About Nathan Agin
After selling all his possessions in 2010, Nathan spent years traveling to nearly every state and visiting over 20 countries, hearing countless, fascinating stories along the way.
When he finally jumped into audiobooks in 2015, he discovered he still loved stories--only this time, he was giving them life.
When not narrating, he hangs out with his Mexican rescue dog Paz (always training!), bakes bread, nerds out on Shakespeare, and hosts a podcast interviewing longtime working actors, where he shares their personal stories in hopes of mentoring the next generation of performers.

The Coronavirus pandemic has revealed a very big secret we’ve been keeping from ourselves and each other: We can be remarkably agile in the face of change.
How is it that we are able to so radically and rapidly change our daily behavior in order to follow the social distancing and stay-at-home policies during the pandemic, and yet--pandemic or not--we typically find it difficult, if not impossible, to reach smaller personal goals like dieting, getting organized or changing destructive habits?
The pandemic is life-threatening, so it ignites our survival instincts, activating that part of our brains charged with speedily and efficiently getting us to safety. But cholesterol, alcohol, and physical passivity are all life-threatening, and many of us humans have done a lousy job changing in regard to these issues, even when we have reliable information that they are killing us. Why do we struggle to change what would so obviously help ourselves individually?
Ross Ellenhorn’s book, How we Change (and the Ten Reasons Why We Don’t) gives a fascinating answer. A clinician and thought leader in the mental health and addiction fields, he suggests that we’re often looking in the wrong direction when we try to decipher the factors that support human change. He suggests that it’s much more fruitful to look at why we don’t change, than figure out why we do. By looking at the reasons we don’t change, we give ourselves the best chance of actually changing in meaningful ways.
Ellenhorn explains how we are wired to double down on the familiar because of what he calls the "Fear of Hope" - the act of protecting ourselves from further disappointment—and identifies the “10 Reasons Not to Change” to help us see why we behave the way we do when we are faced with the challenge of hope. Among them are:
· To change means raising your expectations and thus risking that you’ll disappoint yourself.
· Once you change, you are more accountable to make other changes than if you stayed the same
· When you change, your future become much less predictable.
· Change means destroying psychological monuments you’ve built to commemorate past injuries
· Every time you change, you raise the possibility of losing or disrupting your relationship with certain people
By addressing this little known reality of fear of hope, and how it influences the 10 Reasons Not to Change, Ellenhorn actually gives us hope, helping us to work toward the change we seek. Ellenhorn speaks to the core of our insecurities and fears about ourselves, with a humor and kindness. By turning our judgments about self-destructive behaviors into curious questions about them, he teaches us to think about our actions to discover what we truly want - even if we’re going about getting it in the wrong way.
How We Change is a brilliant approach that will forever alter our perspective - and help us achieve the transformation we truly seek.

★★ 40TH ANNIVERSARY RE-ISSUE ★★
Welcome to Icy Cape, Alaska—the coldest part of the Cold War.
Follow Quinn and his team through their adventures of working at this remote radar station in the early 1960s. Faulty equipment, local wildlife, and the weather are just some of the obstacles these men must overcome to survive.
"This is the story of the emotions created by darkness, cold, isolation - fear and friendship. The DEW (Distant Early Warning) Line was one of the last frontiers of the American myth. It offered adventure, money, and an escape from reality and responsibility. It attracted descendants of the whaling men of two centuries ago, and the cowboys of the last century. These disparate personalities lived and worked side-by-side with Eskimos.
"The story is a fascinating juxtaposition of values and cultures - Chateaubriand and muktuk. The characters are definitely the men you might expect to be attracted to such remote outposts, they were the same men who would later migrate to jobs in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. But, at least as interesting was the world around them - the Arctic." (Charles Straven, 1980)
If you like historical fiction, you're going to really enjoy Icy Cape! John V. Griffin was one of the actual radar technicians at Icy Cape, and this book depicts a slice of life few have ever seen or known.

Are you looking to relax more? To worry less? To be calmer? To feel more focused, clear, and grounded?
How about other benefits like increasing your health, happiness, memory, and resilience (during hard times). Or lowering high blood pressure and reducing anxiety attacks?
It's all possible with meditation.
You don't need to take my word for it. The long-term benefits have been scientifically proven, and I'll share the evidence. Who am I? Good question. I'll let you in on that, too, and how meditation has changed my life.
"The affairs of the world will go on forever. Do not delay the practice of meditation." ~ Milarepa, Tibetan Buddhist, poet, and yogi
For the next 30 days, you'll have a short chapter with instruction, advice, tips, and your assignment for the following day—everything you need get started and keep going. By the end of 30 days, you'll be meditating for 5 minutes. See? Easy.
First day begins tomorrow.
From others who have taken the course:
"With so many things going on, it's hard to just focus in for a moment. Here's a free, easy starter to meditation. No pressure to buy anything, and it's helped me regain a little sanity!" ~ John, Los Angeles
"This was worth it! I would have absolutely paid for this, and it was even better than a class because I could do it in the comfort of my home and at the time that was convenient." ~ Phyllis, Boston
How amazing would it be to truly take time for yourself, to close off the external stimuli in life, to just listen to yourself, and to see what comes up? What a gift!
“Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It’s called meditation.” ~ Jonathan Haidt from The Happiness Hypothesis
Like with many things in life, there is no "good time to do this." You're here now for a reason. Let's get started. You'll thank yourself later.
