Professional reviews

"The Dalai Lama and psychiatrist Howard C. Cutler present brief, easy-to-apply tips for everyday life that combine Buddhist wisdom and meditation with Western psychology (and even a touch of science). The aim is to overcome obstacles such as depression, anxiety, anger, jealousy, and other negative behaviors that rob us of happiness. Narrators Dion Graham and Linda Emond alternate chapters after Dr. Cutler presents the introduction. Both narrators, particularly Graham, have soothing voices that perfectly enhance the book's message. Interspersed with the advice are ancient and modern anecdotes such as the story of the hotel housekeepers who lined up daily simply to watch the Dalai Lama walk by. S.G.B.
