    One thought on “And Never Stop Dancing: Thirty More True Things You Need to Know Now”

    1. The thirty brief essays in this book by a Columbia Md psychiatrist have wonderfully aphoristic titles paradox governs our lives, much of what we think we know is untrue, forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves, every snowflake in an avalanche pleads not guilty, etc He writes about family, love, grief, growing older, social and moral responsibilities, and his own life experiences, including his service in the military and Vietnam One essay, Attachment is the source of all suffering , begins It is [...]

    2. Received this book as part of an inherited library A friend of a friend moved away, left the friend their books, and this was one of the books my friend didn t want, so he offered it and others to me Since I ll read anything, and I have a Little Free Library to keep stocked, I took whatever he offered.I enjoy these short essay style bits of wisdom In the same vein as Don t Sweat the Small Stuff, Livingston gives some quality bits of life advice In some instances, his words helped me clarify some [...]

    3. I love Dr Livingston s books There are always several passages that speak to me directly He reminds me of things I already know but sometimes dont want to face.

    4. A quick and easy to read collection of thirty essays by Livingston, a veteran and a psychologist For some people, this book will go deep.My favorite part was the chapter on paradoxes.

    5. I read the description and laughed at the phrase fresh truths Probably half of the truths inside this book made an appearance in the previous work Too soon old, too late smart Perhaps Livingston felt it was necessary to elaborate on things mentioned in passing.Some define happiness as the ratio between accomplishment and expectations, and it must be noted that both are self defined We can be proud of the smallest achievements, if we so choose.We do not release transgressors from accountability b [...]

    6. Using the same short essay approach that made Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart such a interesting and insightful read, And Never Stop Dancing collects 30 observations about how we live and relate to one another, distilling the wisdom of Dr Livingston s experiences as a psychiatrist and a student of the human condition.I am not usually a fan of self help books What makes this one stand out is its clear eyed outlook and direct, unadorned style Livingston does not hold to simple remedies to complex pro [...]

    7. Good inspiration, I would say a lot of wisdom from lifetime experience I would recommend Writing down quotes from the different books I read, I wrote 23 of them for this one, that is quite a lot So for sure I would say that I found something in this book.However, not being american, at time, I did not feel the same calling a bit moralist, certainly someone who is still angry at his government Bush was President at the time of writing the book Yes, we all know that Vietnam was a BIG mistake and w [...]

    8. Though there were little nuggets of interesting insights, I found great swarths of this book, and its predecessor, largely useless As others have described, many chapters were largely repetitive, espoused subjective experience as fact or were just personal stories that seemed to have no connection to a larger point Livingston s commentaries on the futility of war, the responsibility of nations and how he found meaning after the death of his sons I found particularly fascinating and worthwhile ho [...]

    9. Choose you partner VERY carefully take care of your children don t be worried by a divorce, just do it don t parent if you are a step parent enjoy your old age die gracefully these are few suggestions which the author has given in this book The book seems like a senior citizen who happens to be a psychiatrist too sitting on a bench in a park, reflecting on his life Nothing impressive.I like the title of the book though That is quite inspiring.

    10. OK, but way too much repetition of similar ideas from the first book Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart Also, the chapter titles things to know often don t correspond completely with the content at times the writing seems to veer off topic Many chapters were somewhat lacking in structure and cohesiveness.Nevertheless, there are some gems of wisdom throughout the book and in the previous book that are worth knowing.

    11. Food for ThoughtThought provoking, insightful discussion of grief, wholeness, authenticity, growing old by a psychoanalyst who suggests we know than we think He tells us we are ourselves sources of solutions to life s dilemmas Highly recommended I look forward to reading of Dr Livingston s writings.

    12. I enjoy reading these sort of booksspirational, how to be happy and kind etc to enjoy life You only have to learn one new little thing and it is worth the read This book in particular is easy to readort chapters which one can read on their own without having to read the whole book.

    13. While there were some chapters I disagreed with, the overall text is a concise read with practical counsel I ve adopted the method of creating my own obituary despite being 22 years young which will be routinely updated throughout my entire life.

    14. The chapters are short but each brings an intriguing story endured by Livingston s personal life He is a master at story telling I consider this book authentic and very grounded It brings consciousness and awareness through the defining lens of experience and age.

    15. Interesting perspectives from a man that has many life experiences and a window into human behavior through his career choice These are truly aspects in everyones lives and things we should all be contemplating Good read

    16. This isn t a story it s simply inspiration an understanding, written by someone who has seen a fair bit and understands the human mind i like books like this who doesn t need a little bit inspiration or knowlegde in their life

    17. The sequel to Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart and it s just as genius Everything I said about that one applies to this one too

    18. I loved it I m currently reading the prequel to this book, and am surprised to find that I don t love it as much.

    19. I don t know what it was about this book but I had a hard time getting through it, something about him bugged me Oh well, you win some you lose some I might try reading again at a later stage.
