Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues, Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. You might even add a seventh: retail stores, which Jobs did not quite revolutionize, but he did re-imagine. Plus, he opened the way for a new market for digital content based on apps.

The Sense of an Ending is the story of one man coming to terms with the mutable past. Laced with trademark precision, dexterity and insight, it is the work of one of the world’s most distinguished writers.A brilliant short novel from a writer at the very height of his powers.

The plethora of rib-tickling, satirical,quirky,and reflective images that Mario De Miranda has produced over the last 56 years since he first began freelancing for The Current in Mumbai has been painstakingly compiled by Gerard da Cunha and Bevinda Collaco who pored over 8,000 drawings and related compositions and then distilled them into this volume.
Arranged into 45 sections that are a visual feast, interspersed with essays written by Mario aficionados, the volume walks the reader through the artist’s life and his evolution as one of India’s best known social chroniclers.

In Romancing with Life, Dev Anand tells his remarkable life story no less dramatic and gripping than any of his films as only he could. Here are tales from Dev’s youth in 1930s Gurdaspur and Lahore; his years of struggle in 1940s Bombay; his doomed romance with Suraiya; his marriage to co-star Kalpana Kartik; and his relationships with his many luminous heroines.
