Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Thich Nhat Hanh] is a holy man, for he is humble and devout…His ideas for peace…would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967
“His ability to see beyond dogma is in sharp contrast to the rigidity of certain Christian perspectives, a contrast Nhat Hanh discusses with respect and urgency.” Booklist
“ The book is marked by the beauty and simplicity of Thich's mindful wisdom, his evocative prose, and his lucid insights. Highly recommended. ” Library Journal
“Ben Kingsley reads with class. His British accent is never overbearing or intrusive. He's in command of the text all the way.” AudioFile
