About this audiobook

Zen master Thick Nhat Hanh, bestselling author of Peace is Every Step and one of the most respected and celebrated religious leaders in the world, delivers a powerful path to happiness through mastering life's most important skill.

How do we say what we mean in a way that the other person can really hear?

How can we listen with compassion and understanding?

Communication fuels the ties that bind, whether in relationships, business, or everyday interactions. Most of us, however, have never been taught the fundamental skills of communication—or how to best represent our true selves. Effective communication is as important to our well-being and happiness as the food we put into our bodies. It can be either healthy (and nourishing) or toxic (and destructive).

In this precise and practical guide, Zen master and Buddhist monk Thick Nhat Hanh reveals how to listen mindfully and express your fullest and most authentic self. With examples from his work with couples, families, and international conflicts, The Art of Communicating helps us move beyond the perils and frustrations of misrepresentation and misunderstanding to learn the listening and speaking skills that will forever change how we experience and impact the world.

Editor's Note

Communication is key…

This powerful tome by revered Buddhist monk and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh is full of positive aphorisms, which reveal that intentionality is the key to effective self-expression.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh (pronounced tik-not-hawn) waas a world-renowned writer, scholar, spiritual leader, and Zen Buddhist monk. Since the age of sixteen, he was a Buddhist monk, a peace activist, and a seeker of the way. He survived three wars, persecution, and more than thirty years of exile from his native Vietnam, when he was banned by both the non-Communist and Communist governments for his role in undermining the violence he saw affecting his people. He was the master of one of the most prominent temples in Vietnam, and his lineage is traceable directly to the Buddha himself. A prolific author, Nhat Hanh has written more than one hundred books of philosophy, poetry, and fiction. Nhat Hanh lived in a monastic community in southwestern France that he founded, called Plum Village, recognized as the main inspiration for engaged Buddhism. He died in January 2022 at the age of 95.
