Like many of us, Bob Miglani felt overwhelmed and anxious. He worried constantly about his job, his finances, and his family. It was a chance invitation to India, the land of his birth, that finally freed him. India, Miglani writes, is “the capital of chaos”: over a billion people living on one-third the space of the United States. And it was there that he learned to let go. The secret is to stop trying to control the chaos and focus on what you can control—your own actions, words, and thoughts. Move forward, make mistakes, trust your intuition, find your purpose. In this inspiring book, Miglani shares the experiences and encounters that helped him finally get it. What happens when you find yourself in an Indian village with no money and a plane to catch? How could an educated urban woman agree to a marriage after two dates? What keeps a rural health worker motivated despite the enormous need and such limited ability to help? What does trying to catch an insanely overcrowded bus teach you about perfection? Embracing the chaos, Miglani found, “leads us down paths we never would have walked on...It brings out strengths we never knew existed inside of us.”

India has terrible infrastructure, is one of the most crowded places on earth, and struggles with high rates of poverty. Bob Miglani calls it the world capital of chaos. Yet India's 2012 Happy Planet Index rating (32) is 70 places higher than that of the U.S. (105). What do Indians know that we don't? Pfizer exec Bob Miglani returned to India, his birthplace, stressed out and worried about his finances, his family and his job; while driving in an Indian taxi he realized he was worrying about the wrong things. In Embrace the Chaos, he describes the simple lessons that allow us to thrive, be happy, and productive in life even when the world around us is going crazy. First of all, stop trying to plan or control the future; stop overanalyzing or worrying about events that might never happen. DO move forward, no matter what, and learn to enjoy the busyness of life. DO worry about your purpose, or SEWA, which is the unique reason you were put on this earth. Once you discover this, nothing else will be as bad as it looks. DO perform service for others and find your meaning in the spark of spirit within each person you meet. Mixing anecdotes, stories from his family, quotations from Indian philosophy and history, this book is a wake-up call to stop waiting and start living.

The Hidden Brain

How Our Unconscious Minds Elect Presidents, Control Markets, Wage Wars, and Save Our Lives

The hidden brain is the voice in our ear when we make the most important decisions in our lives—but we’re never aware of it. The hidden brain decides whom we fall in love with and whom we hate. It tells us to vote for the white candidate and convict the dark-skinned defendant, to hire the thin woman but pay her less than the man doing the same job. It can direct us to safety when disaster strikes and move us to extraordinary acts of altruism. But it can also be manipulated to turn an ordinary person into a suicide terrorist or a group of bystanders into a mob. In a series of compulsively readable narratives, Shankar Vedantam journeys through the latest discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral science to uncover the darkest corner of our minds and its decisive impact on the choices we make as individuals and as a society. Filled with fascinating characters, dramatic storytelling, and cutting-edge science, this is an engrossing exploration of the secrets our brains keep from us—and how they are revealed.

A past filled with sexual and emotional abuse has left Marcus Quincy, as he would often say, "One more childhood trauma away from becoming the next Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacy." Due to his tumultuous past, Marcus has frequently been exposed to the cruelty and ignorance of others and has slowly distanced himself from the outside world and all of the people in it. All, that is, but his beautiful wife Anna and their twin daughters Tara and Tori. Marcus loves his family more than life itself and he will do anything for them! Marcus struggles with the concept of becoming the savior of a world he has spent his life hiding from, a world he has grown to despise. He reflects on his past, how ridicule and discrimination had molded him into a potential time bomb of violence and hatred, and how choice and the unconditional bond of love he shares with his family had saved him from that dark path. Guided by a being of light and hunted by a psychotic version of himself from another reality, Marcus embarks on a journey throughout the multiple realities of Heaven, Hell, and the known universe in search of the pieces to the Divine Engine, mankind's only hope of stopping Armageddon. The story unveils Marcus' struggles with his past and his faith, humanity and all its frailties, the possible existence of Heaven and Hell, and above all else, the ripple effect a single choice can have on future events. Will Marcus find the faith within himself and all of humanity to gather the knowledge and power to confront pure evil? And can Marcus make the ultimate sacrifice to save the human race?

Moms: Look to the gospel for your rest, joy, sufficiency, and motivation. For far too long mothers have been beaten down by the law of "do better" and "try harder." The burden of "getting it right" threatens to crush weary souls who desire to serve their families faithfully. Christ in the Chaos brings comfort to conflicted hearts that are starved of grace and longing for the freedom in Christ the Bible promises. In this book, Kimm Crandall emphasizes the importance of the gospel and how Christ's life, death, and resurrection change every aspect of motherhood. From finding our identity in Christ and understanding God's grace to taking off the mask of acceptability and dealing with the comparison crud, this book will free you to serve your family knowing that his love for you does not change based on your performance. Christ in the Chaos is a "must read" for every mother who longs for what is seemingly impossible: peace and freedom in the midst of her chaos.

Messiness adds benefits to our lives, so why do we resist the concept so? Harford uses research from neuroscience, psychology and social science to explain why disorder, confusion, and disarray are actually lies at the core of how we innovate, how we achieve, how we reach each other. He shows that the human inclination for tidiness can mask a deep and debilitating fragility that keep us from innovation.

Embrace the Pain of the Past, the Chaos of the Present, and the Uncertainty of the Future

Personal acceptance can be difficult, especially when you have to overcome family troubles, personal traumas, and tests. Dealing with low self-esteem, not having any self-worth, and living without an understanding of Gods love is a recipe for mediocrity and settling for the crumbs instead of pressing into the fullness of Gods blessingsbecause God has so much in store for those who love, trust, and obey him. In Embrace, author Olympia Pringle takes you through her own personal journey of struggle to embrace herself, what God says about her, and all that he has in store for her. Olympias story is a story of mental transformation, heart purification, and walking in revelation, and she shows you how even though it is difficult to pull yourself out of the pit, God always holds out his hand to pull you up and out. In order to live a life of fullness, we have to embrace the pain of the past, the chaos or the mundaneness of the present, and the uncertainty of the futureand in God we can do these things confidently and boldly. He will help us to overcome doubt, shame, guilt, and fear. And as we walk daily with the Lord and continue to surrender, He will give us the courage and boldness to live the life He promised for us.

But her new life comes with plenty of its own dramatic—and dangerous—complications . . . and Isadora quickly learns there's no such thing as a clean break from family.
