Dennis, a London based breath coach and workshop leader who was trained by Judith Kravitz (Transformational Breath) has written a guide on deep breathing for health and happiness.

The average person inhales and exhales about 20,000 times a day; however, most of those breaths are short and shallow and are known as "stress breaths" because they just reach the chest. This kind of breath creates a constant "fight or flight" response in the body and according to the World Health Organization, they believe that by 2020 depression and anxiety will be the number one disability worldwide.

Throughout the book, there are exercises that are described to guide you through deep diaphragmatic, conscious breathing. These are tools you can use throughout your day and can be done anywhere whenever you need. In addition Rebecca reminds us that breathing is natural and we must retrain our mind to this way of being.

LEO FENDER: THE QUIET GIANT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD
Leadership Institute Press
Phyllis Fender + Randall Bell

In the midst of some of the greatest inventions that the world has also enjoyed, Leo Fender created the electric guitar. His interest in electronics lead him to open a radio repair shop in his hometown of Fullerton, California. Band leaders and musicians knew that if their equipment needed to be repaired, then they should go to him.

Leo invented the Fender Stratocaster 

which has been embraced and was/is preferred by world-renowned musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Jeff Beck — to name a few.

Although his work was enjoyed by vibrant luminaries, Leo was a shy inventor who was nearly deaf and had one glass eye.

Beyond designing his notable quitars, in 1946 he founded Fender Electric Instrument Manufacturing Company — the launch pad for his most iconic designs — and later on, G&L Musical Instruments. 

Leo Fender: The Quiet Giant Heard Around the World shares his story.

THE COMFORT FOOD DIARIES.jpg

THE COMFORT FOOD DIARIES
Simon & Schuster
Emily Nunn

When Eat, Pray, Love came out it shared a woman's internal journey through her physical travels. In this transformative and introspective process, Emily Nunn shares how she faced the loss of her brother's death, her break up with her fiancé and being evicted from her home. She finds her way back to herself through travel, homecooked meals and enjoying her circle of friends and family in The Comfort Food Diaries.

This new journey was triggered by a few glasses of wine and sharing what was going on with her by sharing her thoughts on Facebook. The next day, she realizes that her friends and family are embracing and empathetic for what has happened to her and ask her to not only stay but cook with them. Ultimately, she embraces the thought of the Comfort Food Tour.

This book takes you on Emily's journey as she puts her life back together with new experiences
while revisiting old places and recipes that allow her to put things into perspective.


THE DUDE DIET
Harper Wave
Serena Wolf

We all love the idea of comfort food that is satisfying; however, we want it to still be healthy (and in some cases healthyish). Welcome to The Dude Diet which is Clean(ish) food for people who like to eat dirty!

Created by chef and founder of Domesticate-Me.com, she has assembled amazingly delicious, yet deceptively healthy recipes for guys (as well as the people who love them)! In addition to these recipes, they are accompanied by full-color photography which will only encourage
you to want to make these dishes, whether it's for gameday, friends who are coming over or for an epic weekend of Netflix and Chill. It seems that the option of takeout just might be put on the back burner for now.

SLEEPING BEAUTIES
Simon and Schuster
Stephen King + Owen King

We're definitely intrigued about Sleeping Beauties which is written by master horror/thriller writer Stephen King and his son, Owen King. They push the envelope with a simple question, what would happen if women were to disappear from the world of men?

Everything starts when women go to sleep, they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If you attempt to awaken them or if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. But when they stay asleep, they go to another place of peace where conflict rarely takes place and harmony reigns.

Only one woman, Eve Black is immune to this sleeping condition. This causes the all male community to wonder what they should do about her as they move towards violence. All of this takes place in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison.
