Was asked to review this but have been putting it off. I am more worried about what it will say about me as a person and scholar than what I have to say about it. But I need a break this morning so here I go.

Enjoying this biography of Bellah by Matteo Bortolini of the U of Padua. It's very well written for a sociologist, much less one who I assume is not a native English speaker. It is a full biography not just an intellectual biography.
TIL: Bellah's father abandoned his family and committed suicide, leading him to be renamed Robert Neeley. He was a competitive individualist in HS. And he served a year in the Army after he arrived at Harvard. Image

Just finished 'Between Two Kingdoms' by @suleikajaouad #BookReview #BookTwitter #Disability

Wow. This book has left me in a swirl of intense feelings, so it is a little hard to write a review that truly summarizes the beauty of this book.
Between Two Kingdoms is a non-fiction memoir of Suleika Jaouad, and her experience with cancer, and reconnecting with life after almost losing hers. I am a fairly pragmatic person, but it almost feels like life brought me this book at just the right time.
After months of dealing with severe chronic illnesses, and fighting for my health and wellness, I finally feel like I am turning the corner (knock on wood), and this book found me at just the right time.

5 Takeaways from the Book "Rework"!! 📚

[A Thread 🧵]

#bookreview #rework #business
1. ASAP is poison. 🚫

The term "as soon as possible" has no defined definition. As a result, you may not be able to precisely prioritise items in this case.
2. Meetings are toxic.🤝

We just debate, compare, and quarrel in meetings, and we pay less attention to work. On the contrary, if we want anything useful to happen, we should organise workshops.

📘 The Psychology of Money by @morganhousel

Theme: This book highlights how to make better financial decisions and financial lessons on how to deal with money.

Quotes I liked the most -
1️⃣ Controlling your time is the highest dividend money pays.
2⃣ History never repeats itself; man always does.

3⃣ Spending money to show people how much money you have is the fastest way to have less money.

4⃣ There is no reason to risk what you have and need for what you don’t have and don’t need.
5⃣ Luck and risk are siblings. They are both the reality that every outcome in life is guided by forces other than individual effort.

6⃣ Planning is important, but the most important part of every plan is to plan on the plan not going according to plan.

அடுத்தவர் வாழ்க்கை என்றும் மற்றவர்களுக்கு கதை தானே.

After 1.5 years of working as a #history #BookReview Editor, I have some thoughts about how this whole thing works.

Authors, I know you're eager to see reviews of your book (I am too), but there are a lot of factors that are hard to control... 1/🧵
First, book reviews don't happen without books. I can't send a book out for review if I don't receive it. I receive a lot of unsolicited books, which is great. I also request books from presses when I learn about them. Not all presses are super responsive. 2/
As an author, you need to be proactive. Make sure your press is sending out copies of your book. Contact book review editors to offer a copy, or to put us in touch with your press' PR person. 3/

I have an annual book reading average of 30+ and 2021 was no different. So, I thought I'd post (for the first time) my top ten books of the year. I tend to read a diverse array, from philosophy and epistemology to science and current issues. So, not in any particular order..
This book written by Rob Brotherton (@rob_brotherton) was a fantastic read on why people believe in conspiracy theories, and how we are all prone to nonsensical thinking - it's not just an affliction of people on the fringes of society wearing tinfoil hats
In a similar fashion, Michael Shermer (@michaelshermer) tackles the psychology and neurobiology of why we believe in pseudoscientific nonsense and unsupported claims

#BookReview Isavasyopanishad, An English Commentary By Nithin Sridhar

In this #Thread, we shall take a deep-dive into the book through the excellent review of the book by Shivakumar GV @SaamaanyaJ

@IndicaBooks #book
At the outset, it seems like a shift in his focus, a leap into the Paramartha. However, from this review it will be clear that a singular focus and concern is driving all his writings. The ‘Paramartha Chintana’ is very much part of ‘Purushartha Chintana’.
Bharateeya Parampara does not see the two any differently. The ‘Iha’ and the ‘Para’ are always together.

The former is organized towards the latter. The latter shapes the former.

The Upanishad he has chosen is ‘Isavasyopanishad’
