Michael takes a simple question – “What should we have for dinner?” – and breaks it down into a complex depiction of how the typical person eats today. He follows the source of the food, from corn fields and factories, to what you put on your dinner plate. It really changes the way you think about food by perfectly depicting where it comes from.
Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think
Brian Wansink, Ph.D
Since I was once overweight and addicted to eating junk food, this book does an amazing job of opening your eyes to how you eat. I found that it will actually change how you approach your next meal after you read it. Wansink makes you aware of what is going from your plate to your mouth. He makes you think twice before you start shovelling food into your mouth, like I used to!
The Way of the Peaceful Warrior
It takes an 'Average Joe' type and follows his unfolding toward true self-awareness. The author’s approach is one you can relate to it – it goes deep into his journey without going too deep. It’s an interesting path of transformation and enlightenment that makes you think about how you prioritize your life. I plan on reading it a second time.
There is nothing better than a thriller by Vince Flynn to help me get through long travels! Vince Flynn has been my personal top thriller author for a long time so it was hard to choose just one book by him, but “Kill Shot” was the most recent one I read and I couldn't put it down.
