Book: “The Ultra Mind Solution”, by Mark Hyman

4 years ago I read the book ‘It starts with Food: Discover the Whole 30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways.” by Dallas & Melissa Hartwig. At that time, I agreed to betting – to endure in a 30-day challenge that excludes added sugars, white flour and dairy products. Back then, all these nuances about nutrition were quite unknown to me and, to some extent, made me to READ MORE

Book: “Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ” by Giulia Enders

My attention was drawn to the illustration of the book cover and the fact, that its author is an extremely young girl from Germany. And, of course, the topic as such – the intestines. As many people have said already, the book is easy to read, with pleasant humor and associations that easily explains complicated things. Much of what is happening in the digestive system, I have heard, read READ MORE

Grāmata: Džūlija Endersa “Par zarnu šarmu”

Manu uzmanību piesaistīja grāmatas vāka ilustrācija un fakts, ka tās autore ir ārkārtīgi jauna meitene no Vācijas. Un, protams, arī tēma – zarnas. Kā jau daudzi par to ir izteikušies, grāmata ir viegli lasāma, ar patīkamu humoru un asociācijām izklāstot pietiekami sarežģītas lietas. Daudz no tā visa, kas notiek gremošanas sistēmā, bija dzirdēts, lasīts un studēts iepriekš. Bija lietas, kas bija piemirstas, bet šo to uzzināju arī no jauna. READ MORE

Book: ‘Meža meitas. 12 sievietes par dzīvi mājās, mežā, cietumā’* by Sanita Reinsone

*If you translate the title of the book to English, it would be something like this: “Daughters of woods. 12 women about their life at home, in forest, in prison”. This is not a book about magical ferries living in woods. It’s a book with ruthless, truth stories from the lives of those woman who were by different reasons ‘forced’ to go to live/hide in forests of Latvia. Each READ MORE

Book: ‘Customer Success’ by Nick Mehta, Dan Steinman, Lincoln Murphy and Maria Martinez

As I was joining the new world called “Customer Success”, I definitely had to understand it. The book confirmed that I have already been halfway in the Customer Success field, therefore, I already had half of the understanding of what it is and what it means. Based on a great example, this book nicely describes all aspects that are related, necessary to understand and vital to execute, for the READ MORE

Book: ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen R. Covey

I have always been very skeptic about a literature of this kind. It is somehow hard for me to ‘feel’ the book, just because of the teaching you to live or do this and you will achieve everything style of writing. But, as I have heard so many positive feedback about this book, I decided to give it a chance… In my opinion, there were described quite obvious things and situations. READ MORE

Book: ‘City of Lies’ by Ramita Navai

When I first saw this book – City of Lies: Love, Sex, Death, and the Search for Truth in Tehran by Ramita Navai – in a shelf of an airport’s book-shop, I was intrigued by its title. My knowledge about Iran was very limited, but stories, collected from various Tehranis with characters from very different social classes in Iran, let me glimpse into Iranian society and its contradictions.
