So it is July. Ringo Starr will turn 79 this month. We will head to one enormous event early on and then we will all head back to HQ to tidy up. I'm thinking about staying late one evening and installing a hot tub in the back of the store. Right in front of psychoanalysis. I plan to leave enough room to browse in between the hot tub and the books. I'll examine the pros and cons before following through. I will keep you all posted.
So if you scroll down a bit you will see mention of a sale. The nature of our business means that we have a number of pricey books. We are having a summer sale on some of these gorgeous manuals of smarty-pants. Everyone knows that summer is a time of cool refreshments, sunshine, and books that dive deeply into the clinical aspects of mental health. I believe the beach boys wrote a tune about this. It is called Kokomo.
Did you know that you can sing the words "summertime is here" along with the melody for Vince Guaraldi's Christmas Time is Here? It's such a beautiful melody. Give it a go! Every season deserves a beautiful melody and I believe you do as well.
Even though it is a bad idea I sometimes wish I could ride a polar bear around. That polar bear and me would be such good pals. See you in August my lovelies.


Our 2019 Catalogue is absolutely scrumptious. We sent a bunch out to those who asked us to. Did you not get one? Would you like one? please email us here

Guess what? We're *finally* having a sale on select publishers (the expensive ones, at that)!
We're offering 15% off of all Routledge, Karnac, CRC Press, Psychology Press, Gestalt Press, Speechmark AND Left Coast Press titles.
The sale starts right now—yes, right now, you read it correctly—and goes through the rest of the summer.
Come visit us at the store or at any of our conference book stalls, we'll be happy to show you what's what. The sale is also available through our website, so no need to worry about missing out of you're not in Toronto.

2. No more events for July? Ok. Let's have fun then . . .

"A tour de force. This book elaborates in exquisite detail--yet with utter accessibility and clarity--what mindfulness is and where it comes from, as well as its profound ethical foundation, clinical applications, growing evidence base, and potential for healing. The depth of the case studies alone exemplifies the elemental wisdom inherent to the practice of mindfulness, and how it can be applied in trying and challenging life situations to beneficial effect."--Jon Kabat-Zinn

The Edge of Every Day: Sketches of Schizophrenia
