Perhaps I'm biased, but to me anything written by Thich Nhat Hanh is worth it's weight in gold! So simple, yet so profound! He makes you think in slow motion, and by doing so, you come away feeling touched by Divinity. This is one person with whom I would love to meet and talk to for days.
Having gotten a Kindle for Christmas, I started on the Amazon trek of searching for books, and ran across this one. I had the suspicion that I might already have it in paper, so went searching through my bookcases.....I literally have a mountain of books by this man! So between what I have on my Kindle, and what I have in paper (which I will be re-reading) I'll always have Thich Nhat Hanh with me for some inspired reading. Wonderful, soul-easing, inspiring writing!!! Highly recommend it!!

Thich Nhat Hanh is the most amazing person alive. Just reading him is peaceful. This little book can be taken anywhere and is full of wonderful teachings from this Zen Master. He speaks to everyone, whether religious or not.

Whatever else I do, I am committed to being happier in 2013. I keep a copy on my desk at work and have purchased another for home. just open it anywhere when I have a free moment, and instantly feel better.
This book could be good for anyone, but especially for Buddhists.
It is very tiny and still readable -- and cute as all get out in visual appeal.

The ideas for maintaining mindfulness and staying in the moment are helpful, and relatable. But, as with everything I have read so far on the subject, it does not fully address the issues of anger and difficult emotions in a way that would help a person get through a physically and/or emotionally painful situation or experience. It floats above the surface, hovering on a merely theoretical plane. Unfortunately, I (and most people, I think) have to live life on earth, in a physical body, that suffers mightily and can't find a way to bridge the gap between the painful realities of our existence and the wishes that we could be able to "just be" in those moments.

if you're traveling and are space-conscious, or if you just like to carry with you a little reminder that everything is okay, this is a fabulous little friend. much like his other books, this one has succinct chapters with a single message.
