I count on hearing from friends about things they think I would enjoy. I look to them for advice on books, movies, recipes and more. So here are a few things that I recommend:
- “This Old Man”—I’m probably not the first to recommend to the world “This Old Man,” Roger Angell’s marvelous musings on life in his nineties that appeared in The New Yorker in February. You will love it.
- “Blue is the Warmest Color”—This 2013 movie about the sexual awakening of a French teenager got a lot of attention, largely because of its long lesbian sex scenes. But the movie is so much more than that, and the acting of 19-year old, Adèle Exarchopoulos is extraordinary. It’s available now on DVD.
- Amy Cuddy—Spend twenty-one minutes watching one of the most viewed TED talks ever in which Amy Cuddy, a professor at Harvard Business School, shares her research on body language. It’s never too late to become powerful.
