I love this book so much! I've read it several times and it always serves to calm me, help me see myself more clearly, and be at peace with all that life brings.
Love this book. I like its in-depth discussion about wabisabi philosophy. It is not taught in school! I am already in the process of becoming im-perfectionist! :) Highly recommended if you want to improve your life as a whole. ;)
As a 14-year old boy, the author received teachings from his grandmother on Wabi sabi. In this book he describes this exchange and includes some quotations from a variety of sources as a way to obliquely define the term.
What a great book. I am learning how to live without perfectionism and this is a wonderful book to help me see a new way of doing that. Wabi Sabi is such a wonderful concept and way of looking at the world.
Taro Gold puts life up front and center .. The mystical in the moment.. In his words, "Wabi Sabi fosters a bohemian sense of beauty that celebrates the basic, the unique, and the imperfect."

Awesome little book about simple wisdom of everyday living finding the perfect in imperfection. A must read for minds that hunger for a deeper meaning in life.
The concepts are great, but this should have been an article rather than a book. Very repetitive.
brilliant...calming, will most def read again and again, esp when i'm feeling out of sorts.
