READING: Fifty-two inspiring and insightful profiles of history’s brightest female scientists. In 2013, the New York Times published an obituary for Yvonne Brill. It began: “She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job, and took eight years off from work to raise three children.” It wasn’t until the second paragraph that readers discovered why the Times had devoted several hundred words to her life: Brill was a brilliant rocket scientist who invented a propulsion system to keep communications satellites in orbit, and had recently been awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. Among the questions the obituary—and consequent outcry—prompted were, Who are the role models for today’s female scientists, and where can we find the stories that cast them in their true light? Headstrong delivers a powerful, global, and engaging response. Covering Nobel Prize winners and major innovators, as well as lesser-known but hugely significant scientists who influence our every day, Rachel Swaby’s vibrant profiles span centuries of courageous thinkers and illustrate how each one’s ideas developed, from their first moment of scientific engagement through the research and discovery for which they’re best known. This fascinating tour reveals these 52 women at their best—while encouraging and inspiring a new generation of girls to put on their lab coats. From the Trade Paperback edition.

READING: It's September 1975, and fifteen-year-old Matt Jerue is in for the fight of his life: surviving high school. He has two youthful desires: to play in a band with his three best friends and to see Taryn McIntyre, a girl he's had a crush on since eighth grade. But despair, anger, and frustration control him during his sophomore year as he struggles to get to know Taryn despite his feelings of inadequacy and her own insecurities and misperceptions. When a rumor spreads through school that he plans to get even with Taryn after he's suspended, it results in his own beating, expulsion, and, ultimately, a temporary restraining order. But when Taryn approaches him for help, Matt knows it's his chance to prove he's not the person she thinks he is. So he agrees to help her, under one condition... "Headstrong" is a bittersweet love story where love and hate are emotions wrapped so tightly together that their incompatible proximity creates impassioned words, heated arguments, and intense looks. But regardless of whether love fails or prevails, the passion, the heat, and the intensity remain... in perhaps the best experience of all.

READING: This breakthrough book challenges traditional views about business, leadership, and performance by linking the benefits of nutrition and exercise with the power of neuroscience to optimize executive performance. In today’s dynamic business climate, despite technological advances, executives spend more time at work than ever before. Faster-moving markets, shorter deadlines, constant change, and tighter budgets all mean greater pressure and increased energy demands. Headstrong Performance explores the research behind the deterioration of executive performance as a result of stress mismanagement and reveals the neuroscience behind stress and poor health behaviors commonly witnessed in the workplace. These misguided coping strategies ultimately result in employee disengagement, decreased business performance, and subsequently, a suffering bottom line. Armed with the latest science, this book provides numerous highly effective health strategies that will enable today’s professionals to work toward improved, sustainable business performance—and remain at the top of their game for years to come. Colin Sampson, senior vice president of SAP, says: “Headstrong Performance is a life-changing message about healthy work-life balance, good nutrition, rest, and regular exercise, all leading to an improvement in performance, individually and as a team. A great way to bring about real, positive, and productive change.”

READING: From Samantha Nutt, award-winning humanitarian and #1 bestselling author of Damned Nations: Greed, Guns, Armies and Aid, comes a sharp and incisive exploration of the geopolitical forces shaping women's lives throughout the world, and what this means for the future of feminism. The first two decades of the 21st century were on track to be better for women than any other period in human history. More women were entering politics. There were more women running countries and companies than ever before. The gender wage gap was shrinking. A woman very nearly became President of the United States. The #MeToo movement challenged the secrecy and complacency surrounding sexual abuse and harassment, putting entire industries on notice. If feminism had a victory lap, this should have been it. Yet just as woman seemed to be entering this new, postfeminist world, the forces mobilizing against them grew stronger and louder. A man accused of sexually harassing almost two dozen women became President. Another man accused of sexual misconduct was appointed, much like Clarence Thomas more than two decades before him, to the Supreme Court. Men's rights groups were not only expanding but entering the mainstream, blaming women and feminism for their declining opportunities. Elsewhere in the world, one of the most brutally misogynistic movements in modern history, Daesh (ISIS), was building out its network from the Middle East to Africa and South Asia. The Taliban entered into negotiations with the United States as part of a power-sharing "peace deal" in Afghanistan. In North America, the Incel (involuntary celibate) movement is linked to attacks on civilians in high schools, college campuses, businesses and city streets. Mixing razor-sharp analysis with personal anecdotes, Sam lays out the connections between these shifting events and what they mean for the future of women and girls. With a career spanning more than two decades working in some of the most war-ravaged regions of the world, she addresses the tough questions about the imperfect progress of feminism and the ongoing, devastating backlash against women's equality. A highly engaging, evocative and entertaining story-teller, Sam explores what it means to be a woman in the world right now--the contradictions and frustrations--and how women can lead through these challenges. Headstrong is a poignant, honest and insightful look at women that bridges the personal with the political, touching on the local and global dimensions of feminism. Navigating a sphere often dominated by men (war), Sam has emerged as one of the most engaging and intrepid voices in the geopolitical arena, offering both a timely and critical take on modern events.

READING: How would you feel, as a guest, about sitting in a suburban living room that is for women only? What if you wanted a baby but as a single woman could not have one outside of a marriage? Could you stay home to mourn a husband for four months and ten days? Headstrong Daughters takes us inside the lives of Muslim women in Australia today. They are working professionals, mothers, and students. At home they are finding ways to stay true to their faith as well as to themselves, navigating the expectations of their families and the traditions they brought with them to their new country. But things are not always what they seem. These candid, moving and sometimes surprising stories reveal a side to Australian life that is little known and often misunderstood. Inspiring, warm and determined, these women are the new face of Islam in Australia. 'A thoughtful, honest, and compelling window into a community so often assumed about, but rarely engaged with. I finished it in a single sitting.' Susan Carland, author of Fighting Hislam 'Jamal's neutral, yet gently perceptive style allows the stories of her women to shine through, illuminating the myriad points of intersection with Islam in ordinary life.

READING: From the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and author of the bestselling The Bulletproof Diet comes a revolutionary plan to upgrade your brainpower—in two weeks or less. For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with world-renowned doctors and scientists to uncover the latest, most innovative methods for making humans perform better—a process known as "biohacking." In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, he shared his biohacking tips for taking control of your own biology. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows readers how to biohack their way to a sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brain. Imagine feeling like your mind is operating at its clearest and sharpest, and being able—possibly for the first time in your life—to do more in less time? What it suddenly became easier to do the very hardest things you do? Or if you could feel 100% confident about your intellect, and never again fear being the person in the room who just isn’t smart enough, or can’t remember something important? How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear? In Head Strong, Asprey shows us that all of this is possible—and more. Using his simple lifestyle modifications (or "hacks") to take advantage of how the structure of your brain works, readers will learn how to take their mental performance to the next level. Combining the latest findings in neuroscience and neurobiology with a hacker-inspired "get it done now" perspective, Asprey offers a program structured around key areas of brain performance that will help you: Power the brain with exactly what it needs to perform at its best all day long Eliminate the sources of "kryptonite," both nutritional and environmental, that make the brain slower. Supercharge the cellular powerhouses of our brains, the mitochondria, to eliminate cravings and turn up mental focus. Reverse inflammation to perform better right now, then stay sharp and energized well into your golden years. Promote neuron growth to enhance processing speed and reinforce new learning—hotwiring your brain for success. Asprey’s easy to follow, two-week program offers a detailed plan to supercharge brain performance, including: which foods to eat and which ones to avoid, how to incorporate the right kinds of physical activity into your day, a detox protocol for your home and body; meditation and breathing for performance, recommended brain-boosting supplements; and how to adjust the lighting in your home and work space to give your brain the quality light it thrives on. A better brain—and a happier, easier, more productive life—is within reach. You just need to get Head Strong.
