This is quite a book to read by a doctor who is looking at the Brain
from a western perspective and trying to align it to an eastern model.
He goes on a journey to Japan and undergoes his own zen path, full of doubt
and fear a good thing and comes up with an greter understanding of zen and the brain.
It is a book that you can read time and time again, and it is a great lesson on how little we know of the brain and our acceptance if at all of what we do not fully understand /comprehend.
It is a real eye opener and each one who reads will have a differing perspective, but we will have gained whatecever it is we need to know at that moment.
