From the Author
"This isn't your grandmother's book on meditation. It's for you. That is, assuming you like to have a beer once in a while, enjoy sex, have figured out that your parents are crazy, or get frustrated at work. It's a book that doesn't put Buddhism on some pedestal so that you have to look up to it. It's about looking at all the book and crannies of your life and applying Buddhist teachings to them, no matter how messy that may be." - from the introduction of The Buddha Walks into a Bar: A Guide to Life for a New Generation

I'm a fan of the conversational approach that Lodro takes here, and
his authenticity shines through.
Simply put...I'd highly recommend this book.
The ideas shared inside have had an immediate impact in my life, or better
yet, the perception of it.
My wife would tell you I'm a more patient,
understanding, and mindful person.
It's incredible how investing just 30 minutes of reading, and few minutes
in silence (meditating) each morning, can shift your world completely.
I should also add, that while it's one thing to be entertained by a book
(which I felt this was),it's a whole
other thing when you notice yourself
looking at the world differently because of
what you read.
I'm constantly learning (being reminded) that there's tremendous value
in pausing for a moment,
noticing what's going on, and through
this observation, gaining control over that
which IS in your control, and letting go of the
This book is well worth the investment of time, energy and money.
Thanks Lodro. Nicely done.
