Using common sense and modern psychiatry, this illuminating book applies 2,500 years of Buddhist tradition to the contemporary struggles we face in finding our calling and performing our jobs. It asks of the Dalai Lama questions we all want answered about the nature of work and finding fulfillment, including: How does the relationship between our personal values and those of our employers affect happiness? What are the main sources of dissatisfaction and how can we cope with them? How do we deal with conflicts with coworkers and bosses? How do we deal with jealousy, anger, or hostility at work? How do we deal with boredom or lack of challenge? Unfair criticism? Job change and unemployment?

Once again, Cutler walks us through the Dalai Lama’s reasoning so that we know how to apply the wisdom to daily life. This is an invaluable source of strength and peace for anyone who earns a living.

Al staat de naam van de Dalai Lama met grote letters op de voorkant van het boek, het is Howard C. Cutler die de tekst geschreven heeft en de woorden van de Dalai Lama in een jasje over zijn eigen aangedragen onderwerp (geluk op het werk) heeft gegoten. Het wordt dan ook duidelijk (net zoals het vorige boek met de titel De Kunst van het Geluk) vanuit de Amerikaanse cultuur gebracht, boeiend wellicht voor de Westerling maar veel minder voor andere culturen, denk ik.

Het boekje leest zeer makkelijk wat voornamelijk komt door de vele levende voorbeelden die Howard Cutler geeft vanuit zijn eigen leven en praktijk als psychotherapeut. Voorbeelden die voor een gemiddelde Westerling zeer invoelbaar zijn en daarmee de woorden van de Dalai Lama eenvoudig verduidelijkt en benadrukt.
Er wordt ook nogal wat herhaald waardoor je als lezer niet ontkomt aan de kern van wat de schrijver wil overbrengen. Persoonlijk vond ik een aantal herhalingen ietwat te veel van het goede en wilde ik wel roepen dat ik het nu wel begrepen had. Jaja, weinig boeddhistisch van mij, ik heb nog heel wat te leren.

Maar over het algemeen nam ik het boekje met plezier ter hand en werd al licht van stemming bij het idee dat ik er weer verder in zou gaan lezen. De luchtige uitstraling van de woorden gesproken door de Dalai Lama gaf mij het gevoel dat hij evenzeer het leven ernstig neemt als zo weet te relativeren dat het op zijn minst dragelijk en wie weet uiteindelijk de moeite waard maakt.
Een positivistische instelling zonder zweverig of irreëel te zijn. Beide benen stevig op de grond en met een brede lach. ( )

Amazon.com Review:

In their 1998 book "The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living", His Holiness the Dalai Lama and co-author Howard C. Cutler, M.D., explored how inner development contributes to overall happiness. In their second collaboration, the authors considered how they could best follow their highly successful first book. They chose a subject that affects millions of people around the world and produced. In this very readable, useful book, the authors attempt to discover the following: "Where does work fit in to our overall quest for happiness?" and "To what degree does work satisfaction affect our overall life satisfaction and happiness?"

"The Art of Happiness at Work" is a modern-day Socratic dialogue in which Cutler asks the Dalai Lama about the difficulties and rewards we might encounter in the workplace. The authors explore issues such as work and identity, making money, the Buddhist concept of "right livelihood," and transforming dissatisfaction at work. The discussion appears simple, if not obvious, at first, but upon closer scrutiny, the Dalai Lama's profound wisdom and sensitivity emerges. For the Dalai Lama, basic human values such as kindness, tolerance, compassion, honesty, and forgiveness are the source of human happiness. Throughout the book, he illustrates with clear examples how bringing those qualities to bear on work-related challenges can help us tolerate or overcome the most thorny situations. Recognizing that not all problems can be solved, the Dalai Lama provides very sound advice. The authors urge balance and self-awareness and wisely state, "No matter how satisfying our work is, it is a mistake to rely on work as our only source of satisfaction." --Silvana Tropea

From Publishers Weekly:

It should come as no surprise that the Dalai Lama, who is believed by his followers to be the human incarnation of the Buddha of Compassion, would take a compassionate interest in helping Westerners find happiness in the daily grind. Still, this slim follow-up to the 1998 bestseller "The Art of Happiness" will be a revelation to those who aren't yet familiar with the thought of the brilliant Buddhist monk. Attitude and a sense of meaning are the keys to happiness at work, the exiled Tibetan leader tells psychiatrist Cutler in the course of conversations that took place over several years. What will surprise many is the prime importance the Dalai Lama places on reason and analysis, and on the need to acquire "a sense of self that is grounded in reality, an undistorted recognition of one's abilities and characteristics." Cutler presents the findings of various Western researchers, including the concept of "flow," that state of blissful absorption in an activity that allows people to lose track of time and self-identity. The Dalai Lama compares flow to meditative experience, yet downplays it. In order to achieve the kind of happiness that can be sustained even in the hardest times, he says, we must engage in the slow, steady work of training our hearts and minds, rooting out negative habits and cultivating basic human values like kindness and compassion. The Dalai Lama avoids generalization, emphasizing the complexity of individual situations. He won't condemn the manufacture of weapons, for example, because, he says, although they are destructive, "nations do need weapons for security purposes." At a time when Western spiritual seekers are flocking to books telling them that all they really need to be happy and good is to enter into a blissful meditative communion with the now, it is provocative and moving to be urged to think and to know oneself by the man who is arguably the greatest living symbol of the developed spirit in action. And what may be most moving is this: if the Dalai Lama is right, and if people do as he suggests-if they learn to see themselves impartially and to analyze their work in light of how many people it touches-they will begin to see, whether they are picking oranges or writing a novel, that the highest purpose of work and, indeed, of life is the helping of others.
