    Wise Advice

    How can we be happy in today's materialistic, competitive world? Not by amassing more wealth and possessions, according to the Dalai Lama. He recommends that we focus on internal, spiritual issues: we need to recognize our connectedness with all human beings, learn to restrain anger and other negative thoughts and emotions, and develop patience and compassion for others. For the way to be happy is by being a good, ethical person. This is useful advice that can help anyone who takes it seriously. But self-change is difficult; considerable effort is required. Getting ahead by pulling other people down is widely accepted in our society, and I'm afraid those who most need the Dalai Lama's advice may be the least likely to read this book and follow his teachings.

    Love and compassion

    Teaches about life and how we should treat others. Slow moving, yet very emotional. I admire the Dalai Lama for writing this.

    Down to earth

    I found this book very soothing in a sense that in every sentence there is a message of goodness. It is written in a simplistic manner and therefore you can follow easily the message that the Dalai Lama is expressing I recommend this book to anyone who would like to stop and think about peace of mind.
