Reading List Suggestions?

Hi all!

I'm soliciting suggestions for prevention-related books. Not just for myself, but for Coalition members & partners as well. Thinking of putting together a little "lending library" of sorts :)

Here's what I've got so far:

The Nurture Effect - Biglan
The Deepest Well - Burke-Harris
Unbroken Brain - Szalavitz
I Hear You - Sorensen
The Cult of Pharmacology - DeGrandpre
Chasing the Scream - Hari

Thanks in advance!

This is a great idea! A book I have heard a lot about, but have not yet read myself, is "Hope Rising: How the Science of Hope Can Change You Life" by Casey Gwinn, J.D & Chan Hellman, Ph.D. Since we have added Hope Scale questions to the Healthy Youth Survey this could be a very relavant reading!
