It's an ok book but with such a naive and romantic understanding of Chan. I don't think it helped much in terms of understanding Chan. Mostly it is propagating the romanticized image of Chan, so maybe is even harmful for people who wants to understand. Yet, it's a good book to read if you keep a critical mind and NOT falling for the rosy images.
