In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein explodes the myth that America's cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation - that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, he incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation - the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments - that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.

This book reveals why our communities have been, and many still remain, segregated. Rothstein masterfully illustrates a complicated and tragic part of our history in an accessible and clear manner. He discusses historical data in a way that is both informative and engaging. I've purchased both the paperback and audio version of this book. I highly recommend it.

The relationship duo between borderlines and narcissists tends to be more common than we think. There is no true way to get a good picture of how many relationships span this dynamic, as many borderlines and narcissists go undiagnosed or undetected. Most narcissists don't have the intuition, knowledge of their condition, or interest in their inner world to pursue why they are the way they are. It is unlikely that they would seek treatment because of their overinflated egos...

If you could sum up 34 Ways to Talk to a Narcissist: The Narcissistic Borderline Relationship Dynamic in three words, what would they be?

Very help book on common traits of the narcissistic personality and suggestions on how to respond to them in specific situations. This book is in list form and I found it to be very clear and to the point.

  • Making Life Easy

Ever since medical school, Dr. Christiane Northrup has been guided by an essential truth about the way our bodies, minds, and souls are intertwined. It's the same truth Edgar Cayce expressed in this famous formula: The spirit is life. The mind is the builder. The physical is the result. When we don't grasp this - when we view our bodily well-being in isolation - life can devolve into constant worry about our health and constant battling to make our bodies "behave".
