I love just about everything written by Thich Nhat Hanh, and this is no exception.

I hope those words stay with me for a long, long time.

Pretty standard stuff from Thich Nhat Hanh. Nothing new here, except some commentary from attendees at his retreat. Those just rendered the book too hippie for me.
