In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercises as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness - being awake and fully aware. From washing the dishes to answering the phone to peeling an orange, he reminds us that each moment holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness.

"Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha." (Sogyal Rinpoche)
The narration was superb. He even brought life to the parts of the book that are rather repetitive.
Everything.He seemed to enjoy reading the book and that came through on the narration. Great intonation, volume, meter and phrasing.
Here the author talks you through basic and complex meditations. Unlike other books that talk about the meditations, here they are. At the end of the book the author has put a lot of meditation with each one being labeled for use when you need it. I recommend this book just for these meditations along with the wisdom contained with it. I would also recommend that the publisher include a PDF of all meditations be included or people buy the Kindle version to get them rather than searching all over the Internet for them.
Anything. It could not have been worse.
There were no characters.
I couldn't listen to it.
Say something about yourself!
It was insightful but a bit over repetitive. most memorable were the phases of mindfulness and application.
