NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “In her book, Melinda tells the stories of the inspiring people she’s met through her work all over the world, digs into the data, and powerfully illustrates issues that need our attention—from child marriage to gender inequity in the workplace.” — President Barack Obama “The Moment of Lift is an urgent call to courage. It changed how I think about myself, my family, my work, and what’s possible in the world. Melinda weaves together vulnerable, brave storytelling and compelling data to make this one of those rare books that you carry in your heart and mind long after the last page.” — Brené Brown, Ph.D., author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Dare to Lead “Melinda Gates has spent many years working with women around the world. This book is an urgent manifesto for an equal society where women are valued and recognized in all spheres of life. Most of all, it is a call for unity, inclusion and connection. We need this message more than ever.” — Malala Yousafzai "Melinda Gates's book is a lesson in listening. A powerful, poignant, and ultimately humble call to arms." — Tara Westover, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Educated A debut from Melinda Gates, a timely and necessary call to action for women's empowerment. “How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings – and especially for women?

Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, you need to stop keeping women down. In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares lessons she’s learned from the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world.

From the award-winning and bestselling creators of Drawn Together comes the fantastic tale of a magical elevator that will lift your spirits--and press all the right buttons! Iris loves to push the elevator buttons in her apartment building, but when it's time to share the fun with a new member of the family, she's pretty put out. That is, until the sudden appearance of a mysterious new button opens up entire realms of possibility, places where she can escape and explore on her own. But when she's forced to choose between going at it alone or letting her little brother tag along, Iris finds that sharing a discovery with the people you love can be the most wonderful experience of all. Using their dynamic comics-inspired storytelling, acclaimed author Minh Lê and Caldecott Medal-winning artist Dan Santat carry readers on a journey of ups, downs, and twists and turns that will send hearts--and imaginations--soaring. *"Like Sendak's Max, Iris uses anger to lift her away from the real world into jungles and outer space. And she returns to her room changed. Breaking the bounds of a traditional picture book, Iris' creative growth elevates us all."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review *"An excellent choice for individual consumption or as a read-aloud, this story is sure to get creative juices flowing."--School Library Connection, starred review

The best combination of four loadings on a delta wing with subsonic leading edges is calculated for several Mach numbers as a numerical example. The loadings considered have finite pressures everywhere on the plan form. At each Mach number the optimum combination of the four non-singular loadings has about the same drag coefficient as a flat plate with leading-edge thrust.

Describes four mindsets that, together, enable us to have a consistently positive influence Accessible but rooted in the latest research in psychology and social science Features engaging personal stories that bring key principles to life in business situations, at home, and in the community Just as the Wright Brothers combined science and practice to finally achieve the dream of flight, Ryan and Robert Quinn combine research and experience to demonstrate how we can elevate ourselves and the situations and people around us to greater heights of integrity, openness, and achievement - the psychological equivalent of aerodynamic lift. Solidly based in the social science literature - with special focus on recent advances in the study of positive psychology and strengths-based leadership, as well as Robert Quinn's groundbreaking work on organizational effectiveness - Lift identifies four mindsets that will enable us become a consistently positive influence in every aspect of our lives: being purpose-centered, internally-directed, other-focused and externally-open. Separate chapters explore each of these components in depth, analyzing the psychological and social factors that keep people from applying them and what we can do to overcome those obstacles. Although there are exercises and tools throughout to help you understand and apply the authors' lift framework - as well as compelling stories of personal and professional applications of lift - this is not a book about tactics. Rather, the Quinns challenge you to ask: What can I do to be a positive influence?
