      HGTV cofounder Susan Packard launches the next chapter in emotional intelligence (EQ), and shows you how to increase your personal satisfaction and productivity—in work and life—via her three-step path toward EQ Fitness.
      Emotions can sink us, or they can power us like fuel to succeed. Many of us show up for work, and life, feeling lonely even in a room full of people, or bringing unproductive emotions into work, like anger or fear. You don’t have to feel this way. Susan Packard offers an accessible new guidebook to grow your emotional fitness, and it’s arrived just in time, as technology is quickly becoming our main interface for communication. No matter where you are in your career, success is an inside job. Packard lays out how to develop interdependent work relationships, and for leaders, how to build healthy company cultures.
      Packard introduces us to successful people, and companies, that are rich with ‘connector’ emotions like hope, empathy and trust-building. She tackles unconventional topics, like how workaholism keeps us emotionally adolescent, and how forgiveness belongs in the workplace too. Packard shares her EQ Fit-catalyzed success at HGTV and the stories of the executives she coaches in mindfulness and other emerging techniques, and she teaches an ‘inside out’ practice of self-discovery, which helps you uncover unproductive emotions, and dispel them.
      The best leaders balance power and grace, and everyone can effectively use resilience--an ability to endure tough situations and make tough decisions, and vulnerability, a willingness to open up, change, and admit when we need help. She offers new tools to bring our strongest emotional selves to work each day.
      Susan Packard is the cofounder of Scripps Networks Interactive and the former chief operating officer of HGTV, and its second employee. Under Packard's helm, HGTV became one of the fastest-growing cable networks in television history.

      Publishers Weekly bestseller · A joyful and accessible homeschool guide to making learning a part of everyday life

      Parents who are deeply invested in their children's education can be hard on themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childhood chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards?

      In this book, Julie Bogart distills decades of experience--homeschooling her five now grown children, developing curricula, and training homeschooling families around the world--to show parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they're in elementary or high school.

      Enchantment is about ease, not striving. Bogart shows parents how to make room for surprise, mystery, risk, and adventure in their family's routine, so they can create an environment that naturally moves learning forward. If a child wants to pick up a new hobby or explore a subject area that the parent knows little about, it's easy to simply say "no" to end the discussion and the parental discomfort, while dousing their child's curious spark. Bogart gently invites parents to model brave learning for their kids so they, too, can approach life with curiosity, joy, and the courage to take learning risks.
      Julie Bogart is the creator of the award-winning, innovative Brave Writer program, teaching writing and language arts to thousands of families each year. She's also the host of the popular podcast "A Brave Writer's Life in Brief." Bogart homeschooled her five now grown children for seventeen years and is the founder of The Homeschool Alliance, which supports homeschooling parents through coaching and teaching.

      “A masterpiece. This is the deepest, most meaningful book on parenting I have ever read. If you want to raise your child to be a happy learner, whether via homeschooling or conventional schooling, read this book.”
      —Barbara Oakley, author of Learning How to Learn and A Mind for Numbers

      “Julie Bogart’s everyday magic is her knack for combining galvanizing inspiration and hands-on practicality. Her writing is frank, funny, and full of charm. Her approach to homeschooling—and to parenting in general—emphasizes a spirit of adventure and camaraderie, placing relationship at the center of a family’s educational journey. This is the guidebook I wish I’d had when I was starting out.”
      —Melissa Wiley, author of Fox and Crow Are Not Friends 

      "Success in homeschooling is more about mindset than method, and relationship than academic minutiae. Julie Bogart unpacks what this looks like for her in powerful and practical ways that will inspire you to personalize your own homeschool journey."
      —Heather Haupt, author of Knights in Training

      "In The Brave Learner, Julie captures the essence of learning. Homeschooling is not about the schooling or even the home, but rather, it’s about people—their stories, hopes, needs, opportunities, communities, and future. The Brave Learner emphasizes this beautifully by moving between the vision and practice of homeschooling—not an easy transition to make. The book is a worthy read for any parent, whether they homeschool or not.”
      —Terry Heick, founder of TeachThought

      “Julie Bogart is tireless in providing ingenious and creative help for homeschoolers.”
      —Peter Elbow, Professor of English Emeritus, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

      “Breathes fresh life into your homeschool days."
      —Ainsley Arment, founder of Wild + Free

      "The Brave Learner is the book I would have adored as a young parent. Julie's wise advice, genuine humor, and refreshing honesty wrapped me in a spirit of hope and possibility. This is a joyful book brimming with generous, practical ideas about how to live and teach at any age. I only wish I had more children!
      Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, author of Forest Has a Song

      "Julie’s voice is personable, encouraging, informative, and reassuring. The Brave Learner is filled with inspirational and practical tips on helping children thrive whether you're a homeschooling parent or not."

      The never-before-told story of one extremely rare copy of the Gutenberg Bible, and its impact on the lives of the fanatical few who were lucky enough to own it.

      For rare-book collectors, an original copy of the Gutenberg Bible—of which there are fewer than 50 in existence—represents the ultimate prize. Here, Margaret Leslie Davis recounts five centuries in the life of one copy, from its creation by Johannes Gutenberg, through the hands of monks, an earl, the Worcestershire sauce king, and a nuclear physicist to its ultimate resting place, in a steel vault in Tokyo. Estelle Doheny, the first woman collector to add the book to her library and its last private owner, tipped the Bible onto a trajectory that forever changed our understanding of the first mechanically printed book.

      The Lost Gutenberg draws readers into this incredible saga, immersing them in the lust for beauty, prestige, and knowledge that this rarest of books sparked in its owners. Exploring books as objects of obsession across centuries, this is a must-read for history buffs, book collectors, seekers of hidden treasures, and anyone who has ever craved a remarkable book—and its untold stories.
      Margaret Leslie Davis is a graduate of Georgetown University and earned her master’s in professional writing at the University of Southern California. Her award-winning books have been featured on Good Morning America, and in the London Sunday Times and Vanity Fair. She has appeared on C-SPAN Book TV and the History Channel’s Modern Marvels as well as on the Discovery Channel and A&E’s Biography. An experienced and sought-after public speaker, she has delivered addresses at many prestigious forums, including the New York Public Library, the White House Historical Association, and the National Gallery of Art.

      “A lively tale of historical innovation, the thrill of the bibliophile’s hunt, greed and betrayal.”—The New York Times Book Review

      "The remarkable tale of 'Number 45,' one of the finest copies of the Gutenberg Bible in existence… Davis does a fine job telling a fascinating story that touches on the origin of books, the passion of collectors, the unseen world of rare-book dealers, and the lives of the super-rich, past and present. A great read for any book lover.”—Kirkus (starred review)

      “An addictive and engaging look at the ‘competitive, catty and slightly angst-ridden’ heart of the world of book collecting…. The Lost Gutenberg reads like a comedy of manners starring the cast of an Ayn Rand novel…. It’s improbable and riveting.”—Houston Chronicle

      “A gripping, well-researched account of the importance of books as cultural artifacts and of one particular work that transformed the world, as well as the lives of those who owned a copy, that will appeal especially to bibliophiles.”—Library Journal

      “The depth of Davis' research cannot be understated. The writing in this book is straightforward and, at times, even heartbreaking, but outstanding reporting lies at its core.... The Lost Gutenberg pulls readers into a five-century saga, plunging them into the minds of those who desired the Bible and the prestige that came with it. This makes it a book about not only Number 45 and its owners but also a narrative that explores our collective obsession with art, technology, change, and history.”—NPR

      "A fascinating read for anyone who cares about books."—Star Tribune

      "An entertaining and insightful human story of obsession."—Daily Telegraph

      "A thrilling page-turner."—Daily Mail

      The Lost Gutenberg has two protagonists: a singularly beautiful copy of the Gutenberg Bible—known as #45—and the California heiress who emerged from scandal to chase it. Along the way, Davis takes in the larger-than-life stories of the aristocrats, libertines, billionaires, and bibliomaniacs who all competed to own this unique piece of literary history. A fascinating exploration of the shifting value we place on rare books, and the shifting wealth and power of those who hunt them.”—Michael Blanding, New York Times bestselling author of The Map Thief: The Gripping Story of an Esteemed Rare-Map Dealer Who Made Millions Stealing Priceless Maps

      “Bibliophiles love books, and none more than the book collector’s dream of dreams, a Gutenberg Bible. Davis tells not just with skill but also with sympathy and even love. A richly informative but finally a deeply moving story.”—Jack Miles, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of God: A Biography

      “The great protagonist is the book itself, the beautifully preserved Gutenberg 45, its immortality assured through, of all things, a cyclotron scanning its pages, analyzing its ink and paper, as it entered the digital age. The Lost Gutenberg is a spellbinding read, and Margaret Leslie Davis is a damn good storyteller.”—Noël Riley Fitch, author of Sylvia Beach: Une américaine à Paris

      "Margaret Leslie Davis’s The Lost Gutenberg is a fascinating and apt successor to her Mona Lisa in Camelot, for the Gutenberg Bible is to the book arts what the Mona Lisa is to painting—a Holy Grail and epitome of the art it embodies. Davis writes of the succession of owners of a particular copy of Gutenberg’s masterpiece, number 45. She gives a haunting and at times heartbreaking account of the way a material object can acquire a mystical resonance and affect different people and lives across centuries."—Victoria Steele, former Brooke Russell Astor Director of Collections, New York Public Library

      “This wonderful, elegant story, which reads like a thriller, will delight anyone who loves books, collecting, history, and biography. The Gutenberg Bible was the object of admiration, greed, and speculation, but also of brilliant scientific discoveries. Populated by remarkable and quirky individuals, their passions and tragedies, this superbly researched historical gem is a veritable page-turner.”—Diana Kormos Buchwald, Director and General Editor, Einstein Papers Project, The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, Professor of History, Caltech

      “Margaret Leslie Davis has done it again—unearthed fresh information about a cultural icon and turned it into a compelling story that reveals human nature while illuminating a slice of history. In this case her subject is the Gutenberg Bible or, to be more precise, Number 45 of the 48 existing copies of the book. The larger story digs into 500 years of book-collecting and all the love, lust, and drama that can afflict proud possessors.”—Suzanne Muchnic, author of Odd Man In: Norton Simon and the Pursuit of Culture and LACMA So Far: A Portrait of a Museum in the Making; former art reporter and art critic, Los Angeles Times

      “The fascinating story of how one Gutenberg Bible traveled through two centuries and how one woman, the legendary Los Angeles book collector Estelle Doheny, pursued, purchased, and cherished it. This tale, written for both ardent bibliophiles and those seeking an engaging historical narrative, includes a sad episode of betrayal, exciting nuclear discoveries, and the arrival of Gutenberg into the digital age.”—Alan Jutzi, former Avery Curator of Rare Books, Henry E. Huntington Library

      "Davis records the history of this book with enthusiasm and attention to detail."—History Today

      "Fascinating.... An engaging analysis of bibliomania which also throws light on commercial and investment history in Britain and America."—Church Times

      An eye-opening exploration of race in America

      In this deeply inspiring book, Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi recount their experiences talking to people from all walks of life about race and identity on a cross-country tour of America. Spurred by the realization that they had nearly completed high school without hearing any substantive discussion about racism in school, the two young women deferred college admission for a year to collect first-person accounts of how racism plays out in this country every day--and often in unexpected ways.

      In Tell Me Who You Are, Guo and Vulchi reveal the lines that separate us based on race or other perceived differences and how telling our stories--and listening deeply to the stories of others--are the first and most crucial steps we can take towards negating racial inequity in our culture. Featuring interviews with over 150 Americans accompanied by their photographs, this intimate toolkit also offers a deep examination of the seeds of racism and strategies for effecting change.

      This groundbreaking book will inspire readers to join Guo and Vulchi in imagining an America in which we can fully understand and appreciate who we are.
      Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi co-founded the organization CHOOSE in 10th grade to provide the tools we lack to talk about race and identity in America. They published a racial literacy textbook for educators called "The Classroom Index," which has been recognized and funded by Princeton University and is currently being used by educators in more than 30 states. Before attending Harvard and Princeton University (respectively), Winona and Priya traveled to all 50 states, collecting hundreds of powerful stories about race, culture, and intersectionality. They are the youngest residents in the TED Residency Program and spent their summer further analyzing their research before heading to college.

      “In Tell Me Who You Are, Priya Vulchi and Winona Guo do exactly that--tell us who they are, how they have come to thinking so carefully, so deeply about race, and how they want to create change. From Alaska to Florida they visit all fifty of these United States to talk to people about their experiences of race and the intersections of identity in America. This book is at once hopeful, raw, and brimming with curiosity, engagement and youthful energy. Through the conversations these women have with people from all walks of life, we see that the key to any kind of progress begins with letting people tell us who they are. If you want to have richer, more fruitful discussions about race, gender, all the things that comprise our identities, this book will give you a necessary vocabulary. All you have to do is turn the page.” 

      --Roxane Gay New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist and Difficult Women

      “This is an exploration of race in America by two young women who are earnestly challenging their own assumptions, and encouraging the rest of us to do the same.  If you’re a young person who wants to be part of our national conversation on race but doesn’t know where to start, this book is an engaging launching point.”

      --Cecilia Muñoz, former Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for President Obama and Senior Vice President at the National Council of La Raza (now  UNIDOS US), the nation’s largest Hispanic policy and advocacy organization

      “This is a critical book for current times where we are seeing a resurgence of nationalism, racism, sexism and authoritarianism globally. Better communication and understanding, particularly among the next generation, is the key to humanizing the unfamiliar and countering identity politics. Kudos Priya and Winona for your vision, your journey and the honesty and respect with which you tackle diverse stories from across the country."

      --Yasmeen Hassan, Global Executive Director of Equality Now

      "From the moment these two remarkable young women took the TEDWomen stage as high school seniors to talk about their commitment to have a real conversation about race, I knew their work would be a game changer in the conversation about race in this country…and Tell Me Who You Are is just that—the outcome of an extraordinary journey from the wealthiest neighborhoods to the poorest reservations and communities to find out more about who we all are." 

      --Pat Mitchell, former President of CNN Productions and the first woman President and CEO of PBS

      “I’m truly astonished by the vision, audacity, and leadership of Winona Guo + Priya Vulchi to compile these amazing stories from over 150 Americans. These girls are the antidote to the notion that this generation is apathetic. In fact, they are our thought leaders and have proven to be dynamic change-makers! It takes enormous courage to confront the cracks in our humanity and hold space for such diverse stories.  

      Tell Me Who You Are is exactly what our country needs right now. In these divisive times, two young women have managed to create a tangible catalyst for compelling and necessary conversation, by doing something truly radical: Listening. Deeply.

      --Monique Coleman, actress, Global Youth Advocate, CEO of Motivated Productions

      “While we know a lot about racial literacy, the work that Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi have accomplished in Tell Me Who You Are brings life to this concept. They are magical in weaving in the stories of everyday folks’ racial traumas and triumphs and force us to question the way we see the world. They encourage us to stop assuming we understand racial, gender, sexual, age and ability biases and open our eyes. They implore us to be more than spectators or witnesses, ignorant of the broken racial promises right in front of us and speak to that loss. This work is a call for not just talking about social justice but doing random acts of justice everyday. Be careful. If you want your racial justice neatly packaged into the “saying the right thing” or “avoiding the wrong thing to say,” go elsewhere. But if you want to become fluid in how to keep the racial justice promises we make to people who are different in this society, read on.”

      --Howard Stevenson, Ph.D., Director of Forward Promise, Racial Empowerment Collaborative, Constance E. Clayton, Professor of Urban Education, University of Pennsylvania


      “Brave. Bold. Insightful. This book not only offers insight into how we think and do race, it is a testament to what this generation can do to fundamentally transform our world. The reader can’t help but feel the energy, passion and commitment of these two brilliant young women.”

      --Eddie S. Glaude Jr., James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Chair, African American Studies, Princeton University

      At a time when many boys are in crisis, a much-needed roadmap for helping boys grow into strong and compassionate men

      Over the past two decades there has been an explosion of new studies that have expanded our knowledge of how boys think and feel. In How to Raise a Boy, psychologist Michael Reichert draws on his decades of research to challenge age-old conventions about how boys become men.

      Reichert explains how the paradigms about boys needing to be stoic and "man like" can actually cause them to shut down, leading to anger, isolation, and disrespectful or even destructive behaviors. The key to changing the culture lies in how parents, educators, and mentors help boys develop socially and emotionally. Reichert offers readers step-by-step guidance in doing just this by:
        •  Listening and observing, without judgment, so that boys know they're being heard.
        •  Helping them develop strong connections with teachers, coaches, and other role models
        •  Encouraging them to talk about their feelings about the opposite sex and stressing the importance of respecting women
        •  Letting them know that they don't have to "be a man" or "suck it up," when they are experiencing physical or emotional pain.

      Featuring the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience, How to Raise a Boy will help those who care for young boys and teenagers build a boyhood that will enable them to grow into confident, accomplished and kind men.
      Michael C. Reichert, Ph.D., is founding director of the Center for the Study of Boys' and Girls' Lives at the University of Pennsylvania, and a clinical practitioner specializing in boys and men who has conducted extensive research globally.

      “No one writes more powerfully about how much boys need loving relationships to become healthy men. With the training of a researcher and the soul of a clinician, Michael Reichert has looked deeply into their hearts and lives; he sees behind their under achievement and gaming addictions and recognizes their yearning for connection and friendship. If you are the parent or teacher of a boy, if you love a boy, you should read How to Raise a Boy.”
      Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D., author of Raising Cain and Best Friends, Worst Enemies
      “In the ten years since my book about boys’ troubles came out, I have spoken to countless parents and educators about their worries. Over this same period things have not gotten any easier for boys—in fact, it is more important than ever for families to nurture men of character, emotional intelligence and resilience. In this groundbreaking book, Michael Reichert combines a unique blend of research, clinical insight, and personal experience to offer an encouraging approach to raising our sons. If you have a son, or a grandson, or a nephew or a brother, buy this book.”
      Peg Tyre, New York Times bestselling author of The Trouble with Boys

      “A thoughtful, honest, and ultimately hopeful map for raising a son today . . . Michael Reichert does what he has done for so long for so many: give brilliant insight and advice that help so many boys become confident men of purpose and character.”
      —Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabes and Masterminds and Wingmen

      “Michael blends the wisdom of being a loving parent and a caring clinician to help us listen to, understand, and honor our sons and the boys in our lives, in order to assist them to be their best and truest selves.”
       —David L. Bell, MD MPH, Medical Director, The Young Men’s Clinic, New York Presbyterian Hospital/ Columbia University Medical Center
      How to Raise a Boy is a book of positivity and hope for navigating the complex and often fraught journey of raising boys to be good men in today’s world. Through fascinating stories from boys and their caregivers, it provides valuable and practical insight into the utmost significance of relationality and the power of connection in dismantling the harmful gender norms of the ‘boy code’ that compromise the lives of all of us.”
       —Amanda Keddie, Professor of Education, Deakin University (Australia)
      “Michael Reichert weaves a lovely tapestry of stories, experiences, insights and reflections acquired over a long distinguished career guiding boys and young men.  A must read-- not only for parents of boys but also for educators, administrators and counselors entrusted with the responsibility of championing boys’ education and development.”
       —David M. Armstrong, Executive Director, International Boys’ School Coalition
       “Michael Reichert's highly readable and important book not only reveals how we have failed boys by gendering our human capacities to think and feel, with the latter being considered girly and gay and thus put on the bottom of our hierarchy of values. He underscores the similarities between boys and girls, or among all humans, in their social and emotional needs and capacities. Recognizing this simple and empirically proven fact is key to his proposed solutions to foster boys' natural capacities to connect to themselves and others. A must read for all who care about boys and men.”
       —Niobe Way, Professor of Developmental Psychology, New York University, and author of Deep Secrets: Boys Friendships and the Crisis of Connection
      “This book is a must-read for anyone who has, or expects to have, a boy in their life. Dr. Reichert punctuates theory and research with real life vignettes from his own extensive clinical practice, powerfully bringing the pages to life. He explodes many of the myths about boys that stand in the way of healthy relationships with their parents and peers. He carefully guides parents through strategies that enhance their positive influence on their sons, thereby ensuring that they can thrive in an increasingly confusing and complicated world.”
       —Dennis J. Barbour, Esq., President and CEO, The Partnership for Male Youth
      “In this important new book, Michael Reichert draws on years of experience in the field and his vast knowledge of research on gender and adolescent development to present helpful ideas to parents and educators who seek to raise healthy boys and young men.  Written in a sensible, clear and compelling manner, this book is chock full of wisdom and practical suggestions.  At a time when we have so much evidence that many boys are in trouble, we finally have a book that offers the insights and practical guidance we need to raise boys!”
       —Pedro A. Noguera, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Education, Faculty Director, Center for the Transformation of Schools 
      “Michael Reichert has woven together a must-read that thoughtfully describes how to support boys to thrive.  He draws on findings from cutting edge research (his own and others), practice as a clinician and educational consultant, and first-hand experience as a parent, to illustrate their needs for us to appreciate them as individuals, and to work to have meaningful relationships with them.”
       —K. Ann Renninger, Dorwin P. Cartwright Professor of Social Theory and Social Action, Department of Educational Studies, Swarthmore College
      “Michael Reichert has spent three decades working to understand how boys think, feel, and act.  In How to Raise a Boy, he distills that learning into ten chapters that focus on the challenges boys face today, and on how the adults in their lives can help boys navigate the risks and develop into good men.  His advice:  purposefully intrude on your son's privacy to become part of his life!  Boys are equal to girls in their capacity to commit their hearts--but only to those they trust.  Highly recommended for all parents and educators.”
       —Dr. John Nagl, Lieutenant Colonel, US Army (Retired), Ninth Headmaster, The Haverford School
      “From years of work with boys and young men, Michael Reichert is well-positioned to explain the dire consequences of how we raise boys to be men. With deep compassion guiding both his work and his writing, he points to positive directions to bring change. A must read for parents, teachers and, really, for us all.”
       —Michael Kaufman, author of The Time Has Come: Why Men Must Join the Gender Equality Revolution
       “How To Raise a Boy seeks nothing short of redemption for our young men and for our country. Through a range of topics including Love, Violence, Integrity, Self-Respect, Hope, Social Development, Peer Bullying and Peer Support, Dr. Reichert has written a treatise for anyone seeking to know young men of today and to set in motion the necessary steps to improve the trajectory of young men’s lives.
      His analysis of the issues elevates our understanding of how to combat and better prepare the youth for an ever-changing society; strengthening their chances for safety, satisfaction and success.
      Dr. Reichert offers specific strategies to guide adults who play a key role in the development of boys.  His good counsel speaks directly to the men and women of our nation providing a “roadmap” to move us away from old and false ideas and toxic stereotypes, that do nothing but constrict, and replace them with fresh beliefs and empowering practices that redefine and enlighten masculinity in healthy ways.
      How To Raise a Boy is vital for educators and parents across the United States who grapple with young men whether they are withdrawn, lack direction, are egotistical, disengaged, or who suffer with substance abuse or hyper-masculinity as well as those struggling to find direction in their lives as well as to find their identify."
       —David C. Banks, President & CEO, The Eagle Academy Foundation, Inc.

      “The battle for our sons’ souls rages on. Parents, policymakers and teachers are worried, as they should be. Pundits debate whether boys should ‘man up’ or whether it’s manhood itself that is the problem. Into the debate Michael Reichert offers this bright light: boys need more connection, not less. They need care, not carelessness. They need parents, teachers and all of us being courageous enough to let boys simply be the full-hearted human beings they want to be.  And to love them and support them all along the way.  How to Raise a Boy is a much-needed contribution to the discussion.”

    Authentic Gravitas Who Stands Out and Why Rebecca Newton Ph.D.

      Have a powerful impact—by being more like yourself rather than less, through this groundbreaking approach taught at the London School of Economics and companies worldwide.

      Organizational psychologist and executive coach Rebecca Newton has found that even her most successful clients still want more of one quality: gravitas. They want their words to carry weight, to have a positive, lasting impact on those around them.

      Gravitas can seem like an elusive, intangible quality, but it isn't about adopting the style of another or being someone you're not. Newton draws on extensive research and experience coaching business leaders to show what underpins authentic gravitas and how anyone can develop it. She presents the counterintuitive idea that in order to be valued, we shouldn't spend all our time and energy trying to stand out from the crowd; instead, we should focus on the crowd--connecting with others and understanding their needs in order to make a significant difference.

      Newton debunks the myths of gravitas and gives readers the practical tools to develop it by:
        *  Minimizing the gaps between intention, action, and impact
        *  Remaining true to yourself while adapting to work successfully with people who have different styles
        *  Choosing to be courageous regardless of how confident you feel--as you engage in courageous behaviors, confidence naturally builds

      Authentic gravitas extends beyond commanding presence in the room during a key meeting; it's about the small things you can do beforehand, during, and in all the spaces in between--to be someone who genuinely adds substantive value in the workplace and beyond.
      Rebecca Newton, PhD, is an organizational and social psychologist and Senior Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science in the Department of Management. She teaches on leadership, communication, professional development, and management practice. Newton is the CEO of CoachAdviser and has 20 years' experience coaching business leaders and teams in companies around the world. She writes for the Harvard Business Review, was formerly a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University, and has facilitated executive education for the University of Cambridge.

      "Gravitas must be caused by an agent acting constantly according to certain laws, and Rebecca Newton has found those laws. It doesn't take confidence to matter, but it does take courage."
      —Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of This is Marketing

      "A powerful, practical resource for people looking to bring their best self to work, and for leaders who want to equip others to do the same.”
      —Melissa Daimler, former head of learning & organizational development at Adobe, Twitter, and WeWork

      “Shortly after taking on my first senior leadership position, I was critiqued for needing ‘more gravitas.’ While I was not precisely sure what this meant, it resonated. The insight in Authentic Gravitas would have given me the permission and pathway to establish it with sincerity and purpose. Twelve years on, I am still on the journey and know that many others are too. How wonderful that we now have a resource, based on evidence and experience, to drive positive results—with gravitas.”
      —Shanelle Hall, Deputy Executive Director and Assistant Secretary General of UNICEF
      “We need more leaders with gravitas—people who are authentic, humble, and wise. Rebecca is one of a rare breed, a business psychologist as well as a genuine scholar—her book is full of practical wisdom and academic insight on how gravitas can be nurtured.”
      — Alexander (Sandy) Pepper, Professor of Management Practice at the London School of Economics and Political Science

      “For anyone who feels overlooked and underappreciated, Authentic Gravitas dispels the myth that gravitas is inherited rather than deliberatively developed. Newton reframes gravitas as a direct reflection of one’s ability and willingness to add value. In an age where it can feel like the loudest voice wins, this book shows that value-add trumps vainglory." 
      —Jane Mosbacher Morris, founder and CEO of To the Market and author of Buy the Change You Want to See

      “Authentic gravitas is not about power or position but about how to lead with character and dignity. This book will certainly challenge your thinking and hopefully your behavior, as it has mine. A must-read.”  
      —Flip Flippen, Chairman of The Flippen Group and New York Times-bestselling author of The Flip Side

      “Rebecca dispels the myth of that ‘mythical something’ that few people seem to possess but we all seek to have: to have weight, value, influence; to catch and keep the attention of others. Delving into what makes gravitas, and the personal beliefs and habits that get in our way of embodying it, Rebecca helps the reader realize that gravitas, which is seemingly innate, spontaneous, and effortless in those who have it, is actually the result of practice and preparation. Rebecca’s book is a guide to being who we are, in the best way possible.” 
      —Julie Okada, Managing Director, Duke Corporate Education

      "A must-read for leaders who want to bring out the best in themselves and their people. The robust tools in this book will help you to identify practical ways to drive value and make a significant, meaningful impact.”
      —Heidi K. Gardner, author of Smart Collaboration and Distinguished Scholar, Harvard Law School

      "Authentic Gravitas gives leaders a practical roadmap to achieve two things: a way to be much more effective in how they communicate; and, at the same time, a way to do this that is true to who they are. Every leader I know should read this book.”
      —Elsbeth Johnson, PhD, Senior Lecturer, MIT Sloan School of Management

      “It is great to see a book that gets to the heart of what it means to influence well and how to do it. A must-read.”
      —James Prior, Global Head of Leadership, Oncology, Novartis

      "Full of thought provoking ideas and practical gems that will help you build gravitas and make you a stronger leader."
      —Hsern-Wei Ling, Executive Director, Learning and Development, PwC Malaysia 

      “Newton elegantly weaves academic insight and deep hands-on experience into a convincing illumination of our understanding of gravitas. A must-read for leaders and coaches alike.”
      —David Storey, Partner and EMEIA Talent Management Consulting Leader at Ernst & Young

      “Rebecca Newton presents an approach to leadership that is both profoundly true and immensely practical. Essential reading for all leaders and aspiring leaders who want to succeed on their own terms.”
      —Jim Prior, Global CEO of Superunion, WPP
