The award-winning New York Times bestseller about the extraordinary things that can happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart Growing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart. Doty would go on to put Ruth’s practices to work with extraordinary results—power and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruth’s most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous results—until he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.

Love and marriage are two of the greatest gifts life has to offer, yet too many marriages fail because couples don’t fully understand the five stages of relationships. Because most of us have had hurtful experiences in past relationships, often going back to childhood, we develop an inaccurate love map that causes us to get off track when the stresses of life increase. For more than 40 years, Jed Diamond has been helping couples repair even the most damaged relationships and reweave the broken strands of marriage. In The Enlightened Marriage, Dr. Diamond will help you: Get through Stage Three—Disillusionment without losing your love. Understand that when your partner says, “I love you, but I’m not in love with you anymore,” it is not the end, but the beginning of Stage Four—Real Lasting Love. Learn why healing childhood wounds is the greatest gift of love you can give and receive from your partner. Recognize and address the mid-life stresses of “manopause,” irritable male syndrome, and male-type depression. Follow your calling in Stage Five to make a real difference in the world.

In a world beset by conflicting ideologies, Gee urges us to look to a broader set of ideas from seemingly unrelated disciplines for a viable vision of education. He proposes a framework of principles that can be used to reconceptualize education, specifically literacy, to better prepare students to be collaborators toward peace and sustainability.
