Alright, I can see why this is such a big, top selling novel / self help book. It was spot on with most of what was said, and even though I’ve already (funnily enough) started down this road of giving limited “fucks”, I also had a lot more moments that I feel like I should integrate into my daily life. It was such a fun, great and somewhat easy read. Yet, it was also kind of poignant and true. Definitely a book that I would (and have) recommend to others.
This textbook left my brain feeling happy, full and filled with wonderful knowledge. Which is exactly what I want at the end of reading a textbook. After all, I read these kinds of books to fill my brain with knowledge. So finding that I felt more knowledgeable and super happy at the end of this made me incredibly happy.
I actually really enjoyed the setup of this textbook. It was completely approachable. And, most importantly it showed how the theories and concepts discussed in the first part actually relate to our daily lives and made it a little more practical… something that I don’t often come across in the non-fiction texts I read for my university studies.
This is one of those textbooks that you end up reading the whole thing throughout the entirety of a course. And I was honestly wondering whether or not to include it in my reviews and reading for the year. And then I realised that a) I did read it, so it should be included. And b) even if this isn’t a novel, it’s still a book that had authors put a lot of effort into it, and I should recognise that with a review.
As far as textbooks go, I really, really enjoyed this one. It was easy to read, interesting and I ended up reading a lot of it for the pure enjoyment. Not sure how much I actually absorbed, but I definitely enjoyed the adventure.
