His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler. M.D. THE ART OF HAPPINESS: A HANDBOOK FOR LIVING. Riverhead/Penguin, 1998.
Interesting interviews and explanations about how the Dalai Lama sees the world. He seems to believe that humans are basically good and that everyone seeks happiness. He believes that we can train ourselves to increase our own happiness. His basic approach is cognitive, which also appeals to me. The contrast with psychotherapy is also interesting. Glimpses into different worlds, and different ways of seeing the world.
