Unusual in structure, ambitious in depth and breadth alike, this five person literary biography (Auden, Eliot, C.S. Lewis, Simone Weil, Jacques Maritain) showcases Jacobs’ scholarly brilliance. But it also presents the urgent, probing zeitgeist among Allied country’s Christian writers, poets, and public intellectuals as WWII begins to turn in their nations’ favor. Their engagement with the war’s  — and in particular, it’s new technologies’ —  lasting effects on hearts and minds, on education and the humanist tradition, in one crucible year, deserves contemplation today.

Berry is a master of the poem, of the short story, and of the novel, but it is as an essayist that his prerogatives and perspectives are most full throated. His big heartedness, his far-groping head, and his wizened hands work in tandem to bring the social sciences (all of them!) and the policies of the polis to bear on matters of the heart in this collection of the prolific octogenarian’s essays.

I’m no connoisseur of the genre (in fact I’m quite skeptical...) but Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life definitely delivers as billed. Part presentation of cutting edge research into circadian rhythms, part beginner’s elucidation of the Ayurvedic tradition corroborated by said research, the book is eminently practical, wholly workable, and might actually change your life — albeit in the most minute, sustainable, of ways.
