There’s an artist in all of us. For the artistically inclined, this statement is easier to accept. Some of us, on the other hand, have a harder time believing that our drafting skills will ever progress beyond our reliable (and often times endearing ) stick figures! But what if you knew that the problem isn’t a lack of talent but rather a lack of perspective? In Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, author Betty Edwards suggests that the visual art has more to do with activating the right kind of thinking. With this useful guide, you can finally tell that deeply passionate albeit dispirited friend to pick up some pencils and get to work!

The artist’s life confronts trials and challenges that can be incredibly frustrating for creative minds to overcome. Between strains on the creative process to developing a sense of individual confidence, the artist’s road is hard to travel. For those friends of ours who struggle with their artistic development, author Julia Cameron offers groundbreaking solutions in The Artist’s Way. A vital guide to navigating the artist’s life, Cameron’s introspective reflections on her own work as an artist can help illuminate some of the most personal problems that artist’s face themselves.
For some of us, football (like most sports) can be an educative experience. The game teaches us important life values such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. In this regard, Tim Tebow—football’s rising young star—has a lot more to offer his fans than his winning reputation. In Tebow Time, readers explore the profoundly moving challenges that Tebow has faced in his experience as an athlete and as human being. With in-depth analyses guiding the book, readers will learn through Tebow’s experiences about the power of humility, the value of compassion and the importance of integrity among other life lessons that are integral to success. In short, this book is perfect for the athlete in all of us.

For more than 30 years, Betty Edwards’ DRAWING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN has been a cornerstone text for artists of all skill levels—from beginners to professionals. Having sold nearly 2 million copies in the United States alone, this New York Times bestseller is the world’s most widely used drawing instruction book.
Daniel Pink, author of the New York Times bestseller A Whole New Mind, called it “A wonderful book.”
DRAWING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BRAIN: The Definitive Fourth Edition (Tarcher/Penguin, $32.95/hardcover, $19.95/paperback, $32.95 hardcover) helps readers deepen their artistic ability by channeling the power of right-brain perception. This all-new edition includes crucial updates based on current research on brain plasticity and the significance of right-brain learning. There are also new exercises that help your perception “cross over” from the dominant left brain mode to right. The new edition has a new focus on how exercising the right brain hemisphere can help balance out the left brain emphasis in American life. It also contains new information on how employing right-brain drawing skills can improve and broaden your everyday problem-solving skills.
