I was given this book as a joke way back in the 80s by my friend Derek. Derek was the kind of guy that, when most people met him, usually people said, "Wow, what an asshole!".

Maybe I'm just not as open to zen and meditation as I'd like, or maybe it was his assertion that men are always better drivers than women that turned me off early. (yeah, he says that)
