Adam I always appreciate your perspective. One thing that I would love to see from you that I often think about myself is not new books but timeless, classic books. Having been in this business for nearly 40 years now, I keep coming back to key ideas and writings that seem to stand the test of time. Would love to hear what you think people keep re-inventing. Keep writing.

An interestingly diverse selection - there's definitely a couple that have grabbed me, including that one, whatever its name is, by some bald guy :) Never Enough is a topic very close to my heart, so I am interested to read her take on the subject.

When in doubt, always ask the waiter. Even when you don't speak the language, a lot can be figured out with a phrasebook and a waiter.

Changing channels -- when a talk show comes on

Looking forward to the new book.

(I was going to buy it immediately but then I remembered that you're a big fan of decision making by lottery so I'll have to see when its number comes up. 😁)

I'm excited about the couple of book suggestions that delve into the issue of hyper-productivity and achievement in our society. It's a theme that's been gaining prominence lately, and "Four Thousand Weeks" was the first book that opened my eyes by challenging these notions. As someone who's a recovering perfectionist/productivity enthusiast, it’s promising to see society starting to question this lifestyle. Hopefully, as a collective, we can begin to unravel ourselves from our own high expectations! Thanks for a great book list.

Oops! You missed one - “Grieving: A Spiritual Process for Catholics” by Paula Kosin. It’s a refreshing approach that combines best current practices in healthy grieving with contemporary Catholic Christian spirituality. https://www.amazon.com/Grieving-Spiritual-Catholics-Paula-Kosin/dp/1616717238

These fall books are a cherry-picked paradox of sweet and tart, challenging and affirming our perspectives. Just like a bowl of fresh cherries, they offer unique flavors and remind us that unexpected ideas can be the most delicious. 🍒📚

Is it just me or are all the titles by men triumphant in nature and the titles by women almost sound tragic?
