Reviews by Diane, East West’s Book Buyer

Seriously, Just Go to Sleep by Adam Mansbach Seriously, Just Go to Sleep
Adam Mansbach
Illustrated by Ricardo Cortes
Akashic Books, $15.95
The “grown-up” version of this book—with its four-letter
Order "Seriously, Just Go to Sleep" in hardcover at www.eastwest.com, or buy it today at East West Bookshop.expletive in the text—tickled the funny bones of frustrated parents who battle their kids over bedtime, shooting it to the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. Now moms and dads can actually read the story aloud to their dear ones, as the author has cleaned up the language in this G-rated spin. The only downside to this hilarious take on an all-too-familiar problem is the laughter it may provoke, making it impossible for any child to Just Go to Sleep.


Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain by Elaine Fox -- now available in hardcover at East West!Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain
How to Retrain Your Brain to Overcome Pessimism
and Achieve a More Positive Outlook
Elaine Fox
Basic Books, $26.99
Whether you’re a pessimist or an optimist, scientists discovered that it’s the circuitry in your brain that colors your perception of the world and drives your actions. A pessimist sees the downside of life, and is more inclined to be timid, take few risks and hold back from succeeding. An optimist sees the upside, and behaves in an adventurous, upbeat, sociable manner, believing in the best possible outcome. All of us are a combination of both, but we are dominated by either our rainy or sunny brain activity. Studies confirm that optimists have more positive experiences, while pessimists experience one bad thing after another. Whether we have a sunny or rainy disposition determines our state of well-being, our success in life and our impact on others.

Psychologist and neuroscientist Elaine Fox has long studied the science behind why we are the way we are, and in Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain, she explains it all, supported by the studies which confirm our “affective mindset.” She describes techniques that will change your brain—from cognitive behavior therapy to mindfulness meditation—and highlights the experiences of people who are either rainy or sunny, and how they respond to whatever the universe throws their way.

Kim Hermanson Ph.D.Friday, June 1
Getting Messy
7:30pm • Free but call to reserve a seat
Engaging in life is a messy process and this is particularly true for people who teach. "Messy" means we're human, we make mistakes, and we often have no idea how something will turn out. For those who teach, train, coach or facilitate, our best work comes from a willingness to step into unknown territory. Please join Kim Hermanson Ph.D., as she shares from her book Getting Messy: A Guide to Taking Risks and Opening the Imagination for Teachers, Trainers, Coaches and Mentors. Buy it HERE.
