This book has become an indispensable resource. What truly makes it special is Yamada Roshi's balanced blend of contextual history and insightful commentary for each koan. Without saying too much, he is able to give the reader a little push in the right direction. Whenever I find my motivation waning, I am always able to find inspiration and wonder here. Whether you've only been sitting for years or whether you've never tried koan practice, this book will become a valuable companion for your practice.

The Koans in this book are quite deep to understand.
It takes time and a lot of work understanding the art of Koans.
