Book Review: How Healing Works

The topic of healthcare has been explored from just about every angle imaginable and many problems and issues with our current health system have not been solved. How Healing Works: Get Well And Stay Well Using Your Hidden Power To Heal by Dr. Wayne Jonas doesn’t solve everything either but it does provide some fresh perspective and thoughtful insight from a career that has spanned more than 40 years. 80% of healing happens outside of the doctor’s office and Jonas encourages Americans to consider this while re-evaluating our healthcare system and how we take care of ourselves. An enjoyable read with some good ideas.¬† 3 stars.

Book Review: How Democracies Die

“A country whose president…declares that he might not accept election results cannot credibly defend democracy.”

In a most ironic and completely bind twist on reality, Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt try to sum up why President Trump is killing our democracy while ignoring the fact that Bernie Sanders called fraud on the Democratic primary results in 2016 and many of Hillary Clinton’s supporters refused to accept the general election results in November 2016.

This book is nothing more than thinly veiled propaganda by a couple hypocritical authors who refuse to look in the mirror and face reality.

Book Review: Why We Don’t Suck by Denis Leary

Why We Don’t Suck: And How All Of Us Need To Stop Being Such Partisan Little Bitches by Dr. Denis Leary is a scathing and hilarious look at the hypocrisy and insanity of both the Democratic and Republican parties. It also takes a hard look at the de-evolution of modern pop culture and the current American mindset. Put simply, we’ve all lost our minds.

It doesn’t matter who you are, (Republican, Democrat, old, young) if you don’t find something funny in this book, you have no sense of humor.

Book Review: Fire On The Track By Roseanne Montillo

Fire On The Track: Betty Robinson And The Triumph Of The Early Olympic Women by Roseanne Montillo is a timely volume filled with socially relevant commentary and fascinating history. Much more than a biography. This is a tale of overcoming in the face of insurmountable odds and showing what it takes to become a champion. An inspiring story for all who read it.

Book Review: Chasing Phil by David Howard

Chasing Phil: The Adventures of Two Undercover Agents With the World’s Most Charming Con Man by David Howard is a stylish true crime story, told in a way that keeps the pages turning. Set in the 1970s with legendary characters, Howard gets to the heart of the story using a little artistic license for added flavor. With entertaining dialogue and intriguing¬† actors, I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun reading a true crime book.
