Laugh aloud even as you look at life anew with these stories from the bestselling author of Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung?

In 108 brief stories with titles like "The Bad Elephant," "Girlfriend Power," and "The Happiness License," Ajahn Brahm offers up more timeless wisdom that will speak to people from all walks of life. Drawing from his own experiences, stories shared by his students, and old chestnuts that he delivers with a fresh twist, Ajahn Brahm shows he knows his way around the humorous parable, delighting even as he surprises us with unexpected depth and inspiration.

Reviews:

"I love a book that I can open randomly to any page and know Iíll find a valuable teaching. This describes the delightful new book Donít Worry Be Grumpy. With every story, the irrepressible Ajahn Brahm gently challenges our conventional views, giving us a fresh perspective imbued with wisdom and compassion."
ó Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick

"If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a good metaphorical story is worth that many more. Ajahn Brahmís latest collection of stories are funny, endearing, and, of course, infused with wisdom."
ó Arnie Kozak, author of Wild Chickens and Petty Tyrants: 108 Metaphors for Mindfulness

"In irreverent and inescapably humorous ways, Ajahn Brahm's Don't Worry, Be Grumpy collection of stories become unforgettable learning experiences."
ó Jean Smith, author of Life Is Spiritual Practice

About the Author:

After pursuing a degree in theoretical physics from Cambridge University, Ajahn Brahm, born in London as Peter Betts, headed off to a forest monastery in Thailand, where he studied under the famed meditation master Ajahn Chah for nine years starting in the mid 1970s. A Buddhist monk for over thirty years, he is now the abbot and spiritual director of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia in Perth, and he is in demand worldwide both as a spiritual teacher and as a popular speaker. He is the author of Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung?, The Art of Disappearing, and Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond.
