“The Book of Joy,” written by Douglas Abrams about Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, is the book of the season. Its treasures include their own stories and teachings about joy, the most recent findings in the science of deep happiness, and the daily practices that anchor their own emotion- al and spiritual lives. The eight pillars of joy outlined in its pages have much to teach us about life, suffering, struggle, and renewal.
