Sowing the mustard seed
Yoweri Museveni’s story on the struggle for freedom and democracy in Uganda
Finding Me by Viola Davis
In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever.
This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose but also my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.
As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you.
Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.

YOUR HUSTLE,MY HEARTBEAT by Antony Mwenda
The unmasking the anatomy of true resilience in words and pictures from a village chicken seller to the palace is a special bio for His excellency William Samoei RUTO. He is the most dynamic politician in Kenya and Africa who has mattered the art of the game and taken it a notch higher. He is a great ground mobilizer and his bottom up economic model has touched many.
A self made politician different from many other key players who mainly ascend to power through cronies, family connections and dynasty affiliations. William Samoei RUTO has come from a very humble background, he even sold chicken on the streets when young to make ends meet.
I can only equit him to Napoleon Bonaparte who when his teacher was asked to describe him, he simply stated that he is made of granite but inside him is a volcano.Ruto is a simple man who is humble and supportive.From a simple background and unknown village in Uasin Gishu County in Kenya but strong force in his career.
He has defied all practical odds to reach where he is today. He is a force to reckon with. He has unmatched charisma that has made him become the darling of many lower class and middle class. He is a role model to the middle class and upper class.
This book unmasks his unique him to you as a reader and a leader.
Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
David Sedaris plays in the snow with his sisters. He goes on vacation with his family. He gets a job selling drinks. He attends his brother’s wedding. He mops his sister’s floor. He gives directions to a lost traveler. He eats a hamburger. He has his blood sugar tested. It all sounds so normal, doesn’t it? In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives — a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.
An American Family: A Memoir of Hope and Sacrifice
An American Family is an intensely personal story about the nature of true patriotism and what it’s like to risk everything you know for the promise of a 226-year-old piece of parchment. As Khizr Khan traces his remarkable journey–from humble beginnings on a poultry farm in Pakistan to obtaining a degree from Harvard Law School and raising a family in America–he shows what it means to leave the limitations of one’s country behind for the best values and promises of another. He also tells the story of the Khans’ middle child, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed while protecting his base camp in Iraq, and the ways in which their undying pride in him and his sacrifice have helped them endure the deepest despair a parent can know.
The book is a stark depiction of what an American looks like, what being a nation of immigrants really means, and what it is to live-rather than simply to pay lip service to-our ideals.
The Wisdom Of The Crowd
In this fascinating book, New Yorker business columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea: Large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant–better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.
With boundless erudition and in delightfully clear prose, Surowiecki ranges across fields as diverse as popular culture, psychology, ant biology, behavioral economics, artificial intelligence, military history, and politics to show how this simple idea offers important lessons for how we live our lives, select our leaders, run our companies, and think about our world.
