Although the book may not have a gender bias, the reviewer does. He states that for “Most people” going to work is a big portion of your time, in answer to tHe question “ what thing do you wake up every day looking to accomplish?”He goes on to say that “most people” going to work is in order to make money, right?This leaves out the large number of care givers to children (the sick, the elderly) which is largely unpaid or underpaid, and often performed by women. I don’t need to listen to such bias on a podcast.

Smart and inspiring

There’s a lot to love about On Books. It’s kind of like being in a two-person book club where the other person understood the material a lot better than you did but is generous and patient enough to explain it to you.The podcast covers many books I’ve read and loved, as well as others that are new to me. Chris gives enough of an overview for listeners to understand the value of a particular work and whether it’s worth a full read (strangely, the answer is always yes). If you want to be smarter, make better use of your time, and contribute to the world at a higher level, this is the podcast for you.

How not to die

Thank you for the episode about how not to die! I love the information, the less than 25 minutes aspect, and how your enjoyment of the book shows through.

Awesome!!!

I read a few of the books covered on this podcast, years ago. This podcast summed up the books perfect so I didn't have to go back and re-read. Super excited for more podcasts!

Insightful Meditations on Texts

Creative, funny, and well-researched, Chris Castiglione's podcast is always an enjoyable listen. His weekly choice of books is stellar and focused on practical takeaways from each texts. I love his treatment of each book, how he dissects the main arguments by the author, and the ramifications on his life. It really makes you reevaluate your assumptions about the world and the values and principles that shape your life. Highly recommended. Keep up the great work, Chris.

The Show Rocks!

On Books is a podcast worth every moment of your time. Why? The host Chris Castiglione reviews a spectacular collection of books varying from, romance to spiritual awareness - with a big dollop of humour, energy, personality and vigour. He does so in such an awe-inspiring manner, that you feel: lured in, connected, encapsulated, intellectually stimulated, educated, elevated and lastly, challenged to explore yourself further.Chris manages to put most author's words into relatable, understandable and doable action points. On Books reviews on 'Essentialism' by Greg McKeown, 'The Art of Living' by Eric Fromm, and 'The Artist's Way' by Julia Cameron are few such examples where you are left with, worthwhile mental to-do lists. These lists have most certainly changed my way of life and inspired me to take a completely different view on life. Finally, On Books is not about what books you should read, but more about adopting a new way of life - through the 'appealing voice' of a storyteller. It's most definitely worth a listen, a spell worth being under.

Like suggested books from a smart friend

Chris Castig does the work that many readers want but have no time to do. He scours the shelves to find the books that truly add value to one's life. Chris is a modern Renaissance man, and this is reflected in his wide-ranging yet always engaging book discussions. Check out his archives and you'll notice something...every book he discusses may not be for you, but there's at least one book on there for everybody. On Books has earned a time slot in my morning commute.

Self Maintenance

I just started listening to "On Books" and have already made it part of my daily routine (I have some catching up to do). It's so hard as an adult wth a full time job and young child to find the time to talk about/research/discuss literature, be it a new book or loved book from the past. So, taking time each day to listen to this podcast has really helped me maintain my sense of being an adult and individual. Thank you for doing what you do!
