Give it try, now or later,
This review is from: Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind (Paperback)
There are some different opinions on whether this is for beginners or not and whether with a bit of knowledge about Buddhism you might enjoy this more.
If I had read this as a beginner I know I would of struggled and it will be helpful perhaps to tell you why. At the onset I just needed to learn the fundamentals of the practice without being given all the meaning of Sanskrit and Japanese Buddhist terms etc. So a few years in and having learnt slowly yes this book is now something of value with insightful and contemplative writings.
So if you like to get right into it at the onset this book is for you, if not check out some other books or better still go to some classes.
