Author(s): Lodro Rinzler
From the author of the best-selling "Buddha Walks into a Bar . . .," tips for living with integrity, compassion, and happiness--from his popular "Huffington Post" advice column. Since the summer of 2010, young Buddhist teacher Lodro Rinzler has been writing a popular advice column for the "Huffington Post" and the Interdependence Project called "What Would Sid Do?" ("Sid" being Lodro's nickname for Siddhartha Gautama--the prince who became the Buddha). Lodro's insightful and often funny answers to questions--ranging from how to forgive, to how to deal with a boss who's a bully, to whether or not it's OK to join Match.com--have made him the Dear Abby of the spiritual-but-not-religious crowd. This book gathers all of Lodro's "Huffington Post" columns, along with much as-yet-unpublished material, to provide a guide to life in a Q&A format that allows you to easily access wisdom for dealing with the myriad challenges of life--traditional challenges as well as uniquely modern ones related to things like social justice and social media.
