Up to my eyebrows
With closets overflowing —
books worth two lifetimes!
The inspiration for this style of post comes from Sasha Cagen’s book to-do list: FROM buying our milk TO finding a soul mate, WHAT OUR LISTS REVEAL about us. Cagen has seen the art in listmaking and addresses the seemingly mindless, trivial task from several psychological angles: memory, compulsion, learning, habits, relationships, emotional states, language, and symbolism. For reals, y’all. The entire human experience is in there. So you could read a philosophy book and juggle invisible abstract concepts…or you could read this book and be edified by your own discoveries about human nature.
I like this book because of the description I just finished. But I also like it because I’m a sucker for interesting graphic art, with which this book is overflowing.
