Zen of the BEST
on 8 December 2004
If your a martial artist, or simply just curious about the philosophy behind martial arts, i would say you MUST read this!!! So many lessons can be learn't, and i have found this book a great help in my practice of Kung Fu and Tai Chi. My sifu actually recommended it to me, saying it was an excellent book, and one of which you can go back to and refer to time and time again. (Very true!!!)
Joe Hyams translates Zen, (which can usually be a extremely wide and complex subject), very clearly and simply from his own experiences in our modern western world. There are many excellent quotes, and some amusing stories of masters of old. I hope/intend to make use of the many wisdoms i have learnt from this book.
The only bad thing about the book was it ended far too soon. GO BUY IT!
