Mindful : February 2018
“Writing is an act of the imagination.... When we dream back in time to describe things that happened long ago, imagination enables us to recreate from memory.” An acclaimed journalist, author, and writing teacher, Matousek invites readers to know themselves more authentically through what he calls radical truth-telling. “Literary talent is irrel- evant here,” he says. “The strengths you need are courage, transparency, com- mitment to the truth, and a sincere desire to transcend your story.” It’s common that we aren’t (or don’t want to be) aware that we have “stories” to transcend, which is par t of what makes this book so thought provok- ing. Matousek offers both theory—including lessons from his life and former stu- dents—and practice, in the form of writing prompts. The exercises are intended to be challenging, leading us to reexamine ingrained beliefs about who we are and who we’re supposed to be.

Some choices are conscious and some are not, but all are shaped by factors within our environments— grocery store layouts, celebrities, plate color and size, and social norms are just a few examples. With bite-sized chapters citing plenty of research and offering helpful tidbits of advice, this handy book points out many of the assumptions and mental habits that shape how we relate to food.
