    You Don’t Have to Feel This Way   “You are not alone, and you’re not saddled with anxiety—or the medications to treat it—forever. I’m going to outline a clear plan and give you clear steps to help you face your anxiety from every angle, in synergy, to truly get to the calm and healing you need and deserve. These tools work.” –from the introduction   Naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist Peter Bongiorno has been researching natural approaches to anxiety for over 20 years and treating patients for a dozen. (His interest was professional, of course, but also partly personal; he had his own history with debilitating anxiety.) Here he offers his holistic approach to healing anxiety and avoiding relapse, with a toolkit that includes foods and plant-based medicines, plus anxiety-reducing yoga poses, massage techniques, and acupressure points you can try on your own for lasting relief.   Bongiorno also tackles how to safely wean from anti-anxiety medication and how to supplement conventional medications with herbs and other remedies to increase their efficacy and reduce side effects.   If you are one of the 40 million Americans with panic attacks, phobias, or other anxiety-related issues limiting your life, or are in close relationship with someone who is, this book will be a lifeline.

    The Faith of a Writer

    Joyce Carol Oates

    A tribute to the brilliant craftsmanship of one of our most distinguished writers, providing valuable insight into her inspiration and her method 
     Joyce Carol Oates is widely regarded as one of America's greatest contemporary literary figures. Having written in a number of genres -- prose, poetry, personal and critical essays, as well as plays -- she is an artist ideally suited to answer essential questions about what makes a story striking, a novel come alive, a writer an artist as well as a craftsman. 
     In The Faith of a Writer, Oates discusses the subjects most important to the narrative craft, touching on topics such as inspiration, memory, self-criticism, and "the unique power of the unconscious." On a more personal note, she speaks of childhood inspirations, offers advice to young writers, and discusses the wildly varying states of mind of a writer at work. Oates also pays homage to those she calls her "significant predecessors" and discusses the importance of reading in the life of a writer.  
     Oates claims, "Inspiration and energy and even genius are rarely enough to make 'art': for prose fiction is also a craft, and craft must be learned, whether by accident or design." In fourteen succinct chapters, The Faith of a Writer provides valuable lessons on how language, ideas, and experience are assembled to create art.
