內容簡介

當你真心渴求, 
這個世界必定會對你有所回應! 

什麼魔法能夠幫助你心想事成,讓一位貧困少年成為史丹佛大學神經外科名醫? 

紐約時報話題暢銷書!Amazon讀者直逼★★★★★非看不可最高評價! 

達賴喇嘛、一行禪師、華頓商學院教授亞當.格蘭特、《哈芬登郵報》創辦人雅莉安娜.哈芬登、《EQ》作者丹尼爾.高曼、《西藏生死書》作者索甲仁波切等超過30位各界名人一致誠心推薦! 

心是態度,也是力量;
心在想什麼,你就必然會成為什麼!
成功或失敗、沮喪或滿足……
扭轉命運的關鍵其實就掌握在你自己手中!

詹姆斯‧多堤醫師是舉世聞名的神經外科權威,但沒有人知道他曾有段灰暗的童年。他出身貧窮,父親酗酒,母親中風癱瘓,未來毫無希望可言,然而十二歲那年夏天,他意外走進一間魔術商店,學會露絲奶奶教給他的「魔法」後,他的人生就此起了翻天覆地的變化。 

從改善家計到順利申請上醫學院,露絲奶奶的魔法讓詹姆斯的願望一一成真,更搖身一變成為史丹佛大學的明星級醫師,意氣風發,名利雙收,但他卻因為一次投資失利,一夕之間又失去了一切。他回想起露絲奶奶的叮嚀,才驚覺自己犯了天大的錯! 

「魔法」的確可以讓人心想事成,但許下什麼願望才是關鍵!他雖然藉著魔法扭轉人生,卻徹底忘了為人奉獻才是他的初心。他忽視了露絲最重要的教導,也因此嘗到了苦果。 

於是,詹姆斯決心重返醫界,從過去每一個錯誤的選擇,重新審視自己的人生。他將十件最重要的事做成「心的字母表」,當作每一天生活的目標。他也體悟到,無論許下什麼願望,金錢與名利並不能為心靈帶來滿足,只有無私的付出才能帶來真正的喜悅。 

如今,詹姆斯不僅是一位名醫和慈善企業家,並且致力於透過科學研究,用慈悲的力量豐富他人的生命。究竟,露絲奶奶教他的「魔法」是什麼?為什麼如此神奇?詹姆斯曾答應露絲要將她的「魔法」傳授給其他人,幫助他們改變人生,而這本書就是他對這個承諾的實現!


The award-winning New York Times bestseller about the extraordinary things that can happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart
 
Growing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart.
 
Doty would go on to put Ruth’s practices to work with extraordinary results—power and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruth’s most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous results—until he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.
