Tara Swart, author of The Source: Open Your Mind, Change Your Life, brings us a great list of books! Before jumping into the interview, please check out Tara's book:
Q. Do you have a favourite smart thinking book (and why that book)?
Who Moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson. Because this book is allegorical, I get the answer I need no matter what the issue is that I’m facing. I have read it several times and learnt something new each time. It is also very quick and easy to read!
Q. What's the most recent smart thinking book you've read (and how would you rate it)?
The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. This book is about smart thinking from a spiritual anchor and it gives you perspective on what is really important in life and whether you are spending your time, attention and energy in those areas or not. I rate it very highly as it is life-changing.
Q. Do you have a favourite childhood book?
I have so many! I read voraciously as a child. Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome really captivated my imagination.
Q. Do you prefer reading on paper, Kindle or listening to an audiobook?
Paper - I love the smell and feel of old books. I do use Kindle on vacations though.
Q. Do you have a favourite bookshop (and why that shop)?
Foyles in central London is a book shop that also holds medical supplies so I discovered it when I was first a medical student. It has floors and floors of books and you could get lost in there. It’s tranquil and has a huge history. It’s been refurbished now but it felt special to go there to do my first book-signing for The Source. They also now deliver globally from their online store so I love the fact that it’s an icon and progressive too!
