Thich Nhat Hanh writes beautifully.
It is not a short book but its structure and style maintain the reader's interest over the course of story, and one may be tempted to say that it reads like a novel.
It's a book I would highly recommend to anyone who would like to gain a better understanding of Buddhism.
This is a huge book but well worth it. TNH tells a lean and engaging versions of the Buddhas story. Goes quick and I am not a big long-book reader.Published 23 days ago by Shawn

Simply written yet poetic and inspiring. A book a young person can read and appreciate. I've read other books by Thich Nhat Hanh but this is the only book of his I own. Read morePublished 1 month ago by dee

This book was a more scholarly review of the tenets of Buddhism. I already know quite a bit about Buddhism, so was not that interested. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Nancy Lamers
