Publisher's Summary

Sigmund Freud once said that the best outcome that psychotherapy can offer is a return to "common unhappiness". But what about those of us with higher aspirations? Where do we find the tools we need to heal - and then go further - to create a life of uncommon and authentic happiness?

The answer, teaches Mark Epstein, may lie in the insights of one of the world's greatest psychologists - the Buddha. What the Buddha Felt uncovers a quiet revolution occurring in the West today: the merging of modern psychotherapy and ancient Buddhist meditation techniques to help us face even the most challenging emotional obstacles.

great read

Ended so abruptly, fantastic book otherwise. Excellent content, easy to follow and expanding in both psychotherapy and Buddhism.
