Happiness

Matthieu Ricard

Yes, the title sounds trite – like a cheap advice, or personal improvement book of the sort that already innundates the market.
This book is the fruit of long and deep reflection, though, and I’d like to call it profound. Much of the t hinking here is inspired by Ricard’s experience as a practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism, but this is not, strictly speaking, a book on Buddhism. Rather, it is a searching exploration of the cause of misery and ill-ease and hatred and envy, coupled with some very considered suggestions for attaining greater peace.
For now, it is atop my gift-giving list.
