The past few years have been a study in appreciating what we have before it’s gone and learning new ways to love, whether in a romantic sense or simply by doing a better job of caring for one another and ourselves. And though it was written more than 20 years ago, All About Love, by the late, legendary bell hooks, is a fitting guide to the current state of the world. In it, hooks uses personal experiences to examine society’s lack of caring, compassion, and unity. “The word love is most often defined as a noun, yet … we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” she writes.

At a time when we could all use more connection, not to mention more lessons in Black feminism, this testament to hooks’s enduring brilliance should be required reading. And today it’s on sale both at Bookshop and on Amazon. You don’t need to wait for a holiday to give a copy of All About Love as a gift, but it would make a particularly nice one for Valentine’s Day.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
