    Beautifully Written, Scholarly, Practical

    As a beginning student of Buddhism I find this book most helpful. The book contains a wealth of basic information on the essential Buddhist teachings, clearly presented. The author's style reflects the compassion and intellect of the Buddha. I continue re-reading this book, as a resource to clarify questions which come up in other books on Buddhism.

    Truly Liberating

    This book is beautifully written. It is concise and the concepts clearly and logically explained. It neither preaches nor condescends. As I study and meditate on the teachings I find a bit more beauty, color and happiness in everything.

    Life Changing!

    I bought this book because I was interested I the Buddhist religion. As I read this book I found out that it is not a religion, but a grouping of teachings to free your mind. You are not meant to blindly believe what you are told, but to ask questions so as to have a deeper understanding. I highly recomend this book. It is easy to read & follow as well.

    I think this is a remarkable book; well worth time spent reading

    I think this is a remarkable book; well worth time spent reading it. So well written with clear information on Buddhist basics. I always recommend to anyone interested in Buddhism and looking for a good place to start. Sure wish the publisher would ePublish this book! I think Thich Nhat Hahn is a wonderful teacher.

    more from this reviewer

    He is my favorite author

    If you have never read a book by Thich Nhat Hanh you would truly benefit by doing so. I am a practicing Presbyterian, but Buddhism interests me as well. He compares Christianity with Buddhism in several of his books. This book will help you to understand as do his others, that we are in control of our suffering.

    Read again and again

    This is an exceptional book by any standard. Universal, expansive in scope, it hits the heart of the human condition in an uncommon and beautiful way. Not just for novice Buddhists, it speaks to anyone with a heart and a conscience, transcending religion, politics and other boundaries to living a life of purpose and meaning.
