Thich Nhat Hanh's gentle anecdotes and practical exercises focus the reader's attention on breathing and show that the contextx for being mindful are numerous and close at hand - washing the dishes, answering the telephone, drinking tea. His compassionate spirit and the method of meditation described here will help both beginners and advanced students arrive at greater self-understanding and peacefulness. --- from book's back cover
