is 1853, and Princess Elisabeth ¿Sisi¿ of Bavaria has been very clear: She will wait for the head-over-heels love the poets speak of, or she will have no love at all. Just because her older sister, Helene, is eagerly heeding their mother¿s advice and preparing to marry Emperor Franz of Austria does not mean Sisi must also subject herself to such a dutiful existence. Sisi knows there is more to life than luncheons¿and corsets¿if only someone would let her experience it all firsthand. Meanwhile, in Austria, the emperor is recovering from an assassination attempt that left him wounded and scared. In a bid to keep the peace, Franz has recommitted himself to his imperial duties¿and promised to romance the pliant Helene of Bavaria at his upcoming birthday celebration. How better to unite the empire than with the announcement of a new empress? But when Sisi and Franz meet unexpectedly in the palace gardens, away from the prying eyes¿and relentless critique of the court, their connection cannot be denied. And as their illicit conversations turn into something more, they must soon choose between the expectations of their families and standing up for what they truly believe in . . .

Stories told through the lens of five principles—be in service of others; build belief; know what must change and what must endure; steward good tech; be resilient—reveal tools that anyone can apply to achieve real change at any stage of their life and work.Rometty also encourages us to use good power at scale to bring about urgent societal change. She shares insights from her own journey to create a more equitable world by leading the SkillsFirst movement, which connects underserved populations with family-sustaining jobs by transforming hiring, education, and training.With heart, humility, and conviction, Good Power offers an inspiring, compelling guide to creating meaningful change in our lives.

Her work has appeared in the Brooklyn Rail, Triple Canopy, AzonaL, Comparative Drama, and Tether’s End.Intriguing and original, edgy, atmospheric and darkly humorous Lucia Rico: "I started writing this book as a fairy tale, the same way marketing makes fairy tales, until we believe the animals we eat are adorable, wholesome, devoted beasts, with whom we have a relationship.”A city girl inherits the family’s poultry farm when her mother dies. But when it comes to killing the chickens, she attempts to give their lives meaning by composing short biographies for each of them, therefore humanizing the meat about to be eaten. There is Theodore, “a free, independent and mischievous character,” and Léna, “the most beautiful kid, with her beautiful, well-screwed crest that ends in lace.” There’s Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation, but never has there been a humorous take on the topic of industrial animal processing. Fowl Eulogies is an absurd fairy tale for the Ethical Carnivore. Fiction of perfect madness, of brutal and unprecedented humor … From the meadow to the supermarket, this modern tale, a dazzling first novel of mischief and feathers, brings to life the singular poetry of the industrial chicken.Originally published in France.

    “Reeling from a breakup, a young Danish woman recovers her sense of self through conversations with parents, friends, and strangers. A sweet and quirky debut about heartbreak, memory, and the endless potential of language.” ―Kirkus ReviewsThe narrator’s long-term girlfriend has just broken things off, forcing her to move back in with her father, a Pink Floyd–loving priest. While she desperately tries to convince her girlfriend to reconsider, the rest of the world bombards her with advice: from her childhood friend Mulle to her kindly therapist to her overbearing mother and card-playing father. Bumbling through the fog of disillusionment, the narrator gives herself permission to grieve, philosophize, and be generally outrageous until at last she sees a light at the end of the tunnel. My Mother Says is a compendium of conversations between people who talk past one another in a universe of misplaced good intentions. In this whirlwind of memories, confessions, temper tantrums, and declarations of love Pilgaard’s sheer affection for her characters turns the pain of a broken heart into a heartwarming comedy of errors.

    ·      The Applicant is inspired by Nazlı Koca’s own life -- she was born and raised on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, spent years of her young adulthood in Berlin, and now lives in the US. Nazlı brings a captivating new perspective to our often US-centric conversation around immigration.·      The Berlin setting of The Applicant is seedy, lively, cutting-edge, and irresistible.·      A literary and commercial deeply affecting debut at the cutting edge of conversations around domestic work, immigration, and familial trauma, Koca’s debut deftly walks the line between entertaining and enraging.·      Nazlı Koca joins Elif Batuman, Ottessa Moshfegh, Melissa Broder and Mona Awad as a contemporary young writer of dry humor and razor-sharp prose that lays bare what it is to be a young woman making art under late-stage capitalism. ·      Nazlı Koca has been compared to Sally Rooney by Elif Batuman for her startlingly intimate portraits of young people who are critical of capitalism. PEN/Faulkner Award winner Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi, whom Nazlı just interviewed in Bookforum, calls the book “an unforgettable meditation on sex, censorship, displacement, and loss.”·      In Leyla, Nazlı Koca gives us a narrator as unforgettable as the heroines of Sayaka Murata’s Convenience Store Woman, Ottessa Moshfegh’s My Year of Rest and Relaxation, Pola Oloixarac’s Mona, and Sang Young Park’s Love in the Big City. ·      The Applicant is a dynamic examination of privilege and power, as Leyla plummets from her favored, protected status as a graduate student to a migrant worker scrubbing toilets, a shift which deeply impacts her experience of Berlin.·      Like Teju Cole’s celebrated debut Open City, Elif Shafak’s The Island of Missing Trees, and Ayşegül Savaş’ Walking on the Ceiling, The Applicant is an addictive meditation on immigrant identity and dislocation. ·      We’ve received a great deal of foreign interest in The Applicant.

    With “a voice as clear, sincere, and wry as any I’ve read in current American fiction” (Joshua Cohen), Martin Riker’s poignant and startlingly original novel asks how to foster a brave mind in anxious times, following a newly jobless academic rehearsing a speech on John Maynard Keynes for a surprising audienceIn a hotel room in the middle of the night, Abby, a young feminist economist, lies awake next to her sleeping husband and daughter. Anxious that she is grossly underprepared for a talk she is presenting tomorrow on optimism and John Maynard Keynes, she has resolved to practice by using an ancient rhetorical method of assigning parts of her speech to different rooms in her house and has brought along a comforting albeit imaginary companion to keep her on track—Keynes himself.Yet as she wanders with increasing alarm through the rooms of her own consciousness, Abby finds herself straying from her prepared remarks on economic history, utopia, and Keynes’s pragmatic optimism. A lapsed optimist herself, she has been struggling under the burden of supporting a family in an increasingly hostile America after being denied tenure at the university where she teaches. Confronting her own future at a time of global darkness, Abby undertakes a quest through her memories to ideas hidden in the corners of her mind—a piecemeal intellectual history from Cicero to Lewis Carroll to Queen Latifah—as she asks what a better world would look like if we told our stories with more honest and more hopeful imaginations.With warm intellect, playful curiosity, and an infectious voice, Martin Riker acutely animates the novel of ideas with a beating heart and turns one woman’s midnight crisis into the performance of a lifetime.
