    GREAT

    The most beatifula book I've read, and I have read hundreds on this subject. I am a western Buddhist, and this book gave me a better understanding of my practice. Shakyamuni Buddha is presented as he is... a spiritual master that all can identify with. As with all Thich Nhat Hanh books, beautifully written and understandable to all levels of intellect.

    This is unbeatable!

    Old Path White Clouds is the best biography and teachings of the Buddha up to date. It shows the teachings of the Buddha with great eloquence and wisdom. This is one of the best books ever published. If you are mildly interested in Buddhism, I still recommend this for you. Old Path White Clouds tells a universal story comparable to many others.

    Simple and Beautiful.

    Thich Nhat Hanh is a poet and a peacemaker. This book tells a story of love and compassion in a time of suffering and prejudice, showing the Buddha not as an unattainable concept or object of worship, but as a human being, as you and I. Just reading it evokes feelings of love and calm.
