I personally love this book. I'm currently reading it for the second time and finding it even more enlightening. I have found the insights into the hidden reasons we practice and our hidden self-hatred particularly helpful.
I think anyone "into" psychology will particularly enjoy this book (the author is both a psychiatrist and therapist).
This book has also made clear some of the basic concepts of Buddhism for me - such as "no self" and the meaning behind "life is suffering".
I've read 100's of books on Buddhism and zen and practice and this one is near the top of my list of favorites. Don't discount this one based on the amount of negative reviews - in my opinion it's well worth the read!
"It has been said that art is the replacement of indifference with attention.
Nuances that we normally overlook, in shape, color, proportion, and so forth are made the objects of our attention rather than blurring into the background of our perception."
And so it is with this book.
Fresh, bright, insightful. Author combines western psychology and Zen with cleverness and wit, allowing many insights for the reader, who, like myself, has been stumped for years by many eastern Buddhist teachings. Although I have little Zen experience, the book provided me with reassurance of the many questions that I have had after 20 years of meditation and attending retreats; questions for which I could rarely find even understanding from others, including teachers as well as peers, let alone helpful answers. This book has provided me with reassurance that I was understanding at least some of the teachings even if others were convinced otherwise or thought me too concrete. The book may not be appreciated by those who follow what they believe to be Buddhist teachings with all its trappings, as it often interprets the eastern teachings as interpreted by a western psychiatrist. In addition, this man appears to have genuine compassion, I am going on for more of his books.
