Very good book , this is my first of Thich's books , Was concerned of the language barrier but I had no problems understanding, so off to purchase another of Thich's books. Thank you.
Oh! forgot to mention the audio is a little echoe but fully understandable I think the talk is in a hall or similar but it's still worth rating of 4 out of 5 imho.

Balm to the ears and the soul

I could listen to Thich Nhat Hanh for ever. He has the most mellifluous and gentle voice and he is so thoughtful in his delivery.

This audiobook is a good introduction to mindfulness meditation and buddhism.
