Carry Strong

- Stephanie Kramer

Trade paperback $27.99
Reader Reward Price: $25.19

A groundbreaking approach to successfully navigating your pregnancy at work

Pregnancy is a profound journey. Navigating it while working--from figuring out how to tell your boss you're pregnant to squeezing in doctors' appointments between meetings, all while working even harder to prove yourself--can be a push and pull between a desire for privacy and the need for support. The good news is, it's possible to thrive in both spaces. Carry Strong offers a new approach that will transform your pregnancy years at work from something to "get through" into a career opportunity to embrace with confidence.

Employing original research, expert advice, and real-life stories from Olympic athletes, CEOs, and hundreds of amazing working mothers across the country, executive and professor Stephanie Kramer outlines essential principles for navigating pregnancy and work simultaneously. She shows you how to embrace a different perspective, find your balance, cultivate community, communicate your needs, and navigate the shift in identity from working woman to working mother. Along the way, you'll identify career considerations to make at each phase of pregnancy, starting with the moment you decide you want to become a working mom-to-be.

In Carry Strong, Kramer flips the script: This isn't about powering through pregnancy at work. It's about being powerful and pregnant at work.

Enough About the Baby

- Becky Vieira

Trade paperback $23.99
Reader Reward Price: $21.59

An unapologetic guide to the first year of motherhood, Enough About the Baby is a newborn book for women who recognize the necessity of self-care--even if sometimes the rest of the world does not.

Superheroes don't have babies; real and imperfect non-superhumans do. When we come to terms with this, the result is a happier and less traumatizing start to motherhood. Becky Vieira, the mom behind the popular Instagram account @wittyotter, provides actionable advice for new parents on what to expect after pregnancy and how to successfully navigate the frustrations and challenges that come with having a baby. Vieira draws on her own experiences and interviews with moms and experts to get to the bottom of the toughest and most taboo topics--from managing nosey in-laws and an anxious partner to surviving the first postpartum poop and when to seek out treatment for postpartum depression. This book is filled with hacks, tips, and tricks that only the most seasoned--and enlightened--mom knows. (Ever hear of a condsicle, an ergonomic ice pack for a battered nether region?) Vieira reminds readers that motherhood shouldn't be martyrdom, and a new mom who puts her needs first often isn't selfish at all.

With its combination of practical advice and the signature humor that made Vieira a hit on Instagram, Enough About the Baby makes a perfect baby shower gift for first time moms.

Expecting Better

- Emily Oster

Trade paperback $24.00
Reader Reward Price: $21.60

"Emily Oster is the non-judgmental girlfriend holding our hand and guiding us through pregnancy and motherhood. She has done the work to get us the hard facts in a soft, understandable way." --Amy Schumer

*Fully Revised and Updated for 2021*


What to Expect When You're Expecting meets Freakonomics: an award-winning economist and author of Cribsheet and The Family Firm disproves standard recommendations about pregnancy to empower women while they're expecting. 

Pregnancy--unquestionably one of the most pro­found, meaningful experiences of adulthood--can reduce otherwise intelligent women to, well, babies. Pregnant women are told to avoid cold cuts, sushi, alcohol, and coffee without ever being told why these are forbidden. Rules for prenatal testing are similarly unexplained. Moms-to-be desperately want a resource that empowers them to make their own right choices.

When award-winning economist Emily Oster was a mom-to-be herself, she evaluated the data behind the accepted rules of pregnancy, and discovered that most are often misguided and some are just flat-out wrong. Debunking myths and explaining everything from the real effects of caffeine to the surprising dangers of gardening, Expecting Better is the book for every pregnant woman who wants to enjoy a healthy and relaxed pregnancy--and the occasional glass of wine.

Grow Up

- Gary John Bishop

Hardcover $29.99
Reader Reward Price: $26.99

The New York Times bestselling author of Unfu*k Yourself helps cut through our anxieties about being a "good parent" so we can take charge of our lives and show our kids how to take charge of their own.

Gary John Bishop has helped millions of people break free of self-sabotaging behaviors. Yet we all seem to feel like we're failing at this thing called parenting. Common wisdom isn't working--our kids are struggling. Gary argues we don't need more tips, tricks, and techniques, we need an overhaul of who we are. We're never going to measure up to the "perfect parent" model we've built up in our heads--a Frankenstein version of mom and dad cobbled together from our childhoods, our parents, cultural ideals, social media, and everything in between.

We want to be good parents, but our pasts hold us back. If you're thinking: "I can't be a good parent because I had a shitty childhood, bad parents, or a traumatic experience"--stop! Let go of what came before and start taking action in the present to be the person that nurtures their child from a place of love, forgiveness, and integrity. By doing so, you are modeling and equipping your kids to confidently face the world and thrive.

Whether you are a parent, want to be a parent, or simply have parents, this book will cut to the heart of who you are and how you show up in the world--to fully take charge of the direction of your life and show your kids how to follow theirs.
