Into the Magic Shop

A neurosurgeon's true story of the life-changing magic of compassion and mindfulness

´This book tells the remarkable story of a neurosurgeon´s quest to unravel the mystery of the link between our brains and our hearts. From the moment in his childhood when a simple act of kindness changed the course of his own life to his founding a center to study compassion at Stanford University. Jim Doty´s life illustrates how each of us can make a difference. We can make the world a more compassionate place. I´m sure many readers will be moved by this inspiring story to open their hearts and see what they too can do for others´
His Holiness the Dalai Lama


Into the Magic Shop offers a gripping, well-told journey into the mysteries of the human mind and brain. Neurosurgeon James Doty has written a heartwarming tale of courage and compassion´
Daniel Goleman
author of Emotional Intelligence
´In this profound and beautiful book, Dr Doty teaches us with his life, and the lessons he imparts are some of the most important of all: that happiness cannot be without suffering, that compassion is born from understanding our own suffering and the suffering of those around us, and that only when we have compassion in our hearts can we be truly happy´
Thich Nhat Hanh
Zen Master, global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist
Into the Magic Shop is not only a moving testimony that keeps the reader enthralled throughout the book, but also a powerful exhortation to live a more compassionate and meaningful life. Beautiful and highly inspiring´
Matthieu Ricard
Humanitarian and Buddhist monk,
author of Altruism: how compassion can change your life and the world
´Once in a generation, someone is able to articulate the compelling mystery within his or her life story in such a way that it captures the imagination of others and inspires them to align with what is deepest and best in themselves and allow it to manifest and flower. There is plenty of magic in this book, but the deepest magic of all is that Jim was openheartedly guided to start practising that aligning when he was twelve and trusted it enough to never lose the thread completely, even in the hardest of times. Behold what is emerging now´
Jon Kabat-Zinn
Founder of the Center for Mindfulness, Health Care and Society
and of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
