Nonfiction Books to Change Your Life

A Couple of Quick Looks

Angela Duckworth's Grit: The Power of Passion and PerseveranceI thoroughly enjoyed Duckworth's book. Though I'd listened to her TED Talk and heard her interviewed several times on the Freakonomics podcast, this expansion of her theories and discoveries is thought-provoking.

Chip Heath and Dan Heath's The Power of Moments: Why Certain Experiences Have Extraordinary ImpactThis was just great. I really enjoyed the Heath brothers' perspectives and their highlighting of the small things necessary to "make moments."

Michelle Obama's BecomingMichelle Obama's memoir is so perfect. Her account of her childhood, coming of age, marriage to Barack, and slide into her new identity as FLOTUS is moving and honest and vulnerable. She doesn't hide her struggles or her flaws, and I so appreciated her perspectives on what she learned and how she grew as a person. What a memoir.
