REVIEWS

While Lindkvist’s ideas are anything but small, this blurb can be tiny: This Is Great.

Ben Hammersley, RSA Fellow,Wired journalist, Internet Visionary and author of Approaching the Future: 64 Things You Need to Know Now for Then

Magnus Lindkvist is not only a world-class trendspotter and a futurologist with uncommonly deep insights into the shape of things to come, he is also a highly original thinker. In thisMinifestohe has condensed a remarkable amount of challenging and contrarian thinking into a rousing defense of small, but not insignificant, ideas. Itis a refreshing attack on pompous futures thinking and overly broad claims regarding the future, and champions humility and creativity in the face of the profoundly unknowable. An important book for all those who care about the world tomorrow.

Professor Alf Rehn, innovation thought-leader, listed on the 2016 Thinkers50 Radar as one of the 30 management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led

Read My Lips

What if you could get people to listen to you in every situation? And in addition, get them to want to listen? Would that make life easier? Rhetoric is not the art of speaking - it is the art of getting others to listen. This book does not deal with the history of rhetoric - nor is it a book that teaches you how to 'talk nicely' - as many people might think when they hear the word 'rhetoric'. This book will teach you to speak effectively and increase the motivation of your listeners. Teaching you how to be professional and personal, without being private. Elaine shares her own experiences, and suggests with humour and warmth how to tackle difficult situations. Selling 60,000 copies in Sweden, this revised edition boasts completely new examples and rhetorical tricks.

Iconic

This book is about icons – exceptional organizations (orchestras, restaurants, sports teams or companies) with an aspiration to make or do something special, and to go on doing so, year in, year out for decades. This is what gives these organizations their undeniably iconic status.
By selecting 14 iconic organizations (including ElBulli, McKinsey, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Procter & Gamble, the All Blacks) and researching what characteristics make them different from others, the authors discovered a “competency spiral” which these organizations exhibit in their success. Attracting and retaining the right people; forging individuals into a team; and achieving outstanding results, time after time, through continuous improvement and adjustment – these are the key competencies required to achieve iconic status.

The Rise of Bacardi

In 1862, in the city of Santiago de Cuba, a family-owned business purchased a distillery, producing the first bottle of what would become known as BACARDÍ rum. In the years that followed, Bacardi expanded to become a globally recognized household name, renowned for its premium quality white rum. The Rise of Bacardi tells the story of the Bacardi company, from its origins in the mid-19th century to its expansion in the early 20th to its international acclaim as the world's leading manufacturer of spirits today. This is the story of a company, but it is also the story of a family who has faced political and societal upheaval, from the Spanish American War to American Prohibition and the Cuban Revolution, and has continued to go from strength to strength over the last 150 years. As a member of the Bacardí family and former employee of the company, Jorge Del Rosal provides a unique insider's point of view in parallel to his own story as the company expanded in the latter half of the 20th century to today.

Upgraded

The realm of the “personal” is now increasingly touched by technology – especially the Internet. For example, sleep is now something we do in between checking our smartphones. Our relationship to food and eating has changed too. Home delivery, restaurant search, table bookings – these have all been elevated to a high level skill-set which is part-entertainment, part-electronic processing. And travel is now a finger-clicking exercise with precision timing.
This readjustment of our daily routine has had one significant effect: it has taught individuals a range of skills that would normally be in the domain of businesses.  Ordinary people now behave as businesses do by using buying strategies to get costs down. We now have expectations of quality and delivery. In fact, we have become so business-like as individuals that marketers need to get rid of the processes of “Business-to-Consumer” communication, and begin to adopt the rules of “Business-to-Business” when talking to consumers. Such change of our lives is an explosion of the new – new thinking, new business, new relationships, new selling, new buying, new leisure, new humans.

The Prisoner and the Penguin

The power of a good story has long been recognised. It seems that, as a race, we humans love a good story. But stories aren’t just for pure enjoyment - they have long been a powerful tool for teaching. This book is an alternative to traditional marketing handbook. Rather than a textbook, it is an enjoyable “story-book” that brings to life some of the key principles of marketing in an easy-to-read, accessible form. Some of these stories are quite remarkable and almost unbelievable; but all are true and remind marketers and businesspeople that the best marketing is something which people tell others about and retell over many years.
