Meditation is so much more than mantras and yoga. It's an ancient spiritual discipline, practiced by world religions for thousands of years. Research has shown that it's far more than just "hippie" nonsense. In fact, it's been shown to have positive benefits for both our physical and mental well-being, reducing stress and combating depression and insomnia.

The Ottoman world was nothing like an exotic fairy tale featuring tyrant sultans, mean pashas, and ill-fated harem women. The true stories of genuine sultans and princes are a bit more complicated and no less exciting. Incredible facts about this empire still surprise anyone who starts discovering those stories. You’ll find out that, for quite a while, this Islamic state was effectively ruled by women, and that’s just the beginning.

Would hate to know I had to list all the rulers & their dates of ruling. But, for an empire to last for 600 years something had to right. With giving & taking from other cultures it survived. Kinda shocked nothing was said about the French in Egypt & the Ottoman Turks landing a army there which was annihilated by Napoleons army. That’s just a minor point because all readers have a different perspective on the subject at hand.

The author used real examples of large companies Ericsson and Microsoft, companies that are adapting small company flexibility. To new world companies like Airborne and Lyft, and Etsy who have moved at lightning speed, becoming world leaders in record time, the author takes pains to illustrate just how new companies are using agility to move forward completely unencumbered by traditional systems and business mores.
