NPR REVIEW: "Lindholm's Voyeur is a fine book to have in hand when you need to sit quietly and contemplate the weirdness and wonders of life. His handsomely illustrated and thought-provoking collection of musings offers pithy truths and insights, applicable to everything from work and politics to love and religion."

Format: Perfect Paperback
"Alluring" is not often a word that I would use to describe a philosophical work. Astute? Yes. Provoking? Sometimes. But Notes of Disquiet manages to be all of the above, without becoming pretentious, and in so few words. It is consumable by anyone, I think, regardless of whether or not you'd normally read philosophy. Notes of Disquiet would be right at home in a collection like Penguin's Great Ideas series, alongside Seneca's "On the Shortness of Life" and Marcus Aurelius's "Meditations". Like those, brevity is certainly no indication of quality; while succinct, it still left a great impression.

If you're interested in this work, be prepared to contemplate it. The thoughts within are highly provoking and give the reader no more than is necessary. You read to learn more about yourself than anything else.

Enjoy! I certainly did.

This book is full of material for everyone who wants to broaden their thinking with new ideas. I recommend curling up by a nice warm fire (possibly with a glass of wine) and letting the words and illustrations on these pages remove you from your daily grind, and take you somewhere new and exciting. It is an excellent piece of literature and a must have for any collection.

Is it too early to call this the book of the decade? After four full years, I have not seen anything approaching the magnificence of this masterpiece, either in the literary-philosophical realm, nor in the world at large. I admit that one could live without the wisdom of this book, but it would not be a full life. So, you have two choices: live a pitiful, miserable, lonely existence without it, or read it to have life subtle mysteries unraveled before your very eyes.

If I remember, I will come back to edit this entry in 5 years.

This is a wonderful book that I have enjoyed quite a bit. I loved sitting down with it and a coffee on the weekends just reading it, taking it all in, and thinking about it. The fact that it made you think and contemplate was my favorite part. It was very unique because the book was so engaging, it was almost as if it was asking you questions. I definitely recommend this to anyone. It's a very different experience and I highly recommend this to anyone to go through, it's quite wonderful.
