Book Review: The Art of Happiness: A handbook for living

Title: The Art of Happiness: A handbook for living
Authors: The Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, MD.
Publisher: Riverhead Books (New York)
Audience: Anyone looking at increasing or understanding Happiness
Subject: Happiness in daily life
Summary: Cutler shares his experiences and insights he gathered from the Dalai Lama. So while the book was not penned by the Dalai Lama, it is his insights and guidance into the purpose of life, intimacy, compassion, suffering, and so on, that Cutler shares. While I believe in reading a book through, I often recommend Chapters 8-14 depending on what the struggle is: suffering, pain, anger, anxiety or self-esteem.
