The Museum of Lost Wonder

Ok. I need to share this! My sister gave me this book as a gift, and it is the absolute coolest book I have ever owned. And I have owned a lot of books!

Let me explain this to you. Imagine a non-linear book with gorgeous layout, comprising bits and pieces of information regarding science, mysticism, philosophy, architecture, metaphysics, personal growth, and much more, all written in a whimsical, Santa Cruz, psycho-spiritual style. But wait. There's more! This incredible book includes numerous models that the reader can build to expand one's ways of thinking. Jeff Hoke did a great job with this. It makes me so happy!

But be forewarned -- the book will not make sense if you attempt to read it from front to back. If you pick it up now and again and let yourself imagine you are in a museum, you will fall in love with it. I recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a well-written book, enjoys beauty, likes to build, or wants to learn... about anything!
