What Books Should Professionals Read this Summer?
Atomic Habits by James Clear
Atomic Habits has been a massive success since its publication in 2018. It’s all about the small habits we have in life, the little things we do every day and may not even think about, and how those things impact the larger picture. That’s where the book’s name comes from – just as atoms are the tiniest building blocks of everything, our smallest habits create a foundation for the success we want to have. If you would to learn more about breaking bad habits and building better ones, give Atomic Habits a try.

Spencer Johnson’s classic book was published all the way back in 1998, but the lessons it holds still ring true today. This book is all about dealing with change, personally and professionally, and how to best respond to the inevitable change that will impact your life at some point or another. By anticipating change, and then acknowledging and accepting it, you can give yourself a much better reaction when it happens – that makes every part of your life easier.
