Clean - Overcoming Addiction and Ending America's Greatest Tragedy
With 20 million addicts in America, addiction is one of the most pervasive issues of our time. In Clean, David Sheff goes beyond the popular methods of approaching drug addiction that focuses on behavior and instead focuses on the latest research in psychology, neuroscience, and medicine.
Sheff is the author of the #1 New York Times-bestselling memoir, Beautiful Boy, A Father’s Journey through His Son’s Addiction that chronicled his son’s struggle with addiction and how it impacted his family. His ongoing research and reporting on the science of addiction earned him a place on Time Magazine's list of the World's Most Influential People. Sheff and his family live in Inverness, California.

QUIET: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can't Stop Talking
Susan Cain, author of QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, states, “We live with a value system that I call the Extrovert Ideal—the omnipresent belief that the ideal self is gregarious, alpha, and comfortable in the spotlight." Cain points out that some of the greatest works of art, ideas and inventions were the result of the thinking of “quiet and cerebral people who knew how to tune in to their inner worlds and the treasures to be found there.”
Quiet was featured on the cover of Time Magazine and has been an acclaimed bestseller in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times. It was ranked as one of the Today Show’s top 10 books of 2012, as well as one of People Magazine’s Top 10 books and it was cited as one of the 19 favorite books of the year by O, The Oprah Magazine to name only a few of its accolades.
