The BUS route to Happiness Excerpt :

This is a book about the advice I've read, mainly on the bus, on how to become a bit happier, calmer, kinder, and wiser, and how to get a slightly different perspective on life. I'm aiming this advice mostly at my children, and I've written this book with them in mind... but it’s helpful for anyone! I cover the wisdom of the Taoists, Zen Buddhists and Stoics and then some modern psychology, before I move on to some practical advice to increase your happiness based on the philosophies, books and articles that I’ve read. The BUS route is an abbreviation of: be here now, understanding empathy and compassion, and shrink desires. The book title is a happy coincidence, isn’t it? Throughout history we’ve had to deal with fear, anxiety, dissatisfaction, uncertainty, stress and lack of control. Our age is no different. I offer ways to cope, which includes: being more aware of life in the present moment, being more compassionate to yourself and others, looking at things more positively or realistically, looking at the big picture, and finding ways to manage your wants. This is a light-hearted look at how to be a little happier on the metaphorical bus journey of life, no matter what bumps in the road you’ll find.

101 Stories for Enhancing Happiness and Well Being Excerpt :

Research shows us clearly what works in counseling and psychotherapy. Often by the time clients enter a therapist’s office they have been told what to do—often soundly and sensibly—by well-meaning family, friends, and health professionals. The challenge for the effective therapist is how to communicate these same, sound messages in ways that the client is more likely to take on board, act on, and benefit from. 101 Stories for Enhancing Happiness and Well-Being harnesses the power of stories to translate the research from positive psychology into effective and practical therapeutic interventions. It communicates the core processes for enhancing happiness and well-being in ways that are easy to understand and incorporate into one’s therapeutic practice and clients’ lives.

Hair Hat Excerpt :

Featuring a preview of Carrie Snyder’s highly anticipated debut novel, Girl Runner. Anansi Digital brings you Carrie Snyder’s debut collection, Hair Hat, “a potent work of original imagination.” (Edmonton Journal) In these mysterious and wondrous stories, eleven disparate people — some of them related, some of them neighbours, glancing acquaintances, or even complete strangers — are transformed by a man with hair shaped like a hat. The lives depicted here are familiar, observed in all their ordinary detail. There is an eight-year-old girl sent to visit her aunt while her mother gives birth; an irrepressibly nosy landlady; a mother on a beach outing with her two young children; a grandmother taking her infant grandson for a stroll in the park. They are going about their everyday routine when they encounter a man — who speaks to them or not, passes them on the street, is somehow seen by them all. In that moment a truth about their lives, who they are and are not, who they might be, is realized. Different to each of them, he makes perfect sense to them all. By turns a figure of forgiveness, of threat, even of love, eventually this elusive figure himself begins to be revealed. With enormous subtlety and sly humour, Snyder unmasks rich and complex inner lives roiling just beneath the surface, lives of deep and unrequited yearning. Their singular encounters with the mysterious hair hat man begin to layer powerfully, one upon the other. Taken as a whole, Hair Hat enacts a deeply compelling human drama.
