The Inner Self by Hugh Mackay

In the lead up before attending a Readings in Conversation Event at which Hugh Mackay introduced his new book, The Way We Are, (I now have my signed copy for Justin and me and I can’t wait to read it!) I returned to an earlier book of his, The Inner Self, 2020. There is a… Read More

Breath by James Nestor

It might seem peculiar to recommend a book on the science and art of breathing – surely this is something we simply sub-consciously do. Personally, I feel I’ve got a pretty good grasp of breathing and haven’t skipped too many breaths over the past 55 years! However, there were three combined elements which encouraged me… Read More

Atlas of the Heart by Brené Brown

“Having access to the right words can open up entire universes.” The books of Brené Brown, the renowned research professor at the University of Houston, exemplify the full import of these words.

The Suitcase by Jan Daniels

Jan Daniels’ book, with the sub-title, One Woman’s Struggle to Save Herself, is compelling reading.

Pick Your Own Nose by Robert Boddington and Jack Robertson

I hope this book title grabbed your attention, as it grabbed mine.  This is a different type of book recommendation this month, and it is actually a recommendation of an entire series of six children’s books in the ‘Sleep with Kip’ range. This series of books has become my most gifted present for young parents… Read More

Whispers of Resilience compiled by Justine Martin

This collection of personal stories of people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), compiled by Justine Martin — who also has MS – and released in 2023, is compelling reading.

The Obstacle is The Way by Ryan Holiday

  Previously I have written a book recommendation on Courage is Calling by Ryan Holiday as blog 84. I continue now writing one for The Obstacle is the Way, another of his Stoic Virtues series. To some extent, I feel that I am late to the table in discovering Holiday’s books, especially as I notice… Read More
