            From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life (Hardback)

            This essential book by behavioural scientist and journalist Arthur C. Brooks is based on a feature he wrote for The Atlantic, which has been read over one million times and remains one of the magazine's most popular articles. This is a happiness strategy for what Brooks sees as o...ur inevitable professional decline, and a way to convert that decline from being a source of regret into an opportunity for growth and transcendence. Early in adulthood, our expectations about the future are two-fold: our happiness will rise, and our professional abilities will increase. Unfortunately, for the majority of us, happiness declines gradually throughout adulthood until its nadir in one's fifties. The result is an abrupt shock for many people in their fifties: low happiness and professional decline, neither of which is anticipated, and thus for which we have no good strategies. The typical reaction is to 'rage against the dying of the light.' That is, work harder and longer to get your groove back and stay abreast of young people. Unfortunately, that strategy doesn't work and is really only successful at causing anger and frustration. There must be a better way. There are several, and they promise to make age sixty happier than fifty (and seventy and eighty better still). But to understand these strategies, we need a deep dive into the world of psychology, brain science and economics. We need to visit a few gurus in the mountains of India. We need to understand what J. S. Bach did right and Charles Darwin did wrong. Most importantly, we need to be willing to change our whole approach to life and love. This book shows how, in detail - resulting in four specific commitments - Jump - Serve - Worship and Connect.

Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagne...r Books. Fed up with the isolation and the micro-aggressions, she's thrilled when Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They've only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events cause Nella to become Public Enemy Number One and Hazel, the Office Darling. Then the notes begin to appear on Nella's desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW. It's hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realises that there is a lot more at stake than her career. A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.

            A refreshing approach to entrepreneurship centered on staying small and avoiding growth - maximizing happiness, sustainability and profitability. Paul Jarvis left the corporate world when he realized that working in a high-pressure, high-profile world was not his idea of success.... Instead, he now works for himself out of his home, and lives a much more rewarding and productive life. He no longer has to contend with an environment that constantly demands more productivity, more output and more growth. In Company of One, Jarvis explains how you can do the same, including: * Planning to set up * Determining desired revenues * Keeping clients happy * And, of course, doing all this on your own. Jarvis makes a compelling case for making your business better instead of bigger. A must-read for any entrepreneur who prioritizes a rich life over riches. -CAL NEWPORT, bestselling author of DEEP WORK and DIGITAL MINIMALISM You're not a machine, so why would you run your business like one? Company of One shows you another way. If you've ever wondered how to have a business that works for you-instead of the other way around-you need this book. -CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, bestselling author of SIDE HUSTLE and THE $100 STARTUP
