Yellow Kite is publishing Into the Magic Shop by Dr James Doty – “a neurosurgeon’s true story of the life-changing magic of compassion and mindfulness”.
The book tells the story of how Doty as a young boy, struggling to find a direction in life, found meditation and mindfulness by a chance meeting – through the mother of a magic shop owner – which changed his life. Doty went onto study at Stanford University and become director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, which he co-founded with the Dalai Lama. The book is “part memoir, part science, part inspiration and part practical instruction”.
Publisher Liz Gough bought UK and Commonwealth rights for the Hodder & Stoughton imprint from Sabila Khan, rights director at Penguin US. The book is being published by Avery in the US.
