5.0 out of 5 stars Truthfully...it's amazing!, Feb. 19 2016
This review is from: Lying (Hardcover)
Not many books can be said to have changed your life, let alone very short ones, but my attitude towards honestly has changed dramatically. It's such a simple concept that is spelled out perfectly in this book. My life is better by reading it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mostly boring, Feb. 19 2016
I'm sure this book would be useful to an artist, but all I got from it was that artists have different rituals, which I already assumed. Most rituals were banal and I found myself skipping though many entries trying to find interesting details.

I had a huge amount of respect for Maajid before I read this and My respect has only grown. I thought it would have been a much more uncomfortable conversation, but both really did have a dialogue. I found it hugely informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, Feb. 20 2012
I'm on my 3rd book by Mary. Packing for Mars is excellent. Before I opened the book I really had no idea what the challenges were for a mission to mars. I thought landing a spacecraft on mars and getting off would be mostly what the book was about but I was completely amazed that the hardest thing to deal with in a mars mission is ourselves.

Definitely worth checking out.
