Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing a new Heather's Pick for January: The Lucky Years by David B. Agus, M.D.

For many Canadians, January marks not only the start of a new year, but the beginning of a healthier life. In The Lucky Years, Dr. David B. Agus unveils the brave new world of medicine, one in which we can take control of our health like never before.

In his first bestseller, The End of Illness, David Agus revealed how to add vibrant years to your life by knowing the real facts of health. In this book, he builds on that theme by showing why this is the luckiest time yet to be alive. In this new golden age of advanced medicine, people are more able than ever to take full advantage of the power of technology to customize their care. Only those who know how to access and adapt to these breakthroughs—without being distracted by hyped ideas and bad medicine—will benefit. Imagine being able to get fit and lose weight without dieting, train your immune system to fight cancer, edit your DNA to avoid a certain fate, erase the risk of a heart attack, reverse aging, and know exactly which drugs will optimize health with zero side effects.

That's the picture of the future that you can enter starting today. Welcome to The Lucky Years.



Indigo's Staff Picks program is the perfect place to start looking for your next favourite book. Each month we choose the book that Indigo employees at home office and in stores love the most, and what we think our customers will love. Click here to learn more about Indigo's Staff Pick of the Month program.

January's Staff Pick of the Month is Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed – the same author behind the best-selling memoir Wild. Published just months after Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things is another tell-all of sorts – only in this book, Strayed shares the best pieces from the advice column she wrote for TheRumpus.net while she was still an unknown author, called "Dear Sugar." Strayed wrote the column anonymously for over two years, and only revealed she was Sugar shortly before this collection was published.  

In Tiny Beautiful Things, Strayed combines advice with personal anecdotes to provide raw, honest guidance for readers. Rich with humor, insight, compassion—and absolute honesty—this book is a balm for everything life throws our way.



The #IndigoBookClub calls on booklovers from all over the globe to take part in a monthly Twitter party to discuss great reads in 140 characters or less.

This month's #IndigoBookClub title is Tiny Beautiful Things by the bestselling author of Wild, Cheryl Strayed.

Stay tuned to @chaptersindigo to find out the date and time of this month's Twitter party, and be sure to use #IndigoBookClub to take part!
