Centerstone Leaders Share Favorite Mental Health, Leadership Books

More than 75 percent of American adults read at least one book a year, according to a Pew Research poll.

With National Read a Book Day being celebrated on Sept. 6, it’s a perfect opportunity to grab a book and explore the fascinating stories and lessons contained within.

Are you looking for a new book to read in the mental health, self-help or leadership categories?

Here are some great recommendations from some of our Centerstone leaders.

“The Anatomy of Peace”

by the Arbinger Institute

“This book analyzes and breaks down how our hearts are engaged in a ‘hearts of war’ rather than ‘hearts of peace.’ The book is written around a group process and outlines the issues that keep individuals in conflict and not able to achieve peace. I h4ly recommend this book as it applies in our everyday lives.”
