<b><i>New York Times</i> bestseller</b><div><b><i>Wall Street Journal</i> bestseller </b></div><div><b><i>USA Today</i> bestseller </b></div><div><b><i>Publishers Weekly</i> bestseller </b></div><div><b><i>Forbes</i> "15 Best Business Books of the Year"</b></div><div><b><i>People</i> "Book of the Week"</b></div><div><b>AARP Editor's Pick <br /> Translated into 34 languages and counting<br /><br />"<i>Presence</i> feels at once concrete and inspiring, simple but ambitious--above all, truly powerful." -- <i>New York Times Book Review </i><br /></b><br />Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach our lives' biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with anxiety, and leave them with regret. <br /><br />By accessing our personal power, we can achieve "presence," the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we're making on others and instead adjust the impression we've been making on ourselves. As Harvard professor Amy Cuddy's revolutionary book reveals, we don't need to embark on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives. <br /><br />Amy Cuddy has galvanized tens of millions of viewers around the world with her TED talk about "power poses." Now she presents the enthralling science underlying these and many other fascinating body-mind effects, and teaches us how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments, perform at our best, and connect with and empower others to do the same.<br /><br />Brilliantly researched, impassioned, and accessible, <i>Presence</i> is filled with stories of individuals who learned how to flourish during the stressful moments that once terrified them. Every reader will learn how to approach their biggest challenges with confidence instead of dread, and to leave them with satisfaction instead of regret.<br /> </div>

<p>In this essential handbook—a blend of <em>Rich Dad, Poor Dad</em> and <em>The Happiness Project</em>—the co-host of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and bestselling author Phil Town.</p><p>Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town’s eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and bestselling financial author of <em>Rule #1</em>, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing—until she realized that her time-consuming career as lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. </p><p>In<em> Invested</em>, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the <em>Forbes</em> 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father’s investing knowledge into twelve easy-to understand lessons. </p><p>In each chapter, Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepens the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy—and profitable—investing can be.</p><p>Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between a headstrong daughter and her mostly patient dad, <em>Invested </em>makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable, and will help you formulate your own investment plan—and foster the confidence to put it into action.</p>

<b>In a book inspired by her popular TED talk, <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Reshma Saujani empowers women and girls to embrace imperfection and bravery.</b><br /><br />Imagine if you lived without the fear of not being good enough. If you didn't care how your life looked on Instagram, or worry about what total strangers thought of you. Imagine if you could let go of the guilt, and stop beating yourself up for tiny mistakes. What if, in every decision you faced, you took the bolder path?<br /><br />Too many of us feel crushed under the weight of our own expectations. We run ourselves ragged trying to please everyone, all the time. We lose sleep ruminating about whether we may have offended someone, pass up opportunities that take us out of our comfort zones, and avoid rejection at all costs.<br /><br />There's a reason we act this way, Reshma says. As girls, we were taught to play it safe. Well-meaning parents and teachers praised us for being quiet and polite, urged us to be careful so we didn't get hurt, and steered us to activities at which we could shine. <br /><br />The problem is that perfect girls grow up to be women who are afraid to fail. It's time to stop letting our fears drown out our dreams and narrow our world, along with our chance at happiness.<br /><br />By choosing bravery over perfection, we can find the power to claim our voice, to leave behind what makes us unhappy, and go for the things we genuinely, passionately want. Perfection may set us on a path that feels safe, but bravery leads us to the one we're authentically meant to follow.<br /><br />In <i>Brave, Not Perfect</i>, Reshma shares powerful insights and practices to help us override our perfect girl training and make bravery a lifelong habit. By being brave, not perfect, we can all become the authors of our biggest, boldest, and most joyful life.

<b>Ready to take the next step in your career . . . but not sure what's holding you back? Read on.</b><br /><br /> Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers--men and women--to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and <i>different</i> roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up. Simply put, what got you here won't get you there . . . and you might not even realize your blind spots until it's too late. <br /><br /> <b>Are you great with the details?</b> To rise, you need to do less and delegate more. <br /><br /> <b>Are you a team player?</b> To advance, you need to take credit as easily as you share it.<br /><br /> <b>Are you a star networker?</b> Leaders know a network is no good unless you know how to use it.<br /><br /> Sally and Marshall identify the 12 habits that hold women back as they seek to advance, showing them <em>why</em> what worked for them in the past might actually be sabotaging their future success. Building on Marshall's classic best seller <i>What Got You Here Won't Get You There</i>, their new book <i>How Women Rise</i> is essential reading for any woman who is ready to advance to the next level.
