Massmarket edition of this spiritual guide to making the most of life, through bad times as well as good, from bestselling author Pema Chodron.

This accessible book has been on the US bestseller lists consistently for four years now. In The Wisdom of No Escape, bestselling author Pema Chodron shows us the profound value of our situation of `no exit' from the ups and downs of life. This book is about saying yes to life in all its manifestations - about making friends with ourselves and our world and embracing the potent mixture of joy, suffering, brilliance, and confusion that characterizes the human experience. It urges us to wake up wholeheartedly to everything and to use the abundant, richly textured fabric of everyday life as our primary spiritual teacher and guide.

Review by

Maybe the best introduction to Buddhism as a way of life. For optimists who are "there" already emotionally, and want to be seriously grounded in this impressive doctrine, here's a bunch of solid reasons to think of life as a great adventure :-)
