Kaplan World Spanish rights: Obelisco, 102 pages, 30,505 words, January 2015 The Garden of Light is a fable that finds its purest inspiration in the works of the great Rudyard Kipling, not only because of the exoticism, or the anthropomorphic characterization of animals, like the Jungle Book, but also because of the powerful sense of mystery that pervades it, the search for a primeval mysticism, sometimes almost shamanic, that endures, apart from the whirl of the world, in this mythical place, hidden in the jungle, that is the secret Garden of Light. It is also the story of a journey of initiation, Whishna s, the heir of a kingdom in Hindustan and a pilgrim of the Dharma during the time that Buddha was spreading his doctrine.

Kaplan is the pseudonym of an author who has published five books in Spain, novels and short story collections, with great recognition from the critics.

Depression, anxiety and obsession are our primary opponents and when we let ourselves keep trapped by them we lose the ability fully live our lives. Life is for enjoyment: loving, learning, discovering and this we can fully only do once we ve gotten over our neurosis (or fear, which is the main symptom). Rafael Santandreu, also author of the book THE SCHOOL OF HAPPINESS (RBA, Barcelona 2009), is a psychologist specialized in cognitive therapy. Following the model of one of the great masters, Wayne Dyer, author of the acclaimed Your Erroneous Zones: Step-by-Step Advice for Escaping the Trap of Negative Thinking and Taking Control of Your Life, Santandreu offers us a clear, concrete and practical method for achieving psychological change, improving our relationships with ourselves and overcoming all of the negative thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that needlessly make us miserable. Rafael was also chief editor of MENTE SANA magazine, a leading psychology magazine in Spain. Non-fiction

15 Women s Popular Psychology: Aging TAN FRESCAS: Las nuevas mujeres mayores del siglo xxi (So Refreshing: The New Mature Woman in the 21st Century) by Anna Freixas with prologue by Rosa Regàs World Spanish rights: Contextos collection, Paidós imprint (Planeta), 336 pages, April 2013 Essential reading for every woman over 40. This is the first book targeting the extensive collective of older women who, in contrast with previous generations, still maintain active and creative lives. A text that helps to break away from the social taboos that apply to older people, in particular women, who are socially considered invisible once they ve turned fifty years old. A new generation of older women are beginning to surface: these are the daughters of rock & roll and feminism, and today they are sixty, seventy, and eighty years old. They have broken a plethora of molds, they re independent, active and exigent, and the former stereotype of the demure older woman just doesn t fit. In this refreshing and necessary book, the author breaks down a host of previously unspoken about themes and situations that mature women experience today. The author: Anna Freixas, (Barcelona) lives in Cordoba Spain. She has a PhD in Psychology from the University of Barcelona and is now a retired professor from the University of Cordoba. Her lines of research and her publications fundamentally deal with women and aging, co-education, and feminism. The author has published with Paidós previously NUESTRA MENOPAUSIA (Our Menopause) in 2007, and co-wrote with Clara Coria in 2005 LOS CAMBIOS EN LA VIDA DE LAS MUJERES as well as ABUELAS, MADRES, HIJAS (Grandmothers, Mothers, and Daughters)in 2005 with Icaria Editorial.

16 Popular Psychology DE ILUSIONES TAMBIÉN SE MALVIVE (Living on Hope Alone is Also Just Scraping By) by Xavier Guix World Spanish rights: Ediciones B - Catalan rights: Ediciones B 288 pages, May 2014 Has appeared in the top 10 on bestsellers lists for print non-fiction and in the top 100 of Amazon Spain s Kindle Store for Essay. This is a book for lovers of psychology, for seekers of authenticity, for those of who want to live with awareness. The process of self-knowledge and the search for our deepest, most spiritual nature, is a path filled with challenges which this book explores in depth. Our reading allows us to delve into the construction of our identity, into the illusory states of the mind and into the power of our beliefs, as well as the dissatisfaction and emptiness produced by our exaggerated expectations of life, of others, and of ourselves. The way to get rid of ongoing false hope and self-deception does not consist in denying yourself any hope at all, but rather in getting to know yourself. Xavier Guix Here we have the Xavier Guix s most mature book, the book we ve been waiting for. Few authors would be capable of integrating psychology and spirituality with such accessibility and precision. Javier Melloni, author of El Deseo esencial This book invites us to daydream, to practice clarity, and not to give up on life. Francesc Torralba, author of El valor de ser uno mismo Perhaps it s correct that living on hope alone is also just scraping by, not truly living. But who wants to just scrape by, to not live fully? I ve never met anyone who, like me, is not looking looking for the way to live fully, with peace and tranquility. To love and be loved. Xavier Guix The author: Xavier Guix has a degree in psychology and is specialized in communication and Neurolinguistic Programming. He works as a therapist as well as teacher at the business school EADA, giving courses on leadership and personal growth. He likewise gives conferences worldwide and appears on the radio and TV. Xavier Guix is considered one of the most important Spanish authors of personal growth books. His books have been published with great success in many Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries, with publishers including Pergaminho, Sinais do fogo, and Lua de papel in Portugal and Ciranda in Brazil.

18 Creativity LA RECONQUISTA DE LA CREATIVIDAD: Cómo recuperar la capacidad de crear que llevamos dentro (Reconquering Our Creativity: How to Recover Our Innate Capacity to Create) by Fernando Trías de Bes World Spanish rights: Conecta (imprint of Penguin Random House), 144 pages (approx.); words (approx.), May 2014, final ms available in April 2014 Creativity has no end, it has no limits at all beyond those which life itself establishes. When life is over, creativity will also end. But while there s life, creativity will continue to exist. And this, because we are intelligent and living, breathing human beings, is great news. Creativity is an ability innate to the human condition. This is the point of departure for Fernando Trías de Bes s reflections in Reconquering Our Creativity. The act of creating is an inseparable part of our existence. Nevertheless, as our lives advance we progressively lose the impulse of this ability. Fear of making mistakes, the tyranny of logic, our educational systems and protocols as well as routines produce efficient, well-adjusted individuals but these circumstances lead us to progressively limit our capacity to create. The good news is that creative ability remains latent inside of us and can be rediscovered. Fernando Trías de Bes offers us a series of practical tools for reconquering our capacity to create, including the identification and eradication of obstacles and inhibitors of the creative process as well as a series of stimulators for creativity. The author: Fernando Trías de Bes (1967) is a writer and economist. He was born and raised and currently lives in Barcelona. He is the author of many prize winning essays in the fields of economics and business such as Marketing Lateral (2003), La buena suerte (2004), El vendedor de tiempo (2005), El libro negro del emprendedor (2007), El hombre que cambió su casa por un tulipán (2009), Innovar para ganar (2011) and El gran cambio (2013). And he is also the author of novels and short stories: Relatos absurdos (2006), Palabras bajo el mar (2006), El coleccionista de sonidos (2007), La historia que me escribe (2008), Tinta (2011), Mil Millones de Mejillones (2010), illustrated by Toni Batllori.

19 Culinary Essay MUERTE A LA CARTA by Andrés Madrigal & Eric Frattini Spanish ms available in early Cover Image Coming Soon The definitive book that delves into historical figures Last Suppers or last meals. When we hear about the Last Supper what usually comes to mind is da Vinci s painting of Christ s last supper, where he announces that one of his disciples, seated beside him, will betray him. It s said that from that moment on, the last meal that a condemned man has is called his Last Supper. Conquistadores, messiahs, soldiers, emperors, presidents, ocean liners, gangsters, serial killers, mafiosos, actors, writers, dictators, actresses, musicians, Popes, space shuttles, politicians, drug traffickers, athletes, princesses, planes and even a restaurant, all have one thing in common: their Last Supper. The 50 celebrities that appear in this book ate all kinds of things during their last supper, lunch, or dinner, from complicated dishes like roasted fish with mango, grilled eel, roasted chicken with chestnut cream, or poached salmon with a mousseline sauce to a simple roastbeef sandwich, half a bottle of red wine, or a simple banana muffin. The majority of them had no idea that this would be the last meal they would have. Abraham Lincoln didn t know who John Wilkes Booth was when he had dinner with his wife, Mary Todd, that afternoon of the 15th of April, 1865 at the White House, a dinner of roasted chicken stuffed with chestnuts, yams, and baked cauliflower with cheese. Nor did John F. Kennedy know who Lee Harvey Oswald was when he had breakfast with his wife Jackie the morning of the 22nd of November 1963 at the Texas Hotel: poached eggs, bacon, Linden Dale goat cheese, toast, raspberry jam, orange juice and coffee. For the Non-fiction

20 16th and 35th Presidents of the United States, these were the last foods they ate before their assasinations. On a different note, the murderers Peter Kürten, Adolf Eichmann, Perry Smith, Richard Hickock, Ted Bundy or Aileen Wuornos, who also are included in this book, would all eat their last meals in a cell on Death Row in different prisons in the US, Israel, and Germany. The authorities of these countries granted them, murderers, a last meal, something that they did not grant their victims. What the 1635 victims of the RMS Titanic, the 36 victims of the Hindenburg, the 7 of the Challenger, the 109 of the Concorde, the 32 victims of Costa Concordia, didn t know is that one night they were going to have their Last Supper. Nor did Alexander Magnum, Napoleon or Rasputin know that mixing good food with poison was not the best for their health, and even less with drugs which is what happened to Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, John Belushi, Heath Ledger, and Michael Jackson. Poisoned, shot down, crucified, drowned, beheaded, burned to death, crashed, hung, poisoned, electrocuted, or dead by their own hand, the truth is the 50 famous people that make up this book all have one thing in common: they decided to eat before boarding Charon s boat.
