This week's nonfiction ebooks share a common and comforting thread: de-stressing, de-cluttering and reinvention. For that co-worker whose desk is overflowing, hand him/her a copy of Marie Kondo's Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life to pull them back on track. For that frazzled friend who can't ever focus, perhaps you might recommend Burnout: the Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle. If you know someone who needs help in the communication department, check out Surrounded by Idiots to master those sticky work situations.
Did you happen to catch Fareed Zakaria's recent NPR interview on his new book, Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World? Just hearing it makes the world appear decidedly better and maybe, a little brighter too. But wait, the cherry topping this week's satisfying list has to be Reed Hastings' No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention. Talk about a revolution in the entertainment industry. We can't wait to learn more about the online DVD rental service that defied tradition and built a culture focused on freedom and responsibility. Wow -- the universe is full of possibilities!
