Red Notice, by Bill Browder is a gripping true account of an American financier living in Russia who systematically exposes Russian government corruption in the financial markets. Mr. Bower's actions cost him dearly when his trusted attorney was arrested, tortured and died in a Russian prison. Following that horrific experience, Mr. Browder was transformed from manager of a multi billion dollar investment fund to a human rights activist. A very interesting read into the world of Putin and the Russian government.
I love this book so much I bought it for myself. Gretchen challenges habits. How to keep them, how to start them, and why it can be so easy to fall out of an important habit. She uses her own story to connect the reader to who they are. The first two chapters gave me so much insight into myself and what systems work well for me. As I said, I bought this book so that I could continue to reference it and write notes within its pages. If you are looking into being the best You in any way, check out "Better than Before". Gretchen supports you along the way. My family has also started reading and listening to the audiobook on my recommendation. Enjoy!
This book is fascinating! It tells the story of the heist of priceless specimens from the British Natural History Museum by a young man obsessed with collecting beautiful - and rare - feathers. The Feather Thief is as much about the history of science as it is a heist book, and wholeheartedly recommend to anyone interested in either topic!
This story chronicles the breaking of claims of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein and a multitude of other important media figures, and the lengths they go to in order to discredit them. This book is infuriating, and truly makes you appreciate the rigors of investigative journalism.

What a wonderful treat to read this book- I completely devoured it! Gottlieb’s perspective is something that each reader will be able to identify with in a different way. I want to read it again, as I’m sure I’ll take away something totally different the next time!
