Latest book reviews - the good, the bad and the ugly
10 days in Jordan is plenty of time to tackle some good books, and that’s not a bad view to have in the background while reading. I got through quite a few. There are some direct and indirect links to the Zestology themes of energy and vitality as you’ll see. And besides, I always find a decent read energising.
Love’s Executioner - Irvine Yalom (5/5) - deeply moving account of renowned psychotherapist’s most significant patients. It might sound dry, give it a go though as it’s not.
Kill ‘Em All - John Niven (5/5) - NB, don’t read if easily offended, or offended at all actually. Consider yourself warned. Very funny music biz fiction tale.
Love Is Blind - William Boyd (4/5) - cracking story of a 19th century piano tuner (yep) who travels the world.
Unshakeable - Tony Robbins (4/5) - very useful on how best to invest and grow your savings. For anyone who doesn’t ‘get’ stocks/shares/investments, like me, this is good.
The One Thing - Gary Keller (2/5) - admittedly I only got to the end of the free sample on this one, a bit too businessy for me. Seems a good essential point though.
Essentialism, The Disciplined Pursuit Of Less - Stephen Mckeown (2/5) - another free sample which didn’t get fully bought - my thoughts were nice idea but perhaps a bit corporate again. Correct me if I’m wrong though…
