“Followers and newcomers to Nhat Hanh’s teaching alike will find this collection inspiring for everyday practice and for social engagement in the world.”—Publishers Weekly

This collection of autobiographical and teaching stories from peace activist and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is thought provoking, inspiring, and enjoyable to read. Collected here for the first time, these stories span the author’s life. There are stories from Thich Nhat Hanh’s childhood and the traditions of rural Vietnam. There are stories from his years as a teenaged novice, as a young teacher and writer in war torn Vietnam, and of his travels around the world to teach mindfulness, make pilgrimages to sacred sites, and influence world leaders.

The tradition of teaching the Dharma through stories goes back at least to the time of the Buddha. Like the Buddha, Thich Nhat Hanh uses story–telling to engage people’s interest so he can share important teachings, insights, and life lessons.

TIMELY: Upon Thich Nhat Hanh’s passing, this book will be the go-to title for people wanting to understand the life of this global peace icon.

ICONIC: This book is the definitive biographical work on Thich Nhat Hanh. Of any book out there, it provides the most complete overview of his life and most important teachings.

LOWER PRICE: Now in paperback with an updated cover, the lower price should allow for it to reach a larger audience.

LARGE AND GROWING FOLLOWING: Thich Nhat Hanh’s influence only continues to grow. His followers span the globe.

BUSINESS USE: Many business communities from tech to finance have adopted Thich Nhat Hanh’s mindfulness practices.

MASS MARKET: He is quoted in publications from Wired to Psychology Today to Marie Claire.

FOR ALL READERS: These stories are accessible and entertaining for readers who are not versed in meditation or Buddhist practice.

Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most revered Zen teachers in the world today. His best–selling books include Be Free Where You Are and Peace of Mind. He lives in Plum Village in southwest France. Nhat Hanh has been teaching the art of mindful living for more than 70 years.
