Recent Books — Aware, Buddha’s Brain, Missing, Presumed, Our Little Secret

  • Aware by Daniel J. Siegel.  A recommended text on meditation, but too much handwavey pseudo science for me.  Did not find worthwhile at all, rather found it annoying.
  • Buddha’s Brain by Rick Hanson.  Another text on meditation, way better with much more underpinning and solid practical guidance.  And there is an app!
  • Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner.  Excellent start to a detective series, central character is mid-career detective in London with a complex and messy personal life, embroiled in a high profile missing persons case.  Very good.
  • Our Little Secret by Roz Nay.  Ooh a dark little tale about obsession, betrayal.  Nicely structured.
