Thich Nhat Hanh has a way of conveying his thoughts and ideas in a calm, reasonable and understandable manner that sits well with a lot of people. This book is a great tool for anyone looking into the practice of meditation and mindfulness.
This book was first released in 1999 and it covers the very basic of meditation, starting from the step one : focus on the breathing. Mastering the breathing is beneficial, as it's the root of meditation. It starts so simple and stays that way, teaching you to be present in every moment of every day and enjoy it. It's succinct, yet profound and it's a subtle how-to on Buddhism, breaking the myth that Buddhism is something complicated and abstract.
Along with explanations, practices included in this book are easily applicable in every moment of every day. It's the simplicity of a complex philosophy and approachable practices in this book that we adore and whole heartedly recommend to beginners as well as experienced practitioners.
