These two iconic books, Blue Ocean Strategy and Beyond Disruption, together changed how the world thinks about strategy and innovation. Blue Ocean Strategy, the #1 global bestseller, reframed strategy not as a game between rivals fighting over markets and customers but as a new approach to creating markets and attracting customers-in untapped new market spaces free of competition. Just as Blue Ocean Strategy redefines the essence of strategy, Beyond Disruption redefines and expands the existing view of innovation by introducing a new approach, nondisruptive creation, that is free from the destructive displacement of jobs, people, companies, and industries that happens when companies set out to disrupt. Taken together, these bestselling books will help you chart a bold new path to winning the future.

Author: Brad Fox
Narrator: Lee Osorio

A wide-ranging, philosophical, and sensual account of early deep-sea exploration and its afterlives, The Bathysphere Book begins with the first ever voyage to the deep ocean in 1930 and expands to explore the adventures and entanglements of its all-too-human participants at a time when the world still felt entirely new. In the summer of 1930, aboard a ship floating near the Atlantic island of Nonsuch, marine biologist Gloria Hollister sat on a crate, writing furiously in a notebook with a telephone receiver pressed to her ear. The phone line was attached to a steel cable that plunged 3,000 feet into the sea. There, suspended by the cable, dangled a four-and-a-half-foot steel ball called the bathysphere. Crumpled inside, gazing through three-inch quartz windows at the undersea world, was Hollister’s colleague William Beebe. He called up to her, describing previously unseen creatures, explosions of bioluminescence, and strange effects of light and color.

Mourning and Resilience in Indian Ocean Life Writing (EPUB)


Free Download Esther Pujolràs-Noguer, "Mourning and Resilience in Indian Ocean Life Writing "
English | ISBN: 3031463447 | 2024 | 216 pages | EPUB | 7 MB
This volume examines a selection of life writing in English by authors from the South West Indian Ocean, namely South Africa, East Africa, Mauritius and Sri Lanka. The two motifs that run through the chapters – mourning and resilience – are theoretical frameworks that have so far not been brought into conversation in this way. The combination of trauma studies and autobiographical analysis sharpens the focus of the discussions on Indian Ocean life writing, privileging an Indian Ocean imaginary that is transnational and cross-oceanic in its orientation and pointing to networks of connections that transcend the nation state, which is often the origin of trauma in the first place. Filling a gap in Indian Ocean studies in its close readings of trauma and resilience, the book also broadens perspectives on postcolonial life writing since little attention has been paid so far to Indian Ocean autobiographical literary products. By the same token, the volume also enriches the field of Indian Ocean literary studies by incorporating life writing as an aesthetic strategy which helps to configure Indian Ocean subjectivities.
