The Power of Wonder: The Extraordinary Emotion That Will Change the Way You Live, Learn, and Lead by Monica C. Parker (New York / Tarcher Perigee / Penguin Random House 2023)
Why you should read it: An emotion more powerful than happiness, who doesn’t want more of that in their life? Monica takes us on a journey, magically synthesizing stories, spirituality (nature, religion, inexplicable moments) and science to make the case for pursuing wonder in all aspects of our lives. Being wonderprone is an intention. It is something you can actively work at. And being more wonderprone makes you more resilient, empathetic, creative, and yes, a better leader.
