A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

An amazing book that keeps you wonder, and you want to keep listening. When it was finished I felt like I lost my friends.

Healing is coming home to one's own authentic self - to the loving presence that is the ground of our being. But we often get trapped by the false refuges of fear-based habits and judgmental thoughts. Created for mental health professionals and illuminating to anyone interested in the core techniques, practices and insights of Buddhist psychology, this experience-focused audio-learning program helps us find our way back to natural presence, a place where peace and our deep love for life grows.

Audie Award, Humor, 2016. In Furiously Happy, number-one New York Times best-selling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.

When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

Such a great and inspirational book. It was great to be a part of it. While listening to it, I thought of my priorities and achievements in life, what can I give to my daughter, how to inspire her, and let her follow her dream.
