Sales Pitch for other books

I really wanted this book to be what the description of the book promised. I bought it because I am interested in finding more principals and the actual concepts of zen but what I got was the sitters opinion on zen, a few pointers and 17 pages worth of his next book. really? To the writer, dude stick to what you promise on the description of the book. To the people reading this review, his writing style is good but be aware that it is all a set up for his next book.

This little ebook was ideal for me
As previewed ,with just the basics of Zen ,a good introductory book
Also enough to confirm that the basis of all religions is goodness and tolerance towards others

An interesting read, it's certainly provided me with food for thought and an inquisitiveness into Zen.

Andrew Daley gives a great introduction that is neither off-putting nor overwhelming.

I'm a 2x amazon No.1 best selling author (my Zen book has topped the Zen Buddhism chart and my Tao book has topped the Taoism chart), and I have also written innovative self-help and psychology books.

I'm also a management executive, meditation practitioner and dog walker. I live near London, UK, with my wife and daughter.
More about Andrew Daley
“In a nutshell, Buddhists understand that all negative memories are associated with problems from the past, even if only a few seconds into the past, and they understand that all negative worries are associated with problems of the future, even if only a few seconds into the future. So, by taking note of what’s occurring right now, in real time, people can escape from negative memories and worries.” 0 likes
“Optimism and positivity are very valuable to learning perfect mindfulness. Pessimism and negativity make it much harder to achieve expertise in attaining calm and tranquility at all times.” 0 likes
