This was, without a doubt, one of the best books I have ever set my eyes on.

It has allowed me to awaken more deeper than ever before, and puts many things into perspective for the modern man.

I will be re-reading this many times and sharing it with friends and family.

She hasn't stopped reading it!! She keeps quoting the text. The author is a bit comedic. I keep hearing the sounds of stifled laughter coming from her.

HASH(0xa2cebe28) out of 5 stars sweet, simple, and clear March 13 2010
By mack paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thich Nhat Hanh was the first meditation teacher I ever read. I went on to explore the literature widely. I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I'd sort of dismissed him as too simplistic- kind of a Mr. Rogers for adults. In his writing there are no abstractions, none of the ambitious theorizing about "enlightenment." He sticks with very simple basics teachings of moment to moment awareness of the breath as a key to human happiness. In our very uncertain times he advises that we take our anger and fear and treat them with great care and tenderness so that we can relate to others with kindness and compassion. He is indeed a Mr. Rogers for adults, exactly the guy we unhappy adults need.

HASH(0xa2cf0474) out of 5 stars If you get one book on Buddhism, get this Sept. 26 2009
By Michael P. Maslanka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As always, the writing is fluid, spare and moving.If you have never read on the subject, this is a wonderful introduction. If you have, an excellent summary. His descriptions, especially of karma and nirvana, bring simplicity and understanding to difficult concepts. (Einstein was right:when you really understand something, you can make it simple.) He also shares numerous breathing meditations useful for us all.A book to be read again and again.

HASH(0xa2cf03e4) out of 5 stars What a wonderful book. Oct. 24 2009
By Eric Gross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Every page of You Are Here glitters with love, insight, and, best of all, practicality. I just love this book because from the very first page it goes to the very heart of the truly awakened life. Also Thich Nhat Hanh pulls no punches, He deals with struggle, pain, and the greatest challenges of life. He can do this with authority because he has lived every bit of it. Frankly, I do not consider myself a Buddhist, since I am, truly, a non-believer except for my own life directly lived, but this book speaks from this powerful voice. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.

HASH(0xa2cf045c) out of 5 stars Life changing Sept. 9 2010
By M. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am extraordinarily happy that I bought this book. The common sense approach is above and beyond my expectations. Hanh speaks to the reader as a teacher speaks to a student, "Here are things you can do to make your life better, go ahead, don't hesitate, you can do it." I have begun the practices Hanh preaches and can tell you already I have seen a difference in my life and the way others are around me. This was exactly what I was looking for and what I needed.

HASH(0xa2cf03b4) out of 5 stars Another GEM from The Master Oct. 8 2009
By Dr. Robert F. Tynan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thich Nhat Hanh provides another demonstration of his skills as a Buddhist master and story teller. "You Are Here" further explores the Dharma whilst entertaining the reader with relevant practice "tips" for both beginner and serious meditator alike."To me, the definition of hell is simple. It is a place where there is no understanding and no compassion." It is Thich Nhat Hanh's ability to simplify that is his great skill in inspiring us to strengthen our practice and clarify thorny concepts at the same time.
