Available Today: Ebook, Tiny Buddha’s Handbook for Peace & Happiness

Tiny Buddha’s Handbook for Peace and Happiness is the ultimate guide of Tiny Buddha wisdom, based on some of the most popular posts and quotes from the site. You’ll also find 4 posts not previously published on tinybuddha.com.

Through this eBook, I’ve shared myself authentically and vulnerably, and have also offered countless action-oriented suggestions to improve your state of mind, enhance your relationships, identify what makes you feel passionate and purposeful, and find the courage to overcome obstacles and seize your dreams.

These are my most popular, value-packed posts, as viewed by over 1.2 million readers in the last year and a half, hand-picked and edited into one easy-to-access PDF file.

10 Reasons to Buy Tiny Buddha’s Handbook for Peace & Happiness

You may be wondering why you should purchase this eBook, considering that many of these posts are already published on tinybuddha.com.

1. I’ve compiled and edited my most popular posts into one convenient resource.

I publish contributions from writers all over the world, but this eBook is a compilation of my personal best, as indicated through social networking shares and comment. If you’ve enjoyed the insights I’ve shared about letting go and embracing happiness, you may enjoy having them all in one place.

2. You’ll find a number of action-oriented solutions to the universal problems we all face, based in reality as it is.

As I mentioned last year in my talk at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, I consistently leverage social media to ascertain what problems people are actively dealing with. Generally, they’re the same challenges I’ve faced and continue to face. We really aren’t all that different.

With every post, I’ve shared my own struggles honestly and offered realistic solutions, free from clichés.

3. You can print this eBook and access it anywhere.

If you want a little Tiny Buddha on the go or you’d like to read it disconnected from technology, this is a convenient way to access it.

4. You’ll find new content.

As you’ll see in the Table of Contents, I’ve added four posts that you can’t find on tinybuddha.com, including:

  • You Are Nothing (and That’s a Good Thing)
  • 10 Reasons It’s Awesome People Don’t Like You
  • Letting Go of Attachment: From A to Zen
  • You Say You Want It: So Why Do You Feel Paralyzed?

5. The ebook has an attractive design.

Joshua Denney who designed tinybuddha.com created a beautiful design, with dozens of color photographs.

6. Tiny Buddha’s Handbook for Peace and Happiness makes a wonderful gift.

If you’ve forwarded Tiny Buddha emails to friends and family in the past, they would likely appreciate reading the posts they may have missed.

7. I’ve priced the eBook to be affordable.

In my pre-release research, I learned that many people sell eBooks of this length and value for $27 or $47. Since I personally would not spend that much on a physical book let alone an eBook, I priced this as I found reasonable for a resource of this size.

8. I’ve consistently focused on honesty, authenticity, and integrity.

In running Tiny Buddha, I have received countless offers to monetize the social networking pages and this site. I have systematically rejected all of those offers, choosing instead to support the site with a select few hand-chosen sponsors.

The reader experience has always been my top priority with Tiny Buddha. You can trust that this resource will be worth the investment and more.

9. Buying Tiny Buddha’s Handbook for Peace and Happiness supports me and my continual work here.

If you’ve enjoyed Tiny Buddha, on Twitter since 2008 and on tinybuddha.com since 2009, this is a fantastic way to ensure the brand’s continued growth.

I’ve devoted thousands of hours and dollars to developing and expanding the site, throwing everything I have into my writing and editing, and regularly investing in new design elements and site features. I recently launched the Tiny Buddha quote widget, and I have plans to provide other resources and tools for happiness and mindfulness.

I by no means expect anything from the readers—this is a free site, and many of these posts already exist within the archives. But if you’d like to give something back while also receiving tremendous value, this is a wonderful opportunity to do it.

10. In reading this book, you will learn to:

  • Accept and love your authentic self
  • Depend less on external approval for happiness
  • Experience a greater sense of happiness in the present moment
  • Move on from painful events to feel joy again
  • Let go of negative feelings, attachments, fears, worries, and stresses
  • Stay present and peaceful, even when dealing with uncertainty
  • Create and maintain peaceful, loving, meaningful relationships
  • Deal with difficult or negative people
  • Slow down while still achieving goals
  • Find the courage to start pursuing meaningful work
  • Create and seek new possibilities for excitement and adventure
  • Overcome obstacles, mental blocks, and criticism to seize dreams

    What a beautiful book! I eagerly bought a copy tonight for two reasons: 1) It will help my voyage back into a more spiritual mindset, and 2) I want to support Lori, her amazing writing, and Tiny Buddha in general.

    I can’t wait to go to work on Monday, print it up, and bind it so I have a handy copy to read without having to lug around my laptop. :)

    Was so hoping for a hard copy book.

    I think I saw Lori mention that she’s working on a physical printed book for the near future… In the case of this book, I eagerly printed out a copy and bound it at work (I work at a UPS Store and we have a Unibind machine), so I have a nice, sturdy printed version to read. It was worth the effort so I can flop down on the couch and enjoy! :)

  • http://twitter.com/lori_deschene Lori Deschene

    Thank you Thomas! Yes, I will have a physical book in stores at the end of the year. I’m sorry that this book isn’t available in hard copy, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

    Hi Lori,
    I don’t have any credit cards anymore. I’m an unemployed CA school teacher. Actually, even a literacy expert. However, our budget only allows for inexpensive “newbies” right out of college. I’m really quite depressed but “Little Budha “always helps. Thanks for your lovely work.

    hi! This has become one of my favorite websites for inspiration, especially when I am feeling like the world is coming to an end for me.  Unfortunately, I am a pessimistic person. I don’t know why. I worry alot, i complain alot, and I get upset easily! i hope that with this website, it can change me to become a carefree, worryfree, happy person :)

  • http://twitter.com/lori_deschene Lori Deschene

    I’m so glad! I understand that instinct to worry. If I don’t take the time to clear my mind through meditation or yoga, I worry excessively. It takes a very conscious effort for me to maintain a sense of inner calm. It helps me to remember that we are really quite similar. We all struggle with the same things, and we can all help each other if we’re willing to be honest.

    I just purchased your ebook and am excited to read it and take it all in.  At almost 40, I am finally working on & learning how to be me (figuring out who I am to start – and not shaping myself to what I think other’s expect or want).  It’s not an easy process, but the little successes I have had have made it all worthwhile.  Your website has been a huge help for this growth, thank you!

  • http://twitter.com/lori_deschene Lori Deschene

    Thanks for the note, Summer! I’m glad to hear Tiny Buddha has been helpful to you. I find that I continually discover new pieces of what it means to really be me. It’s really helped me to focus on the process–that growth is an ongoing journey, not a destination. I hope you enjoy the eBook. =)

  • Summer

    Lori, I’ve read about 1/3 of it already and love it!!  I had prevously read a few of the posts on here, but really like having it all in one place; kind of like a life manual.  I can’t wait to read the remainder of it and then go back through and read it all over again more slowly.  Thanks again for helping people by sharing your journey!

    You are most welcome! Thank you for letting me know you’re enjoying it. =)

  • Moh-sin

    Hi Lori, 

    I purchased your book online (great read btw) and was excited to hear that you were coming out with another book — a hardcover one at that!

    My question is this — is the book going to be similar to the Handbook for Peace and Happiness? Or are they different?

    What is your second book more centered towards?

    I am a little confused by this.

    Cheers,

    Moh.

  • http://twitter.com/lori_deschene Lori Deschene

    Hi Moh,

    I’m so glad you enjoyed my eBook! My print book is actually quite different, although it covers some of the same ideas.

    The eBook is a compilation from the site, so it’s collection of blog posts, as opposed to one cohesive text.

    For the print book, I started by asking Twitter followers a series of “life’s hardest questions,” on topics including meaning, happiness, pain, fate, love, and more. The book includes roughly 200 of those tweets, along with personal essays from own experience and insights/tips to help people thrive, despite the uncertainty we live with every day. There’s a lot more of my own personal journey in there, and it’s much more comprehensive in exploring the various topics.

    I’m really excited for the launch at the end of the year! I’ve never put so much time, energy, and love into any other project. I hope you enjoy it. =)

    Lori

  • Moh-sin

    That was a swift reply!

    I want you to know — I’ve already pre-ordered the book via Amazon.

    God bless you Lori. Thank you for giving me the courage to face the challenges every new day brings. Now I feel ready to embrace the unknown, to delve deeper into myself — to bring forth the real me — the part of me arising from the combined unity of mind, body, and spirit. 

    I can only imagine what you must have been through these past years of your life in order for you to have written so much. 

    May you live long and prosper.

    Hi Lori – I love your writings and visit your FB pieces often – thank you.  I’ve just tried to order your eBook online, but could you explain to me why the purchase page requires my full street address, plus postal code plus telephone number…  It’s an eBook which I download via the Internet no?  Surely if I enter my names plus Visa details plus E-Mail Address that should be enough information.  I sincerely dislike giving out information over the Internet which is not really required for the purposes of my electronic purchase.

    I’ve decided to test the verification hypthesis, cause it’s interesting to me that some transactions over the internet don’t require anything else than my credit card details, so I tried my real E-Mail, real (full) names, real credit card info, fake address and fake tel # – didn’t work.  Then I entered my real address, but kept the tel # fake – bingo – that worked.  So the verification did require my real address, but the telephone # is not really required.  I’m very skeptical about giving personal details as you can see :) – too many unsolicited phone calls for cruises to Alaska, E-Mails for Viagra and junk mail of all sorts thus far in my life.  Anyways, I got the book – thank you – looking forward to reading it.
    Namaste

  • Serene and happy….

    Hi Lori, I have settled into my comfortable space where I do not stress, worry or complain, but many others around me are not accepting this, just today I was encouraged to participate in “what if’s’ and I refused. They did not look favorably upon this and I am not sure how to deal with these people. Do you have any suggestions on remaining in my inner piece while others try to drag me out?

  • Serene and happy

    sorry that should be peace….woops…

  • http://twitter.com/lori_deschene Lori Deschene

    How wonderful that you’ve been able to eliminate stresses and worries! My best suggestion would be to set and maintain boundaries with people who may want to indulge in this kind of thinking. It may mean redirecting the conversation or even walking away. It may also help to remember that people likely aren’t trying to drag you down; they’re just struggling inside and looking for some relief by talking things through. I wrote a post a while back about negative people that may be relevant here:

    Hi Jennifer,

    At the moment, this eBook is only available here as a PDF file. I am planning to release it in other versions at some point in the future. I will post an announcement on the site when I do!

    Happy Monday,
    Lori

    Hi Lori…

    I want to add my voice to the appeal for Kindle version of your ebook. I’ll buy one when you publish it in Kindle form. 

    In fact, if you haven’t got someone else helping you figure out how to produce a .mobi version, let me know and I’ll help you figure out how. I played with the epub format enough to understand that the Kindle (and other ereaders) are only web browsers in disguise. 

    But then you probably knew that already and I’m just babbling, as usual.

    Best…

    Thanks so much, David! I have been holding off because I’ve been slowly revising my eBook for months, and I wanted to wait until I felt finished with that task–which I do now! I would love your help in making this happen. Could you please email me at email(AT)tinybuddha.com?

    Hi Lori
     
    I just saw your website for the first time today and I love it, I am a very positive person and whole heartedly believe in the posts that I have read today and was so excited to buy your book. People I know cant fathom or understand why Im such a happy and positive person (but dont get me wrong we all have bad days) but Ive always seen being happy and positive as a choice. I could look at something and see the negative point of view and feel terrible or I could choose to take a lesson away from it and be positive. Its so hard to explain to negative people though and even though Ive bought a soft copy for myself I want to buy your hard copy book for a number of people.
     
    Its so good to see like minded people!
     
    Thanks

    I would like a hard back that I can buy for gifts. Please advise when that can happen. E books are
    not good for me. This world is too into e everything. Let us keep some things simple.

    You can read PDF’s on a Kindle, email the file to your kindle email address and save the file to the reader. Et voila!

    Kindle folks, send the pdf file to your kindle account with ‘convert’ in the subject, and it will show up in your kindle library ready to use.
