For the millions of people who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s new book is a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology. From bestselling author, neuroscientist, and “new atheist” Sam Harris, Waking Up is for the increasingly large numbers of people who follow no religion, but who suspect that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history could not have all been epileptics, schizophrenics, or frauds. Throughout the book, Harris argues that there are important truths to be found in the experiences of such contemplatives—and, therefore, that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow. Waking Up is part seeker’s memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous sceptic—could write it.

The Eyes of an Autistic Yogi details one man's understanding of spirituality and life. Even so, spirituality is only one of a plethora of aspects of author Nathan Fox's life. Aside from his spiritual quest as a Yogi, Nathan is a musician, writer, and husband. He also has Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. Nathan first realized that his perception was skewed as a child, and he remained aware and even overwhelmed as he continued to develop. It was not until a moment of spiritual awakening on the side of the highway in Indianapolis, Indiana, that he finally transcended the limitations of his diagnosis; for the first time in his life, he saw the world for its beauty and simplicity. Sometime later, as the vision faded, Nathan knew he needed the experience again. He also knew he must share his insight with the world. Nathan reminds us of our own individuality. For now, we live in a strange world with even stranger people. We call this earth, and it is our home. Remembering our home, we do not seem that strange after all.
