The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

Even though we like to think otherwise, most of the time we don't make decisions. Instead we just automatically do what we've done before, and repeating those habits makes us less productive and less effective than we could be.
So what can you do? Change an old habit into a new habit. It's not easy, but it is simple. And it's an infinitely repeatable process.


Moonwalking With Einstein by Joshua Foer

I forget stuff all the time. Trivial things, important things, all kinds of things. Like creativity, memory is a process—all you need are the right tools.
Not only does Foer provide those tools, he wraps them inside his story of winning the U.S. Memory Championship, which makes the book even more memorable (sorry, couldn't resist).
 
 

Emotional Equations by Chip Conley

Mathematical equations can provide insights into your feelings and emotions.
Don't think it's possible? Surely you've thought, "Once I looked at that differently I felt a lot better," right? Conley's equations provide a mental framework that can help center you when you're wallowing in despair... or help you contain your euphoria when your expectations are out of control.
Balance is everything; knowing the equations, and acting accordingly, can help you achieve that balance.
