Books can sometimes be the perfect inspiration boost to get us rejuvenated and back on the path to living healthier, fuller lives. Here are 5 great books that provide just that:
1. David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell
Malcolm Gladwell draws on the biblical story of David and Goliath in order to challenge what we see as obstacles and disadvantages. He then incorporates relevant stories from today, which bring insight into how today’s underdogs can ultimately overcome their struggles and find success. As women in the workplace, society tends to assign us the role of underdog. However, with the help of Gladwell, we can look at our situations from a new perspective and find the strength to take on our own giants.
