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
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 This book gathers all of Lodro's Huffington Post columns, along with much as-yet-unpublished material, to provide a guide to life in a Q&A format that allows you to easily access wisdom for dealing with the myriad challenges of life — traditional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.
"Many readers will be delighted by a welcome departure from goody-goody attitudes toward Buddhist practice in Rinzler’s earnest dealings with 'taboo' subjects like sex and binge drinking." Tricycle
