Not so, says Konnikova: meditation gives you “the quiet distance you need for integra- tive, imaginative, obser vant, and mindful thought.” Just like Sherlock Holmes. Okay, he probably didn’t meditate every morn- ing, but he did per fect the quiet-distance thing. This book is fun—par ticularly all the quotations and references to Conan Doyle’s stories—and it gives good guid- ance about how to unfuzzy your thinking. RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS Then & Now By the editors at Conari Press The 20th - anniversary edition of this classic holds the same power as the original: readers can expect a boost to their overall happiness and also experi- ence a strong urge to go out and commit some kindness. As the original author, M.J. Ryan, suggests, reading these stories in the midst of a busy life still has the power to soften and warm the hear t—and help us “remember to enjoy the moments rather than just race through them.” IMPROV WISDOM Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up By Patricia Ryan Madson Say yes, star t anywhere, be average, pay at tention: these are a few of the lessons Patricia Ryan Madson has culled from a lifetime of prac ticing and teaching improv. And she suggests we try them on for size—right now. Improv is “not only about comedy, it’s a way of doing things,” she says in her introduction to this just- released audiobook. It’s relevant stuff for anyone—entrepreneurs, cooks, engineers, educators, caregivers, you name it—who is faced with the unending unpredictabilities and challenges of life. We’re always called upon to improvise. So here’s how. ● THE STILL POINT OF THE TURNING WORLD A Mother’s Story By Emily Rapp Most parents agree on one thing when it comes to raising children: it’s the letting go, in all its various forms, that demands the most of us. Emily Rapp’s experience of letting go was tragically accelerated: at just nine months old her son was diag- nosed with the rare and fatal degenerative disorder Tay-Sachs disease. In this elegant memoir, Rapp tells us how she and her hus- band faced the hear tbreak and managed to find the tools—calling on everything from literature to meditation—to live within the almost countable moments they had left with their first born.
