Format: Paperback
I was excited to read this book as it covers two of my interests: Rand and Zen. But this book is ultimately flawed because it seeks to reconcile the two viewpoints without any logical connection. Rand unambiguously expressed her disdain for Buddhism in general and zen in particular. Buddhism because it practices altruism and Zen because it denies any ultimate reality. Objectivism at its core is about one thing: rationality. And then she goes to explain what that means which is that there is reality and everything else. I personally believe, as I think most do, that she was too rigid but had some worthwhile ideas. Zen too can be too loosey goosey but has value. These systems can't be reconciled nor should they; the healthy person just doesn't take an extreme. This book makes a connection where none exists, claiming that Rand's view of happiness is in Buddhism and that zen is objectivism. The links are not based on argument but on the author's statement that this is so. It is weak and unpersuasive reasoning and diminishes the greatness of both systems of thought. Skip this book and read Rand and read a selection of zen literature instead.

As a Buddhist who is not much on the metaphysical or pacifist aspect of the philosophy I find this book to be very interesting. It gives some very practical viewpoints and shows that Rand had some very interesting opinions on human behavior and society, along with some fairly off center opinions as well. It is a good book in my opinion simply for the fact that I never see authors on Buddhism break it down into its more practical aspects and compare them with other Western philosophy.

This is the kind of book that I have been looking for. I really enjoy the physiological views presented and merged in a system of thinking that I can relate to in a very real way.
It is so good that I showed and mentioned it to my co-workers and they too chose to read it in full.

Thank you Mr. Morgan D. Rosenberg!!
