New books in May-June 2017


The upstarts:
how Uber, Airbnb and the killer companies of the new Silicon Valley are changing the world

Brad Stone

Doriot and Tanoto Libraries

HC100 .A S86 2017


Ten years ago, the idea of getting into a stranger’s car, or walking into a stranger’s home, would have seemed bizarre and dangerous, but today it’s as common as ordering a book online. Uber and Airbnb are household names: redefining neighbourhoods, challenging the way governments regulate business and changing the way we travel.

In the spirit of iconic Silicon Valley renegades like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, a new generation of entrepreneurs is sparking yet another cultural upheaval through technology. They are among the Upstarts, idiosyncratic founders with limitless drive and an abundance of self-confidence. Young, hungry and brilliant, they are rewriting the traditional rules of business, changing our day-to-day lives and often sidestepping serious ethical and legal obstacles in the process.

“The Upstarts” is the definitive account of a dawning age of tenacity, creativity, conflict and wealth. In Brad Stone’s highly anticipated and riveting account of the most radical companies of the new Silicon Valley, we find out how it all started, and how the world is wildly different than it was ten years ago.

Welcome 17Ds!


Dear 17D Class,

Welcome to INSEAD.

Here are a few pointers to get a head start:

Are you in the job search mode yet?

Stop by on the ground floor of the library to check out our job search corner. Last year’s most popular titles: Ace Your CaseCase in Point, Crack the Case.

Looking to improve your Français, Italiano, or Deutsch to ace the 3rd language requirement?

Check out our language books, here is a selected list. For more material on various languages, just use the Library catalogue.

What about textbooks?

Most recent editions of textbooks cannot be checked out of the library, however, you are welcome to pick one up from the shelves on the ground floor and read it “in house”. No need to carry these heavy items around everyday. We also have a small selection of e-textbooks (look for the ‘online access’ mention).

Where can I find articles on a topic? How do I start researching a company?

You can start on this databases page, use these research guides or video tutorials.  If you want to know how to get full text articles from the Harvard Business Review or the Financial Times, create a target list of companies, find SWOT analyses and more, contact the research librarians.

How do I contact you?

The Doriot Library is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm. Contact the information desk during these hours or contact a specific person/department using the staff directory page.

We look forward to seeing you,
