FOR WOMEN

Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. The book is a collection of essays from areas such as politics, criticism, and feminism. It is funny yet insightful, worth a read.

Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. Written quite simply, Brown talks about the importance of being vulnerable as a leader. And how being vulnerable is NOT a negative trait. Her website has some interesting stuff too, if you're more interested.

Nice Girls Don't get the Corner Office by Lois Frankel. The book lists some 100 mistakes we women make at work and practical ways to stop doing them. It is a quick read and something to do while traveling o rbefore bedtime.

THE CLASSICS

How to win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. This one never gets old. Some of it might be too simple but that is the beauty of it, it is simple and implementable! If you have not read it yet, buy a copy. It will be well worth what you spend.

Brief Answers to Big Questions by Stephen Hawking. Buy it. Read it. Again, this is such an amazing book where Hawking answers tough questions most simply. If science books are not your thing, then you MUST read this, Hawking explains things with a dry wit and great sense of humor. You can relax with this book on your vacation!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  A self help book from 1989 that is still a best seller and of great value to the reader.

CONTEMPORARY

Sapiens, A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. An ambitious book that covers the journey of dominance of humankind and how our ability to tell stories and believe in the power of the collective is the key to it. It is a good read, a long read and while some bits are contentious and exaggerated, it is worth a read for his sheer ambition of covering entire humankind's history in one book!

Where Good Ideas Come From : The natural history of innovation by Steve Johnson. This book, again ambitious, covers just what the title says. 'From Darwin and Freud to the halls of Google and Apple, Johnson investigates the innovation hubs throughout modern time and pulls out the approaches and commonalities that seem to appear at moments of originality', says the description and the book lives up to it....sort of. OK, you be the judge of it.

Also, may we recommend Johnson's TED talk of the same name? The talk is quite fascinating.
