3 and a half stars. This was a good collection of (translated) pieces by historical Buddhist writers and saints as well as commentary by more contemporary authors, and would be a more than decent introduction to anyone curious about Buddhist philosophy. I especially liked the writings by the Zen folks, though some of the historical stuff was difficult to parse.
