    Nice book about what we have to do in our near future to make the world a better place, for us and for our children Starting from the fact that we do not have to worry only for our kids but for all the children of the world, the Dalai Lama talks about his way of being in the world, a sort of Tibetan Mindfulness I can say, and then he starts to speak with Goleman about emotions, the famous Kidness revolution and the even famous book by Thomas Piketty about capitalism and all the way it fails to change something for the better Then it starts a long discussion about the way economy should change and try to include the wellness for the most of the people and not only for people who are already getting richer and richer, compassion is a very important word in this part of the book, because it helps the other and also us, giving a new meaning to our life Considering our planet comes after and it shows how important it is not to exploit our resources, because as far as we know, there is not another planet waiting for us.Bel libro, riguarda tutto quello che dovremmo fare in un futuro decisamente prossimo, per rendere il mondo un posto migliore, sia per noi che per i nostri figli ...

    A wonderful book I pretty much love everything I read about, or by The Dalai Lama This book talks about how we must take action as individuals to create a better world, even though we may not see the real changes in our lifetime Every little bit of good we do adds up and eventually this world can be a compassionate place Don t feel that the world s problems are too big to be fixed ...

    Inspirational and thought provoking book which deserves five stars This book has been the most inspirational and thought provoking book I have ever read to date.Daniel Goleman, I have to admit, I don t really know much about this author, but the way he has written this book is simply magical You get to see the Dalai Lama s true personality and character through Goleman s eyes and words This is not a religious or spiritual book by any means, though a lot of people appear to have put this book in those pigeon holes already A Force For Good is a collection of keen observations and conversations that have taken place between the Dalai Lama and a number of different people, all from different backgrounds Most of these conversations have occurred at various scientific meetings and other events around the world Goleman has recorded details and opinions from others to paint a clear and well rounded picture of the Dalai Lama The way in which this book has been written is extremely easy to follow, as much as the science and facts are all there, Goleman has done it in such a way where it doesn t bombard you with too much information It doesn t read like a biography either, it feels like a gentle journey and a close friend conversing with...

    I won this book in a giveaway by Bloomsbury publishers and was most grateful I ve never read anything on the Dalai Lama but whatever I ve heard or picked up regarding his teachings philosophy on life resonated strongly with my own spiritual beliefs as a Muslim and as a Muslim who has spent some time studying the spiritual teachings of Mawlana Rumi I was interested to read then, this book.It s a good book especially for someone who is newly considering broadening their horizons beyond the material and the rat race that life can become, with or without religion I liked that about this book, it gives all the teachings of all religions be kind, be truthful be compassionate, live in the moment but plant seeds for tomorrow etc etc I liked how the science behind the practices is also explained Again I was familiar with some of these things as a psychotherapist but it was interesting to see spirituality and science combine Certainly in my experience the two are not mutually exclusive The only reason why I knocked two stars off is that a the practises were not new to me and as such although I got a new perspective or a reminder, I was expecting I appreciat...
