Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lighthearted but impressive collection of quotations on all aspecs of Zen from Life to Death, BC to modern day, & everything in between. A great place to start searching for those aspects of Zen philosophy which interest you. Quips from Yogi Berra to the Buddha make this a wide-ranging and sometimes moving collection I've read time and time again.

very zen in itself, and admittedly a "finger pointing at the moon", this book gives a great flavor of zen and shows zen's varied forms as well as zen's freedom from a particular time. Great concept, great quotes, great book.

I first bought a paper copy of this book a few years ago, and enjoy flipping through the collection of quotes whenever I need a bit of inspiration. I bought the Kindle version so I could access the quotes on the go. The content of the book itself is 5-star, but the Kindle version formatting is poor -- it makes all of the quotes run together and doesn't preserve the formatting of the paper version. This is why I only gave it 4 stars. If you haven't read through it, you may want to get the paper copy.
