"If your house is on fire, the most urgent thing to do is to go back and try to put out the fire, not to run after the person you believe to be the arsonist. If you run after the person you suspect has burned your house, your house will burn down while you are chasing him or her. That is not the action of a wise person. You must go back and put out the fire. When you are angry, if you continue to interact with or argue with the other person, if you try to punish him or her, you are acting exactly like someone who runs after the arsonist while their home goes up in flames."

Hanh, Thich Nhat. Taming the Tiger Within: Meditations on Transforming Difficult Emotions (p. 106). Penguin Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.

I came across this book at the local store and started reading the first few pages. An hour later I was quite engulfed into the pages and the words that really spoke out to me. I forced myself to set the book down and ended up buying it on Amazon the next day.

Taming the Tiger Within is a unique and humbling verse to what most popular magazines and books try to hint towards: the avoidance of bad and the monument of changing one''s self. However, Taming the Tiger Within isn''t focusing on these modern-day and sometimes self-destructive concepts that try to avoid our own faults. Thich Nhat Hanh has given readers the conduit to empower ourselves to be mindful rather than scared, embrace rather than avoid, and to understand what we fear most; the unknown.

This book isn''t for someone wanting to ''fix'' themselves or ''change'' aspects of themselves. This book is meant to make you aware of certain forms of emotions and habits. Anger is a theme that all of us as humans can empathize with. Rather than avoiding or changing our own ''anger'', Thich Nhat Hanh discusses how we must become mindful of our anger and understand it rather than act irrationally to an anger that we ourselves do not quite fully understand. The messages within this book resonated with me as I have started to become more mindful and embrace the concept that anger or harm against one is anger or harm against one''s self.

Taming the Tiger Within brings the reader to the present moment and to help the reader acknowledge anger and strong emotions and to understand them. After reading this book I feel I have a better understanding of my own emotions; therefore, having a better grasp upon them. We are all scared of the unknown and this book has helped me understand my unknowns; the root of strong emotions such as anger and how to understand it to better deal with it.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about their emotions and how to understand what causes them. The words on the pages display many meanings to each person and I can guarantee this book will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take-on the worst of Mondays.

Buddhism in my opinion often tend to be very impractical to live in the modern world. The less the principles of kindness and compassion I think coupled with stoicism and that being a good way to make oneself and others happy

This book has been helpful to me and to my clients. Working with people struggling with violent emotions, pain, anger, betrayal, heart break, trauma, and abuse. This book touches the spirit and goes beyond the mind and into the heart. All clients I have shared this book with have obtained their own copies and have read it. This is an important book because it is understandable, and is not overwhelming or academic. It offers hope through identifying what is true for all people and through this truth readers are encouraged toward a new way of being in thought, feeling, and action (or non action) that promotes well being and health.

As the Buddhists remind us, expectations always lead to disappointment. My expectation of this book was that it would be a fully-written text, with analysis and stories. This lead to disappointment when I received it, only to find that it was small thoughts, one line per page, for meditative purposes. I felt a bit cheated, as if the publishers were trying to leverage the cost of a book for a collection of lines. However, I turned it around, by giving the book as a gift to a friend of mine who is going through a divorce. I offered it to him as a series of meditations to help him with his difficult emotions. He was grateful, as he does not have the attention span right now to dig into dense content (which was what I was craving!). Everything happens for a reason.
