THE BOOK OF JOY Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

by | Read by Douglas Abrams, Francois Chau, Peter Francis James

Personal Growth • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, interviewed by Douglas Abrams, give enlightening advice on how to achieve joy even during difficult times. Douglas Abrams is both an excellent author and interviewer who knows how to present a question most effectively and how to relay the answers of these widely respected spiritual leaders clearly and informatively. All three voices are differentiated beautifully, with Francois Chau channeling the Dalai Lama's peacefulness and Peter Francis James providing a judicious tone to represent Desmond Tutu. These two Nobel Prize winners teach joy by sharing their own journeys and practices. The narration makes listeners feel like they're in the same room as these wise men, welcomed and at peace. The pillars of joy are clearly outlined and explained. D.Z. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
