Rating: 7

More punk rock Zen. A refreshing followup to the author’s first book, picking up where that left off and enlightening the reader on more aspects of Zen Buddhism. Everything from what enlightenment means to how to properly sit and meditate is in this book with plenty of irreverent attitude that punctures holes in preconceptions as effectively as any koan or whack upside the head (which, when you think about it, makes Zen kind of punk rock that way).
