After the tragic sinking of a cargo ship, one solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild, blue Pacific. The only survivors from the wreck are a sixteen-year-old boy named Pi, a hyena, a zebra with a broken leg, a female orang-utan - and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger. Since it was first published in 2002, Life of Pi has entered mainstream consciousness and remains one of the most extraordinary works of fiction in recent years. In October 2005 Canongate launched a competition with The Times to find an artist to illustrate Yann Martel's international bestseller. Soon the competition expanded as the Globe and Mail and The Age newspapers also launched a search in Canada and Australia. From thousands of entries, Croatian artist Tomislav Torjanac was chosen as the illustrator for this new edition of Life of Pi. Now readers can enjoy this extraordinary tale with his glorious colour illustrations.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Fifteen years after The Life of Pi, Yann Martel is taking us on another long journey. Fans of his Man Booker Prize–winning novel will recognize familiar themes from that seafaring phenomenon, but the itinerary in this imaginative new book is entirely fresh. . . . Martel’s writing has never been more charming.”—Ron Charles, The Washington Post NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR In Lisbon in 1904, a young man named Tomás discovers an old journal. It hints at the existence of an extraordinary artifact that—if he can find it—would redefine history. Traveling in one of Europe’s earliest automobiles, he sets out in search of this strange treasure. Thirty-five years later, a Portuguese pathologist devoted to the murder mysteries of Agatha Christie finds himself at the center of a mystery of his own and drawn into the consequences of Tomás’s quest. Fifty years on, a Canadian senator takes refuge in his ancestral village in northern Portugal, grieving the loss of his beloved wife. But he arrives with an unusual companion: a chimpanzee. And there the century-old quest will come to an unexpected conclusion. The High Mountains of Portugal—part quest, part ghost story, part contemporary fable—offers a haunting exploration of great love and great loss. Filled with tenderness, humor, and endless surprise, it takes the reader on a road trip through Portugal in the last century—and through the human soul. Praise for The High Mountains of Portugal “Just as ambitious, just as clever, just as existential and spiritual [as Life of Pi] . . . a book that rewards your attention . . . an excellent book club choice.”—San Francisco Chronicle “There’s no denying the simple pleasures to be had in The High Mountains of Portugal.”—Chicago Tribune “Charming . . . Most Martellian is the boundless capacity for parable. . . . Martel knows his strengths: passages about the chimpanzee and his owner brim irresistibly with affection and attentiveness.”—The New Yorker “A rich and rewarding experience . . . [Martel] spins his magic thread of hope and despair, comedy and pathos.”—USA Today “I took away indelible images from High Mountains, enchanting and disturbing at the same time. . . . As whimsical as Martel’s magic realism can be, grief informs every step of the book’s three journeys. In the course of the novel we burrow ever further into the heart of an ape, pure and threatening at once, our precursor, ourselves.”—NPR “Refreshing, surprising and filled with sparkling moments of humor and insight.”—The Dallas Morning News “We’re fortunate to have brilliant writers using their fiction to meditate on a paradox we need urgently to consider—the unbridgeable gap and the unbreakable bond between human and animal, our impossible self-alienation from our world.”—Ursula K. Le Guin, The Guardian “[Martel packs] his inventive novel with beguiling ideas. What connects an inept curator to a haunted pathologist to a smitten politician across more than seventy-five years is the author’s ability to conjure up something uncanny at the end.”—The Boston Globe “A fine home, and story, in which to find oneself.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

There are essential truths in life, truths that help us exist in love, peace, and harmony with our surroundings and with others. These truths are the foundation for a joyful life! They are critical to happiness and wholeness because they open our hearts, minds, and spirits to the true nature of our being: Love. Once we embrace the true nature of our being we're on the path to True and Lasting Fulfillment and Success! The Pi of Life shares these essential truths with you in an easy to read and enjoyable format. There are many paths to discover these truths. Some paths are beautiful and flow into enlightenment with grace and ease. Other paths are fraught with heartbreak and darkness and eventually lead the person to a breaking point, a point that ignites personal transformation, when they scream Enough! And they mean it. When someone reaches their personal breaking point they can transform or they can give up. When author Roland Byrd reached his own breaking point, he decided to transform - to begin the lifelong journey of becoming the best version of himself and of helping others. During the first few years of his deep personal and spiritual transformation, Roland wrote many letters and emails to his wife, children, and his mentor. Later, while meditating, he realized the universal truths contained in these letters could help motivate, inspire, and show others learn how to live happier, healthier lives. Inspired by that realization, in 2011, Roland dove back into the letters, extracted the best parts, and then shared the collection as The Pi of Life: Essential Truths for Creating Happiness, Wholeness, & Success. The Pi of Life is an Entertaining and Thought Provoking Journey Forged in the Fires of Rebirth. It is wonderful for those on the path of personal transformation and enlightenment. It also makes a great gift. What people are saying about The Pi of Life: This book lifts me up and gives me hope. Ma Teresa Nunez Resendiz This book is a must have for those who seek their personal best daily and strive to be the joyful beings God created us to be. Violette L. Reid We all need to have daily reminders of our potential and life's possibilities for the amazing. This book is just that. Athena Harris The Pi of Life is full of Essential Truths that Gently Guide you to Happiness, Healing, Wholeness, and Success! Page after page of thoughts, insights, and stories await to motivate and inspire you—most of them are a page or less. So when you've got a few minutes to spare you can pick it up, read a page or two, and go on with your day feeling uplifted and inspired! The Pi of Life also Brims with Thoughts, Stories, and Insights, on topics from Spirituality and Healing, to Wholeness and Success. The Pi of Life Opens Your Mind, Body, and Spirit to Your Unlimited Potential. It Heals the Heart, Soothes the Soul, and Explores the Infinite Nature of Life. Come; Explore the Beauty of Your Creation! A Personal Note from the Author: When I first stepped on the path of personal growth, I never imagined I'd write books about the subject, let alone any book that would be considered self-help. But as I Rose like a Phoenix From the Ashes of my Life, my Mind, Body, and Spirit Transformed. I understood then that I must share my inspiration and knowledge to help others. Keeping the lessons I learned about personal transformation and spirituality to myself was simply unthinkable! With The Pi of Life I wanted to create an inspirational and motivational book that's fun and easy to read, a book that lifts your heart and spirits as you read it! Did I succeed? That's for you to decide. Please enjoy the journey! You Are The Master of Your Destiny! Roland P.S. As to the main title, The Pi of Life: I believe every human has limitless potential. Since Pi is an irrational number—and is therefore limitless—I thought it a fitting title.
