Reinvent the Wheel: How Top Leaders Leverage Well-Being for Success
Megan McNealy Nicholas Brealey, 288 pp., $29.95

This book will teach you how to do and be well simultaneously. Reinvent the Wheel lays out the 18 spokes of what total well-being looks like, as well as secrets and success stories. Each of the chapters highlights a spoke along the wheel (six for the body, six for the mind, and six for the spirit). McNealy takes on the mistaken belief that doing well is more important than being well as a means to illustrate how well-being promotes and accelerates success. This book will help you create a 360-degree up-leveling of your life so that you can turbocharge your path toward achieving your goals.

The book is a journey through culture, from ancient to modern. Horowitz explains how to make organizational culture purposeful by spotlighting four models of leadership and culture-building. He then connects these leadership examples to modern case studies and offers guidance to help any company understand its strat-egy and build a successful culture.
