Lions Roar : November 2019
REBOOT Leadership and the Art of Growing Up by Jerry Colonna HarperBusiness 2019; 288 pp., $29.99 (cloth) It’s lonely at the top—and sometimes people just can’t figure out why. In Reboot, Jerry Colonna does a deep dive into help- ing us examine how our whole selves play into our decisions as leaders. Colonna himself has a wealth of real-world expe- rience. He helped launch Flatiron, which became one of the most successful, early-stage investment programs in the New York City area, and was a partner with JPMorgan Partners, an arm of JP Morgan Chase, Now he’s the CEO of Reboot. io, an executive coaching and leadership development firm dedicated to the notion that “better humans make better leaders.” Colonna, who’s informed by Buddhism and Jung- ian therapy, gets people to stop and drop into how they really feel, cultivate practical skills for leadership, and ultimately grow—and grow up—in both their personal lives and careers. “There’s a wisdom to being able to discern when the job is done,” writes Colonna. TENDREL A Memoir of New York and the Buddhist Himalayas by Harold Talbott Buddhayana Foundation 2019; 330 pp., $25 (paper) Born into a prominent American family, Harold Talbott (1888–1957) was one of the first Western practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. His memoir, which is told in two parts (“Swanning About” and “In Search of the Nature of the Mind”), shows how Talbott went from a life of privilege in New York to helping interview heads of non-Christian reli- gions in Asia because, as he puts it, “I wrote in a clear hand.” This experience led to Trappist monk Thomas Merton offering to be Talbott’s guide in the Indian Himalayas and to introduce him to the Dalai Lama. Talbott also interacted with novelist Truman Capote, playwrigt Noël Coward, ballet choreographer George Balanchine, and Tibetan lamas such as Dudjom Rinpoche and Chatral Rinpoche. This is a truly original tale of someone who took Merton’s advice to heart: “The church is a very big place; always remember to go your own way in it.” COMEDY SEX GOD By Pete Holmes Harper Wave 2019; 320 pp., $27.99 (cloth) Comedy Sex God isn’t how comedian Pete Holmes describes himself—these are the subjects he thinks about most, explored in this hilarious, thought- ful memoir about breaking out of his worldview as a Christian who learned premarital sex = hell. “But, rules be damned, there’s no group hornier than a bunch of young, repressed Christians,” Holmes writes. As both church and marriage failed Holmes as the bastians of personal definition he once believed them to be, comedy and spiritual contemplation from many perspectives became how he made sense of the world. “Barry Taylor, the road manager for AC/DC, put it this way: ‘God is REVIEWS upaya.org • santa fe, nm 505-986-8518 ext. 112 firstname.lastname@example.org november 14 - 17 Emptiness and Compassion: Shantideva and the Bodhisattva Practice R oan Halifax, J january 3 - february 1 Winter Pr actice Period: Beginner’s Mind, Ancestral Heart R oan Halifax, Wendy J M ozan Palevsky, Kigaku N ossetter february 7 - 16 February Zen Circle: The Way of Haiku: Basho Natalie Goldberg, R oan Halifax, Clark Strand, Sensei Kaz T Calligraphy: Heart of the Brush Sensei Kaz T The resident body is the heart of Upaya’s deep field of practice.
