Dan Woren’s vocal calmness and smooth phrasing create a compelling performance of this thoughtful book, translated from French, about how to become a better human being. Woren’s pacing has the distinctive quality of being slow and determined without sounding labored or overdramatic. The life quest of the author, a long-serving French translator for the Dalai Lama, is to use the traditions of Buddhism, science, and Western philosophy to balance the contemplative life with serving others effectively. His colorful international stories embody the wisdom of many spiritual leaders and tell us that compassion without action is hypocritical. Advocating that we cultivate an appreciation for the future of our planet as well as for each passing moment, he says we need to make the combination of compassion and altruism a continuing part of our culture.
