The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World

The author of the international bestseller Happiness makes a passionate case for altruism—and why we need it now more than ever.

In this major work, Matthieu Ricard presents a global vision based on decades of personal experience and insight, a road map for the 21st century.  It is a fresh outlook on an ardent struggle, and one that just might make the world a better place by simultaneously benefiting ourselves and our society.

The book paints a complete picture of the importance of altruism and the world’s need for it, and explores its impact in society, politics, the economy, the environment, and education.

Major world entrepreneurs, economists, and thinkers have embraced Ricard’s message. It is universal in its approach and will appeal to anyone and everyone who seeks to create a more positive and sustainable future.
