Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit down with the Dalai Lama and really press him about life's persistent questions? Why are so many people unhappy? How can I abjure loneliness? How can we reduce conflict? Is romantic love true love? Why do we suffer? How should we deal with unfairness and anger? How do you handle the death of a loved one? These are the conundrums that psychiatrist Howard Cutler poses to the Dalai Lama during an extended period of interviews in The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living. At first, the Dalai Lama's answers seem simplistic, like a surface reading of Robert Fulghum: ask yourself if you really need something; our enemies can be our teachers; compassion brings peace of mind. Cutler pushes: but some people do seem happy with lots of possessions; but "suffering is life" is so pessimistic; but going to extremes provides the zest in life; but what if I don't believe in karma? As the Dalai Lama's responses become more involved, a coherent philosophy takes shape. Cutler then develops the Dalai Lama's answers in the context of scientific studies and cases from his own practice, substantiating and elaborating on what he finds to be a revolutionary psychology. Like any art, the art of happiness requires study and practice--and the talent for it, the Dalai Lama assures us, is in our nature. --Brian Bruya

Always one to be skeptical of these kinds of collaborative book efforts, I think it's important to point out that 'The Art of Happiness' was written not by the Dalai Lama, but by Howard C. Cutler, a psychiatrist.
Dr. Cutler weaves together exerpts from numerous conversations with the Dalai Lama spanning many years, and from public talks given throughout Arizona in 1993. The result is a treatise on a topic of widespread importance: happiness (or the lack thereof). If it's Buddhist wisdom you seek, I highly recommend you read "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom" by Taro Gold.

"The Art Of Happiness," is a very good book. I didn't appreciate the beauty, and genius behind the thinking of this book, until after I had finished it. While reading, I was most interested, and thought it was very good, but after I had finished the whole thing, I was in a better position to integrate all of the ideas, and see that not only was the book set on a nice premise, but fulfilled its promise - It sets out a clear, achievable, and loving way for people to attain what has become somewhat of a myth to some people: true happiness. I would recommend people read this book at least twice, because there are so many ideas that are portrayed, that they should be absorbed fully. The book has the potential to be a nice first step for many people, myself included. It presents very deep, although sometimes deceptively simple ideas, and the book itself motivates people to be the best they can be. If someone fully integrates the ideas presented into their life, I imagine they would be among a very special few.
The book's form leaves a little to be desired, however. Although mostly effective, the narrative style was sometimes tiresome, it made the flow of the book seem a bit choppy at times, and the reader is subject to some of Cutler's whims, which results in disjoined ideas, and a chapter starting on one premise, and ending on another. That said, the narrative effect is often very effective, and all in all, makes the reader feel more connected with his Holiness.
I was very surprised while reading some of the other reviews of this book.

I disagree with the review from the reader from Oxford. This book is not meant to be a collection of buddhist philosophy obviously there are books written for that. This book written by Dr Cutler is easy to read and is especially useful for people who have no experience of buddhism as it is written from a Western viewpoint and gives examples readers can relate to. It is a superb book which helps people to work out their priorities and cuts to the core regarding the roots of suffering and seeds of happiness. I recommend it to anyone interested in being a happier person be they a buddhist or not!

I have spent much of the last two years completely enveloping myself in study of Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Culture. I was a little unsure at first of how I would feel about His Holiness' words being filtered through a psychologist. In the end, I was delighted with the outcome of the book. The Dalai Lama feels it is so important to cross cultural boundaries and promote understanding and peace between cultures and religions. I believe this book does just what the Dalai Lama strives to do. It opens a window into Tibetan Buddhism and Culture and finds a way to cross the boundary into Western skeptical society. I loved that Cutler was so honest about his original views about some of the things the Dalai Lama had to say and how seeing those ideals put into practice, and actually finding psychological study to corroborate these practices, changed his view of what might be considered sentimental idealism. It's a perfect way to bring Tibetan Buddhism out of the esoteric and into the mainstream.

Very inspiring book, can't stop reading! Hapiness is a choice everybody can make in their minds. It's not all about money,cars and success. Sometimes the little things in life are the most important ones. Even in hard stages of life you can be happy, just train your mind.

This Buddhist leader and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize brings to a general audience his teachings of the Buddha Nature, which is the state of mind, present in all human beings, that is completely untainted by negative emotions and thoughts. He teaches the basis of being happy is to gain access to the warm and compassionate states of mind, that we all possess the potential for compassion, and our basic nature is gentleness.
Often during his interviews, the Dalai Lama would break into a robust laugh, revealing his marvelous and gentle sense of humor. This book brings about a meeting of psychology and Buddhism, and shows us a way to defeat ordinary depression, anger, and anxiety. The Art of Happiness crosses the boundaries of all religious traditions to help readers with difficulties common to all of us, with discussions based on 25 centuries of Buddhist meditations. When I finished reading this book, I felt a strong longing to someday meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and until then, look at everything I could find on television and on the Internet about the author. (If you have a chance, watch CNN's documentary, "The Dalai Lama: At Home in Exile" which originally aired August 8, 1999, 9:00 PM E.T.)
