IL NUOVO LIBRO DELL’AUTRICE DEL MAGICO POTERE DEL RIORDINO, CHE HA VENDUTO OLTRE 3 MILIONI DI COPIE NEL MONDO LA MAGIA DELL’ORDINE PER TUTTI: IL METODO GIAPPONESE CHE RIVELA IL LATO LUMINOSO DELLE COSE Il mondo lo attendeva, Marie Kondo lo ha scritto. Il libro che svela i principi, i consigli, le intuizioni per mettere ordine nella nostra casa e nella nostra vita: 96 lezioni pratiche accompagnate da incantevoli illustrazioni, per convincere anche i più disordinati ad applicare il metodo Konmari. «Il criterio per decidere cosa tenere o cosa buttare sta nella capacità dell’oggetto di irradiare felicità. Al momento di scegliere dovete toccarlo, e intendo proprio tenerlo con fermezza con entrambe le mani, stabilendo un contatto con esso. Prestate grande attenzione alle reazioni del vostro corpo in questo istante. Quando qualcosa vi trasmette felicità, dovreste avvertire una sorta di brivido, come se le cellule del vostro corpo si destassero lentamente. Quando tenete in mano qualcosa che non vi ispira gioia, invece, vi sembrerà che il corpo diventi più pesante.» Che cosa resterà, infine, dopo che Marie Kondo ci avrà guidato nel Grande Riordino? Un rafforzamento del legame con le cose che ci circondano, un nuovo rapporto, più intenso e fecondo, con gli oggetti che abbiamo scelto. E non saranno mutati solo i sentimenti nei confronti del mondo materiale. Rallenteremo. Assaporeremo il cambiamento delle stagioni. Prendendoci cura delle nostre cose, scopriremo come prenderci cura di noi stessi e dei nostri affetti. «Avete bisogno del Grande Riordino, quello che cambia la vita e risolve il problema alla radice. Avete bisogno di Marie Kondo» La Stampa «Il riordino produce effetti visibili e soprattutto non mente» D di Repubblica «Marie Kondo è una delle personalità più influenti al mondo» Time «Il manifesto dell’ordine scritto da una fata zen che è in grado di risvegliare l’anima delle cose» The New York Times

The latest Scandinavian publishing phenomenon is not a Stieg Larsson like thriller; it's a book about chopping, stacking, and burning wood that has sold more than 200,000 copies in Norway and Sweden and has been a fixture on the bestseller lists there for more than a year. Norwegian Wood provides useful advice on the rustic hows and whys of taking care of your heating needs, but it's also a thoughtful attempt to understand man's age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires. An intriguing window into the exoticism of Scandinavian culture, the book also features enough inherently interesting facts and anecdotes and inspired prose to make it universally appealing. The U.S. edition is a fully updated version of the Norwegian original, and includes an appendix of U.S.-based resources and contacts.

The Sun My Heart
Author: Thich Nhat Hanh
Publisher: Parallax Press
The Sun My Heart is one of Thich Nhat Hanh’s most beloved books. It was written as a sequel to Miracle of Mindfulness and contains the journey, on the path of everyday practice, from mindfulness to insight in an informational, conversational manner. Using the objects and events of everyday life in his hermitage in Plum Village—the gradual settling of the pulp in a glass of apple juice or the wind blowing into the room and scattering papers about—Thich Nhat Hanh draws from Buddhist psychology, epistemology, and the world of contemporary literature and science to guide the reader along the path of clarity and understanding. This book can be read straight through, but is also designed to be opened randomly and experienced chapter by chapter, paragraph by paragraph. Thich Nhat Hanh suggests in the Introduction that The Sun My Heart "prefers to be a friend rather than a book. You can take it with you on the bus or subway as you do your coat or your scarf. It can give you small moments of joy at any time."
