I wrote brief reviews of the following books that were released this week:

by C. Christopher Smith, editor of The Englewood Review of Books
 
 
Becoming Wise:
An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living

* * * * * (out of 5 stars)

Imagining a more meaningful and more elegant way of life.
Krista Tippett, the host of public radio’s On Being, weaves threads of her own story with sizable clips of interviews from the show to offer us a rich vision of what it might look like for us to become wise in the twenty-first century.

Tippett helps us loosen our bonds and imagine a more meaningful and more elegant way of life.
