I'm sold on the author's authority and argument. I'm all in--started following his advice and feel so much better. Down two pant sizes, brain fog is gone, and haven't gotten any of the colds/bugs that the rest of my family has picked up this season. I'm looking at my food choices in a different light, and best of all, my internal medicine physician is on board with the program. - aspires2b

Much in the same way that The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up emphasizes ‘choosing what we want to keep, and not what we want to get rid of,’ [Ikigai] demonstrates that aging could be an opportunity to keep working, keep smiling, keep active, and keep being social even as centenarians.” —KonMari NewsletterMore info →
An invigorating and sometimes sad story. Invigorating and exciting because finally a scientist has found a real, simple solution to a number of ailments that are bedeviling the human race. Sad because it lays bare the duplicity, greed and downright evil intentions of the administrative bodies that are supposedly in charge of our health. One day there may be a class action against the likes of Coca Cola, Kellogg’s, Unilever et al. I hope I see that day!More info →
McDougall redefines the heroic ideal, establishing heroism as a skill set rather than a virtue. . . . [And] schools the reader in the art of the champion. . . . The essential narrative here, the twisty tale of a kidnapping that incredibly goes right, is exciting. It is balanced out with the journalistic account of McDougall’s entry into the world of the hero. His personal quest to ‘rewild the psyche’ might seem an awkward fit with war storytelling. But under McDougall’s sure hand the combination improbably works. Kind of like kidnapping a German general on an island swarming with Nazi troops.” —NPR BooksMore info →

Possibility--that big, all-encompassing, wide-open-door concept--is an art? Well, who doesn't want to be a skilled artist, whether in the director's chair, the boardroom, on the factory floor, or even just in dealing with life's everyday situations? Becoming an artist, however, requires discipline, and what the authors of The Art of Possibility offer is a set of practices designed to "initiate a new approach to current conditions, based on uncommon assumptions about the nature of the world."More info →

I also got the audiobook and have been listening -- but I need a printed copy to refer back to. I am so glad I bought this. My friends are buying it, too!More info →
