It has observations on life not commonly seen or understood. The author points out the eternal nature of struggle from then and now without being negative at all. "Nothing new under the sun" except for maybe his wording.

There is no reason not to read this book. It helped crack open one of our deep cultural narratives here in the West - the journey - and it skillfully uses another tool, Zen Buddhism, to invite us to dive fully and with equanimity into our own everyday and ordinary lives - the mistakes, the sleepiness, the victories, the distractions, the loves, the losses, the awakenings, and ultimately, the homecoming to ourselves and others.

A Zen student for nearly fifty years, I've searched for my identity while publishing both poetry and law books. But Roshi Fischer makes sense of all my wanderings while providing insights I can utilize until I die. What's more his prose is crisp, clear, and arresting as any I've seen on the subject of Americans' ceaseless search for life and meaning.
