Just popping by with a quick reading recap from this last week. I had a chance to work on my #0by16 stack a bit. Slowly, but surely I am making progress.
Here are some high level thoughts on each of the books that I read:
A memoir that discusses a Jewish family and the choices they make to prevent what we believe will be tragedy and loss. A moving book this book was filled with some intense emotional experiences as the family tries to deal with the decisions they made. The book is certainly thought provoking and will provide readers with much to consider as they flip through the pages.
The Paleo Cardiologist
This is a book about identifying symptoms related to heart disease and how to prevent it. The book is full of medical information that is presented in a simple understandable way. I appreciated the “live well’ and ‘action plan’ tips that this book has to offer for its readers. A relatively quick read, this book is one that you can easily pick back up again and again, as there is a lot of information/suggestions to keep track of.
The Hunter’s Prayer
A thriller from the beginning, this book is the story of Ella. In this story, Ella’s life changes from a happy place to an extreme tragedy that flips the world around her on its head. Ella must embrace what is happening around her in order to get to the bottom of her situation. Despite, a few violent passages, this book does keep the reader wanting to know what happened right up until the end.
An interesting book about the middle class in America. This book was an interesting read that discusses strategies that America can take to move itself forward in the global economy. I appreciated the author’s use of specific examples to articulate his point. For those individuals interested in strategy and politics (not necessarily a specific party, but in general), this may be the book for you.
