Additional Notes

From The Publisher*It was under the bodhi tree in India twenty-five centuries ago that Buddha achieved the insight that three states of mind were the source of all our unhappiness: wrong knowing, obsessive desire, and anger. All are difficult, but in one instant of anger-one of the most powerful emotions-lives can be ruined, and health and spiritual development can be destroyed. With exquisite simplicity, Buddhist monk and Vietnam refugee Thich Nhat Hanh gives tools and advice for transforming relationships, focusing energy, and rejuvenating those parts of ourselves that have been laid waste by anger. His extraordinary wisdom can transform your life and the lives of the people you love, and in the words of Thich Nhat Hanh, can give each reader the power to "change everything."
From The Publisher*In one instant of anger, lives can be ruined and years of spiritual development destroyed. According to modern medical science, anger can also ruin our health. Anger is one of the most difficult emotions to deal with - but it can be dealt with, and can be overcome. With his trademark exquisite simplicity, Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh gives tools and advice for those transforming relationships and rejuvenating the parts of ourselves that have been laid waste by anger. Now in paper.
Review Quote*"Hanh doesn't limit his task to discussing anger between families and friends; he also deals with anger between citizens and governments. That expansive vision is not surprising (Hanh, after all, is a Nobel Peace Prize nominee) but it is refreshing, lifting this book out of the self-absorbed, self-help pile."-Publishers Weekly

"Reminding us that small spiritual matters are really large spiritual matters, the author offers wisdom and serenity to comfort readers as they work through anger to a place of 'being peace.'"-Library Journal
