The untethered soul: the journey beyond yourself by Michael A. Singer

Dear book addicts, I am so happy that the request from guest contributors is increasing. Here is a post by Farah Al Dabbagh. Farah is a very talented young Saudi woman who I got the chance to work with. She literally embodies a future thought leader. I am honored to have her write on my blog as we share a common passion: books. I wanted to make sure that she is given the space to express herself, freely. I am thrilled to have a woman guess contributor from the Kingdom.

Lean in by Cheryl Sandberg

Lean In is a management guide. And this is not what I will be writing about. As much as it contains practical suggestions for sailing through the challenges that arise throughout career advancement (the author describes as a “jungle gym”), this is not what I liked about the book.

The man in the white sharkskin suit by Lucette Lagnado

The book is about a Jewish family’s exodus from old Cairo to the new world. It is actually a memoir full of stories about family, tragedy, and triumph. This is a book I recommend particularly if you are passionate about politics. Still, you would enjoy it if you would like to read a memoir (something I personally enjoy very much).

Tiny beautiful things by Cheryl Strayed (aka Sugar)

I read this book about a year ago and it soon became among my favorite books. In French we call it “livre de chevet”, a book you keep by your bed, one you read more than once, one you open at random pages at random times.
