This review is from: The Lost Art of Compassion: Discovering the Practice of Happiness in the Meeting of Buddhism and Psychology (Paperback)
At over 280 pages, Dr Ladner has done well to create an accessible and insightful piece that covers compassion from all angles. His obvious experience of Tibetan Buddhism is evident, and has no doubt helped him to juxtapose Western and Buddhist psychology almost seamlessly. Interspersed with a number of suggested meditations, this is probably one of the best non-Buddhist reads on compassion I have encountered. I managed to read this in a few days, but it's one of those books I know I will be referring back to again and again. No matter whether you are a practicing Buddhist, psychologist/counsellor, or just someone wishing to lead a more fulfilling life, you could do infinitely worse than reading this book.
