From the New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence comes an inspiring and motivating book based on his decades-long friendship with the Dalai Lama, a book that presents the Dalai Lama’s vision for making the world a better place.
At a time when the planet feels gripped by pessimism, the Dalai Lama offers a vision for how each of us can help make it a better place. People across the world have long admired his wisdom and charisma, but few realize the Dalai Lama’s value as a futurist who thinks globally and over centuries. Asked by the Dalai Lama to bring his thoughts on this topic to the page, Daniel Goleman presents in this book the values that are central to the Dalai Lama’s concept, highlights science that supports the Dalai Lama’s beliefs, and offers instructive anecdotes of people and projects already bringing vision into reality.
