Between Two Kingdoms by Suleika Jaouad
A Memoir of a Life Interrupted // In the summer after graduating from college, Suleika Jaouad was preparing, as they say in commencement speeches, to enter “the real world”.

On the Ho Chi Minh Trail by Sherry Buchanan
The Blood Road, the Women Who Defended It, the Legacy // Part travelogue, part history, and part reflective meditation on conflict and reconciliation, Sherry Buchanan’s new book offers both a personal and historical exploration of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, highlighting the critical role women militia and soldiers played in defending the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War.
Group by Christie Tate
How One Therapist and a Circle of Strangers Saved My Life // The refreshingly original debut memoir of a guarded, over-achieving, self-lacerating young lawyer who reluctantly agrees to get psychologically and emotionally naked in a room of six complete strangers—her psychotherapy group—and in turn finds human connection, and herself. Nine words that can change everything: “You don’t need a cure, you need a witness.”

The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know // Why do we refresh our wardrobes every year, renovate our kitchens every decade, but never update our beliefs and our views? Why do we laugh at people using computers that are ten years old, but yet still cling to opinions we formed ten years ago? In the end, learning to rethink may be the secret skill to give you the edge in a world changing faster than ever.
