Summary Power is one of the central issues in our lives. From work to personal relationships, the struggle for power plays a pivotal role and more often than not prevents us from attaining freedom and happiness. Peace activist and spiritual teacher Thich Nhat Hanh illustrates how our current understanding of power leads us on a never-ending search for external markers like job title or salary. This me-first approach to life may have originated in the business world, but the stress, fear, and anxiety it causes are being felt by all of us, every day. Turning the conventional understanding on its head, Nhat Hanh teaches us that true power comes from within, and that what we seek we already have.--From publisher description.
