quite possibly one of the most miserable depressing boring books that I have ever read.
If reading uninspired snippets of people leading drab and pointless lives excites you this is the book for you. Otherwise read ANYTHING else.

Circe / Madeline Miller.
Author: Miller, Madeline, author.
Publisher: London Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018.

Circe a failure as a divine but a success as a witch with the power of transformation of turning men into swine. Madeline Miller places her within the Greek pantheon of gods and episodes that have inspired ever since. Prometheus punished for bringing fire to mortals because fire was a change Daedalus the inventor dreaming of escape Minos and the minotaur and her part in the story of Odysseus is changed to his part in the story of Circe. Circe feels trapped by her divinity never changing and wants to join the world of life which transforms itself until death. The scholarship is exquisite as is the telling of the story from Circe the naiad who becomes Circe the witch who becomes Circe the mortal.

A novel about art versus fatherhood. In the beginning the mere touch of a father figure could induce madness. Fathers fail throughout from wrong choices or controlling choices. Through the differing time periods and regimes from 1930's to the Germany to be in the 1960's fathers are shown as constraining choices. Art is the escape to overcome the paternalistic view upon the world. The protagonist a male artist has to confront this paradigm while wanting to be a father himself. A film shot lovingly to capture the essence of art overcoming societal bonds that constrain.

Advice for working moms.
Author: Review, Harvard Business. -- Harvard Business Review Press, author.

There is lots of great advice in this book but what a pity the book is inherently sexist. What about working dad's Surely this is a book about working parents and the title should say that. By calling it 'advice for working moms' the author and publisher are really just reinforcing cultural norms that underpin a sexist division of labour presuming that the caring and family support work will be done by the woman. Calling it 'advice for working parents' would be more accurate and would help break down the sexist stereotypes and open up more men and women to the possibility that dad's can and should take on caring and family work as well as paid work.
