We reckon the title alone would have inspired Darth Vader to pick up this book. But the positive message and the art to happiness might make him hurl it across the room. Andy Cope and Andy Whittaker dishes out solid principles and advice to ensure you focus on what you’re good at and become super brilliant both at work and at home (see what we mean by throwing the book across the room?).
Well in any case, this is one book Vader really needs to read.
Irresponsible Government examines how the current Canadian government checks against the founding principles of responsible government established by the Fathers of Confederation in 1867, and how it has kind of.... not done so well. Perhaps this could be either a wake up call for the dark lord in terms of improving his Imperial Senate? Or will the government ever see democracy?
Why should we be interested in the galaxy in the first place, and—with such a restricted viewpoint—how can we ever hope to learn anything about it? These questions are addressed in this book, which draws on an eclectic heritage of science, philosophy, mysticism, poetry and fiction.
The notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed has offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hilarious, witty and downright outrageous tweets are now in this book -- guaranteed to make you gasp in horror and laugh. Sometimes, the dark lord needs to engage in leisure once in a while, and laugh at those people who might just be worse people than he is.
Revolt of the Tartars is a historical novella – though classified by some critics as a “historical essay” – written by the author of the celebrated bestselling classic Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, Thomas de Quincey. We imagine Darth Vader would be a history nerd, who would want to know the intimate details of the rise and fall of empires.
We're not sure what the economic model of the Galactic Empire runs under, but we imagine it wouldn't be an entirely fair capitalistic model, since there are slave traders, mercenaries, bounty hunters and many people living under immense poverty. Or maybe... it really is a capitalist society. Either way, a good leader must know his economics, and Darth Vader would put this on his to-read list.
What makes a leader worth following? Darth Vader knows its fear and power, obviously. But maybe John Heider can give him a bit more insight into how soft power can motivate and perhaps even inspire his stormtroopers.
This husband-wife reconciliation story is the one that Darth Vader never had, since Padme died shortly after giving birth to their twins. We imagine him silently weeping in his helmet after reading this book.
