A portable treasury of gems from a lifetime of Wisdom. To know Lama Yeshe was to know he loved chocolate; it was his favorite metaphor to describe the nature of our attachments. This funny and trenchant little volume answers the question of how we can be happy even after the "chocolate" has run out. By cutting the cords of attachment, we discover the indestructible happiness that has always been--and always will be--available to us. Capturing the remarkable personality of Lama Yeshe, who played an integral role in introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the western world, When the Chocolate Runs Out will delight both readers who knew Lama Yeshe for decades and those who have never encountered this timelessly inspiring teacher. At once lighthearted and profound, this delightful book of wisdom is a perfect companion to How to Be Happy by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

If you can identify with any of the following, this book is for you! Me-time is selfish and time-wasting. It's easier to say yes to others than to myself. My work computer is part of my vacation luggage. My goal is to live the biblical definition of joy: Jesus first, others second, yourself last. For many Christians, the concept of loving themselves sounds contrary to Jesus's words: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross" (Matthew 16:24 NIV). Does ''Love your neighbor as yourself" mean our earthly needs are as important as our service to others? Each chapter of Self-Care: Selfish or Sacred? An Interactive Guide to Myths and Misunderstandings looks at a myth about self-care, shares the author's personal struggle, and identifies misconceptions. Scriptural explanations, questions, and prayer prompts are included with blank spaces for interactive use. The book's easy-to-use format is conducive to personal or group study.

Bathed in the Caribbean Sea, Cuba is the largest Caribbean islands. It also offers small islands with paradisiacal landscapes. Cuba is a destination for all age groups and where the welcome is very warm. There are a thousand things to do, visiting the cities that bear the marks of the colonial era of the Revolution or to relax on sandy beaches. Athletes will also be met. You can go diving to discover the beauty of the seabed of the Caribbean Sea, or hiking, between mountains and forest. Cuba is also a city of clichés. Cigars, music, American cars, beaches, Castro and the embargo is what could characterize Cuba. But the island is full of fantastic sites not always known to tourists.

**THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** 'I don't think I've ever read a book that has made me cry with laughter as much as this one. It was very difficult reading it in public as I looked like a madman' - Richard Herring James Acaster has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times and has appeared on prime-time TV shows like TASKMASTER, MOCK THE WEEK, LIVE AT THE APOLLO and WOULD I LIE TO YOU? But behind the fame and critical acclaim is a man perpetually getting into trouble. Whether it's disappointing a skydiving instructor mid-flight, hiding from thugs in a bush wearing a bright red dress, or annoying the Kettering Board Games club, a didgeridoo-playing conspiracy theorist and some bemused Christians, James is always finding new ways to embarrass himself. Appearing on Josh Widdicombe's radio show to recount these stories, the feature was christened 'James Acaster's classic scrapes'. Here, in his first book, James recounts these tales (including never-before-heard stories) along with self-penned drawings, in all their glorious stupidity.
