I have studied Japanese tea ceremony in Kyoto for 23 years and during that time read almost everything published in English on the subject. This book is a real pearl, and covers in all its shortness the subject so well, that you hardly need any other information to transform your life into something more beautiful and meaningful.
It is a must for people directly involved with tea and Japanese aesthetics. It is a clear spring of sweet water that will quench the thirst of everyone. It is a source of inspiration, that can be integrated into any culture and be actively expressed in your own life style.
Read it and feel inspired to do something great and good, not only for yourself, but for all you know, for nature and our common future on this earth.

This exquisite little volume is food for the soul. It should be required reading for our species. It is a subtle wake-up call...which we need to take to heart...we need to re-evaluate what we produce. We need to re-evaluate the legacy we leave. This book illustrates the respect we should have for nature. It illustrates the inspiration we should find in nature.
We have become a society producing perishable goods, much of which has little or no merit. Mr. Koren opens our eyes to the merit of producing goods which earn dignity with age, use and wear. It is truly an aesthetic for our time.

This is a wonerfully crafted book of basic definitions for those who have never heard the term Wabi-Sabi. The pictures not only strengthen the points the author makes but also illustrate what he can't put into words. Wabi-Sabi is an aesthetic that mostly lives in the ditches, basements, and out-of-the-way places of modern American society. This book gives the license and some philosophical tools to explore the simple life as a thing of beauty contrary to the glittering clutter often thrown at us in every aspect of our lives.

Dieses Buch zeichnet sich durch eine beinahe ungewohnte Kürze aus. Der Autor skizziert für Nicht-Japaner, was Wabi-Sabi bedeutet. Er beschreibt geschichtliche Hintergründe, ästhetische Merkmale und Unterschiede zur "westlichen" Sichtweise. Dabei beschränkt er sich auf einfache, sachliche Darstellungen, ergänzt durch unaufdringliche Schwarzweiß-Fotografien.

Der knappe Inhalt des Werks reicht aus, um den Leser verstehen zu lassen, doch glücklicherweise lässt Koren dem schwer fassbaren Begriff des Wabi-Sabi auch zwischen den Zeilen genügend Platz zum Atmen.

I love this book! It reminds me of the scene in "Brideshead Revisited" when Charles Ryder looks at the Van Gogh prints and travel posters decorating his room, and says, "I detected a jejune air which had not irked me before ... only the golden daffodils seemed to be real." Be warned: after you read this book, everything in your rooms will "irk" you except some wildflowers in a jam jar, an unpainted wooden table and one black futon. And you'll go insane if forced to stay at a Holiday Inn! Just carry some acorns and chestnuts in the pocket of your old sweater, and you'll survive.

It brings to light a new way of seeing in an ancient way of being. It is a small simple book, fitting for its content, that allows you to open your senses as you read it. Wabi-sabi in a word explains what many know already, life is all there in nature. It also shows us the wonder of decay and the beauty concealed therein.

Amazons timeframe for delivery is very long, however this provider failed to deliver within. I am still waiting for the products- will never order again from here, very unreliable.

A magnificent introduction to an aesthetic sensibility I was always aware of, and appreciated, but didn't imagine had a name. Thanks to this small but finely-honed book I now understand the intellectual underpinnings of a profound way of looking at the world. Wabi-sabi--the name of this beauty/mindset--is the perfect antidote to my frenetic, digital life. I've given this book as a gift to friends and have received many heartfelt thanks.

Minimalismus aus japanischer sicht. Aber ich bevorzuege die grosszuegige Seite Japans, die sich wohl aus wabi sabi entwickelt hat. Anderseits sagt der titel ja auch deutlich an wen sich das buch richtet.
