<b><b>Instant #1 </b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> Bestseller & </b><b><i>Wall Street Journal</i></b><b> Bestseller</b><br /><br /><b>In </b><b><i>The Obstacle Is the Way</i></b><b> and </b><b><i>Ego Is the Enemy</i></b><b>, bestselling author Ryan Holiday made ancient wisdom wildly popular with a new generation of leaders in sports, politics, and technology. In his new book, </b><b><i>Stillness Is the Key</i></b><b>, Holiday draws on timeless Stoic and Buddhist philosophy to show why slowing down is the secret weapon for those charging ahead.</b></b><br /><br />All great leaders, thinkers, artists, athletes, and visionaries share one indelible quality. It enables them to conquer their tempers. To avoid distraction and discover great insights. To achieve happiness and do the right thing. Ryan Holiday calls it stillness--to be steady while the world spins around you. <br /><br />In this book, he outlines a path for achieving this ancient, but urgently necessary way of living. Drawing on a wide range of history's greatest thinkers, from Confucius to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius to Thich Nhat Hanh, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, he argues that stillness is not mere inactivity, but the doorway to self-mastery, discipline, and focus.<br /><br />Holiday also examines figures who exemplified the power of stillness: baseball player Sadaharu Oh, whose study of Zen made him the greatest home run hitter of all time; Winston Churchill, who in balancing his busy public life with time spent laying bricks and painting at his Chartwell estate managed to save the world from annihilation in the process; Fred Rogers, who taught generations of children to see what was invisible to the eye; Anne Frank, whose journaling and love of nature guided her through unimaginable adversity. <br /><br />More than ever, people are overwhelmed. They face obstacles and egos and competition. <i>Stillness Is the Key </i>offers a simple but inspiring antidote to the stress of 24/7 news and social media. The stillness that we all seek is the path to meaning, contentment, and excellence in a world that needs more of it than ever.

Later, as you're about to get back to work, a colleague taps you on the shoulder to chat. At home, screens get in the way of quality time with your family. Another day goes by, and once again, your most important personal and professional goals are put on hold.<br /><br />What would be possible if you followed through on your best intentions?

<b>A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK<br /><br />"A hands-on, real talk guide for navigating the hot-button issues that so many families struggle with."--Reese Witherspoon <br /><br />A revolutionary, real-world solution to the problem of unpaid, invisible work that women have shouldered for too long.</b><br /><br />It started with the Sh*t I Do List. Tired of being the "shefault" parent responsible for all aspects of her busy household, Eve Rodsky counted up all the unpaid, invisible work she was doing for her family -- and then sent that list to her husband, asking for things to change. His response was... underwhelming. Rodsky realized that simply identifying the issue of unequal labor on the home front wasn't enough: She needed a <i>solution</i> to this universal problem. Her sanity, identity, career, and marriage depended on it. <br /><br />The result is Fair Play: a time- and anxiety-saving system that offers couples a completely new way to divvy up domestic responsibilities. Rodsky interviewed more than five hundred men and women from all walks of life to figure out what the invisible work in a family actually entails and how to get it all done efficiently. With four easy-to-follow rules, 100 household tasks, and a figurative card game you play with your partner, <i>Fair Play </i>helps you prioritize what's important to your family and who should take the lead on every chore from laundry to homework to dinner. <br /><br />"Winning" this game means rebalancing your home life, reigniting your relationship with your significant other, and reclaiming your Unicorn Space -- as in, the time to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting. Are you ready to try Fair Play? Let's deal you in.

<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淪ignificant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.鈥?鈥?lt;i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <br /> <b>Ray Dalio, one of the world鈥檚 most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he鈥檚 developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business鈥攁nd which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><br /><br />In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine鈥檚 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater鈥檚 exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as 鈥渁n idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.鈥?It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio鈥攚ho grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood鈥攖hat he believes are the reason behind his success.<br /> <br /> In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he鈥檚 learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book鈥檚 hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of 鈥渞adical truth鈥?and 鈥渞adical transparency,鈥?include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating 鈥渂aseball cards鈥?for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they鈥檙e seeking to achieve.<br /> <br />Here, from a man who has been called both 鈥渢he Steve Jobs of investing鈥?and 鈥渢he philosopher king of the financial universe鈥?(<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you鈥檒l find in the conventional business press.

<b><b>The #1聽<i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller.聽</b>1 million copies sold!<br /><br /><b>Don鈥檛 miss the hourlong Netflix special聽<i>Bren茅 Brown: The Call to Courage</i>!</b><br /><br />From thought leader Bren茅 Brown, a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate that teaches us the power of vulnerability.</b><br />聽<br /> <i>鈥淚t is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while <b>daring greatly.</b>鈥濃€?lt;/i>Theodore Roosevelt<br /><br />Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on twelve years of pioneering research, Bren茅 Brown聽PhD, LMSW, dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.<br /><br />Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, <i>and</i> the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity. She writes: 鈥淲hen we shut ourselves off from vulnerability, we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.鈥?lt;br /><br /> <i>Daring Greatly</i> is not about winning or losing. It鈥檚 about courage. In a world where 鈥渘ever enough鈥?dominates and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It鈥檚 even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there鈥檚 a far greater risk of getting criticized or feeling hurt. But when we step back and examine our lives, we will find that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous, and hurtful as standing on the outside of our lives looking in and wondering what it would be like if we had the courage to step into the arena鈥攚hether it鈥檚 a new relationship, an important meeting, the creative process, or a difficult family conversation. <i>Daring Greatly</i> is a practice and a powerful new vision for letting ourselves be seen.
