“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…Though spare, even Spartan, this book holds seeds of profound wisdom.”

— Publishers Weekly
