With his pleasing voice tone and sensitivity to the author's intentions, Fred Sanders's gentle but compelling performance shows how an actor's skill can make a complex book a joy to hear. His lack of self-consciousness is perfect for the author's humble and personable writing. Wright is captivated by Buddhism's focus on meditation, disengagement from attachments, and honesty about pain and disappointment. His lively anecdotes and research summaries explain how brain systems that helped humans evolve can distort thinking about our appetites and make us shortsighted. More than a testimonial for Buddhist practices, this is an astute elaboration of the tradition's thinking on rewiring our brains to combat the triggers for mayhem that modern life throws at us every day.
