Barking Up the Wrong Tree: The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong

Legendary viral blogger Eric Barker, whose blog has 300,000 followers, has finally written an epic book in his usual highly entertaining and well-researched style. Eric takes traditional views of success (think “winners never quit and quitters never win” and “good guys finish last”) and turns them on their head.

Funny, witty, and highly informative, this book gives you concrete how-to’s for reaching your maximum potential while also living a happy and fulfilled life. Eric interviews extraordinary leaders and champions as well as kung fu con artists and Navy SEALS. Put your seatbelt on and get ready to be inspired! (Available May 16, 2017).

Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection

Acclaimed meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg has spent decades teaching meditation across the United States and the world. In particular, she introduced the practice of loving-kindness meditation to the West, revolutionizing the way we relate to one another and ourselves. Research that my colleagues and I conducted on Sharon Salzberg’s Loving Kindness Meditation actually showed that even seven minutes of practice (try it yourself here) makes you feel happier and more connected to others, and that these changes are also reflected in the brain.

Now Sharon has finally written an epic book on love. It is a moving account of how the quality of our relationship with ourselves—self-love—can deeply affect our relationships with all others. A must-read for anyone who has ever felt that they are hard on themselves and would like to open their hearts even wider—encompassing not just others but also themselves. (And if you love this topic, don’t forget the classic book on self-compassion research, a wonderful companion to Sharon’s work, Self-Compassion by Dr. Kristin Neff.)

We’ve all been in a situation where either we ourselves have been going through a hard time or someone else has—and yet we don’t know what to do, and neither do those around us
