The unknown craftsmen – Soetsu Yanagi
This book will challenge your ideas about art and beauty. It will make you think about the value of things made by anonymous craftsmen working in a set tradition for a lifetime.
The late Soetsu Yanagi was the first to fully explore the traditional Japanese appreciation for "objects born, not made." This book contains a translation of selected writings by Mr Yanagi, who saw folk art as a manifestation of the essential world from which art, philosophy, and religion arise and in which the barriers between them disappear. The implications of his ideas are both far-reaching and practical.
In this book, Soetsu Yanagi is introduced to Western readers for the first time. The late Bernard Leach, one of Japan's most essential potters and a friend of Mr Yanagi for fifty years has transmitted the insights of one of Japan's most influential thinkers. Seventy-six plates illustrate objects that underscore the universality of his concepts.

Bleak House – Charles Dickens
Bleak House is Charles Dickens's most remarkable novel because it depicts a legal system more interested in obstruction and obfuscation than resolution. It remains utterly contemporary. Dickens was an excellent actor; this novel is his performance as two disparate parts.
In summary, Bleak House is often considered a novel about the law. Still, it is about the sadness and souls of two women: one who traded happiness for security and one who is driven by insecurity because she does not know who she is, which is a book full of curiosities that you will not stop turning each page until you finish the whole book.
The Adventure of Tom Swayer – Mark Twain
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was first published in 1876 and is the most famous work of Mark Twain. This novel tells a lot of stories about a cheerful childhood. That said, the stories in it are based on Mark Twain's own experiences and the characters in it. Fresh and full of imagination, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer summons the inner child within the reader.
Mark Twain successfully extracted a boy's mind and put it down on paper. Overall, this book is very entertaining for both children and adults.

In Defense of Food – Micheal Pollan
Michael Pollan has written about the relationships between nature and culture for over two decades. This book explores the ethics and ecology of eating.

Patterns of Culture – Ruth Benedict
Initially published in 1934, Ruth Benedict's Patterns of Culture is a classic anthropological text that explores the relationship between culture and personality. Influenced by psychological theory, Benedict suggests that each culture has a "personality type" or worldview that patterns the attitudes and behaviours of individuals. She refers to this patterning as the gestalt or configuration of culture.
Benedict believed that each culture has its moral imperatives. She wrote in Patterns of Culture that she wished to show how each culture differs from others and how the people who live within those cultures perceive the world around them.
Benedict's focus on cultural relativism has been influential in many fields, from multicultural studies to education and health care, which aim to be sensitive to the needs of all population segments.
