A practicing psychiatrist and the author of such books about the interface of Buddhism and psychotherapy as Thoughts Without a Thinker and Psychotherapy Without the Self, Mark Epstein here looks at trauma not as an unfortunate experience that happens to a few unlucky people, but instead as the bedrock of psychological development. Western psychology teaches that if we understand the cause of trauma, we might move past it, while Eastern practices see meditation as a means of rising above, or distancing oneself from difficult emotions. Yet if trauma doesn't destroy us, Epstein argues, it can wake us up to both our mind's own capacity and to the suffering of others, making us more humane, caring, and wise.

"Mark Epstein's book is a rare and remarkable achievement. It fuses deep scholarship with deep tenderness—in the spirit of the greatest Buddhist teachers—to investigate the nature and psychic repercussions of trauma. The fact that Epstein can effortlessly transit between the ancient truths of Buddhism and the most contemporary understanding of trauma is a testament to his agility as a thinker. This is a wise and important book."—Siddhartha Muhkerjee
