Read this based on Steve Job's biography and a half-assed belief that subject matter like this would generally be a good thing in my life. This book isn't a good starting point to get a sense of Buddhism/Zen Philosophy or meditation. It's a series of open ended, vague, lectures... which I'm sure are GREAT if you've got a basic understanding of the fundamentals of the discipline. I didn't, thus it drove me crazy.

With that said, I usually read this before bed after a long day at work... that probably didn't help comprehension.
