Staff Pick

If you can't go on a walk without your cell phone; if being away from your desk causes serious e-mail anxiety; if you can't go more than a few hours without checking your messages, then you might need this book. Despite the marvels of technology, being constantly connected with others means being less connected with yourself. We are often overwhelmed with so much data about how to live life that we forget we're living it right now. This is a book about how to remember and internalize that. The information age has made the "monkey mind" an 800 lb. gorilla, and Henepola Gunaratana offers the key to its cage. It is a book to help you cut the ties pulling you in all directions, so you can just be where your are and remember that you're alive, something that's oddly easy to forget.
