The New Radicals
Around the world, thousands of people who've found success in their chosen careers are getting the call to do something more with their lives--to give something back to a world in desperate need of their help. And you don't have to be a billionaire to do so. Bestselling author Julia Moulden, a consultant who counsels clients in search of more meaningful career paths, helps you determine if you are ready to take the next step, and offers her expert guidance on how to make the transition into your new life.

Good Calories Bad Calories
In this groundbreaking book, the result of seven years of research in every science connected with the impact of nutrition on health, award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong. For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet with more and more people acting on this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. There are good calories, and bad ones.
