"Altruism - The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World"

In his new book, Matthieu Ricard, author of the international bestseller Happiness , makes a robust and passionate case for altruism
—and why we need it now more than ever. Altruism , Ricard's new masterwork, presents a global vision based on decades of personal

but an essential dimension of our nature that everyone can cultivate and expand.
