HOW TO OVERCOME DISAPPOINTMENT IN WORK, LOVE, AND LIFE
By New World Library

Life is full of surprises that are not always the kind we would wish for: A relationship ends. An illness interrupts our life.  A career path doesn’t go as planned. A project we poured everything into doesn’t bring the results we expected.

We hope you'll enjoy this short interview in which Christine Hassler, author of Expectation Hangover, offers practical advice for learning from disappointment rather than just attempting to get rid of it, get over it, or wallowing in misery.

HORSE MEDICINE: A Conversation with Author and Photographer Tony Stromberg
By New World Library
After more than a decade as one of San Francisco’s top commercial photographers, Tony Stromberg followed an inner yearning for more space and stillness and moved to New Mexico to pursue his true passion in fine art photography of his favorite subject, the horse.

After his first two photography books, Spirit Horses and The Forgotten Horses, were published, he received innumerable emails from people praising his photos for how they capture the pure spirit, the essence of the horse. What really amazed him was that many who wrote were not horse people at all.

What is it about horses that draws people in so deeply? Why is it that horses hold meaning and symbolism across cultures around the world? Why do so many experience horses as not just beautiful creatures but wise and healing teachers? These are some of the questions that Stromberg set out to answer in his beautiful new book, Horse Medicine, which more than meets his goal of highlighting and honoring the mysterious ways horses and humans can “bring out the best, the highest, and the most powerful in one another.”

Eckhart Tolle Explains Why He Calls Pets “Guardians of Being”
By New World Library

We hope you’ll enjoy this short video in which Eckhart Tolle tells Oprah Winfrey why he calls pets “Guardians of Being,” which is also the title of the delightful book he cocreated with Patrick McDonnell, the illustrator behind the acclaimed comic strip MUTTS.

More than a collection of charming drawings with insightful captions, the marriage of Patrick McDonnell’s art and Eckhart Tolle’s words conveys a profound love of nature, of animals, of humans, of all life-forms. Guardians of Being celebrates and reminds us of not only the oneness of all life but also the wonder and joy to be found in the present moment, amid the beauty we sometimes forget to notice all around us.

Why Expectation Hangovers Happen: An Excerpt from EXPECTATION HANGOVER by Christine Hassler
By New World Library
Life is full of surprises that are not always the kind we would wish for: A relationship suddenly ends. An illness interrupts our life. A career path doesn’t go as planned. A project we poured everything into doesn’t bring the results we expected. Or we’ve checked everything off our life checklist and still don’t feel fulfilled.

While these kinds of disappointments are a normal part of the human experience, bestselling author Christine Hassler’s new book, Expectation Hangover: Overcoming Disappointment in Work, Love, and Life, promises that they can become the best thing that ever happened to us, once we learn to leverage disappointment to gain something from it rather than only suffering through it.

We hope you’ll enjoy this short excerpt from the book, in which Christine gets to the bottom of why Expectation Hangovers happen in the first place.
