When happiness is a function of Nasdaq direction, the concepts of peace and serenity don’t get much play. But Paula Peisner Coxe offers a quickie guidebook to inner tranquility. You won’t learn anything new here; Coxe’s wisdom is the off-the-shelf variety. Each of the book’s brief chapters focuses on one way to achieve peace, like forgiving, accepting and loving. These notions don’t seem very original, but perhaps Coxe deserves the benefit of the doubt: Millions of Buddhists achieve a sense of well being from writings that are centuries old, and you don’t hear them complaining about too many clichés.

But if you last felt a sense of overwhelming contentment while watching CNBC, this book may not be quite down-to-earth enough for you.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What peace really is and how to achieve it,
  • Which four pillars will support you in this endeavor, and
  • What elements help you learn from your past.
