Philosophy for Life: And other dangerous situations
Philosophy for Life: And other dangerous situations
Price: £3.95

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read!, 18 Aug 2014

I came across Jules Evans' article in a national newspaper about how CBT and philosophy had saved him from anxiety, as someone who is struggling with anxiety and about to start CBT this was a must read. So glad I did as it introduced me to a world I didn't know enough about. Loved the book and inspired me to read more about stoicism in particular...

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have!, 19 May 2014
This is a great book, ignore the 2 star review, 5 stars all the way. If you've seen Ben Greenfield's website then you'll have seen some of the stuff before but it is an excellent resource to read over and over again!

All these books are excellent. There are some aspects common to all (as you'd expect) but each books comes at them in a slightly different way but with the same core aspects that would make a difference to your own way of life. Currently on book 5 having read them all back to back....

The Tao of Pooh & The Te of Piglet (Wisdom of Pooh)
The Tao of Pooh & The Te of Piglet (Wisdom of Pooh)
by Benjamin Hoff
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for a difficult topic (?), 22 Jan 2014

If like me you're interested in improving yourself and keen to learn about different/better approaches to life than the typical stressed approach to Western lifestyles then you've probably started reading books on Buddhism and Taoism. Having look at some books on Tao they can be really hard to read and get to grips with. This isn't one of them - by combining a classic childrens story with Tao so you understand concepts through the characters (mingled with traditional Tao stories) this is really easy to read and very worthwhile.

The second book The Te of Piglet I found nearly as good as the first (Tao of Pooh) although it did go off on a rant about the state of the USA a few times which I felt wasn't needed.

All in all a great read to introduce readers to a great subject. I do wonder if it will ruin my enjoyment of reading normal Pooh books to my sons though - who am I kidding of course it won't!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read, 11 Dec 2013

Great readable material! Having read quite a few fitness and paleo books a lot of the things, such as ditch the grains and sugar, weren't a surprise but always great to have a new source of material to cement ideas. Well written and very easy to read you can really tell his enthusiasm.
