Glaser wrote this book to remedy a deficiency she discovered while engaged in psychological research--a nearly complete omission of the importance and cultivation of compassion. Glaser introduces as a remedy the Buddhist practice of the Iojong, expressed in the text of The Seven Points of Mind Training, for developing love and compassion.

I was drawn to this book after reading an article in the Shambala Sun by the author about the Tibetan practice of Lojong. I wanted to know more about it. I underlined many passages in this book about leading a compassionate life. She is trying to argue with psychology that they should be more concerned with helping patients become compassionate as well as "whole". Very good.
