TIME ANXIETY de Chris Guillebeau

From the bestselling author of several books including The $100 Startup, an exploration of the psychic damage caused by always feeling behind, second-guessing choices about how we spend our time and struggling to fully relax.

Crown Currency, September 2025

This is a book for those who feel like there’s never enough time for the things that matter, who fear they’re too late for something important in their life, and who sense there’s something they should be doing right now—but aren’t sure what it is. This experience is called time anxiety. It affects some of us more than others, and it’s different from diagnosed conditions such as ADHD and autism. Productivity hacks and “time management” strategies tend to mask the problem, ultimately doing more harm than good. This is because of a simple truth: time is limited, but desire is limitless. Facing this truth is the first step to making peace with our inability to do everything.

In TIME ANXIETY, Guillebeau will guide readers towards eliminating unnecessary obligations and establishing a fundamentally different relationship with the clock.

Chris Guillebeau is also the author of Wall Street Journal bestsellers The Happiness of Pursuit and Born for This. Over the course of a lifetime of self-employment and side hustling, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday.

A NEW CAPITALISM will explore what many experts consider to be a “turning point” in capitalism, a profound shift away from neo-liberalism and a profit-above-all mentality in corporate thinking and practice to systems where companies are becoming more responsible to their countries, employees, and communities. This new way of governance is happening right now and is not driven by altruism but is the natural outcome of vast technological innovation, the effects of the climate crisis and changing social norms. It is the authors’ contention that this re-imagining, will unleash a period of wealth generation and shared prosperity and is emblematic of capitalism’s essential dynamism and ability to reconfigure itself.

Because of their standing and thus exceptional connections, the authors have conducted extensive and invaluable interviews with over 50 the global business leaders, including Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan, Larry Fink, co-founder and CEO of BlackRock and Dick Parsons, former chairman and CEO of Time Warner and Citibank, who will provide compelling insights and often visionary thinking, almost no readers otherwise would be privy to. Challenging the perspectives of the right and the left, the book will examine the emerging consensus about the role these large companies should play and the benefits to the long-term health of businesses that are possible. It’s critical that the authors write from the perspective of business owners themselves, bringing pragmatism and level-headedness to a discussion that is often paralyzed with rigid ideological posturing.

Seth Levine, a partner and co-founder at Boulder, CO-based Foundry Venture Capital, is one of the world’s leading venture capitalists. In addition to his work at Foundry, Seth actively supports entrepreneurs around the country and across the world, serving as an advisor to funds and companies throughout the United States, Africa, and the Middle East.

Too many women depend on external approval to define their self worth. While that desire might initially drive people to high-performing jobs, it secretly sabotages their chances of the fulfilling life and career they desire. Brooke Taylor has transformed the lives of more than 5,000 high-achieving women in business by healing what she calls “the success wound” – the pain that comes from a person’s mistaking success for her self-worth.

Working with high-level executives at companies like Uber, Microsoft, and Google, Brooke’s advice has helped clients land promotions, advance into leadership roles, negotiate raises, and start businesses with millions of dollars in funding.

But Brooke’s process doesn’t just lead to career success. By helping women find self-worth outside of their career, she also helps to heal crippling burnout, alleviate chronic anxiety, increase confidence and self-assurance, and create healthy new habits that clients actually stick to.

Brooke’s five-step process to help women succeed in their careers and in their relationships with themselves is proven. Now, in her first book, she’ll share that process with women around the globe – showing them how to separate self-worth from success, without having to sacrifice.

A true story of triumph by award-winning business leader, impact investor, and educator James Rhee that will inspire and empower us to transform our lives and our businesses with the simple and yet powerful combination of kindness and math.

lead change with kindness (plus a little math)
by James Rhee
HarperOne, April 2024

In kindergarten, James Rhee received a toy red helicopter in gratitude for a simple act of kindness—the innocent generosity of sharing his lunch. Nearly four decades later, the true meaning and lesson from this memory helped him overcome indescribable hurdles as both a first time CEO and son to a dying father. Combining the radical common sense of a child with the knowledge of an experienced private equity investor and law school graduate, James led one of the most dramatic reinventions in business history. Partnering with Black women across America, James led Ashley Stewart, a twice-bankrupt retailer with no WiFi, from the jaws of liquidation to a transcendent success that inspired a world seeking a different way. And, in the process, he was able to reconcile his own complicated past and see his mom for who she truly was.

Combining the clarity and imagination we had as children with some basic business metrics, Rhee composed a system he calls “Kindness and Math.” It’s a simple solution to the dissatisfaction and worry so many of us feel, an intuitive response to the gnawing uncertainty we face daily as we meander through our lives and struggle to understand why we might feel so out of control in our professional and personal lives. red helicopter—a parable for our times exposes the root cause for these feelings and encourages us to embrace a few key principles to reorient our lives, organizations, and the world to reflect the best in us. In this remarkable book, Rhee provides the tools we can use to:

•             Embrace agency by identifying the obstacles quietly holding us back

•             Construct a balance sheet of our true assets and liabilities

•             Create and measure “goodwill,” the ultimate collective good

•             Lead systems transformation with a framework comprised of small, scalable acts

•             Drive financial profitability with little to no investment of money

•             Unlock the value of difference and the unpredictable

•             and more

Rhee’s fresh thinking emerged from an emotional journey in which both the professional and personal intersected and became one. The financial uncertainty, family tragedy, and soul-searching he endured, after the whole world left him and Ashley Stewart for dead, led him to create a simple and scalable solution to the struggles that ail us all. This quiet and powerful ode to humanity is sorely needed in today’s troubled world.

James Rhee is an acclaimed impact investor, founder, CEO, goodwill strategist, thought leader, and educator, who empowers people, brands, and organizations by marrying capital with purpose. He bridges the emotional with the mathematical, and gives permission for us to be human. A long-time private equity investor, James also serves as a founding member of JP Morgan Chase’s Advancing Black Pathways, a charter member of Ashoka’s Entrepreneur-to-Entrepreneur Network, and former Chair of the Innovation Committee of the National Retail Federation. In addition to his private sector endeavors, Rhee teaches at Howard University (where he serves as the Johnson Chair of Entrepreneurship), MIT Sloan School of Management, and Duke School of Law. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
