This review is from: THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU: Going Beyond Self-Hate, A Compassionate Process for Learning to Accept Yourself Exactly as You Are (Paperback)
I've been studying and practicing Buddhism for some 15 years, if I was to have one book this would be it. Why?
Despite the title which is a bit sort of marketing self helpish stuff, it is the most straightforward exposition of the Buddhist teachings on the liberation through applied compassion.
If you want to grasp why self hate is a function of dealing with the day-to-day realities of our lives and how you can turn this to live an open liberated life then, get this book. Oh and I really enjoyed the way its written, `cuase its like a letter from a friend rather than all that dense text stuff that you have to wade through, the book is itself and expression of what it is teaching.
