The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey

This product was recommended by Christopher Andrew from 420 Expert Advisers

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of my favorite books on leadership. This book, which I read 1.5 years ago, is still relevant and classic to me. It is based on developing character and adhering to ethical standards. It is founded on the ideals of justice, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. It employs a variety of principles and methodologies to address personal and professional issues and holistic approaches. It includes a variety of answers for severe day-to-day issues. This book is ideal for developing the leader’s character.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

This product was recommended by Christopher Andrew from 420 Expert Advisers

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, has written a game-changing book. It was one of the best-sellers. Finding a mentor in the job, negotiating for what you want, speaking your opinion, becoming a leader in your company, building an equal partnership in your family life, and what genuine equality should look like in the business are all topics covered in this book. Here, she maintains a continuous theme of blending light humor with sharing from her extensive leadership experience at firms like Facebook, Google, and the United States Treasury Department. This is a book for the ambitious lady who must manage her household.

The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle by Matt Cain

This product was recommended by Deepa Tailor from Tailor Law

For those who feel it’s too late to try in life, this can definitely shift their perspective. Through the personal story of Albert Entwistle, one realizes reaching out to people is never too late. You don’t have to compromise on things you used to love just because you started late. It also touches upon his own experience of falling in love with a man, and of those who had to face shunning due to their love. I feel for millennials it’s perfect because both issues talked about in this book: a late start and injustice of choice, are current issues. This might give them a positive outlook to look at a better future.

The book is full of delicious recipes, each one preceded by a story sharing thoughts and ideas about creating a life that’s full of memories and focuses on the idea that food can bring us together. By the end of the book, you’ll be convinced that sharing experiences with simple but tasty dishes will help solidify and deepen the important relationships in your life.

The Confidence Code by Katty Kay

This product was recommended by Natalia Morozova from Cohen, Tucker & Ades P.C.

This book is a practical guide for women who strive to be more confident. Kay and Shipman offer unique perspectives on the matter in the form of thorough scientific research. They talk about how your DNA influences you to gradually get over bad behavior learned as a child, amongst other enlightening insights. I highly recommend The Confidence Code to women at any stage of their lives because it is full of fresh perspectives and advice for aspiring female entrepreneurs and those who may need confidence boosters.

This book is for women who want to learn how to become more intentional, confident daters. It not only includes concrete skills, such as how to create an epic dating profile, decrease first date anxiety, pace a budding relationship, and how to have an exclusivity conservation, but also inspires a positive mindset of abundance and hope that your person is out there and how to attract them!

This product was recommended by Peg O’Connor from Peg O’Connor Author

An expansive alternative for those who have struggled with the higher power of AA’s 12-step program, Higher and Friendly Powers offers a sense of human decency, moral ideals, and even a better version of oneself. In Higher and Friendly Powers, Peg O’Connor addresses an audience much like herself: those in recovery who have struggled with the Christian-centric God at the heart of Alcoholics Anonymous. The book, which combines Peg’s deep personal wisdom with James’s adventurous intellect, has the power to transform the way we live.

Life 3.0 by Max Tegmark

This product was recommended by Adam Enfroy from AdamEnfroy

Because it’s a story about the future that explores the possibility of the seamless fusion of humanity and Artificial intelligence that doesn’t end in world-breaking chaos and tragedy. It’s a story of hope that lets the reader imagine that the future might be glorious and filled with wonder and that we don’t have to be scared of tomorrow, we can write and create our own happy ending. And what’s more uplifting than a finale that adheres to the often ignored philosophy of happily ever after?
