Bringing together ancient Buddhist wisdom and recent breakthroughs in a wide variety of fields from neuroscience to child development, Daniel Goleman's new book offers fresh insights into how we can recognize and transform the destructive emotions that pose grave dangers to our individual and collective fate. Out of a week long discussion between the Dalai Lama and leading figures from the worlds of neruoscience and psychology, Daniel Goleman weaves together a compelling narrative account of what the destructive emotions are, where they come from, how the child and then the adult brain is shaped, how these destructive emotions (craving, anger and delusion, known in Buddhism as the three poisons) can be transformed and how they must be transformed if they are not to threaten humanity's collective safety and its future. "Destructive Emotions" is a timely and important book.
