Omniquest Selections 2023-2024

Fall 2023 — Nation of Victims by Vivek Ramaswamy

Vivek Ramaswamy is the New York Times bestselling author of Woke Inc. and a 2024 presidential candidate. Leaders have called Ramaswamy “the most compelling conservative voice in the country” and “one of the towering intellects in America,” and this book reveals why: he spares neither left nor right in this scathing indictment of the victimhood culture at the heart of America’s national decline. This fearless, provocative book is for readers who dare to look in the mirror and question their most sacred assumptions about who we are and how we got here. Intricately tracing history from the fall of Rome to the rise of America, weaving Western philosophy with Eastern theology in ways that moved Jefferson and Adams centuries ago, this book describes the rise and the fall of the American experiment itself—and hopefully its reincarnation. As the nominator for this selection said, “Ramaswamy provides powerful insights as to what is happening in our political world today.”

 

Spring 2024 — Leadership and Self-Deception by The Arbinger Institute

Since its original publication in 2000, Leadership and Self-Deception has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon. The book’s central insight–that the key to leadership lies not in what we do but in who we are–has proven to have powerful implications not only for organizational leadership but in readers’ personal lives as well. Leadership and Self-Deception uses an entertaining story everyone can relate to about a man facing challenges at work and at home to expose the fascinating ways that we blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts to achieve and increase happiness. Readers will discover what millions already have learned – how to consistently tap into and act on their innate sense of what’s right, dramatically improving all of their relationships. The selection committee stated, “The concepts in Leadership and Self-Deception are nothing short of life-changing, from both a professional and personal perspective.”
