Eat to Love: A Mindful Guide to Transforming Your Relationship with Food, Body, and LifeEat to Love: A Mindful Guide to Transforming Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Life by Jenna Hollenstein

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An important book that applies Buddhist principles to an intuitive eating approach while being practical and compassionate. A strong criticism of diet culture and "magical eating" that many should find valuable. I feel like I will be consulting this book often and highly recommend the book.

[Caveat: My wife has been in therapy with the author and found her helpful.]

CicadaCicada by Shaun Tan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A powerful fable of conformity and corporate culture. Tan's artwork, as usual, is stunning and the story will resonate with many readers, especially older ones. Highly recommended.

In a Dream You Saw a Way to SurviveIn a Dream You Saw a Way to Survive by Clementine von Radics

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A strong collection of personal poetry about dark moments mostly in relationships. Brave and powerful words by a poet I was unfamiliar with but who I will now seek out.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this book through Netgalley.]

In Praise of Wasting TimeIn Praise of Wasting Time by Alan Lightman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


In this book based on his TED talk, Alan Lightman extols the the virtues of downtime, time devoted to letting the mind wander and be at its most creative. In a culture that practically worships speed and productivity, it's a bit sad that this book is even necessary, but Lightman, a scientist, does his research on both our culture and the virtue of slowing down to think. A short, quick and worthwhile read.
