Spring has sprung, and so have some new and exciting titles in our window! This month, we're showcasing a variety of subjects for everyone.
Interested in neuroscience or philosophy? Check out Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon's Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart by James Doty, as he explores the power of compassion and the influence of the heart over the mind. Or perhaps The Stone Reader: Modern Philosophy in 133 Arguments would be more your speed, being a collection of essays and arguments on modern philosophy. The applications of these fields are endless; for something that could really change your outlook, read Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence by Rick Hanson. It's all about the flexibility of our neuropathways, and the changes we can make for the better with a bit of concious effort.
Need a quick primer? Look up The Philosophy Book , or The Psychology Book which will take you through the timelines of their respective studies, simply explaining the deep subject matter piece by piece.
How about women's studies? We have a number of titles, including the classic The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf, or the recently released, critically acclaimed by Peggy Orenstein, which explores the minefield that is the sexual landscape for young adult women. More into sex studies? Try A Murder Over a Girl: Justice, Gender, Junior High by Kevin Corbett. This recently released title tells the heartbreaking story of a young trans student who was murdered by her classmate in junior high. Told from the perspective of a psychologist, this dark read is deeply moving, facilitating the ongoing conversations about tolerance and acceptance.
Maybe you just need something to relax with of an evening. Give one of our many adult colouring books a try. They're great to help you unwind after a long day at work. For example, Legendary Landscapes provides a number of beautiful templates of the Canadian wilderness, from the mountains, to the plains, and sea to shining sea.
