Book Overview: How to Focus

The simple, refreshing meditations of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh give us the tools to cultivate concentration. Practicing mindfulness brings concentration, and concentration brings insight and understanding.

With our world experiencing the deep effects of loneliness, digital overload, and a proliferation of potential distractions, this pocket-sized How To book reminds us of the value of developing our concentration, so we can let go of misperceptions and cultivate the clarity of mind that is the basis for understanding ourselves, each other, and the world.

Written with characteristic simplicity and kindness, these wise meditations teach us that by practicing mindfulness in daily life, we are cultivating the power of concentration and fostering the conditions that bring insight, liberating us from misperceptions and misunderstanding.

The Mindfulness Essentials series is a back-to-basics collection from world-renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh that introduces readers to the essentials of mindfulness practice. All Mindfulness Essentials books are illustrated with playful sumi-ink drawings by California artist Jason DeAntonis.

"The monk who taught the world mindfulness."
--TIME

"Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal inner peace and peace on earth."
--His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity."
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Thich Nhat Hanh, globally recognized as a spiritual leader, Zen Master, and vocal peace activist, has dedicated his life to transforming suffering and promoting peace in individuals, communities, and the world. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a monk at the early age of 16, subsequently gaining recognition for his key role in initiating the "Engaged Buddhism" movement, merging traditional practices with modern societal and humanitarian concerns. Nhat Hanh's extensive body of work includes over 100 books on mindfulness, meditation, and Buddhism, with notable works such as "The Miracle of Mindfulness" and "Peace Is Every Step." His teachings emphasize the intricate interconnectedness of all life, offering transformative perspectives on dealing with anger, fostering compassion, and nurturing peaceful relationships. His compelling insights have significantly influenced the field of mindfulness in the West, earning him the title "The Father of Mindfulness." Beyond his writings, Thich Nhat Hanh founded the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, the epicenter of his humanitarian work. Known for his active opposition to the Vietnam War, he has strived for peaceful reconciliation and conflict resolution, even getting nominated by Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. Today, he remains a luminary figure, spreading insightful wisdom central to personal growth and universal peace.
