Tried, really TRIED, to like this book, but failed, utterly FAILED, in this effort!
Best wishes to anyone who reads it, I hope you enjoy it and benefit from the experience.
Seemed terribly pretentiious and self-serving, to me. No student of philosophy, I'm incompetent to judge the concepts illuminated, but . . . I suspect the logic presented more of the peyote/magic mushroom/LSD variety than conventional philosophic analysis.
Regardless, I confess: My own best-seller has yet to be published! Zen (and all that) is a very successful and popular book, I do not resent the author's success. Yet, I fall on my knees, thankful I was never ASSIGNED the thing to read! On my own, I got through about half; if you make it all the way through, please share your impression!
