Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when we don't sleep. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

I always felt the importance of sleep but still all too often failed to take seriously and follow the messages of my body. This exzellent book has given me so much insight that going to sleep has become a daily endeavour I look forward to and enjoy in every respect. And this again has led to me bring happier, more relaxed and positive.

Als der 46-jährige Florent-Claude Bilanz zieht, beschließt er, sich aus seinem Leben zu verabschieden - eine Entscheidung, die auch das neue Antidepressivum Captorix nicht zu ändern vermag, das ihn seine Libido kostet. Er erinnert sich an die Frauen seines Lebens, begegnet einem alten Studienfreund, der als Landwirt im globalisierten Frankreich um seine Existenz kämpft, und er rechnet ab: mit der modernen Gesellschaft, der Wirtschaft, der Politik - und mit sich selbst. Nie hat Houellebecq so ernsthaft und voller Emotion über die Liebe geschrieben.

Der Autor liebt Provokation und lebt das weidlich aus. Das kann irritieren. Trotz umfangreicher wiederholender unappetitlicher Sexszenen ist das Buch dennoch interessant, die Sprache fast betörend und die gezeichnete Welt des Hauptprotagonisten schmerzhaft real, nachvollziehbar und erschreckend. Die politische und gesellschaftliche Darstellung der Landwirtschaft in Europa heute interessant und erschütternd.

When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction, and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third.

This an excellent and profound book both on the history and the potential of the use of psychodelics. It sheds light on many misconceptions of the past that have falsely put psychodelics in the same category of addictive drugs - while the contrary is actually the case with psychodelics having an important healing contribution to make to our society. Michael Pollan has done an amazing job in covering the subject both from an analytical as well as personal perspective. Finally he points at the future challenges our society needs to solve in order to find ways to integrate a sensible use with the right set & setting. Thank you Michael for this important contribution!!!

Maya Angelou's six volumes of autobiography are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary writer. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a Black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy, achievement, and celebration. In this first volume of her six books of autobiography, Maya Angelou beautifully evokes her childhood with her grandmother in the American south of the 1930s. She learns the power of the white folks at the other end of town and suffers the terrible trauma of rape by her mother's lover.

it took me a while to get used to her voice and being able to understand every word. however there came a point when it felt I was diving into her world, her story, her feelings. she is an amazing storyteller. her view and expression for her inside world and her capacity to describe what I thought could only be felt but never be put into words left me in wonder. at the same time her tellings are a political and historical account of the 40ies in the US and opened my eyes to many aspects of life as Afroamerican that were moving to me.
