The key to living a happier, healthier life is inside us. Our gut is almost as important to us as our brain or our heart, yet we know very little about how it works. In Gut, Giulia Enders shows that rather than the utilitarian and - let's be honest - somewhat embarrassing body part we imagine it to be, it is one of the most complex, important, and even miraculous parts of our anatomy.

this is one of the funniest, most informative books I've had the pleasure of listening to.
there's so much to learn about the way our bodies function and this book explains the gut and a few other things without being to" sciency". the author and the narrator did a fabulous job. will read again.

This book is not a Snuggie. The words on these pages will not go down like Ambien. I’m not writing to calm or coddle you. With God’s help, I intend to incite a riot in your mind. Trip your breakers and turn out the lights in your favorite hiding places of insecurity and fear. Then flip the switch back on so that God’s truth can illuminate the divine destiny that may have been lying dormant inside you for years. In short, I’m out to activate your audacious faith.

The real Bridget Jones. Bryony Gordon survived her adolescence by dreaming about the life she'd have in her 20s: the perfect job; the lovely flat; the amazing boyfriend. The reality was something of a shock. Her Telegraph column was a diary of her daily screw-ups; she lived in a series of squalid shoe boxes; and her most meaningful relationship of the entire decade was with a Marlboro Light.

This is a good book for an introduction to minimalism but is geared more towards people with families who haven't heard of minimalism.
If you have some introduction already, there might not be a lot of new information for you.
but good book overall.
