All Systems Red by Martha Wells
"Once again, I decided to pick up a book essentially because it won a Hugo award, even though I haven't had too much luck with that selection technique lately. This one was OK, although there was a bit too much action writing, which isn't really to my liki..." Read more of this review »
Skin in the Game by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
"There are a lot of unpopular ideas in this book, even more than previous works of Taleb. It challenges some of my dearly held beliefs acquired through reading science books and skepticism!

“Monks ought to behave like a grinding stone: Changsan comes to sharpen his knife, Li-szŭ comes to grind his axe, everybody and anybody who wants to have his metal improved in anyway comes and makes use of the stone. Each time the stone is rubbed, it wears out, but it makes no complaint, nor does it boast of its usefulness. And those who come to it go home fully benefitted; some of them may not be quite appreciative of the stone; but the stone itself remains ever contented......”
D.T. Suzuki, The Training of the Zen Buddhist Monk

“No amount of wordy explanations will ever lead us into the nature of our own selves. The more you explain, the further it runs away from you. It is like trying to get hold of your own shadow. You run after it and it runs with you at the identical rate of speed.”
D.T. Suzuki, Essays in Zen Buddhism

Thich Nhat Hanh
“drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it as the axis on which the world revolves”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“Perhaps there is after all nothing mysterious in Zen. Everything is open to your full view. If you eat your food and keep yourself cleanly dressed and work on the farm to raise your rice or vegetables, you are doing all that is required of you on this earth, and the infinite is realized in you.”
D.T. Suzuki, Essays in Zen Buddhism

“As far as the content goes, there is none in either *satori* or Zen that can be described or presented or demonstrated for your intellectual appreciation. For Zen has no business with ideas, and *satori* is a sort of inner perception -- not the perception, indeed, of a single individual object but the perception of Reality itself, so to speak.”
D.T. Suzuki, An Introduction to Zen Buddhism
