It's the last weekend of summer, the perfect time to wrap up summer reading and get in school-mode. Adam Grant, professor of management and psychology at the Wharton School, shares seven new books to read about work and psychology.

"Presence" by Amy Cuddy: Cuddy writes about how we can achieve success by changing how we carry ourselves.
"Unfinished Business" by Anne-Marie Slaughter: The CEO of the New America Foundation talks about how individuals and policy makers can push for more gender equality.
"Superforecasting" by Philip Tetlock and Dan Gardner: This behavior science approach examines how we can better predict major events.
"Friend and Foe" by Adam Galinsky and Maurice Schweitzer: This book breaks down cooperation and competition, from social media to gender differences.
"Leadership BS" by Jeff Pfeffer: Leadership advice is generally as good as dirty dishwater, and the wrong people are in power.
"Rising Strong" by Brene Brown: Looking at the concept of bravery, how can we start our own personal revolutions?
"Broadcasting Happiness" by Michele Gielan: Happiness isn't just about individuals, it's about sharing with others.
