Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

In this coherent abridgment, Bennett-Goleman quietly explains that we experience the world and feel much of what we feel because of what's in our mind. Consciously or unconsciously, we develop mental patterns or "schemas" that frame our experiences and direct our behavior. This psychological theory promotes conscious manipulation of one's thoughts and interpretations--what the author adds, in particular, is the more spiritual Buddhist teaching that emptying the mind gives one a better perspective on these mental habits. Delivered in Bennett-Goleman's own mature and compassionate voice, these ideas should appeal to a broad range of people seeking emotional understanding and satisfaction. T.W.
