The award-winning New York Times bestseller that inspired BTS's K-pop song 'Magic Shop'. The day that 12-year-old James Doty walked in to his local magic shop is the day that changed his life. Once the neglected son of an alcoholic father and a mother with chronic depression, he has gone on to become a leading neurosurgeon, based at Stanford University. He credits Ruth for this incredible turnaround: the remarkable woman he met at the Cactus Rabbit Magic Shop, who devoted the summer to transforming his mind and opening his heart. In this uplifting memoir, Jim explains the visualisation techniques Ruth taught him that gave him the self-esteem to imagine a new future for himself. He examines the science behind mindfulness and why the skills he learned - of focus and attention - now help him to think fast and keep calm in the operating theatre. And he shows us what is possible when you start to change your brain and your heart. Into the Magic Shopimparts some powerful life lessons about how to live better, and inspires us to believe that we all have inside us the capacity to change our own destiny. 'I'm sure many readers will be moved by this inspiring story to open their hearts and see what they too can do for others' - His Holiness the Dalai Lama

There's a certain sound the scalp makes when it's being ripped off of a skull like a largepiece of Velcro tearing away from its source. The sound is loud and angry and just a little bit sad. Inmedical school they don't have a class that teaches you the sounds and smells of brain surgery. Theyshould. The drone of the heavy drill as it bores through the skull. The bone saw that fills the operatingroom with the smell of summer sawdust as it carves a line connecting the burr holes made from the drill.The reluctant popping sound the skull makes as it is lifted away from the dura, the thick sac that coversthe brain and serves as its last line of defense against the outside world. The scissors slowly slicingthrough the dura. When the brain is exposed you can see it move in rhythm with every heartbeat, andsometimes it seems that you can hear it moan in protest at its own nakedness and vulnerability itssecrets exposed for all to see under the harsh lights of the operating room.The boy looks small in the hospital gown and is almost swallowed up by the bed as he's waiting toenter surgery.

Emma Burblee couldn't be more different from her parents if she tried. She'd rather dig for treasure in a park than try on the latest fashions or discuss her vain parents' favorite subject: themselves. When Emma mortifies her parents at a dinner party, her punishment is immediate.

Although Emma's days revolve around cooking and cleaning, there is one bright spot. Her uncle's sweet tooth means she gets to visit the town bakery, Mr. Crackle's Cake Shop, all the time. This world-renowned baker is as charming and kind as Uncle Simon is vile. But then Emma discovers a plot by Uncle Simon and one of his shady acquaintances; they've set their sights on ruining Mr. Crackle (and the entire dessert making industry for that matter). Can Emma stop their evil plan? First-time author Meika Hashimoto's effervescent tale, filled with funny characters and adventures, will have readers checking their cupboards for mouth-watering ingredients and secret portals.
