In our fast paced world, this book is wonderful for taking a meditative approach throughout the day. For anyone who has been curious about Zen Buddhism, this is a great start for learning about its practices. From Zen sayings, to Zen painting, and flower arranging it provides some great slices for relaxation.
A good basic introduction to Zen practice. I recommend reading a chapter per week to give one time to absorb, contemplate and put into practice what is read. It's a resource for those looking for a brief overview in order to determine if further study is desired/warranted given its inherent disciplined approach to spirituality.
A touch over two years of slowly working through this book and I know now (I knew a while back) that I am not cut out to be a Buddhist. However, there are some amazing take-aways from the text, regardless. The sections on meditation, and some of the koans have helped me in my quest for more balance and self-understanding.
