Summary

Don't miss this rare glimpse into the wisdom of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The Book of Joy tells you how to achieve lasting happiness in a changing world. These two spiritual giants provide true wisdom that can be of great benefit us all.  

It takes the average person 38.5 minutes to read 5,000 words. For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly two percent of your day, I believe the wisdom in this book to be well worth it's value. 

Here's my sales pitch: The writing will not be quite up to the same standard and the formatting is also not done by a professional. If you need a story behind each point to reinforce it, then please, go and buy the original. However, if like me you aren't a fan of the "fluff" that comes along with most books and would much rather skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed, readable way including key takeaways, then I believe this is the book for you. Save yourself time and money. I am only releasing summaries of the books that have made a true positive impact in my life. If you decide to purchase, I truly hope you enjoy and benefit from it.

Valuable Summary

Nicely laid out, with salient points presented in a helpful way. Performance style is just right for capturing the kind spirit that was surely present. Thank you.

A joyless summary of The Book of Joy

The narrator reads this summary of The Book of Joy as though she were completely bored by it all. In fact, I was wondering if it was a real human voice or a digital facsimile. Her uninspired monotone is perfect for listening if you want to fall asleep quickly. Save your money and buy the full version of the book.

Style of narrator

I enjoyed the summary and found it useful. I found the narration unpleasant, the style doesn’t work for me; robot meets sing song, reading is also too fast.
