Vivian’s Answer

Hi Brenna,


This is a tough question. Looking back, each book that had a significant impact in my life, had something to do with what I was going through at that time. Not all the bookswill apply to you, but here is my list:

  1. The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
  2. Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
  3. Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
  4. Emotional Design by Don Norman
  5. The Marshmallow Test by <span style="color: rgb(119, 119, 119);">Walter Mischel</span>
  6. The Bible (NIV)

Side note: I read a lot more non-fiction than fiction. I love reading about other people's lives and what they did or how to learn from them. Hope this helps.


Dream big, Vivian

Thank you comment icon Thanks! I'll add them all to my list!! Brenna

Reya’s Answer

I recently read 'Many lives, many masters' by Dr. Brian Weiss. I think 'view-altering' and 'mind-stretching' would definitely be the best way to describe this book. Do give it a read, if possible!

Pat’s Answer

The books I cherish are timeless classics, so I'll keep my response brief yet impactful.

Firstly, 'Markings' by Dag Hammarskjöld, a book that is effortlessly simple to read, yet brimming with profound ideas.

The other two books that hold a special place in my heart might seem like they're tailored for youngsters, but they're teeming with philosophical wisdom that I'm absolutely captivated by.

These books are 'The Velveteen Rabbit' and 'The Little Prince'.

Pat recommends the following next steps:

Mindset by Carol Dweck is a fantastic book focused on how to have a growth mindset vs a closed mindset. It helps understand how to be open to new ideas, feedback, coaching and differing opinions. Highly recommend it to improve communication skills as well.
