Format: Paperback
Dr. Leifer, a psychiatrist, borrows from his Buddhist practice and his
clinical experience to offer profound insights into the sources of
anxiety and depression in the West. He makes a compelling case that
the projects we develop to make us happy become the sources of our
unhappiness. Meditation can help reduce the three "poisons"
that make us miserable--desire, aversion, and ignorance.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Janice B on August 12, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is the most profound book I have ever studied. During the past 20 years I have invested my time and money in books that detail the human condition and the causes and possible relief of our pain and suffering. This book takes an objective stance and casts a reality check on politics, religion, and many other belief systems we employ in our societies in order to alleviate pain and suffering and to strive for those things that can bring us joy and everlasting happiness. This book has helped me to better understand the belief systems of those around me and to have more empathy and compassion knowing that we all have our own 'happiness projects'. Essentially we're all on an unknown journey. Our Happiness Projects are our coping mechanisms. This book gives me comfort in knowing that we're all doing the best we can do given what we know.

This book is a magnificent overview of the human search for happiness, its variations, its fatal flaws, its pathos, its successes. Excellent look at happiness as a phenomenon. Highly recommended.

This is a terrific book. I have not read such a clear, liberating account of the causes of anxiety and depression. I highly recommend this.
