I've read a few books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama so far and honestly I've struggled through all of them.
The Dalai Lama's Book Of Wisdom is the best one I`ve read to date. It's the easiest to read as well as being very simple and at the same time deep in it's content.
It's divided into 4 short wonderful sections:
Contentment, Joy and Living Well
Facing Death and Dying
Dealing With Anger and Emotion
Giving and Receiving
It's one of those books that you can keep by your night table or in your meditation area or wherever and take a look at it every so often.
The cover is so warm, inviting and peaceful that I might just have to get another copy, cut the cover out and frame it.

In this small{literally] book, HH Dalai lama speaks of compassion,ridding oneself of anger,forgiveness of enemies,living life in a truly more loving way. Though much of it seems familar to western ears[the ideas of love compassion and service are not unknown in western religion and philosophy],the simplicity of much of what the dalai lama says is striking. His own struggles with anger are enlightening,and the prose,gleaned from lectures I believe, is smooth and cleanly transformed into english.There are other books of the dalai lama that are far more demanding{"tranforming the mind" for example},though few are more accesible. A lovely gift,a wonderful introduction to one of the masters of the day.

In this pocket-size text, His Holiness the XIV Dali Lama offers simple but profound counsel to those who wish to change their lives for the better. Buy it. Read it. Then, put it in your desk drawer at work, beside your bed, on a coffee table, or in your glove compartment where you can easily find it when you are tempted to deal harshly with other fallible human beings.

This is not so much a book as an aide to meditation and reflection.
If you are learning about Buddhism, and therefore about meditation, this book is very useful. I keep mine by my meditation table (with candle, incense, little Buddha statue and a small saying). Before meditating, I open the book randomly and reflect upon the statement made by HH Dalai Lama, as I ease inwardly.
Highly recommended for yourself, or as a gift for a friend.

The Dalai Lam is undoubtedly one of the great spiritual leaders of our time. But this little book of, basically, excerpts from his other books, isn't worth buying. Buy the complete books from which these excerpts are taken. Then there will be a logical development of thought, the those thoughts will be expressed in very meaningful contexts.

If your looking for some wisdom and spiritual enlightenment to help you through your day or even life, this is a must book to read and have for those moments. Sorry Christians, but I look to the Dalai Lama's life of wisdom over the bible.
