Robert has been labelled one of the top 100 global thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine in 2009, and Bill Clinton instructed all his White House staff to read his monograph Nonzero because of its “astonishing” message. His books have been translated into more than a dozen different languages across the globe, and he has written for many prestigious publications including: The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, and The Financial Times.

We will be talking with Robert about his incredibly popular bestseller, Why Buddhism is True. In this book Robert introduces us to many Buddhist ideas, teaches us why there is no self to which we should feel attached, discusses how evolution has over-engineered us for the modern world, and how meditation can help with many facets of human life.
