In Altruism Matthieu Ricard, co-founder of Karuna-Shechen and author of the international bestseller Happiness, makes a robust and passionate case for altruism—and why we need it now more than ever.
Altruism, Ricard’s new masterwork, presents a global vision based on decades of personal experience and insight, a road map for the 21st century. Ricard demonstrates how altruism is an essential dimension of our nature that everyone can cultivate and expand. He emphasizes developing altruistic compassion as the best means for benefiting ourselves and our society.
Ricard uncovers the reasons why altruism is 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.
The book paints a complete picture of the importance of altruism and the world’s need for it, and explores its impact in society, politics, the economy, the environment, and education. Major world entrepreneurs, economists, and thinkers have embraced Ricard’s message. It is universal in its approach and will appeal to anyone and everyone who seeks to create a more positive and sustainable future.
Altruism was a bestseller in France and will be published in the USA on June 2, 2015, by Little Brown. A North American tour will launch the book with events in San Francisco, New York City, L.A., and Washington D.C.
