Welcome to the July 2019 edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon. 😛
The author of this book, Happiness Is All We Want!, Ashutosh Mishra, approached me for an honest review in exchange for a review copy. The title intrigued me and despite knowing it is nonfiction (I’m not that big a fan), I agreed to review it.
I always associated nonfiction books with frigid narratives and fact dispensers. But Rujuta Diwekar’s Don’t Lose Your Mind, Lose Your Weight is in a completely different category altogether. I bought the book only because I only knew Rujuta to be the best in the country, but mostly because I got the Kindle copy very cheap. [39 bucks only.] But buying the book and reading it has been one of the better decisions I have taken in my life.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is a purely unbiased biography of who could possibly be the most influential visionary the world has ever seen. Yes, at the time, he seemed to have been overhyped. He was worshipped like a God. But after reading Isaacson’s well-researched account of Jobs’ life, I think that maybe he was a God in his own ways.
‘The Tumor’ is more like a medical paper than anything else. Grisham says that it is the most important book he has ever written. And without having read any of his books before this, I’ll say I agree. So says my gut. Health and cure are always most important. Always.
