    "Deeper teaching of the main thoughts of Buddhism"

    I would suggest reading one or two basic books on Buddhism before tackling this book. It is well written and gives great explanations of Buddhist concepts. I will defiantly be listening to this book again. There are many ideas that I need more time to absorb. I will also be getting more books from this author, excellent job.

    "Life changing book"

    Although I had started Zen meditation a little while ago, listening to Thay has really helped my practice and opened my eyes to a lot of awareness and mindfulness!

    Stumbled upon audio books a little while ago and I enjoy them now. I mostly listen to books related to science, Buddhism, and some fantasy.

    "Good traditional information on Buddhism"

    I found this audiobook version of this great book.

    This is a great source of information on Buddhist precepts & philosophy. It is delivered in a more traditional type language which can be a little harder to grasp and process so careful and slow listening is recommended. The narrator does a good job, though I would maybe have liked some more variation in his tone.

    I would say this is a more "advanced beginner" type book where a lot of information is well explained, in addition, now we start building upon some fundamental concepts. If this is your first experience with Buddism, take your time, do not rush listening as there is a lot here.

    Having a PDF version of some of the listings and interactions would be a great addition to this audiobook.

    "One of the very best..."

    One of the very best overviews of the Buddhist path available today. Written by one of the greatest contemporary Buddhist practitioners. This master of the Dharma shares the teachings and the action steps that if practiced will become a blessing of enlightenment to all sentient beings.

    "Buddhist Bible"

    I believe Thich Nhat Hanh is on a par with the Dalai Lama. That nominated Martin Luther King for the Nobel Peace Prize. I have read this at least four times. It's my favorite book on Buddhism. Excellent!
