Will Schwalbe, Books for Living
From the author of the bestselling and beloved The End of Your Life Book Club comes a wonderfully engaging new book: both a celebration of reading in general and an impassioned recommendation of specific books that can help guide us through our daily lives.
"I've always believed that everything you need to know you can find in a book," writes Will Schwalbe in his introduction to this thought-provoking, heartfelt, and inspiring new book about books. In each chapter he makes clear the ways in which a particular book has helped to shape how he leads his own life and the ways in which it might help to shape ours. He talks about what brought him to each book - or vice versa; the people in his life he associates each book with; how each has led him to other books; and how each is part of his understanding of himself in the world.
Will Schwalbe has worked in publishing, digital media, and as a journalist, writing for various publications, including The New York Times and the South China Morning Post. He is the author of The End of Your Life Book Club, and coauthor, with David Shipley, of Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better.
