A gentle, heartfelt invitation... 9 Sept. 2007
By Anonymous - Published on
Format: Paperback
I finished this book yesterday and promptly went out and bought several more copies to give to non-Buddhist friends and family. Ethan Nichtern provides a warm, human, accessible perspective on how to live an engaged, connected life. The book is infused with wisdom but never preachy or arrogant. Nichtern simply shares his own experiences and observations, along with ideas from Buddhism and Buddhist teachers, in a way that invites the reader to take whatever resonates and to find his or her own way of applying it. I recommend this book for anyone interested in Buddhism, being socially aware and responsible, or just feeling more grounded and engaged in life and his or her community. I read it slowly to savor it, was sad when it was over, and know I'll read it many more times.

Well-written, accessible and timely 7 Aug. 2007
By A reader - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nichtern does a great job examining the principle of interdependent existence at length, expertly weaving in illustrative personal anecdotes. He also addresses contemporary cultural, political and economic currents in context. It's a well-written and timely addition to a vital conversation.

Simply Powerful 27 Oct. 2007
By Free Spirit - Published on
Format: Paperback
One City: A Declaration of Interdependence by Ethan Nichtern is a short but poignant book that discusses the interconnectedness of everyone on the planet - how small, daily choices affect the whole earth in ways we might not even imagine. Nichtern is a young guy who offers a sort of hip, fresh perspective on an increasing problem here in the west. His writing comes from a Buddhist perspective, but is for anyone concerned with social responsibility and personal growth. I highly recommend it!

A new perspective 14 Aug. 2007
By Christine L. Peterson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I know any Buddhism book is good if it makes me think and helps me to feel grounded. One City does both. It provides new perspective on responsible consumerism and the quest for understanding in these times of international turmoil. I look forward to more writing from Ethan in the future.

Fast-paced, succinct and intelligent 13 Sept. 2007
By princesstonton - Published on
Format: Paperback
A great, well-written and accessible book. As someone who appreciates good writing, I have to say that the segues are particularly well done. This accounts for the incredibly fluid and logical flow as the book transitions from one topic to the next.

The topics themselves can be abstract and hard to grasp, but Ethan's exploration and explanation of them make it almost effortless to understand. He uses many concrete, modern day issues and examples to illustrate age-old concepts that could easily have been written out in a vague, fortune-cookie style way. It is very easy to relate to the ideas presented in his book.

It's a fast read and I highly recommend it!
