Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh is a well-known master of mindfulness, a beloved friend of the late Martin Luther King Jr. and author of several spiritually minded books, including a series of "How to" books. "How to Love", "How to Sit", "How to Walk", "How to Eat", and now the national and regional best-seller "How to Fight".  Illustrations by Jason DeAntonis accompany pages describing how our actions, words, beliefs & perceptions must be gently adjusted to build healthier relationships in our personal and public lives.  Hanh guides readers to not run away from conflict, working with and through suffering to achieve our understanding of ourselves and others.  In an excerpt from the page "Victim Number Two", Hanh explains that when a "person does not know how to handle their own suffering, they remain the first and biggest victim of their suffering. You are only victim number two."  The book "How to Fight" will teach readers to better manage and articulate the disagreements in their lives with graceful engagement, opening up the inner and outer pathways to more peaceful experience.  These titles can be found on the bookshelves of many locals, and "How to Fight" is now the latest to make the rounds! Small, pocket-sized, and paperback, these lovingly crafted books make wonderful gifts for friends and loved ones.
