Fifty Years Inside An Artist's Mind: The Journal of Athena Tacha by Athena Tacha chronicles the artist's journey from 1969 - 2019 and her search to find her way with the help of cosmology and the natural world. Spanning fifty years, the author's fascination with cosmology will leave readers awestruck. The author speaks about discovering herself in art and took good care of her health as she moved head-on to her main goal, artmaking. The book has been divided into five sections, spanning years, in which the author's thoughts and impressions have been shared aesthetically. Also, her process of aging and other personal subjects and habits give readers insights about the artist.

The journal gives extensive and expansive details about the author and her artistic mind, and the inexhaustible world of art gives readers a very honest and straightforward glimpse of the artist's perception of the world and her surroundings. Fifty Years Inside An Artist's Mind will captivate readers who enjoy contemporary art, the connectivity that exists between art and science, and the artist's thought process and perceptions that reveal her creative mind. Her views on the instability and fragility of human relationships are thought-provoking and deep, and the artist also tries to find out about the law of the Universe and apply it to her art. The presentation, formatting, and approach to the journal are aesthetic; the interconnectedness that exists in the Universe has been explained well, the images shared add color to the thoughts, experiences, and personal stories of the artist and her travel exposure is fascinating, making it easy for readers to connect with her words.
