Review

This book is a very interesting book. I have my own religion but what Dalai Lama’s vision doesn’t confused me or conflict mine but helping me to rethink who I am and what I should be.

It is an cheerful read and help me to understand myself a bit more, especially on the emotional control and economics chapters.

I recommend this book because we shouldn’t only focusing on ourselves but also others; not only technical knowledge but also ethical knowledge.
