At some point in the last year, you might have wondered how other women manage to mix family and work successfully, and “Power Moms” will fill you in. You’ll see how things got this way, why you need an on-off switch in your personal life, where you can look for help and inspiration, and why it’s a good idea to share household chores. There are interviews with experienced women here.

How many times a day in the past year have you had to re-think something you figured was settled? In “Think Again,” you’ll see that having second (or third, or fourth) thoughts aren’t such a bad thing.

The trick, as it turns out, is to know how to be a critical thinker and be willing to unlearn that which no longer serves you. In this incredible book, you’ll see how being wrong can be a joy because it gives you a chance to learn and consider.  

If you spent any time during the pandemic cruising the internet, you might’ve landed on Amazon a time or two and wondered how that business has become such a behemoth. You need to read “Working Backwards: Insights, Stories, and Secrets from Inside Amazon.” You’ll see how the company hires; creates and leads teams; and changes direction.
