Unplug [sound recording (CD)] : a simple guide to meditation for busy skeptics and modern soul seekers / Suze Yalof Schwartz with Debra Goldstein.

  • 16 January 2018
cover imageA 10% Happier meets How to Meditate in this groundbreaking book for anyone who can't slow down but wants the secret to being happier and more effective from spiritual entrepreneur, former magazine editor, and founder and CEO of the popular LA-based meditation studio Suze Yalof Schwartz. Whether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or busy stay-at-home mom, the secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to hurry up and slow down, or unplug. As Anne Lamott said, "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." Contrary to what every Type A person thinks, studies show that you can actually be more effective by doing less, by unplugging from the chaos of your life for just minutes a day. This can be done effortlessly--even while waiting in line at Starbucks--through meditation. But Unplug is not the book for anyone who loves Buddhas and woo-woo talk. The first book that shows the overwhelmed and overworked Type A person how and why to unplug in order to recharge. Experts ranging from Dr. Oz to Harvard scientists to Vogue claim meditation can make us happier, healthier, more effective, and even smarter. And, Unplug is the only book that offers a no-nonsense approach that will appeal to anyone, even if--no, especially if--you believe you think too much, have no time, can't sit still, or that it's just not for you. In it, Suze debunks a lot of the misperceptions about meditation, including the notion that you need to sit still for long periods for it to work. She also shares the incredible benefits you'll experience, the proof and science to back up how meditation works, as well as tools and techniques to easily incorporate quick-hit meditations into daily life.

Forty Autumns [sound recording (CD)] : A family's story of courage and survival on both sides of the Berlin Wall / by Nina Willner.

  • 12 January 2018
cover imageIn this illuminating and deeply moving memoir, a former American military intelligence officer goes beyond traditional Cold War espionage tales to tell the true story of her family--of five women separated by the Iron Curtain for more than forty years, and their miraculous reunion after the fall of the Berlin Wall.Forty Autumns makes visceral the pain and longing of one family forced to live apart in a world divided by two. At twenty, Hanna escaped from East to West Germany. But the price of freedom--leaving behind her parents, eight siblings, and family home--was heartbreaking. Uprooted, Hanna eventually moved to America, where she settled down with her husband and had children of her own. Growing up near Washington, D.C., Hanna's daughter, Nina Willner became the first female Army Intelligence Officer to lead sensitive intelligence operations in East Berlin at the height of the Cold War. Though only a few miles separated American Nina and her German relatives--grandmother Oma, Aunt Heidi, and cousin, Cordula, a member of the East German Olympic training team--a bitter political war kept them apart. In Forty Autumns, Nina recounts her family's story--five ordinary lives buffeted by circumstances beyond their control. She takes us deep into the tumultuous and terrifying world of East Germany under Communist rule, revealing both the cruel reality her relatives endured and her own experiences as an intelligence officer, running secret operations behind the Berlin Wall that put her life at risk. A personal look at a tenuous era that divided a city and a nation, and continues to haunt us, Forty Autumns is an intimate and beautifully written story of courage, resilience, and love--of five women whose spirits could not be broken, and who fought to preserve what matters most: family.

Who were these other guys? What was their story? Just seeing them brought up questions for fans that sparked the imagination. In celebration of Star Wars' 40th anniversary, this book shines the spotlight on those unsung weirdos, heroes, and villains with a unique, new anthology. Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, brings together more than 40 authors for 40 stories. Each will be told from the perspective of background characters of A New Hope -- from X-wing pilots who helped Luke destroy the Death Star to the stormtroopers who never quite could find the droids they were looking for.
