A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church
Megan Phelps-roper - 2019-10-08
Calificación de Goodreads
This gripping memoir delves into the life of an activist who grew up in the notorious Westboro Baptist Church. Phelps-Roper reveals her journey from a childhood of protesting against homosexuality and other alleged vices, to her eventual departure from the church and moral awakening. Through her story, readers are shown the dangers of black-and-white thinking and the need for true humility in a time of angry polarization.
Olivia Wilde
Cannot even begin to recommend this enough. If you don't know Megan's story, this will blow your mind. Even if you do already know about her profound capacity for love and courage and humility, this is well worth a read. Read it and then buy it for everyone since you know you haven't even started holiday gift shopping. It should honestly be required reading as we head into an election year. So moving. So good.      fuente

A Memoir
Tara Westover - 2018-02-20
Calificación de Goodreads
Nacida en las montañas de Idaho, Tara Westover ha crecido en armonía con una naturaleza grandiosa y doblegada a las leyes que establece su padre, un mormón fundamentalista convencido de que el final del mundo es inminente. Ni Tara ni sus hermanos van a la escuela o acuden al médico cuando enferman. Todos trabajan con el padre, y su madre es curandera y única partera de la zona. Tara tiene un talento: el canto, y una obsesión: saber. Pone por primera vez los pies en un aula a los diecisiete años: no sabe que ha habido dos guerras mundiales, pero tampoco la fecha exacta de su nacimiento (no tiene documentos). Pronto descubre que la educación es la única vía para huir de su hogar. A pesar de empezar de cero, reúne las fuerzas necesarias para preparar el examen de ingreso a la universidad, cruzar el océano y graduarse en Cambridge, aunque para ello deba romper los lazos con su familia.

Sat down in my plane seat, didn't feel take-off, 6 hours of flying, or landing. Unreal. Thank you, Tara Westover. Consider me educated.      fuente

Lo que la nueva ciencia de la psicodelia nos enseña sobre la conciencia, la muer
Michael Pollan - 2018-05-17
Calificación de Goodreads
Could psychedelic drugs change our worldview? One of America's most admired writers takes us on a mind-altering journey to the frontiers of human consciousness When LSD was first discovered in the 1940s, it seemed to researchers, scientists and doctors as if the world might be on the cusp of psychological revolution. It promised to shed light on the deep mysteries of consciousness, as well as offer relief to addicts and the mentally ill. But in the 1960s, with the vicious backlash against the counter-culture, all further research was banned. In recent years, however, work has quietly begun again on the amazing potential of LSD, psilocybin and DMT. Could these drugs in fact improve the lives of many people? Diving deep into this extraordinary world and putting himself forward as a guinea-pig, Michael Pollan has written a remarkable history of psychedelics and a compelling portrait of the new generation of scientists fascinated by the implications of these drugs. How to Change Your Mind is a report from what could very well be the future of human consciousness.

I love what he did for the food revolution, but he’s also just an incredible investigative thinker, It’s an interesting discussion on how we view mental health and hallucinogenic drugs and the kind of ancient connection between those two things.      fuente

Resisting Trump's Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need
Naomi Klein - 2017-06-13
Calificación de Goodreads
An urgent and insightful book by a renowned journalist on how we got to this surreal political moment and what we can do to create a better future. Trump's reckless agenda, including a corporate coup in government and sweeping aside climate science, will generate disasters and shocks. Naomi Klein argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of dangerous trends that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism globally. We need more than resistance; we need a roadmap for a fair and caring world. A timely and inspiring call to action.
