I'm curious to discover some great books to challenge my thinking and change my perspective. Any good ones you have read or heard of lately? BTW - I'm reading "Working Hard, Hardly Working" and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to achieve more and feels fulfilled.

Style and Trends is about fashion.
I'd say "The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins is a pretty challenging read.

I highly recommend Make Time to anyone who wants to rethink their day-2-day routines, be less reactive, and make time for what's really important. Reading it currently for the 2nd time :)

A few I've read / are on my to read list. I'm taking the definition of "challenge your thinking" quite broadly, I hope you'll find something interesting :) - Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World - The power of habit - Talking to strangers - Educated: a memoir - Stop reading the news - Bullsh*t jobs (I read it first as an employee, and I keep it top of mind now as an entrepreneur:) - Why I'm no longer talking to white people about race - Me and white supremacy - Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century - Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive And then a fiction book which in covid times I found much closer to a non-fiction: Blindness by Saramago.

Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It might be interesting to you. I wrote a review with some of the lessons https://nts.strzibny.name/learni... The main things to understand is that compromise is bad and your best leverage is knowing the unknowns.
