This is one of the most affordable, concise self-help books on the market. From the world of ducks, Maggie Dent draws some simple life wisdom for busy people, nudging readers to see how some things in life can be changed for the better. Black Duck Wisdom is a light-hearted yet insightful read, and the best part is it can be read in one sitting in the smallest room in the house.
Every day is a new beginning. How you begin it is up to you.
