First, we learn ways to move beyond our self-defeating tendency to put others into rigid categories. We discover how to create and maintain a positive attitude toward those around us. By reflecting on the kindness that close friends have shown us we learn to reciprocate and help other people achieve their own long-term goals. And in seeking the well-being of others, we foster compassion, the all-encompassing face of love.
In this accessible and insightful audiobook, His Holiness the Dalai Lama helps us to open our hearts and minds to the experience of unlimited love, transforming every relationship in our lives and guiding us ever closer to wisdom and enlightenment.

"This is a generous and sensible road map to not-so-random acts of kindness." (Publishers Weekly)
"Whom are you going to call on when you need to learn inner calmness, universal love, and forgiveness? For some, it's the Dalai Lama. His Holiness offers a simple seven-step plan from which most listeners can glean usable techniques slowly, peacefully, progressively....narrator/translator Jeffrey Hopkins conveys the information in just that fashion."

As most books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, this addresses exclusively the privileged. It also contains the statement that all suffering is self-inflicted. This is an outrageous insult of a great number of human beings who suffer due to the misdeeds of others.
If I would not know that this book is written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who is the reincarnation of the previous Dalai Lama (and so on), I would be tempted to think this book is the sorry effort of a privileged person of average intelligence and about average capacity for compassion.
