This book is great for those who would like to think about different ways to look at life. It involves different outlooks by many different people. Various philosophies are used and I believe this book is great for people who would like to expand their mind.

If you like random thoughts, by random people, about random subjects…………..you may enjoy this book.

This is a great book. Each essay discusses (in simple terms) a scientific concept, and how that concept can be applied in everyday life. This book sparks great discussions as well, and I definitely recommend for anyone who is looking to "think" a little more in their daily life. I'll be picking up more in the series soon.

Each essay in this collection focuses on one scientific principle that can be used in everyday life. I recommend reading one a day to really get your brain in gear and either learn a new concept or learn something new about a concept you thought was familiar to you.
