Review: Little Victories: Perfect Rules for Imperfect Living

Little Victories: Perfect Rules for Imperfect Living by Jason Gay My rating: 4 of 5 stars Jason is a funny guy and this is a funny book--from a WSJ sports writer! Go figure. In Little Victories, Jason, a fortyish, regular guy reflects on his life in a collection of essays on different mundane topics. There's no venom here, or slapstick—it’s all Seinfeld-like humor about everyday stuff like being cool (or

Review: The Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Fourth Industrial Revolution by Klaus Schwab My rating: 4 of 5 stars The technological revolution before us promises to bring change and disruption on a scale and scope never experienced before. Schwab outlines the drivers and impacts of the revolution on our economy, business, society and international landscape. Additionally, and perhaps my favorite part of the book, is the Appendix which includes a summary of the transformational shifts expected,

Review: Bees: A Honeyed History

Bees: A Honeyed History by Piotr Socha My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow. It's been a long time since I've been blown away by a beauty like Bees: A Honeyed History. When I came upon the book at BN, I was breathless. Its massive size, gorgeous, vibrant illustrations and content that celebrates our helpful little friends are pure delight. I couldn't help but pick it up! In fact, I

Review: I Really Like Slop!

I Really Like Slop! by Mo Willems My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the ultimate story about friendship, and the lengths we go to for our very best friend--even if it means eating slop! I've read this story just once but my smile lingers. I Really Like Slop is about as cute as stories come. Wonderful humor. Endearing characters. Classic friendship. It's a perfect read aloud for silly

Review: Million Dollar Women

Million Dollar Women by Julia Pimsleur My rating: 4 of 5 stars I found this book exceptionally insightful and useful. At its core, Julia Pimsleur, shows budding female entrepreneurs who perceive themselves as "Creative Professionals" to develop into "Business Professionals" because that's what's required to build a $1M + business. Building a big business means attracting investors--friends and family, angels, and VCs. And attracting investors means financial savvy, polished pitches,

Review: Good Is the New Cool: Market Like You Give a Damn

Good Is the New Cool: Market Like You Give a Damn by Afdhel Aziz My rating: 4 of 5 stars The authors, Afdhel Aziz and Bobby Jones, are a couple of soulful guys who have written a soulful book that makes a strong case for soulful corporations. And there's a good reason why: our nation's resources are heavily concentrated in the hands of corporations: TOTAL REVENUE BY STAKEHOLDER, U.S.: -

Review: The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph

The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph by Ryan Holiday My rating: 5 of 5 stars Although everyone can benefit from applying the precepts of stoicism to weather the turbulent waters of life, this book will profoundly impact entrepreneurs, trailblazers, leaders of change and transformation or anyone who has chosen to move outside of their comfort zone to take on a monumental task or

Review: Pug Man’s 3 Wishes

Pug Man's 3 Wishes by Sebastian Meschenmoser My rating: 4 of 5 stars I'd hesitate to share this book with a little one. Pug Man's 3 Wishes is snarky, cynical, odd, and wonderfully irreverent. It is the perfect gift for the lovable "big kid" curmudgeon in your life. I laughed out loud at the Pug Man illustrations—the sour face, crepey skin, "grandpa" bathrobe and hopeless attitude are classic and capture

Review: The Littlest Family’s Big Day

The Littlest Family's Big Day by Emily Winfield Martin My rating: 4 of 5 stars Let's cut to the chase: the illustrations in this book are so precious, so charming, and so incredibly delightful they deserve a much larger canvas. Emily, please launch a line of baby nursery/kids room decor--bedding, wallpaper/decals, accessories--the works. Little ones (and big ones) everywhere will thank you. #EmilyWinfieldMartin #WakeUpToJoy View all my reviews

Review: Motor Miles

Motor Miles by John Burningham My rating: 4 of 5 stars Just the THOUGHT of a car-driving dog is smile-worthy. What child (or adult, for that matter) wouldn't love to be dropped off at school (work) with their beloved pet behind the wheel for all to see? And a road trip to the seaside, a journey through the leaves in the autumn, and a drive out to play in the
