Grit by Angela Duckworth

This breakaway bestseller is flying off the shelf, so there’s a high probability you may have already received this book as a holiday gift. Angela Duckworth is dethroning the idea that possessing intelligence and talent is the foundation for success. Instead, it’s this idea of “grit” that’s the secret to getting what you want.

The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
