Here are recent best sellers from 800-CEO-READ:

• In “Happiness,” Tam takes what she learned from being an unwanted, neglected and abused child in Hong Kong to become an international business success and humanitarian who is happy, healthy and at peace with herself. This book reveals the principles she has used to achieve a balanced, healthy and joyful life.

• DeLong explains in “Flying” how to draw strength from vulnerability. First, understand the forces that escalate anxiety in high achievers and the unproductive behaviors you turn to for relief. Then adopt practices that give you the courage to “do the right things poorly” before “doing the right things well.” • When it comes to decision making, our brains are flawed instruments. But given that we are biologically hard-wired to act foolishly and behave irrationally at times, how can we do better? In “Decisive,” the Heath brothers, drawing on extensive studies, stories and research, offer specific, practical tools that can help us to think more clearly about our options, and get out of our heads, to improve our decision making at work and at home.
