The Man in the Empty Boat by Mark Salzman

Published by OpenRoadMedia
From the author of Iron & Silk comes a moving memoir of love and family, loss and spiritual yearning.

Anxiety has always been part of Mark Salzman's life: He was born into a family as nervous as rabbits, people with extra angst coded into their genes. As a young man he found solace through martial arts, meditation, tai chi, and rigorous writing schedules, but as he approaches midlife, he confronts a year of catastrophe. First, Salzman suffers a crippling case of writer's block; then a sudden family tragedy throws his life into chaos. Overwhelmed by terrifying panic attacks, the author begins a search for equanimity that ultimately leads to an epiphany from a most unexpected source.

The Man in the Empty Boat is a witty and touching account of a skeptic's spiritual quest, a story of one man's journey to find peace as a father, a writer, and an individual.

I've been reading The Man in the Empty Boat the past few days...it's fascinating and I often have to stop and think about what I've just read after especially brilliant paragraphs to digest them. I'll have to read more of Mark Salzman's books when I finish this one.
