How Patience Works: The Quiet Mind to Benefit Others

How Patience Works: The Quiet Mind to Benefit Others - Janet Ettele This book doesn't really deserve 4 stars as a work of literature. But that's not really what it is. There's a story line, and a few characters introduced, but they mainly set up the role of student and teacher and a couple real-life examples of the practice of patience. It's really a teaching piece about overcoming anger, and in that category, it's a 4-star. It thoroughly explains compassion, which leads to patience, and the danger of categorizing others into friend and enemy.

An enjoyable read, and a good teacher.

I got this from the firstreads program.
