To whomever wrote the OPINION from the Library Journal, where you say that Thich Nhat Hanh's statements would not be very appealing to an audience "more sophisticated" than his "devoted followers". To you I say "You are partly right". And although this is the first book I have read by this author and thus cannot yet be considered a "devoted follower", I did graduate Magna Cum Laude with a Master's degree and have two post masters in psychology fields and am happy to say that I must count myself among the "unsophisticated " as I found the authors approach and suggestions refreshing compared to the "more sophisticated" but often unhelpful approaches touted by psychology "professionals". Sometimes the "unsophisticated", back to basics, approach is exactly what's needed. If a study was done to compare methods for outcomes, it might just be that Mr Hanh is at least "partly right" too.

In these tumultuous times, I cannot think of a more important skill to focus on than that of communication. When words and actions are all that we have to rely on to communicate to each other with, then why not try to do so with mindfulness and sincerity? Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese zen master and peace activist who has dedicated the majority of his life to creating a more compassionate world. If you, like many, want to foster better relationships and meaningful conversations then let The Art of Communicating be your guide!
