A wonderful companion book to the Dalai Lama's "Transforming the Mind." I keep this little book (be prepared: it's only about 4" square!) on my computer at work and refer to it in times of stress (about every half hour).
"The Book of Transformation" has actually taken the most important concepts of "Transforming the Mind" and put them here. I think it's a great idea, especially if you are like me and enjoy going back and re-reading certain sections.
I'd recommend reading "Transforming the Mind" first, then keeping this little book with you at all times! It will constantly remind you that generating compassion for all living beings is a wonderful way to bring true joy into your own life, as well as spreading joy everywhere you go. The world could learn a lot from this Nobel Peace Price recipient.
