Review:

This book is an ideal companion... written with impeccable qualifications and clarity. --Going Beyond

Geshe Kelsang has a unique gift for simultaneously addressing everyday difficulties - particularly in his useful and inspiring elucidation of how to control anger and practice patience - and bringing into focus the spiritual dimension in which they reverberate. --Booklist

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso both delights in and has a profound insight into the entire range of the teachings of Buddha. Difficult technical points are rendered into pleasantly readable prose, and the text as a whole is both absorbing and illuminating. --Tibetan Review
