  1. I'm looking for this book, I believe I read a paragraph of it before it fully released or something of the like. Though now I'd really like to get the book but I have no idea what it's called or what it's really about, the only thing I remember about it was that the author was talking about things such as "what would you do with your life if money wasn't an issue, if you just got out of highschool, but before you want to start working on a career you'd like to travel the world and meet people, but don't have the money. What if I gave you all the money you needed, what if it was never an issue in the first place, what would you do". I understand that's most definitely not what was said work for word but that's mostly how I remember the text. If anyone can help me find this book on what small amount of information I've provided I'd be extremely appreciative. The only other thing was I believe the author was a wealthy and we'll renowned philosopher, though I could be mistaken.
  2. I recently finished reading The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen Year Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida. This book is one of the most excellent works of non-fiction I have ever read. It is very short, definitely no more than two hundred pages, and incredibly compelling. I read the entire book in a little over an hour. It is written primarily in Q&A style, with Naoki answering questions about living with autism. This is augmented by several beautifully written, fictional stories by Naoki, with one longer story at the end. Naoki, the author, who was only thirteen at the time he wrote the book, is so articulate for his age it is mindblowing. I would definitely recommend!
