Ellen Kanner believes that with a little thought and preparation, every meal we eat can not only nourish our bodies, but our souls as well. Feeding the Hungry Ghost: Life, Faith, and What to Eat for Dinner is a one-of-a-kind book that ventures far beyond being simply a collection of recipes. In between global vegan recipes that call you to the table, she presents inspiring stories and establishes meaningful connections between the simple act of eating a meal and creating a more vital and nourished soul. The book challenges you to decide if you want to keep reading or start cooking! Ellen is an award-winning food writer and writes the syndicated column Edgy Veggie. She is Huffington Post’s Meatless Monday blogger and has been published in a wide variety of culinary publications.

Why do some people rise quickly up the corporate ladder while others languish at the bottom? Is there something beyond talent, effort, and luck that drives our productivity and accomplishments? In his landmark new book Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success, Wharton professor Adam Grant reveals how the way we choose to interact with others defines our successes and failures. He demolishes the “me-first” worldview and shows the best way to get to the top is not to focus on the solo journey, but to help others rise to the occasion along with you. Grant is the youngest full professor at Wharton Business School. He has been honored as one of BusinessWeek’s favorite professors and one of the world’s 40 top business professors under 40.
