The Art of Happiness: Book Review

I read the book and I feel blessed after reading the contents as described by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.

The content of the book is wonderful as brought out by Howard C. Cutler. The book describes about getting happiness and how one can achieve the same. The book also talks as about ways to overcome loneliness.

It also tells about one’s thoughts on how one can get happy thoughts during one’s illness. The whole idea circles around being compassion and empathy. There are times, when my practical experience in leading life differs from what needs to be followed as per the book. I sometimes feel that in life too much compassion for a family person is seen as a sign of weakness.

Day in and day out, if we always show compassion in our daily works and areas which need a little bit of strictness, it may lead, not getting the desired results.

Maybe I need to understand the book better and I enjoyed reading the book but have my own personal differences in the thoughts shared by Mr. Howard C. Cutler. I thank Almighty that through the writings of Mr. Howard, I can hear the beautiful sayings of His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.

If I have to rate the book on 10 Stars and 10 being the highest, I will give the book 8 Stars.
