ThisNakedMindThis Naked Mind by Annie Grace

Recommended by:
Nick Cortezi, Chief Executive Officer 

"This book, without scare tactics, pain or rules, gives you freedom from alcohol. By addressing causes rather than symptoms it is a permanent solution rather than lifetime struggle. It removes the psychological dependence allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). Annie’s clarity, humor and unique ability to blend original research with riveting storytelling ensures you will thoroughly enjoy the process."


Shut Up and Run by Robin Arzon

Recommended by:
Abby Daugherty, Vice President

"Running isn’t just an activity, it’s a lifestyle that connects runners with the world around them, whether they’re pounding the pavement of crowded big city streets or traversing trails through quiet woods and fields. Reflecting the excitement, color, and focus of the running experience, Shut Up and Run offers tips, tricks, and visual motivation to help every runner cultivate miles of sweat, laughter, swagger, and friendship."

EducatedEducated: A Memoir by Tara Westover

Recommended by:
Hollie Degutis, Assistant Vice President - Corporate Marketing

"Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home."


Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat for Diabetes by Michelle May, MD

Recommended by:
Bethany Dietz, Receptionist

"This is a helpful tool to re-frame the thought process, not just around managing diabetes but diet in general.  It talks about approaching what you eat with mindfulness or intuitive eating versus overeating or restricting.  It helped me approach diet and managing my diabetes with a lot less anxiety and provided me with the tools to use a more natural approach."

TheWomanintheWindowThe Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn

Recommended by:
Stefanie Kurek, Processing Associate - Cancels

"Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times... and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare."
