the tea ritual is an important part of Japanese tradition. It is not supposed to be easily acquired and this text is not so easily absorbed. Perfect

very very completing and beautifully read. strangely feels like it odd missing its final chapter to tie everything together. There is some enlightening chapter on how to apply this knowledge that I wish was included. Malcom leaves this for us to figure out...

brilliant. Oddest thing is his complete absence of discussion of the rule of faith or religion on coping with aging. perhaps dinner on purpose but feels like the one miss in this otherwise remarkably insightful book on aging

fascinating and painful in depth account of three north of Islamic extremists. feels best researched and most compelling in the first three quarters. most recent part can't be as deeply studied. what a great audio though.

surprised to discover that my 11 year olds were hooked to the story despite tons of digression into "factual" analysis of these pre historic peoples. in the end it was really different and cool.not stutter I have the stamina for the rest of the series though...
