Overview

The New York Times calls him “America’s number one Buddhist.” He is the co-founder of Tibet House New York, was the first American Tibetan Buddhist monk, and has shared a thirty-five-year friendship with the Dalai Lama. Now, Robert Thurman presents his first completely original book, an introduction to Buddhism and ”an inspiring guide to incorporating Buddhist wisdom into daily life” (USA Today). Written with insight, enthusiasm, and impeccable scholarship, Inner Revolution is not only a national bestseller and practical primer on one of the world’s most fascinating traditions, but it is also a wide-ranging look at the course of our civilization–and how we can alter it for the better. “Part spiritual memoir, part philosophical treatise and part religious history, Thurman’s book is a passionate declaration of the possibilities of renewing the world” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
