Would you listen to How to Be Compassionate again? Why?
I have been an on and off practitioner of Buddhism for about 20 years now, so this review is biased, but in this case I don't think that bias is going to harm anyone who might listen to this audiobook because of this review. I will listen to this audiobook again and again, repeatedly, because I do want to learn how to get back to that place where I was a more compassionate human being. The only way to do that is through practice.
What about Jeffrey Hopkins, Ph.D.’s performance did you like?
I think Dr. Hopkins did a fine reading of the material and I am extremely picky about the readers performances.
Any additional comments?
I believe this is a book for everyone, regardless of faith. If we all could practice just a little more compassion, I think the world would be a much nicer place.

As expected from any material from the Dalai Lama, this book was clear, logical, and not pretentious. the book doesn't just cover on how to be more compassionate towards others, but how it helps us grow, why we should being compassionate towards those who inflict suffering on ourselves and others, and how compassion plays a significant part an hour journey to be free of suffering. I would say that while the narrator was clear and very fitting for the book, he spoke very slowly. I listened at 1.4 speed, generally. Great book, well done narration and highly recommended!
Listening to this audio book made me realise I need to be more compassionate, really good stuff
This book is great - it is well reasoned and totally inspiring. Listening to this book makes me want to become a better person. The Dalai Lama is a truly wise spiritual leader, and this book is one of his best. The narrator has a great voice too, it totally complements the text. I recommend getting this book.
