To apply a Buddhist viewpoint to relationships is eye-opening. It points to a radically different worldview, one that runs counter to the spirit of much of the conventional advice we receive. Broken hearts, resentment, affairs, divorce. Why is it so hard to make relationships work? New York Times bestselling author and mindfulness expert Susan Piver applies classic Buddhist wisdom to modern romance, including her own long-term relationship, to show that ancient philosophies have timeless--and unexpected--wisdom on how to love. The Four Noble Truths of Love will challenge the expectations you have about dating, sex, and romance, liberating you from the habits, traumas, and expectations that have been holding back your relationships. This mindful approach toward love will help you open your heart fearlessly, deepen communications with your partner, increase your compassion and resilience, and lead you toward a path of true happiness. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain: expansive, real love for yourself and others.

The way we think about wealth and livelihood affects our personal experience and our world dramatically. Yet we rarely contemplate the heart of prosperity, which may be why it feels like we are struggling personally and globally. The Four Noble Truths illuminate the foundation of a wealthy outlook, which makes economic life more workable and creates a better world at the same time. Layth Matthews is a Buddhist economist who thinks you can afford to cheer up right now! With humor and practical examples he will confirm your hunch that economic life is miserable, but not serious, and materialism is an endless detour from richness of all kinds. This book provides the essential DNA of sustainable business, sustainable economics, and mindful leadership.
