9780007130085: Human Moments: How to find meaning and love in your everyday life

Our biggest Thorsons acquisition to date. This was a hotly contested auction. Our key competitors all bid for these books and could see their huge market potential.

Life is a series of forgettable events unless we love. This inspirational book shows how, with the power of love and imagination, we can turn ordinary, inert moments into ‘human moments’, those moments when we feel most in the presence of what we're living for. The most reliable places to find these human moments are in the connections we make, the connections of the heart, to the people, places and things we love.

Dr Edward Hallowell shows, through real life examples, the meaning and power of these moments. He reveals how we can capture them – by noticing them and letting them matter – so they can infuse our daily lives with meaning and with love forever.

This book is the flagship of a major new series, which will develop in a similar way to Chicken Soup for the Soul. The book is organised as a series of stories, charting the extraordinary life of Edward Hallowell from troubled child to adult self. Each chapter then amplifies the themes from his own story with echoes of the same ideas in other people's stories, creating a complete picture of the possibility for happiness and meaning in everyday life. Includes:
• Childhood
• Families
• Teachers and schools
• Friendships
• Falling in love
• Marriage, relationships and parenthood.
