MR Spock's Little Book of Mindfulness: How to Survive in an Illogical World (Hardcover)
Ah, Mr. Spock, everyone's favorite pointy-eared logical Science Officer and First Officer of the Starship Enterprise. Who better in these times of emotional unrest and anxiety to bestow a little Vulcan logic in the form of human mindfulness.
