The Gift of Therapy: An open letter to a new gener&hellip by Irvin D. Yalom
5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and Insightful, 13 Jun 2013
A real pleasure to be able to receive so much wisdom in one book. Yalom writes as well as ever; clear, intelligent and above all human!
The Great Partnership: God, Science and the Search&hellip by Jonathan Sacks
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This is a well-written book that manages to make difficult topics accessible and interesting! Jonathan Sacks explores the apparent tensions between religion and science; his understanding of how the two sides of the human brain work together, but in different ways, lends credibility to his arguments that religion and science are not mutually exclusive but both enrich the other and both have their roots deep in human culture and traditions.
Being Alive : the sequel to Staying Alive by Neil Astley

Along with Staying Alive, this anthology of modern poetry introduces some of the the leading poets of our day in a way that even those who are unfamiliar with poetry, or think it isn't for them, wil just want to carry on reading and reading and reading. The way the poems are linked together is helpful and clever, stimulating you to look for the poem that suits your mood and which expresses just how you feel. Brilliant!!
