Monkey Taming Book Description :

"You've eaten too much, you fat pig." When Jessica was thirteen years old, she met the Monkey. The Monkey lived inside her: a driving, fiery voice telling her that thinness was the only way. The only way to be safe, to be good, to be acceptable and above all, to escape from the cold, looming threat of approaching adulthood. Jessica listened to the Monkey, and it consumed her. This is the illuminating story of a teenage girl's wanderings in darkness: the spiral down into madness, the terrible realities of an adolescent psychiatric unit, and the stark choice that she must either tame her monster - or die. Through memory, reflection, and enduring black humour, Jessica makes a tenuous peace with the world and with her emerging adult self....

Mindfulness Taming of the Monkey Mind Book Description :

Proven, easy to understand Mindfulness Guide to bring calmness and clarity to your life. Do you sometimes feel as if your brain is out of control? Do you wake up every day with your mind already racing, thinking of all the things you need to accomplish? Throughout the day, are you pulled in a hundred different directions at once? Lying in bed at night, do you replay the day's events, fretting over the things you should or should not have said or done? If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. This common affliction is sometimes referred to as monkey mind.

The Taming of the Samurai Book Description :

Modern Japan offers us a view of a highly developed society with its own internal logic. Eiko Ikegami makes this logic accessible to us through a sweeping investigation into the roots of Japanese organizational structures. She accomplishes this by focusing on the diverse roles that the samurai have played in Japanese history. From their rise in ancient Japan, through their dominance as warrior lords in the medieval period, and their subsequent transformation to quasi-bureaucrats at the beginning of the Tokugawa era, the samurai held center stage in Japan until their abolishment after the opening up of Japan in the mid-nineteenth century. This book demonstrates how Japan's so-called harmonious collective culture is paradoxically connected with a histo...
