With war and violence flaring  all over the world, many of us are left feeling vulnerable and utterly helpless. In this book Pema Ch#65533;dr#65533;n draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the origins of aggression, hatred, and war, explaining that they lie nowhere but within our own hearts and minds. She goes on to explain that the way in which we as individuals respond to challenges in our everyday lives can either perpetuate a culture of violence or create a new culture of compassion.

"War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals," declares Pema Ch#65533;dr#65533;n at the opening of this inspiring and accessible book. She goes on to offer practical techniques any of us can use to work for peace in our own lives, at the level of our habits of thought and action. It's never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living and transform not only our personal lives but our whole world.

It's an accessible short read with some simple insights. The feel is conversational and down to earth. The stories and discussions are focused on understanding how to dig into your anger and fear to understand where it comes from, and how to disrupt negative habits. It's a great start if you'd like to understand your negative thoughts/emotions/actions.
