A creative agency for those who dare

Books Worth Reading


Deep Work

Cal Newport

“Really interesting research on how we do the best work and why the digital age is robbing us of our deepest work. This radically impacted the way I work, live, and think.” - Courtney


Inner Work

Robert Jordan

“A powerful, practical system for understanding yourself and exploring your subconscious motivations and personal mythology.” - Conor


Searching For and Maintaining Peace

Jacques Philipe

“Anything from Jacques Philipe is so beautiful, but this one really freed me to be led by desire and be free from fear in decision making.” - Courtney


No Matter the Wreckage

Sarah Kay

“Best poems from the best poet. Amazing TED talk. She changed my life. Ask me the story.” - Courtney


Red Rising

Pierce Brown

“It's a hero story about tribe building. Super fun, and a great read for looking at leadership, rituals, beliefs, and symbols and how those function in tribe.” - Anthony


Being Mortal

Atul Gawande

“This book is philosophy and medical study all in one. It has changed the way I ask questions and have conversations. It has formed the way that I care for those who suffer.” - Fiona


The Power of Moments

Chip and Dan Heath

“A classic. Key to much of Sherwood culture and practices.” - Anthony


Anne of Green Gables

L. M. Montgomery

“One of the best woman heroines ever. Learn about cultivating a pure and beautiful imagination, and reconnect with your inner girlhood (for boys: reconnect with why you love femininity).” - Augusta


The Alchemist

Paulo Coehlo

“LOTS of metaphors for the discovery of self and vocation and hearing God. Paulo Coehlo is a master. Charming allegory, sometimes vague, but rich for the mining.” - Courtney


Salt Fat Acid Heat

Samin Nosrat

“Reading right now and WOW WOW WOW! It's not so much a cookbook as a how-to-cook book. Gives you the basic elements of good cooking and empowers you to use them. Also, her story is a case study in empowerment.” - Courtney
