New York--From “Superbosses” to modern-day feminists to yet more advice on how to be happy--these are a few of National Jeweler’s selections for the month of November.

Our editors browsed the virtual stacks of book discussion site Good Reads for relatively new releases that might be beneficial to small business owners.

Here are four picks retailers might want to check out this month.

20161101 Superbosses
1. Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent
Sydney Finkelstein

The author explores the common approach that great leaders take to finding, nurturing, leading and even letting go of great people, people that the author Sydney Finkelstein labels as “Superbosses.”

Leaders cited in the book include football coach Bill Walsh, television executive Lorne Michaels, restaurateur Alice Waters, technology CEO Larry Ellison and Ralph Lauren.

Superbosses, which was published in February, is 272 pages.

20161101 Feminist
2. I Call Myself a Feminist: The View from Twenty-Five Women Under Thirty
Victoria Pepe (editor), Rachel Holmes (editor), Amy Annette (editor), Martha Mosse (editor) and Alice Stride (editor)

Published in November, I Call Myself a Feminist contains the viewpoints of young journalists, activists, comedians, authors and engineers on what being a feminist today means to them.

It’s not necessarily a book about running a business, but it is a book that can help give business owners insight into the minds of young women who are members of the millennial generation.

I Call Myself a Feminist is 269 pages.

20161101 Happiness-Track
3. The Happiness Track: How to Apply the Science of Happiness to Accelerate Your Success
Emma Seppälä

In The Happiness Track, Emma Seppälä aims to demolish the theories that we need to do everything that’s thrown at us perfectly, that success depends on drive and talent and that achievement cannot come without stress.

Instead, Seppälä argues, finding happiness and fulfillment actually is the most productive thing people can do to thrive professionally, and her book contains tips for being happy.

The Happiness Track is 224 pages.
