BLINK-The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell Ok, you say, “just how am I suppose to do that?!” And that’s the answer: you already do! At a book signing in La Jolla, CA, I was intrigued by Gladwell’s research and examples. Education, experience, and environmental context are blended to create an intuitive response that is faster than our conscious thinking. What is equally telling is the danger of failing to ask if that response is accurate. Read the book. Easy to read, fascinating, and thought-provoking. You might not even know the latter occurred!

Choose Peace & Happiness-A 52-Week Guide
by Susyn Reeve This insightful book offers 52 weeks worth of ideas about small things that can help us reclaim peace and happiness in our lives. She melds her own “juice” with wisdom from Robert Fritz, author of the classic book, Path of Least Resistance.
