Dear readers – This is a post by my friend and frequent contributor Ken. Ken decided to review a book called The English Patient. I learned about this book and the related movie at a young age. They are both my mother’s favorites. It is quite a disarming story. The reason may be that I have lived in a warzone and in a war period; I may be able to relate to what wars destroy: Love and Lives.
A while ago I started a blogpost with a question: “what would you do if you were not afraid”? I cannot remember the number of times I asked myself this question. Yet, in the past few months, I have asked myself a different question: “do you do things out of fear or out of love”? Over time, I also learned to ground myself through another important question: “would you rather be happy or right”? I have recently read a book called “so good they can’t ignore you” by Cal Newport.
I am very happy to announce that I will be adding, going forward, a star rating to every book review. I thought that this will ease readers’ selection for books you would like to read. It is visual, consistent, and easy to understand.
