True Love: A Practice for Awakening the Heart
Thich Nhat Hanh, , read by James Gimian. . Shambhala, $19.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-59030-654-3
Zen monk Nanh offers his insights into love as private emotion and public force in his thought-provoking guide to Buddhism's four key aspects of love. Narrator James Gimian, a Buddhist himself, relates Hanh's ideas with admirable clarity. However, listeners may find themselves struggling to get through the entire recording as Gimian's delivery is fairly monotonous. For those able to focus on the message rather than the medium, there is much to be gained by repeated listening.
