This captivating story of a brave young tiger who refuses to give up on her dreams is a celebration of the power of nature and the beauty of innocence, and is a testament to the courage it takes to be true to ourselves.

I Am Your Mirror
Author: Matteo Rizzato, Davide Donelli
Publisher: Blossoming Books
Mirror neurons are one of the most extraordinary discoveries of contemporary neuroscience. They explain, on a scientific level, why we understand other people's behavior to a deep degree. They were discovered by Professor Giacomo Rizzolatti, who wrote the preface to this book. Our aim here is to provide basic knowledge of the key concepts of this discovery through the use of clear language and many illustrations. The book also covers the effects of mirror neurons in our daily lives and in the mechanisms that regulate social interactions, so we can learn how to handle them in a more effective way.
Author: Phil Stutz, Barry Michels
Publisher: Random House Canada
A groundbreaking book about personal growth that presents a uniquely effective set of four tools that bring about dynamic change in the present and impart a greater understanding of the depth and complexity of the human condition over the longterm. The Tools addresses the most common complaint patients have about psychotherapy: the interminable wait for change to begin. Barry Michels, an LA-based therapist, was frustrated by his inability to bring his patients faster relief from the issues that plagued them. He found a mentor in Phil Stutz, a psychiatrist who years before devised a methodology that arose from a similar disenchantment. The traditional therapeutic model sets its sights on the past, but Stutz and Michels employ an arsenal of tools--exercises that access the power of the unconscious and effectively meet the most persistent problems people face--and the results are electrifying. Stutz and Michels are much sought-after--a recent profile in The New Yorker touted them as an "open secret" in Hollywood--and treat a high-powered and creative clientele. Their first work, The Tools transcends the typical self-help genre because of its paradigm-changing material, the credibility of its authors, and the instant appeal and empowerment of its message.
