Not a book I’d recommend to many people, and I had a hard time getting into the e-book version because it’s a lot of instructions on how to be mindful when doing pretty much everything: eating, drinking, meditating, arguing with loved ones, working with a community, playing with children, etc. The audio version helped me see the book as a conversation with Nhat Hanh where he tells about an aspect of life, why it’s important to be mindful while doing it, and detailed practice tips on how to be mindful when doing that thing. I especially liked the mindfulness practices for children. Maybe it’s because I’m child-like but they helped me see that the frantic pace of adult life helps no one. Grade: B+
As for Ballerini, his narration was perfect. He is simply the best narrator for Thich Nhat Hanh.

Would you listen to Happiness again? Why?
A simple and practical approach to mindfulness. In "The Miracle of Mindfulness" I found a technique to mindful breathing--here it is expanded to mindful walking, mindful eating, and so on. It is a step toward loving kindness.With each step, "I am home."
What other book might you compare Happiness to and why?
Thich Nhat Hanh, "The Miracle of Mindfulness"
What does Edoardo Ballerini bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Beautiful narration. Great pace.
