This is one of those books you'll need to go back to over and over again--not just because it's well written and understandable, but because it will be so useful in continuing practice.
I don't know much about Buddhism or Zen, but Albert Low is able to explore the more obscure points in such a way that it was easy to follow. This kind of practice can be very challenging, but he makes it feel approachable.

His notes on the Vimlakurti sutra are very helpful
