<p><b><i>35 concerts. 17,000 motorcycle miles. Three months. One lifetime.</b></i></p><br /><p>In May 2015, the veteran Canadian rock trio Rush embarked on their 40th anniversary tour, <i>R40</i>. For the band and their fans, <i>R40</i> was a celebration and, perhaps, a farewell. But for Neil Peart, each tour is more than just a string of concerts, it鈥檚 an opportunity to explore backroads near and far on his BMW motorcycle. So if this was to be the last tour and the last great adventure, he decided it would have to be the best one, onstage and off.</p><br /><p>This third volume in Peart鈥檚 illustrated travel series shares all-new tales that transport the reader across North America and through memories of 50 years of playing drums. From the scenic grandeur of the American West to a peaceful lake in Quebec鈥檚 Laurentian Mountains to the mean streets of Midtown Los Angeles, each story is shared in an intimate narrative voice that has won the hearts of many readers.</p><br /><p>Richly illustrated, thoughtful, and ever-engaging, <i>Far and Wide</i> is an elegant scrapbook of people and places, music and laughter, from a fascinating road 鈥?and a remarkable life.</p>

Our brains are doing our best to help us out, but they can be real assholes sometimes. Sometimes it seems like your own brain is out to get you鈥攎elting down in the middle of the grocery store, picking fights with your date, getting you addicted to something, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. You already told your brain firmly that it isn't good to do these things. But your brain has a mind of its own. That's where this book comes in. With humor, patience, and lots of swearing, Dr. Faith shows you the science behind what's going on in your skull and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life. If you're working to deal with old traumas, or if you just want to have a more measured and chill response to situations you face all the time, this book can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together and get your life and brain back.Here's an excerpt from the book:Knowing what鈥檚 going on up in your brain is HUGE. So much of how we interact with the world around us is a completely normal response when we take into account our past experiences and how our brains work. 鈥?Freaking the fuck out 鈥?Avoiding important shit we need to take care of 鈥?Feeling pissed off all the time 鈥?Being a dick to people we care about 鈥?Putting shit in our bodies that we know isn鈥檛 good for us 鈥?Doing shit we know is dumb or pointlessNone of these things are fucking helpful. But they all make sense.Your brain has adapted to the circumstances in your life and started doing things to protect you, bless it. It鈥檚 not TRYING to fuck you over (even though it totally is, at times).As we navigate the world, nasty shit happens. The brain stores info about the nasty shit to try to avoid it in the future. Sometimes these responses are helpful. Sometimes the responses become a bigger problem than the actual problem was. It鈥檚 called a trauma reaction.And even if you aren鈥檛 dealing with a specific trauma? Adaptive coping strategies, bad habits, and funky behaviors all wire in similar ways. And research is showing that these issues are actually some of the easier ones to treat in therapy 鈥?if we address what鈥檚 really going on, rather than just the symptoms.

<b> WINNER - 2019 Rubery Book Award BOOK OF THE YEAR & 16 other literary awards</b><br /><br /><b>An Engaging and Extraordinary Multigenerational Saga </b><br />A high position bestowed by China's empress dowager grants power and wealth to the Sun family. For Isabel, growing up in glamorous 1930s and '40s Shanghai, it is a life of utmost privilege. But while her scholar father and fashionable mother shelter her from civil war and Japanese occupation, they cannot shield the family forever.<br /><br />When Mao comes to power, eighteen-year-old Isabel journeys to Hong Kong, not realizing that she will make it her home--and that she will never see her father again. Meanwhile, the family she has left behind struggles to survive, only to have their world shattered by the Cultural Revolution.
