    As Spinoza's inflammatory manuscripts circulated underground, he lived a humble existence in The Hague, grinding optical lenses to make ends meet. Meanwhile, in the glittering salons of Paris, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was climbing the ladder of courtly success. In between trips to the opera & groundbreaking work in mathematics, philosophy & jurisprudence, he took every opportunity to denounce Spinoza, relishing his self-appointed role as 'God's attorney.' This exquisitely written philosophical romance of attraction & repulsion, greed & virtue, religion & heresy, gives narrative form to an epic jousting of metaphysical ideas in the 17th century.

    CEOS, consultants, and other financial wizards may have successfully made it to the top positions of their fields, but for some reason, they often fall prey to the myths of management. In his book 'The Management Myth,' Matthew Stewart seeks to dispell these myths and reveal the roots behind this flawed line of thought. Stewart addresses the rise and fall of management consulting and analyzes where things went wrong. Instead of celebrating the merits of choosing accounting or some other business-related field of study for an undergraduate degree, Stewart emphasizes the importance of a background in philosophy. His book is an invaluable guide to those in the business world.
