About the Author:

Thich Nhat Hanh has been a Buddhist monk since the age of sixteen. He has survived three wars, persecution, and more than thirty years of exile. He is the master of a temple in Vietnam whose lineage goes back more than two thousand years and is traceable to Buddha himself. He is the author of more than one hundred books of poetry, fiction, and philosophy including Anger and Living Buddha, Living Christ.

From Publishers Weekly:

Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh has authored three national bestsellers that deal with negative emotions: Anger, Going Home and No Death, No Fear. Here he distills some of the best quotations from those three books, offering advice on how to conquer rage, jealousy, fear and the desire for revenge. Often the thoughts are just a sentence long, and rarely more than three; the book is designed to be savored over time through deep reflection. Some of Hanh’s suggestions are practical (such as walking to diffuse anger or writing a love letter to a cherished individual), while others will require more rumination. One key to reducing anger, for example, is to practice "deep looking" and recognize that all beings are interconnected; the angry person is inextricably intertwined with the one she imagines is her enemy. Though spare, even Spartan, this book holds seeds of profound wisdom. However, more serious readers will want to delve into the three classics that this book draws upon, since they are already accessible, brief and easy to understand.
