Author: Dalai Lama, Paul Ekman.
A spiritual leader heir to a millennial culture and the psychologist who helped define the modern science of emotions compare their thinking, tracing a path for building happiness. A path that starts from a common point: emotions are the basis of all our actions, from the most virtuous to the most evil. They can save our life, or ruin it forever. What are the sources of hatred and compassion? What are destructive emotions and how should they be dealt with? How can you find balance and, ultimately, happiness? By combining the best of their respective traditions in a pleasant dialogue that preserves the atmosphere of meeting and exchanging ideas intact, the Dalai Lama and Paul Ekman offer us a "method" to build our inner well-being.
