Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions Cover Image
$28.00
ISBN: 9781632868305
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Bloomsbury USA - January 23rd, 2018

An important book that explores the ways in which depression and anxiety may be due less to chemical imbalances and more to imbalances in our culture. Hari delves into the consequences of several features of modern lifestyles:  a lack of connection to nature, a lack of connection to community, a lack of meaningful work, and so on.  Well-researched, well-written, inspiring, and humane, this book is recommended reading for...pretty much everyone.

Heavy: An American Memoir Cover Image
$26.00
ISBN: 9781501125652
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Scribner - October 16th, 2018

I'm a big fan of Kiese Laymon's, ever since coming across an op-ed he wrote on his experience as a black professor at Vassar. He has a way with language and an honesty at once both self-deprecating AND hopeful. This book hit me hard and it hit me good. 


I also highly recommend his collection of essays How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America.
