About the Author

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibet. Today, he lives in exile in Northern India and works tirelessly on behalf of the Tibetan people, as well as travelling the world to give spiritual teachings to sell-out audiences. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.


The Dalai Lama's latest publication, with his former interpreter Hopkins (Tibetan & Buddhist studies, emeritus, Univ. of Virginia), does not dwell on his life or experience, as some of his more popular recent titles have done; nor does it address specifically Buddhist concerns or spirituality. Rather, the Dalai Lama works here from the Buddhist places (awareness, non-attachment) to speak to general readers about habits that make for unhappiness (anger, for one) and the attitudes that increase contentment. -VERDICT Light on politics and even lighter on the more abstruse points of Tibetan Buddhism, this is a fine and accessible book for the everyday reader; excellent for the self-help market.
