3 Books With Neil Pasricha

May 15, 2018

Welcome to the first chapter of 3 Books recorded live in an open bookstore!

Book City is in the heart of Toronto's beautiful Bloor West Village neighborhood and that's where I settled into the children's section to talk blame, beauty, and growth with my favorite bookseller in the world -- the one and only Sarah Ramsey.

I love Sarah because she takes the art of bookselling seriously and seemingly reads people’s minds to find the exact book they need to help them grow. As we always say: Humans are the best algorithm.

Listen in to hear us touch on themes of beauty, loss, and honoring ones we love...

What you'll learn:

  • What makes a great bookseller?
  • Who owns grief after loss? 
  • How do you honor a life through storytelling?
  • What Judy Blume book is the first to appear on 3 Books?
  • What is one of the funniest stories I’ve ever heard involving marital guilt, shame, and Kindles?
  • Why are humans the best algorithms?
  • How can books transcend generations?
  • What memoir helped invent the category -- and have we "over-memoired" ourselves?
  • Why can you judge a book by its cover?
