Joseph Heller – God Knows

Joseph Heller – God Knows September 10, 2019

Score: 10/10  This used to be my second favourite book, and it’s amongst those rare history lessons you’ll never forget. But I want to talk about something else today. David’s story.  This God’s son; prodigy of musical instruments, courage, ambition (but that’s good when you are a man, isn’t it?) and manual weapons (then again with that huge of hands…) gets seduced by that instrument of a devil – woman. And gets punished, because he broke, what, basically all 10…

Matt Haig – How to Stop Time

Matt Haig – How to Stop Time August 20, 2019

Score: 9/10 (possibly 10)  There is nothing quite like finishing a good book.  It’s almost midnight and you know you gonna be tired tomorrow, but still, it’s only what? 20 pages? You gauge by the look of the book.  You check again if there isn’t some acknowledgments or something, which you certainly won’t be reading, to learn it’s probably even less.   And you read.   No, you don’t read it anymore, you flight over it, because you just HAVE…

John Gray – Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

John Gray – Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus August 16, 2019

Score: 8/10  “But why would a PEFEECT gentleman like you Mirko need a help with his relationship?! I don’t get it…” Is what you might (‘nay SHOULD) be thinking.  “I mean…” Mirko avoiding your eyes, all of a sudden acting really weirdly….   To the book…   How was it? People who have something to say, are often those who can’t find the right words for it, while those who have nothing to say are extremely equipped this way? (I’m…

Aldous Huxley – The Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell

Aldous Huxley – The Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell August 8, 2019

Score: 10/10  Let me blow your mind!  (Now, you need to sing it very same cheerful way Gwen Stefani used to, in that wonderful, COMPLETELY UNRELATED, song I hope you have playing in your head now.) And why not? Why not combine those two books, since they elaborating on the same topic.  And why not combine that with this song?  I will tell you why not! Because it’s a EFFFIN’ disgrace! THAT’S WHY!     Aldous Huxley will take you…

Matt Haig -The Humans

Matt Haig -The Humans August 7, 2019

Score: 6.5/10                  Should I write this while I read it, it would be probably 8…  Meaning it’s a good times, but this dude is unlucky to be compared with Huxley’s The Doors of Perception, which kicked my doors of perception white open, leaving his book somewhat forgotten on the yard. Rather unique point of view on a life in general. It bears some deep points, interesting facts (?), even usable tips on…

Aldous Huxley – Eyeless in Gaza

Aldous Huxley – Eyeless in Gaza August 6, 2019

Score: 10/10 I’m doing it wrong, of course. I have started with his last book (Island) and that’s similar sin than reading the end of the book first.  It is twice as bad with Huxley, who’s last book (“still on the Island Mirko?”) is sort of a summary of all the best thoughts he ever had.  Also, his last book (ISLAND) is an application of his understanding that being plain doesn’t neccessary has to be a mark of a foolish…

Eva Dusickova – Chalan, ktory vynasiel Spirita (The Guy Who Has Invented The Spirit)

Eva Dusickova – Chalan, ktory vynasiel Spirita (The Guy Who Has Invented The Spirit) January 3, 2019

Score: 3/10 Why would I waste your time with this low of a score? (All of a sudden ha? Did you mind in case of The Art of War? You haven’t, so I would ask you, all of you, to keep silence in the courtroom.) The book is exactly what would you expect a book written by a mom about her beloved (there is no doubt in that) son. And that is how it’s supposed to be! So again, why…

Kobe Bryant – The Mamba Mentality: How I Play

Kobe Bryant – The Mamba Mentality: How I Play January 2, 2019

Score: 7/10 Let’s be honest Kobe is better than you! And also, Kobe wants you to know it. So he decided to write this book. (My wild guess would be that this idea was initiated by the photographer, but the reason why Kobe said his “Yes!” was this.) And this approach would essentially be the very opposite of the Mamba mentality Kobe is preaching. It would be that wandering unfocused mind trying to diminish accomplishments of those who’ve found their…

Bill Bryson – Notes from a Small Island

Bill Bryson – Notes from a Small Island December 5, 2018

Score: 7/10 I needed to keep forcing myself into reading it. No joke, but I did so with great pleasure, since as there is sun above the clouds, there is a LAUGHTER in each 5 pages you are going to read. And you ARE going to read it! As we all know, there is absolutely no glimpse of a doubt about Bill Bryson being THE funniest man alive. He is out to get you. I mean, you know that he…

Erasmus – Praise of Folly

Erasmus – Praise of Folly November 23, 2018

Score: 10/10 Erasmus was, obviously, a heavy metal punker taken to extreme! That we know… …or do we? You might have spent a semester abroad in the name of this good GOOOOOOD man, but do you even know who he was? Ah, you don’t. Never mind! Just listen to this song (help yourself out with this and come back to educate yourself a tiny bit more. Back already? Ah, I hoped you will listen also some other of their songs and maybe…
