What the community says about The Art of Happiness
- "The Art of Happiness is a book by the Dalai Lama. The book started the genre of 'happiness' books, and it remains the cornerstone of the field of positive psychology. It includes stories and meditation guides from the Dalai Lama himself in order to help the reader defeat negativity and achieve happiness."
- "This is a classic from the Dalai Lama. It is suitable for any background, and shouldn't conflict with your personal religious beliefs. Many readers have reported being helped with problems with bad temper and depression, so if you read it with an open mind and a willingness to change yourself you could find this to be a great book."
- "The Art of Happiness is written by psychiatrist, Howard C. Cutler, who shared conversation with the great Dalai Lama. The book is a series of interviews of the spiritual leader who shared wonderful thoughts on how to live a fuller happy life inwardly and to turn any negativity into something positive and feel genuine happiness."

in What are the best Self-help books"I have read a lot of self help books but none have been better than The Art of Happiness. You get great advice from the Dalai Lama on how to be happier every day, avoid stress and anger and be a better person. If you're looking to improve yourself, definitely check out this book""I'm always looking for ways to improve my perspective on life. The Art of Happiness helped me develop new coping skills and offered great advice on common personal problems."
- "Sometimes it is just difficult to accept yourself and the things that have happened to you. This book helps you get passed the things that have stuck to your soul as it wanders through this world and allows you to get to the point of having and enjoying happiness."
- "When it comes to books that are co-authored, it's either hit or miss...and let's be frank, it's usually miss! This is an exception to the almost-rule, however. The Art of Happiness may as well be an example of the art of book writing! The two hands behind the pens flow so brilliantly, and the energy each of these individuals produces is unlike any other... 1 + 1 does not equal 2 in this case, it is so much more!"
- "Reading through this book makes me feel hopeful and optimistic. The problem is that while this advice seems simple and easy to follow, "real life" often makes this kind of mythical advice less-than-practical.""This book was a very interesting read, I had many moments I found myself laughing or just smiling. It also made me feel happy and interested in life while reading this book.""This book is full of interesting stories and thought provoking situations. If you felt the urge of boredom occurring, then this is the book for you. ""Really good book if you're dealing with some anxiety or depression. If you question who you really are this is a fantastic read."
- "Like many people I pray for peace and mindfulness and iI can think of no better example of this than the good ole Dalai Lama. I like the way he makes light and airy what so many alleged teacher make all heavy and burdensome. I bet there is an audio version of this imortant book. His voice really brings out all the above, at least I think so.""This book didn't help me at all. No disrespect to Dalai Lama, but he lives an entire different life than most people on the planet do, including me. His advice may fit his lifestyle, but as a high stressed day trader it's just frustrating to me.""The Art of Happiness is a must read if you want to start meditation. It will give you the idea around while it's important to meditate and be stress free."
