We breathe without thinking about it—but those life-giving breaths are actively at the heart of everything that we do, and the single common denominator underlying every dimension of our being. The power of breath goes beyond the need for oxygen; conscious breathing techniques can accelerate healing, improve cognitive skills, enhance sex and intimacy, intensify meditation, boost athletic performance, and open our receptivity to greater spiritual awareness. Perfect Breathing teaches us how to become conscious of that all-important breath, to recognize those situations where we need to breathe most efficiently, and to remember to take full, cleansing, powerful breaths every moment of the day. Each section contains valuable information that applies to significant areas of your life—your health, mind and emotions, physical performance, and spirituality—so you’ll grasp the scope, breadth, and influence of breathing on each one. The techniques are all relatively simple to master; with just a few minutes a day and this easy-to-follow program, you’ll slowly integrate conscious breathing into your life and routine. Backed by compelling science and evidence from people for whom breathing is central (astronauts, fighter pilots, Olympic athletes, adventurers, performing artists, and others), and complete with exercises that address specific problems, Perfect Breathing is an important book in the science of breathing and a critical link to living longer, healthier, more robust lives.

The fourth leading cause of death in the United States, COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, affects an estimated 35 million Americans. Yet only half are aware that they are seriously ill. Life and Breath, by Dr. Neil Schachter, is the first book that alerts people to their risks for COPD and explains the steps they need to take to prevent the development of this debilitating and often fatal lung disease. Life and Breath begins witha quick quiz to rate your risk for COPD. It explains the steps of a complete pulmonary work-up and teaches you about the painless, inexpensive six-second test that can save your life. We all know that diet, exercise, and environmental changes can reduce the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer. Now, for the first time, Life and Breath provides the medical and lifestyle steps that can prevent, treat, and sometimes reverse the signs and symptoms of chronic lung disease. Dr. Schachter discusses the role of antioxidants in treating asthma and chronic bronchitis, explains why indoor exercise is better if you have irritable airways, and provides a supportive, simple, and successful plan to quit smoking. Life and Breath takes you on a tour of your own home, pointing out sources of irritants and allergens that can cause pulmonary problems. Dr. Schachter explains how to improve indoor air quality to protect your lungs at any age, on the job, in your home, and on the road. If you are one of the 15 million Americans with asthma, or one of the 94 million current or former smokers in this country, Life and Breath is the one book you need to stay alive and well. From the Hardcover edition.

By taking control of your breathing patterns, you can dramatically improve your health and well-being. Easy-to-learn breathing techniques and exercises can help you find serenity, detach yourself from pain, alleviate asthma and even give up smoking. These seemingly revolutionary ideas are neither new nor unfounded. Thousands of years ago, people saw the vital association between life and breath. Yogis, t'ai chi masters, Tibetan monks, Taoists and others equated the breath of life with the spirit or life force. In India, they called it prana; in Latin, it was spiritus; in Ancient Greece, pneuma; in ancient Hawaii, ha; in China, chi; and in Japan, ki. In all these cultures, the study of breathing was the key to achieving physical, mental, emotional and spiritual mastery. In more recent times, health-care professionals, athletes, professional dancers and singers have come to extol the virtues of "conscious breathing." Dr. Sheldon Hendler, author of The Oxygen Breakthrough, wrote, "Breathing right is unquestionably the single most important thing you can do to improve your life. It will help you to live a longer, more energetic and stress-free life." Now Breathe for Life by Sophie Gabriel lets you fill a prescription for a healthy, hearty, and harmonious life one breath at a time. The book presents step-by-step directions for breathing exercises and techniques, amply illustrated with photos and diagrams. Expert professional opinions and explanations of the benefits of good breathing are also included.

A mystical dialogue between a male author and his creation, this posthumous work has never before been translated, and is a book of particular beauty and strangeness. A mystical dialogue between a male author (a thinly disguised Clarice Lispector) and his/her creation, a woman named Angela, this posthumous work has never before been translated. Lispector did not even live to see it published. At her death, a mountain of fragments remained to be “structured” by Olga Borelli. These fragments form a dialogue between a god-like author who infuses the breath of life into his creation: the speaking, breathing, dying creation herself, Angela Pralini. The work’s almost occult appeal arises from the perception that if Angela dies, Clarice will have to die as well. And she did.

Nothing is as elemental, as essential to human life, as the air we breathe. Yet around the world, in rich countries and poor ones, it is quietly poisoning us. Air pollution prematurely kills seven million people every year, including more than one hundred thousand Americans. It is strongly linked to strokes, heart attacks, many kinds of cancer, dementia, and premature birth, among other ailments. In Choked, Beth Gardiner travels the world to tell the story of this modern-day plague, taking readers from the halls of power in Washington and the diesel-fogged London streets she walks with her daughter to Poland’s coal heartland and India’s gasping capital. In a gripping narrative that’s alive with powerful voices and personalities, she exposes the political decisions and economic forces that have kept so many of us breathing dirty air. This is a moving, up-close look at the human toll, where we meet the scientists who have transformed our understanding of pollution’s effects on the body and the ordinary people fighting for a cleaner future. In the United States, air is far cleaner than it once was. But progress has failed to keep up with the science, which tells us that even today’s lower pollution levels are doing real damage. And as the Trump administration rips up the regulations that have brought us where we are, decades of gains are now at risk. Elsewhere, the problem is far worse, and choking nations like China are scrambling to replicate the achievements of an American agency—the EPA—that until recently was the envy of the world. Clean air feels like a birthright. But it can disappear in a puff of smoke if the rules that protect it are unraveled. At home and around the world, it’s never been more important to understand how progress happened and what dangers might still be in store. Choked shows us that we hold the power to build a cleaner, healthier future: one in which breathing, life’s most basic function, no longer carries a hidden danger.

"So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.Then said He unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army."-Ezekiel 37:7-10
