Isabel | In the City
‘What makes a city great? This question keeps me up at night. Joel Kotkin proves by traveling through history how successful cities were the ones that assured security, opportunity and sacredness (cohesion). Also, he makes me think critically on challenges faced by cities right now. Therefore, a must read.’

Gwenda  | City on Fire
‘City on Fire. The only reason I bought this book is, off course, the name. Actually it’s a gift for our Rinske, because the book has her last name and it’s all about one of her favourite cities NYC. Hopefully soon, I’ll find some time to read those 1000+ pages. After that the book is all yours Rinske.’

Thomas | The power of habit
‘How does daily structure translate to our current situation. Can we use this time to break old habits and start fresh? Is there a healthy work life balance at home? These questions let me to the book habits from Charles Duhigg. He explains that radical changes are a great time to build new habits, and teaches you how to sustain them!’
