Subti­tled ‘How Suc­cess­ful Peo­ple Start Ev­ery Day In­spired’, this re­lent­lessly up­beat book from Ben­jamin Spall and Michael Xan­der aims to en­cour­age early starts, healthy break­fasts and the sort of work­outs to turn you into the next Sh­eryl Sandberg.

There are short in­ter­views with ul­tra suc­cess­ful peo­ple, in­clud­ing Huff­in­g­ton Post founder Ari­anna Huff­in­g­ton who, on wak­ing, takes “a minute to breathe deeply, be grate­ful and set my in­ten­tion for the day”.

Ed Cat­mull, pres­i­dent of Pixar, starts his day with a cup of cof­fee made of triple es­presso, three ta­ble­spoons of co­coa pow­der and two sweet­en­ers. “I’ve heard this makes you think bet­ter,” he says. “I have no idea if this is true but it tastes good.”
