The new year is traditionally a chance to reassess our life goals, but all this talk of self-development can become overwhelming and make it hard to know where to start. From career achievements and political action to good habits and healthy eating, this selection of books is here to help you re-think what’s possible. This year, stop feeling stressed about resolutions and, instead, get excited about what you have the power to change.
