The Values Compass takes us into the hearts, minds, and traditions of the cultures and people of the world. It demonstrates how interconnected we are and how the divisions that exist between us stem from acting with narrow self-interest rather than concern for the good of our human family. I hope that the book will contribute to making our world a happier place.” —THE DALAI LAMA

Broadcast journalist Dr. Mandeep Rai takes us on a journey across 101 countries, highlighting a unique value that has defined each nation’s history and culture—and how we can apply these to find purpose and fulfilment in our own lives.
