    Educated by Tara Westover. A memoir of a woman brought up in the mountains of Idaho to survivalists who prepared for the end of the world, distrusted medicine (her mother was an herbalist/healer/midwife) and who didn't believe in education. One of Tara's. Rothers actually broke away from the family and went to college exposing her to a different life outside of their community.

    Not only did she self educate herself enough to get into college with attending high school, she went on to Harvard and then Cambridge University.

    Incredibly gripping book but so infuriating that parents could do what they did to their children. Tara Westover is one determined woman!

    You can see an interview of her with Ellen on YouTube.

  3. Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup (John Carreyrou , Author) (I highly recommend this well written TRUE STORY)

    From Amazon pg

    In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup “unicorn” promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes’s worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn’t work.

    A riveting story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron, a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.

    Power and Care: Toward Balance for Our Common Future-Science, Society, and Spirituality
    by Tania Singer (Editor), Matthieu Ricard (Editor), Kate Karius (Editor), Dalai Lama (Contribution by), Frans B. M. de Waal (Contribution by)


    Leading thinkers from a range of disciplines discuss the compatibility of power and care, in conversation with the Dalai Lama.

    For more than thirty years, the Dalai Lama has been in dialogue with thinkers from a range of disciplines, helping to support pathways for knowledge to increase human wellbeing and compassion. These conversations, which began as private meetings, are now part of the Mind & Life Institute and Mind & Life Europe. This book documents a recent Mind & Life Institute dialogue with the Dalai Lama and others on two fundamental forces: power and care—power over and care for others in human societies.

    The notion of power is essentially neutral; power can be used to benefit others or to harm them, to build or to destroy. Care, on the other hand, is not a neutral force; it aims at increasing the wellbeing of others. Power and care are not incompatible: power, imbued with care, can achieve more than a powerless motivation to care; power, without the intention to benefit others, can be ruthless. The contributors—who include such celebrated figures as Frans B. M. de Waal, Olafur Eliasson, Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, and Jody Williams—discuss topics including the interaction of power and care among our closest relatives, the chimpanzees; the effect of meditation and mental training practices on the brain; the role of religion in promoting peace and compassion; and the new field of Caring Economics.
