If you read Daisetz's books, - to be compared to getting a breeze of "his" life pouring out of his books, you may be drawn to the universe you may find very refreshing and vividly alive. I wish that the words/ideas in his books can be made alive and help bring happiness for all!
I try, on the other hand, to not become too critical of Daisetz Suzuki. He is one reason Zen made it's way to the West, after all. In that respect I really do thank him, but also I must be true to the people buying books here on Amazon and give my take on the material at hand. If you want another book on Zen that sits on your shelf collecting dust, I have to say, I think you've found it right here. But to each their own, you may find it engaging as well.
