    • This is a brief, but wonderful book with lots to teach. I finished it with about 20 earmarked pages to go back and review as I try to incorporate some of the lessons into daily life.


    • i love thich, and he seems to realy love teais is the third book i've read by him, and i have to admit, they are all blending into one, but it's a really good one - full of wisdom and sweetness.


    • I adored this book. It was a constant comfort and its beautiful voice helped me return to the present simply by reading it. It flows and its method of repetition helps to establish the thoughts and methods of meditation. As someone who suffers from anxiety and being present this has been a delight. I can't wait to read again.


    • Beautiful and very simple book about meditation, written in a gentle way that makes meditating seem like something joyful to do.


    • "We are like a boat crossing the ocean. If the boat encounters a storm and everyone panics, the boat will turn over. If there is one person in the boat who can remain calm, that person can inspire other people to be calm."


    • I liked this book! Very soothing, and thoughtful. It does repeat a bit, as others have mentioned, but I chose to consider it a guided meditation in written form. Reading a few pages per day and letting the words stay in my head gave me a lot.





    • Peace of Mind is a relaxing book full of wisdom. Thich Nhat Hanh’s voice is friendly and calm, and I found myself taking a few notes on some of his teachings. I think I will read this one again.


    • Am trying to be more mindful, not just in terms of meditation but in Everyday living. so the book's message and exercises really resonated with me.



    • Вместо да ме успокои, книгата ме изнерви. Всичко е бавно, баавно, бааааавно релаксиращо И колкото повече се повтаряше да съм спокойна и да дишам, толкова по-неспокойна ставах. Честно казано даже не знам как авторът е успял да разтегне информация колкото за някоя статия в жен [...]


    • ''When you take good care of yourself and reduce suffering in yourself, you are helping other people. When you're able to generate peace with every step, the whole world profits.''Simple yet beautiful guide to a mindful living. Reading it feels almost like you're attending one of Master Hanh's lectures. He encourages the reader to live in the here and now by suggesting many practical exercises. You get to learn how to follow your breath, be aware of your body and be at peace with it or how to em [...]


    • I found this book to very illuminating. It is very easy to live in one's head consumed by worries and stress and not be fully present. This book gives some ways to live mindfully in the present moment. I liked these two things"The past is no longer with us and the future is not yet here; only in the present moment are the wonders of life available.""When you take good care of yourself, you are helping other people. When you're able to generate peace with every step, the whole world profits."


    • I really want to give this book more than two stars, but alas I cannot.I think this is the 3rd book by Thich Nhat Hanh that I have read. I found my experience to be like the other two.However I am thinking the problem is me, as the majority of people gush over his books. Don't get me wrong, each one that I have read has had some real pearls of insight that make you stop and take notice. Yet I always find his books to be repetition of what was written in the first couple of chapters. My eyes star [...]


    • In gratitude, I bow to all generations of ancestors in my blood family.In gratitude, I bow to all generations of ancestors in my spiritual family.In gratitude, I bow to this land and all of the ancestors who made it available.In gratitude and compassion, I bow down and transmit my energy to those I love.In understanding and compassion, I bow down to reconcile myself with all those who have made me suffer.I have arrived. I am homeIn the here, in the now.I am solid. I am free.In the ultimate, I dw [...]


    • Thich Nhat Hanh is one of my favourite authors on Buddhist teachings and concepts. In Peace of Mind, Thich reminds us that our mind and body are integrated, and only when reunite body and mind, will we be fully present for ourselves and others. Thich offers practices to cultivate awareness, mindfulness, concentration and insight. Definitely a book to be read and re-read. Glad that it's my first book for 2015.


    • I felt like this book maybe had 2 points and just repeated it over and over again throughout every chapter using different words.It just didn't inspire or enlighten me in the way I had hoped and wouldn't recommend it to anyone if I'm honest.Don't get me wrong, I completely agree with what it is trying to teach the reader I just felt like the teachings could have been described in more detail and in a more inspirational way? I don't know it just wasn't what I expected.


    • This book has changed my life. Thich Nhat Hanh has a way of speaking to the heart in a simple yet profound way. It's a book of meditation, comfort, and knowing how to bring peace to yourself so that you can be an outlet of peace in the world.


    • this was an amazing read. It remembered me to be present and just to be thankful for being here today and experiencing life. I will definitely read more of Thic Nhat Hanh's books. Truly inspiring. v




    • Simple and profound. The source of mindfulness is attention to the mind and body and attention is best gained by being mindful of the breath.


    • I really enjoyed it and i actually feel much better. Im going to keep trying the techniques and hopefully get some positive results. So far so good.


    • Simple and helpful in developing mindfulness. Enjoyed it every much--definite Buddhist point of view, but not so much that it detracts from the journey.
