Karen Armstrong brings her vast knowledge and her own compassionate nature to the writing of this book. A must read for all who are concerned about where our world is going and what we can do as an individuals to create better lives for ourselves and others.

Excellent, excellent book. Should be required reading for politicians and, well, everyone who wants the global community to survive. She compresses her considerable knowledge of the world's religious beliefs into a very usable guide for living our lives without judging and condemning people who believe differently than we do. It gave me hope for humanity.a

This is a book everyone should read. We need to read it now more than ever. It does not matter if you are Christian or any other religion. It does not matter if you believe in anything. We all need compassion and we need to have compassion for everyone. America would be a better place to live if we could all have compassion.

I've read several of her books and enjoyed every one of them. This book is more of a study book for me to read each chapter (more than once) and try to apply it in daily life and then move to the next chapter. I find it truly a book to change one's life.

For such an intellectual, Karen is able to communicate with passion and covers every possible angle and history of the subject of compassion from a multitude of sources. A great learning tool.

I started reading this over a year ago, as part of a group that was reading one chapter a month and meeting once a month to discuss it. I had to abandon going to the group because of my teaching assignment (I had a night class). So, after going to an excellent talk about mindfulness in the classroom, I finally picked it back up and read it cover to cover. Armstrong suggests doing that, and then going back, chapter by chapter, and not moving on to the next chapter until you have successfully worked on each concept. It is a marvelous work and inspiring. It is not cheesy but a guide to sincere self-reflection. I do not even want to call it "self-help" because that would imply gimmicks and hokey stuff. This work is based on a lifetime of her exploring the world's religions and looking at the commonalities, as well as explaining how our brain work and how our actions affect it and us. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to better themselves.!
