This is an Indispensible book to help you face the blathering advertisements that are telling you how to make your life better every day. The book is comprised of several short essays written by some of the foremost spiritual thinkers of our day such as Thich Nhat Hanh and the Dalai Lama... and many more. Great reference book to bring you some perspective. ( )
