2. Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change and Thrive in Work and Life

By Susan David

4. The Code of the Extraordinary Mind: 10 Unconventional Laws to Redefine Your Life and Succeed on Your Own Terms

By Vishen Lakhiani

October's book recommendationsThe Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit.
