It seems that these days we are far too busy for independent thinking. There has been a steady decline of interest in substance and intellectual humor, critical thinking is endangered, and the yin and yang of discourse is rapidly diminishing. As Anthony Storr wisely observed, "Originality implies being bold enough to go beyond accepted norms," and author Ronnie G. Shaeffer has found that deviation from regularity is his true daily dessert. His new book, The Mental Circus, is an engaging quote-a-day collection of insights and humor from the famous to the not-so-famous, including Shaeffer's own quotes, notes, and artwork. This easy-to-read collection looks at life, love, and the pursuit of happiness, with valuable life lessons to help you develop an enlightened personal philosophy. It's sure to make you think, possibly embolden a creative thought, and give you a glimpse into someone else's head-with the ultimate purpose of expanding, improving, questioning, and delighting in your own humanity.
