BOOK EXCERPT:

A true story of midlife transformation by the Napa Valley entrepreneur who put California’s wine industry on the map. In 1965, after a notorious family feud, Robert Mondavi—then fifty-two years old—was thrown out of his family’s winery. Far from defeated, Mondavi was dedicated to a vision of creating a superior wine. What has happened since that fateful day is one of the greatest success stories of American business. Today, the Robert Mondavi Winery is one of the most respected in the world, and Mondavi is the man who is most responsible for the worldwide recognition of American wine making, as well as changing America’s palate for fine wine and food. In Harvests of Joy, Mondavi shares how his passion for excellence helped him to achieve this extraordinary position, one he reached not without pain and sacrifice. With invaluable insider tips on his approach to both wine making and running a business, Mondavi’s inspirational story is “a grand example of the fact that in America you can pretty much be, do, or accomplish, whatever you set out to” (Ventura County Star).

BOOK EXCERPT:

Robert Mondavi was a true American pioneer. At a time when no one believed that we in America could ever create world-class wines, Robert stuck out his jaw and said, "Oh yeah? Well, I'll show you! And show us he did. With vision, passion, and a galvanizing sense of mission, Robert led the rise of the Napa Valley from a dusty California backwater into one of the great wine-producing regions of the world, standing proudly next to Burgundy, Bordeaux, Tuscany and the Loire Valley. And that was just the beginning. Guided by his Swiss-born wife Margrit, Robert joined hands with fellow pioneers like Julia Child, Alice Waters and Thomas Keller and turned the Napa Valley into a dream destination for wine and food lovers from all around the globe. Last year, some 3.5 million visitors came to the valley to taste The Good Life, California style, and also to enjoy the very best in American art, film, and music. This is an intimate portrait of Robert and what made him so special, as a leader, as a creator, and as a man with a unique ability to inspire others to build their dreams and come join his cause. And no one knows the subject better than author Paul Chutkow. Paul ghost-wrote Robert's acclaimed memoir "Harvests of Joy," published in 1998, and the two men remained close throughout the final ten years of Robert's life. With warmth and objectivity, Paul shows us Robert and Margrit in their times of triumph, and also in their times of heartbreak and sorrow, when their winery was suddenly and brutally sold out from under them, and the result is a book that is sure to stir hearts and earn a vast following throughout the world of wine and far beyond.

Inc's "10 Most Inspiring Books of 2018"Real Simple's "Best Books of 2018"Elle's "29 Best Books of 2018" TechCrunch's "Favorite Things of 2018" "This book has the power to change everything! Writing with depth, wit, and insight, Ingrid Fetell Lee shares all you need to know in order to create external environments that give rise to inner joy."--Susan Cain, author of Quiet and founder of Quiet Revolution Designer and TED star Ingrid Fetell Lee presents groundbreaking research to explain how making small changes to your surroundings can create extraordinary happiness in your life. Have you ever wondered why we stop to watch the orange glow that arrives before sunset, or why we flock to see cherry blossoms bloom in spring? Is there a reason that people -- regardless of gender, age, culture, or ethnicity -- are mesmerized by baby animals, and can't help but smile when they see a burst of confetti or a cluster of colorful balloons. We are often made to feel that the physical world has little or no impact on our inner joy. Increasingly, experts urge us to find balance and calm by looking inward -- through mindfulness or meditation -- and muting the outside world. But what if the natural vibrancy of our surroundings is actually our most renewable and easily accessible source of joy? In Joyful, designer Ingrid Fetell Lee explores how the seemingly mundane spaces and objects we interact with every day have surprising and powerful effects on our mood. Drawing on insights from neuroscience and psychology, she explains why one setting makes us feel anxious or competitive, while another fosters acceptance and delight -- and, most importantly, she reveals how we can harness the power of our surroundings to live fuller, healthier, and truly joyful lives.
