What You Do Is Who You Are: How to Create Your Business Culture by Ben Horowitz

Ben's last book (The Hard Thing About Hard Things) is one of my favorite business books of all time so my expectations for this were really high and, man, did he exceed them! I absolutely loved the lessons on the culture we create at work, and as a massive history nerd, the historical references were such an unexpected treat.

We're Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True by Gabrielle Union

This one has been in my TBR pile for a while and now I'm kicking myself for not picking it up sooner. Gabrielle's writing feels so utterly authentic that I'm convinced we actually ARE girlfriends having wine and trading stories.

Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy by David D. Burns, M.D.

My friend Tom Bilyeu and I trade our favorite non-fiction reads and this was his recommendation but now I'm stealing it for my own. It's about mindset and how our thoughts affect our feelings and how those feelings shape our reality. It should be required reading for the world!
