The Power of Now – by Eckhart Tolle

‘A guide to spiritual enlightenment’

We’ve tackled another spiritual book. It’s all about the present moment. We are too often caught reliving the past or obsessing over the future that we neglect the Now. There are a lot of lessons to take from The Power of Now!

‘Harnessing Science to Change the World’

Bill Nye, The Science Guy, is back! After his hit TV show in the 1990s, Big Bad Bill has a new book. He also has a new series on Netflix – ‘Bill Nye Saves The World’. In this book, Bill opens our eyes to the fact that climate change WILL affect everyone’s life. The human race has always used science to fix the messes we’ve created, so now we need to use science to fix climate change. Bill presents a heap of different ideas. The ultimate aim is to inspire the New Generation and gives people ideas to experiment with.

‘Ignite Change through Speeches, Stories, Ceremonies and Symbols’

A cool, well-structured, well designed book about creating change. The book is centred around the ‘Innovation Life-Cycle’ and the ‘Venture Scape’. It takes us through the story of change through the stages: Dream, Leap, Fight, Climb, Arrive and Re-Dream. At each stage, you as the ‘Torch Bearer’ and the leader need to light the way for your travellers, using speeches, stories, ceremonies and symbols.

‘The Journey Beyond Yourself’

Today, we’re getting spiritual. This book talks about becoming free from limitations, soaring beyond your boundaries, finding inner peace and freedom, and learning to navigate your thoughts and emotions. We were perhaps a little out of our comfort zone on this one, but keep your heart open and don’t close over on us – the path to unconditional happiness is here.

Escape from Cubicle Nation – by Pamela Slim

‘From Corporate Prisoner to Thriving Entrepreneur’

The fancy titles and steady pay checks of a ‘safe’ corporate job aren’t so safe anymore… And perhaps it doesn’t make us that happy either. Pamela Slim’s book presents ideas for becoming self-employed and how you can go about it, but also highlights a lot of the risks involved.

‘How to become a masterful communicator and public speaker’

Dale Carnegie, also the author of one of our favourite books How to Win Friends and Influence People, gives us a great toolkit to take and apply to our communication and public speaking. This book is based on his course, the same course that Warren Buffet referred to as the greatest investment he’s ever made (and he’s made some pretty good investments!).

Some of the things we cover:

– what every listener really wants

– overcoming stage fright

– using humour effectively

– story telling

– making a positive first impression

– the Magic Formula

Primal Body, Primal Mind – by Nora Gedgaudas

Today, what a lot of us tend to put in our bodies would hardly be recognized as food to our ancestors. Our modern diet has influenced our susceptability to diseases such as cancer, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, heart diseases and ADD – just to name a few.

Primal Body, Primal Mind‘ shows us sustainable diet strategies to curb sugar cravings, promote fat burning and weight loss, reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep and moods, increase energy and immunity, and enhance memory and brain function.

The paleo diet is based on our evolutionary biology into what we are today. 99.99% of our genes developed before agriculture. ‘Primal Body, Primal Mind‘ combines your paleolithic needs with modern nutritional and medical research for complete mind – body wellness.

The paleo diet, which suggests a high proportion of animal fats is controviersal to many people – but if you want to learn what the diet can do for you then this book is for you!

Mini Habits – by Stephen Guise

‘Smaller Habits, Bigger Results’

Studies have shown that over 45% of our behaviours is dictated by our habits. This is because it’s far easier and consumes far less energy to do the things we’re used to, rather than trying to weigh up different options and make decisions. This book provides an extremely compelling argument for starting ‘stupid small’ habits that are too easy NOT to do until they become ingrained your your everyday way of life.

‘Change the way that you work forever’

Rework is a collection of short chapters that will challenge the way you approach work and business. The authors tackle the conventional wisdom.
