"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal inner peace and peace on earth."--His Holiness the Dalai Lama
"Thich Nhat Hanh writes with the voice of the Buddha."--Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
"365 pithy teachings. . . . In the editor's preface, Melvin McLeod suggests reading them slowly, maybe one or two a day, in order to savor and digest them more fully. This is excellent advice, but whenever I sit down with the book, I find myself reading 'just one more' and 'just one more' again."--Shambhala Sun
"What I most appreciate in this little book is how each passage cuts directly through to the heart of the matter. The selections are simple, profound, and meaningfully applicable to everyday life in today's world."--New Spirit Journal
"Melvin McLeod has done a wonderful job of compiling one year's worth of Hanh's teachings. Each reading is short: none is more than a half page in length and most are shorter. Yet each contains a potent seed capable of transforming a day or even a lifetime if allowed to take hold and grow. If the world could practice what Hanh preaches, I believe the major problems facing our world today could be resolved."--San Francisco Book Review
