by Clayton M. Christensen
An innovation classic. From Steve Jobs to Jeff Bezos, Clay
Christensen’s work continues to underpin today’s most innovative leaders
The bestselling classic on disruptive innovation, by renowned author Clayton M. Christensen.
His work is cited by the world’s best-known thought leaders, from Steve
Jobs to Malcolm Gladwell. In this classic bestseller—one of the most
influential business books of all time—innovation expert Clayton
Christensen shows how even the most outstanding companies can do
everything right—yet still lose market leadership.
Christensen explains why most companies miss out on new waves of
innovation. No matter the industry, he says, a successful company with
established products will get pushed aside unless managers know how and
when to abandon traditional business practices.
Offering both successes and failures from leading companies as a guide,
The Innovator’s Dilemma gives you a set of rules for capitalizing on the
phenomenon of disruptive innovation.
Sharp, cogent, and provocative—and consistently noted as one of the most
valuable business ideas of all time—The Innovator’s Dilemma is the book
no manager, leader, or entrepreneur should be without.

Cycle Analytics For Traders : John F Ehlers
Cycles are a unique kind of trading analytics, being one of the few
types of market data that can be accurately measured. But understanding
what the cycles mean and which trades to make based on them is an
extremely complex process. Cycle Analytics for Traders is a technical
resource for self-directed traders that explains the scientific
underpinnings of the filters and indicators used to make effective and
profitable trading decisions. Rather than simply using cycle analytics
on blind faith, this book explores and explains the how and why of
Though technical in nature, Cycle Analytics for Traders emphasizes
simplicity rather than mathematical purity, taking a pragmatic
real-world approach to attaining effective trading results. It allows
traders to think of indicators and trading strategies in the frequency
domain as well as their motions in the time domain, letting them select
the most efficient filter lengths for the job at hand. Traders with
little mathematical background will learn how to assess general market
conditions to their advantage while technically astute traders will be
able to create indicators and strategies that automatically adapt to
measured market conditions using the computer code described here.
Additionally, author John Ehlers explains several vital concepts all
traders should understand: how to eliminate or use Spectral Dilation to
their advantage; how to use Automatic Gain Control to normalize
indicator amplitude swings; the fact that all indicators are statistical
rather than absolute; how to use advanced cookbook filters; several
different methods for estimating market spectra and sifting out the
Dominant Cycle; and how to use transforms to improve the display and
interpretation of indicators.
Cycle Analytics for Traders shows traders how to approach trading as a
statistical process that should be judged from the long-term view,
rather than a small sample set of just a few trades—no matter how
profitable those few are. With this practical and informative book as a
guide, any trader can master cycle analytics, letting statistics and
science light the way to long-term trading success.

The Successful Investor: What 80 Million People Need to Know to Invest Profitably and Avoid Big Lossesby
William J. O'Neil
More than 80 million investors lost 50 to 80 percent of their savings
in the recent stock market crash. Investor's Business Daily publisher
William J. O'Neil, however, was one of the first to see--and warn
investors about--the dangers inherent in what had been, up to that
point, a historic bull market run. Those who followed his counsel were
able to sidestep devastating losses and emerge with their sizable bull
market profits largely intact.
In The Successful Investor, O'Neil
steps up to tell all investors how they can make money and, more
important, avoid losses in up markets, down markets, and everything in
between. Showing how mistakes made in the recent market collapse were
amazingly similar to those made in previous down cycles, O'Neil reveals
simple steps investors can follow to avoid costly mistakes and:
O'Neil has succeeded in virtually every market environment by following
a stable, nonemotional investment plan. In his latest book, O'Neil
explains how anyone can follow that plan to become a profitable
long-term investor, regardless of market tides or turns.
The Successful Investor will
bring reason and welcome relief to all investors buffeted and
bewildered by the perils and uncertainty of today's stock market.

Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leaderby Brent Schlender (Author), Rick Tetzeli (Author), George Newbern
There have been many books - on a large and small scale - about Steve
Jobs, one of the most famous CEOs in history. But this book is
different from all the others.
Becoming Steve Jobs takes
on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs.
The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half
genius, half jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who
slighted friends and family alike. Becoming Steve Jobs answers
the central question about the life and career of the Apple cofounder
and CEO: How did a young man so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled
from the company he founded become the most effective visionary
business leader of our time, ultimately transforming the daily lives of
billions of people?
Drawing on incredible and sometimes exclusive
access, Schlender and Tetzeli tell a different story of a real human
being who wrestled with his failings and learned to maximize his
strengths over time. Their rich, compelling narrative is filled with
stories never told before from the people who knew Jobs best and who
decided to open up to the authors, including his family, former inner
circle executives, and top people at Apple, Pixar, and Disney. In
addition Brent knew Jobs personally for 25 years and drew upon his many
interviews with him, on and off the record, in writing the book. He and
Rick humanize the man and explain, rather than simply describe, his
behavior. Along the way the book provides rich context about the
technology revolution we all have lived through and the ways in which
Jobs changed our world.
Schlender and Tetzeli make clear that
Jobs' astounding success at Apple was far more complicated than simply
picking the right products: he became more patient, he learned to trust
his inner circle, and he discovered the importance of growing the
company incrementally rather than only shooting for dazzling,
