Make Your Own Lunch by Ryan Porter
Make Your Own Lunch: How to Live an Epically Epic Life Through Work, Travel, Wonder, and (Maybe) College - Ryan Porter

This is one of those books you give to high school students or beginning college students.  The author provides motivational stories on making your own decisions about what you want to do with your life aka "make your own lunch".  The book is amusing and well written.  It's not a bad book, but I wonder how realistic some of the advice is.

The Secret Library by Oliver Tearle
The Secret Library - Oliver Tearle

The author states that the aim of this book is to "bring to light the lesser-know aspects of well-known books, and to show how obscure and little-known books have surprising links with the familiar world around us".  The book has generally managed to accomplish the stated aims.  This book is a collection of bits of information and commentary (with toilet humour attached) about the best-known and the least-known books ever written in English, European and American literature.  At first I found this book amusing and interesting, after a while it got rather tedious.

Jobs for People Who Hate People by Danielle Dixon
Jobs for People Who Hate People: The Ultimate Career Guide for Introverts - Danielle Dixon

This book describes the different types of introverts and then lists job descriptions that might be of interest to the different types of introverts.  The contents of this book may be useful for people just leaving school and needing career guidance, but not so useful for people looking to change careers.  It is deceiving in that the author does not mention that every job/career listed requires social interaction with people. The people you work with can make or break even the best jobs.  The author does not appear to have a good grasp of what the various science orientated careers entail, so I wonder how accurate the information on all the other careers is?  Working in a laboratory does not automatically make that career suitable for introverts!
