The Creative Act: A Way of Being
The #1 New York Times bestseller.From the legendary music producer, a
master at helping people connect with the wellsprings of their creativity,
comes a beautifully crafted book many years in the making that offers that
same deep wisdom to all of us.”A gorgeous and inspiring work of art on
creation, creativity, the work of the artist. It will gladden the hearts of
writers and artists everywhere, and get them working again with a new sense
of meaning and direction. A stunning accomplishment.” —Anne Lamott“I set
out to write a book about what to do to make a great work of art. Instead,
it revealed itself to be a book on how to be.” —Rick RubinMany famed music
producers are known for a particular sound that has its day. Rick Rubin is
known for something else: creating a space where artists of all different
genres and traditions can home in on who they really are and what they
really offer. He has made a practice of helping people transcend their
self-imposed expectations in order to reconnect with a state of innocence
from which the surprising becomes inevitable. Over the years, as he has
thought deeply about where creativity comes from and where it doesn’t, he
has learned that being an artist isn’t about your specific output, it’s
about your relationship to the world. Creativity has a place in everyone’s
life, and everyone can make that place larger. In fact, there are few more
important responsibilities.The Creative Act is a beautiful and generous
course of study that illuminates the path of the artist as a road we all
can follow. It distills the wisdom gleaned from a lifetime’s work into a
luminous reading experience that puts the power to create moments—and
lifetimes—of exhilaration and transcendence within closer reach for all of
us. Read more

The Time Paradox: The New Psychology of Time That Will Change Your Life
Now in paperback, this breakthrough book on the new psychological science
of time by one of the most influential living psychologists—the New York
Times bestselling author of The Lucifer Effect—and his research partner
launched on the front page of USA TODAY “Lifestyle” with a Time Survey and
on CBS Morning Show. This is the first paradox of time: Your attitudes
toward time have a profound impact on your life and world, yet you seldom
recognize it. Our goal is to help you reclaim yesterday, enjoy today, and
master tomorrow with new ways of seeing and working with your past,
present, and future. Just as Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences
permanently altered our understanding of intelligence and Malcolm
Gladwell’s Blink gave us an appreciation for the adaptive unconscious,
Philip Zimbardo and John Boyd’s new book changes the way we think about and
experience time. It will give you new insights into how family conflicts
can be resolved by ways to enhance your sexuality and sensuality, and
mindsets for becoming more successful in business and happier in your life.
Based on the latest psychological research, The Time Paradox is both a “big
think” guide for living in the twenty-first century and one of those rare
self-help books that really does have the power to improve lives. Read more
The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a documentary from Ken Burns on PBS, this
New York Times bestseller is “an extraordinary achievement” (The New
Yorker)—a magnificent, profoundly humane “biography” of cancer—from its
first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic
battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a
radical new understanding of its essence.Physician, researcher, and
award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a
cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective, and a
biographer’s passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent
chronicle of a disease humans have lived with—and perished from—for more
than five thousand years. The story of cancer is a story of human
ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance, but also of hubris, paternalism,
and misperception. Mukherjee recounts centuries of discoveries, setbacks,
victories, and deaths, told through the eyes of his predecessors and peers,
training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary that, just
three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out “war
against cancer.” The book reads like a literary thriller with cancer as the
protagonist. Riveting, urgent, and surprising, The Emperor of All Maladies
provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of cancer treatments. It is
an illuminating book that provides hope and clarity to those seeking to
demystify cancer. Read more
Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention–and How to Think Deeply Again
In the United States, teenagers can focus on one task for only sixty-five seconds at a time, and office workers average only three minutes. Like so many of us, Johann Hari was finding that constantly switching from device to device and tab to tab was a diminishing and depressing way to live. He tried all sorts of self-help solutions—even abandoning his phone for three months—but nothing seemed to work. So Hari went on an epic journey across the world to interview the leading experts on human attention—and he discovered that everything we think we know about this crisis is wrong.
We think our inability to focus is a personal failure to exert enough willpower over our devices. The truth is even more disturbing: our focus has been stolen by powerful external forces that have left us uniquely vulnerable to corporations determined to raid our attention for profit. Hari found that there are twelve deep causes of this crisis, from the decline of mind-wandering to rising pollution, all of which have robbed some of our attention. In Stolen Focus, he introduces readers to Silicon Valley dissidents who learned to hack human attention, and veterinarians who diagnose dogs with ADHD. He explores a favela in Rio de Janeiro where everyone lost their attention in a particularly surreal way, and an office in New Zealand that discovered a remarkable technique to restore workers’ productivity.
Crucially, Hari learned how we can reclaim our focus—as individuals, and as a society—if we are determined to fight for it. Stolen Focus will transform the debate about attention and finally show us how to get it back.
Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams
With two appearances on CBS This Morning and Fresh Air’s most popular interview of 2017, Matthew Walker has made abundantly clear that sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. Compared to the other basic drives in life—eating, drinking, and reproducing—the purpose of sleep remains more elusive.
Within the brain, sleep enriches a diversity of functions, including our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions. It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite. Dreaming creates a virtual reality space in which the brain melds past and present knowledge, inspiring creativity.
In this “compelling and utterly convincing” (The Sunday Times) book, preeminent neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker provides a revolutionary exploration of sleep, examining how it affects every aspect of our physical and mental well-being. Charting the most cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs, and marshalling his decades of research and clinical practice, Walker explains how we can harness sleep to improve learning, mood and energy levels, regulate hormones, prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes, slow the effects of aging, and increase longevity. He also provides actionable steps towards getting a better night’s sleep every night.
Clear-eyed, fascinating, and accessible, Why We Sleep is a crucial and illuminating book. Written with the precision of Atul Gawande, Andrew Solomon, and Sherwin Nuland, it is “recommended for night-table reading in the most pragmatic sense” (The New York Times Book Review).
No Cure for Being Human: (And Other Truths I Need to Hear)
It’s hard to give up on the feeling that the life you really want is just out of reach. A beach body by summer. A trip to Disneyland around the corner. A promotion on the horizon. Everyone wants to believe that they are headed toward good, better, best. But what happens when the life you hoped for is put on hold indefinitely?
Kate Bowler believed that life was a series of unlimited choices, until she discovered, at age 35, that her body was wracked with cancer. In No Cure for Being Human, she searches for a way forward as she mines the wisdom (and absurdity) of today’s “best life now” advice industry, which insists on exhausting positivity and on trying to convince us that we can out-eat, out-learn, and out-perform our humanness. We are, she finds, as fragile as the day we were born.
With dry wit and unflinching honesty, Kate Bowler grapples with her diagnosis, her ambition, and her faith as she tries to come to terms with her limitations in a culture that says anything is possible. She finds that we need one another if we’re going to tell the truth: Life is beautiful and terrible, full of hope and despair and everything in between—and there’s no cure for being human.
Come As You Are: Revised and Updated: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life
For much of the 20th and 21st centuries, women’s sexuality was an uncharted territory in science, studied far less frequently—and far less seriously—than its male counterpart.
That is, until Emily Nagoski’s Come As You Are, which used groundbreaking science and research to prove that the most important factor in creating and sustaining a sex life filled with confidence and joy is not what the parts are or how they’re organized but how you feel about them. In the years since the book’s initial publication, countless women have learned through Nagoski’s accessible and informative guide that things like stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual wellbeing; they are central to it—and that even if you don’t always feel like it, you are already sexually whole by just being yourself. This revised and updated edition continues that mission with new information and advanced research, demystifying and decoding the science of sex so that everyone can create a better sex life and discover more pleasure than you ever thought possible.

Women, Food, and Hormones: A 4-Week Plan to Achieve Hormonal Balance, Lose Weight, and Feel Like Yourself Again
Most diet plans were created by men for men, but women’s bodies don’t work the same way. Popular programs can actually make it harder for women to lose weight, because they can wreak havoc on a woman’s complex and delicate hormonal system. New York Times best-selling author Dr. Sara Gottfried has spent her career demystifying hormones and helping patients improve their health more broadly with personalized medicine. In Women, Food, and Hormones, Dr. Gottfried presents a groundbreaking new plan that helps women balance their hormones so they can lose excess weight and feel better. Featuring hormonal detoxification combined with a ketogenic diet that is tailor-made for women, coupled with an intermittent fasting protocol and over 50 delicious and filling recipes, this book shares a fat-burning solution that gets results.
This Is Your Mind on Plants
Of all the things humans rely on plants for—sustenance, beauty, medicine, fragrance, flavor, fiber—surely the most curious is our use of them to change consciousness: to stimulate or calm, fiddle with or completely alter, the qualities of our mental experience. Take coffee and tea: People around the world rely on caffeine to sharpen their minds. But we do not usually think of caffeine as a drug, or our daily use as an addiction, because it is legal and socially acceptable. So, then, what is a “drug”? And why, for example, is making tea from the leaves of a tea plant acceptable, but making tea from a seed head of an opium poppy a federal crime?
In This Is Your Mind on Plants, Michael Pollan dives deep into three plant drugs—opium, caffeine, and mescaline—and throws the fundamental strangeness, and arbitrariness, of our thinking about them into sharp relief. Exploring and participating in the cultures that have grown up around these drugs while consuming (or, in the case of caffeine, trying not to consume) them, Pollan reckons with the powerful human attraction to psychoactive plants. Why do we go to such great lengths to seek these shifts in consciousness, and then why do we fence that universal desire with laws and customs and fraught feelings?
In this unique blend of history, science, and memoir, as well as participatory journalism, Pollan examines and experiences these plants from several very different angles and contexts, and shines a fresh light on a subject that is al
The Energy Paradox: What to Do When Your Get-Up-and-Go Has Got Up and Gone (The Plant Paradox, 6)
In his bestselling books, The Plant Paradox and The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven R. Gundry offered game-changing perspectives on our wellbeing. In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry expands upon his previous discussions of gut, microbiome, and mitochondrial health, linking immune malfunction to the mental and physical symptoms of fatigue—including exhaustion, brain fog, depression, anxiety, and low metabolism.
As Dr. Gundry explains, feeling tired, moody, and zapped of energy is not normal, no matter your workload or age. Fatigue is an SOS flare from the body, one that is intended to alert us that something is wrong. In his clinical work, Dr. Gundry has found that his patients who complain of feeling sick and tired all the time almost always have something in common: the inflammation markers of a leaky gut.
In The Energy Paradox, Dr. Gundry will offer readers the information and tools necessary to quiet the autoimmune battle raging within—a battle that depletes precious energy reserves, leaving you drained and prone to mood disorders and weight gain. With new guidelines on how to increase mitochondrial energy production and nourish the microbiome; 30 new Plant Paradox-approved recipes; and lists of energy-boosting foods to consume and energy-depleting foods to avoid, The Energy Paradox will help readers take back their lives, giving them the energy they need to feel, look, and be their best.
Counteract the Fat: Discover how Fiber and Antioxidants can Counteract the Physiological Effects of Junk Foods – a diet, nutrition and health book
Many of us love junk foods. What we don’t love are the medical conditions and weight gain that they are associated with. Research findings indicate that fiber and antioxidants can counteract the physiological effects of junk foods. This does not mean that we can eat as much fat as we want to. What it does mean is GREATER FREEDOM IN MAKING FOOD CHOICES! Counteract the Fat is a compilation of these research findings, providing cutting edge information on how fiber and antioxidants can help prevent medical conditions and weight gain associated with high-fat and other unhealthy great-tasting foods. The discussed Counteract the Fat concepts include:
☤ High-fat foods produce cholesterol-related acids that can clog arteries and raise cholesterol levels – opening the door to heart disease. Fiber counteracts that effect by nabbing cholesterol-related acids and removing them from our bodies, thus promoting healthy cholesterol levels and reducing our risk of heart disease.
☤ The excess calories in high-fat foods are absorbed by our bodies and stored as fat, which causes us to gain weight – opening the door to obesity. Fiber counteracts that effect by nabbing calories before they can be absorbed and stored as fat, thus making it harder for us to gain weight and reducing our risk of obesity.
☤ High-fat foods increase our exposure to “free radicals,” which attack and damage healthy human cells – opening the door to cancer, heart disease and many other conditions. Antioxidants counteract that effect by neutralizing free radicals, thus preventing and reversing cellular damage and reducing our risk of cancer, heart disease and many other conditions.
☤ The excess calories in high-fat foods can cause us to gain weight – opening the door to obesity. Antioxidants counteract that effect by giving our bodies the energy needed to burn fat more efficiently, thus making it harder for us to gain weight and reducing our risk of obesity.

The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing in this New York Times bestseller
Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.
Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind
Why do we keep getting the same jobs, taking on the same relationships, and finding ourselves in the same emotional traps?
Dr. Joe Dispenza not only teaches why people tend to repeat the same negative behaviors, he shows how readers can release themselves from these patterns of disappointment.
With the dynamic combination of science and accessible how-to, Dispenza teaches how to use the most important tool in ones body and life—the brain. Featured in the underground smash hit of 2004, “What the Bleep Do We Know!?,” Dispenza touched upon the brain’s ability to become addicted to negative emotions. Now, in his empowering book Evolve Your Brain he explains how new thinking and new beliefs can literally rewire one’s brain to change behavior, emotional reactions, and habit forming patterns.
Most people are unaware of how addicted they are to their emotions, and how the brain perpetuates those addictions automatically. In short, we become slaves to our emotional addictions without even realizing it. By observing our patterns of thought, and learning how to ‘re-wire the brain’ with new thought patterns, we can break the cycles that keep us trapped and open ourselves to new possibilities for growth, happiness and emotional satisfaction.
A radical approach to changing addictive patterns and bad habits.
