How Beautiful We Were
A Novel
Imbolo Mbue - 2021-03-09
Goodreads Rating
This powerful novel tells the story of a small African village facing environmental devastation caused by an American oil company. The people of the village are left with few options but to fight back against a corrupt government and profit-driven corporation. Through the eyes of a generation of children and the family of a revolutionary girl named Thula, the novel explores the themes of ancestral land, sacrifice, and the collision of colonialism with modern exploitation.

New read! Imbolo Mbue’s “How Beautiful We Were.” It is brilliant. I started reading it 2 hours ago, a quarter of the way through & there’s no way I’ll be sleeping tonight. Isn’t it the best feeling to find an unputdownable book? The best.      source

Goodreads Rating
Discover the vast history of strategic thinking with Sir Lawrence Freedman's "Strategy: A History," which captures the evolution of strategy across various domains from military and politics to economics and corporate planning. Freedman's narrative moves seamlessly from Sun Tzu and Machiavelli's ancient philosophies to Alfred Sloan's modern business strategies, reflecting on how each of them adapted to their environment and challenges. A thought-provoking read that challenges our perceptions of control and adaptation in the face of the unpredictable.
