“Among Buddhist leaders influential in the West, Thich Nhat Hanh ranks second only to the Dalai Lama.” —New York Times

“Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man…. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.” —Martin Luther King, Jr., nominating Thich Nhat Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.

In this much-anticipated follow-up to his bestselling classic, Peace Is Every Step, Thich Nhat Hanh—one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today—offers an insightful guide to living a fuller life. In this deeply insightful meditation, the world-renowned Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master, poet, scholar, and peace activist illuminates how each of us can incorporate the practice of mindfulness into our every waking moment. In the tradition of The Art of Happiness and Living Buddha, Living Christ, Thich Nhat Hanh’s Peace Is Every Breath opens a pathway to greater spiritual fulfillment through its patient examination of how we live our lives.

Listener Opinions

    " I did and did not like this one, so it gets a meh rating. On the one hand, I like the writing style with its Rumi-esque meditations in there. On the other, I was kind of hoping for a little bit more oomph or specific advice for things to try to help add that spiritual dimension in there. Or at least a little bit more grounding on what zen is supposed to be about in case people were wondering. It comes off as being sort of generically spiritual instead of genuine with the way it's written. OK book, though I would say if you're really wanting more of that deep-spiritual-poetic thing going on you should check out some of the Rumi books instead. "

    " Always loving, always practical, that's why I love Thich Nhat Hanh. It's spirituality I can apply to daily life, principles that make such sense, that I shouldn't need to remind myself of them on a daily basis, and yet I do. I can't think of a more compassionate teacher than this Vietnamese Buddhist monk! "
