In a typically smooth production, pioneer audio producer Daniel Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence, mines the depths of the Dalai Lama's understanding of human emotions and asks how humanity might counter the escalating problem of destructive emotions. This intelligent abridgment loses none of the author's elegant thinking, especially as read by Ed Levin, who really understands this material. The star of this audio, however, is the Dalai Lama, whose thinking spans many disciplines and encompasses the most relevant and powerful ideas today about emotional functioning. The program is a fascinating example of how a thoughtful journalist can bring important ideas to the public's attention and hold their interest in the material. T.W.
