Product Description

Amazon Review

For their second collaboration, The Art of Happiness at Work, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and coauthor Howard C Cutler, MD chose a subject that affects millions of people around the world. In this very readable, useful book, the authors attempt to discover the following: "Where does work fit in to our overall quest for happiness?" and "To what degree does work satisfaction affect our overall life satisfaction and happiness?"

The Art of Happiness at Work is a modern-day Socratic dialogue in which Cutler asks the Dalai Lama about the difficulties and rewards we might encounter in the workplace. The authors explore issues such as work and identity, making money, the Buddhist concept of "right livelihood", and transforming dissatisfaction at work. The discussion appears simple, if not obvious, at first, but upon closer scrutiny, the Dalai Lama's profound wisdom and sensitivity emerges. For the Dalai Lama, basic human values such as kindness, tolerance, compassion, honesty and forgiveness are the source of human happiness. Throughout the book, he illustrates with clear examples how bringing those qualities to bear on work-related challenges can help us tolerate or overcome even the thorniest situations. Recognising that not all problems can be solved, the Dalai Lama provides very sound advice. The authors urge balance and self-awareness and wisely state, "No matter how satisfying our work is, it is a mistake to rely on work as our only source of satisfaction". --Silvana Tropea, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

'If you're dissatisfied at work, or are finding it hard to understand your true calling, this book is for you... Cutler puts into practice the basic principles of the Dalai Lama that can be applied in all areas of your life. THE ART OF HAPPINESS AT WORK is very readable'. (Be Unlimited)

This is the first book i've read that was written by HH the Dalai Lama and I must say its a very good book.

I've been a bit stressed out at work lately for one reason or another and reading this book really put my problems into perspective.

Although the book is written by a prominant figure in Tibetan Buddhism don't let that fool you into thinking the whole book is full of high-brow Buddhist philosophies, because it isn't.

The advice contained in the book is the usual common-sense, witty and profound style often found in the Dalai Lamas books. Unfortunately theres an American psychologist interviewing the Dalai Lama throughout the book and who often makes his own observations which aren't anywhere near as on-the-mark as the Dalai Lama and quite unnessasary but I can forgive the books faults simply because the Dalai Lama really does hit the nail on the head every time. He'll be asked a hypothetical question about why so-and-so is unhappy at work and he'll just give a straightforward answer and you'll think 'Of course! Why didn't I see that before!'

All in all, excellent practical advice. If you have concerns or worries about your career or working life, this book will put your mind at ease

Fantastic book! As was the first in this series, The Art of Happiness - A Handbook For Living. I would recommend this series of books to anyone. The benefits of what they teach are incalculable. Get a whole new outlook on the world and realise what really matters and what doesn't. A must read series!!

I read the original book "The Art of Happiness" many years ago and it was interesting, taught me a lot and has been a great help over some recent years of tragedy.

I bought this book as I am interested in "The Work" aspect of happiness. To be fair the structure of the book can be a bit tedious and you need to be motivated to keep going. However, it is interesting some research that Cutler has used on positive psychology and how to handle work as part of your life.

So, if you are genuinely interested in being happier at work, and you are willing to makes changes to your life, then it is worth reading. You may find buying the original book first.The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living

If you are looking for excitement or dynamic writing them you need to look elsewhere.

By Crazy Foo on 2 Aug. 2008
Format: Paperback
not as good as the first book: "The Art Of Happiness", but does cover many topics the first book doesn't. Seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel a little bit, should probably buy "The Art Of Happiness" first if your interested, if u already got it then this is like a good expansion of the first. Still an awesome book, very common sense, so usefull for everyone, not a book just for buddhists or meditators etc. But useful for buddhists because the dalai lama's so down to earth compared to some of the rather extreme teachings out there which seem unrealistic for a modern life.

I can't quite believe I have never reviewed this.

It is such a good book and underpins so much of what we now know about the way work is evolving.

Written as dialogue, it is never dry - and always inspiring.
