Ezra Bayda speaks from the heart here and the language is easy to understand.Unlike some other books on Zen you will not come away from this feeling like "yeah nice idea this Zen but I find it a bit intimidating" All the chapters in this book are concise and very readable,and each chapter deals with a different aspect of Zen.
I really enjoyed the chapter on practising with fear, it struck a chord deep within me and has triggered some "interesting" nostalgic memories.Ezra Bayda has not been sheltered from pain and his battle with immune disorder does add even more credence to his teachings.
This is by no means an epic read but I think its money well spent.
