The last several years I’ve been doing more fasting, both for health and spirit. I wish I’d had @bulletproofexec’s Fast This Way when I started. An excellent book on how (and why!) to fast, and even some ways to make fasting easier. Also, not to brag, but 8th book this year! – source

Explore the American past through a new lens with this groundbreaking history book. Renowned author Jill Lepore places truth itself at the heart of the nation's story, examining its three founding ideas of political equality, natural rights, and sovereignty of the people.

Engaging and thought-provoking, this book will forever alter your understanding of American history.
Highly recommend reading These Truths by Jill Lepore. It’s a fascinating and thought provoking read that takes us from Columbus to President Trump and helped me to better understand how we got to where we are today. Maybe my favorite American History book!!! #greatbooks – source

Explore the undeniable impact of climate change on our world in On Fire, a compelling collection of essays by international bestselling author Naomi Klein. Klein argues that a Green New Deal is the key to creating a just and thriving society in the face of rising ecological threats. From the Great Barrier Reef to post-hurricane Puerto Rico, Klein shows how urgent climate action is needed to transform the systems that produced this crisis. Written in a prophetic and philosophical style, On Fire is a rousing call to action for a planet on the brink.
Love @NaomiAKlein’s new book, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal. It makes powerful, compelling arguments for how we can not only combat climate change, but create a more just society in the process. Quotes and ideas in the thread #GreenNewDeal – source
