Work Stronger: Habits for More Energy, Less Stress, and Higher Performance at Work

AMAZON BESTSELLER
Don’t work longer. Work stronger.
As author Pete Leibman demonstrates in this eye-opening book, stronger hours (not longer hours) are the key to achieving and sustaining higher performance.

Work Stronger provides a step-by-step, science-based approach for increasing your energy, decreasing your stress, and taking your performance to a higher level.
You’ll learn how to form stronger habits in four key areas that impact how you feel and perform each day: mental focus and time management, sleep and mindfulness, exercise, and nutrition.
This book also features practical tips and powerful insights from private interviews that Leibman conducted with more than twenty-five prominent leaders. The group includes Chip Bergh, the president and CEO of Levi Strauss & Co., Dick Costolo, the former CEO of Twitter, and Janine Allis, an investor on Shark Tank.

You can also visit WorkStronger.com for three free bonuses that are included with the book (a free habits assessment, a free Work Stronger Workbook, and a free training series on how to get even better results).

Ditch Your Inner Critic At Work: Evidence-Based Strategies To Thrive In Your Career

Stop allowing critics to rent space in your head!

Are you looking for more in your career than a paycheck? What does it take to find job satisfaction? So many of us are feeling stressed out, taken for granted, and unhappy at work: the constant pressure, the reorganizations, the politics—do you feel as though you have nothing left to give? Whether you feel a mild dissatisfaction or an intense dislike for your current job, the goal is clear: to find your passion. But to find the right career, you have to let go of the critical inner voice that tells you that you’ll be happier if you make more money, work harder or reach the next promotion. At some point, you’ll need to rethink your assumptions about your career and take a new approach.

Should we even expect to be fulfilled and happy at work?

Yes, we should, says author Susan Peppercorn. In her new transformative book, Ditch Your Inner Critic at Work. Evidenced-Based Strategies to Thrive in Your Career, she makes the most compelling case yet that career satisfaction―and the full engagement that comes with it―is more important than ever in today’s workplace. Susan brings you a step-by-step guide to help you develop the tools and resources you need to bring more happiness and satisfaction to your work; in your current job or a new one. Through personal experience, client case studies, research on happiness and motivation, self-assessment tools, and exercises, she shows you how to create a realistic career vision, set goals, and line up the right resources to take control of your career and happiness.

Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking

Now a Netflix series!

New York Times Bestseller and Winner of the 2018 James Beard Award for Best General Cookbook and multiple ICAP Cookbook Awards

Named one of the Best Books of 2017 by: NPR, BuzzFeed, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Rachel Ray Every Day, San Francisco Chronicle, Vice Munchies, Elle.com, Glamour, Eater, Newsday, Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Seattle Times, Tampa Bay Times, Tasting Table, Modern Farmer, Publishers Weekly, and more.

A visionary new master class in cooking that distills decades of professional experience into just four simple elements, from the woman declared “America’s next great cooking teacher” by Alice Waters.

In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy. Master the use of just four elements—Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food—and anything you cook will be delicious. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time.

Echoing Samin’s own journey from culinary novice to award-winning chef, Salt, Fat Acid, Heat immediately bridges the gap between home and professional kitchens. With charming narrative, illustrated walkthroughs, and a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes—and dozens of variations—to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs.

Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavor by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you’ll ever need.

With a foreword by Michael Pollan.

The rejected remain stranded on the outside, clinging to the same well-worn and ineffective tactics for college admissions.

Enough is enough. Breaking Into College is the underground playbook many have leveraged to pry open the entrance to America’s most selective colleges. You deserve the same opportunity.
