There’s just something about the onset of fall that makes us want to cuddle up in our favorite sweater with an inspirational book. This season, we are revisiting some of our trusty favorites—filled with truisms that shape our thinking about who we are, who we can become, and living life with greater purpose. We’re also excited about a few recent releases that have been added to the list! Here some of our favorite books to read this fall.
by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D.
This book has been life-changing for many CAbi Girls with its groundbreaking revelation of how two mindsets largely hold the key to our success and development. Dweck challenges our perspective on work, parenting, and relationships—and propels us to take new action toward greater success.
by Simon Sinek
Centered on a belief that everyone can have a vocation they love, Sinek promises that defining one’s “WHY” will not only lead to a life of passion, but is what will enable anyone to be an effective leader.
by Simon Sinek
Rooted in biology and stories of both effective and failing communities and companies, Sinek reveals simple truths about human nature that can and should change the way we lead and interact. This book reveals the supreme importance of living generously in community.
4. DARING GREATLY: HOW THE COURAGE TO BE VULNERABLE TRANSFORMS THE WAY WE LIVE, LOVE, PARENT, AND LEAD
by Brené Brown
After years of studying human relationships, Brown discovered what enables people to develop meaningful bonds with each other: the scary, courageous act of vulnerability. What we’ve been conditioned to see as weakness is actually one of our greatest relational strengths.
by Benjamin Zander and Rosamund Stone Zander
Combining the lifelong learning of a conductor and therapist, this book shakes up commonly held paradigms and replaces them with new notions that leave one seeing new, fresh possibilities in every arena of life.
by Seth Godin
This short, 32-page e-book holds 30 inspirational ideas for living unconventionally as the rare, graceful person who makes a huge difference in lives and organizations.
by Benedict Carey
Most of us have developed habits over many years that enable us to absorb information but we turn around and loose it quickly. Defying how we’ve been trained to learn, Carey reveals how the brain can best absorb and retain information so we can use our brains to our maximum advantage.
by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton
We are excited to dive into this newly released conversation-style ode to women of all nationalities and our universal love of clothes. With stories from hundreds of women who share how their personal style has evolved, it is clear that clothes are far more than a basic necessity, but rather a gateway to transformation and defining self-expression (which of course is something we all know through The CAbi Experience!).
