Editorial Reviews

Review

“An inspirational read that not only demonstrates the power of compassion, but also reveals how kindness and self-compassion are within our reach.”
—Kelly McGonigal, author, The Upside of Stress and The Willpower Instinct
 
“Embracing compassion enables us to step into our own natural capacity for creativity and empathy.  I highly recommend this extraordinary book and this path to anyone who seeks to have more meaningful connections to people and the world.”
—David Kelley, Founder of IDEO, co-author, Creative Confidence: Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All

A Fearless Heart is a rare book that shows how the meeting of contemplative insights and practices with modern science can lead to offerings that are beneficial for everyone interested in deeper personal spiritual transformation. The book shows how such practices can have positive impact in our daily lives. I applaud my long-time English translator Thupten Jinpa for writing this timely book on compassion and its cultivation.”
—His Holiness the Dalai Lama
 
“I love Jinpa’s sense of the practical, of bringing compassion down from the pedestal of high ideals and into the messy reality that is every day human life.  A Fearless Heart may prove to be one of the important books of these difficult times.”
—Richard Gere

"Brilliantly clear and heartfelt, a potentially life changing work offering inspiring training. A Fearless Heart is personally moving, eminently practical and visionary in scope."
—Jack Kornfield, author, The Wise Heart 
 
“Jinpa shows why compassion is not a given within some yet not possible for others, but rather is a quality of the heart that we all can cultivate and expand. If we do that, our lives transform, our families and relationships transform, and our world transforms.”
—Sharon Salzberg, author of Loving Kindness and Real Happiness
 
“Firmly grounded in the latest scientific studies, and hugely invitational and convincing in its inspiration, its reasoning, its heartfulness, and its guidance in a broad range of powerful practices, A Fearless Heart is the bravest, clearest, and most engaging book I know on why we need to cultivate compassion, and on how to bring it more widely and deeply into our lives and into the world.” —Jon Kabat-Zinn  Founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction; Author of Full Catastrophe Living
 
“Thupten Jinpa speaks from his expertise as a monk turned family man, and a topflight scholar, who draws on his remarkable background and range of knowledge to offer each one of us a practical tool kit for becoming a better human being. A Fearless Heart can help anyone nurture the compassion that lies within every heart.”
—Daniel Goleman, author, Emotional Intelligence
 
“Part autobiography, part a training manual for a wholesome life and part a beautiful tapestry woven between ancient Buddhist thought and modern science, this book has something for everyone.  At its fundamental core, it makes the case for why compassion is so essential for the modern world and offers detailed helpful advice on how it can be cultivated.”
—Richard J. Davidson, co-author, The Emotional Life of Your Brain, Founder, Center for Investigating Healthy Minds, University of Wisconsin-Madison
