This book is great, helpful and very deep. It is amazing how the author have such insight about the human suffering, or better, how he can translate the Buddha teachings to our twenty first century life being so clear and precise. But don't be foolish, it is not a simple book in the way that the teachings can be assimilated very easily. It is so intense that it needs to be read many times in order to be assimilated at least to the minimum. Also, at the end, it has a good number of suggestions of further reading and websites that are very helpful as well. It is the best book I read in a long time that talks so clear about the human condition.

I am a Shin Buddhist and I have been studying the four truths for sometime and I have been going through some hard patches in my life that are continuing to date. Some chapters in this book showed me how I act to the tee when I don't get what I want. I have given this book to four of my friends already. I ready this book everytime things get hard to deal with. I will use it for the rest of my life

Why do you suffer? Is there a purpose to your pain? These questions come up for all of us at some time, as they did for the Buddha 2,500 years ago. In his wisdom, he developed a way through suffering, which he called the Four Noble Truths, and he left us the Twelve Insights to guide us through them. Using examples from his own life and those of his students, and the step-by-step process of the Twelve Insights, Phillip Moffitt shows us how we can walk through our suffering to a path of joy. First we learn to embrace suffering through the First Noble Truth. In the Second Noble Truth, we learn there is a way to stop clinging. The Third Noble Truth shows us cessation of suffering is possible. And the Fourth Noble Truth offers us the Noble Eightfold Path to happiness. Pain and suffering come to all of us, and at times can feel overwhelming. But Moffitt gives us clear and compelling reasons to believe that these Twelve Insights are the way to handle suffering and create a life filled with joy. Though at times the path won¿t be easy, there is hope that we can learn to live with our pain and still enjoy our dance with life. A profoundly spiritual book, Dancing With Life is a must-read for all those who want to find deeper meaning in life. Reviewer: Alice Berger, Bergers Book Reviews
