📒From Ikaria To The Stars ✍ Peter Green
📝From Ikaria to the Stars Book Synopsis : "I hadn't, till I really started digging, gauged the fierce intensity of the need for myth in the human psyche, of any age, or sensed the variety of motives dictating that need," writes Peter Green in the introduction to this wide-ranging collection of essays on classical mythology and the mythic experience. Using the need for myth as the starting point for exploring a number of topics in Greek mythology and history, Green advances new ideas about why the human urge to make myths persists across the millennia and why the borderland between mythology and history can sometimes be hard to map. Green looks at both specific problems in classical mythology and larger theoretical issues. His explorations underscore how mythic expression opens a door into non-rational and quasi-rational modes of thought in which it becomes possible to rewrite painful truths and unacceptable history—which is, Green argues, a dangerous enterprise. His study of the intersections between classical mythology and Greek history ultimately drives home a larger point, "the degree of mythification and deception (of oneself no less than of others) of which the human mind is capable."

📒Ikaria ✍ Diane Kochilas
📝Ikaria Book Synopsis : The remote and lush island of Ikaria in the northeastern Aegean is home to one of the longest-living populations on the planet, making it a "blue zone." Much of this has been attributed to Ikaria's stress-free lifestyle and Mediterranean diet--daily naps, frequent sex, a little fish and meat, free-flowing wine, mindless exercise like walking and gardening, hyper-local food, strong friendships, and a deep-rooted disregard for the clock. No one knows the Ikarian lifestyle better than Chef Diane Kochilas, who has spent much of her life on the island. Part cookbook, part travelogue, Kochilas's Ikaria is an introduction to the food-as-life philosophy and a culinary journey through luscious recipes, gorgeous photography, and captivating stories from locals. Capturing the true spirit of the island, Kochilas explains the importance of shared food, the health benefits of raw and cooked salads, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations, the greens and herbal teas that are used in the kitchen and in the teapot as "medicine," and the nutritional wisdom inherent in the ingredients and recipes that have kept Ikarians healthy for so long. Ikaria is more than a cookbook. It's a portrait of the people who have achieved what so many of us yearn for: a fuller, more meaningful and joyful life, lived simply and nourished on real, delicious, seasonal foods that you can access anywhere.
📒Yiasou Ikaria ✍ Dimitri Mantakounis
📝Yiasou Ikaria Book Synopsis : Ikaria, sitting almost in the middle of the Aegean Sea, shaped like a crooked finger pointing accursedly at Turkey, has been stereotyped as a backwater Greek island for ages. Maybe, because of this Ikarians developed into a proud, but also strange and almost exotic group of islanders as labeled by their fellow Greeks. "Yiasou Ikaria" is a collection of short vignettes featuring an assortment of unusual charming characters who find themselves in bizarre and hilarious situations, defining what a true Ikarian is. So, grab your favorite Greek beverage, an ouzo, a frappe, or a potent coffee and spend some time on this uniquely Greek island with its equally entertaining cast of characters.
