4.  Neil's review of Meaning and Melancholia
View this email in your browser
Well, welcome to 2019. I hope new year's eve was civilized and enjoyable for everyone. We closed early and all lived life to the fullest. I think the publishers have resolutions in mind when they release a book like this on new year's eve. New beginnings and clean slates and whathaveyou. So many books could be extra relevant at the beginning of January. How about this one, or that one, or Eat Right Feel Right? I never manage to confirm any new year's resolutions myself. I'm always too busy being annoyed about the ones I did not make the previous year. While my eyebrows are fully crumpled the time flies by and, soon enough, it is 2020. . .whoa! Easy Neil. Easy. 2019 will do just fine.
Our January is a little quiet on paper but, in person, it is still somewhat hectic. It may look like we just take books out of boxes and move them around until we put them in other boxes so they can be sent away. Sometimes that is exactly what is going on but sometimes there is more to it. Like a beautiful onion slowly revealing its layers. You'll find all about the nitty gritty of book selling when I publish my memoirs. The working title is The High Octane Life of Newsletter Neil. I'll keep you posted.
In February we will count all our books and make official notes on our findings. Then we'll resume the conference trail after that. Until then we are cleaning up and looking under rocks, and under desks, to make sure no eggnog has been forgotten. We have an abnormally large list of new books as well (see below).
In any case I cannot think of a better bunch of pairs of eyes to head into the next 365 with. Thanks for being here.

We are very excited about the newest title from Stan Tatkin.
Committing fully to a loving partnership—a “we”—can be one of the most beautiful and fulfilling experiences you’ll ever have. Yet as anyone in a long-term relationship will tell you, it can also be one of the most challenging. Almost half of all first marriages end in divorce, and chances go down from there. So, how do you beat the odds? In We Do, psychotherapist Stan Tatkin provides a groundbreaking system for helping couples create meaningful, enduring relationships. 
According to Tatkin, all couples—once major deal-breakers are out of the way—have the potential for [more. . .]

Events this month:
Well, this month is a quiet one. We will be feverishly trying to get the store looking like the pristine headquarters of a James Bond villain. I should say that we are not villains.

Meaning and Melancholia 
Christopher Bollas

Well I must say that I could not put this book down and am currently reading it again. Being the slowest reader in the world means that reading anything twice is usually out of the question. This book has been very popular with our customers from all professional, and non-professional, outlooks. This surprises me not at all as it smoothly discusses our society in terms of a collective, single, psyche to great effect. Bollas does it again. If you give it a whirl you will likely be happy you did. - Neil

Can't we all just get along? Eh? From top left to top right to bottom left to bottom right we have empathy, a good chunk of the back wall, a best seller that is uniting many, a long overdue think machine, a book we could all use, a book we have all opened, a smashing insight into Lacan, and When the Body Says No. We have good books here. We also love you and your tastes. Happy new year.
