This book does not provide easy answers to the issue of death; rather, Thich Nhat Hanh sets out to teach a new way of looking at life and thereby to affect how we view death. Adopting a new view of life is not something that happens quickly or easily - it may take many years of practice, and undoing our existing conditioning. However, the analogies and stories that he tells in this book have a beautiful simplicity about them that makes them memorable; I suspect that underneath their simplicity is a profundity that I have yet to appreciate. I love all of Thich Nhat Hanh's books that I have read so far - this is no exception.

Format: Paperback
The book offers a way to regard life that addresses the fear most people have of death. He says that our true being is not segmented by birth or death. It exists across space and time, manifesting only when causes and conditions are right. Nhat Hanh uses metaphors and simple illustrations to reveal that our human life is just a temporary manifestation, much like a wave on the ocean.

I really liked Thich Nhat Hanh's clear, pure and simple writing style, providing a view of death that teaches us about impermanence and the interbeing of all things. This is a great companion book to The Tibetan Book Of Living And Dying.

A little repetitive, but otherwise a wonderful explanation of a buddhist view of life and death.
It confirms the realisations I had before I learned that they were buddhist.
I think many people in many different circumstances - the dying, the infertile, those with no long term relationship, the atheist, those in any sort of difficult circumstance, would find comfort from this book.

truly inspirational, thought I'd read most of his books over the years but only just come across this one. The beauty of TNH is his ability to explain things in such a rational, pragmatic way that it makes sense to anyone from any religion or belief system.Read this!!

In his inimitable way, Thich Nhat Hanh guides us through wonder-filled meditative journeys to awaken to the reality of interbeing, not just conceptually but experientially. It is one thing to say "This table and I are one" and another to arrive at the profound insight of this oneness; only then can we really KNOW this connection in a deeply visceral way, so that it becomes our own reality. Gradually, we begin to realise that we have based our sense of reality on nothing more than flimsy concepts. Notions of birth and death, of coming and going, of being and non-being are seen for what they are: notions, ephemeral formations. Through realising the insubstantial nature of all concepts,we begin to loosen our grip on our identification with our body and personality, and instead discover our true identity in the indestuctible stream of life, the ground of our being beyond birth and death, beyond any duality. An excellent support for anyone wishing to look ahead to a good and peaceful death, but also for anyone wishing to live their lives joyfully and rewardingly.

This book 'found' me on the weekend just before I got the news of my father's passing. I was able to read it afterwards to come to some understanding of how to take it all in and be in a place of peace about what happened.
A couple of weeks later, I bought this book for a friend with terminal cancer, who was tired of receiving material from (well-intended) colleagues about miracle cures and breakthroughs, and need something to help him to deal with his impending mortality. Most people in his surrounding preferred to avoid that subject at all costs.
Most importantly, as another reviewer has already stated, this wonderful book gave me a a deeper and renewed perspective on 'living'. I already practice Buddhism, but the book came at an amazing time when I need more specific insight on the subject of living and dying.
It's really a one-of-a-kind book.

This book is really about questioning our view of life as having a beginning and an end.In fact all unexamined views that we hold without really questioning them are challenged.Wonderfully compassionate writing with personnal touches where he writes about the death of his mother .Our true being with no beginning or end is examined.Our continual dissatisfaction with life is explored and state of always wanting more.He also explains how to overcome these states of mind. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to explore the mystery of life and death and live in a such a way as to enjoy every moment we have on this wonderful planet
