Nhat writes about how to obtain mindfulness which is within each person. He speaks of the frivolousness of "things" and how they will never make us mindful of ourselves and our actions. He uses simple metaphors and basic descriptions to teach psychology and the Buddhist way. If you were sitting at a table with a bowl of soup in front of you, Nhat would encourage you to savor the properties of the meal - the smell, the taste, the feeling of warmth, the colors, the bowl, the utensil, etc. This is part of being mindful. This is a great book for those who are interested in meditation, psychology and Buddhist teachings. One of the poems that Nhat includes in his book is below and explains his teachings very well.

"Please call me by my true names,
so I can wake up,
and so the door of my heart can be left open,
the door of compassion."
