Review: Books for Living by Will Schwalbe

Books for Living is a delightfully insightful little book that will have you aching to read each and every one of the novels mentioned therein. It is a chronicle of what Mr. Schwalbe has learned on his own private literary journey, and each chapter is dedicated to a different book that somehow moved or touched him. You, in turn, will be touched by Books for Living, and will be left pondering what books would make your shortlist.


For me, The Art of Travel by Alain de Botton and all of Thich Nhat Hanh’s work come to mind when I think of making such a list, as well as Ayn Rand’s Anthem. Leave your own list of books that have changed you in the comments, and I shall explore them.

A poet driven by the quill, a dreamer of impossible dreams, a lover of that which the world has deemed unlovable. We're all stories in the end. This is mine.
