By Maciej on September 8, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
This is almost the same as 122 Zen Koans, soo ... if you don't understand koans, reading this won't help you either. It's just a "simplified" version, but I personally felt very little difference between those 2 books.
I didn't bought the book, this is my experience based on a sample of this book.

Zen koans can be very difficult to understand with western intellect. This book uses language in a way that is easier to read, but still requires more than intellect to fully understand.

A great selection of Koans in clear english. Revelations that are immediately accessable and instructive allowing the reader to grasp the Koan concept and the thinking behind it through the experience of the Koan itself: A moment of revelation.
