Kaizen: The Japanese Method for Transforming Habits, One Small Step at a Time

This is a simple, elegant book on the Japanese method of Kaizen – meaning ‘change’ ‘good’ – showing you how to make small, step-by-step changes to transform your life.

And the funniest tweet of the quarantine goes to… 

Shiv Ramdas on Twitter: “OMG my brother in law, the gift that never stops giving, was tired of being sent to get rice every day so he decided buy in bulk, talked to the shop about it, wires got crossed, now there is a literal TRUCK FILLED WITH RICE outside the house and my sister is losing her shit lmfao”
