About the YPN Book Club

This isn’t just another book club! It is a virtual peer group of young professionals with an endless desire to connect, engage and learn. Using book topics and the wisdom of leading authors and thought leaders, the Appita YPN Book club provides a platform to gain inspiration, and discuss and share perspectives and insights with your peers. “The YPN book club has been a great place to make and further develop connections with other like-minded YPN members. Sharing different experiences and perspectives with reference to the book has helped me expand my understanding not only of the specific concepts covered but also of how others have been able to conquer their own personal goals. The book club has been very enjoyable and personally inspiring. “ – Robert

2023 Featured Book

 ‘Grit: The Power of Passion and perseverance’ by Angela Duckworth 
In this must-read book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, students, and business people both seasoned and new that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called grit.

Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments.
