Build a Better World Reading List:  We are nearly half way through the 2017 Summer Reading Program.  These books are some of the best books on building a better world.  By the way, building a better world begins at home and spreads outward.

Disrupt Aging: a bold new path to living your best life at every age by Mary Jo Jenkins; People 50-plus today face distinct challenges and have different goals than people in their 30s and 40s. They’re at a different place in their lives and are motivated by different things. They see the world through a lens that is shaped by the ups and downs of life, by the wisdom gained from those experiences, and by the comfort that comes from having a better understanding of who they are as individuals and what they want from life. We are living decades longer than our grandparents-how will we spend those years? Disrupt Aging sets out to change the current conversation about what it means to get older. In it, Jenkins chronicles her own journey, as well as those of others who are making their mark as disrupters, to show readers how we can all be active, financially unburdened, and happy as we get older opportunities to live the best life. Our ability to live longer, healthier lives is one of mankind’s greatest accomplishments. It’s time we treat it as such, and this book will show readers how. “– Provided by publisher.

Better than before: mastering the habits of our everyday lives by Gretchen Craft Rubin; “Habits are the invisible architecture of our lives. Rubin provides an analytical and scientific framework from which to understand these habits–as well as change them for good. Infused with her compelling voice and funny stories, she illustrates the core principles of habit formation with dozens of strategies that she uses herself and tests out on others. Rubin provides tools to help readers better understand themselves, and presents a clear, practical menu of strategies so readers can take an individualized approach. She tackles each strategy herself and in doing so shows us the importance of knowing ourselves and our own habit tendencies. Armed with self-knowledge, we can pursue habits in ways that will truly work for us, not against us. Going to the gym can be as easy, effortless, and automatic as putting on a seatbelt. We can file expense reports, take time for fun, or pass up that piece of carrot cake without having to decide.”– Provided by publisher.

People Tools: 54 strategies for building relationships, creating joy, and embracing prosperity by Alan C. Fox; Getting along well with others is the real secret to success and happiness. In tens of thousands of classrooms we teach reading, writing, and arithmetic and yet we leave solutions to the universal problems of human relationships to be discovered, if at all, by trial and error. The trial is painful and the error is costly.  People Tools: 54 Strategies for Building Relationships, Creating Joy, and Embracing Prosperity, provides time-proven techniques that you can use to build a better, happier, more successful life.

Have a great week and read good books.
