Iced almond milk lattes. Lengthy essays from The Ringer. YOU ?. These ( & acoustic sounds ) are just a few of my favorite things in the Eve. Let’s make Weekends great again, shall we? Partying and heavy drinking can wait. Check out these awesome books that will change your life forever(may be they won’t ) 😛
The Power Of Habit — Charles Duhigg
This book delves into some science behind the notion of “habits”. It hands out the “scientific” process of changing habits. In between, there are interesting stories of how individuals, societies and companies can make the best use out of their habits or other people’s habits.
Gunmetal Gray — Mark Greaney
I love reading a book that you can barely put down because the action is non stop. Greaney is fantastic with the espionage genre having helped take over the Jack Ryan franchise after my Tom Clancey died. An absolute blockbuster full of action, Guns, Bombs & Codes.
Being Mortal — Atul Gawande
If you’re not afraid of dying, you’re either lucky or lying.
This book gave me hee-bee-jees! Did I really need to know as I age my aorta will get crunchy and my shrinking brain will rattle around in my skull? Or the disgusting details of the downhill spiral of my teeth.Its my second book to read by Gawande, and i promise you will love it, especially if your i med school 😀
The Gene, An Intimate History — S. Mukherjee
I received a copy of The Gene from a friend, and am forever thankful to him. A book combination of science, history, and stories written by Mukherjee a cancer physician researcher, a stem cell biologist + cancer geneticist, its supposed to be boring science but to much surprise it was compulsively page turning and fascinating. It offers a magnificent history of the gene and a response to the defining question of the future:
What becomes of being human when we learn to “read” and “write” our own genetic information?
Milk and Honey — Rupi Kaur
Ladies, yo gonna love this poetry collection ,
Here is my favorite line:
“i want to apologize to all the women
i have called pretty before i’ve called them intelligent or brave,
i am sorry.
i made it sound as though something as simple as what you’re born with ( beauty )
is the most you have to be proud of
when your spirit has crushed mountains
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re pretty
but because you are so much more than that”
When Breath Becomes Air — Paul Kalanithi
At the age of thirty-six, completing a decade’s worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor making a living treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. Just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated.
“What is the meaning of life if we’re all just going to die?”
A gasping, desperate, powerful little book, bigger on the inside than outside.It’s a little bit about dying, but more about being alive.
