By His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, M.D.
I read this a couple of years ago and went out and bought a copy for each of my sons. The Dalai Lama defines empathy and compassion in a way that I hadn't understood before. The book has helped me with life at home and in the business world. The one thing I realized is how important it is to look at a situation from another person's perspective. Sometimes, when you change your lens ever so slightly, you see everything differently—and you can find a solution to a nagging problem.
