Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You
Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You
Jason Reynolds,Ibram X. Kendi Self-Development
The #1 New York Times bestseller and a USAToday bestseller! A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism--and antiracism--in America This is NOT a history book. This is a book about the here and now. A book to help us better understand why we are where we are. A book about race. The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited. Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.

The Tao of Influence
Karen McGregor Business&Careers
A Unique Leadership Book Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence stands apart as a business book. It speaks ancient wisdom to the modern-day leader, while providing practical and tangible actions that lead to high levels of sustainable influence. The book is an easy-to-follow roadmap to creating lasting change in your workplace, community and family, while navigating chaotic and demanding environments. Make an impact and positively influence others to create much needed change. As the “old world” influence of manipulation, hidden agendas, control and greed crumble, people are seeking a replacement. They want to be part of the solution. Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence is this replacement: it fills the gap between old and new world influence through the teachings and application of the Tao Te Ching, a 4000-year-old wisdom book written by Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu. The greatest power is in understanding the use of power. Karen McGregor is an international keynote speaker, TEDx speaker, and a guide to thousands of entrepreneurs and professionals seeking to become more influential leaders. In the Tao Te Ching, the Tao represents masculine creation and Te represents feminine nurturing. Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence speaks to both the feminine and masculine within, using words and concepts that are in keeping with the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching, and that don’t rely on having to force, beat or defeat anything. Each chapter begins with a quote from the Tao Te Ching that connects with that chapter’s theme. Then concludes with reflections and recommended action. Learn how to: Handle challenges, including difficult people End the dynamic that heightens power struggles and destroys influence Create stillness and space to generate more presence and authentic power If you have read books such as Weconomy , Leaders Eat Last , or Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth , you will want to read and learn from Karen McGregor’s Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence .
