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.

Format: Perfect Paperback
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.
