Sara Taheri, LID Publishing’s Editorial Director, piqued our curiosity about about next year’s titles:

Which titles are you most looking forward to?

I am excited about The Wanda Way, written by Wang Jainlin, Founder and Chairman of The Wanda Group and Enabling Genius, written by leading business coaching expert, Myles Downey 

What interests you about these books?

Wanda is one of the biggest companies in China and I believe this book will help make Wanda a household name in the west. The Wanda Way also offers insights into the tremendous drive and ambition required to build a major empire.  

Enabling Genius is a personal favorite of mine because it explains how you can express your own personal genius or talent. 

What else are you excited about for next year?

I am excited about expanding our Concise Advice series and holding a mixer to start promoting it.  We look forward to doing a wider range of topics in the new year. 

I am excited to develop our Concise Advice series as a brand, welcoming new titles such as The Financial Wellbeing Book and The Mindfulness Book. I am very much looking forward to our Concise Advice Lab Mixer on December 8th, as it will give us a chance to celebrate our existing concise advice titles and promote our Concise Advice series.
