What is wisdom? Who is wise? Can wisdom be developed? These are the questions Horner sets out to answer, from a Buddhist perspective. The author sets forth 12 pillars of wisdom that are easily accessed and applied, not only to Buddhism but life in general. Spoiler alert; with proper intent and focused attention, wisdom can be developed.

Horner takes us on a deep divide into each of the 12 elements that make up the building blocks of wisdom; communication, perspective, values, humility, learning, life events, impermanence, compassion, bias, patience and concentration, Theory of Mind and emotional stability.
