An excellent collection of frank wisdom about how to embrace the highs and lows of life. As ever, Pema Chödrön excels at making what feels impossible to accept actually feel possible. If you enjoy this, check out Chödrön's book, Taking the Leap!

The best introduction to Buddhist practice for North Americans that I've found. Compassionate, insightful and pragmatic.
