Attempting to convey the spirit of Buddhism in its most rational, practical and mundane form this book offers a way for normal healthy people to become more healthy and explains that when the simple belief is properly understood the vast range of practices and doctrines begin to make sense. The author also wrote "Beyond Therapy: The Impact of Eastern Religions on Psychological Theory and Practice", "Living The Faith: Buddhist Lives" and "Teachers on Form: Staying Positive in a Stressful Time".
