Publisher's Summary

A molecular biologist turned Buddhist monk demonstrates how to develop the inner conditions for true happiness. Never has happiness as an emotional and physical state of being been so widely discussed. Matthieu Ricard is one of the most compelling voices on the subject, and one of the few who can bring together the teachings of eastern and western thought. In this accessible new work, Ricard provides a straightforward assessment of how to create true and lasting happiness. He addresses the pursuit of a meaningful life at its most fundamental level - the strengthening of the inner conditions that lead to genuine happiness. Ricard helps readers form new patterns of interaction with themselves and with the larger world, working toward happiness step by step, starting with 20 minutes of daily mind training and meditation.

Inspiring book. Great narrator. Definitively worth listening to. However, stay away from it if you meditation doesn't work for you. This books only answer to developing happiness is meditation.
