A Gift of Wings by Richard Bach
A Gift of Wings

writermala, April 24, 2015

My first thought as I started reading this book was that it was not as inspirational as "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" or "Illusions;" but as I read along I changed my mind. The author is very perceptive and he shares his views through his flight experiences for example when he warns us that whatever we pray for we get. He himself finds out that the perspective he has found in flight means something more than all the miles he's flown.One of the more interesting essays in the book is where he compares "aviation 'and "flying."The most important lesson learned from this book though was that everything we need to know, is already within us, waiting till we call it.

It Was Me All Along by Andie Mitchell
It Was Me All Along

writermala, April 22, 2015

Andie Mitchell, in her memoir, "It was me all along," tells of her battle with weight and body image. She was a chubby little toddler and there was no looking back from then on. she ate because food numbed her, she ate because food made her forget the pain of living in a dysfunctional family. Andie cries out that the bigger she grew the smaller she felt.

Does she battle out of this weight problem? I wouldn't want to be a spoiler. I would certainly encourage everyone to read and find out for themselves.It is one poignant read.

The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande
The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right

writermala, April 19, 2015

This compelling book written by a successful surgeon argues the case of using a humble checklist in major medical surgery as Airline Pilots do in flying. Checklists, suggests (and proves) Dr. Gawande can save lives. It's as as simple as that. The writer shows us in detail how a simple checklist can minimize mistakes that lead to horrendous problems and even fatalities.

This manifesto is electrifying and I for one loved it.
