Quiet by Susan Cain
Already seven years on the New York Times bestseller list, Quiet shares “the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking.”
According to Whole Living, “In this well-written, unusually thoughtful book, Cain encourages solitude seekers to see themselves anew; not as wallflowers but as powerful forces to be reckoned with.”
Andrew Keen, CNN.com says, “A reminder of the importance of introspection and solitude in our Facebook, Google+, and Twitter age of incessant updates, retweets, likes and pokes…Excellent.” You can find the book here.
Surfing Your Inner Sea by Raphael Cushnir
From the author of How Now, Raphael Cushnir writes Surfing Your Inner Sea, offering “essential lessons for lasting serenity.” Cushnir is also the author of seven books, is a popular counselor and coach, and is a faculty member of the Esalen Institute and the Kripalu Center.
According to the book, “Life today is more harried than ever before. Stopping to catch our breath only leaves us further behind. As tempting as it is to run away from it all, for most of us, that’s just not possible.”
In addition, “What we need is not to escape, but find a way to find serenity amid the storm.” Furthermore, the book “offers a vision of serenity as thrilling as it is practical. Cushnir teaches us to find flow when we’re stuck, calm when we’re anxious, and hope when we’ve all but given up.” You can find the book here.
The More Of Less by Joshua Becker
The creator of BecomingMinimalist.com, Joshua Becker teaches us to “finding the life you want under everything you own.” According to The More Of Less, “Most of us own too much stuff. We feel the burden of our own clutter. We tire of cleaning and managing and organizing. The toy room is messy, drawers won’t close, closets are overfilled, and we can’t fit our cars in the garage. Evidence of clutter is all around us.”
