Reviews

"A Force for Good offers ideas that every individual can work with and build on, ranging from things that help the environment to things that help the less fortunate. [It's] a long-range, global plan from a brilliant futuristic thinker, so this is a book that can be of value to any human living on Earth. When you're ready for a jolt of optimism, pick up this book."--Pop Culture Nerd

"Far from being a self-help book, this examines specific ideas espoused by the Dalai Lama, such as emotional hygiene, compassionate economy, and education of the heart that can make the world a better place. An optimistic and thoughtful primer with practical applications."--Booklist
