#GIRLBOSS
by Sophia Amoruso
The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion--it was a stolen book. At twenty-two she had resigned herself to working a mediocre day job. It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer. Filled with brazen wake-up calls and frank observations, #GIRLBOSS proves that success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break. As Sophia writes, "I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Don't ever grow up. Don't become a bore. Don't let The Man get to you."

CHILDRENS CRUSADE
by Ann Packer
Bill Blair finds the land by accident, three wooded acres in a rustic community south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley. Struck by a vision of the family he has yet to create, Bill buys the property on a whim. In Penny Greenway he finds a suitable wife. Yet Penny is a mercurial housewife, at a time when women chafed at the conventions imposed on them. Thirty years later, the three oldest Blair children, adults now and still living near the family home, are disrupted by the return of the youngest, whose sudden presence and all-too-familiar troubles force a reckoning with who they are, separately and together, and set off a struggle over the family's future.

CROSSROADS OF SHOULD & MUST
by Elle Luna
Who hasn't asked the question "How can I find and follow my true calling?" Elle Luna frames this moment as "standing at the crossroads of Should and Must." "Should" is what we feel we ought to be doing, or what is expected of us. "Must" is the thing we dream of doing, our heart's desire. It explains the importance of mistakes, of "unlearning," of solitude, of keeping moving, of following a soul path. The Crossroads of Should and Must guides us from the small moment, discovering our Must, to the big moment--actually doing something about it, and returning to share our new gifts with the world.

DON'T HURT PEOPLE & DON'T TAKE THEIR STUFF
by Matt Kibbe
Don't hurt people, and don't take their stuff. Simple and straightforward, that's liberty in a nutshell. And yet it seems that, more and more, the decisions CEOs and Washington bureaucrats make about what to do for us, or to us, or even against us, are having an increasingly adverse impact on our lives and freedoms. Don't Take Their Stuff is the first true manifesto of a new libertarian grassroots movement, in which Kibbe clearly articulates the case for freer people, more voluntary cooperation, and solving problems from the bottom up.

HERETIC
by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
For centuries it has seemed as if Islam is immune to change. But Hirsi Ali has come to believe that a Muslim Reformation--a revision of Islamic doctrine aimed at reconciling the religion with modernity--is now at hand, and may even have begun. Interweaving her own experiences, historical analogies and powerful examples from contemporary Muslim societies and cultures, Heretic is not a call to arms, but a passionate plea for peaceful change and a new era of global toleration.
