Book Review: Soul Selfie by Sadguru Rameshji

Book Review: Happiness to the Power of Infinity by Rohit Sodha

Happiness to the Power of Infinity is brilliant book with concrete techniques to change ones habits, founded in extensive research. Much of what is presented, is common sense I think, but the difference is, that it is articulated in ways I can not, and is tested in research studies.

Book Review: Moment of Signal by Sreedhar Bevara

What I love most about this book, Moment of Signal, is the zero nonsense it allows. I read this when I really needed a kick up the backside, and it did that. The book builds on the premise that the circumstances affect us not as much by how good/bad they are but how we react to them.

Book Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

The Martian by Andy Weir is a hard science fiction novel about one man being stranded on Mars and trying not to die. It features such riveting activities as growing potatoes using your own faeces as part of the soil and repair work on multiple pieces of equipment.

The mission was to remain on the Red Planet for thirty-one days, but six days into their stay, a huge dust storm blew up with ferocious winds that forced the crew to abandon the mission.
