In the world of mindfulness and pursuit of inner peace, I find there is far too much spiritual and narrative bloat attempting to overly romanticise what are actually basic core physiological and psychological concepts and practices. This book I find to be a good source of those core principles without that superficial bluster.
It is a surprisingly practical book, broken into many usable sections, with an extensive contents list which helps for review. These sections are not only delivered from the author's personal experience, but from her professional experience as well, serving to interpret the concepts in a more frank manner. It is extensive, well written, and recommended for those looking to wade through the bloat of the spiritual theory and narrative and get right to the tools.

RefreshingReviewed in France on 15 March 2021
I found in Lenorë Lambert's book a refreshing presentation of the Buddha's wisdom and its origins. She offers a non-religious approach that I think is appropriate to our contemporary minds. Nevertheless, it is by no means another expression of the current trend towards selfish well-being, but a real help to nourish our life with others. Moreover, it is very pleasant to read, written simply and with expression. I am looking forward to the paper edition and the translations.
