Roshi Bernie's direct and simple language concentrates seemingly difficult and complex ideas into easily understandable and pragmatic gestures.
Clarifying and expounding these essential axioms of zen is a true treasure for not only zen practitioners but anyone interested in learning the rudiments of Mahayana / Soto zen Buddhist thought.
It doesn't get any better than this. These topics are central to any understanding of Buddhism, especially zen: I found myself underlining almost everything. Bernie Glassman's gift to us is a "desert island book": one of a few I would choose if marooned! It's that good.
