Many life episodes, some of them are touching, but most of them kind of self-talk. Not necessarily inspirational. However, it's still fun to share people's slices of lives.
Cagen’s goal in “To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us” is not to instruct on the how or why of list-making. If you’re seeking guidance in this area, then this isn’t the book for you. If, on the other hand, you’re intrigued by the practice and want to sneak a peek into the lives of others through reading actual lists then you’ve come to the right place. I love the lists, yes, but what I enjoy more is that Cagen puts the lists in context so you can more fully understand the list maker at the point in time when the list was written. This is an exploration into the idea that lists reveal more about us than just words on a piece of paper. Our lists can be like journal entries marking the path from where we once were to where we are now.
Each chapter contains lists on a particular topic, a quote from the list’s author putting the list into context, a ‘DIY List Idea’ and (my favorite) a one-liner by the author on something clever in the list. The chapter titles are (1) daily, (2) life, (3) New Year’s resolutions, (4) dream jobs and bored at work, (5) ideal mates, (6) relationships, (7) sex, (8) obsessive-compulsive, (9) health and sickness, (10) family and friends, (11) happiness and hates.
