What I’ve been reading

Bookshelves with Red, orange, yellow and green books

My reading lately has taken me deeper into the problems of the climate crisis and capitalism and also currency, creativity, and coaching. All the Cs have a home. 

Coach the Person Not the Problem by Marcia Reynolds
The best book on coaching that I have read so far. 

Having and Being Had by Eula Biss
I tried not to read this book. But I was sucked in and I’m glad that I was. 

Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing by Jacob Goldstein
A seriously fascinating read. Money has no real value. That’s a mind-bender for you. 

All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson
We have to face climate change. It’s difficult and deep but also more urgent than most people realize.

The Creative Cure: How Finding and Freeing Your Inner Artist Can Heal Your Life by Jacob Nordby
I’m a fan of Jacob’s book Blessed are the Weird and equally at home with his latest book. Humans are creative. All of us. Without exception.

What I’ve Been Reading

Sometimes, you just want to hide beneath your hat

I’m currently reading Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily Nagoski and Amelia Nagoski. I learned about these amazing twin sisters from Brené Brown, and less than 10 minutes into the podcast, I was checking out the book from the library. I picked it up yesterday and read the introduction and the first chapter this morning. I highly recommend it to anyone (everyone?) dealing with stress and burnout. 

TL;DR? Listen to the Nagoski sisters on Brené Brown’s podcast, Unlocking Us.
