Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. When her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. It will lead to jealousy, betrayal and despair. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of '80s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings. Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood.

In this moving collection of thought-provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humor, Union tells astonishingly personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism, and fame. Union tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents.

For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can - with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike - and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections.

Wayne Dyer is one of the most relatable teachers I have come across in my life time. His lessons are humorous, yet so profound in sharing life's truths. The title is so befitting of this book and what he learned as he looked back. I can totally understand now what he and many others like him including Steve Jobs mean when they say, we can only connect the dots when we look back. It's a beautiful book, one that I will re-read many more times to come. His lessons cut across age, culture and time. May Wayne Dyer continue to rest in eternal peace as his words continue to transform people into being better citizens of humanity.

After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. 'I was in "the void,"' she writes, 'a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.' Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.

To all who have lost a loved one, this book clearly describes the pain, hurt and sorrow so vividly using words we all feel but are unable to express in those moments. Yet, also with the same breath, we also get tips on how to cope, survive and live despite the pain. I can't say I finished feeling I had conquered the pain, but I realized I was not alone in this journey of living past loss.

This is such an incredible book on profound lessons on personal development and leadership. I kept playing sections over and over to ensure I grasped each point and lesson succinctly. I am definitely going to listen to it again and again because the tips here never age. The only we get, the more we want to ensure we are living life to its fullest. I must applaud the author and the readerof the audio book for capturing each detail and sharing it with such colour and depth, I felt one with the story. And finally, while the ending was predictable, it summarised the book in one lessons, the importance of being present . I highly recommend it to people searching for their purpose, or searching for tools and tips to lead fulfilling lives.
