Peace Is Every Breath: A Practice for Our Busy Lives Reviews
If you want to read this book, I recommend performing a google and find the free .pdf file. It is freely available online to download. Personally, it is not worth paying money to read. Its nothing new that hasn't been said before about being mindful while brushing teeth, and watching the breath, watching thoughts. For anyone new to meditation and mindfulness it would have value.

This is a very good book to start with for people who are interested in Mindfulness. If you like Thay's teachings, you can't miss it.
Great Buddhist principles to apply to everyday life to start embracing a healthier way of living! Great book!
Nice ideas, but I felt that it read like a self-help article in a magazine - over-simplified and casual.
I want to live more mindfully and I try to have an open mind about it. I like the concept, but I can't get into Thich Nhat Hanh. I find myself thinking the emperor has no clothes...he's just a brand.
The passages were hot or miss for me. Some very powerful, some not so much.
major epiphany after reading this book...highly recommend!
I'm not rating this as I feel it is one of those books that can mean more to you in a couple of years time, when you pick out a special chapter and re-read.
So I'm just going to give you my impressions of the first read:
+Short, clear chapters, most on practical every day stuff
+All the parts about dealing with (what I would call) negative feelings
+The Five Precepts added in the back for good measure
+The dutch edition I have looks very attractive, like a real gift to yourself or a loved one
