Summary

Following the massive success of The Art of Happiness, the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler bring their best-selling message to our working lives.

Of the many Dalai Lama titles on sale, The Art of Happiness - written with Western psychiatrist Howard Cutler - is by far the biggest best seller of them all. A huge international success, it has sold over two million copies worldwide, with nearly 300,000 of these in the UK alone. Now, this inspirational new book brings the successful East-meets-West pairing together again to provide a practical application of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual values to the world of work.

In this wise and practical book, the Dalai Lama shows us how to place our working lives into the context of our lives as a whole. Rather than striving to find a role which suits us, we should allow our work to arise naturally from who we are - and what is most important to us. From here we reach a pathway that can lead us to true life fulfilment and purpose.

Good read for those seeking perspective at work

Interesting meditation on important questions concerning happiness in the workplace - told in the form of conversations between the Dalai Lama and the author.

Well structured and worth the investment for anyone seeking balance, meaning or happiness in their daily work lives. A thoughtful and enjoyable read.
