Old Path White Clouds presents the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha. Drawn directly from twenty-four Pali, Sanskrit, and Chinese sources, and retold by Thich Nhat Hanh in his inimitably beautiful style, this book traces the Buddha’s life slowly and gently over the course of eighty years, partly through the eyes of Svasti, the buffalo boy, and partly through the eyes of the Buddha himself. Old Path White Clouds is destined to become a classic of religious literature.

It is an educational book, it introduces The Buddha from a very young age until death, with the obstacles he faced on the path. By doing, people on the path get solace when they themselves to through obstacles. One main obstacle during these times for people who choose The Path, is the many voices within and without: family members, friends, teachers, etc. opposing to their path as it's hard for an outsider to see why one would choose such a path. This book answers such questions of doubt and blame throuh stories of skeptical people who faced Buddha. It also gives the teachings and repeats some of them as he repeats them- eslecially the suffering at the death of loved ones. Repetition is key in such difficult concepts. Wonderful work. the narrator did an excellent job keeping the story interesting .. smooth voice would help best "hear The Buddha". Thank you for a great work. p.s. do not expect much suspense and all the fancy stuff one would expect in a novel, you will see The Buddha as flawless, a criteria that would destroys interest in a novel. Remember it is an educational book.
