Editorial Reviews

We all seek peace, but our quest for it is often thwarted by our own strong, untamed emotions. Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has spent all of his adult life pursuing these inner tigers. In books such as Living Buddha, Living Christ, and Anger, he has addressed spiritual problems that attack us and strike down our best intention. In Taming the Tiger Within, he distills the wisdom of his many books into short discourses and meditations on transforming anger, fear, jealousy, and other corrosive emotions.
