To my fellow Overstock Shoppers: I ordered this audio CD for myself and it was so good, I ordered another for a friend. Matthieu Ricard is a distinguished French scientist who became a Buddhist monk. He the interpreter for the Dalai Lama when he is in France. "Happiness" (the audio CD) is taken from his book by the same name, and is an outstandingly easy way to change the way we view life and remove our toxic emotions. Because Matthieu Ricard is a westerner he explains the Buddhist concepts of lovingkindness and compassion so that we western non-Buddhists can understand them with ease. I listen to this CD every day and cannot recommend it highly enough. Respectfully, Monica

Written with a strong sense of spirituality and compassion, the monks of New Skete have written the best source of information on understanding the mentality of a dog that I have come across. This book has helped me to develop stronger bonds with three rescue dogs, each with their own personality and peculiarities. Highly recommended.

I couldn't recommend this book higher!! It is JUST LIKE the television series.........funny, poignant, interesting and dramatic. I think the author is excellent, but this particular book is acres above his Mr. Monk and the Firehouse. There are no ho hum moments....it is pretty fast paced, and Monk has not lost his touch. In this novel Monk is temporarily reinstated in the police force and becomes captain ala Stottlemeyer when Leland and Randy and all the other police go on strike. Not only do you have Monk doing his usual and unusual, you also have some new characters who have neuroses of their own. I particularly liked shootem-up-Wyatt. When Monk gets held hostage, Wyatt threatens to shoot the abductor right through Monk! Thinking he was nutts enough to do it, the murder suspect releases Monk and gets arrested!! Anyone who likes comedy, mystery, suspense AND the Monk television series will truly enjoy this masterpiece of comedy/suspense/mystery/crime solving. Plus, after the ending, there's a post script where Monk joins Natalie at Traffic school that's worth the price of the book right there!! People who have never even heard of the Monk series may be able to enjoy it any way......it's hilarious!!
