<p><strong>The #1 <em>New York Times </em>Bestseller</strong></p><p><strong>"An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation."鈥擡lizabeth Gilbert</strong></p><p><em><strong>Nightline聽</strong></em><strong>anchor Dan Harris embarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable. Now revised with new material.</strong><strong></strong></p><p>After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.</p><p>Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain.聽<em>10% Happier</em>聽takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America鈥檚 spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.</p><p>Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir<br /></p>

<b><b>"A聽delight, full of heart and hijinks and humor . . . McDougall is a gifted storyteller who gets to the heart of the human-animal connection." --John Grogan, author of <i>Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog</i></b><br /><br /><b>From the best-selling author of <i>Born to Run</i>, a heartwarming story about training a rescue donkey to run one of the most challenging races in America, and, in the process, discovering the life-changing power of the human-animal connection.</b></b><br /><br />When Chris McDougall agreed to take in a donkey from an animal hoarder, he thought it would be no harder than the rest of the adjustments he and his family had made after moving from Philadelphia to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. But when he arrived, Sherman was in such bad shape he could barely move, and his hair was coming out in clumps. Chris decided to undertake a radical rehabilitation program designed not only to heal Sherman's body but to heal his mind as well. It turns out the best way to soothe a donkey is to give it a job, and so Chris decided to teach Sherman how to run. He'd heard about burro racing--a unique type of race where humans and donkeys run together in a call-back to mining days--and decided he and Sherman would enter the World Championship in Colorado.<br /><br />Easier said than done. In the course of Sherman's training, Chris would have to recruit several other runners, both human and equine, and call upon the wisdom of burro racers, goat farmers, Amish running club members, and a group of irrepressible female long-haul truckers. An entire community comes together to help save Sherman and, along the way, Chris shows us the joy of a life with animals.

<b>Take your mindfulness practice to a new healing level with guided meditations, journaling prompts, and restorative yoga poses.</b><br /><br />World-renowned restorative yoga teacher Jillian Pransky came to the practice of yoga to heal herself.

It wasn鈥檛 until a devastating personal loss and health crisis thrust her into suffocating anxiety that she stopped racing around. As she began to pause and examine her actions and emotions, she found herself able to unlock deeply seated tension in her mind and body. Since then, Pransky has been devoted to studying and teaching mindfulness practices, deep relaxation, and compassionate listening.<br /><br />In聽<i>Deep Listening,</i>聽Pransky presents her signature Calm Body, Clear Mind, Open Heart program鈥攁 10-step journey of self-exploration that she鈥檚 taught around the world.
