The New York Times bestselling novel from Garth Stein–a heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of a dog’s efforts to hold together his family in the face of a divisive custody battle. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life's ordeals. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed professionally; the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny's wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoë, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoë at his side. Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime, when he is sure he will return as a man.

Performance Thinking

Mental Skills for the Competitive World...and for Life!

“Performance Thinking – Mental Skills for the Competitive World...and for Life!”, by Dr. Jacques Dallaire of Performance Prime, addresses two basic but profoundly important questions that are relevant to every human being on the planet: ‘How do I mentally sabotage my own performance?’ and ‘How can I control my thinking in order to optimize my performance?’ This interactive book provides a simple, powerful framework of mental “Rules” that the reader can use to understand clearly how the way that they think – directly and indirectly – influences how they perform. The disruptive influence of distractions is one of the most common complaints that people identify when it comes to the self-sabotage of their own performance. Distractions (both internal, in their own mind and external, from the environment around them), cause individuals to struggle and have difficulty remaining correctly focused on the task in front of them. These distractions negatively impact performance because focus of attention is diverted away from the task to the source of their worry. Dr. Dallaire makes the case that, at its most basic level, the secret to the mental game ultimately is the ability to control focus of attention so that it is directed to the correct thing at the correct time. “Performance Thinking” clearly outlines the nature of this problem and presents practical and effective solutions to address this thorny issue. Fear of failure is also often cited by individuals as an overriding, emotional response that consumes their thinking and drives their behavior. This is especially true in challenging or difficult situations. In environments where results are seen as critical and where the task being targeted is challenging, fear of not being successful or concern over what others might think of them if they do fail, often influences performance in a negative way. Internal negative thoughts increase anxiety and heightened anxiety levels ultimately lead to a fundamentally incorrect focus that corrupts performance and negatively influences mental and physical health. “Performance Thinking” sheds light on why? and how? this decay in thinking occurs and exactly how self-doubt leads to inferior performance. It also establishes a practical framework of thinking that can reshape your dominant thought and positively influence your ability to perform. The book discusses the dangers associated with an overriding focus on results, explains how we mentally process information at a fundamental level, describes the direct impact that imagery has on performance, and explores in detail what the ‘skill’ of focus or concentration is...and how to control it. The A.C.T. Model© process that Dr. Dallaire shares in the final section of the book is a methodology that has been proven over decades to help thousands of top performers from many different walks of life achieve – and even exceed – their performance goals. The process, while simple in both design and execution, is a powerful performance modeling tool that can help readers control their thoughts in challenging situations and as a result, optimize their performance. It describes a systematic process of self-analysis and self-correction that engages the unconscious mind in a way that fosters the development of the mental “Zone” that is associated with optimal performance. The mindset that appears to be characteristic of champions can be modeled and learned, and “Performance Thinking” provides a road map to the development of this kind of thinking. It is truely a mental skills ‘toolkit’ to optimize personal performance.

Faster than a speeding spitball, more powerful than a playground bully, able to breeze through homework and finish nightly chores in a single bound, it’s Master of Mindfulness—here to conquer stress, worry, and any trouble that comes your way! Do you ever feel angry, disappointed, or stressed out about family problems, school, bullies, or trouble with friends? If so, mindfulness can help. Master of Mindfulness is a unique and empowering book written for kids by kids, with cool illustrations and tips that show you how to be confident, get focused, stay calm, and tap into your own inner strength so that you can be your own superhero—no matter what life throws your way! Childhood is supposed to be a carefree time, but the truth is that all kids have stress—especially when dealing with difficulties at school, at home, or with friends. Sometimes things happen in life that are hard, and you can’t stop thinking about them or you react too fast. You might be mad, sad, irritated, embarrassed, anxious, jealous, or even disappointed with yourself when things don’t go the way you would’ve hoped. And when you’re really upset, it’s hard to make good decisions—you may end up doing something that you regret later or that gets you into trouble. You could probably use some help—and fast!—but where can you turn? This book will give you the skills you need to bring up your own superpowers by showing you how mindfulness, like stopping to take a few deep, mindful breaths, can help you calm down and deal with things differently. Written by Laurie Grossman, cofounder of Mindful Schools and director of program development at Inner Explorer, and Mr. Musumeci’s fifth grade class at Reach Academy in Oakland, California, Master of Mindfulness presents helpful practices—mindful activities proven to make it easier to pay attention, accept yourself and others, manage your anger, and even get to sleep at night. The book features cool, mixed media illustrations with real kids’ drawings and stories about how mindfulness can help in different stressful situations. It even covers some of the brain science behind why mindfulness helps kids to feel better, stay in the present moment, be kind, and make good decisions. The book includes easy and fun practices, like mindful breathing, noticing your feelings, paying attention to your body, and mindful eating, as well as links to engaging audio recordings produced by Mr. Musumeci’s students. And once you become a master of mindfulness, you can help others by sharing your superpower and teaching them how to do it, too—your parents, your teachers, and your friends. When things go wrong, or when you have scary thoughts or strong feelings, you may need help to sort it all out, no matter how old you are. Learning and practicing mindfulness can make it easier to deal with the issues you face every day by showing you how to tap into your own inner strength in times of stress. So, why not use mindfulness and start being your own superhero today?
