Customer reviews

I read this when it was first bought for me in 1997. I've read it again and again across the years even though it's rare that I re-read a book. But this work is a classic. Thich Nhat Hanh writes so simply and elegantly that one could be reading a children's story, and yet it covers the complexities of the Buddha's life according to the Vietnamese Zen tradition. The text correlates with more brief accounts of the Buddha's life and because of it's style makes the narrative easy to remember. Not only would I recommend - I've bought this book for friends. A great read and a spiritual experience! Enjoy!show more
