Very Informative

Pleasant to listen to. As a person looking to practice Zen Buddhism in my own life, the history and knowledge of Buddhism was great and easy to digest. The information on zazen meditation and how to incorporate Zen in my daily life will be very useful. I plan on revisiting this book often.

Great introduction to the Zen lifestyle.

Written simply and understandable with a spirit of kindness. Exactly what Zen has come to mean to me so far. I refer back to this book periodically as a way to refocus my efforts.
