Several of Philip K. Dick's stories have been turned into movies or TV shows. I really wanted to read the stories that were the basis for what I've watched, but stories like Minority Report were not included. However, I watched "The Second Kind" this past weekend, which I didn't even know was made into a movie until I started watching it and recognized the story. I will look for more of his collections or novel. He has a fascinating mind and very interesting stories.

I liked the option of this summary as opposed to reading the entire diet book. I find lifestyle books often tedious and filled with a lot of opinions. This summary just provided the "need to know" information. The drawback is there are no pictures, food lists, or recipes like in the full book. I visited Dr. Gundry's website to fill in that information. I've been following the diet for 5 days and I've lost 3 pounds! I wasn't expecting such a rapid change, I was attempting to eat a more healthy diet to improve my life, the weight loss is a big bonus!

  • Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (AmazonClassics Edition)

Flatland is populated by Squares, Triangles, Circles, and Lines, all of which are strictly divided by class and gender. However, our narrator, A Square, living a practical life in this two-dimensional universe, dreams of other worlds. Perhaps A Sphere, a figure from a three-dimensional realm, can help drive home the point. But, as A Square soon discovers, educating Flatland about the shapes of things to come proves to be a dangerous infraction.

This book primarily describes a society (Flatland) where people are geometric shapes. It explains their culture and the last part describes what happens when a citizen is exposed to other lands with different societal norms and understandings about shapes and the true nature of their society. I found the constant descriptions of geometry hard to visualize at times, but it was interesting and a bit weird - which I like.
