Speaking to her own struggle with chronic illness and trying to heal from trauma, Róisín, a Bangladeshi Muslim, looks at wellness through the lens of advocacy and social justice.

Peace Is a Practice An Invitation to Breathe Deep and Find a New Rhythm for Life by Morgan Harper Nichols

Morgan Harper Nichols’s new book examines stories from her own life and the lives of people around the world with a common thread: We all long for peace. Peace is a Practice invites you to become a peacemaker in your own life, starting right where you are, and in some of the most unexpected places. This is not a “just breathe” book, or a “do this and feel better” book, but a new look at how to sit with yourself, notice what is, and extend grace to yourself and others. Nichols’s beautiful poetry and affirmations, combined with her well-known illustration style, kept me turning pages and soaking it all in.  —Jenny

Under the Skin by Linda Villarosa

Villarosa provides an essential education on the racism deeply rooted in our healthcare system, focusing particularly on the harm done to the Black community. Through research, interviews, and personal experience, she shows the lasting effects of inhumane programs and policies, and the ongoing traumatic stress undermining well-being. This is not an easy summer read but it is necessary, timely, as the unequal toll of COVID-19 brings to glaring light the continued problems that we as a country must accept and address.  —Melinda

Noise A Flaw in Human Judgment by Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony & Cass R. Sunstein

From the author of one of Barack Obama’s favorite books about decision making, Thinking Fast and Slow, comes another book to help you strengthen your resolve. In Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment, Daniel Kahneman teams up with two fellow professors to examine not how bias affects choices, but how noise, or the seemingly irrelevant factors influencing us, does. Noise can be anything from hunger to fatigue, from time of day to the role of the first speaker in a conversation. No matter your field, Noise will have you thinking twice the next time you make a decision.  —Aric

This Is Not a Book about Benedict Cumberbatch by Tabitha Carvan

Okay, this actually is a book about good ol’ BC, kind of, but in the most enjoyable and liberating way. Australian writer Carvan candidly details her unexpected attention to the actor during her early years of motherhood. She explores the self-described community of Cumberbitches, obsession versus hobby, the scarcity of pure leisure, the loss of self-identity, and more. But ultimately, this is a book about joy and the permission to embrace it. A hilarious, eye-opening, and restorative read.  —Melinda

Rationality by Steven Pinker

Arguably one of the most enlightened people alive, psychologist, linguist, and award-winning author Steven Pinker is back to examine the roots of common sense and the growing popularity of irrational thought. Pinker frames logic and rationality as disparate yet connected concepts and outlines the way our mind can trick us into seeing patterns and coincidences that don’t have a basis in reality. In an age of spiraling conspiracy theories, Rationality serves as both a guide and a call to arms to the intellectual world.—Aric
