Dr. Epstein is renowned as both a Buddhist and a psychotherapist and this title explores what the approaches of Buddha and Dr. Freud have in common. We are all afflicted by our egos: it claims to have our best interest at heart, but when it’s given free rein, the result is usually suffering. Here is much practical wisdom on how to encourage it to let go and to live a more fulfilled life. The text is easy to read and full of illuminating stories and anecdotes. The interchange between the two disciplines, both of which have been hugely influential in recent decades, can give fresh impetus in our quest to be happier.
