Weaving together the accumulated wisdom of his two worlds - Buddhism and Western psychotherapy - Mark Epstein shows how "the happiness that we seek depends on our ability to balance the ego's need to do with our inherent capacity to be." He encourages us to relax the ever-vigilant mind in order to experience the freedom that comes only from relinquishing control.

This book is very helpful for anyone trying to find their way in this world. I’ve always found the Buddhist perspective enlightening and everyone could benefit from a psychiatrists advise.
