Book Corner

Who doesn´t love a good book that provokes considered reflection or takes our understanding of current affairs to a new level? And who doesn’t enjoy being introduced to new concepts which help to enrich our worldview? Who hasn’t wanted to hear directly from an author what the background is to a book or what the key insights from his or her latest book are? The book corner was the chance for just that. Esteemed authors and global thought leaders shared their reflections on key insights from their latest books.
