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
