The Book of Joy by Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams

The book reveals the hearts and minds of two people whose lives we should all try to emulate. Their friendship and respect for each other is a beautiful example of how we can all love each other. -Gail Nields

Rating: 10/10

I love the sharing of the humor, inspiration, and intimacy shared by and between these two great men.  Besides that, the book is, well, joyful! -Jenna Litschewski
