The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondō
"What I liked about this book: The author is an organization specialist and I can just picture her on "Hoarders" helping people discard a lifetime of junk. Her theory is that everything you own should spark joy in your life. And if it doesn't, you..." Read more of this review »

Anyone who knows me will snicker if not laugh out loud that I enjoyed this book as much as I did, but I really did thoroughly enjoy it. Maybe because I'm ADHD or maybe it's my appreciation for competence and/or maybe because, generally speaking, I'm ...more

I loved this book. Reading it the same time as reading his memoir, his voice screams from the pages. Like his memoir, this is a book about living lies while telling the truth, we'll sort of telling the Truth. Bright people, from my point of view, can ...more

Reads like a Hemingway novel. I understand he wrote a sequel which I'm anxious to read since this book is an account of his teenage years. The abuse and neglect he suffers arouses my compassion, however, I must admit I dislike him. I don't see how he ...more

Maps of Meaning by Jordan B. Peterson
"A few weeks ago my three year old daughter and I went to the library to check out some books. Usually she heads right to the section with Curious George while I peruse the kids books, looking for new and fun stories. Lately she’s been randomly gra..." Read more of this review »

George Orwell
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
George Orwell, Animal Farm

George Orwell
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell, 1984

George Orwell
“No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”
George Orwell, Animal Farm

George Orwell
“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”
George Orwell, 1984

“My friends tell me that I have a tendency to point out problems without offering solutions, but they never tell me what I should do about it.”
Daniel M. Gilbert, Stumbling on Happiness
