Books!

I love books. I love to hold them, read them, talk about them. My library card has always been one of my most treasured possessions. As a matter of fact one of my first memories is of the book mobile which parked across the street from the post office. How great is that? Do you have a favorite book related memory? I’d love to hear about!

Here’s a preview of the books which are waiting for their turn to be read and shared with you. The goal is to have these done by the month’s end!

“Your Health Destiny: How to Unlock Your Natural Ability to Overcome Illness, Feel Better, and Live Longer” by Eva Selhub, M.D. Off the back cover of this books comes this preview, “From a board-certified internist and lecturer in medicine at Harvard Medical School comes a scientifically proven mind-body prescription that will help you prevent disease, bounce back from illness, and manage life’s ups and downs—all while achieving a greater sense of well-being, now and for the rest of your life.” We shall see.

“Get What’s Yours: The Secrets To Maxing Out Your Social Security” by Kotlikoff, Moeller and Solman. I’m a fan of Paul Solman from PBS and have hopes that this will point out some useful paths for Thrivers. Here’s what I like already – it’s funny! The writing is just great!

“Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (and World Peace)” by Chade-Meng Tan and Daniel Goleman. This is a great, reasonably fast read written by a Google engineer! Tan is the engineer and Goleman is the author of ‘Emotional Intelligence’, a highly regarded text on other types of intelligence. Now, I know I told you it was a fast read, and it is, but with the press of other activities the reading got stalled out at about the half way point – fingers crossed this gets completed soon as its very good so far. Happiness, balance, productivity, mindfulness are all packed into this fun book.

This is my Back to School reading – what’s yours? Do you have a book recommendation you’d like to share? A book you think helped shape your Thriving practices? Please drop me a note so I can add it to my list and maybe even share it with others!

  1. This post brought back such memories ! I loved the bookmobile too! Do they still have them?
    I usually read three books at once:
    1) a classic – currently the Count of Monte Cristo – next up Jekyll and Hyde or Dante’s Inferno
    2) an easy read – usually a mystery
    3 ) non-fiction generally religious type book – might be sayings of Confucius kind of thing but usually some type of spirituality written by a Saint
    I used to read sooooo much more and regret I don’t have as much time now to read!!
