APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Originally published in 1989, this international bestseller sprung from an ongoing collaboration between Tenzin Gyatso (better known as the Dalai Lama) and American psychiatrist Howard Cutler. As Cutler presses the Nobel Peace Prize–winning Tibetan leader for the secrets to his perennially cheerful and optimistic disposition, he unveils the tenets of Buddhism in a way that’s accessible to everyone—and relevant to everyday encounters and emotions.
