Thich Nhat Hanh is the father of Buddhism in the West, and I was expecting this audio book to detail his life and his teachings. Unfortunately, it didn’t hit the mark for me.
The first section, which I was hoping would explore Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings, mostly focused on the author’s journey into Buddhism, rather than Buddhism and mindfulness itself.
The soundscape, a ‘relaxing’ mindfulness journey consisted of a few bells, a bit of chanting, Benedict Cumberbatch narrating a few quotes and lots of silence.
It was all very pleasant for free, but I’m sure I’d feel different if I’d paid the cover price.
Book supplied by Netgalley for an honest review.
