Review: When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing

When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing by Daniel H. Pink
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With the subject being "perfect timing", there is something ironic (or something else) about the fact that I read this between January and August of this year. Stretching out a read like this would be horrible if it weren't for Kindle highlights, which allowed me to catch up from a long time lag in reading. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found unexpected insights, including the importance of the word "time" in the English language. Don't miss the final chapter.

Review: Educated: A Memoir

Educated: A Memoir Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very interesting glimpse into the lives of "fellow Idahoans", albeit from a very different region of our state. (Seemingly another century as well, at least at times.) Westover's story includes both the familiar and the shocking - but none all that surprising. A page-turner, for sure.
