Sarah's Pick: Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker
Sarah Jordan is the Founder and CEO of Y.O.U. Underwear. She says: "Why We Sleep changed my life. I got loads of copies and sent them to my friends, saying you have to read this because literally the best thing you can do for yourself is to get enough sleep. And, as a small business owner, I do not really follow the principles but I try and know I need to. It just has a fundamental impact on every area of your life and body."

Lisa's Pick: Finding Your Own North Star by Martha Beck
Finding Your Own North Star will teach you how to read your internal compasses, articulate your core desires, identify and repair the unconscious beliefs that may be blocking your progress, nurture your intuition, and cultivate your dreams from the first magical flicker of an idea through the planning and implementation of a more satisfying life.
Lisa Cooper is the CEO and Founder of Figure 8 Investment Strategies. She says: "It’s a book full of exercises for if you’re figuring out what you want to be when you grow up or making your next great career move.

Samantha's Pick: All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the stunningly beautiful instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.
Samantha is the Organizational Development Specialist at Our Gorongosa. She says: "All the Light We Cannot See is written from the perspective of two people whose paths will eventually cross. Getting to journey through their lives as they weave closer and closer together kept me completely engaged. I became more and more invested in their story with each chapter. Even though it is set during World War 2, it felt more like a story about people, than that time. Anthony Doerr's writing created such a strong image in my mind, that I felt like I was walking through the world of these characters.”
