    In his travels around the country and the world, Zen master and international best-selling author Thich Nhat Hanh witnessed a growing unhappiness among the many people he encountered. He saw the hectic pace of our day-to-day lives taking a toll on our health and well-being. In response, the renowned teacher sat down to write Peace Is Every Breath, a book that makes the core teachings of Buddha accessible for everyone.

    Would you try another book from Thich Nhat Hanh and/or Dan Woren?

    Thich Nhat Hanh, definitely. Dan Woren probably not, unless it seemed the type of book well-suited to his voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a follower of Thich Nhat Hanh's writings and teachings, and have fund his other books so inspiring. Why did this one leave me underwhelmed? I suspect it may have to do with the narrator, who's voice just seemed all wrong for a Thich Nhat Hanh book. I much prefer when Thich Nhat Hanh reads his own work, but if that wasn't possible, a Buddhist nun or monk would have been a better choice for narrator. Dan Woren sounds too much like a radio announcer or TV news anchor; not the right voice for this book. Maybe I would have felt differently about it if I had read the hard copy, but this is not one I would recommend to friends.
