"""Much progress results when different streams of human understanding are brought together. This book is about such an epiphany - that the traditionally left-brain working of industry can be greatly enriched by the creative potential of mind-maps. Our process-oriented industries need more creativity... so it is definitely worth investing some time to evaluate this book and its thesis for yourself!"" -Manas Fuloria, Co-founder and CEO, Nagarro “Project management is typically associated with linear thinking with a beginning, a middle and an end. Mind Maps are associated with Creativity and non-linear thinking. When an expert in both areas - PMP, Scrum Master and a Thinkbuzan tutor- brings this expertise together in one book, it tickles the left and right side of the brain simultaneously. Maneesh has written a compelling thesis and is a must read for CXOs and project managers alike, to get the most out of projects!” -Sameer Garde, President, South Asia, Philips India ""While solving complex problems we may have a difficulty in looking at all perspectives of the eventual solution. Mind Maps help in documenting our thoughts in a more structured way by aligning the creative thinking process with the analytical decision process. This expertise was so far not available in India and the initiative by Maneesh is a welcome and valuable contribution. This is especially useful for mid-level and senior people but can be used by all age groups."" -Tushar Bhatia, Founder & CEO, EmpXtrack “Just as the LEAN movement transformed the Manufacturing industry, Mind Maps can do the same to the field of Project Management. A Mind Map helps cuts across the noise in multiple situations, brings into focus the core issue and ignites creativity through whole brain thinking. Through this book Maneesh has provided a framework and examples to apply Mind Mapping to the practice of Project Management - a bold move that will encourage creative thinking and problem solving. A must read for organizational heads and all project managers.” - Nitin Kulkarni, Founder & Principal Consultant, Elevo Consulting “The book is a Project management and Mind Maps toolkit coming from a practicing professional and trainer Maneesh Dutt. It is a guide map for decision makers to enable project professionals become more creative and innovative in managing projects. Projects, today, are more like a hundred meter sprint than a marathon and deserve nimble techniques like Mind Maps to execute better. The book picks up the threads from project management fundamentals along with inspiration from nature and provides a rich array of Mind Map templates allowing organizations to kick start their journey towards better project management. A real boon to organizations that are involved in any Project activity!” -Gaurang Joshipura, Managing Director, Zeppelin Systems India Pvt. Ltd."

African agriculture is currently at a crossroads, at which persistent food shortages are compounded by threats from climate change. But, as this book argues, Africa can feed itself in a generation and can help contribute to global food security. To achieve this Africa has to define agriculture as a force in economic growth by advancing scientific and technological research, investing in infrastructure, fostering higher technical training, and creating regional markets.

A sweeping cultural survey reminiscent of Barzun's From Dawn to Decadence. "At irregular times and in scattered settings, human beings have achieved great things. Human Accomplishment is about those great things, falling in the domains known as the arts and sciences, and the people who did them.' So begins Charles Murray's unique account of human excellence, from the age of Homer to our own time. Employing techniques that historians have developed over the last century but that have rarely been applied to books written for the general public, Murray compiles inventories of the people who have been essential to the stories of literature, music, art, philosophy, and the sciences—a total of 4,002 men and women from around the world, ranked according to their eminence. The heart of Human Accomplishment is a series of enthralling descriptive chapters: on the giants in the arts and what sets them apart from the merely great; on the differences between great achievement in the arts and in the sciences; on the meta-inventions, 14 crucial leaps in human capacity to create great art and science; and on the patterns and trajectories of accomplishment across time and geography. Straightforwardly and undogmatically, Charles Murray takes on some controversial questions. Why has accomplishment been so concentrated in Europe? Among men? Since 1400? He presents evidence that the rate of great accomplishment has been declining in the last century, asks what it means, and offers a rich framework for thinking about the conditions under which the human spirit has expressed itself most gloriously. Eye-opening and humbling, Human Accomplishment is a fascinating work that describes what humans at their best can achieve, provides tools for exploring its wellsprings, and celebrates the continuing common quest of humans everywhere to discover truths, create beauty, and apprehend the good.
