    "Patience is the ornament of the brave," Eknath Easwaran’s wise grandmother used to say. In all relationships, Easwaran says, patience is the mark of love. An experienced spiritual teacher, he gives powerful insights and advice for developing patience at home and at work, with his unique blend of humor and practicality. Stories offer quiet interludes throughout this little book. Anecdotes about animals, sports stars, and happy family outings make these short, varied readings as entertaining as they are instructive. Gentle reminiscences of India, tales from Easwaran’s Hindu heritage, and inspiration from the world’s saints lift the reader’s spirits and give courage. Just keep trying, Easwaran says, and you’ll find there’s no end to your patience — no end to the wisdom, love, and compassion in your heart. This book makes a thoughtful gift for anyone seeking a life that is kinder, more stable, and serene.

    How to be cool when you're afraid you've forgotten how . . .  
    Sure, you can try to stay younger by exercising, coloring your hair, and wearing stylish clothes—but how do you respond when someone asks, "Do you Twitter?" How Not to Act Old gives you simple ways to come back from over the hill and to act as young as you look. 
    Covering everything from old-people entertainment (cancel that dinner party!) to old-people communication (it's called a "voice mail," not a "message," and no one leaves or listens to them anyway), Pamela Redmond Satran decodes the behaviors, viewpoints, and cultural touchstones that separate you from the hip young person you wish you still were. This irreverent guide is essential for anyone who doesn't want to embarrass their kids—or themselves.

    Empty Abundance: Finding Meaning...

    Billboards, TV commercials, radio jingles-they all sell us the same story. "You can buy happiness! The more money you make, the fuller your life will be." So we buy the shiny new sports car, the sleek designer wardrobe, the gorgeous two-story house. We work hard and make a handsome profit from our labors . . . and yet we still feel empty inside. We've all been sold a bill of goods by the dominant consumer culture: that we can spend our way to happiness. In his new book, Tim McCarthy reveals why this simply isn't true. Like so many Americans, Tim spent years chasing the dream of material wealth, only to find that the promised rewards were empty and unsatisfying. In a voice that is instantly relatable, he recounts his personal journey of frozen assets, lost jobs, and liquidity events, speaking candidly about his own struggles with depression. Empty Abundance is the story of one man's path to true abundance-the kind that is not reliant on wealth or material gain. But the book is for anyone who has ever thought, "I have everything I ever wanted. Why am I unhappy?" The story will resonate deeply with anyone who, like Tim, has battled dysthymia or "anhedonia"-the inability to feel pleasure-and wondered how he or she could live differently. Today, Tim runs a private foundation, the Business of Good, funded by his fortune and several other successful for-profit enterprises. Drawing on a lifetime of lessons learned, Empty Abundance offers readers an avenue into deeper meaning, greater self-realization, and the enduring riches of service to others.
