Smarter Better Faster: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business
This new book from Charles Duhigg, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Power of Habit, explores the science of productivity and why managing how you think—rather than what you think—can transform your life. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics—as well as experiences from educational reformers, FBI agents and CEOs—this scrupulously researched book reveals that productive people don’t simply act differently but view the world in a profoundly different way.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts—those who prefer listening to speaking. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that it is to introverts, such as Rosa Parks and Steve Wozniak, that we owe many of the great contributions to society. Cain asserts that we drastically undervalue introverts, and she shows the negative ramifications it has on us. Cain tracks the rise of the “Extrovert Ideal” throughout the 20th century and examines how this notion pervades our culture today. Cain’s research is enhanced by stories of real people who have found success as introverts. Passionately argued and meticulously researched, Quiet has the potential to permanently alter how we view introverts and how they see themselves.
