Factfulness by Hans Rosling
Rate this book
Clear rating
At the beginning, I felt very ambivalent about this: It felt like Hans Rosling is making some very good points — our thinking being outdated and biased — but at the same time, the whole book seemed like a pat on the back implying: "The world's gettin ...more

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami
Rate this book

This book is so evocative of meditation which has been a recurring topic for the entirety of this 6-week Asian trip of mine that I’ve devoured it on. Don’t analyse, don’t try to understand rationally; instead, experience the narrative sentence after ...more
