It's My 1 Year Blogiversary!

....well almost. My actual blog-versary is on July 26th which is just over a week from now. But we won't dwell on the details! 

So how will I celebrate you ask!? I've scheduled a brief intermission! I'm tired y'all!

I'll be back after Labor Day refreshed and renewed! Enjoy your summer!

But while you're here, feel free to look around!

Why I Didn’t Finish 'Virus of the Mind' by Richard Brodie



Why I bought it
It was recommended by a speaker during one of the sessions I attended at the National Urban League Conference a few years ago.

Why I didn’t finish it
This book discusses why we think the way we do about any given thing. It breaks down what causes certain thoughts and behaviors and shows how relationships created in the subconscious mind impact conscious decisions.

The content is very technical. I read for pleasure so the fact that this book was causing me to have flashbacks to my undergraduate science courses wasn’t working for me. I didn’t realize the subtitle (The New Science of the Meme) was to be taken literally!

Will I finish it?
No.

Have you read Virus of the Mind? What did you think?

You Asked, I Answered!

Q. Do you finish every book you start?

A. No I do not. But I do finish every book that I post reflections on.

But now that you mention it, I've been meaning to feature those books that I do not finish as well.
