Choosing Simplicity: Real People Finding Peace and Fulfillment in a Complex World - - by Linda Breen Pierce. The true stories in this book are inspiring and practical. They show how modest changes in lifestyle can brought these everyday people deeper relationships, a sense of freedom, and peace of mind.

Successful Aging - - by John Wallis Rowe and Robert Louis Kahn; Pantheon Books, 1998. The result of 10 years of research and thousands of interviews, this book shatters a variety of myths about aging- Researchers found that genetics accounts for only 30% of the physical aspects of aging and 50% of the mental effects, and the older you get, the less important genetics becomes. Their research uncovered lifestyle choices that can dramatically affect the aging process- in spite of a person's genetic makeup.

The Power of Mindful Learning - - Ellen Langer takes a look at some of Education's most "sacred cows"- the importance of basic skills, of learning to delay gratification, of intelligence. She looks at what constitutes "critical thinking", at what it means to "pay attention", and suggests that our beliefs are holding us back, way back. She presents simple (but not simplistic) approaches that can allow people to learn in extraordinarily effective ways.

Somatics - For over ten years I had recurring back problems. Then I found this book just after it was published in 1988. Since then, thanks to what I learned from the book plus a daily, five minute tune-up, my back has ceased to be a problem. Every now and then (once or twice a year) my back will hurt- briefly. When it happens, thanks to Thomas Hanna, I know what to do to fix it fast, often within minutes or seconds. More important, I know how to examine my life to figure out what caused the problem.
