    Buddhist philosophy tells us that all personal unhappiness and interpersonal conflict lie in the "three poisons": craving, anger, and delusion. With new high-tech devices, scientists can peer inside the brain centers that calm the inner storms of rage and fear. They also can demonstrate that awareness-training strategies such as meditation strengthen emotional stability - and greatly enhance our positive moods.

    "Not Impressed, pretty dry"
    Overall

    This book seemed more like a report. Actually I think it was meant to be a report instead of conveying the meaning behind the word as in other books I've been through that have included the Dalai Lama.

    Because of the report type writing, I felt that this was pretty dry. I felt like this was written by a college student reporting on their field trip than an experienced author. I was hoping to be emerged into the teachings of the Dalai Lama. I went through this after reading "The Art of Happiness" which I though was very good. Was a bit disappointed with this one, but that will not stop me from getting "How to Practice" this month.
