Hallucinations by Oliver Sacks

Oliver Sacks could write about something as banal as binder paper and make it compelling, but he doesn’t; he takes on the subjects that already intrigue us and then offers his physician’s insight—a mix of curiosity, keen observation, and empathy. His latest is about hallucinations. Sacks weaves together stories of his patients with stories of his own experience, and with elegance and detail, he describes what hallucinations tell us about the structure and composition of our brains. And more thought provokingly, he suggests how the hallucinated experience is essential to the human experience, how it is built into our myths, our folklore, and our faith.

The Pocket Thich Nhat Hanh

We are big fans of the tiny books of wisdom from Shambhala Publishers—yes, they are small enough to fit in a pocket, but they overflow with beautiful words and inspirational teachings. The latest addition to the series is a collection of writing from Thich Nhat Hanh—Buddhist monk, author, poet, and scholar—who was nominated by Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize. His joyful spirit comes shining through in this book, an overview of his teachings.

Living Beautifully by Pema Chödrön

In her new book, Buddhist writer Pema Chödrön returns to the concept of “groundlessness”—the feeling of orienting and peace that can come when you truly let go. The teachings she presents here—known as the Three Commitments—provide a wealth of wisdom for learning to step into the unknown: to be completely, fearlessly present even in the hardest times and the most difficult situations. When we learn to let go of our fear, we can expand fully into any moment, and in that expansion, live more fully and answer each situation with compassion and opening.

Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan

This captivating account of one young woman’s descent into madness is part medical mystery, part portrayal of the strength and dedication of an usually divided family, and overall a powerful example of the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit. Written with sharp introspection, humility, and humor, this mesmerizing memoir kept me reading late into the night and hasn’t left my mind since.

True Food by Andrew Weil, MD

Nourishing the body, mind, and spirit has always been Dr. Andrew Weil’s focus, so when he and Sam Fox opened their restaurant, True Food Kitchen, their mission was twofold: Every dish served must not only be delicious, it must also promote the diner’s well-being. Happily, their intentions shine through in this companion cookbook. “Andrew Weil knows how to bring people into a new relationship to food: If you eat simply and deliciously with family and friends, using local, organic ingredients in season, the natural outcome will be good health for the rest of your life.” —Alice Waters
