2.  Good Enough: They Myth of Success and How to Celebrate the Joy in the Average by Eleanor Ross

We have been sold the story that we can do it all, and that being above average is the path to success and happiness. But now it's time to rediscover our appreciation of the ordinary and the average - that space where most of the best things happen. 

Eleanor Ross was compelled to write 'Good Enough' after her experience of a breakdown. The ensuing burn-out led her to question what drives us to push ourselves so hard that we mentally break. If there's one thing Eleanor has learned, it's better to be average and happy than successful and miserable.

The Fun Habit is the ultimate guide to reaping the serious benefits of fun.

4.  Shy and Mighty by Nadia Finer

Shyness can make us feel isolated, and it's inherently difficult to talk about, yet half of all humans consider themselves shy. Shyness is not weakness, nor a shameful secret. Let's own our shyness, and work with it in the face of the loud, outgoing idea of success. It's time for a softer, more considered approach. Shy people have unique qualities and skills, so let's nurture and appreciate them. This book gives shy people the support and understanding they need to step out of the shadows.
