Just in time for the holidays, here are five books from 2017 that PSFK recommends, for yourself or as a gift, that offer tremendous insights and advice to help spur positivity, productivity and creativity in the new year.

1. Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss

The latest work from the New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Work Week and Tools of Titans offers insights from over 130   entrepreneurs, athletes, artists, investors and other influential people. The short profiles examine routines of the successful, strategies for overcoming failure, discovering clarity about purpose and many other helpful tools.

2. Hunch: Turn Your Everyday Insights Into The Next Big Thing by Bernadette Jiwa

The new book from Jiwa, a business advisor who has written 6 #1 Amazon bestsellers, examines how people can trust and channel their creative ideas and make them into a reality for the world to enjoy. The book is filled with success stories and writing prompts to help people discover their own full potential.

3. Principles: Life and Work by Ray Dalio

The #1 New York Times bestseller from the billionaire American investor stems from Dalio’s belief that there are fundamental principles that are applicable to all both life and business. The book details the universally applicable tools to help both individuals and organizations make decisions and handle struggles.

4. Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

Written by a Silicon Valley futurist and business consultant, Rest argues against the traditional notion that more work equals a better outcome. The book implements research and examples of writers, painters and thinkers to talk about the importance of “deliberate rest” which allows people to work more effectively and live better lives.

5. The Spark And The Grind: Ignite The Power Of Disciplined Creativity by Erik Wahl

Written by a graffiti artist and entrepreneur, The Spark and the Grind aims to dispute the idea that there are dreamers or doers, and that it is instead necessary for these two concepts, aka the spark and the grind, to combine for true creativity to flourish. By looking at examples of artists, philosophers, scientists and other visionaries, Wahl is able to effectively demonstrate the need for the two to be synthesized.
