The book is revolutionary. Dr. Fung is an authoritative voice. He‘s a nephrologist. He‘s done his research. It‘s a wonky, dry read at times. Some readers may not enjoy all the data. Does it work? Complicated answer. The keto diet is radical. Dining out is HARD. Is it worth it? It‘s probably the best dietary hope for diabetics. Dr. Fung strongly promotes intermittent fasting. The results are shockingly positive for me. I‘d say read the book.

Get your tissues. Prepare to sob quietly. I listened to it on Audible at work. Maybe that was a mistake. Had to hide all day so people didn‘t see me crying. Got kids? Hug them. Hug them hard. Finish the book. The first few pages are hard to understand. By chapter two you will not be able to leave this book and it won‘t leave you. It‘s a gut wrenching read but it is a must read. Pain, forgiveness and how to live when the worst happens.

Charlotte's Web | E. B. White

I over the years, I read this book aloud to my children. Each time, I was overwhelmed with emotion. The simple clarity of words gets me every time. In my opinion, Charlotte‘s Web is one of the most beautifully written books of all time.

Bittersweet. Science. Butterflies. Now I want to be an entomologist. I loved this book. There is a morality tale woven in. Usually, I don‘t like morality tales. I was blindsided by the visual descriptions as the sky turned to flame. I felt the yearning. I understood the small town secrets, the okay but not too bright husband, the controlling mother in law. I had a greater love for science after this book. I had a greater love for nature.

Steve Jobs | Walter Isaacson

Wow, the things I learned in this book. How lucky was Steve Jobs to be adopted by parents who understood his gifts? He was difficult. In the wrong family his life could have gone horribly afoul. I was repulsed and beguiled. This is an important book about an important man.

Every “voluntourist” and missionary should read this book. I‘ve always been skeptical of missionary work. Then I lived at a seminary for five years. I wish the tone of this book was wrong. It‘s not though. The epic twists and turns of the young women in this book and their attempts to continue on with life are astounding

This book was painful. I‘m not talking just about the marriage either. This book was like a punishment. I had to stop. It was riddled with cliches. This book will only turn people away from marital counseling. I was alarmed the woman, innocent of wrongdoing, had to be psychologically gutted in the process. Why are we okay with this?

I read this book for the first time the summer I turned 16 and it changed my life. Then I read every book in the series. Just gave the book to my 16 year old son. So the epic saga continues.
