Previous winners of the Nautilus Book Awards include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Barbara Kingsolver (selected again in 2013), and Deepak Chopra.
"The Nautilus Book Awards are named for the mollusk whose beautiful, pearl-lined shell contains chambers of increasing size which the sea creature constructs for itself as it grows. The nautilus symbolizes both ancient wisdom and expanding horizons; both the elegance of nature and a continual growth of understanding and awareness."
Hearty thanks to Nautilus Awards for this incredible honor! And congratulations to Springer, my co-editors and chapter contributors!
