Publisher's Summary

The Web site Tiny Buddha began as a quote-a-day Twitter account, @tinybuddha, in 2008. Lori Deschene's daily wisdom posts about mindfulness, nonattachment, and happiness became so popular that she now has more than 200,000 Twitter followers who share quotes and stories about inspiration in their daily lives.

Deschene asked her Twitter followers to contribute their thoughts and perspectives on the difficult questions that influence how we live our everyday lives: thoughts about the meaning of life, pain, happiness, fate, and more.

Tiny Buddha, Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions is a combination of the amazing responses that she received along with her own insightful essays, and insights from wise teachers around the world and throughout time. Deschene explores how these issues have played out in her own life and offers action-oriented suggestions to help people empower themselves, even in a world with so much uncertainty. The result is a guide that helps listeners discover the endless possibilities for a life lived mindfully in the present and connected to others.

    "Just the right amount of knowledge.."

    Lori, has a way of weaving her story and the enlightenment of others from her twitter account that makes for encouragement and the feeling of connection we all must have.

    "Amazing and Awesome!!"

    Lori Deschene gets it! I have spent countless dollars and time reading personal development books. But in the first two chapters I realized Lori gets me and gets it! Her words of wisdom are invaluable!

    Story
    "The website is worth it. This book isn't."

    Struggled to get into it and gave up before half way through it. It is a rare day when I put down a book, but I just couldn't be bothered with this one. The website is the opposite story. It is useful, sweet, and well done. Save your money and just follow Tiny Budda online and skip the terrible book.
