Organizing For Your Brain Type. I am "innovative" with a "kinesthetic" sensory process. Thought I would be a "visual" sensory processor. I don't recommend this book. It is rife with editing errors. Hoping its ideas are better than its presentation.
Sounds like they're the disorganized type.
I have recently become fascinated by Frank Herbert's "Dune" series. His take on religion/s is brain stimulating.
It's an oldy but a good read, 1984 George Orwell, Bout to start on Cat's Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut
"Shame Travels" by Jasvinder Sanghera, about a UK Indian lady who was disowned by her family for running away from a forced marriage, and went on to set up Karma Nirvana, a charity which helps other young people in a similar position. I learned a lot about the Sikh religion. Her mother justified her position by saying it's written in the Holy Book, but this isn't true.
The last book I read was "Say Nice Things about Detroit" (Scott Lasser). It was okay but I wasn't crazy about it. The book before that was "Legacy" (Danielle Steel - historical romance - French Revolution). It was great if you like that kind of thing.
Last book(s) I finished reading was, for the umpteenth time, Homer's 'Iliad and Odyssey'. The book before that was 'The God Virus', and currently reading 'Time of Legends: Heldenhammer' and still struggling through the Qur'an.
The book I just finished reading was a fantasy novel I read back in middle school. Exact title escapes me, but it was a Piers Anthony Xanth novel.
My current books on the go are Murakami's Wind-up Bird Chronicles, and I am about to start into Lisa Diamond's Sexual Fluidity.
"The Righteous Mind - why good people are divided by politics and religion" by Jonathan Haidt. A current bestseller. I'm really looking forward to it.
"Social psychologist Jonathan Haidt reveals how the conflict, self-righteousness and hypocrisy that can make it so hard for us to get along are actually the natural expression of our moral minds. Drawing on twenty-five years of groundbreaking research, Haidt shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from intuition, and why we evolved to be this way."
