Great format for a great graphic novel.

The stories are separate and finally come together in a fairly predictable way. It is a bit didactic, but imagine yourself a very bright, curious, thoughtful and sensitive 14, 15 or 16 year-old struggling with the usual thoughts and feelings of angst and hormones and loneliness and you stumble onto this book and identify with the character (or at least like her) and suddenly you're not the only one thinking these thoughts or dreaming these ideas. They aren't being forced on you by a teacher, but they're shared through a book. You are not alone, there are entire schools of thought written about these thoughts and feelings.

The three horizons framework is used often in consulting to provide a practical working framework for transformative change. This book provides a solid description of the type of thinking behind this framework. It's a good read and it doesn't stop at H1, H2 and H3 like most short articles on three horizons do.
Good insights on how to incentivize yourself to develop good habits and give up on toxic ones. A blend of psychology, science and common sense presented in a way that sticks.
Things you should know about me. I don't live in New York City. I don't work in a publishing house. I know very little about anything. This book is magical. That - is all I have to say. If I could scream...I would shout!

Honestly.....sometimes this is impossible to read. Or maybe it's just because I would read it at 7:00am on the LIRR, just dosing off every few pages, like everyone on the train. But I felt like it was worth it. I don't know if my life is any different. But books are a stupid thing to rely on for change.

The book was written in the 60's and it's quite amusing to read about printers and news papers as a thing of the far future. Overall I liked the way the Moon people outsmarted the Earth politicians. It's an interesting treaty of politics on top of a nice scify read.
A classic introduction to zazen and Zen meditation.
An open mind is required to read this as many of the philosophy's tenets can be counter-intuitive at first glance.
Overall I found this to be a great window into a radically different way of life

My foray into the amazing world conjured up by Terry Pratchett continues. I didn't know there were other books preceding this one, and with his hundreds of titles in the wild, I had no guiding hand to tell me where I needed to start, so off to the world of Borogravia, located somewhere in Discworld, I imagine.
This book is hard to describe in the same words we use. If I was to describe how much I loved it, I'd honestly have to spend half of the rest of my life inventing a new language and the other half figuring out how to pronounce all the rudimentary words.
It's a pretty light read that you could probably finish overnight. If you can, pick up the audiobook by Steven Briggs. He does a killer job.
I'm a big Mark Lawrence fan after being introduced to him through The Red Queen's War series, but this book wasn't like that. It was different in the way black chocolate is different from white - the taste isn't similar, but it's still chocolate and lovely.
Going into it, I didn't love it at first, and often felt like it was going to be a predictable mess... but boy was I wrong. The plot progression slaps you at every turn of the page and that ending... I have no words.
If you love fantasy, this is definitely worth the read.

Centered on objects, Autumn was originally supposed to be a series of essays for an "American magazine." I loved it. I've read almost all of Ove's My Struggle memoirs. It was nice to read something so condensed. My friend lost my copy of this book climbing a mountain in Norway.
Before editing this post......I said "series" 4 times.
