First off, I will admit I did not have much knowledge about Buddhism prior to reading this book. And I should add I am definitely not a religious person to say the least. I have my own personal beliefs but religion as a whole turns me off.
This book resonated so much with me. And yes it's tr ...more
This is a nice and somewhat innocent book. Being in the second half of my life, I find the author young.
The other thing I find with this book is that it doesn't address deep pains such as war, poverty, trauma, rape,genocide, loss, betrayal, etc.
The book would have been great for me to read when I was a teen. Overall, I hope he continues to write as he ages. Younger people can definitely benefit.
The anecdotes about Hawkeye's personal life is scattered throughout, and this creates a fascinating, sometimes jarring experience with his Zen teachings. I almost wish he wrote a straight-ou ...more

Buddhist Bootcamp is a catchy title that has website branding and an online community behind it’s origin. The idea being that a person should practice what they learn. I felt the title misrepresented the book in many ways. The book is simple and concise showcasing the author’s personal moments of enlightenment through brief thoughtful stories. The author ...more
While I agree with the premise that you can take any ideological view of the world and add zen, and just plain be better off, there is an un-addressed issue with the life style choice of the author - What if we ALL chose to live like him? Where would the infrastructure be then that enables him to make the choice he does? I'm not ripping on him, but when he mentions the old woman recovering from a stroke in the ...more
I sat there in front of the Tibetan Lama, wearing my maroon robes after years of studying Buddhism and said, "With all due respect, I don't believe the Buddha ever intended for his teachings to get THIS complicated!"
My teacher looked around at all the statues of deities with multiple arms and said, "The Buddha didn't do this!" he chuckled, "The Tibetan culture did; thi ...more
