Dan Goleman has done it again. A highly readable book rooted in scientific research - just like his two books on Emotional Intelligence. Compared to other edited Mind and Life Conference books, this one describes the conversation in an extremely lively manner with explanations on Buddhist and scientific concepts presented as footnotes, and as a result making comprehension possible even with some abstract concepts unfamiliar to novice like me.
The enthusiasm shown by Dr. Goleman in the ability of mind over body can be found throughout the book (especially in the chapter presented by him where H.H. the Dalai Lama commented "You've just given me a lot of ammunition). This is probably due to his own knowledge and keen interest in the Eastern psychology and meditation.

I bought and read this book after reading one of Daniel Goleman's other works. I found that 'Healing Emotions' provided an insight into the Dalai Lama's Buddhist thinking without being a book on Buddhism. The humanity of the man is evident from his comments and contribution to the scientific discussion.

This book never strays into 'crackpot' territory but provides much to ponder on the relationship between mind and body.

I am a atheist and pragmatically cynical so not easily impressed by spiritual thinking

If you have an open mind give this book a try

A really interesting read - a conversation between the Dalai Lama, Daniel Goleman and Western scientists interested in meditation, mindfulness etc. A few years out of date but still well worth a read.
