1. Man’s Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust

Review

Remarkable…It changed my life and became a part of all that I live and all that I teach.

An enduring work of survival literature. ― New York Times

A book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive — John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

I have loved this book for so many years, and I think every human being should read it. — Simon Sinek

Viktor Frankl…one of the moral heroes of the 20th century. His insights into human freedom, dignity and the search for meaning are deeply humanizing, and have the power to transform lives. His works are essential reading for those who seek to understand the human condition.

About the Author

Viktor Frankl was born in 1905 and was a Viennese psychiatrist and neurologist who developed the theory of logotherapy. Logotherapy is a type of existential analysis. He was a student of the University of Vienna where he studied medicine, focusing on the subjects of suicide and depression. Although he was influenced by Alfred Adler and Sigmund Freud, his work in the field of psychiatry was very different from theirs. He has won many illustrious awards in his time. He passed away on September 2, 1997.

2. Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking 

Review

Marvellous. The most important book published for a decade — Lynne Truss ― Sunday Telegraph

Quiet is a very timely book, and Cain’s central thesis is fresh and important. Maybe the extrovert ideal is no longer as powerful as it was; perhaps it is time we all stopped to listen to the still, small voice of calm — Daisy Goodwin ― The Sunday Times

Susan Cain’s Quiet has sparked a quiet revolution. In our booming culture, hers is a still, small voice that punches above its weight. Perhaps rather than sitting back and asking people to speak up, managers and company leaders might lean forward and listen — Megan Walsh ― The Times

I can’t get Quiet out of my head. It is an important book – so persuasive and timely and heartfelt it should inevitably effect change in schools and offices — Jon Ronson ― The Guardian

A startling, important, and readable page-turner ― Naomi Wolf, author of The Beauty Myth

3. The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make the Most of

Review

Meg Jay takes the specific complaints of twentysomething life and puts them to diagnostic use ― New Yorker

Any recent college graduate mired in a quarter-life crisis or merely dazed by the freedom of post-collegiate existence should consider it required reading ― Slate

I strongly recommend The Defining Decade for anyone in their 20s trying to figure out their life’s direction. You’ll learn how to search productively, how to avoid being indulgent, and how to turn good opportunities into great ones — Po Bronson ― author of What Should I Do With My Life?

The Defining Decade is the book twentysomethings have been waiting for. It will not tell you what you should do with your life, but it will inspire, motivate, and educate you to figure it out — Rachel Simmons ― author of The Good Girl

The Defining Decade is eye-opening, important, and a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it — Wendy Mogel ― author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus

4. Mindset: Changing The Way You think To Fulfil Your Potential

Review

An utterly compelling story of how the way we think shapes our success.Essential reading for anyone with aspirations.

Will prove to be one of the most influential books ever about motivation.

A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. I have found Carol Dweck’s work on mindsets invaluable in my own life, and even life-changing in my attitudes toward the challenges that, over the years, become more demanding rather than less. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.

If you manage any people or if you are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.

Book Description

An authoritative, practical guide on how to develop the mindset necessary for success, both personal and professional.

About the Author

Rans ford Professor of Psychology at Columbia University and is now the Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her scholarly book Self-Theories: Their Role in Motivation, Personality, and Development was named Book of the Year by the World Education Fellowship. Her work has been featured in such publications as The New Yorker, Time, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Boston Globe, and she has appeared on Today and 20/20.
