I came across this book in the library and made me to snoop which seems like an engaging feast. This book is about developing soft skills on adaptability and understudy. The points highlighted here were easy to comprehend with simple examples taken from the day to day life. What I admired was the flip story at the end of the first portion. The adoption of such creativity is joyful and activity driven. I would recommend this book to anyone wanted a light read and branch out to self help category which serves the purpose of such books.

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 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 picked this book for its size more than the content and tried to focus on the statement by the author, then I thought may be its not bad after all from the simple explanations of self analysis and easy doable exercises at the end of each chapter which proves to be worth the time. I dislike self help books that talk about complex issues with pretentious suggestions when it’s execution is a Herculean task and boring. But the author has made sure to include achievable goals through its approachable tasks. So happy to have chosen this book and kept me well informed till the end. That’s all it matters.

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.

“The TRUTH is, that all of the ‘STUFF’ here on earth we work so hard to buy and accumulate … does not mean a thing.

At the end of the day … people will be cleaning out our ‘STUFF’, going through our ‘STUFF’, figuring out what to do with all of our ‘STUFF’…

This ‘STUFF’ we’ve accumulated in our life.

The only thing of VALUE that remains, are the MEMORIES and what we deposit into others.

May we all learn to spend less time accumulating ‘STUFF’ and spend way more time making MEMORIES.

~ Ignazio Vella ~

This book explains the true meaning of an actual companionship. How a wanderer finds the solace in a street cat is the nutshell of this story. It sounds more like a memoir of the author than a series of events surrounding the cat. This story is so provocative and may influence to adopt a pet sooner..

I had spent an hour in the bank with my dad, as he had to transfer some money. I couldn’t resist myself & asked…

”Dad, why don’t we activate your internet banking?”

”Why would I do that?” He asked…

”Well, then you wont have to spend an hour here for things like transfer.

You can even do your shopping online. Everything will be so easy!”

I was so excited about initiating him into the world of Net banking.

He asked ”If I do that, I wont have to step out of the house?

”Yes, yes”! I said. I told him how even grocery can be delivered at door now and how amazon delivers everything!

His answer left me tongue-tied.

He said ”Since I entered this bank today, I have met four of my friends, I have chatted a while with the staff who know me very well by now.

You know I am alone…this is the company that I need. I like to get ready and come to the bank. I have enough time, it is the physical touch that I crave.

Two years back I got sick, The store owner from whom I buy fruits, came to see me and sat by my bedside and cried.

When your Mom fell down few days back while on her morning walk. Our local grocer saw her and immediately got his car to rush her home as he knows where I live.

Would I have that ‘human’ touch if everything became online?

Why would I want everything delivered to me and force me to interact with just my computer?

I like to know the person that I’m dealing with and not just the ‘seller’. It creates bonds of Relationships.

Does Amazon deliver all this as well?”’

Technology isn’t life..

Spend time with people .. Not with devices

Just finished reading this book by Fredrick Backman. This story deserves a pat for the presentation of weaving the fairy tale into the main plot. I liked Elsa’s questionnaires, It was so inquisitive. At places I found the resemblance of “P.S. I Love you” story structure catering to younger audience. A nice standalone book with some morals thrown in there.
