The War on Normal People by Andrew Yang – book review

Andrew Yang was a presidential candidate for the presidency of the United States for 2020. He withdrew pretty early but still made his mark.

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller – Book Review

Pure and utter confusion. That’s how I would start explaining this book. This book is an absolute chaos of many different characters, plotlines and themes. Symbolically it shows the chaos of war.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey – Book Review
