An interesting and enjoyable read. I was hoping for more depth into the science behind why we are storytelling animals.

Michelle Obama provides a view of politics from the perspective of a working mum. I loved hearing about her story, career, passions, purpose, and her journey as a busy and multi-passionate woman. She provides an honest reflection of her time in the Whitehouse and provides insights into the challenges women STILL face in the public eye. Well done Michelle.

Thank goodness for Barefoot

What a refreshing finance book! I’ve read countless finance books and found myself paralysed because of all the information. The finance system can be so overwhelming. Scott lays it down in simple steps. Do this, then this, then this. Specific advice and actions to take. So good. I’ve already set up my buckets and written a financial plan. I’ve paid off two credit cards and I’m on my way to be debt free. Yay!! Thanks Scott - ps: if you aren’t Australian get an Aussie lingo translator lol

Tara writes about her own experiences and provides data, evidence and case studies demonstrating that feminism is still relevant and in fact necessary. As a proud feminists myself it was great to here her edify the ideology in such a robust and positive way. Brilliant read for anyone who wants to know why women are still asking for equality.

A strong and honest account of women's experience of the world. Wouldn't it be great if more people were having this honest conversation without the burden of feeling apologetic or shame.

It's Alan Watts, what more do I need to say. Going on philosophical walks with him always stretches my thinking.

Of Russell Brand and the Dahlia Lama had a love child, this would be his story. Hilarious account of monetary life. Lifting the romantic veil that many of us have of what it is to be Zen. Shozan demonstrates a real and raw account of his struggle in Zen town. Good read.

Tales of success, mingled with the failures that led them there, Jack eloquently tells the stories of some of the greats of our time. The way he weaves these stories together, although so so vastly different, to show the similarities to each other and to you and me is a work of genius. You can tell this book was a labour of love. And that last line of the book immediately made me cry. I've recently found my calling after years of searching so now it won't remain unwritten. Thanks Jack.

I found this book accidentally one day. I think the word warrior stood out. I'm not sure why I read it but I'm so glad I found Glennon. Her story of struggle is told with such fierceness and humour that it's impossible not to like her. Her admissions of living not at all like a 'normal' mom or person is so warming and supporting. I loved this book. I loved the humour and I loved the anger and I loved the gentleness. I'm not a person that prescribes to a religion and I don't talk with God, however I found her reflections of conversation not unlike the ones I have with my self or the universe. Beautifully written. And I love it when the book is read by the author. It's so much easier to connect with them. Thanks Glennon, can't wait for the next one!

I can't tell you how much this book has influenced and inspired me to be a better leader and help others create an amazing workplace. Great advice coupled with stories of some of my favourite films, what more could I ask for.
