This will be my first poetry book that seized me to read and find it incompetent to comprehend on what is intended to convey. Is it proposed to be an affair on death premises, even if that is true wonder of its catered audience. The philosophical thoughts are injected enough to prod on but feel nothing to linger afterwards. I was intimidated by the views of Martin Heidegger about this work and that is what has prompted me to be sneaky. Certain words did capture my vocabulary interest such as nebulous parabolas, orbital methadone and pseudo longinus. This quote feeds the curious minds “There is a sense of reality behind what reality senses”, “Time present and time past are nothing but future to me, I am not mad, chronology just made me look that way”. I need to read more of poetry books to get familiar with the appropriate inference, but as a starter hope this stirs the right notions. Well, it did to me.

Am I deserved to share the inputs of this book considering the author is in fact, famed and credited for delivering the data on food adversaries. It is not new to pin point the politics of food industries, but bringing the necessary changes and privileges requires execution of affirmation which is what is discussed in here along with the places for improvement. Well, I can understand views on carbs-phobia which everyone can easily relate to. But tying the taste buds and replacing meats with plant based alternatives where the ingredients loaded with unknown preservatives raises the true intentions of the food authorities. We the consumers at large are neglecting our social responsibilities to express the motto of such actions and time to get back to our traditional practices. Hope that Marion ideas will be heard and get recognized as she frequently suggests “Vote for the forks” must be the true slogan for the better sustainable ill free living.

Something got into me to explore various philosophical themes of nonfiction books at a stretch. Started with Heidegger and now Derrida, I must admit that this author has delivered what they have promised to offer with less taxing excerpts. The concept of deconstruction is quite complex with un-decidability as the core which might be hard to apply the logic in the everyday stance. May be this is my personal view here, but undeniable of its application to linguistics elements. Is Derrida’s thoughts are like nihilism by any chance or a directive of transcendental solipsism. Either ways good to embrace the revolutionary thinking to succeed in a metaphysical procedure. The quote such as “Writing is a remedy for deficient memory and limited wisdom” and “As for wisdom, you offer your students a mere appearance of it, not the reality” shows his conceptual elaboration and intrusive thought seeding skills. So as an introduction this book serves right. Simply go for it without any second thoughts.

I came across this amazing book in a library a few times and now able to finish it in a single sitting. Well, philosophy has a reputation for being abstract concepts which makes it less engaging to hold the interest, but the author has done a commendable job of simplifying with graphical illustrations. There are many unfamiliar verbose, which has a meaning that are encountered on a day to day life and this shows prominence of the historical settings. I felt like exploring a concoction of traditional territories on a future prospects by providing a space to discover the mystery of existence and essence of life. This persuades me to check the Heidegger’s famous work ‘Being and Time’ and hope to share my views as well. My favorite quote is this “To think of beings as a whole is to think of concealment and absence. Those that do not appear for us and are not presences are unimaginable absences”. Truly astonished and spellbound by its epiphany.

I was looking for some answers for my personal growth and was fortunate to have grabbed this self help book from the library. As the title suggests the core wisdom here is to spend one minute of each day to reveal our true potential for success in life and social well-being. And the ways to go about it is explained through a conversation between two people. I am incapable to give justice in a few words and easy to critique any works, but we are talking about books that are stand apart and makes an impact in some way. This one scores a ton in my honest views for its many positive thoughts, quotes and ideas that is simple to work on. This quote “Within each of us is a part of us that knows what is best for us” and “Now I spend less time trying to be loved by others and more time loving others” stole my heart. I want to end this review with this closing quote “Peace begins with me” and “The answer lies within me”. Spectacular and astounding work by the author.

I learned how the mental illness is berated and still find its issues are deafened. It saddens me to resemble the fate of many silent sufferers and baffles that only when something pertinent is surfaced the focus fades away in the burning problems on hand. Modern psychology gains awareness from the predecessor’s psychological issues of that era and shows the importance of analyzing, then traumas, agony, solitary confinement faced by the world war survivors. This tells us that mental diseases do not cause by chemical imbalances alone since there is no legitimacy claims to prove it. I love this thought seeding point “”Wellness” is too often a thin sugarcoating applied to the bitter pill that late capitalism has prescribed us”. I had a memorable read of this book and request all to check the nuggets of wisdom in here.
