Psychology

Growing up, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at the age of twelve he wandered into a magic shop. There he met a woman who taught him that extraordinary things happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.

"I know I came into the world with what I call 'big dharma,'" writes Wayne Dyer in his memoir, "—with a blueprint to teach self-reliance and a positive loving approach to large numbers of people all over the globe." From his vantage point of some seventy years on earth, the renowned motivational speaker and bestselling author can see clearly now the patterns in his life. Through a series of scenes from his childhood to adult years he reveals the blueprint, the Divine presence that has steered him along, and the lessons that his sometimes painful journey has taught. In typical Dyer fashion, with a combination of earnestness and reflective wisdom, his memoir reads like a self-help manual. By reading it, you may be inspired to look back on your own life and uncover your purpose on earth.
