Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happiness Ricard is clear and direct in his explanation of what happiness is, and how to allow it to flourish in our lives. He is neither sentimental nor patronizing. He does an excellent job laying out the wisdom he has gained from his long time study with great masters. This is a book worthy of multiple reads. It has been a great tool for me to help expose the negative mental patterns which keep happiness away and to move toward a much happier life. Very simple, yet very profound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read but not understood...yet. This book gives you so much to consider. It is not ethereal or deep, there is no chanting, weird rituals or 1-800 numbers. I found myself looking forward and backwards across my life. All the people involved play a part and perhaps this is my catalyst for the next steps.
