I dig Thich Nhat Hanh's writing as well though I've not read as much of his work as I would like (only have a couple of his books, haven't finished them).

It does seem sometimes that what makes it to the west is less, I don't know, caring, maybe? Not sure I'm doing the sentiment justice. Things like the "enlightenment stick" and the master who "punched his student so hard he found enlightenment." I have it in my head that's Zen tradition, but I may be remembering it wrong.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the book. I think I'll read (finish?) The Miracle of Mindfulness now that I've got Hanh on the brain. That is, if I can pause trying to get Maya up to level 72 before September (BL3!!).
