Adrian Tomine's Sleepwalk is a collection of short comics, so understated and engrossing that the effect is cinematic. There is something voyeuristic about Tomine's style. Each story is brief, intimate and contains enough subtext to last a novel.  Each character is someone you know, someone you are, or someone you've passed on the street without a second thought. Honest and unsentimental - but that's life.

With each chapter detailing a different child's story, Bruce Perry shows us how resilient children can be despite the most developmentally disabling traumatic experiences. Just as fascinating as the cases detailed in this book is Dr. Perry's innovative approach to therapy. He looks at each case from a neurodevelopmental perspective and pinpoints which milestones the child has missed out on due to trauma. A four-year-old who was neglected for the first two years of life is not a four year old, but an infant. According to Dr. Perry you must treat her as an infant before you can expect any healing as a four-year-old. Controversial to some, his methods have been extremely effective and have earned him a great deal of recognition in the psychological community. If you are interested in childhood development, trauma, neurobiology, or just human nature in general, read this book. Informative as well as inspirational!

Have you ever witnessed someone crying and found yourself moved to do the same? Or observed a person in a circumstance so awkward that you feel their discomfort as if it was your own? Or have you ever simply wondered at the astonishing ease with which your loved ones can look into your eyes and immediately decipher your mood? The key: mirror neurons. When we observe the emotions of others, our brains automatically fire off the same neurons as if we were experiencing that emotion ourselves. Every interaction we have is based on our ability to unconsciously read other people's intentions and emotions. Read this book and learn how neurologically intertwined you are with every person you encounter.
