Summary
Altruism--genuine concern for the well-being of others--could be the saving grace of the twenty-first century. It is, Ricard believes, the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time: the economy in the short term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and environment in the long term. Matthieu Ricard makes a case for cultivating altruistic love and compassion as the best means for simultaneously benefitting ourselves and our society
