This review is from: The Gateless Gate: The Classic Book of Zen Koans (Paperback)
This is the classic set of koans with teisho written in a modern style. You will not have to struggle with arcane language and metaphors. Yamada explains the older metaphors fairly well as well. You can get to the meat of the matter rather than the semantics!
