    • I found Bernie s writing style to be easily approachable, yet deceptively deep his grasp of the material and ability to reiterate some very difficult philosophical concepts is impressive A wonderful read for those who are just beginning their journey of awakening, or even for those like me who are looking to find a way to turn these deep inner realizations outward I look forward to reading of Bernie s work on engaged Buddhism.


    • An enjoyably easy going, informative and corrective read It has the potential to change your whole outlook on what you think life is.


    • Parts of this book are awesome, while others I thought were kind of hard to follow It s worth a read though if you re interested in an overview of Zen practice.


    • Another excellent and instructive find While clear and direct, the writing seems technical and less organic than that of other Zen teachers whose works I ve encountered, in particular Shunryu Suzuki and Thich Nhat Hanh, but I m inclined to chalk that up to native English versus translated English than to anything else A bit too abstract in places for my taste, but perhaps it ll be made a bit clearer as time goes by Overall, very well worth it, especially the section on the Heart Sutra.
