1. David and Goliath, Malcolm Gladwell
Brilliant, mind-flipping exploration of underdogs and why small class sizes, three strikes you are out and Yale are always good for you. His explanation of "near misses" in terms of war and trauma is a relevation.
2. The Stalking of Julia Gillard, Kerry-Anne Walsh
Page turner looking into some very dark days, toxic types and misogyny at work.
3. Tracks, Robyn Davidson
Awe-inspiring, riveting journey across Australia (I think I am the last person to read this).
4. I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and was Shot By the Taliban, Malala Yousafzai
A true story of being born a girl in Pakistan and wanting to get a good education.
