Book Review: The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by his Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu

There are so many things to love about this book!

  • It’s written by inspirational religious leaders who we get to know and love through their words.
  • It’s fun and touching to observe their tender friendship.
  • It’s about life events that we all can identify with; and rich in wisdom on how to  be joyous in the face of our humanity.
  • It lends itself to reading in short segments.  A chapter at a time is plenty of food for thought for a full day or more.

I bought the book, and having a few chits with AUDIBLE, also downloaded the recording.  Mary and I have listened together and found it very engaging … almost like hearing it spoken by the authors themselves.

Whether reading or listening is your preference, I encourage you not to miss this book.
