After service in Vietnam, as a surgeon for the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in 1968-69, at the height of the war, Dr. Gordon Livingston returned to the U.S. and began work as a psychiatrist. In that capacity, he has listened to people talk about their lives-what works, what doesn't, and the limitless ways (many of them self-inflicted) that people find to be unhappy. He is also a parent twice bereaved; in one thirteen-month period, he lost his eldest son to suicide, his youngest to leukemia. Out of a lifetime of experience, Gordon Livingston has extracted thirty bedrock truths: We are what we do. Any relationship is under the control of the person who cares the least. The perfect is the enemy of the good. Only bad things happen quickly. Forgiveness is a form of letting go, but they are not the same thing. The statute of limitations has expired on most of our childhood traumas. Livingston illuminates these and twenty-four others in a series of carefully hewn, perfectly calibrated essays, many of which focus on our closest relationships and the things that we do to impede or, less frequently, enhance them. Again and again, these essays underscore that “we are what we do,” and that while there may be no escaping who we are, we have the capacity to face loss, misfortune, and regret and to move beyond them-that it is not too late. Full of things we may know but have not articulated to ourselves, Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart offers solace, guidance, and hope to everyone ready to become the person they'd most like to be.

Dr Gordon Livingston's national bestseller, TOO SOON OLD, TOO LATE SMART, has drawn tens of thousands of readers who have embraced its thirty bedrock truths about life and how best to live it. Now, in AND NEVER STOP DANCING, Dr Livingston - a Vietnam War veteran, psychiatrist, and parent twice bereaved - offers thirty more true things we need to know now. Among the fresh truths Dr Livingston identifies and explores are: 'Paradox governs our lives. Forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves. Marriage ruins a lot of good relationships. We are defined by what we fear. We all live downstream. One of life's most difficult tasks is to see ourselves as others see us. As we grow old, the beauty steals inward. Most people die with the music still inside of them.' Once again, here are Dr Livingston's sterling qualities: a deep understanding of the emotional tumult that courses through our lives - our hidden hypocrisies, desires, and evasions an unerring sense of what is important (he does not waste a single moment writing about unimportant things) and his own ability to persevere 'to hope ' in a world he knows to be capable of inflicting unjustifiable and lifelong suffering. These qualities, plus his perfectly pitched sense of humour, add up to another extraordinary book, one which, like its predecessor, offers a gentle, generous, and unusual alternative to the trial-and-error learning that makes wisdom such an expensive commodity.

Arguably our brain's greatest sense is the ability to understand the minds of others - our sixth sense. In Mindwise, renowned psychologist Nicholas Epley shows that this incredible capacity for inferring what others are thinking and feeling is, however sophisticated, still prone to critical errors. We often misread social situations, misjudge others' characters, or guess the wrong motives for their actions. Drawing on the latest in psychological research, Epley suggests that only by learning more about our sixth sense will we have the humility to overcome these errors and understand others as they actually are instead of as we imagine them to be.
