Since you may be spending a lot of time at home, I thought I would share some of my favorites books and shows for your entertainment and enrichment  – 

Non-Fiction Books:

  1. The Telomere Miracle – by yours truly. I spent two years writing this for you. It explains physiology of breathing, sleep, consciousness, exercise, diet, and supplements. No longer in print but available on Kindle.
  2. The Power of Now– Eckhart Tolle. Leading new age guru makes a strong case for the falseness of ego and the latent joy of being present 

Fiction books:

  1. The Little Prince – de Saint-Exupery. In this tight allegory disguised as a children’s book, you may find the answers to life’s questions are much simpler than we realize
  2. The Catcher in the Rye – JD Salinger. Who isn’t a phoney? Why are you so angry? The quintessential book about alienation and teen angst. Who were you when you were first forced to read this? How have you changed?

Music: 

  1. King Crimson – Discipline. Prog rock masterpiece with many high-concept rockin’ tunes; Feels like a wax Bento of tasty tunes. It took me 40 years to “get” Elephant Talk
  2. Yo-Yo-Ma- Six Unaccompanied Cello Suites by Bach. The warmth of the cello combined with the logically beautiful notions of Bach. Great music to study to.

TV: 

  1. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – Amazon Prime. I defy anyone to watch this Eisenhower Era- comedy without a constant grin on your face. Sets, costumes, acting are all on point but the R-rated take of housewife turned stand-up comedienne never fails to disappoint. Every episode a gem thus far! Laughter is the best medicine so boost your immune system with this masterpiece. My review is here.
  2. Altered Carbon – Netflix. For fans of the Sci-Fi Genre of cyberpunk, here comes “biopunk”. In the future, transferring your consciousness into a new body is as easy as plugging in a USB disc. Who would want to stop this? The answer may surprise you.

Movies:

  1. Kieslowski’s White – Second in the Polish master’s “Colors” trilogy of Red, White, and Blue. The ultimate existential crisis and a testament to the power of the medium even without large budgets
  2. Susanne Bier’s “After the Wedding” – Master Danish Auteur has a unique gift for presenting surprising human dilemmas in a riveting fashion. Sparse and emotionally engaging, her work seldom disappoints.
