How to Fight Reviews

  • Lorna

    I love these little books. They are deceptively easy to read and have the sweetest illustrations.

    This book has practical and easy to implement help with reconciliation and peace in our daily lives.

  • Freesiab (Bookish Review)

    If you’re new or not to Buddhist concepts, this little book is a great reminder on how to stay human when everyone around you does not. I picked this up at Powell’s at the Portland Airport and I’m glad I did! It’s a quick little book read that carries some pretty heavily important concepts on how you control you during a conflict. Excellent book!

    A friend gave me How to Walk which I enjoyed, so I picked this up from the library on impulse, then bought a copy to keep. I was surprised at how directly it spoke to me about managing feelings of anger and replacing them with compassion, for yourself and for others. It operates as a parenting book, family therapy, workplace conflict resolution, meditation guide, etc. Get a copy for your rage-filled friends.

    Much like the others in this How To Series; small book much wisdom.

  • Mary

    I need to re-read this twice a day.

    It is all about mindfulness and self-awareness. "How to Fight" by Thich Nhat Hanh talks about in order to understand others, first we must look deeper into ourselves and try to understand ourselves. Although I am aware of most of the ideas that were reflected in this book I think it was refreshing to be reminded of them once again. But hey what did I write in the first sentence of this very book review? Thus, I feel great reading this and so I am grateful to grab this book in the first place.

    It is all about mindfulness and self-awareness. "How to Fight" by Thich Nhat Hanh talks about in order to understand others, first we must look deeper into ourselves and try to understand ourselves. Although I am aware of most of the ideas that were reflected in this book I think it was refreshing to be reminded of them once again. But hey what did I write in the first sentence of this very book review? Thus, I feel great reading this and so I am grateful to grab this book in the first place.

    Here are some quotes that I admired from this short and concise book.

    "Nothing can survive without food - not even love. Without nourishment, your love will die." - Buddha

    "When we suffer, we have the tendency to blame other people and to see them as the source of our suffering. We don't recognize that we are responsible to some extent for our suffering as well as for making those around us suffer."

    Yeah I really like this quote above. We are partly responsible for our own suffering and misery. So before trying to put all the blame on other people it's crucial to take personal responsibilities and have compassion for others.

    "If you have not suffered, there is no way you can learn. We learn by making mistakes." - Buddha

    Another exceptional quote by the one and only Buddha! I highly doubt there is a single person who has not suffered in some shape or form though. I mean come on, honestly...

    "Everything is of the nature to change."

    You know what they say, the only thing permanent in this life is that everything is temporary. It sounds quite deep, right? Because it really is pretty deep. Basically what this quote is implying is the fact that since things and people are everchanging it's important to appreciate the present moment because "This too shall pass" (oh good old ring of king Solomon, here you come again, why are you stuck in my young mind?).

    "Hello, my emotion. I know you are there. I will take care of you."

    I don't know why but when I first read this quote I instantly thought about "Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk with you again"

    "To love someone means to understand them."

    Once again, one deep quote after another! How can this short read include so many deep quotes and thoughts in it? I assume never judge the book by its number of pages...lol.

    Lastly but not least. "Every one of us needs help"

    Whoever you are reading this. If you happen to need some help, I'm positive you do. I would highly recommend you give this book a shot. First of all, it is an easy read. Secondly you will definitely get something useful out of it. Finally you will feel better about yourself and your suffering. I promise

    I would re-title this book “How to fight with people you love.” In that context, Hanh gives excellent direction. However, these techniques are blind to power inequities and situations where people actively wish to manipulate you or do you harm. Employing these techniques against someone who is a bully or abusive, regardless of how much they are suffering, is a recipe to heap more pain on the targeted person. I can see this book doing real harm in those encounters. Hanh includes no acknowledgemen

    I would re-title this book “How to fight with people you love.” In that context, Hanh gives excellent direction.

Employing these techniques against someone who is a bully or abusive, regardless of how much they are suffering, is a recipe to heap more pain on the targeted person. I can see this book doing real harm in those encounters. Hanh includes no acknowledgement that sometimes the path to peace is acceptance that you cannot change the situation and must pull away to take care of yourself. That said, I think the book does have great utility in teaching one how to deal when friends and loved ones inflict hurt.
