Narrator Dan Woren adopts a conversational style to deliver Nhat Hanh's philosophy that happiness, peace, and well-being, favored by Buddhist monks, are found in the practice of silence—not silence as the absence of sound but as targeted listening that leads to the quieting of the mind. In a firm, evenly modulated tone, Woren guides listeners through Nhat Hanh's breathing techniques and mindfulness exercises into the "stillness" that the author considers a necessary aspect of silence. Nhat Hanh explores other characteristics of inner calm such as learning to listen for the sounds of leaves rustling in the wind, the wondrous sounds of birds chirping, and other sounds found in nature. Woren captures Nhat Hanh's practical and simple-to-implement guide, which teaches listeners the power of quiet and how to live in the present moment.
