Kac Young never imagined that, after a lifetime as a ‘cat person,’ she would fall in love with, and adopt, a tiny rescue dog called Talulah. Kac loved other people’s dogs, but “I never had time, and they smell funny, lick off your makeup, and pee on your new shoes.” All that changed when she met Talulah, and just had to take her back to her home in the Californian forest, that she shared with her partner and six cats. Soon after Talulah took up residence, Truffle was also adopted by Kac, and this book is the fascinating story of Kac’s progression from slightly shell-shocked beginner to savvy, adoring dog guardian. Right from the start, Kac consulted behaviourist Lisa Tenzin-Dolma on all things dog-related, and Lisa’s observations and wise guidance on a wide range of subjects follow Kac’s accounts, providing vital insight about the best way to go about building a loving, trusting relationship between you and your dog. Entertaining and informative, this book will appeal to new and seasoned dog guardians alike. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

We must take risks if we are to grow personally and professionally. Risks are a part of a fully-lived life. But in the commotion of today's fast-paced, technology-driven world, people have become disconnected from the wise counsel of their inner resources, hampering their ability to make meaningful choices. Consequently, risks are increasingly being taken in an impulsive, haphazard, and often reckless way. In Right Risk, Bill Treasurer draws on the experiences and insights of successful risk-takers (including his own experiences as a daredevil high diver) to detail ten principles that readers can use to take risks with greater intelligence and confidence. Right Risk is about taking more deliberate and intentional risks in an increasingly complex world. It aims to answer such questions as: How do I know which risks to take and which to avoid? How do I balance the need to take more risks with the need to preserve my safety? How do I muster up the courage to take risks when it is so much easier not to? How do I confront all those people who keep telling me what a mistake it would be to take the risk? And, most importantly, How do I make risk-taking less of an anxiety-provoking experience? Right Risk will help readers take risks with greater discipline, focus, and maturity-to confidently face life's challenges and take advantage of life's opportunities.

The Buddhist practice of mindfulness caught on in the west when we began to understand the everyday, personal benefits it brought us. Now, in this extraordinary book, the highly acclaimed thought leader and longtime English translator of His Holiness the Dalai Lama shows us that compassion can bring us even more. Based on the landmark course in compassion training Jinpa helped create at Stanford Medical School, A Fearless Heart shows us that we actually fear compassion. We worry that if we are too compassionate with others we will be taken advantage of, and if we are too compassionate with ourselves we will turn into slackers. Using science, insights from both classical Buddhist and western psychology, and stories both from others and from his own extraordinary life, Jinpa shows us how to train our compassion muscle to relieve stress, fight depression, improve our health, achieve our goals, and change our world. Practical, spiritual, and immediately relevant, A Fearless Heart will speak to readers of The Art of Happiness and Wherever You Go, There You Are.
