    Author Wendy Lyons Sunshine - Tender Paws

    Author Wendy Lyons Sunshine - Tender Paws

    When Wendy Lyons Sunshine got her first puppy — abandoned behind a gas station, struggling with worms and anemia — she was in over her head. Puppy training guides failed to help her with the out-of-control bundle of teeth and claws rescue pup, and in desperation, she turned to her work helping worldclass child development experts. Could strategies for raising happy, well-adjusted kids transfer to a puppy? As it turns out, yes, they can! Full of illustrative cases and thoughtful insights to support dog welfare and inspire your own pet parenting journey, Sunshine’s new book, Tender Paws, explores parallels between human and canine research; delves into attachment theory, the effects of trauma, parenting styles, and sensory issues; and offers strategies that meet the needs of all dogs — often in unexpectedly simple ways. Far from a standard dog training manual, Tender Paws reveals why love alone isn’t always enough and how evidenceinformed parenting practices can help.

    Wendy Lyons Sunshine is an awardwinning writer and journalist who coauthored The Connected Child: Bring Hope and Healing to Your Adoptive Family, a bestseller that has been translated into multiple languages; and Raising the Challenging Child: How to Minimize Meltdowns, Reduce Conflict, and Increase Cooperation. She blogs about animal welfare and the human-dog bond for PsychologyToday.com and has contributed to The New York Times, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Fort Worth Weekly, and many other publications. She has trained in the L.E.G.S. applied ethology model of Family Dog Mediation and assisted at a local animal shelter. She and her husband live with a rescue dog on an overgrown acre where they all enjoy watching wildlife.

    Dr. Alphonsus Obayuwana - The Happiness Formula

    Dr. Alphonsus Obayuwana - The Happiness Formula

    A scientific, groundbreaking approach to happiness and personal fulfillment.


    In 1979, Dr. Alphonsus Obayuwana was awarded a national research grant and Smith-Kline Medical Perspective Fellowship to develop an instrument for measuring human hope, with the purpose of detecting hopelessness early enough in troubled human individuals so assistance could be offered in time to prevent suicide. The Hope Index Scale (HIS) that resulted from this grant became very popular with Fortune 500 companies and other institutions both in the US and in other countries. This led to the foundation of decades of research that ultimately resulted in this cutting-edge book, The Happiness Formula: Using Science to Understand Personal Satisfaction, Human Hope, and Subjective Well-Being.


    Unlike other books about happiness, which are too often filled with dos and don’ts, wishful thinking, and empty aphorisms, The Happiness Formula breaks new ground by introducing a universal unit of measure called the “Personal Happiness Index” or PHI. This makes it possible—for the first time ever—to calculate and assign numerical happiness scores to human individuals by plugging their unique hopes, hungers, assets, and aspirations into an equation.


    Despite its title, The Happiness Formula is much more than a mathematical equation for measuring happiness. It is a book about life; the relationship between human hope and happiness; how to find, measure and boost them; and, most interestingly, how to confirm the happiest country in the world and even help identify the happiest living human, or HLH. It challenges the World Happiness Report of 2023, debunks three major happiness myths, and then introduces the Triple-H Equation—the simple but profound formula about what makes life worth living. This is a book for happiness seekers and happiness advocates everywhere.

    Author Marni Jameson - Rightsize Today to Create Your Best Lift Tomorrow

    Author Marni Jameson - Rightsize Today to Create Your Best Lift Tomorrow

    A gentle guide for helping readers “over a certain age” discover their best life by finding the right-sized home in the best location.


    Moving is no fun. Neither is getting rid of stuff. And both jobs get harder as we get older. So, when those over a certain age — say, in the last third of life — are looking to downsize and move all at the same time, many will conclude, “I’ll just stay put, thank you very much.” It’s not just the acquired possessions holding them back, but also the intangibles. Their memories, their family history, their identities are all in jeopardy, they think. And yet, that reluctance to lighten up, let go, and move on is commonly all that stands between them and a better life.

    Rightsize Today to Create Your Best Life Tomorrow will help this group of root-bound home dwellers cross the bridge between stuck in the past and a lighter, better future. It will encourage them to embrace the fact that now, when they’re no longer tethered to a school system or to a job they need to be near, is their chance to live where they want to live. Every section contains checklists: some soul-searching (should you or shouldn’t you move?), some practical (what every kitchen must have), and some logistical (where’s your happy place?), to help readers on their journey.


    Included are enlightening profiles of those who proactively changed their housing in the last third of their life. Whether they moved to a smaller place, remodeled their existing home, or even moved to a larger home, which one third do; whether they moved to a new city, to a senior community, or to a new home in the same neighborhood, they all reimagined their lives, re-evaluated their belongings and made a move toward a better and possibly their best life yet.

    Heidi Beierle - Heidi Across America

    Heidi Beierle - Heidi Across America

    When the 2008 recession hit, thirty-three-year-old Heidi Beierle was single, underemployed, and ready for a change. But going back to school was not the solution she thought it would be, and her gloom deepened. Then, an email she received sparked a research idea, prompting her to bike from Eugene, Oregon, to Washington, D.C., to study bicycle tourism, a match with her personal interest to fix her failures by spending the summer pedaling. However, what she discovers on her journey across America isn’t what she expects.  

    The extreme weather, difficult drivers and challenging terrain test her more than she imagines, but the kindness of strangers helps her see that her heart can be both soft and strong. Heidi Beierle’s memoir, Heidi Across America, offers a journey to self-love, consideration for others, and respect for the spirit of place as pathways to find connection and home.  

    An encouraging story of learning self-love and compassion, Heidi Across America is a gritty story of how opening our hearts to others enables us to open our hearts to ourselves and love what we find there. 

    Heidi Beierle is an artist, writer, and adventurer who grew up in the wind and high plains of Wyoming. Her writing about her cross-country bicycle ride has been published in National Geographic Traveler, High Desert Journal, VoiceCatcher Journal, Journal of America’s Byways, and on the Adventure Cycling Association blog. She lives in Bellingham, Washington. Find out more at heidibeierle.com.
