    More than thirty years ago, an entire generation sought a new way of life, looking for fulfillment and meaning in a way no one had before. Leaving his teaching job at Harvard, Ram Dass embodied the role of spiritual seeker, showing others how to find peace within themselves in one of the greatest spiritual classics of the twentieth century, the two-million-copy bestseller Be Here Now. As many of that generation enter the autumn of their years, the big questions of peace and of purpose have returned demanding answers. And once again, Ram Dass blazes a new trail, inviting all to join him on the next stage of the journey.

    Publisher reviews

    "A superb writer...infused with profound wisdom of the heart and mind, a welcome sense of humor and a savvy effectiveness in the real world." The San Francisco Chronicle"Back then, when we were young and easy, Ram Dass taught us to be fully present to our lives. Here and now we re not as young and it s not so easy, but he s still teaching us how to age with courage and compassion." Sam Keen, bestselling author of Fire in the Belly"Ram Dass continues to share his ongoing journey with us, to our great benefit, as usual. He is wiser here, more sober, more humble, and funnier than ever. There is so much to laugh about and cry about, to learn from, and to celebrate together." Jon Kabat-Zinn, bestselling author of Wherever You Go, There You Are and Full Catastrophe Living "Ram Dass has given us yet another blessing. When you finish this book you are wiser, freer, more awake, more in touch with your heart." Jack Kornfeld, author of A Path With Heart"There are many things one could say after reading a book as wonderful and profound as this one, but they all add up to the same thing. Thank you, Ram Dass, thanks a lot." Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., bestselling author ofKitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather s Blessings"Dass delves into the aspects of aging that terrify most of us and affirms there is an awareness in each of us that transcends all the attributes that necessarily diminish with age. Ram Dass shows readers of all ages that it is possible to stay present in the midst of suffering, to be still and know that God is here now." Publishers Weekly"Ram Dass is a superb writer. His example of gentleness and loving compassion is infused with profound wisdom of the heart and mind, a welcome sense of humor and a savvy effectiveness in the real world." The San Francisco Chronicle"This book is an astonishing gift of love and clarity. Ram Dass guides us through many dimensions of aging with courage, humor, and profound wisdom." Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and A Heart as Wide as the World"Ram Dass has entered the often stormy relationship between our physical and spiritual sides, and he has lived to tell about it. This is no gussied-up, glossed over personal account of illness, but an honest, courageous book that flows from the soul. Listen up, everybody, while Ram Dass tells it like it is." Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words"

    Calculating estimated delivery times

    Delivery is estimated at 1-3 working days after dispatch (depending upon options chosen at checkout) PLUS the "Availability" time estimate given in the product price section at the top of the page.

Orders from 6pm for example wouldn't process that day so delivery estimate would be 4 days. Also please note that we do not dispatch on the weekend and do not class these as working days.

    FAQ

    Why is next day delivery not available?

    As the site gets bigger it will be but we don't have sufficient volume to offer this currently.

    Can I collect from your warehouse?

    No sorry. We are internet trading only, previously we did have a bookshop where this was possible.

    How can I enter a coupon code?

    On the cart page under the "Use A Coupon" tab.

    Do you guarantee delivery by a particular date?

    No we don't sorry - we ship to over 100 countries through many different carriers and cannot offer a guarantee that your order will arrive within a particular timeframe.

    Can I order by phone?

    Sorry this isn't available for smaller orders (under £250), the costs of telephone staff don't cover the extra sales generated.

    Do you have fly fishing by JR Hartley?

    Sorry out of stock - if it's not for sale on the site we don't have it. We may add the ability to pre-order titles in the future.

    Are all items held in stock?

    Not all - we have over £900,000 of stock in our warehouse but would need tens of millions of pounds worth of inventory to have just 1 copy of everything for sale on the site. We place daily orders with in excess of 100 publishers and wholesalers who typically deliver into us next day. Also please note if placing a larger order the delivery time frame may slightly increase due to the need to possibly source titles from multiple suppliers. Please note this is the same model used by nearly all online booksellers.

    I'm pleased with your service and want to leave a review of your site?

    Please if you are so inclined leave a review on Google. We seem to have picked up 6 bad reviews and just 4 good ones (from over 170k orders under the booksplease name). Hardly anyone leaves a review for us on there but this is the first thing you see googling our name so we rely on happy customers helping us out.

    I've never ordered off you is it safe?

    It's safe & all will be ok - you may have ordered from us before under our previous selling name "Aphrohead" - we have processed around 18,000,000 orders since the companies formation in 2005. We are located in Southport, UK
