Book Review: Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

I am normally a bit sceptical of ancient philosophy books. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. This short and sweet book is full of practical wisdom and little reminders for when things feel too much, such you should “consider anything that is humanly possible and appropriate to lie within your reach”.

Book Review: Political Order and Political Decay by Francis Fukuyama

This book explores how the state, its law, and its democracy, have developed over a series of historical events, and how in current times, the state of democracy has started to decay in today’s most developed democracies. This book is very much a classic in political theory and science and, especially with its focus on history, it is likely to be timeless. I would recommend this book to anyone studying or interested in political science, political theory, economics, and world history.

Book Review: Bullsh*t Jobs by David Graeber

This book is not a list of every type of pointless job. Instead, it provides a breakdown of why society has pointless jobs, how we got to this stage, and what we can do about it. It is deeply honest and revealing, sharing unspoken truths about the human condition, ultimately asking how we can reach human freedom.

Book Review: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain

What is your personality type? How can you be an inclusive leader? These are only a couple of the questions that Susan Cain addresses in this empowering book. Cain dispels myths about having an introverted personality type to change society’s perception of what it means to be introverted. This book would be of most interest to all those who are aspiring to be inclusive leaders, as well as those interested in personality and psychology.
