Your Best Body after Baby by Jen Torborg

Basic but good info

Recommended by my post natal physical therapist. Not a lot of depth and most of it already familiar. Torberg is a good communicator. I was just hoping for something way nerdier. Whets my appetite for Katy Bowman's work.

A History of Future Cities by Daniel Brook

Fascinating parallel histories of St. Petersburg, Shanghai, Mumbai, and Dubai. I don't know if this book could have been written and published today, a few short years later, with the rise of "grievance studies" without substantially more apologies f ...more

Alone with God by Richard Wurmbrand
Rate this book
Clear rating
I loved Wurmbrand's collection of sermons--ironic, despairing, serene, supernaturally sane and rather insane, hopeful, and dryly humorous. Wurmbrand composed and memorized these brief sermons while in solitary confinement, enduring daily beatings, an ...more

Renovation of the Heart by Dallas Willard

A note to potential readers: Willard is a philosopher by training. Hence, he will seem dense if you are out of practice. You will find here careful arguments and definitions of terms, true to the philosophical discipline. That said, Willard is a clea ...more
The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan
"In this book, written in 1405, the author is given examples (by Lady Reason, Lady Rectitude and Lady Justice)to help erect a 'city of ladies'. In part it is a metaphor of the city being built up of the reputations of great women, but it is also me..." Read more of this review »

The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan
Rate this book

I thoroughly enjoyed Christine de Pizan's writing and her vigorous defense of female honor against the churlish boors of her day. It's also nice to know that her father and husband valued her intellect and her virtue. It's also remarkable that she wa ...more

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

I grabbed the library's abridged translation by Princess Alexandra Kropotkin. I only just realized this. Oh well. But it was still 696 pages and I galloped through them in 11 days. The chapters were short and it was easy to fit a chapter in here and ...more
Heather Denigan and 495 other people liked Whitaker's review of War and Peace:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
"When I was growing up, the conventional wisdom was that War and Peace was the sine qua non of difficult books: the scope, the length, OMG the length! Conquering this Everest was The Test of whether you were a Man/Reader.

I have now read it. Thump..." Read more of this review »

Mario Vargas Llosa
“Almost seventy years later I remember clearly how the magic of translating the words in books into images enriched my life, breaking the barriers of time and space...”
Mario Vargas Llosa

John Piper
“Long looking with admiration produces change. From your heroes you pick up mannerisms and phrases and tones of voice and facial expressions and habits and demeanors and convictions and beliefs. The more admirable the hero is and the more intense your admiration is, the more profound will be your transformation. In the case of Jesus, he is infinitely admirable, and our admiration rises to the most absolute worship. Therefore, when we behold him as we should, the change is profound.”
John Piper, God Is the Gospel: Meditations on God's Love as the Gift of Himself

Whittaker Chambers
“Experience had taught me that innocence seldom utters outraged shrikes. Guilt does. Innocence is a mighty shield, and the man or woman covered by it, is much more likely to answer calmly: 'My life is blameless. Look into it, if you like, for you will find nothing.' That is the tone of innocence.”
Whittaker Chambers, Witness

C.S. Lewis
“There is nothing like suspense and anxiety for barricading a human's mind against the Enemy. He wants men to be concerned with what they do; our business is to keep them thinking about what will happen to them.”
C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

Yves Saint-Laurent
“We must never confuse elegance with snobbery”
Yves Saint Laurent
