The first book of the year:
We chose this book to kick off the year, because boxes are everywhere, even in business. It’s a deeper topic and one we should definitely explore further and this book allows us to look into why we tend to use boxes, sometimes without realising that we’re doing it.
About the Story of Boxes:
By investigating our unconscious and conscious boxes – and sharing inspirational stories and easy-to-grasp examples – this always cogent, sometimes funny book gives you a new way of thinking about reality. The book explores some of humanity’s most salient and enduring boxes, including gender, race, sexuality, religion, and class – and gives you a key to unlock the boxes in your own mind.
The Story Of Boxes, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly - The Secret to Human Liberation, Peace and Happiness by Rúna Magnúsdóttir and Nicholas Haines is a new way of looking at the world, explains what limits us as human beings, and sets us on a path to be and love who we truly are.
