For ye’ landlubbers like myself who’ve never answered the call of the sea, here’s a book to dive into (pun intended). Admiral Stavridis chronicles the history of the world’s oceans, demonstrating their importance since time immemorial, while weaving in fascinating anecdotes from his own career with the US Navy. This is an excellent, compelling, and easy to ready book that dispels our terra firma-centric view of the earth. As Admiral Stavridis shows, within these vast waterways lie our past, present, and future.

In Manal Al-Sharif’s new book Daring to Drive, we’re reminded that even in the most dire situations, even when your oppressors seek to hide and mutilate who you are, change is possible. Beginning with her preposterous arrest for driving while being a woman in Saudi Arabia, she then tells us the story of her life, from poverty in Mecca to becoming a leader of a movement. You won't want to put down this extraordinary book. Read it and remember change can come a small step at a time or, as Manal put it, “the rain begins with a single drop.”
