Reading Leadership 101, by John C. Maxwell. She's a neuroscientist but has been working as an Executive Director at a nonprofit. Something she's learned from the book--in order to succeed, you can't just take, you have to give, too. The motivation that drives you, you have to find a way to put it into other people.

Recently she read The Tipping Point, by Malcolm Gladwell, which she found interesting to read, but didn't think had anything new to say, though it's good to have it all in front of you, complied in book form.

Her favorite book of all time--Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy, by Jostein Gaarder. She found it complex and influential in a lot of ways. The book explores who we are, where we are going, and where we come from--deep questions we all have, and, it's philosophically understandable.
