What We Are Reading Today: More Than Enough

Author: Elaine Welteroth

In this part-manifesto, part-memoir, the revolutionary editor who infused social consciousness into the pages of Teen Vogue explores what it means to come into your own — on your own terms, says a review published on goodreads.com.
Throughout her life, Elaine Welteroth has climbed the ranks of media and fashion, shattering ceilings along the way. In this riveting and timely memoir, the groundbreaking journalist unpacks lessons on race, identity, and success through her own journey, from navigating her way as the unstoppable child of an unlikely interracial marriage in small-town California to finding herself on the frontlines of a modern movement for the next generation of change makers.
Welteroth moves beyond the headlines and highlight reels to share the profound lessons and struggles of being a barrier-breaker across so many intersections.
As a young boss and often the only colored woman in the room, she has had enough of the world telling her—and all women — they are not enough. As she learns to rely on herself by looking both inward and upward, we are ultimately reminded that we are more than enough.

What We Are Reading Today: Indistractable by Nir Eyal

International best-selling author, former Stanford lecturer, and behavioral design expert, Nir Eyal, wrote Silicon Valley’s handbook for making technology habit-forming. Five years after publishing Hooked, Eyal reveals distraction’s Achilles’ heel in his groundbreaking new book.

In Indistractable, Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction, according to a review published on goodreads.com. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices: Abstinence is impractical and often makes us want more.

Eyal lays bare the secret of finally doing what you say you will do with a four-step, research-backed model. Indistractable reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us.

Empowering and optimistic, Indistractable provides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention — helping you live the life you really want.

Commenting on the book, James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, said: “Indistractable provides a framework that will deliver the focus you need to get results.”
