Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World
by David Epstein
Time and time again, we are told that success is tied to specialization; that is, to become a leader, you must pick just one area in which to focus. Range flips that advice around and gives voice to the generalists—the people who know the benefits of building knowledge, skills, and capabilities in numerous professional areas. I love how this book highlights those of us who thrive when we're pursuing multiple interests and celebrates multidisciplinary work.

Outsmart Your Brain: How to Master Your Mind When Emotions Take the Wheel
by Marcia Reynolds
I recommend this book because it offers the reader new degrees of freedom to make better decisions and build better relationships by consciously choosing how they want to feel and act.

Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
By Kristin Neff
I recommend this book because we can only live in love and compassion toward one another to the degree that we live in love and compassion toward ourselves. Neff introduces an alternative to self-esteem that many experts believe is a better and more effective path to happiness: self-compassion.
