Sunday Paper Recommends — Week of October 2, 2022
At The Sunday Paper, we want to inspire you to gather at your table—virtually or with friends and family—and open your heart and mind to conversations that will move the needle. After all, the dinner table is where we connect on topics and map out the changes we can all make that’ll truly make an impact.
This week, to encourage your conversations, we recommend checking out the following:
What We're Reading:
Floyd Patterson, Toni Morrison, and Babe Ruth. A boxer, a writer, and a baseball player. These seemingly unrelated individuals share one thing in common: self-discipline. In his new book Discipline is Destiny: The Power of Self Control, bestselling living philosopher Ryan Holiday analyzes the value of self-discipline from these historical figures. The ancient wisdom Holiday weaves into his work is more valuable than ever.
What We're Listening To:
Sam Harris is a neuroscientist, philosopher, and New York Times bestselling author. In his podcast, "Making Sense," Harris explores important questions about the human mind, society, and current events. He recently hosted human rights activist Yasmine Mohammed who shared her journey about escaping an arranged marriage with an Al-Qaeda member. The paywall for this episode has been removed for service journalism purposes. Listen to Mohammed's inspiring story here.
What We're Watching:
Imagine a world where Neil Armstrong is not the first person to walk on the Moon, the global space never ended, and countries compete to send the first person to Mars. "For All Mankind," one of the trending shows on Apple TV, explores this alternate space reality. If you're fascinated by the unknown in space and the work that is happening at NASA, this series is for you.
