A dual first-person memoir by the acclaimed Vietnamese-American novelist and her thoroughly American teenage daughter--exploring their complicated relationship and touching on war and past tragedy, culture clash and bullying, and growing up both as individuals and as a family. After more than forty years in the United States, Lan Cao still feels tentative about her place in her adoptive country, one which she came to as a thirteen-year old refugee.

The Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American DreamThe Hidden History of Monopolies: How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream
by Thom Hartmann

The monopolistic power of companies like Walmart, Amazon, Facebook, and Google distorts and corrupts the American economy—but Thom Hartmann, America's #1 progressive radio host, shows we've broken the control of behemoths like these before, and we can do it again.

The biggest problem facing America and the world right now is "bigness." Our industrial and economic sectors—from tech, retail, and media to agriculture, food, and more—are so big that they're beyond the control of citizens, consumers, or the government (in fact, they've captured the latter). Similarly, the billionaire class has gotten so big in terms of wealth that its members have easily corrupted our politics to direct more and more of the nation's wealth and resources to themselves.

Touching the Jaguar: Transforming Fear into Action to Change Your Life and the WorldTouching the Jaguar: Transforming Fear into Action to Change Your Life and the World
by John Perkins

New York Times bestselling author John Perkins tells the dramatic story of how his life was saved by an Amazon shaman who taught him to "touch the jaguar"—to transform his fears into positive action.

This all happened while Perkins was a Peace Corps volunteer. Then he became an "economic hit man" (EHM), convincing developing countries to build huge projects that put them perpetually in debt to the World Bank and other US-controlled institutions. Although he'd learned in business school that this was the best model for economic development, he came to understand it as a new form of colonialism. When he later returned to the Amazon, he saw the destructive impact of his work. But a much more profound experience emerged: Perkins was inspired by a previously uncontacted Amazon tribe that "touched its jaguar" by uniting with age-old enemies to defend its territory against invading oil and mining companies.

The 7 Secrets of Responsive Leadership: Drive Change, Manage Transitions, and Help Any Organization Turn AroundThe 7 Secrets of Responsive Leadership: Drive Change, Manage Transitions, and Help Any Organization Turn Around
by Jackie Jenkins-Scott

Leadership and turnaround expert Jackie Jenkins-Scott shows you how to spot and take advantage of opportunities in any environment.

Being a responsive leader means playing to win. Responsive leadership can thrive anywhere, unlike systematic leadership. The latter imposes methods and laws; principles govern action. In contrast, responsive leadership is a living, changing set of traits and skills that adapts to new people and environments. You may have an impressive grasp of how to influence, inspire, and build teams, but you must know how to adapt your abilities to each new organization, or to changes within the organization—new board members, new staff members, new shareholders.
