I am NOT an avid reader. Shamefully, I admit this truth. So when I put a book on this list it is because I find it of great value!
Alameda’s Awakening by Tara Pegasus. “An edgy novel about mental illness, set in the 1950s, Alameda’s Awakening outlines the cognitive dissonance of a young violinist tormented by her strict religious faith.”
The Emotional First+Aid Kit by Cynthia L. Alexander, PsyD. Subtitled, ‘A Practical Guides to Life After Bariatric Surgery’. I need to read this a second time now that I am 4+ months out from my own bariatric surgery. It is easy to read, put down, pick up later, etc. Sound behavioral insights.
