While at times when I read this book, I thought, "That's a little corny"...I also bought into it at the same time.

This book has given me a new way of thinking about things--at least to try thinking about things before letting bad feelings overcome me. ( )

This book offers profound wisdom about life. However, you should not expect a Western style "how to" steps in it. You realize that you should have a discipline to practice what is written. Still, I am glad I read it and bought a copy to keep it for the rest of my life. ( )

I loved this book. It's a good one to go back to and dip into at intervals. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0553351397, Paperback)

Thich Nhat Hanh's writing is deceptive in its subtlety. He'll go on and on with stories about tree-hugging or metaphors involving raw potatoes; he'll tell you how to eat mindfully, even how to breathe and walk; he'll suggest looking closely at a flower and to see the sun as your heart. As the Zen teacher Richard Baker commented, however, Nhat Hanh is "a cross between a cloud, a snail, and piece of heavy machinery." Sooner or later, it begins to sink in that Nhat Hanh is conveying a depth of psychology and a world outlook that require nothing less than a complete paradigm shift. Through his cute stories and compassionate admonitions, he gradually builds up to his philosophy of interbeing, the notion that none of us is separately, but rather that we inter-are. The ramifications are explosive. How can we mindlessly and selfishly pursue our individual ends, when we are inextricably bound up with everyone and everything else? We see an enemy not as focus of anger but as a human with a complex history, who could be us if we had the same history. Suffice it to say, that after reading Peace Is Every Step, you'll never look at a plastic bag the same way again, and you may even develop a penchant for hugging trees. --Brian Bruya
