Featuring occasional line drawings of people at rest, trees, animals, and more in a soothing purple tone, well-known Vietnamese Buddhist monk and author Hanh's little guide to surviving modern life is practical and welcome. Published by the not-for-profit press the author founded, the book presents gentle advice in two parts: "Notes on Relaxing," which reminds readers that rest is necessary and natural, and "Meditations for Resting and Relaxing," which offers instructions and poems for achieving tranquility. Throughout, Hanh delivers simple, kind words of wisdom that will work as well for children as for adults; his meditations don't require any equipment or special location to complete, and they are short, making them ideal for modern worriers. VERDICT A wonderful addition to spirituality shelves.—Henrietta Verma, Library Journal
