Mindfulness and Psychotherapy: Thich Nhat Hahn
A wonderful book for both professional and lay people. In these painful, fearful and stressful times, globally and in our personal lives,everybody needs to read this to learn to find peace and sanctuary in the present moment. I have experienced bereavement, a major spinal operation, and a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis to contend with all within a twelve months. Thich Nhat Hanh brought me through this and I promise he will do this for you to.

Would you consider the audio edition of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy to be better than the print version?
I love this authors narration, his voice and his accent are so gentle and always helps me to feel better just hearing his kind and calm voice. I have no problems understanding his speech, maybe because my grandma had a similar accent. His voice and way of speaking is very pleasant and if you need immediate comfort in a difficult situation, I recommend this audio version of this book highly....
Any additional comments?
Thich is my favorite all time author besides Sogyal Rinpoche (of the eastern tradtions)-

Expectations interfere ...
Expectations interfere with appreciation of the present.
It is to be regretted that the previous two reviewers had difficulty understanding the speech of Thich Nhat Hanh in this recording.
Our speaker begins with the recommendation: "The practice of buddhist meditation ... is to get the capacity to enjoy peace ... ", and he continues, to say that often we miss the present moment because we are looking for something else. The previous reviewers might have found benefit in taking that to heart.
I would suggest that the previous reviewers might learn from their experience, benefit from the opportunity, by resting in awareness of their struggle with the speech sounds of Thich Nhat Hanh, so they might relax out of that struggle, and find peace and openness to the realities of the moment, the moment in this case being the excellent teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh. As long as one gives one's awareness to the barrier, the difficulty, that is what one will know. That difficulty, that struggle, is not necessary; by bringing struggle to the relationship, one's awareness of the relationship is dominated by the experience of one's own contribution of struggle.
Ironic, that the previous reviewers' need of the teachings interfered with their hearing of the teachings. In such a situation, one might stop trying, stop projecting whatever attempt to understand is not being successful, and rest a few moments in peaceful openness, in simple receptivity, before playing the recording again. Let effort and struggle subside, let the activities of the thinking mind subsite, and receive the teachings with an open heart.
A teacher cannot teach; only, a student can learn.
