Publisher's Summary

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.

In this jewel of a book, Thich Nhat Hanh does not suggest that we escape from reality and put our busy lives on hold. Far from it. Instead, he provides the insight and tools we need to incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how we can transcend the mad rush of our days and discover within the here and now our own innate ability to experience inner peace and happiness.

Offering personal anecdotes, meditations, and advice for mindfully connecting with our present experience, Thich Nhat Hanh guides us around potential pitfalls along the way. We do not need to escape reality to harness the joy and peace that is possible with every breath we take. The power of mindfulness can heal us from the suffering caused by the many stresses that surround us. Peace Is Every Breath is a timely book filled with timeless wisdom and practical advice that is destined to become a classic.

First time I've been disappointed in a TNH book

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.

Pocket-Sized Buddhism; Good for Re-Reading

Any additional comments?

In this title, Hanh compiled a good summary of Buddhist principles, packaged in practices you can exercise in daily life. These practices are simple and effective for reducing stress and increasing awareness in modern times.<br/><br/>Woren's narration is perfectly adequate for the title.<br/><br/>I have listened to this title multiple times; it's short duration is perfect for those brief periods in the calendar where you're waiting for your next credit but don't want to launch into something large.

Contemplative and inspiring

The first book I've had of Thich Nhat Hanh. I learned about the importance of being mindful, even in the busyness of our modern lives. Its lessons are timeless and practical, regardless of your spiritual beliefs. Highly recommended, particularly if you are prone to the recklessness of immediate emotional outbursts and instant gratification.
