  • Lost in the mirror : an inside look at… by Moskovitz, Richard A.
    ★★★★★

    This is a very serious glimpse of Borderline Personality Disorder as depicted from his career treating and counseling afflicted individuals. The fictionalized cases present a range of the severity/legerity of the trauma and symptoms of the disorder which are vivid, disturbing, and absolutely believable. Anyone with BPD who reads this book should do so under supervision, at first you might find yourself oppositional to reading it but Moskovitz has a way of rendering the emotions accurately in a way that would get under anyone's skin. If you are reading this book for yourself, or for a loved one do not give yourself guilt for doing so. Your goal going into it was understanding and one can leave with a sense of understanding. This book if mis-used for self-flaggelation could be devestating or trigger distructive behavior. I advise reading this book SLOWLY in small doses and checking in with someone if you are a sensitive person who feels this is necessary for your character development.

  • Solve for happy : engineering your path to joy by Gawdat, Mo,
    ★★★★★

    Gawdat's writing style is that of a Techie. Let him lead you through a narrative of success and loss as he presents his unique psychology and conceptualization of happiness. Honestly, I don't think of happiness as a formula and no amount of arguing is going to make me think about happiness and math in the same sentence. What is interesting for me about this book is the rarity of the honest glimpse of the trappings that come with a successful career for Google X. (For example much mention is made of cars as a representation of status but not necessarily a good indicator of happiness) If you are interested in not only happiness; but what the view looks like from the top of a certain ladder this is a good fit for you. Mo Gawdat seems to have tapped into the universal law that "sometimes we get the best results on our most difficult days". If you are a strong work horse and need to step back and re-analyze what makes you tick and where you can go in the future this book will help you get out of your own way and remember the wide angle lense view of yourself.

    ★★★★★

    I am addicted to Work From Home. The lyrics. The funky beat. Play this Album on a Friday night to get your weekend started or insert it as a little fun distraction between serious projects. You might need ten minutes to settle down after listening to it but it's a distraction that's worth it. It is not just another pop album it has some unique layers to the sounds that makes it really pop.

  • Get lifted by Legend, John.
    ★★★★★

    While I have not heard this Special Edition of Get Lifted it should be in keeping with the original. The album tracks are artfully arranged leading through a period of happiness and attraction through a love affair to a (hopefull) reconciliation song and then a balad of regret/lamentation with "Not like I used to" towards the end. Such a wonderful voice and songwriter. The strength of Mr. Legends musicality outshadows the tinge of blatantly sexually themed back to back songs. Lovers agree on one thing: John Legend is the man!

  • Romanza by Bocelli, Andrea.
    ★★★★★

    Romanza album is my favorite Bocelli album. His voice is fresh and timeless. Great way to destress from the day and you can play it from start to finish or just play "Conte Partiro" and "Vivo per lei" is pretty easy to learn if you are into Kareoke. If your goal is to impress someone by learning to sing just one song in Italian then this is your winning ticket.

  • Potíche Trophy wife
    ★★★★★

    Potiche stars the legendary Catherine Deneuve and is a relevent and fun exploration of female roles in politics and at home. Considering the current political landscape this mis-en-scene including its own scandals with charming Tres Francais accents and Gerard Depardieu is sure to please! Brush up on your highschool french!
