by | Read by Karen Armstrong

Philosophy & Religion • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Armstrong outlines 12 compassionate steps to live by to make our lives more meaningful and selfless. Her delivery is boldly profound, making it obvious that her knowledge on the subject of compassion is deep, and her eloquent performance is enhanced by a refined British accent. It’s no surprise that Armstrong was awarded the TED Prize for her theories, after which she plunged straight away into working on the Charter for Compassion, a project resulting in a formula to make the world a better place. Armstrong proudly describes how contributors to the charter include influencers from the Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu religions. Her insights and broad research provides listeners with diverse viewpoints from both ancient philosophers and modern leaders, resulting in valuable life lessons. Armstrong’s passionate and intelligent delivery convinces listeners that there’s a better way to live and that compassion is the key.
