For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s latest New York Times bestseller is a guide to meditation as a rational practice informed by neuroscience and psychology. From Sam Harris, neuroscientist and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books, Waking Up is for the twenty percent of Americans who follow no religion but who suspect that important truths can be found in the experiences of such figures as Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history. Throughout this book, Harris argues that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow, and that how we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the quality of our lives. Waking Up is part memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic—could write it.

'An extraordinary book . . . It will shake up your most fundamental beliefs about everyday experience, and it just might change your life.' Paul Bloom ___ For the millions of people who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris's new book is a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology.

Waking Up is part seeker's memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris-a scientist, philosopher, and famous sceptic-could write it. ___ 'A demanding, illusion-shattering book.'

Waking Up, by author Stephen Sheridan, narrates a refreshing tale of hope and love. One puppy wakes up on a journey with mental illness and stigma so heavy that he struggles to accept himself. What he finds does not make his illness vanish forever, but it does change his life for good. When our puppy opens up to his friends and shares his hurt, what does he ask of them? Empathy. / Acknowledge that I suffer pain, / stand by me through it, like it were rain. / Dont run away, and dont be afraid. / You are the love for which Ive prayed. / Being present is the greatest gift you can give. / Sharing our life is the reason we live. / A picture book created to introduce children to empathy, Waking Up calls out also to those grown-up kids who would like to be inspired again by the joy of being loved, of sharing the gift of anothers presence. Waking Up is a love-note reminder: you are not alone, and you are infinitely valuable.

As a result, he makes all sorts of discoveries about himself, his wife Esmeralda, and his supposedly happy family . . . One of internationally bestselling author Nigel Williams' best books to date, Waking Up Dead is both a screamingly funny cozy mystery and startlingly strange ghost story asking the question: What would you do if you could bear witness to your own demise?
