About this work


"This book tells the remarkable story of a neurosurgeon's quest to unravel the mystery of the link between our brains and our hearts. From the moment in his childhood when a simple act of kindness changed the course of his own life to his founding a center to study compassion at Stanford University. Jim Doty's life illustrates how each of us can make a difference. I'm sure many readers will be moved by this inspiring story to open their hearts and see what they too can do for others" His Holiness the Dalai Lama--back cover
