Recent Reading (December 2018)
Atomic Habits (James Clear)
A surprisingly refreshing look at habit formation and eradication. James Clear has blogged on personal development and habits for a few years now, always with stellar advice.
It has all culminated in this great guide to building and tearing down good and bad habits respectively.
The Hitcherhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams)
How did it take me so long to get around to this one? What a deserved holder of the 'classic' title. Amazingly readable tale with top-drawer humour. Just so fun!
Daring Greatly (Brené Brown)
After coming across Brené's great Ted Talks recently, I wanted to hear more of what she preaches on vulnerability. A great lesson, that maybe didn't need stretching out so much - but it's certainly a message that needs spreading.
A Colder War (Charles Cumming)
I've always had a penchant for spy novels, and Charles Cumming is my current fix. Great characters, realistic action, and unforeseen twists and turns. Love it.
The Courage to Be Disliked (Ichiro Kishimi)
A socratic-conversation style introduction to Adlerian psychology, an often overlooked alternative to Freud's dominant theories in the 20th century. Rang true with a lot of the current trend of thought in terms of personal responsibility and Stoic philosophy.
