Bought this one directly from the author - very neat guy, humble, sincere, powerful. He led a Zen meditation class at the UU church in Providence. This collection of memoirs is a good read on its own - even better when you get a chance to hear David's voice and can imagine him reading you these pages.

This is a great little book. Its a collection of short essays by the author that illustrates the precepts and ideas of Buddhism using events in his own life. This book makes Buddhism more practical and accessible than books that focus primarily on philosophy.

A quite enjoyable light collection of very short pieces espousing a very Zen approach to life. I loved reading a few of these a night (they are only 1-2 pages each). Very uplifting.

Need to buy this one. Every two-page essay gave me something to think about. Definitely worth dipping into over and over again.
